“enjoyed the stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We enjoyed the stay very much.
The people at the desk were very helpful in organizing NBA tickets, restaurant recommendations ...
The room was really large and very clean.
The breakfast was American continental standard (a little simple, mainly the coffee).
The beach and the Art Deco district were very close and reachable by a short walk.
Only parking was pretty expensive (25$ per night for valet parking).

My wife and I stayed here a few months ago. We enjoyed the stay. The staff was excellent and very accommodating and attentive. The location is great. You're just a few blocks from the beach and a block from shopping and food on Collins. You're in walking distance to all the bars and not far from Nikki Beach (which is so-so in my opinion). The room was clean, which is key. It wasn't overly luxurious or spacious but it's definitely worth the value.

The hotel provides towels (and even a bag) for the beach. They may give you a free drink coupon for an Italian restaurant that's on the corner not far away (Fratelli la Bufala I think). The food at that restaurant is average. It's not something I'd rave about but not bad either. Back to the point though - like the title says decent rooms, great service, and a great location.

We found Villa Italia on South Beach to be of really good value. The sympathetic manager and his collegue even got a long way out to help us solve an issue with our travel documents . Our room in this tiny hotel was spotless, and most comfortable. Masses of Art Deco targets, the beach and many restaurants are within a nice walking distance. There is even a local bus stop right in front of the door.

The only thing I didn´t like was the wi-fi signal inside my room, which was terrible. And free wi-fi was one of the things why I chose this hotel. So, I was disapointed with it.

Juliana, the receptionist, was great, very attentive! But the two men who were working during the morning shifts were too serious and seemed impatient.

Thank you for choosing Villa Italia Hotel. I am glad to hear that you had a wonderful stay besides having a weak WiFi signal in your guest suite.

In addition to Free WiFi we also provided FREE wired internet. All our guest suites are equipped with a desk and chair and wired internet to assist the many business travelers that attend the Miami Beach Convention center.

We hope to see you again in the near future.

Me and my family stayed in Villa Italia. We stayed in a two bedroom villa which was great. The staff is available to help you whenever you need them also. The hotel is located near the beach, stores, supermarket and drugstore. I would recommend VIlla Italia to everyone who is staying in Miami Beach.

Excellent location! Less than 10 mins walk to south beach. Great service. 2 bed villa was perfect for family stay. Although located right on street level there was no noise and the street itself is pleasantly situated. Breakfast is basic but more than adequate and is lovely to have on the patio/courtyard. If you are looking for a 'proper' breakfast go to one of the many many cafes in the area. We would certainly go back to this hotel. Valet parking is also cheaper here and worked really well. There is also a local bus right outside which takes you around the main districts for 25c

My husband and I loved this hotel and its location. 7 mins walk to the beach. Hotel supplied beach towels and an umbrella. Hotel staff were very helpful with suggestions of where to go. Close enough to Ocean Dr. for all the entertainment. Bus stops outside the hotel and only 25cents anywhere local. Room was very clean and modern.
We would stay here again.
