“Very Enjoyable Stay. Great Service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

This is more of a 4.5 star review. We had 5 friends staying in a 1 bedroom apartment at Hotel 18 and it fit us all very comfortably. There was a queen size bed, a pullout couch, and a rollaway bed, along with plenty of room to sleep on the floor if you needed. The rooms were very clean, and had a fridge and full kitchen for long stays if you needed to cook anything. The only minor quip was the bathrooms were a little smallService was great, Wilfredo was helpful with everything you needed.

Amazing location, heart of South Beach, easily accessible to Lincoln Road, Collins, Ocean Drive, the beach, and Washington Avenue.

Decor is great, rooms were clean and had everything we needed and the kitchenette was a great feature, microwaves in hotel rooms should be a necessity everywhere!

Service was great too, the check-in receptionist was very friendly and helpful. We disembarked very early from our cruise ship (around 10am) and headed straight to the hotel and were granted our request of early check in! We had the room a mere hour later, 4 hours earlier than the 3pm official check in time. Very accomodating.

All in all, a solid bet for South Beach on a budget without compromising anything (except a pool), and would definitely stay here again and recommend to all

We stayed in a one bedroom flat which had a lounge with sleeper couch so four of us stayed here. For the price and location it was well worth it. The flat itself was decorated very nicely and the kitchen was very clean and all the utensils were practically new. The sleeper couch was comfortable and the bed in the bedroom annoying kept moving because of the tiles but it was comfortable. Plenty of closet space. Bathroom was a bit small but always good to have a hot shower.
Since we had all the facilities we made breakfast each day and the cleaning service was kind enought to put the dishes away.
Hotel is just of Collins street and and then another road to the beach and a short walk to ocean drive and south beach. On the other side two street was Washington avenue which was also excellent. If you have a car be prepared to drive around looking for parking. We were lucky to find a spot on ocean drive on a Saturday night.

This hotel is good if you want to spend more time in Miami as it does feel like home away from home.

I guess you get what you pay for, and this hotel was pretty cheap. Good location. Quiet. Clean, but small rooms. Kitchenette.

Great for sleeping. If you are looking for wild pool parties, you should look elsewhere.

Hotel18 is very well located -- a 2-block walk to the beach and 2 blocks from Lincoln Road's shops and restaurants. The hotel itself is quiet and peaceful with a nice courtyard. Our room had a fridge, a freezer, a toaster and a stove which was perfect for us! We saved money by eating breakfast in our room.

The staff were kind and helpful! Free Wifi in the room!

Some construction was going on during our stay which was unfortunate since the noise woke us up. Also the AC is a bit loud so bring earplugs!The bed was very comfortable!

The cleaning could have been better but overall we were happy with our stay at the hotel. We would definitely stay again!

It's a great place to stay. 3 blocks from a beautiful beach! Good location, clean, super well-equipped, modern and with very kind and professional staff who care about the guests. It has parking (paid as everywhere). They kept a suitcase till we came back from NY and when we arrived there was a card and delicious complimentary cookies waiting fro us. That's customer service!
Congrats to this hotel and thanks to Wilfredo!

Room Tip: I stayed in 2 different rooms and all of them are nice and new.
