“Very good value for anyone on a tight budget”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Fortuna House is a very good choice for anyone on a budget. It is located in a quiet neighborhood that is about 10 minutes from downtown Miami. A main artery is within one block of the apartment house. There is free on-street parking.

The apartment furnishings were plain but very adequate. Our apartment had a queen bed, kitchen sink, refrigerator, stove, microwave, basic cooking & eating utensils, air conditioning, flat screen TV and high speed wireless internet. A couple of nice grocery stores and drug stores are nearby. It was a great base for our visit to Miami and Miami Beach. We would definitely stay at Fortuna House again.

Great location in easy to find artsy Wynwood/Midtown Area. It's on a quiet little side-street, conveniently located nearby the Port of Miami and downtown Miami's city Centre and only 5 minutes from South Beach. My room was clean and comfortable, and whoever decorated it has great taste in design.
Helpful staff, quiet, and a pleasant stay overall. I'd definitely stay here again, especially for the price!

We came to Miami for a convention at the American Airlines Arena.
When we arrived we called the manager on the phone number to Fortuna House, 954-232-4705. She quickly called the onsite manager. We were offered a room choice between 4 rooms. We looked at the air-conditioning to make sure it was working. It cooled very well. We checked to make sure the tv was working okay and we made sure the room was clean. The bed and sofa very comfortable. We then picked a room downstairs for ease of bringing in our bags. For the rest of the stay everything was good. This is not a hotel. It is an apartment building . We wanted to rent something bigger than a hotel that had a kitchen this time for our vacation. The Latin Cafe on the corner served amazing Cuban food and was a real taste of Miami. We enjoyed our trip very much.

Was everything that the website stated except for the price was $145 instead of the advertised $125. Overall we would stay here again to visit Miami. Parking was free and easy and the Honduran restaurant around the corner was fantastic. Also recommend "The Daily" down the street for food.

If this property was in the 40-60$ range, I'd give it a "good" rating and walk away happy. However, at 160$ expectations are somewhat higher, and this property fails heavily at meeting them.
As they don't have a frontdesk, checkin was chaotic, I had to wait for quite some time on the street until incidentially a maid left the house. Service of any kind is virtually inexistent. Contact to the manager is by phone only.

The rooms themselves are quite small, very basic and except for the flat-screen TV outdated and worn, but somewhat clean (however, I encountered a gigantic cockroach in the hallway). There is 1 queen bed plus 1 IKEA-branded sofa which can be extended to be used as a bed (which was not easy) - both of them not really comfortable. The bathroom is exceptionally tiny. Any kind of amenities (including bathroom basics like soap, and coffee for the coffee machine) is not provided. There is no elevator (1st - 3rd floor), and staircases are extremely narrow. The WLAN however worked quite well. A/C units (per room) are old and noisy, but luckily windows can be opened - will get very hot in summertime though.

Parking is not "on site" (as stated eg at booking.com), but "street parking". As the property is in a quiet side street at least I did not have a problem parking my car.

Much of the disadvantages and procedures necessary to overcome them are "described" in an email sent only after the reservation by the properties manager. However, you don't expect to receive this email, so if you don't check your email, you don't get those instructions and are somewhat trapped.

The Fortuna House Apartments is an apartment building with a 3 star rating. Our pricing is in line with our location and we are affordably priced for our area and the accomodations we provide. There are staff members that live onsite. Because our front door is locked, we provide our guests with a phone number to reach the staff so they can check in. All of our furniture , air conditioners and flatscreen Tvs are less than 1 year old. We realize that everyone's opinion of new and comfortable is subjective. Thanks for your positive comments on ease of parking and fast wi-fi.

We stayed three nights as my dad is hospitalized at Mount Sinai Hospital in Miami Beach. As my parents live in the Florida Keys (Marathon), it was not feasible to make the 2+ hour drive every day. I was trying to find an alternative to the pricey hotels on South Beach and I found it at the Fortuna House Apartments. It was exactly what we needed - clean, equipped and cozy. We were in walking distance to many neighborhood restaurants and stores and very close to the port and Bayside marketplace. The on-site housekeeper is a sweetheart and made us feel right at home. Also, Esther (the Property Manager) made the whole last minute "rental" experience very easy for me! I definitely will stay here again, but I would recommend this place to others.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room #3 on the first floor which was very nice! Not much of a view, but the living spa...

Mature husband and wife on a 4 day stay in Miami over the Christmas break, we enjoyed our stay at this hotel, found it clean (which is unusual for a rental apartment complex in Miami), and with excellent predisposition from the staff to make our stay comfortable. The complex itself is old and the hallways smelly, but compensated by its good location in the midtown area, with free parking on the street, and a lower than the average price for a 3-star hotel.
