“Great Find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

I stayed for one night on a recent business trip and found it to be much better than my previous stays in Miami. Room was nice and comfortable. Staff was very pleasant. The pool looked nice, but I didn't get a chance to enjoy it. Parking is quite steep at almost $30/night (taxes and fees included) but there seemed to be lots of street parking nearby. Convenient and safe location. I walked about 30 minutes through nice residential streets to a strip of restaurants that were well off of the tourist map. I would definitely recommend this hotel to a friend.

I stayed at Hotel Urbano this past week-end for two nights. I was in Miami to attend a wedding at The Miami Seaquarium. My choice of hotel was based on the Tripadvisor. I found the room very comfortable, mattress was comfortable, there was an odor???? "Moldy smell" . I did spray an air fresher which helped. I suggest ??? Plug in room fresher. The shower was very large but the floor was slippery,???? A shower mat to prevent falls or injury.
I enjoyed breakfast in your restaurant, blueberry pancakes. They were delicious. Service was quick. The entire staff was warm and friendly but professional. Juan and Katrrine was extremely helpful in giving me directions to the Dadeland Mall via Metrorail. Jarrell made arrangements with transportation (Saul).....he was always on time and transported me to Grove Isle and the Seaquarium for all my wedding function. I do recommend using Saul for all transportation needs, he charges around the same as a yellow cab , but vehicle is new , SUV clean , roomy and Saul is very professional. Jennifer (Bar) accompanied me to my room to assist with my gown for the wedding...Urbano was in a perfect location . The trolley was very convenient .... Free and comfortable.i used pit to go to Pblix and found many nice restaurants/ cafés located around the downtown area . I also took a walk to the nearby museum...Vizcaya.
You are the "hidden" treasure of Brickell.
I look forward to staying with you in the future next time my travels brings me to the Miami area. Lineve M Lewis Big Canoe Mountains, Jasper Ga

You HAVE to stay here!!! The Hotel Urbano staff members were absolutely incredible during our stay!!! We flew in from an International flight early morning, and the front desk members did everything they could to make sure that we were comfortable! The aesthetics of the hotel were absolutely great- original, funky, and most definitely "Miami"... I can't wait to go back!

Our room was booked for a Saturday night, post-day cruise stay and our cruise was cancelled. We decided to come anyway, and explore the area. The staff was extremely accommodating about our change in check-in time, and everything else. While they were unable to get us checked in early, they were extremely helpful and efficient when we came back after a short jaunt to Key Biscayne...we were checked in, bags and bodies in our room in no time. This hotel's staff, to a person, is exemplary, in every way.
When it came time to venture out for dinner, the very last thing we wanted to do was get in our car--we'd been up since 2 a.m. Fortunately, the wonderfully helpful valet, (and I truly wish I'd gotten his name), introduced to the free trolley system that stops right in front of the hotel. These are delightful, air-conditioned and comfortable vehicles, and we were whisked away to the nearby restaurant and entertainment district within ten minutes. We had a nice dinner, walked along the waterfront, then to the area north of Brickrell around 8th. Fun and vibrant with a tremendous variety of restaurants, clubs and shopping.
The trolley had us back home to Urbano in no time, where we spent the evening sipping stout, well-poured cocktails by the pool, enjoying a comfy cabana and then the fire pit. This is an oasis of casual but elegant relaxation. Again, the amazing staff was always available and prompt, never intrusive.
The morning revealed a pristinely clean pool area, the restaurant's coffee was excellent--the lovely woman there prepared a sublime coffee tray for two for me, and all I had asked her for was two coffees to take back to our room.
Our room, while not overly-spacious, was well-appointed and the bed was extremely comfortable. The only thing that was a tiny bit inconvenient was that there was no stand or table upon which to set our bag. Not a big deal, just nice to have.
Check-out was a breeze, and --no surprise by then--the staff was utterly amazing.
We will come back to this hotel, without a doubt. It's a gem, and remarkably convenient as well.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights before cruising out of the Port of Miami. I really cannot have enough good to say! The staff is fantastic and attentive, the hotel is just the right size (only 65 rooms I believe) and well appointed. The pool area is wonderful and the restaurant is reasonably priced (their french toast in the morning is to die for). Great boutique hotel that gives you Miami flavour.

Others before have commented that it isn't near anything, but that's really not an issue as a 5 minute trolly rides takes you into the downtown and is easy to navigate. Picks you up every 15 minutes outside of the front doors of the hotel and runs I believe from 6am to 11pm (shorter hours on Sunday). Meanwhile the hotel is located in an area where you wouldn't hesitate to go for a nice walk or run by yourself (I stayed at the Hyatt downtown Miami earlier this year and would not have said the same there).

In summary, I will (and have) recommend this hotel to anyone going to Miami. It is a nice break from the big chain hotels with hundreds of rooms and makes it feel like more of a getaway. I'll definitely stay there for our next cruise out of Miami!

Room Tip: Pool facing rooms add that little bit more of a 'getaway' feel.

Want to say a big thank you to everyone at Hotel urbano for their warm hospitality and services.

Transportation from the location of the hotel is via the free miami trolley which is located just opposite it.

The rooms are very neat and well kept.

Wifi connection is fast and steady.

Should want to go around, simply ask and your shall find.

Thank you once again from a satisfied customer. Looking forward to patronising the hotel again.

Definitely need a rental car if staying here. Located right by causeway to key biscayne, which was convenient. Hotel parking is extremely expensive and valet only, but you can pretty easily find parking on the streets surrounding the hotel and save a lot of money (we did this for all 3 nights and it was the weekend too.) Room was ok but smelled funny/musty, then realized there were wet spots in the carpet from who knows what (hopefully just water) and they remained the whole time. We thought maybe due to a leak from some pipes? Also, the shower door opens inward and the shower faucet/head is directly behind the glass door, so it is literally impossible to turn on the shower without stepping in and shutting the door closed--- meaning you will be blasted with ice water before you are able to open the door and jump back out while it heats up! It was horrible! Front desk service was pretty good.
