“Very good basic room over-looking the pool!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

I got this room via Priceline.com and seemed to get a VERY reasonable rate for the area. The hotel seemed very clean generally. The elevator seems to be a problem for some (small and old), but I was on the second floor (recommended) and the stair case leads you right up!

The staff at the hotel were borderline amazing. The lead bellhop was super awesome.

The room lacked a few things! It didn't have a mini-fridge, microwave or coffee maker. I usually expect those things to be in my room, but it's not the end of the world, if not.

All in all, I'd totally stay there again for the price we paid!

The restaurant. FIX. Appropriately named. The menu items, prices and descriptions changed with every menu I saw (room, front desk, front stairs AND tables). They agreed to honor the pricing that made me walk in the door. I ended up eating here twice, once for dinner (very good food and service) and then for a "menu-mix-up-brunch". The "menu-mix-up-brunch" wasn't the best as I don't like to haggle about pricing that has been so clearly stated on my menu. If I order a $9 Bloody Mary, I expect it to be $9, not $11. Thanks. Same deal with the breakfast!

Room Tip: Over looking the pool, second floor.

This hotel is in a great location, the rooms are very basic, but comfy (although my room had no view at all), the hotel has a pool (although miniscule), the service was good, and the restaurant was awesome (try the French toast). If you get a discount (we paid $200 for our room), then it's a great option. It's a basic place, but pleasant and convenient.

Had an opportunity to spend 3 nights at the hotel recently and was quite pleased with the overall experience. We arrived in early afternoon and they front desk person was determined to upgrade us but was not able to make it work-- not a problem as long as a room was ready and we could settle in. The rooms are small so don't plan on spending a lot of time there-- but that's not why you go to South Beach. What the room lacks in space it makes up for in comfort and decor-- simple, clean, white, and quiet. The bathroom was functional and also on the small side but the toiletries and amenities were a good quality. Staff was pleasant and helpful; they were attentive to requests and made some good recommendations while we were there. The only complaint I would have is about the valet parking arrangement. Valet seems to be a franchised operation with a few of the smaller hotels and they are reliably, undeniably, very slow... sometimes as long as 30 minutes or more. If this were a large hotel, I would understand but for hotel with about 75 rooms I think they could do better. The restaurant FIX is really very good and should have been packed the night we ate there-- but it wasn't. You really have to go into the hotel to see the place so it doesn't benefit from walk-bys like so many of the other places serving food of a far lesser quality. We ate at some of the best places in SB and by far this one was the best for quality, freshness, originality, and service. The bartender was terrific and the entire staff of FIX made sure we had a great experience. This is a great location and I expect the place to book fast once it catches on in the area. It should.

Room Tip: If you can get a bigger room than the standard, do it. While the regular rooms are fine, you might b...

I do not trust this shady guy to make me a drink. Would rather wait for other great bartenders, Fabian was the best. Mohawk was Cold--in a rush to go-- and made me want to leave the bar. said "do you want anything else, before you CLOSE OUT?" and handed everyone their checks. Really unwelcoming. Made up drink charges that weren't on the menu--13.75 for a glass of basic wine? Worst bartender in Miami.

Room Tip: ask for a pool view

The room was not ready when we arrived. The "cook " does not know how to fix a couple of fried eggs. Someone at the front desk stole a package that arrived to our attention. At night the place was noisy . Nobody gave me an explanation when I asked for the lost package and I am still waiting for an answer.......

Even tough we payed extra money for a larger bed the suite looked and felt like a tiny hotel room. I would not stayed at this hotel never again, even if they invite me .

I almost forgot, you also have to pay an extra 20 dollars a day for a parking place for your car.

The location is great, one block from beach, right on Collins Ave for shopping, many restaurants nearby within walking distance. The room on the other hand, was tiny. Small closet with built in drawers was nice. No room to even walk around the bed. Anyone bigger than a child would have problems sitting at the desk, because the bed was in the way. There was a small "wading" pool, 3 ft deep. Our phone was blinking (no message) and our clock was set to the incorrect time. We asked repeatedly for assistance, none came. The clock must be set with an iphone, we did not have one. Our air conditioning clanked as long as it ran. The room was clean! All in all, the staff was friendly. Jorge, at the bar, was excellent, not only providing great service but restaurant advice also. The restaurant at the hotel was limited and a bit pricey. Have not stayed anywhere else on Sobe, so cannot compare. Several members of our business trip were unhappy, and they have stayed elsewhere.

We stayed here last week for Art Basel. It was terrible! The hotel was recently "renovated". We were in the South building which was supposed to be "nicer and quieter". Instead the whole building smelled like mildew and the hallway carpet was dirty and old. Our room had shoddy construction, cheap new furniture, a broken phone and an air conditioner so loud that you had to shout over it. We asked to be moved to the other building which didn't smell like mildew. We were told to talk to the manager, Ernesto. During our 4 day stay, we left him three messages and two notes but never saw or heard from him. Miami was sold out so we were stuck there.

The rest of the staff is as nice as they can be -- even though they get no support from management. The poor bartender was stuck on the first night of Art Basel with a bar that was out of almost everything. And it wasn't because they sold out. It was because management didn't restock the bar.
