This is a boutique hotel with a difference. It is superbly located, comfortable and affordable with some of the best reception staff you could wish to meet (Yessy, take a bow). When you arrive at a hotel during the morning, you are normally told to store your bag and come back at the appointed check-in time. Not with this hotel.... More

First the good - the hotel is at the quieter end of SouthBeach. It is really nicely decorated. It is a block from the beach and they have beach chairs you can borrow. The bartenders and waitstaff at the little restaurant are very good and the dinner at the restaurant is excellent (brunch a bit less so - for example... More

We chose this hotel for our romantic getaway weekend with my husband, and it was an amazing home away from home! So close to the beach - just what the doctor ordered - and the room was inviting and cozy. Very clean, nicely decorated. We enjoyed the dinner at their restaurant downstairs as well. The French guy Cirille was extremely... More

This hotel is not on the beach but very close (2 min walk). I stayed there for a day to check out South Beach and I was very satisfied with their service. Their restaurant downstairs was very cool with outdoor tables close to the sidewalk. My room was very spacious and the bed was excellent. I got a room on... More

This is a very nice hotel, beautiful rooms and great location. However, be prepared to put up with an awful and unfriendly attitude from the staff. Also, they charge an extra service fee and 29$ per day for the parking. The first night we were here the wifi did not work.

I was very much looking forward to my Sense Beach House experience while attending a course in Miami but unfortunately a serious flu virus has prevented me from travelling.. I contacted the hotel 24 hours in advance of my reservation and explained that I could not attempt international travel. Regardless of my explanation, the hotel (and manager) would not refund...
