After staying in comfortable hotels on our trip in Florida, this apartment seemed lacklustre and extremely minimalist. However it was the location which sold it to us and we adjusted to our surroundings, especially as we would be out most of the day and evening
As I indicated, it was adequate. It was clean and fresh towels are provided daily. Curtains could be spruced up a bit as they were lacking several hooks and this made them sag and look tacky. Dishes in the kitchen were mis-matched and although there is a dishwasher, no washing tablets/powder is provided. Neither is there washing up liquid. For 3 nights stay it didn't seem worth buying either as we could only buy large quantities and we ate out mostly. So rinsing out mugs with water was the order of the day. I hope they were properly cleaned before the next visiting guest.
One of the two shower rooms suffered from water damage and a chunk of the ceiling plaster was in the shower when we arrived. Although we reported it and were told it would be fixed, it still wasn't after three days.
Wouldn't choose to stay here again.
Plus side: Great location close to the beautiful beach and nearby Art Deco district with wonderful buildings lit up at night. A very lively area at night and worth seeing, although the bars and restaurants here were pricey.
Good public transportation into Miami once we found it.
