“Excellent hotel in art deco district”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

Excellent location in the art deco district and 1 block from the beach. Modern style rooms, very spacy with kitchen facilities. The bed was also modern, i.e. very low and a bit on the soft side, and queen size. The hotel is difficult to find and the reception even more so, but it´s worth the trouble!

Your comments are well-received, Teeliner. We understand that finding our hotel and reception desk is a bit difficult. Therefore, we take the necessary steps to inform our guests by emailing them beforehand with this information. It is good to know that this did not deter you from having an outstanding experience otherwise.

100m from Miami South Beach the place is very quiet, clean, spacious and modern. The apartment has everything you need for a week-end at the beach. The place doesn't offer the breakfast but you better go to the beach for special miami breakfast. This place is highly recommended.

Our comparative advantage, Julienchito, is the flexibility of offering the amenities of an apartment and proximity to the beach. This allows our guests—local, national, and international—to partake in a one-of-a-kind experience that is tailored to provide comfort, cleanliness, efficiency, and autonomy.

We stayed here for 3 nights last september. We booked an appartment. The room was very clean and modern. The towels are changed each day by the staff. Despite being an appartment, your bed is made every day and the room is cleaned. Which was great. Beach towels are also present.

There is a kitchen in the room which includes a refrigerator, microwave-oven and an electric cooking plate. I did miss the normal oven and some kitchen utensils. Good bed, nice bathroom and shower and a good price.

Staff was also very friendly and helpful.

The guest experience is tailored to be both comfortable and impeccable: we offer the design and amenities of an apartment and complement this with the services and housekeeping of a hotel. This allows our guests to enjoy Miami and the Beaches with the comforts of home and without the additional chores.

The Jetset Franklin apartments have an excellent location, close to the beach. The rooms are modern, very clean. It has a feeling of Scandinavian simplicity and elegancy. The staff is very very helpful and friendly. We travelled with the family, and all of us were impressed. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in SoBe.

The Jetset Franklin was highly rated by Bookings.com and is located in the general area of South Beach that I like, so we decided to give it a try.

Check-in was a liitle odd as you have to walk around to the south side of the building. Other than a small entry and elevator, the first floor and front door are occupied by a high-end and hip clothing store. The staff was really great and made us feel quite welcome. Rather than a check-in desk, you go to a second floor office to check in. No big deal...just different.

The room was rather large but set up and furnished sparsely and very contempory. Lots of hard and/or firm surfaces. You cannot watch TV from you bed in our room as there was a separation screen between the bed and the rest of the room. The kitchen was well equipped with a fridge, cooktop, microwave, toaster and coffee pot. The bathroom in our room (#308) was tiny. the room was verty clean.

You have to park in a 7th street public garage that is 2 blocks away. $20 for 24 hours. Not horrible, but not convenient either.

While our German friends really liked the hotel (the design and furnishing may appeal more to European tastes), we did not. Our primary issues was noise. We could and did hear street noise from shouting to car horns to fighting in the street until about 7am. It was if we had the windows open we could hear it so loudly. You must expect a party on a Friday night in South Beach, but the noise level and consistency of it made our stay sleepless.

As much as we wanted to like the Jetset Franklin, it is not for us.

Room Tip: Make sure to book an odd numbered room on the south side of the hotel. This is more away from the s...

We provide our guests with excellent amenities, services, and accommodations, and, as a general rule, we strive to provide a quiet ambiance within the confines of our building. As you can well imagine, however, being in the heart of South Beach usually comes with the unfortunate residual noise from the streets that is beyond our control.
