Not a bad hotel, clean room which was decorated in a tasteful and modern style. Was slightly irritated by being asked to pay for additional WiFi after 100mb, the majority of hotels in the area at this price point offer unlimited usage.

Just over two years ago I stayed in this hotel and loved the modern and clean look of the hotel, rooms were a little dark but everything appeared very well thought out and presented. Unfortunately upon returning in January 2016 my experience was quite different. After I checked in I realised there was mould in the shower. Not light mould... More

I found everything about the hotel pleasant. The rooms were nice and clean, and the open plan bathroom was sufficient. Prince checked us in quickly. Noise from the hallway does travel quite easily into the rooms, luckily we were at the end of the passage, and the other guests were quiet. I can see how this can be a problem... More

Urban Hotel is nowhere closer to what it looks like from the outside/website. The website presents an upmarket/classy hotel. I got disappointed as I entered the gate, very cold reception. Breakfast area in a very awkward open plan area at reception where all guests arriving walk pass. Rooms very dark. Service at breakfast appalling.

Hotel had a trendy look and feel to it. Staff are friendly. Breakfast options limited but sufficient for a quick bite. Room was decent size, bed was comfortable and the shower was a great height. Overall a great place to stay for one night. Would recommend it.

I would appreciate in future if the area mentioned above can be like a bar area (closed) not in an open plan especially reception area , where all the guests arriving can see people. Hotel is awesome.

Found this hotel a great place to stay and worth the money paid. Previously stayed in Bloemfontein elsewhere at much the same rate but Urban is a far better choice. Room was very clean. Bed comfy.
