We were booked at the Boulan on Halloween night - but as we arrived on an early flight, our room was not ready yet. The fabulous Alex at the front desk let us check our bags with her and we headed off for lunch and to explore for a while. She called us when our room was ready and when we got back to the hotel, she gave us our room key. She had upgraded us to a suite - street view - absolutely beautiful room! Had 1.5 bathrooms, a washer/dryer unit, a full, beautifully decorated kitchen, living area, bedroom area, and a bathroom that we could have had a party in. This hotel might not be on the beach, but who cares! It is only one block east to the beach - and they have a most fabulous roof-top pool that we took advantage of for a couple of hours that afternoon. The staff is very friendly and the hotel is spotless - and kept in very great condition. Also worth a huge mention is Rick, who manages the valet parking and general "taking care of business" details. Very charming staff - we would definitely go back here again!

Room Tip: I think any room here would be gorgeous - but ask for a penthouse suite and you will NOT be disappoi...

We stayed here the last weekend of October, and we really liked the place. We come to South beach every year as a stopover before we start our vacation in the Caribbean. We normally stay at Lowes or The National, which are a little closer to the restaurants/bars, and this year, The National cancelled our reservations at the last second, so we gave Boulan South Beach a try, and we lucked out.
The staff is very professional and polite. The rooms are huge, quite and comfortable. The hotel itself is one block from the beach, but our room did have a view of the ocean, and had a huge balcony. What I liked best about this place is that it is a ten minute walk to South beach, so you can go down to where all the activities are going on, but when you get back to your room, you can look forward to a quiet night's sleep. Next year we will come back here for our yearly stay in South Beach.

Moved to this hotel because my previous one was dirty and dusty. Stayed at the penthouse 07, which is a 1 bedroom room. Perfect choice. The room is very clean and with no carpet, that helps removing dust. The mattress was very comfortable and the room very spacious. There was a full equipped kitchen and machine wash to do the laundry. This helped me a lot as I was traveling with my 9 months baby and had to cook and do the laundry. The staff was very kind and helpful. The valet parking and internet was a bit expensive, but this is common to all hotels in Miami I stayed before. The hotel is very well located, close to the beach and is just a few yards from the W South Beach. Certainly will be back and recommend your stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: The 1 bedroom is very spacious.

Stayed a the Boulan South Beach for a week in October. It's location is great, easy access to the beach, shopping and Lincoln street around the corner. The staff is very welcoming and friendly throughout. Rooms are spacious and in great shape. Noise from the street can hardly be heard when windows are closed. The only downside was breakfast. Hotel is co-operating with a restaurant around the corner, since they don't have own outlets. While this restaurant has a great breakfast choice, for hotel guests there is only a very limited assortment. You feel a little like "2nd class" while paying 200 - 300 USD per night. Ended up having a la carte breakfast every day (to be paid extra) which indeed was great. If you are looking for spacious accommodation, great location and don't expect the hotel to provide a good food & beverage offering, you should surely stay here. Didn't have the chance to try the pool though. Recommended

We just got back from Florida where we spent a week with 3 year old. After extensive research we decided to stay in Hotel Boulan at Miami Beach. Its one block away from the beach, hotel provides umbrellas and chairs, they have a pool in on the roof with beach beds and comfortable baldachin- type beds ( everything is guarded so kids can't really run away).
The pool does not have a bar- so the ( young) crowd is not that much interested staying there- so the pool area is quiet, clean and pretty private.
Almost every room has a balcony- some of them patio.

The main thing is : a room. The room was about 700 Sf with full kitchen, big dinning tables, washer and dryer ,( that came very handy after every day at the beach!) two TVs ( one in the living room one in the "bedroom" , cable, two bathrooms). Its really an apartment .
Although the entire hotel has a modern design and is nor designed for children, it is children friendly, employees are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is included in near by " Charles St NYC " restaurant ( don;t expect much expect for the tasty fresh pastries , fresh squeeze OJ and Lavazza coffee)

The hotel entrance is across the park, literately next to the Museum, Public Library, and blocks away from Miami Symphony Orchestra.

There is a small deli ( Ocean Deli) right around the corner, and Wallmart is 2 blocks away.

I think this hotel is still a hidden gem as it is relatively new. They are near by Richmond, Reighly, Loews, Ritz Carlton....

Also if you do a booking through hotels.com, orbitz, etc.... you will probably get around $50 off-the room-price per day

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms 403 or 503 ( bright but overlooking the park- not the street)

Having reviewed lots of hotels in South Beach we booked the Boulan for the look of the apartment type rooms, photos on the website and overall value for money, it looked great. Normally, professionally taken website images look great and the real thing isn't so good. But at the Boulan the real thing was equally as good. The rooms, reception areas and rooftop pool were fantastic. I was equally impressed with the staff, very welcoming and a great service ethic, nothing was too much trouble. The location was great, easy to walk to the beach, restaurants & shops. I loved South Beach and didn't want to leave, I want to go back and if I do I'll stay at the Boulan.
