“I really like this hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

I came in a day early and they were great. All through the reservation process. Especially Luis. Came in to the lobby, small, nice vibe. Room was very nice, large, clean (Room 202) corner room on Collins and the pool. Windows on two sides. The staff was great (special shout out to Patrick for helping me out of a difficult situation). My wifi was great, but every time I closed my computer the computer thought that I was staying across the street at the Courtyard Suites. Once I reconnect everything was great.

Also: Saturday night had dinner sitting on the porch. OK, not gourmet, but tasty and Alfredo the waiter was great.

A block from the beach, so don't expect a view of the water(except the view)

The hotel has a lovely vibe. I would absolutely stay here again.

Room Tip: Stay on the 2nd or third floor. Really like my room (202).

We stayed two weeks in Circa 39 february 2015. The room was very clean. The personnel very friendly and helpful. The only thing which was not good was the breakfast. For people who stay 1 or 2 nights it is ok. We stayed two weeks and we had every day the same: eggs and beacon and potatoes. There is not enough variation for people staying for a long period. Sometimes things were missing i.e. there was no tea the last day of our stay. Sometimes there was tea but no hot water. We don't advise the breakfast it's better tot take it elsewhere.

The last three times I've visited Miami, I have stood in this Boutique Hotel. First time was in 2009.
The hotel is super cute and smells amazing! To describe it, it's like a Cuban style boutique hotel. When you walk in your greeted with smiles and hellos, and they are always willing to help. This last time I went they were doing lots of construction seems like they were renovating the place, but didn't bother. It's right across the street from Miami beach and only a 5-10 min drive to South Beach. We loved to stay here to get away from the South Beach madness and come someplace quite. We hung out daily in SB, but it was good to go someplace more relaxing after a long day. I've also stood in the suite! It's really big and cozy, I highly recommend. Parking is perfect we always would rent a car and also rented a scooter and was able to park in the lot with no issues.

The only complaint I have is that they stopped having the free complementary breakfast every morning. They used to have it before, not quite sure why they stopped. It wasn't an extravagant breakfast but it was deff something to look forward to once leaving the hotel to start your day.

Other then that it's a cozy cool place to stay whole out in Miami.

Dear Str8Jazzy,
What an absolute pleasure it was to have you back as one of our loyal and repeat Circa 39 guests! I truly appreciate you taking the time to share your experiences with us of your last stay in August.

Our new WunderBar surprises with unusual local and global craft spirit selections, fine rums, craft beers and cocktails infused with flavors from around the world, and serves light bites poolside and in the lounge. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you soon for a totally brand new Circa 39 experience!

Spent two nights while visiting Miami Beach for a wedding. The hotel is is newly renovated and had most conveniences. The rooms are not very large but very adequate. There was a mini fridge in the closet but the room did not have a microwave. The courtyard is lovely and shaded. A small parking (self park) is closely located around the corner across the street. After an evening out, we got back to the hotel very late and got the last spot - unfortunately there was someone behind us that was not as lucky. It is not a big hotel so there is never a long wait for the elevator. There is a bar and bistro on site. In addition, there is a small gym with cardio equipment. There is a daily fee which covers wi-fi, beach towels, etc.

I was very pleased with what I found! Being my first time in Miami and on a budget I couldn't stay on the "famous" South Miami Beach Hotels or the big "branded" resorts, so I had to set for a more economic hotel on a (what i thought would be) not so good location. So I'm happy to say I was completely wrong. The hotel staff, to begin with, was very friendly and helpful. The Hotel decor is so cute we could stay hours spotting nice little details. The breakfast area is small and can get a little crowded. I have to admit, after a few days I was craving for some variety on the breakfast menu. The rooms are very clean and everything seems to have been renovated a little while ago. Just less than a block from the white sand beach and they have beach service. If you don't mind staying right on the trendy crowded South Beach, I'd totally recommend this place.

Dear ThainePenachione,
Thank you for choosing to stay with us on your first time in Miami. It is with great pleasure that we read of your satisfaction with the price/quality ratio we have to offer our guests at Circa 39 Hotel. We could not be happier to know that you appreciated the little details inspired by all corners of the world providing a laid-back retreat for our travelers and could not agree more with you when it comes to our location, which is indeed further north from South Beach, thus allowing our guests to enjoy the peaceful tranquility of the secluded and pristine beach while still having the option to head down to Ocean Drive by taking a short cab drive or walking down the beach boardwalk to the heart of South Beach. Thank you so much for recommending our hotel and we look forward to many more future stays!
Warm regards,
Alma

This was my first visit to Miami, much less to South Beach. This vintage hotel has been updated of current time, but in a subtle way. Sitting out by the pool, even though it had been a windy day, was scrumptious. Our room was stunning. I felt as if I had stepped into another world, one that was both glamorous and vintage. The staff was very helpful in all areas, considerate and friendly.

WE STAYED THERE JAN 1013 AFTER A CRUISE FOR A COUPLE DAYS ACROSS THE STREET IS THE BEACH , THE HOTEL DOES HAVE CHAIRS AVAILABLE THERE.
HOTEL IS CLEAN& STAFF ARE FRIENDLY . THE POOL IS SMALL & NOT TOO BUSY.Small bistro the food is good.. & prices fair as is the bar.

Rooms are small but that was the it was in 39 hard wood floors is a nice touch, I think this would help with the cleaning. Price was fair we booked on the internet.

We would go back

Room Tip: I believe if you book on the internet you do not get a choice of room location.
