I was amazed at many of the previous reviews for this hotel? Yes it's in a quiet area surrounded by newer and bigger apartment blocks, but there are shops services and restaurants within easy walking distance and you can travel by bus as far as you like for little more than two dollars. Admittedly our initial impression wasn't good. We... More

They really spruced things up since I last stayed here. The lobby is now very attractive, the rooms have been redone, the service is very good. I definitely recommend as a great antidote to the crazed atmosphere of South Beach. The Sea View feels like you are stepping back in time (in a good way!) to what the Miami Beaches... More

Stayed September 2013 We booked this place through a travel agent, lovely service from the people was a standout. Very friendly, rang to check if the room was ok once we checked in.

I generally felt great there - had a nice and large room with sea view. All a bit old fashioned, but undergoing modernisation currently. Super fast and free WiFi. Downside was the slow breakfast service, ordering a la carte as we could not go to the continental buffet for some reason. At checkout I nearly oversaw that they had some... More

My husband and I stayed in three different hotels in Florida this was the Miami beach stop off. It isn't in the centre of things which suited us but others may prefer to be nearer to the bars and nightlife. We were welcomed by an unsmiling receptionist who was reminiscent of Mrs trunchball from Matilda. The concierge who took our... More

Stayed here in September, it's about half an hour by bus to south beach, there was literally 10 guests in the hotel and they still wanted to charge us $10 for a chair at the pool. Crazy as there was no one besides staff at the pool. On our last morning our toilet over flowed and water went everywhere (disgusting)... More
