“Lovely little place, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

We found this hotel via internet. All hotels in Miami (south beach) are expensive and this seemed pretty reasonable and turned out to be one block back from the beach which was a perfect location.
You have to look out for this place from the road - it is quite tucked away / small. Once getting to our room (which was on the ground floor towards the back, in the corner) we were pleasantly surprised with our room - there was a bed / sofa area which lead to a kitchen and bathroom (with a back door). It was a lovely light and airy self catering area.
The receptionist was friendly and we were able to leave our suitcases with her while we had a few hours to kill before leaving on our last day.

I would definately pick this place to stay again if going back to South Beach.

We spent a few days in South Beach following our Bahamas cruise. This villa is perfectly located, within walking distance of practically everything! Imagine both beach and shopping just one block away in opposing directions! Dining options are seemingly limitless. You will need to go back several times to sample all the food options. The rooms are clean and spacious. Very basic, but serving their purpose well. I liked the full size kitchen appliances, dining area, comfortable couch and fairly comfortable bed. Obviously not top of the line, but comfortable and clean. Rooms are really large studios with wooden floors. Ours was to the back of the property, overlooking a little shaded garden space and it was very quiet. Air conditioners are outdated and therefore not the most efficient but this is a small matter since one does not spend much time indoors at South Beach. Very good value for money, especially in terms of the proximity to everything. If you don't need a luxury hotel, this is an excellent option. I will definitely stay here every time I am in South Beach.

Room Tip: The back rooms are very quiet.

We picked this place based on reviews here and found it to be exactly as reviewed. It is a fairly humble accommodation. The kitchen and bathrooms are showing their age but everything is clean and comfortable. The location was excellent, within walking distance of the beach, the art deco district and great dining at Espanola way.

Room Tip: We had two rooms on the ground floor and they were both lovely - exactly like the many photos that h...

Only a block aways from the beach, a garage, Subway and 7-11. Room is spacious - has a comfortable sofa and a fully equipped kitchen. The staff at front-desk is away occasionally to care for the residents, so those who pass by to find a stay may find the reception room empty - just be patient in this case. The room was overall clean, except that we found a cockroach in the kitchen on the first day so I took one star off. Housekeeping even put a bag of clean towels at the door when we chose 'privacy' - so considerate!

This was our first trip to Miami and we had chosen the hotel due to the good reviews here.
A couple of days before we arrived, we even got a very nice email welcoming us soon.
Took a cab from the airport ( $30 ), about 20 min. drive.
The front desk is a little room right and the entrance an we were welcomed very friendly.
Our room was large for 2 and very clean.
Had our own kitchen and a big fridge, which was well needed with the temperatures we had!
Room was cleaned every day.
It was more like a little lodge than a hotel room, but absoloutly enjoyed it.
Fresh towels for the beach were also available every day.
Nice area to sit out in the evening and enjoy a glass of wine.
Only around the corner from the beach and Ocean Drive.
Breakfast, restaurants, bars, shopping all within walking distance.
Will definitely stay here again!!

Villa Paradiso is a very nice, comfortable and neat hotel. The rooms are spacious and have a small kitchen to cook some food and quiet breakfast. The attention of the staff was excellent, always at the service of its guests.
The location is excellent. Close to the beach, downtown, Lyncoln Road and 10 minutes ago from the airport. We feel very comfortable.

Saw this hotel on my first trip to South Beach as I passed by it and thought it looked quaint and pretty with its gated terrace, it looked European. So I booked this hotel on my second trip back. I booked a two double bedroom. The room is basically an apartment with everything you need. It's spacious, charming, and CLEAN with comfortable beds, a dining area, a cute kitchen, large closet, and modern plasma TV. I loved the studio look of the apartment and the fact that the bathroom was far from the bedroom area. Forget about the hotels on Ocean Drive (too rowdy and overpriced). This apartment hotel is affordable and beautiful. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bathroom was a little too small and the shower torch was not strong, but I would definitely book this hotel again. Perfect location on Collins Avenue among the fancy hotels, 1 block from Ocean Drive and the beach. If you want a quiet, affordable, and romantic stay (not to mention clean), this is the hotel to stay at.
