“Great stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel after reading about it on Trip Advisor . Our room was on the top floor, at the front of the building. It was a good size, clean and well furnished. The staff were really helpful and arranged for the room to be ready at 12.00, when we arrived early at 10.00am. We also had a 1 hour late-check-out, but would have appreciated the availability of a courtesy shower, as our flight wasn't until late evening . The food in the bistro restaurant was good at lunchtime, however the breakfast was poor and should be avoided, with hard croissants and inedible scrambled eggs . Instead we caught the bus to Ocean Drive, where we had a full fresh cooked breakfast for $10. The beach is a short walk away and the hotel has some beach chairs (free) and umbrellas ($10). The hotel also provides beach towels. I would recommend this hotel due to the great location on the junction of Collins Avenue and 39th Street, its staff, easy beach access and reasonable pricing. Just don't bother with the breakfast.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 303. It was on the top floor (3rd) at the front of the building and it was fine.

Great location with wonderful people, very reasonably priced. Room was smallest I've experienced outside of NYC, but it was clean and functional and I spent the vast majority of my time in the room asleep.

This place is a nice little gem in the Miami Beach area. Although not very close to the action, this hotel was clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet wasn't the best but served its purpose. This hotel looks to have just been remodeled and had the smell of new paint in the air. Rooms are small as is the bathroom but had new fixtures and the hardwood flooring was a nice touch. Front desk staff couldn't have been more friendly to us. Would I come back to this place? Yes.

First we arrived and our reservation for 2 rooms with double beds was not available. We made reservation several months ago and even had to prepay for them. We check in and the front desk was helpful and got us 4 rooms with single beds. There were two children in the group so we divided and conquered. Just not something you want to deal with at 2AM After traveling all day.

Rooms are clean, quiet, and recently remodeled. The bed was soft and comfortable. So finally got a good nights rest once checked in. Bathroom door wouldn't stay shut unless it was locked so that was frustrating too.

Decor in lobby is very nice and the pool looks nice as well. Hotel is wanting to be trendy but they need to make sure not to cut any corners along the way. The elevator is old and smelled like a fresh coat of paint was just slopped on the walls. First impressions.

All in all, a great place to stay! Close to the beach front! Staff was very accomidating and allowed us to check out late due to late arrival and such.

The Cira 39 is an old school Miami Beach hotel that has been updated while still keeping it's charm. It is across the street from the beach, but not a problem. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. It was nice to enjoy a local handrolled cigar on the front porch in the evening, just people watching.

We enjoyed our 3 nights at Circa 39 in Miami. The beach was across the street and the sand & water was excellent...was able to use the chairs and umbrellas. The boardwalk was amazing. Hotel was clean, bed was comfy and the staff were excellent and very friendly. I would recommend this place.

We enjoyed 3 nights stay in this property to see patriots vs dolphins. . Clean, modern, although small rooms. Excellent bathroom. 1 block from beach. The offer parking for $24 a day, but you can park overnight on street for free and then use meters after 8 am.

We paid $140 night by booking early. It was a non refundable rate. The rack rate of $190 seems high but miami is expensive


Located in the north end of miami beach. (Ie quiet residential area). Super easy to find and access from airports and you can drive or bus to south beach in five minutes if you want to see the scene.

Has a pool and $10 buffet on property. There is a deli and liquor store next door and a great jewish deli for breakfast or lunch a few blocks away on 41 st

Room Tip: I liked rm 224. Used back stairs to access car on 39 st
