We stayed at URBN for two nights last year on our way back, and it's a real surreal kinda feeling.
On one hand, you have this gorgeous boutique hotel, carefully detailed and decorated, the room, the garden, exquisite is no exaggeration.
But on the other hand, you can't help but feel like this place is run by a bunch of 18 year olds, who has no clue what a boutique hotel of this price bracket should be like. It's so ridiculous to the point that they (everybody) are purposely avoiding eye contact with their guests!! There is no greeting, no enthusiasm, nothing.
A word of advice to the owner: train your staff properly, or you wasting good money maintaining that gorgeous place. If you wonder what you lack, go into Puli hotel not far away, 5 star service there in every corner. What a pity...
