      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.

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

      My form refers - just the shower pressure

      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!

      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?

      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.

      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 .

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

      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
      8.8

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

    • Older travelers

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

    • Couple
      5.8

      The location is very good! Price is reasonable!

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