“A Very Pleasant Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

If the rooms, especially the bathrooms, had been larger I would have rated this small inn as excellent. Despite that, it's a very good base for a South Beach vacation. The breakfast was substantial and the staff is very friendly and helpful. It's an easy walk to the beach and restaurants and the pedestrian mall and you're away from the madness of Ocean Drive. Evening and overnight parking requires the purchase of a day permit at $20 or a short walk west to Alton to park in a garage across from Whole Foods, at $15 for 24 hours. There's a lot of tropical vegetation around the pool and lounge area, which are compact but very pleasant.
We were in 5 for two nights and 7 on our return from Key West, for 1 night. 5 is a little larger but 7 has the prospect of more light, as it's on the end of a row of rooms.

Sweet little place with tastefully furnished rooms, yes on the small side if one has luggage, but manageble, the tropical vegetation around the pool in front of the room is lovely and it is peaceful in the morning. We had from 9.00 hrs onwards some construction noise...but guess you can not change that.
Staff very nice and breakfast lovely for american standards. Good tea selection ! Outside by the pool!
We would come again!
Parking is extra! 15 to 20 $ a night. Wholefood store very close! Nice residential area! Short drive from the airport! close to art deco district.

Room Tip: Zimmer 5 war sehr schoen! Room 5 was very nice, upper floor, not for handicapped. No lift.

We went in Miami in August 2012, with our 3 years old daughter. The SoBe B&B wes great. Our room, deluxe family room 10, was very beautiful, spacious, clean, with everything you need. It is in a great location, in a very quiet neighborhood, but convenient to Ocean Drive and the beach as well as shopping on Lincoln and Collins Ave. We would surely come back again if we come back to Miami Beach!

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at SOBE these past two days while attending the Miami Boat Show.
To our delight we were upgraded o the Presidential Suite....and it was beautiful. The room is very spacious, well appointed, immaculately clean complete with a huge 55 inch Sony LED TV.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

SOBE is in a very quiet neighborhood and is within walking distance to Washington and Collins Ave. On a few occasions we did take a taxi and was never more than $6.00 away from anywhere in South Beach.

The area appeared to be very safe and never felt uneasy walking the area.

Breakfast on both mornings was very good.

We'll be back!

Room Tip: We did drive in. Be sure to get the $20 a day parking pass from SOBE. You can park right in front...

We totally enjoyed our overnight at this cute spot. Breakfast was delicious and vegan which I appreciated very much. The owner was very friendly and helpful for every need. We would surely come back again if we come back to Miami Beach. Easy to walk everywhere.

The B&B was everything described and still exceeded our expectations! The staff was very friendly accommodating.The rooms were very clean and homey. The pool area was also a very pleasant surprise - it's quiet and secluded from the business of South Beach - heated with jets and lit up with bright colors at night. Breakfast was excellent (breakfast burrito with fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, croissants, ect.) and came out very quickly. Location of the B&B was perfect - convenient to Ocean Drive and the beach as well as shopping on Lincoln and Collins Ave. (all ~4 blocks away). Would stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway in the heart of town!

I stayed at Sobe You 2 years ago and loved it. Just back for another visit to Miami, and even thought it was a bit far from where my friends live in S. Miami, I chose it because of the little bit of Paradise that exists once you enter the garden gate. Pool and gardens are a fair size for this former private residence. Rooms are simple but spotless, and the fridge is very helpful for any leftovers or picnic supplies you may want to keep cool. (Whole Foods and the Epicure market are nearby, ready to let you choose your favorite treats...I got a perfectly cooked whole duck breast at the Epicure, which lasted for 2 deliciious meals!!!)

The staff is extremely helpful, and I was happy to see most of the same people who were there 2 years agol Breakfasts were very nice and they were happy to accomodate my preferences for veggies in the omlette, etc.

Many of the guests were from Europe, and although I knew the sites in Miami after living there for nearly 20 years, the staff was guiding people to the best sites not only on the beach, but in the entire area.

Parking has become more of an issue, and permits are now available for $20/day. That really isn't too bad considering it covers unlimited in and out street parking on some of the most popular streets in the area all night.

I obviously returned to Sobe You, and would do so again. It's a little hidden treasure.
