Viscay is a cozy boutique hotel, very quiet and clean, 1-minute walk to restaurants on Ocean Drive and 2-minute walk to the beach. Stayed there for a week in April 2008 with my wife and two kids (ages 3 and 8). We had a junior suite with a kitchenette, very spacious; kids slept comfortably on the queen-sized sofa bed. Unbeatable... More

We picked this hotel because it was close to everything and the website pictures looked decent. It was really hard to find parking. The parking lot close to the Viscay hotel charges $30.00 even if you park for 15 minutes. We found a parking lot a few blocks away for a decent price. When we arrived the front desk person... More

The Viscay is in the perfect location in Miami Beach. I was in the thick of restaurants, clubs, and the Beach. The Hotel is a small privately managed hotel. It is clean. The wireless works great. It has a European feel in that it is slightly spartan in a trendy, functional fashion. Their is no breakfast, but everything you need... More

This was my first time to South Beach for a Girls long weekend; several are turning 50 this year and having a semi-mid-life crisis of sorts. The girls stayed at The Beacon on Ocean Drive; a trendy, upscale hotel right in the heart of the SB scene. I was was much happier to have found the Viscay...one block from the... More

The room was clean and comfortable so no complaints when we first arrived but trying to sleep was another matter. The window was facing a main road which usually wouldn't be a problem but paper thin walls and no double glazing meant we got no sleep at all. We asked the manager/owner if he could move us and he said... More

My husband and I travel from the Shore Club and theOrlando to South Beach several times a year. We have stayed at numerous hotels in South Beach, including two of the five star hotels. We found Viscay several years ago, and stay there almost exclusively. The price and location cannot be beat. We compare it to many of the hotels... More

I thought the hotel was decent and safe for South Beach. The owner is the chief, cook and bottle washer and very hands on. He was a bit serious, but South Beach can be a bit of a zoo in February, so his attention to details, safety and security were appreciated.

We had an excellent stay here, with a large sunny, air-conditioned room, and a nice, super-clean bathroom. With a full-size fridge and sink, it was like a home away from home. And with the friendly, efficient service and super location (right down the street from the ocean drive action), yo u simply can't beat it for the price.!

A friend and I stayed at the Viscay for two nights (room #4) in a room w/ kitchenette from Apr 29-May 1/06. This was our first time in South Beach and we picked this hotel because of the location and price. The location was perfect - right on Collins in the middle of all the action, steps from the beach,... More

Our party of 9 arrived at 10:30 pm Friday the 21st of April. We booked a cruise from Miami 4 months earlier and wanted to go in a day early to see Miami. Actually, this website is what led us to book the Viscay Hotel even after a couple of bad ratings. Anyway, my brother called 4 months ago to... More
