I have stayed here twice for 5 days each time - once in March 2012 and again in May 2012. Both times we the building we stayed in was seperate from the main block across from a school but close to several eateries and on Espanola Street which seems miles away from the madness of Collins Avenue. The room itself... More

Only thing I like the most about this hotel is its location. It is located perfectly on the esponala avenue and washington avenue and less than a mile from the beach. Room was clean but small. I would recommend this place to those who doesnt care much about luxury yet stay close to the beach.

Me and my friends decided to go on a fun trip to Miami and needed a hotel with great location for some beach, some drinks, some fancy dinning and some shopping. This hotel was ideal for that. Its located right at Española Way (which is a pedestrian street that comes to life at night with so many cool restaurants). Beach... More

The hotel was part of a vacation package we bought. Spent the first night there, then we changed to a more suitable hotel for us. The rooms themselves were ok, clean etc. But we had to carry our luggage(and they werent light or few!) up the little narrow stairs to the upper floor(3rd I think) and one had to exit... More

We were a little concerned what this place was going to be like given some reviews but was pleasantly surprised. Our room was in the 500 block which meant that we had a quite room which had been recently refurbished. The room was a food size with a nice bathroom. Valet parking was reasonable at $18 p/d.

I stayed in this hotel for two nights, and I must say that it's really nice...clean, kind personnel, small rooms (but that's not an issue). The only bad things are that there is no elevator and if you got heavy bags it can be a pain....and the windows are too thin to cover the outside's racket (going on all day... More
