“Good business trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

Great hotel for business. Free wifi, free local calls, free printing, concierge, 25 cents bus to convention center which is a few blocks away.

I recommend this hotel to anyone traveling on business to the convention center

Great little hotel! Perfect location in Miami Beach on Washington Avenue. A quieter location than on Collins Ave or Ocean Drive and only three blocks from the beach. The staff could not be friendlier. The hotel was remodeled recently and it looks like it is new. Big room and big bathroom and shower and comfortable bed.You'll enjoy your stay here. If we come back to Miami Beach, we would definitely stay there again.

This hotel was just perfect! All the members of the staff were very friendly. Our room was good size and very clean. Location is great, the area is fairly quiet but still close to the beach. We could walk or take a local bus which stops right in front of the hotel. Close to restaurants and shopping. Would stay here again!

this is a very well placed quiet 4 stars hotel with perfect service. everybody was nice and helpfull.
it is true that the breakfast is a little short, the hotel would also need to use porcelain plates and metal spoons and knife, but it is nice to have the breakfast included.
beach and good restaurants within a walking distance.
Thank you for everything and best regards to the staff.

We just came back from an outstanding stay at the Villa Italia Hotel. The front desk manager Carl is one of the best in the industry. He is extremely knowledgeble on the south beach area, where to go, what to do and when. This hotel is perfect for couples looking for a quiet place to stay, just outside the Ocean Drive craziness, but without the noise and headaches. Party animals go elsewhere...this hotel is one best kept secret and will hopefully stay that way. Carl and his friendly staff run a first-rate hotel operation - all for an excellent value. Rooms are very clean, well stocked and come with a 42in Samsung TV's and great channel line-up. Hotel is in a great location, safe, just south of the Ocean Drive area, but within easy walking distance of everything, including the Miami Inlet/Harbor area, where you can go watch the cruise ships head out on the weekends.

For couples, must do's are Happy Hour or dinner at Smith & Wollensky's, Joe's Stonecrab (A must do) and a walk down to Monty's for Hap Hour, overlooking the Miami Yachtclub. We saw some of the largest yacht's in the world, including the Aviva (#80 on the top 100 largest yacht's!).

They serve a very nice lite breakfast every morning. outdoor tables. All rooms and front gate have easy-swipe key cards for easy entrance. We stayed in the hotel, room was a bit smaller than I expected, but no biggie at all. I am sure the house is even better!

Great place to stay for quiet couples looking to enjoy SoBe!

Room Tip: Our room was on the West side of the hotel and was very quiet, although I think all of the rooms ap...
