Pros: Nice quiet boutique-style hotel. Good location, near Lincoln Road shops and Ocean Drive. Friendly and attentive service, especially Roman at the front desk. Lovely bathroom. Cons: We found two small cockroaches in our room. There is no elevator, and hot and cold faucets were mislabeled.

Stayed here for 2 nights recently & thought it well worth a recommendation. Rooms aren't that large & bathrooms are more European than North American, but the place has ambience & great staff. And, the location is South Beach.

We spent only one night.....wish we could have stayed longer! Great service from the time I called for the room...to when I left. The room was clean....the bed and pull out couch comfortable! I felt like I was back in Italy. Close to everything walked to ocean blvd and Lincoln road.

The weekend that my girlfriend and I went was fantastic. The hotel was beautiful from the lobby to our room. The staff was hospitable and welcoming. Our room clean and a perfect location in the hotel to keep us from being disturbed with the street traffic in front of the hotel. This was also a birthday present for my girlfriend... More

Hotel Impala is a great place to say. The staff is amazing, and will make sure all your needs are taken care of. Hotel room is perfect for 2 people. The hotel has the best "bang for your buck" since it is in a great part of South Beach, very close to the beach, and is not super expensive. I... More

Needed a room for one night before heading out to Key West. Called and got a great rate (possibly because it was for that night - I had not planned well). Hotel Impala has a great location just one block off of the ocean. It is hard to find even with the address and driving five miles an hour. But... More

We stayed at Hotel Impala at the end of a week long vacation through the Keys. My wife and I and our two teenage kids shared a two queen bed room that was plenty big enough for us including the bathroom and shower. We got a very good recommendation for dinner at Havana 1957 only a few blocks away. LIncoln... More

Great place, great service and great location. Friendly and close to restaurants and the beach. The breakfast was wonderful and just for $10 per person, The room was clean and unique. The hotel was quiet even though street was noisy.
