Stayed here a while ago, but am planning to return soon. Don't expect a luxurious hotel and 5* experience: the hotel is outdated and in need of a renovation. However, the staff is extremely kind and the rooms are clean. Everything you need is there and the location is superb. We managed to book this hotel at a nice price... More

This hotel was everything we wanted. The staff are amazing, and made you feel very welcome and ever so friendly, as me and my friend (both London) quickly found out. The rooms are very clean and were always maintained to the very highest standards, we stayed 9nights and couldn't fault this place. Location is bang on where you want to... More

Fun to stay in an original deco hotel that still has design details from the past. The uplifting modern decore and color scheme add to it's charm. Beds/linens very comfortable. Very clean. We were in Miami for a trade show at The Miami Convention Center which was approx a 10-15 minute walk, as is Lincoln Road, one of the shopping... More

Some of these reviews are very misleading and the professional photos taken have to be photo-shopped. Here are my complaints: 1.) There's very little lighting in the room. 2.) The room is so incredibly tiny and I don't feel it was clean at all. 3.) The bathroom is tiny and the room we stayed in didn't allow the bathroom door... More

The Ukrainian receptionist lady, who we had to deal with when we first got there, sucks dearly. Ivis is the absolute best! The area and rooms, though small, are fantastic. Right in the middle of SoBo.

Clean medium sized room with a comfortable bed. Free included continental breakfast. Good air conditioning. Good rate from Groupon, $80 a night. I've seen rates of $400 which is too much. Three blocks to beach. Lots if nearby restaurants.

We live in a studio apartment near this hotel. We have many visitors from Michigan and Minnesota and need a place for them to stay. The Royal Hotel is a short walk to our apartment and to the beach. They provide morning coffee and breakfast and beachtowels and are helpful in every way.

This small hotel is clean with great beds and includes breakfast and expresso coffee. Best location in the deco district. Good value and friendly service. Beach is just a short walk as well as shops and restaurants and bus service. We were well satisfied and would book again.

First, we bought a Groupon for the stay....so the price was right for South Beach. The cons were the first thing that hit us. The hotel looks dingy and the pictures on the web site are not at all what we encountered. There is no hot tub on the solarium as on web site. The outside and lobby is rather... More
