The rooms are nice with a great modern design. The beds are some of the most comfy I have stayed in. I really liked the design of the entire property. It is a few blocks north of Prime 112, a yummy steakhouse. The restaurant in the lobby was delicious and I would recommend. The beach is right across the street.... More

Really nice hotel, friendly staff, great location. Disagree with the daily resort fee but this is everywhere. Food was a bit pricey but good. Rooms very comfortable and spacious. Lovely roof top pool.

We have been twice in the Sense Beach House with our children, we appreciated the small size, the good situation in South Beach, the cosy rooms, the top floor, the restaurant menus and the very good service of Aniko and the team. We had a very nice time. Pia from France

We booked the hotel, based on the review scores but were a bit disappointed after a stay in the Hampton Inn Brickel. The good things first: we arrived around 10 after a cruise and our room was already ready.There is a wonderful pool on the roof and the area is one block from the beach. What was less good was...

She was very helpful in letting me know of things to during my one day stay. My room was clean and very relaxing. The best sleep I had in a long... More

We found this small hotel searching for a not too much expensive place in South Beach. When you approach there you don't see the hotel but a small and pleasant restaurant bar, called The local house, in the corner of Ocean Drive. But this place is linked to the annex hotel with a small pastel painted reception, a mix of... More

Just returned from an amazing weekend in Miami. I have to say I initially had reservations about staying at a boutique hotel just because I didn't really know what to expect. My reservations thank goodness were unfounded. This is the perfect base hotel for exploring south beach.The hotel has a worn distressed private beach house vibe to it.The rooms are... More
