“Villa on Miami Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We lived in the Villa Italia in early May. Overall, we were satisfied. Our apartment (called Villa, the hotel has also the usual rooms) we loved: a lot of space, modern equipment, three bathrooms, a large and comfortable bed in the master bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen (except a coffeemaker). Very helpful staff. Of the shortcomings - the hotel is right on a busy road and still close to the bus stop, respectively, after 6 am traffic began to bother. So, we had to sleep with the windows closed and the air conditioner, even though the weather allowed us to enjoy the cool ocean breeze.

We really enjoyed our second stay at the Villa Italia Hotel. Very helpful and courteous staff! The rooms are small, but clean. You reach by foot CVS (2 minutes), Walgreens (5 minutes), beach (5 minutes), restaurants (2-10 minutes), Ross/Publics (5 minutes by car).
Breakfast, beach chairs, beach towels and other accessories are covered by a small daily fee.
The hotel is not in the middle of the rowdy south beach, but in a quiet area.
Rooms have carpet, what we think is not very easy to keep clean in a beach area. The breakfast includes coffee/tea, muffins, milk, orange juice, beagles and cereals.
We'll come back again!

Room Tip: Room 105 was very quiet.

the only thing that I was not happy was the breakfast, in my opinion a bit' poor than average, but still good. I am glad we stayed at this hotel

A great place to stay. Clean and comfortable. Very close to the beach and all the action on Ocean Drive, but this is a quiet and calm hotel a short walk away on Washington Avenue, which is run by very nice and friendly people.

One of the main reasons we booked this hotel was because of the reviews, and we're very glad we did. The location is very good. Yes, it's a few blocks from the beach and a few more from what feels like the very center of South Beach, but the walk is short and pleasant. We actually liked that it wasn't in the center of all the madness and was very quiet. There is also a bus stop right in front of the hotel for a local bus that only costs $0.25 each way and goes up and down Washington Ave, how convenient! The room was large, as was the bathroom. It was also very clean! The water pressure in the shower could have been better, but that often is the case in hotels. The staff we interacted with the most were Juliana and Michael and they were both GREAT! Overall, we definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking to be in a central location, but not in the crazy mix of South Beach.

Room Tip: We were in room 204, and it was great.

Villa Hotel has an ideal location, close but not to near to the noisy Ocean drive and at the border between SoBe and the fancy SoFi. In front of the hotel you find a bus stop for the South Local which runs along most of Washington Avenue in both directions; for 25 cents you will be able to reach Lincoln Rd in a few minutes, a better alternative to Ocean drive for eating and shopping. Buss 150 to/from the airport stops very close to the hotel, although we took taxi in both directions as we found the 33 dollar flat rate to be cheap.
It is a little hotel, calm and with very helpful young, professional and multilingual staff.
Breakfast is served outdoors and is good enough. Rooms are spacious, clean and with real good A/C. Wi-Fi are relatively fast. Beach chairs and towels are provided free of charge.
I highly recommend this hotel for all medium aged or older couples.
A plus: In the reception you can take, whenever you want, an extra cappuccino, a cake, a banana or fill your bottle with purified water.
