We were in the studio number 12 last weekend. We saw the studio on the web and we thought that it will be perfect for two days. But the problem was when we arrived... All the studio is wet. It is extremely wet. All the towels, the sheets in bed...also our clothes were wet after a while. And the worse... More

We have just spent 3 nights here before our cruise. The accommodation although slightly dated is clean and spacious and in an ideal location for the beach. Remember to check in at the hotel which is just round the corner. A special mention goes to Junior the breakfast chef in the hotel who cooked us a superb breakfast every morning... More

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

The worst experience I ever had in terms of hosting. I absolutely  agree with EVERYTHING  "said in his comment. The rooms are poorly maintained, noisy, old.

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.
