This was the second year in a row that we stayed at The Local House in Miami. The rooms are clean and bright. The location is quiet and close to the beach. The staff is friendly and attentive. The restaurant serves fantastic food. We will definitely like to revisit in February 2022

Hotel's Favorite
A small boutique hotel with an excellent location off the main noisy touristic strip of South Beach. Rooms are clean and the inclusive breakfast a very healthy continental choice with plenty of coffee served by extremely friendly waiting staff. Reception is manned and womaned all day and night by extremely pleasant and highly educated young staff from places such as Serbia and Chile and they cannot do enough for you. The roof top pool and relax area is such a bonus. You get deck chairs and umbrellas thrown in plus city bikes and free yoga classes at a local highly trained yoga centre. We love the familial atmosphere and the highly personal service this hotel provides and would stay here again.

This was my 2nd stay at The Local House and I cannot say enough about it!! It is a small hotel with a lot of character!! The breakfast served at the restaurant, along with the service, is absolutely outstanding!! Marcus, Uros and the rest of the breakfast crew were awesome!! The front desk staff was always so welcoming...Katherine, Charlie, Vegina always went above and beyond and made us feel like family!! The Local House is our favorite South Beach hotel!! We cannot wait to return!!

We are truly baffled by some of the other reviews for this place- it was one of the best places we have stayed in the US. The best location-the beach was right across the street and the hotel had beach chairs/umbrella in our room for us to use. Nice and clean rooms, and the showers had hot water. The staff was super friendly every time we came in/out. The food was beyond phenomenal! We do not have one complaint or concern about our experience and have already highly recommended this place to our friends/family back home.

My husband and I come to Local House whenever we visit South Beach. We come for delicious brunches, lunches, and dinners, made from fresh, high quality ingredients. The service—especially our favorite waiter, Pavle, who is fast, attentive, and really kind too—is terrific. We recommend the lobster benedict, breaded cauliflower, and the tuna-avocado salad. Oh, and don’t miss the bloody Mary! : )
