“Big rooms, great location, affordable stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

This small hotel is located right in the corner of the South Beach hassle. The beach is two minutes away by foot and the area is bustling with restaurants.

The rooms are really spacious and clean, and the wooden floor is a huge plus.

Only thing that doesn't fit in is the breakfast, which is average as its best. Consider having the breakfast outdoors.

We were travelling with our 8-month old baby and got great service, first an early check-in and when leaving, a late checkout by two hours.

This small family run hotel is one block from the beach in the heart of South Beach - close to everything, but not a party hotel, so for my husband and I, it allowed us to easily take in the sights and sounds of the area, but have peace and quiet when we wanted to. Our room was on the second floor with a kitchenette - it more than met our needs, and was clean and comfortable. A simple breakfast was included along with free Wi-Fi. There was also a small "take one - leave one" book spot in the hallway leading to side street (no guarantee that there will be anything there at any given time but I personally like the vibe that it creates in a place). The owners/staff were able to provide recommendations and directions to the things that we wanted to see/do/eat and can set you up with tours if you want to (the info is available in the lobby). Overall great value for money for a 3 star with the bonus of friendly, helpful staff and owners.

I was there from January 11th until January 13th because I was catching a cruise with a friend. I have to say that this hotel is awesome!!

The Room: They are really clean and pretty big for a 3 stars. In the morning they have a little breakfast available from 7 AM until 11 AM which was awesome!

Location: The location is awesome you are literary 30 seconds away from Ocean Drive ( beach bars and nights clubs.)

I had a great time over there and strongly recommend this hotel to everyone who wants to have a good time in South Beach!! =D

This was my first time in Miami, and I had no idea of the area/city. This hotel is located walking distance to the beach, resto's, grocery store, liquor store, shopping and those that are Canadian that are reading this, a TD Bank!! I have no complaints about the location at all. We got the larger room that had a kingsize bed, sofa bed and kitchenette... the room had more than enough space, great friendly staff and was clean. I would definitely go back there!

Room Tip: a room on the second floor is better than the first.

The Viscay is a good value. It is in a great location; centrally located but far enough away from the late night action that you can get a good night's sleep. It is a very short walk to the beach, Ocean Drive, art deco buildings, etc. The room itself is not super modern in decor and styling, but it was clean. Good wifi.

We booked this hotel as we wanted something in South Beach area without breaking the bank. The place is one block away from Ocean Drive and 5 blocks from Espanola Way. Check on was efficient and the rooms were spacious and clean. Bathroom was a little small but ok. Wifi was fast and complimentary as was a simple breakfast provided. We enjoyed our stay for 2 days before our cruise and would recommend as a value for money stay.

We had initially booked another hotel but based on bad reviews on Trip advisor changed to the viscay . The staff there are exceptionally helpful and the rooms are cleaned thoroughly every day. What is great is that although the hotel is centrally located in south beach at night you are just far enough away from the pumping beats on ocean drive to be able to sleep. The breakfast is simple but fresh and unlimited.

Room Tip: All rooms that we saw were nice and clean
