Editorial review:

The tall glass building that houses the hotel Urban is very hip and cool. It has clean lines and original artwork from Africa and Asia, with a small museum of Egyptian art in the basement. It’s a fresh change from other classic five-star Madrid hotels. There are dark wood floors and dark walls offset by plenty of light. The bathrooms are well appointed, with designer fittings. The roof houses one of Madrid’s best swimming pools. The terrace is delightful and beautiful on a summer evening. Rooms are on the pricey side, however.

          Loft-style Suite Duplex designed to satisfy all the senses: avant-garde style, exuberant luxury, space, natural light and views of the central Calle de San Jerónimo.

          Its distribution on two levels comfortably separates the sleeping area, on the lower level, from the work or rest area on the upper level. Its large single-pane window, measuring over four metres high, lets in natural light throughout the day.

          But this suite is outstanding for the materials used in its decoration: Wenge wood marquetry; glass and steel shower screens; black Zimbabwe stone in the glass walls in the bathrooms; and tropical teak furniture.

          Its decor is amazing: Art Deco rugs and steel furniture in the bedrooms combine with furniture by architect J. Hoffman, transparent Meridiana chairs by Driade, a glass headboard and bedside tables by Triade, the Italian leather sofa and Starck bathroom fittings by Duravit.

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              Modern, up to date hotel, very central to sights and city. Enjoyed roof top pool and facilities.

            • Couple
              7.4

              Every evening on the roof of the hotel there was a party and the possibility to drink some cocktails.

              Wireless internet in the room wasn't working good, very bad connection.

            • Couple
              9.6

              A perfect hotel in Madrid for business or leisure travelers who enjoy first class boutique hotels and attentive service.

              Many of the rooms do not have street views. At first this was a frustration, but eventually I forgot abut it due to the great interior design of my suite,

            • Family with children
              7.0

              The location is useful - easy walking distance to the major sights. No real concierge service but front desk staff were helpful.

              It really is a 4 star hotel with pretensions - the very little pool on the roof squeezed in by the restaurant is a useful touch if traveling with kids as I was. The restaurant staff (by the pool) were really quite delightful and frankly left the best impression - next time I am in Madrid and want 5 star I'll go to the Ritz though (it is what it is) where the concierge was more than happy to make suggestions to me even though I was staying at the Urban - says it all. Bottom line - nice four star charging 5 star rates - not a good formula - but a very good location....

            • Single
              8.2

              very trendy!

              some electric blinds and bulbs not working

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Very good located. 5-10 minutes walk to Puerta del Sol and Prado. Everything within walking distance Very friendly personel at reception with good knowledge of English

              you can't read in bed with the bedlights on (and even with the big lights on it depends). We were in Madrid when it was cold (+ 6 during the day, -4 night) and outside the room it was ice cold. The bar, the elevator : coat or pullover needed. breakfast very expensive @ 25 € / person and not exceptional : go outside and for about half that price, +/- 10 €, you can have good breakfast for the two of you !!

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              The location, design, facilities, comfort of the room but in all it is the perfect location from which to explore a fantastic city.

              The staff were a little abrupt at times.

              we loved attention to details, toiletries (smelled great!), friendly staff, fantastic cocktails and nibbles in the glass bar and the out of this world food in the restaurant

            • Single
              8.2

              Nice corner room, looking over the street. Noise level was not bad, and the room was nice. Roof top bar/cafe had a nice feeling over looking the roof tops of buildings, you can see for miles. Modern and cozy feeling in the hotel.

              My corner room 438, need little bit of maintenance, bathroom smelled funny, no light in shower. Shower door had some fungues. Internet was expensive but good speed. Breakfast area was adequate.

            • Group of friends
              10.0

              Every thing was really excellent .. The staff were really friendly helpful , great guidance , with a big smile .. Very modern hotel , very clean and the location was really perfect ..

              The breakfast was not included in the room rate not even an option when I did the booking so I can include it with the booking

            • Couple
              8.2

              The hotel's location is excelent, it stays close to most of the cities turist attractions while not far from the city center. Apart from that, the restaurants are excelent.

            • Family with children
              6.2

              Nice use of materials, excellent bed, friendly staff that leave you in peace when desired and do not hassle. Fantastic location.

              Rooms are tiny (I knew they were small) but worse they are barely functional. The wardrobe had very little space for example and many little details could have been improved upon, simple things that I would have expected a 5 star hotel to have noticed such as the bedside tables which could only be swung in an arc a certain distance from the bed so effectively they were always in the way and glass doors did not have stoppers so they clang when shutting and could be damaged.

            • Couple
              8.2

              Concierge service was very good. In general all staff was very polite and professional. Location, location, location. Very interesting Design. Very nice hotel bar ("glass bar"), with great design and nice cocktails but a bit pricey, and the food offered in the bar, though descent, was very expensive.

              Very poor (almost inexistent gym facilities). Room sound insulation was average. Only 1 (straight) hour free wifi. I believe in 2012 all hotels (at least 4 & 5 star ones) should provide free 24 hrs wifi service. This is a worldwide issue, not just this hotel. Breakfast quality, although good, was of very limited selection. Considering the offer at euro15/person one could say it was ok.
