I think this is a great hotel. It was my first time in Miami and I really enjoyed my time there. The weather was perfect. This hotel is quite small compared to others (if you go exploring) but the service was excellent, rooms were clean and tidy, decor was beautiful and the breakfast was delicious. I would recommend this hotel... More

We hope to see you again, the next... More

the proximity to the beach, the lounge chairs and umbrellas were key to what we were looking for and can't be beat. although the hotel is pretty far south of the main south beach attractions (clubs and lincoln road mall) it is right on ocean drive and walking distance to many great restaurants. breakfast was included and was satisfying. the...

Dear elainemaud Thank you for choosing the Lord Balfour for your stay in Miami. Thanks for highlighting our services, breakfast and cleanliness.

Excellent customer service! Everyone was really nice. The pool should be opening in January which will make the hotel that much better. Whatever we needed was at our fingertips I can't say anything negative about the hotel. I can't wait to visit again.

Nice boutique hotel, friendly helpful staff. Great decor, comfortable bed. Room is small, but has everything; bathroom is very small, but enough shelves to keep your stuff on. The only complaint is breakfast: If you trying to avoid carbs - go somewhere else. They only serve breads, buns, bagels, cereals, etc. No plain yogurt. Overall, it was good stay. Pretty... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Lord Balfour. The staff was friendly and the beautiful beach was super close. Plus, the fact that beach chairs, towels and umbrellas were included was a major perk. Devin and Amaury were very helpful. A great stay for couples that are into modern artwork and beach lounging.

My Wife and I stayed for two nights and the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. Superb location and amazing decor. If you are visiting South Beach you must stay here! There are beach amenities included for guests at the beach just across the road.

Dear "Desrak" Our location has been praised by many of our guests, by the proximity to the beautiful beach and to all the South Beach nightlife, but still in a residential neighborhood. Thanks for staying with us and we hope to see you back on your next visit to our city. Regards, Mauricio Martins - General Manager More
