The funkiest hotel at the heart of the Inner West. Previously known as the Newtown RSL, the building has received an invigorating facelift and has been reborn as the sexy, stylish base for all your urban adventures!

Ladies, wanna get loose?

Adorned with a stunning, three-storey-tall mural by renowned Australian street artist   Fintan Magee, the hotel offers contemporary boutique studio rooms with a sleek industrial design, a “post-apocalyptic” future-chic garden courtyard, and a wine bar that hosts regular free wine and beer tastings, open from 5 pm each night. The rooms feature a free mini-bar, free Wi-Fi, and a flat-screen TV. Head downstairs for delicious, traditional Neapolitan woodfire pizzas at the Rosso Antico Pizza Bar, described as “the best Naples-style pizza on the strip” according to (they also make a mean tiramisu).

The Urban is located just two minutes away from Newtown Station and is but a skip and a jump from the best that Newtown and Enmore have to offer. Why not make a night of it? Catch a rock concert at the famous Enmore Theatre, followed by a classy cocktail at Earl’s Juke Joint or fine dining at the acclaimed Hartsyard; top it off with award-winning gelato at Cow and Moon, and then head down for a late-night boogie at the naughty and notorious Sly Fox Hotel (don’t miss Sydney’s premier lesbian night Birdcage every Wednesday night!).

And this is just the tip of the iceberg – there are bars, cafes, cheap eats and restaurants around every corner, and all but a leisurely drunken stroll away from THE URBAN, so you can crash with confidence!

So why not skip the tourist traps and the endless traffic of the city centre, and party with the locals in the trendiest part of town. And make your base THE URBAN… The Ultimate Newtown Address.
