“Great experience for short trip to miami beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We've had a great stay in the villa italia hotel. Absolutely superb staff that will do anything to help you make your stay more pleasant. The location of the hotel is great. The rooms are spatious and complete. The only minus is that they can be a bit noisy. Would definitely return for a next visit to miami beach.

My recent stay at Villa Italia exceeded my expectations. I have visited Miami many times, but this was my first stay at Villa. I was impressed by the friendly service, and the staff went above and beyond to make my stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Breakfast was great for a quick bite on the go. One tip: The hotel is close to public transportation, but the local bus doesn't give change, so make sure you have the 25 cents! Overall, I will definitely be staying here again! Plus, the owner has a cute smile!

I chose the Villa Italia after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and I was not disappointed. The location, the service (Julianna made our experience even more enjoyable - her customer service skills are exceptional). Would come back again....

My family stayed there in June 2013 and it really was great. If we are ever in the area again, we will stay there again without a doubt. The staff is amazing, I really can't say enough. Close to the beach, great service, beautiful clean property, it is wonderful!

We booked the Villa Italia based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. The location was excellent, Washington Avenue being one of the main streets in South Beach yet far enough away from Ocean Drive not to be noisy. The local bus stopped outside in both directions which was a real benefit. The room was obviously newly decorated, the twin beds were comfortable and the facilities excellent. The continental breakfast was adequate. The staff were very friendly and helpful with directions and information on things to do, etc.

booked hotel on reading reviews on tripadvisor. When we arrived our car was taken with their valet parking with no problems and we were guided to our room which was even better than what we expected. The room contained two beds, tv, fridge and on suite which was contained all the necessary toiletries. The cleanliness was immaculate and the location was brilliant to visit town or beach. It was raining when we arrived and staff lent us a umbrella, they also give information on their local bus which circles the area and is cheap to use. We would definitely stay again if we are in the area.

I booked this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews.

In retrospect, there are better choices for the same price, but it wasn't bad.

This is not a boutique hotel, but rather a renovated 1950's motel. I don't mean this point negatively, but as a clarification. The hotel is well-situated away from the hustle and bustle of Ocean drive, but close enough to walk to the key areas. There is a fair amount of noise within the hotel, such as footsteps, nearby conversations and doors slamming. The rooms are spacious and adequate. The beds are top-quality and comfortable. The room had a musty smell when the air conditioning wasn't cranked up; this may be a result of the carpets in the characteristically damp climate.

The wi-fi was excellent, fast and available on the patio. The free breakfast consisted of pastries, bananas, coffee, yogurt and bagels.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper level room, so you don't hear stomping.
