Following a glowing write-up of this Hotel in UK's Daily Telegraph newspaper, we cancelled an existing booking and switched to the Sense Hotel !! What a mistake !! We were sold a "Deluxe Ocean View" (I still have their email confirming this). Sense Hotel is on 4th St. You cabn only have an ocean view from 5th St on. We... More

Room was nice. It was very clean. Location is good, close to everything but still quite. Staff was friendly. My only problem was a water pipe that was rattling in the wall of our room. Every once in a while it would rattle pretty loudly. The one evening I went down to the front desk to ask about the noise.... More

I loved staying here and would stay again without hesitation. The beds were comfortable (Tempur-Pedic), bathroom clean, and location terrific. It was awesome to be close to the beach and far from the noise of Ocean Drive north of Fifth Street. The hotel had lightweight beach chairs, umbrellas, and extra towels available and was located close to a Walgreens for... More

The room - gorgeous! Service - exceptional! Location - if using public transport from miami int.airport, will take a little while to walk from where dropped off but otherwise - close to the beach (perfect for early morning sunrise), close to all bars/restaurants etc, walking distance to shopping.

The hotel location is superb as you can move around easily on foot. The famous Miami ink is only 10min walk away including Dash store and Collins avenue. The beach is a minute walk from the hotel door. The staff at sense were very welcoming and friendly and advised us on where to go for cheap eats as well as... More

Great location, we were able to walk everywhere we needed (although the heat is a killer). Staff at the front desk were helpful, some more than others. The room was great, clean & tidy with plenty of room. Balcony is only small & the ocean view is only just, probably not worth the extra &&
