A very nice little (17 rooms) boutique hotel that reminds us of a place we stayed at in Paris. Every employee we met was extremely nice and helpful. Rooms were spacious and the rain shower in the bathroom was a huge bonus to wash away the daunting humidity. We stayed in room 200 and it was pretty quiet. If you... More

We had a great stay at this boutique hotel. Close to everything. The beach is one block away; Starbucks is around the corner. Espresso in the room. Very clean and well appointed rooms. All staff were friendly and accommodating. Serita was especially helpful and the stay could not have been better.

Loved our stay at the Hotel Impala! Perfect location in the heart of it all, yet feels secluded at the same time, near all the shops and restaurants and a block away from Ocean Drive. The hotel itself is great with a mediterranean feel and the staff super friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended!

This hotel is great. Beautiful rooms and friendly staff. It is walking distance to Lincoln Ave. mall and to the beach and to nightclubs. My husband and I spent the weekend here and would stay again. Parking is not easy in this area and it is worth using the valet.

The hotel only has 17 rooms and isn't anything ridiculously fancy but everything it does it does perfectly. The staff at the front desk are all very helpful, the whole building and front courtyard/ garden is beautifully decorated and has an italian townhouse/ Versace-esque feel, the beds are comfy and bedroom is clean and the bathroom is pretty and everything...

Amazing place in the heart of south Beach. Few minutes walk to ocean drive,comfortable beds and immaculately clean toilets. Loads of places to shop and eat around , few of them opened round the clock.The staff was very cordial and helpful. I am definitely staying back in this beautiful property. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the Impala for one night after a cruise and found the hotel very nice. Romain, who was working the front desk was extremely helpful and pleasant. He went out of his way to help us in any way he could. I would recommend this hotel when staying in South Beach.
