Guest reviews

  • Family with children

    Neat as a pin, everything you need is there and the decor is very stylish but functional, a little change from the usual hotel. Staff were very helpful and it's location was perfect for my needs. Grey college is around the corner (150m) and Mimosa Mall is a mere 50m walk away.

  • Family with children

    I completed a detailed form which was handed in at reception.

    My form refers - just the shower pressure

  • Group of friends

    We arrived late, after driving from jhb. The staff were extremely friendly, and remained that way. We will definitely be booking into the Urban Hotel next month when we have to repeat the trip.Thank you!

  • Group of friends

    I thought it was centrally located near all the sites worth visiting.

    Hated the leaking shower!!!!!! Really needs to be attended to.

  • Family with children

    Plenty of parking. Peacefull. Neat and clean and close to shopping facilities. Staff were professional and it was a "different" experience as it is very different to the usual hotels. Rooms tastefully decorated and had everything that one needs when away from home. Will definitely refer it to friends and family.

    The glass panel in the shower was a bit weird. Would it not look better with a bit of sandblasting halfway up to allow light to still come into the bathroom area? Maybe a tinted film on the window sort of halfway up?

  • Family with children

    General repairs are needed eg. Loose shower door and toilet flusher, broken plugs, no two pronge plugs for hair driers etc, interleading doors need attention.

  • Group of friends

    Very convenient from where we wanted to go e.g. rugby stadium as well as shopping mall. Had a good rest on a wonderful bed. Thx so much

    The comfortable bed

  • Family with children

    The staff were very friendly open arrival and explained to us where the room was and facilities available.Room upon arrival was very tidy and clean and even smelt fresh.We have stayed over at a lot of hotels but The Urban felt really really comfortable.Bathrooms and shower amazing.Higghly recommended.They even provided us a baby cot at no extra expense which made things easier for us.

  • Single

    Excellent Rooms,Service,Bar,Breakfast Very Good................Top Place for the Money

  • Single

    Staff efficent and friendly even though booked in @ 01:30 AM. Room was clean with all normal amenities fully functional and toiletries provided .

    One point of concern is the lack of statutory signage as well as the use of key break glass units at emergency exit doors which are non compliant .

  • Older travelers

    We loved the Architecture and the room layout. It is modern but stil warm. Staff was competant and friendly.

  • Couple

    I enjoyed that the hotel was centrally located in Bloemfontein, the facilities were decent and very well managed. I also enjoyed the modern feel of this hotel. It seemed to fit my personality perfectly: It is functional, efficient and pleasant.

    Because the hotel is so small; all of the facilities are outsourced, which slows down speed of delivery... eg. restaurant and laundry etc..Also the cost of the continental breakfast isn't in line with the cost of accomodation. R85 a meal is too much for a hotel where you're paying R400 per night to stay..

  • Family with children

    It is central, comfortable, modern and very good value for money.

  • Older travelers

    The clear - glass shower,providing no privacy at all!!!

  • Couple

    The location is very good! Price is reasonable!

    Noisy guests shouting continuously in the hallways at 2:00 in the morning! Hard pillows!
