Sense Beach House is the perfect hotel on South Beach. The atmosphere is calm and welcoming, rooms spacious, relaxing and very beautyful. The bed is really comfy and the bathroom large with a rainshower. We were lucky to be upgraded to ocean view room, which was great. The location is perfect. Two minuttes from the beach and Sense offer guest... More

Whenever we drive over to Miami from Naples and stay overnight we first try to stay at Sense Beach House. This boutique hotel reminds me of my youth growing up in our summer Rhode Island cottage. The hotel is clean and the location is perfect. Staff has always been friendly and the value is excellent. The hotel offers beach blankets,... More

We absolutely loved this hotel. It was super clean, beautifully designed, great location right next to the beginning of the strip of restaurants along the Ocean Drive, South Miami Beach. The service was also great, the hotel lets its guest borrow towels and umbrellas for the beach - great. The only minus for me was the vallet parking, which cost... More

If you want to have an amazing stay in Miami, this is the place. I have been in several hotels before in Miami and Sense Beach House has perfect location, spotless service, outstanding food, great decor, comfy and modern rooms, relaxing pool area and easy access to the Beach. Highly recommended and a place to be back.

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
