    Great place to stay in Sydney ”

    Made a reservation at Urban Newtown at a great price and it did not disappoint. The room is indeed smaller than the regular hotel room but it has everything I need. Was amazed at how they can squeeze a kitchenette in a room like this. Staff was friendly and the complimentary pastries & drinks at the lobby was a pleasant add-on. Location of the hotel was perfect; within walking distance from Newtown Station and so many eateries nearby! Will definitely stay here again the next time I visit Sydney 👍🏻

    Almost Perfect”

    Great little hotel. Free Mini Bar if you book directly with The Urban! Very friendly staff and the location is perfect, especially if you are attending a gig at The Enmore Theatre. Hundreds of restaurants and drinking holes to choose from. The only hiccup I had was that I pre-booked parking but I couldn't get into the parking lot without parking somewhere in Newtown first! Impossible. So I called the number that comes up on Google for The Urban and for over an hour I received a message that there was no one available to take my call. So I just drove around the block over and over until I found somewhere to park for two minutes whilst I organised to get my car into my pre-booked parking at The Urban. This was very frustrating, so just make sure you have The Urban's ACTUAL phone number on hand (0437 040 578) because the advertised number is serviced by some crap organisation. Once my car was finally parked, everything went perfectly from then on. I would recommend The Urban.

    Great value and top location!”

    We stayed at the Urban Newtown to see one of our favourite artists at the enmore theatre live. We paid a great low price for a studio and what we received was beyond expectations. Had a kitchenette, large bathroom, coffee machine, large windows and comfy bed. The best part was the artist we saw was staying the same hotel so you know its worth it. Very central location on Enmore road near the theatre, cafes and moments from king st. Would definitely stay again.

    Great location and friendly staff but...”

    We stayed for 5 days at the Urban Newtown. It is a very modern and light space that has an urban look. The room had lots of features including a kitchenette which is a great big tick if you want to stay in and cook (not that we did - too many great restaurants in the area).The staff are very friendly and are always happy to help. We definitely would come again however we weren't not made aware by Agoda that the lobby was having a renovation so actually not all the facilities were available to us which wasn't the hotels fault but it did mean we lost out. Also we found out that by booking direct the hotel offers a free mini bar but we were not eligible as we had booked through Agoda.

    Fantastic Room & Location”

    You could not ask for a better location of the Urban in Newtown. From the mural on the façade of the building, to the lush & musical courtyard - it is truly unique and excellent for short or long term stays. I was upgraded to the King Suite for my short business stay and was treated very well by the staff. The bed and pillows are really comfortable, the ginger root soap is divine, and the shower can fit 6 people! I would 110% recommend the Urban to everyone I know.

    The Urban was great value- we were pleasantly surprised. Newtown is a groovy area and a nice alternative to staying in the CBD. We estimated 20 minutes from leaving the hotel to arriving into Town Hall train station. The light breakfast was a nice touch and staff were always helpful. Will be back in a few weeks.

    Friendly hotel located within a short walk of the Enmore Theatre, handy for interstate visitors.”

    The staff at The Urban were particularly friendly and helpful, especially Brian and Meg, who went out of their way to assist us and make us feel welcome. A complimentary selection of fresh pastries in reception each morning was a nice gesture, including a paper bag for travellers who wanted to take something with them if heading off for an early start to the day. The provision of a microwave is a helpful addition and the rooms were spotless, especially the clean, white bathrooms. The main reason we stayed at The Urban was because of its handy location to the Enmore Theatre, which allowed us to walk back to the hotel within a few minutes of the end of a concert. Thank you for a nice stay!

    Very good”

    Hip new industrial style hotel in the heart of Newtown, close to restaurants, bars, cafes and shops. Rooms are small, but well appointed and comfortable, and good value if you find a sale price. The extras like snacks and beverages in the foyer (before 5pm) were a welcome surprise. The only negative would be the sound-proofness of the rooms - other guests could be heard loud and clear outside the room door, and of course this is a night life area, so that noise was persistent throughout the night on the weekend as party-goers went home.

    Could not fault it”

    Great hotel experience. Clean and tidy. Comfortable bed. Awesome shower. Everything you need for a comfortable stay. Great central location to rail amd busses and plenty of foodie options very close by. Staff were wonderful and went above and beyond our expectations. Complimentary fruit amd pastries were a lovely bonus. Thankyou Urban for an A+ travel experience.

    So nice and clean with well appointed facilities ”

    Everything worked! The bed was super comfy and the room smelled fresh and clean. Such a lovely stay so handy as had a show at the Enmore Theatre and had a big night in Newtown after.
