I’m having the worst stay at your hotel. On the first floor, right next to open dining so it loud as hell at 10 pm. Not that I can sleep because there is no a/c and the desk attendant refuses to do anything about it. $350 a night to get screwed. Your suck

Hotel's Favorite
My girl celebrated her birthday in south beach with some friends.. We stayed in this hotel and it was an amazing experience.. Our room is very clean and you would see house keeping cleaning everyday in the hotel.. Staff are very helpful with all that we needed.. Free breakfast in havana is amazing, same food everyday but it helps lessen the spending for the day.. I saw some reviews that some people complaint about how far the free chairs and umbrellas are, it’s not that far and it’s a nice walk in the morning.. Would definitely recommend this hotel and I would love to come back..

Loved this hotel. The lobby could use a new face bit you can't beat free loungers and free breakfast included. It is in a perfect tourist spot on wonderful south beach. The rooms are all updated and adorable. Staff was also nice. I would absolutely stay again!

We stayed here recently as a couple. The location is fantastic, hotel is nice and was clean. It can be pretty noisy at night with other hotel guests but overall a good experience. Unfortunately the breakfast included in our package was terrible. We ended up eating out for breakfast which is the main reason to take away the final star!

What a little gem of hotel on Ocean Drive south beach Miami Even though it is a old hotel it has been redone. The room was spacious and super clean Staff friendly especially Nesrine at the reception that helped me with another booking and was just super super friendly with all my questions I had dinner at the hotels restaurant on the bustling street - what a vibe. Food was good value for money delicious and the staff also super friendly I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel 🏆

The hotel is in a perfect location. Close to all that you need. It is as represented in all pictures. The only downside is the water pressure in the shower, but that is to be expected of a building built in the 1930's. Also, I wasn't a fan of the breakfast that is included as it is a shortened version of the paid breakfast menu and my first was cold and then microwaved to heat it, which pretty much ruined my eggs. I would definitely stay here again as the positives outweighed the negatives. Shout out to Nesrine at the front desk, who always greeted me with a smile and was open to help with any of my requests. A special shout-out and thanks to Eddie, also at the front desk. A lovely young man whose bright disposition and willingness to help at all times was a welcome to my entry and exit to the hotel whenever he was on shift. I also met who I think was either the manager or owner a couple of times who I found to be both welcoming and courteous. I'll see you again soon. Thank you for making my first, but not last visit to Sounthbeach such a wonderful experience.

I stayed here one night before cruising out. The room was pretty average but was a decent size. Staff was friendly. Breakfast is a few doors down and the food was good enough. It's right on the beach and on the main strip in South Beach, so the park and the boardwalk are right across from the hotel.

We went to Cavalier to have Breakfast during our holidays. Probably the worst breakfast on earth !!! Poor choice of coffee (only American coffee) & tea (only black tea), awfull food, 30 min to get a disgusting granola, and 2 nice waiters but for 30 tables … so 15 min to get a glass of water. A place to run away from !

Eddy on the front desk this eve very obliging & apologetic. Noisy aircon unit in my initial room & so switched me to quieter one. Thx Ed - good man. Great rooms by the way & love the Art Deco feel to the place in all areas. Will definitely visit again when in Miami. Thank you.
