NO, do not stay here. My boyfriend and I had to get a hotel room last minute, we came across The Richmond Hotel. Unfortunately for us, we were placed in the "studios." Well, if you want to feel UNSAFE, feel dirty, then stay here. The amenities at the actual hotel were nice, but the overall stay was just not okay.... More

We have recently made several upgrades, and one of them is a brand new security gate. All guest's must have a code to access the Studios. The Studios also offers complimentary WIFI. We have also recently installed... More

Good accommodation and great location. The studios are spacious room with kitchenette across with independent access the street from the main hotel. Rooms are large, approx. 300SF. Like many other affordable accommodation in South Beach, the building is an old art deco building which may need some refurbishing. For example, the bathrooms still have the 1950s tiles and fixtures, but... More

My partner and I sought to save some money by booking via Expedia at the Richmond Studios. The ONLY good thing that I can say about our unit is that renting it enabled us to take advantage of the amenities at the Richmond Hotel, a block away. We arrived early, 10 am, after disembarking from a Norwegian Cruise, and were... More

Just stayed at the Richmond Apartments. If you know South Beach you'll know that these are a bargain and you are in a very good area...safe...close to everything. If you're expecting the Ritz Carlton then pay that price and stay there...it's a block down the street. If you're the type of person that huffs and puffs and looks at every... More

Dear Guest, I'm sorry your stay with us, was a negative experience. The Richmond Apartments is our smaller sister property, and offers only 16 rooms.

I admit I was very worried after I read these reviews on TripAdvisor, but at the time I didn't have much choice. I was traveling to Miami Beach for a conference on a very limited budget and the other options within walking distance of the convention center were well out of that budget. The first thing you need to know... More

The "suites" are a block and a half away, on a shady side street, with homeless people taking residence in the outside stairways. The outside smells like urine, the rooms have outside access (and doors that are pretty much see-through except for the broken blinds), and there is no locking gate on the street entrance. The floor was dirty (left... More

The Richmond Studios are our budget-friendly option located on James Avenue (one block from our Collins Avenue property and the home to many other hotels). It features "old Miami Beach" charm and has been a successful lodging alternative, especially in the past six months, and has been refurbished and now offers daily housekeeping and complimentary WiFi service to our guests....
