If you want to stay in SoBe, want an Art Deco hotel, great location and quiet haven to sleep in without breaking the bank, Pestana is ideal. Hotel is still less than 2years old, super clean with spacious rooms (for the beach). I love James Ave--Collins and lincoln are right there, but this street is quiet, peaceful, and worlds away....

This hotel within walking distance of Ocean Drive is the perfect hide-away when visiting Miami Beach. It consists of three Art Deco buildings around a swimming pool that can sometimes be a bit noisy in the day. The rooms are clean and large and have excellent wifi coverage. We had a room that was fitted for disabled persons, the downside... More

Recent reviews that all mention the friendly and helpful staff are spot on. The hotel is kept very clean and tidy - all day. The free wifi is fast. Make sure you look out for happy-hour in the bar and try one of the many cocktails or ice-cold beers. The Pestana is within easy walking distance of the beach, the... More

Very friendly staff, a clean room, a nice pool and within easy walking distance of Ocean Drive and Lincoln Road. Our only quibble was $30 a night for parking but perhaps that just reflects parking prices in South Beach and they did wash the car for us

This hotelgood because of the staff working on it. All are extremely attentive. The facilities are also good but needs minor changes such as noise, but the rooms are large and welcoming. The breakfast is American standard. We could have better options for dinner and a more extended time there since 20:30 closes the service. The beach service is paid... More
