I was going to be in South Beach for one night and wanted to stay at a boutique art deco hotel close to the Beach and Lincoln Road, so this seemed like a good option. After a long trip, we finally arrived... More

Only stayed one night after coming from the Keys before going to airport. It's on James Avenue, close to Collins Avenue and South Beach, for shops, restaurants, bars, clubs etc. so very convenient. Art-Deco hotel built on a quadrangle with a very nice pool in the centre, with a breakfast/drinks bar by the pool. Room was lovely and well equipped.... More

We arrived late at night, they had our room ready, very helpful! Nice room, in the morning right next door connected to the Hotel is a cafe for breakfast & coffee, pool right outside our room! They made us feel welcome, called a taxi for us in the morning! We'd stay there again! Very pretty area!

A short 5 minute all to Lincoln drive and a further 5 minutes to ocean drive. Literally 5 minutes to beach where there is a deal with sunbed hirers and the hotel for chairs and umbrellas. The hotel is clean and rooms spacious enough with good sized bathrooms. It's the location that sells it though, close enough to the madness... More

I recently spent the weekend at the Pestana in South Beach. I enjoyed the location which was 2 blocks from the beach and Lincoln Road. Pestana is a Portuguese property and is very European. The rooms were a decent size (three of us shared a room comfortably), always clean and nicely decorated. Only complaint was there wasn't really anywhere to... More

A small, friendly well maintained hotel, just a stones throw away from the beach, that I would recommend to small parties and families. I travelled as one of 4 friends, and on arrival I was lucky to upgrade one of our 2 twin standard rooms to a family size one at no extra cost. My jaw nearly hit the floor... More
