We got a great deal for this hotel-the service was impeccable and the location was perfect. If you want to experience South Beach this is a great option for you to stay. First of all we stayed here after a cruise, so we arrived very very early. Our room was not yet ready however the gentlemen at the front desk... More

VERY basic room, no bells and whistles. I think it's overpriced for what you get, but cheap option for that part of town. Location is the best part, a block from Espanola Way, and a block from the beach. Really laid back staff, but helpful, would stay again next visit.

Totally not what was shown on the website and nothing but excuses! No Bar or Cafe in the lobby as told on the web. Had to fight for maids to clean my room everyday! No wash clothes! Broken AC in room! Broken Clock Radio! Broken Shower! Broken Ceiling Fan! Nothing worked there but me fixing everything that was broken!

Where do I begin.......First of all when we arrived the room key would not unlock the door. Front desk staff came up to assist and they did open door ......but the battery in the door lock was low so you had to jiggle the handle to open it. I explained to staff that was unacceptable and we would like another... More

I visited with four ladies for a recreational trip over Easter weekend and Luciano at the front desk took care of us the entire time. He made sure we had any supplies we needed, replaced keys, was incredibly knowledgeable, patient and friendly. The location of this hotel is amazing. The rooms do leave much to be desired (no water pressure... More
