If you are looking for something different in Miami Beach, this is the place, my friend. It has a great GREAT location, only block away from the beach and surrounded by cool places to go out, have dinner or a drink, or go shopping. It's NOT as expensive as other similar boutique places around that very same neighborhood. In fact,... More

I'm writing this review, while lounging in this incredible bed. The room is immaculate and modern. The service excellent. In a town of overrated and overpriced hotels, I am so impressed. We even were upgraded due to our 'iPad issues' with lighting. This is my new go to hotel in Miami and worth every penny.

The staff even before I arrived answered all my questions and was very accomodating. When I got to the hotel I was wowed. The lobby is so nice and so was the staff. I loved the room and using the iPad... More

As with a lot of our trips these days we found the Marlin on TA, I was looking for a central South Beach location but just far enough away from the noise of the nightlife on Ocean Dr. The Marlin was in a perfect spot on the corner of 12th & Collins, built in 1939, we learnt, it was renovated...

I had a wonderful stay at the Marlin Hotel…. The hotel is VERY close to the beach and many restaurants, one of its great features are the use of an ipad which can control the room (Television, Room Temp, Lighting -mood and regular) without having to get up #PARADISE. Upon arrival someone is there to open the door and greet... More

I have been to the Satai last month, Marlin has nothing to be ashamed for!! It has its unique atmosphere created by the amazing interior decoration (kind of art deco and eclectic ). The rooms are great, space, smart electricity, large LCD, Hi-Fi. Breakfast in a box to the room. Many parking options. Right off Ocean drive, in a great... More

I had a really pleasant stay in this hotel. The location is perfect (really close to Ocean Drive), the staff is friendly and helpful (especially Ismeris) and the room is modern, clean and comfortable. I recommend 100% this hotel and for sure I am going to stay there again my next time in Miami.
