“An oasis in a busy city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We were so lucky to find this charming boutique hotel in such an excellent location. The room was very luxurious, with a very comfortable bed and a bathroom with a shower to die for! Best of all, the staff was friendly, courteous and very helpful. I had a dental problem, and Maggie, who was working on the desk went out of her way to find a dentist for me. We would definitely stay here again and have recommended it to friends.

Room Tip: Towards the back would be quieter.

We stayed here before sailing out of the port of Miami for a cruise. Very quaint and stylish little hotel right in the middle of all the South Beach attractions. Easy to walk to the beautiful beach, shops and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again.

The rooms and hotel were very clean - everything was spotless. Most of the furnishings and decorations look brand new and the hotel decor was fantastic. The staff was friendly and very helpful with all of our questions. The mattress and bedding were extremely comfortable. Lots of hot water and I would agree with a previous review that it is hard to get the temp set right on the shower, very sensitive. Lots of channels on the TV, which is great. Would be nice to have a channel guide in the room (although this is a realy minor comment)

Staying on the first floor, it was a little noisy at night when some people would return late or leave early, I would recommend asking for a different floor.

Would recommend to friends and relatives if in the area to stay here.

Amazing bedding, kind service, free wifi, free beach towels, free breakfast, nespresso machine in each room! Couldn't ask for more at a reasonable price. The rooms are immaculately clean. Had a problem with our bathroom and it we fixed immediately!

The Impala Hotel puts you steps away from the South Beach action without having to be overrun by it. It is clean, comfortable and well appointed. Maggie (front desk) and all the staff are welcoming, helpful and charming. I would definitely stay here again.

My boyfriend and I stayed here on our way back from Key West. We didn't make plans to stay here but it wound up being just the right place. When arriving in Miami, I quickly looked to TripAdvisor for a place to stay and this place popped up and seemed to have good reviews. We walked in off the street and were warmly welcomed by the front desk staff. This place doesn't look like much from the road but once you walk in you will be wowed. It is absolutely beautiful, the pics I took does not due it justice. The price was very reasonable compared to other places in the area. It is not directly on the beach but it is just one street over from it. So if you don't mind not having a beachfront view, this place is perfect. We stayed in there basic king bedroom but there wasn't anything basic about it. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. It came equipped with a fridge, 2 closets and a Nespresso machine. The bathroom had only a shower but it was big enough to fit more than one person in it. The bed was very comfortable and since it is a small boutique hotel, it was very quite. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel that serves breakfast and dinner. We did not eat there but it smelled wonderful. I would have loved to stay longer but we were only there for the night. I would deffinatly recomend this for a great couple getaway.
