“Great loction in South Beach, FL”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Friendly staff and great location in the heart of South Beach.
The swimming pool is great and the bar/restaurante area are perfect to chill out and relaxing. This is a boutique hotel with a buffet breakfast each morning from 7.30-10.30.
THis hotel is perfect to bring your femaly or in business is very near by of the South Beach Convention Center.

Room Tip: Be away of the swimming pool if you like to sleep late

First of all I'd like to thank all the staff who has been awesome : each one of them offered us their smile and help all day long, from the early morning until late night.
Special thanks to Endri and Andres, and "BRAVO" for the amazing cocktails taken at the bar of Pestana hotel !!!!

The location of the hotel :
Central I would say. We did not have a car, we walked as every spots were very close from our hotel :-)
About, 5 minutes from Collins Avenue , 10 minutes far from Lincoln road, 20 from Ocean Drive.

The rooms:
We asked for twin beds and we were very happy while discovering the room that the 2 beds were large (140 cm each bed) and very comfortable.
There is only 1 wardrobe with hangers, but also a chest of drawers, and a few shelves close the bathroom.
There is also a TV that we never switched on :-)
it is quite late night, but you can easily hear the noise form the corridor outside the room.
If you have educated neighbours then it will be always quiet ....

The swimming Pool is small but clean.

The bar is very nice and it is just in front of the swimming pool : nice view then
It is also the place where we had our breakfast.

The breakfast is a buffet and very healthy. You can have also non-healthy food : you have the choice as there are many goods to please everyone

Well Pestana South beach hotel is now my favourite place to stay when I go to Miami.

This was a great choice of hotel for myself and a friend. Rooms were a little small but clean & modern and not too expensive. Great pool, and with in walking distance to a lot of the action. They also had a great happy hour in a land of very over priced drinks and food. It was a great change of pace. I also must point out that the two bartenders Endri & Andre were awesome! They were so much fun to talk to, and made great drinks!!

The hotel is very close to main shopping streets and to the beach.
There is only elevator in the main building where the reception is located, so try to have your room their.
Their is also a small swimming pool.
Hotel parking cost approx. 30$ per day and 2 blocks far. There is another public parking a bit cheaper, closer and located on the same street.

The combination of the top location, great taste of the spaces in a renewed art déco style, and amazing staff (out of the blue!) makes this boutique hotel ideal for a holiday. Felt home there and will come back really soon!

Picked this hotel mainly for its location - we didn't want to stay on Ocean Drive as we wanted a quieter part of Miami and this hotel didn't disappoint.

It was clean with very modern furnishings (it's not a hotel for people looking for cosy) and had a fab pool, which we spent a lot of time lounging by.

Breakfast wasn't included, not sure if it's offered. Parking is at a garage just a few minutes walk from the hotel and the fee was pretty reasonable for Miami.

Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Pestana and would recommend as a great hotel to stay in Miami.

Stayed September 2013, traveled as a couple
