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

Although the location of this hotel is great (walking distance to the beach), the website is extremely misleading in terms of the pictures and lists of amenities. The hotel/rooms are described as 'futuristic'...well this is not the future I am hoping for. The rooms are very small and extremely loud (road noise, other guests) due to the thin walls and... More

I am glad I listened to my wife and stayed here. We considered staying a big name place instead of boutique hotel. Great choice to stay here. Rooms were clean and very friendly staff. In the heart of South Beach. Spacious rooms. Very modern Miami look. We could walk to everything. Young lady at the front desk gave us great... More

My husband and I stayed here over the valentine's weekend and I must say we had the MOST amazing time. The Accommodations were spectacular and the service staff was great and very helpful. The hotel was super clean and centrally located. Cant wait for our next vacation, definitely coming back. Nothing beats Miami Beach!!!

I had the best time at the Royal!. My room was very clean, well-appointed, and the bed was very comfortable too. All of the staff was accomodating and friendly. Mel, the manager, was so kind to recommend places to eat, drink, and shop. The best part was that The Royal was two blocks from the beach! When I come to... More

When we arrived to check in, the hotel had given our room away. This room was booked months in advance, confirmed by telephone twice and all of our paperwork was complete and at the reception when we arrived. However, the hotel was oversold and they gave our room away. Incredibly unprofessional and caused us to stress about whether we would... More

I was very unhappy with this hotel. From Rude staff, old unclean rooms, to very misleading advertising. It was very Noisy. Great location though. TV is too small to see from the bed. There was hair and dirt/sand on floor in both bedroom and bathroom. Rooms were of a no of musty smell.
