“This hotel is sooo bad in so many ways”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

I don't know where to begin. Let's see, rooms are small and dirty, the bathroom is so small that the toilet paper holder gets right on your hip when you sit. The A/C is so noisy we had to ask for a different room, but it wasn't that different anyway. Beds are awful, old, hard, dirty and uncomfortable. Rooms are noisy, you can hear every single step on the upper floor. A boutique hotel is so supposed to be small and fancy, this is nothing like that. If you see a picture of their rooms, take away the green apple over the pillow and add some disappointment instead.
Location is great, but you should not stay here if you're into clean comfortable hotel rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a less noisy A/C and be sure to close your door, you have to pull them hard or i...

We stayed here for a night in February 2014. Reception was polite. We had a double room on the third floor. The windows were filthy, the floor of the room and the bathroom were in need of a good scrubbing. Good location. Breakfast was minimal and coffee ran out with 30 minutes left for breakfast. Would stay elsewhere another time.

This hotel has become an annual stay for us during The South Florida Food & Wine Festival & we love it! Providing us an Art Deco feel with so much charm and only steps from Lincoln Road, Española Way, Fillmore Theatre & Miami Beach Convention Center at a great cost. Property is quaint with easy accessibility to everything South Beach has to offer. Clean updated rooms with a great courteous bi-lingual staff. Looking forward to next year. Till then, The Garcia family

The A/C didn't work in the room, the beds were sunken in and when we asked where the ice machine was the rude girl at the desk told us the go to CVS.
Did I mention that the room smelled like clorox?
The continental breakfast was the cheapest I have ever seen. One coffee pot and toast with cereal in a dispenser that had to be 20 years old.
Oh, and no parking. The Valet company they use is not on property so it takes them 20-40 minutes to get to the car and back. You also pay $30 bucks for the privilege.
I guess location is really everything in this place.

An older hotel, that has been nicely maintained. Casual and small, it's ideal for a stay at South Beach. Two blocks from the beach, and one block from the Lincoln Rd Mall. Breakfast was very meager, but good coffee!

We have never been to a hotel before, where we - as guests - were asked to fix a toilet, that was blocked. Neither have we before been to a hotel, where we couldn't get the room we had booked two months ahead.

Yes, we booked a room with two beds at Greenview Hotel two months ago, because we wanted at spacious room. But when we arrived, we couldn't get the room, we had booked, until the next day.

Instead we got a room, where the toilet didn't work. This FIRST time - we got some help from the reception to get the toilet to work. But it was a if the room has been out of use for a long time. The TV didn't work until at new set up was made. The Wifi couldn't reach the room, probably because the room was the lying as the farthest out on the aisle.

And at 4.15 the telephone ranged : You have asked to be wakened, the man in the telephone said. No, we had not. But we did wake up !

The next day we got our room with two beds. So now we thought everything was all right.

But no - two days later, when we returned to our room in the afternoon , the toilet in this room was blocked.

The boy in the reception wouldn't help us. He gave my husband a kind of pump and asked him to fix it himself . When I asked him to fix it for us, he refused. I think it was rather humiliating.

After this experience we wrote an e-mail to complain. We used the address, we had seen from the manager on Trip Advisor. But we never got an answer.

The breakfast was lousy and there were never enough. And if you asked for some more, the answer was : they have eaten it all !

The bathroom was very very small and there were dirt at the floor in the room some of the days. But the room we finally got was spacious and nice, and both the TV and the Wifi worked.

And the hotel is very good located close to shops and restaurants.

We spent five nights at the Greenview Hotel over New Years Eve. Hotels were pricy at that time, so we paid about $200 per night.

The room was quite small, but it was clean and beds were comfortable. We skipped the hotel breakfast, as it was just coffee, juice, cereal, toast and croissants. The walls are paper-thin, so we heard our neighbours quite a lot.

The hotel location is great, close to Lincoln Rd and the beach. There is valet parking service for $20 per night, and public parking for $16 per entry.

All in all we had everything we needed, but won't remember anything special about the hotel and probably will not return.
