“Good Location. Incredible view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Good Location, close to bar and restaurants. Incredible view over the bay!

The pool overlooking the Bay has the best services! The location is perfect, close to Lincoln Road, with its charming shops, and the perfect distance from the beach and Ocean Drive.
Modern hotel, very comfortable and excited! The rooms are large and modern decor. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms have a mini kitchen which makes it much easier. The pool is badaladissima with sound, beautiful people.

My husband and I only stayed at the Mondrian for a night, but it was a great visit! I think Mondrian hotels have some of the most comfortable beds and the Mondrian South Beach didn't disappoint! Our room was much more spacious than I anticipated - we had a mini oven, mini fridge, and even a table with four chairs! We weren't there long enough to make use of this, but for an extended stay this would have been nice.

I love that Mondrian provides Malin + Goetz bathroom amenities - they're some of the best out there! The double headed shower was nice and the water pressure perfect.

We didn't have a view of the pool, but we could still see the ocean from our room so I had no complaints about that. If you go down to the actual pool area (and why wouldn't you?! this is Miami after all), it is gorgeous. A seriously fantastic view and fantastic drinks to boot.

The only thing I didn't love was the weird art on the wall. It was like an anime doll with huge creepy eyes that stared at you when you were in bed. It's not what I would have chosen, but to only have one small complaint is pretty good.

Thank you. Yes, our rooms are nicely equipped for an extended stay as they are all equipped with kitchens and are quite spacious. We're glad you enjoyed our amenities as well. We hope you will join us again when you can stay longer and experience the rest of Mondrian.

There is nothing to complain about at the mondrian.....great location, lovely spacious clean rooms and David the pool concierge who is amazing and really knows good service. The only thing to complain about is the service charge on everything even if you order your drinks at the bar....a little excessive! If you staying here try umami burger, cara Mia and olivers bistro all amazing reasonable local restaurants.

The front desk service is second to none and the rooms are beautiful - especially if you have a bay/pool view. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because the food although very tasty has a limited range and gets boring when you stay for a week or so. Also the bathrooms are more style over substance than necessary. Nevertheless would highly recommend.

This hotel is perfect for people that want a little quieter surroundings but, close to everything. It is located on the bay side of the island away from the hustle and bustle yet only a mile or so from all the action. The property itself is very elegant. The rooms are quite spacious (we had a studio). You have a well furnished kitchenette with microwave, 2 burner cook-top, and small refrigerator. The bathrooms are a real treat. A chandelier is your overhead shower. The beds are comfortable. Just down the block there is a Starbucks, Whole Foods, and several restaurants. The parking at the hotel is very expensive ($37 per day) but, worth it to us because we got a very good deal on our rooms. It is very difficult to identify the hotel property since, there is no sign outside and the numbers of the address are somewhat covered by ivy. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The upper floors, as usual, have the best views. We had a city view but, being on the 9th floor, we...

Ok, so we aren't the REAL housewives and we all work like dogs, but we are well traveled and looove the good life. And we are picky. I first came to the Mondrian for business, only stayed a night, and swore I would come back as soon as I could for multiple days. That was all because of David Arth who works at the pool. Because of David, I grabbed two of my girlfriends and we were pampered princes for 4 days. I mean, ridiculous. And if you're a guy, you should only be treated half as well as David treats everyone! But then there's the Mojitos, and the food....and because David is not a waiter he didn't serve us but the service and food were spectacular. Clean, clean, clean rooms, incredible service, sunsets extraordinaire (I wonder if David ordered that for us also?) it is like coming home...if you live in luxury and have a staff waiting on you hand and foot in your house. And a David Arth to make sure you have everything you need. Really. I'm coming back, thank-you David!!!!!

Room Tip: Bay view!!

PRO's
PRO's

I planned this vacation back in January, way before the NBA final championship was scheduled and, I coincidentally ended up arriving the day of the final game so the place was packed and the atmosphere was electric.

The suite was spacious and had an open floor plan that was welcoming. The staff made sure to care for and anticipate anything we may need.

The valet service was extremely convenient. The staff was courteous and kept up with the massive volume of incoming and outgoing guests. All doors were opened whenever entering or exiting the lobby.

We had breakfast service included in our package. The hours were flexible -- 0700 to 1100 -- so if you wanted to sleep in a little, you could still catch breakfast. There wasn't a great deal of variety, but what they did have was of good quality.

The outdoor pool was clean and, during the evening hours, it was heated. The pool overlooks the view of the Biscayne Bay and the skyline of the city. There's a pool bar and several bungalow's for a more private, small group, personal experience.

CON's

The gym is extremely small, half of the equipment doesn't even work, and the variety of equipment is terrible. I don't expect a HUGE workout room, but I expect the gym to be as functional as any of the other spaces in the hotel -- it was not.

There was a large selection of snacks in the mini-bar. They were extremely overpriced. There are several convenience and liquor store that are within walking distance. So, if you're into drinking while you're there (which I wasn't), save yourself some money and avoid drinking from their mini-bar like you'd avoid the plague.

Lastly, the parking in South Beach is terrible no matter where you go. The valet service is convenient however, there is a parking garage about 2 blocks away that is only 15 bucks a day as opposed to paying 37 dollars per 24 hours using their valet service. That is, of course, unless you just want to be lazy and have plenty of money to blow.

OVERALL

We had a great experience staying there. The location is perfect if you want an upscale, quiet, classy vacation. We booked this through the military's contracted government travel because I'm in the Army, so we got a really good rate. But I will say this -- I've stayed in 5 star accommodations within and outside of the United States and I've gotten more bang for my buck. But what can I say, this is South Beach.

Thank you for your recommendation and your recent visit. We're happy you enjoyed your stay, thanks in part to excellent service and superb room accommodations. We hope these bring you back to Mondrian in the future. Alas, parking is very expensive on South Beach as are all hotel minibars. We wish to assure you that our pricing is in line with other hotels in the area.

Thank you again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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
