The location and the vibe of this boutique hotel is perfect. All the people that work there is gently and friendly. The food is excellent. The restaurant closes at 9 pm, so you can have a quiet sleep because the hotel is not so close to the noisy area of Ocean Drive. Room has a perfect size, moder installation and very clean. We were in room No 3 that is in a coner and we loved. We will come back for sure! And it is highly recommended.

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.

It was my first stay in Miami and I have to say I will always return to the Local House. The staff were the nicest and kindest hotel staff I've ever encountered. The hashbrowns WERE TO DIE FOR. AND the hotel was clean, quiet, and beautiful. So greatful for my stay and the experience Local House gave us.

This hotel is in a perfect location! Literally a street over is where all the actions start. Safe and very clean hotel, bar, and restaurant located one block away from the beach. My room was super spacious and decorated nicely. Our Room also included beach towels, beach chairs and a beach umbrella which was super convenient. Lots of fun places to eat and drink and even to rent bikes. Selen was the most wonderful hostess to us upon arrival and every time she seen us in the hotel, as for the rest of the staff. This Smaller hotel was perfect, made us feel like family instead of the big chain hotels just another guest. DEFINITELY RECOMMENDING to family and friends!

Food is overpriced and the restaurant added 18% tip to the bill without our permission. Bill was $107 for 3 breakfasts 😳 I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to anyone! Not sure how they got high rating
