“Great hotel”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

My husband, daughter, and I had two recent visits to Hotel Urban. The staff was extremely welcoming and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and elegantly furnished. We rented a suite and a superior room. On our first visit, our rooms faced the interior of the hotel, and when we returned, both our rooms had street views. Although we preferred the natural light of the rooms with a street view, the interior-facing rooms were cozy and very quiet. The hotel is perfectly located and is within easy walking distance from most of the sights we were interested in seeing. It is also a short walk away from some wonderful restaurants. The front desk staff was very helpful in making dining recommendations as well as reservations. If we have the good luck to return to Madrid, Hotel Urban is definitely where we'll stay.

Too bad it was only for one night! My wife had already stayed longer and this was my first time staying there. The hotel is chic, modern, sophisticated and very well located. Just a few blocks from El Prado and walking distance to Plaza Mayor. I really enjoyed it!

I always try to book a hotel that is a "home from home" design wise. This hotel is absolutely beautiful! The design of the hotel is also amazing, centred around a indoor "courtyard". The hotel is very modern in design but is sumptuous also with the rooms kitted out with leather furniture and fur throws. We stayed in a junior suite which was very very nice, with the bathroom separated from the bedroom via a glass panel. Staff are super friendly and very helpful. The location of the hotel is very central also, within walking distance of the main squares and fountains etc. The rooftop terrace and pool area is one of the reasons that I booked the hotel. We were given a complimentary glass of champagne on arrival which was a bonus! The hotel is very chilled and relaxed. So is Madrid. The Ice bar on the ground floor is also gorgeous. We only ate in the restaurant for breakfast which was delicious - would recommend scrambled eggs with bacon, but they cater for a variety of nationalities with pastries, fresh cuts of meat and cheese etc. The hotel is expensive but I feel worth every penny. I'm already looking to book another few days in Madrid next spring and will definitely be staying at the Urban Hotel.

The reservation we booked, via expedia, turned out to be exactly one week wrong. Urban said they couldn't help us. Hotels.com/Expedia also said they couldn't help us. Each one referred us to the other, multiple times... each time, however, with the reminder that it was a non-refundable booking. So, they still get our money. We don't have a reservation. We have to make a new reservation and pay them all twice. As you can imagine, we were NOT happy. After the third or fourth attempt, begging for help, Urban came through and said they could at least give us a new booking. Originally they said we'd have to change rooms twice during our five day stay, but then we got one room for the duration. They also said they couldn't refund us (because it was up to the "third party" to do that), but then, after we cancelled the original reservation, they refunded it to us. It was a huge relief and the front desk staff (David) and the reservation manager (Nuria) really made it happen. We're very grateful.
Aside from that, we just love the hotel. The funky bars, the well appointed rooms and it's fantastic location. Everything is walking distance! We can highly recommend it and we'll definitely be back the next time we're in Madrid.

Room Tip: We didn't visit the spa, or eat there, so cannot comment on that. The only advice for a quiet r...

Dear guest,
I regret to know that you had some problems with your booking. I would like you to know that the solution of your problem was checked with your travel agency and our central office in Barcelona because it was an exceptional problem and we are not allowed to refund any refundable rate.
Furthermore, I would like to thank you for your positives comments about our facilities and location.

Spent 3 nights there with a group of 7 friends.
Things did not start out well when we arrived as the rooms we had booked had only double beds, when we had specified that we wanted singles beds in the rooms. We waited 2 full hours for the hotel to get it straight.
Rooms were of very good quality, but extremely small. Not the most important though.
What really dispaointed me was the service. We spent quite some time at the hotel pool on the roof and ordered drinks and food regularly.
It took an average 15 minutes to get an espresso and 40 minutes to get a simple burger, whithout mentionning the fact every time we wanted to order, the waiter looked like we were asking for the world.
On the last day, just after checking out and paying the hotel over 5'000 euros, we went to have a lst drink on the roof. When the food and drinks came, we were asked to pay immediately and not in a nice way... What kind of service is that I don't know...
Overall it has quality rooms and is very well situated, but spend your money elswhere if not for the room, they apparently don't want it!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with view on the street.

Great position for exploring the city. From here we could walk almost everywhere. Even when we took a cab we realised nothing was too far and walked back.
The staff were very attentive and always trying to please. The rooms are a bit small, and ours on the side was a little dark. Saying that the rooms are very well appointed. Lovely roof terrace for late afternoon drinks (not cheap!). We ate in the restaurant on our last night. Fabulous food served with attentive staff. Would highly recommend.
