“Stylish, bay-side, happening hotel with great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Located on bay side of SOBE which I really liked but you need to know it's not on the ocean side if you're after the beach. But less noisy and crowded because of that and I really like the bay views. You can get a cab to the beach or there is a "Deco-bike" rental station just across the road where you can rent a bike very cheaply. Great to have a Starbucks on the corner and even better an amazing Wholefoods across the block with prepared foods etc. Foyer is amazing, very stylish. The rooms have a very useful small kitchen with minimal but adequate equipment so you can easily eat-in. Even a little dining table. Also a few restaurants within easy walking distance. Very, very sexy, romantic vibe in the pool area (piped music does get a bit irritating by the end of the day). Busy, full of beautiful people. Not sure if this is unique to this hotel, or its a SOBE thing. Saw the occasional child but very few. This is NOT a family hotel. Nothing for kids and really not suitable. David the pool concierge very gracious and helpful. May have to wait for a lounger. Much of pool area taken up with cabanas, sofas, kissing corners etc. Room is modern, stylish, minimalist. Very small closet; no drawers for clothes. It is not sumptuous. Bed not particularly comfortable but not awful. Loved the sink in the bathroom (a big trough); shower was OK but leaked terribly. Shower had full-length mirror which was very damaged by water. Luckily it steams up quickly!! Lighting in bathroom was poor. Lighting in corridors is like a night-club - so dark you couldn't see to put your key card into your door - had to feel your way!! Gym was well-equipped, clean and looked out over pool and bay. Bay views from rooms are lovely. Ask for higher level because night noise is significant when parties are held outside. Overnight parking was extortionate ($37) as was internet fee ($15) - internet should really be free in a hip, trendy place like this. Ate pool-side and room service and found quality was good. Pricey as with all similar hotels. Overall - not at all a cosy, friendly place - more a stylish, unique, trendy sort of fashion statement, well-located with great views. Perfect for romance.

Room Tip: Must have a bay-view. Balconies are nice to have. Higher level may help with late-night noise from a...

We were recommended this hotel by the travel agent and it was a good recommendation. The hotel itself is great - very unique in it's decor and atmosphere. We had a standard room but it was more than big enough - a nice touch was the mexican tiling in the kitchen. The pool area is great too - very funky with great views out to Miami downtown.

The only slight faults were the lifts - they were a bit busy at times, with some not working, or taking a while to arrive. And the doors leading into the rooms were not the best at keeping noise out of the room. However, it was only noisy a couple of times and did not impact our overall stay at all.

If you are looking for a different hotel than the bog standard chains, go here.

First resort I've stayed in and many more to come. It was truly enchanting and very modern! so be warned! You drive up and see the beautiful amazing chandlers! You walk in and you see a black modern stair case and modern art and white. a LOT of white. Which worked for it! The rooms were awesome, more of a party room. Not really for a relaxing comfort as my husband put it. The beds were okay, but its not really meant to relax in I guess? The pool was spectacular!!! the Bar was awesome too, we both got drinks. And our two drinks cost 40 dollars!! It was just a strawberry dacery and moijto. Which my drink was the best I've ever had, but even for a resort.... that's really spendy!!! Over all the experience was really cool and I'll have it in my memories forever!

This was the highlight of our trip in Florida, which by the way was way above our expectations.
The rooms are large and very original, the whole hotel is actually an experience, quite unusual compared to the other hiltons / mariotts out there. Very refreshing.
The view was grandiose, perfect to watch the sunset (make sure you get a mojito to enjoy that to the fullest). Ask for a higher floor as well.
Gym is perfect, clean with a beautiful view over the bay.
Pool is not really a place to swim, but more a place to have drinks, see and be seen. Gotta be sure to wear a decent bathing suite though ... competition is tough out there. service at the pool is great (towels, umbrella, food, etc)
Finally breakfast was excellent, highly recommend the waffles with whipped cream and berries.
conclusion, if you can afford it, definitely go there.

Regarding the comments about the location, we actually found it better than being on the ocean side, as it was quieter at night, yet you can walk to the beach (15mins to cross) or if you're really lazy, take a cab for probably less than 10$ which you should be able to afford if you're staying at this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor, sea view is worth the ask / extra. Waffles for breakfast !

If you love the perfect sunset with a nice cocktaíl at the pool or bar than I recommend Mondrian South Beach. The Service, the location, the people, the atmosphäre and much more is just outstanding. The new desgin of Wanders gave a complete new style and looks tre chic! I recommend to book a room seaside with balcony just because of the view. The Employies are very nice and helpfull as professional in service. Will come back.

Room Tip: Seaview with balcony - 10 floor

We stayed here for a week, just gone, and felt spoilt by our surroundings and also by the treatment by the staff. The staff make this hotel a cut above the rest in South Beach (as lets face it many hotels in SOBE are similarly luxurious) as they are all amazing at their job, and I am not easy to please! I see David, who worked by the pool, is named a lot in these reviews and I am not surprised, this man deserves a medal! He is attentive and super friendly and puts 100% into his role, an amazing asset to the company.
Enrique in Concierge is very helpful as is Ivan (I think that's his name) who works at the bar. That is to mention a few as they are all seriously great.

The inside of the hotel is impressive and we very much appreciated its theme, the little touches like custom made carpets and tiles all add to the care taken in providing a unique environment. The food, was very tasty. The drinks good. Prices consistent with South Beach prices. A good gym.

I would agree it is worth booking a balcony with a bay view as it is a very pretty view, one that we savoured. I was a bit worried about the location prior to visiting(when looking at Google maps it looks further than it seems) but no problems there it is a 5 dollar cab journey away from most places. You can also walk to, in my view, the best road in Miami, Lincoln road with the mall, etc. Its close proximity to a Starbucks and Wholefoods is another plus.

If you are staying at the Mondrian or in the area, I highly recommend the spa. Especially Roland the masseuse who has Magic hands!! His Swedish massage is amazing and one of the best ever!! The spa is clean and beautiful too.

Located on newly-fashionable West Avenue, Mondrian is a quiet enclave just minutes from the bustling center of South Beach, offering spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, Biscayne Bay and downtown Miami. The visionary style of designer Marcel Wanders is apparent from the moment you pull into the porte-cochere: guests walk through a grand entryway appointed with custom-designed furniture, lighting and accent pieces, evoking Wanders' design homage of "Sleeping Beauty's Castle." Upon entering the soaring lobby, the floor-to-ceiling windows offer stunning views of Biscayne Bay. Immediately the eye is drawn to the masterpiece of the room–an iconic, signature "floating staircase." Black and gold patterned furnishings and oversized brass bell shaped lights add a touch of whimsy and welcome guests to sit and socialize or enjoy the view. ... more   less
