We arrived after 5 pm.3rd floor. Smells like marihuana everywhere (maybe someone has a skunk for a pet!), Room was dirty. Cleaning lady came, cleaned shower. Dingy, very small, kitchen appliances look like garbage (many years ago I threw way my Teflon fry pens, which were 100 times in better shape). Shower does not drain, you have to stand in... More

I have some mixed feelings after staying there. I'll start with good once: Location is amazing! Helina (the maintenance lady) was very nice and cooperative. Room is spacey, looks like on the picture. That place might be much better, if it has gone through heavy cleaning. By cleaning I mean not removing obvious big pieces of junk, but actual cleaning,... More

WIsh I had read these reviews before booking, I never would have come. I rented 216 from Lucinda. The photos of the unit were accurate, although when we arrived the unit really needed some basic maintenance, like new paint. Kitchen and bathroom are old and not in great shape but everything worked. One big flaw, no coffee maker for some... More

Perfect spot on sobe if you want something affordable. It's not the 4 seasons but also doesn't come with the pretension either. Resto next door is great for tacos at lunch. Apt is under new ownership so updates are in definite need.

The location was great for bringing in the New Year. Access to get in the Barbizon was secured. The room was nice and bed was comfortable. They just forgot the washcloths and paper towels. And there wasn't enough toilet paper for the 7 days 6 nights stay. But overall, we enjoyed our stay.

To start with my review I must say: I payed 1554 dollars to stay 18 days at Barbizon. That's a fare price for the incredible location, but NOTHING fare to the conditions we had. First of all, I'm not used to luxury, but the unit #202 didn't even have a TRASH CAN on the bathroom. BUT, if you do put... More

We stayed at this Art Deco hotel property - Barbizon - Nov 12-18, 2014 room 211. I was a bit nervous, due to all the negative reviews. We arrived a bit earlier than check in and enjoyed a lovely cocktail at the front Mexican restaurant. Which also had a great $4.50 breakfast! Once we got inside, Helina met us there,... More

We contacted the property manager upon arrival and were told that our party was already checked in. Once that issue was clarified the property manager then expressed that she didn't expect us for another few days according to our reservation. After checking our contract she apologized and said 'no worries' the apartment is ready anyway. UNPROFESSIONAL and UNORGANIZED. There is... More

The owners don't make much fuzz about it, but this is not just near the famous and charming Art Deco hotel stretch on South Beach, it IS actually one of them. Right in the action, 2 minutes across the park to be on the wide warm beach. Ferraris and Corvettes driving by every evening...Perfect! Note: We had a 2nd floor... More

I stayed at #103 for two weeks and it was really great. The unit was recently renovated and the location is perfect for doing anything and everything in South Beach Miami. Just across the street (Ocean Drive) is the best beach in Florida! The owner, Josie, is very nice and helped make for an enjoyable stay in Miami.
