“A boutique hotel??”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2011

The Mimosa Hotel advertises itself as a 'boutique' hotel and I suppose what they mean is that the hotel is small, has sleek modern furniture and a jacuzzi bath in the bedroom! Some people might think this is all very artsy and cute but staying there presents some real problems. I recently spent five nights there while searching for a short term rental apartment in Miami beach. First off, as another reviewer already noted, the walls are paper thin and one hears everything happening in the next room. This can be a real nuisance especially when your neighbors come in late at night and have an argument! There is not a comfortable chair to sit on in the room. The one chair that faces the very tiny desk like structure -and is barely big enough for a laptop computer -has no back support. The bed, while fairly comfortable was difficult to get in and out of because it was just a mattress placed on a wooden platform. This is one main reason why I would not recommend this hotel for older visitors. The breakfast is cheap at $5.50 but that's because it hardly contains any food... just canned juice, coffee, toast and sugary cold cereal. The hotel lacks facilities necessary if one is there for a business or business related reason. They do give messages but there is no phone available at the pool deck nor in the small lobby except for the one behind the desk. The staff is not particularly friendly or unfriendly... they do their jobs but one doesn't get a welcoming feeling from any of them that I encountered.

As well, this hotel is not cheap. While its prices vary depending on the usual factors, I still paid more than $150 per night plus taxes and felt it was not good value for what I wanted and needed. The only really good thing about it is its location. The beach is immediately behind its pool deck and takes only moments to get to and there is a bus right outside its door. I suppose this type of hotel is allright for younger travelers who might think this place is "cool" but not for the rest of us!

Room Tip: There are only three floors and the elevator is slow so maybe it would be better to stay on the firs...

Breakfast is very basic cereals & little else! Small crowded area for all guests on hard outdoor aluminum furniture. Disgusting value!

The staff at Mimosa Hotel is horrible. They are very unfriendly, never smile, and are not helpful at all. The room is loud because you can hear traffic outside and people in the hallway and outside the building. The bath towels are old and small and there were never enough towels in the room, had to call them daily to get extra ones. The beds are clean at least. I fell and hurt myself on the wet tile floor and the man at the front desk said nothing after I told him. Very rude and I would not choose to stay here again.

Staff is great, parking is right across the street, you need to pay for it though.
Rooms are spotless, service is great. They speak both English and Spanish.
The pool is a fare size and right after it , it is a gate and the beach.
It is 10 minutes away from the Miami Beach convention center.

The location REALLY close to the beach is perfect.
But the cleaning isn't that good. I don't think they ever cleaned under the bed. We found an earplug!!!
Really small bed.

The only thing this hotel has to offer is the beach behind it, but so do most of the other hotels on Miami Beach. Otherwise I hav little to recommend this hotel. The walls are paper thin making it noisy, the rooms are relatively small and the staff were almost non communicative. The first room had a leaking bathroom, but to be fair the second was better with a spa bath in the room. The breakfast was very poor, just some bread on a plastic plate and a bored lady waiting to finish up. Just a few tables (not enough) in a small corner back of the hotel. They havve no proper restaurant. The hotel has almost no other ammenities. The pool was even closed on one very hot day. The parking cost $18 a day, but there is a public carpark next door which is free from 18.00 to 8.00. Choose another hotel if you can.

This was my very first trip to Miami and this hotel ruined the experience. Checking in wasn't a very good experience as the two dudes at the front desk were unfriendly, and then informed us of the parking charge of $15/day. They didn't even offer to help carry our bags. The room was very clean but very small, had a old, but functional TV with a really ghetto, beat up remote. We had a side view of the ocean, but really, a full on view of the unruly lot next to the place. Bathroom was ok, small, but had a jet-bath tub. Kitchenette was a nice feature, as it had a sink, microwave, fridge, and coffee maker, and a small dining table.

Now, this hotel was booked through another website; the operator claimed it was close to South Beach. Well, it's not. It's actually more North Beach, so don't expect to see the Miami you do in travel magazines. It's more like a neighbor hood with mom and pop stores, Publix, gym, Blockbuster Video, not the upscale restaurants, clubs, and shops you would expect.

We tried to call downstairs to reserve a taxi cab to go out to the clubs in Miami. The front desk person was so disgruntled about calling a taxi and stating that if we weren't down there in 5 minutes, the taxi cab would leave us. So we go rushing downstairs only to wait another 15 minutes for the cab. FYI, it's about $20 cab ride one way to South Beach from this hotel.

Check out was also a very unfriendly process and also come to find out there was a "bed tax". Great. This hotel is very beautiful with marble floors, private ocean, and somewhat cute rooms, but the staff, service, and location make this hotel horrible. Sure, it's listed around $155/night, but with the hidden fees/parking/taxi cab fares to South Beach, it's about $235/night. Go ahead and spend the extra money for a nice hotel room IN South Beach.

There are pretty good restaurants around the area within walking distance with reasonable prices. There's also a cute little spa to get pedicures for cheap.
