“Cozy, quiet spot, perfect location, super friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

We had a wonderful time at the Impala. It has a great location, and definitely feels like you're coming home after a long day of sightseeing. The attached restaurant served great food at reasonable prices. The font desk staff were very friendly and welcoming. Great value as well. Will stay there again the next time we go to Miami!

For our first trip to Miami we stayed at the Impala. I was a little worried because of the great price in a premium location, but, surprise! With a Mediterranean charm and very helpful front desk staff we found the Impala charming. We'll definitely stay again. We didn't try the Italian restaurant, but we will next time. Only 1 block from the beach!

The Hotel Impala is a nice change from the typical art deco style in South Beach. It has a very warm and comfortable European look and feel to it which is nice to come back to after a day on the beach or a night out. There was even a Nescafe machine in the room for a delicious morning espresso. The bathroom was very large, everything was spotless and the bed was extremely comfortable. The staff could not have been nicer. The location is great as well. You're right in the middle of SouthBeach and walking distance to everything---beach, restaurants, shops, nightlife, museums, etc.

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!
