My cousins and I came to Miami beach for a vacation and bachelor party we will never forget. The hotel was always spotlessly clean, and although it's a very old building, the renovations and decor make sure you forget about that. Every single staff member greets you with a smile and a hello when they walk past, and everyone is... More

What a little gem, in a great spot, less than 5 mins walk from the beach & Lincoln mall. Without exception, all the staff were friendly, helpful & attentive. The 2nd of the 2 rooms we had booked was for 3 adults & really wasn't big enough- in under an hour we had been shown a new room, which was... More

It's a very good hotel nestled in a really good area. You can walk easily to Lincoln road. All the staff were very kind, specially Sebastian. They have a pool and I was very happy with the room. Breakfast has many options. Definitely I will come back!

We stayed here on April 10, 2015 after our Bahamas cruise. The hotel is located in a quiet area but within walking distance to the beach and about 10-25 minutes walk to Lincoln Rd. Mall although if you will need a taxicab ride to go to the nightlife center of South Beach but still within 30-40 minutes walk if you... More

The hotel is very well located, near the main and busiest streets, but in a very quiet neighborhood. 3 min walking to the beach. The room was very spacious, and the bed and pillows were great. Our room was located in the ground floor, in front of the pool, and the windows did not open, so there were no fresh... More

We stayed at Pestana for just two days, but had a really nice stay there. The bed was huge and nice, and the bathroom was well sized too :) Nice receptionists, and good food in their own bar/restaurant. It was, however, spring break when we were there, and the room next to us shouted for two hours in the middle... More

Loved this quirky but stylish hotel. Friendly staff, great room, excellent location. Only bug bear would be breakfast charged at 12 dollars per day if booked in advance but 17 if you didn't. Staff willing to recommend alternative places nearby. Other than that, i would not hesitate to recommend.

We found the Pestana to be perfect for a short stay in Miami. It is on a quiet street but a very short walk to the beach, shops and restaurants. Our room was very spacious although the bathroom was starting to look a little tired and, since we were on the ground floor on the corner of the building, we... More
