“Great location, B&B with lots of appeal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

We enjoyed our return stay here - had a king suite, which supplied all that we needed to enjoy our short get-away to warmer weather. The bed and linens were comfortable, the shared balcony overlooking the pool and outdoor dining area was delightful, and the mini-fridge and extras in the room made this a very pleasant place to stay. The breakfasts were tasty, including hot items made to order and changing daily, plus an array of continental self-serve items available as well. The pool area was secluded and shaded, which made for a nice spot to relax when the weather was hot and the beaches were crowded and noisy. We enjoyed the fact that we could walk to so many places: there's a huge park across the street, the beach a few blocks away, Ocean Drive shopping and Lincoln Street pedestrian mall with tons of good restaurants and shops ( lots of outdoor dining) a short distance away. Be sure to check out the Art Deco walking tour for an enthusiastic and entertaining introduction to what makes this part of Miami Beach special. Most importantly, the service was friendly, accommodating and very professional, from the front desk managers to the service staff. SoBeYou offers very good value for its location, but be aware that the rooms and bathrooms may be modest compared to traditional American room sizes. Not a new hotel with fancy amenities, but a smaller, historic accommodation, with character and charm and personality - reminiscent of accommodations one would enjoy in Europe, in smaller and family-run hotels. A great BandB for anyone who enjoys this kind of travel experience, as we do!

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!
