Worst hotel I ever spend a night. Loud music until 4am. Our hallway smelled like weed. Uncomfortable beds. Booked 3 nights but left after one. Don't go here if you want to sleep. There are much better alternatives nearby like Riviera hotel.
When we booked our trip at this hotel, we wanted the perfect location. It is walking distance from everything touristy to do in South Beach and a stones throw away from the beach! My advice for any travelers looking to stay in a boutique hotel in this area, check all of the amenities and how much they charge for a resort fee. Unfortunately, this hotel charges a resort fee and I never quite understood why. There is no breaks fast included, a pool, and the thermostat doesn’t work. The gentleman who helps you with your bags was extremely friendly and the bartender on the roof was one of the most fun bartenders we have ever met! If you choose to stay here, make sure you bring an extra blanket and extra pillows. It is clean, close to everything and extremely affordable. They have a designated area on the beach but BYOB! …
Arrived at the hotel, was friendly and easy. We got to the room and it stank, STANK of smoke. Called down and asked to move. They said they were full so sent the cleaner to spray the room. Windows don’t open so no chance of letting any fresh air in. Hotel is clean but basic. I have heard complaints of noise however I am staying on the 3rd floor and the noise was ok. That said, I have stayed in worse around South Beach... Roof is really nice however opens at 7pm and the welcome drinks are limited to wine and beer... Would I come back? Probably?! However it’s clear there’s work need to be done here.
This is a pretty basic hotel. You have to sign a ‘contract’ when you check in which is where you’ll first get sight of the ‘resort’ fee, a total rip off — basically paying extra for nothing. Our room (with a no smoking sign inside) absolutely stank of smoke. Disgusting. They couldn’t do anything about it. Rooms are pretty bland, no colour or warmth about them. Shower was weak and covered in limescale. Valet is ridiculous at $36. You can get a free beer or plastic glass of wine from the rooftop bar which is probably the main positive about the place. You get what you pay for and this doesn’t feel like anything special at all.
We loved staying here. The beach is a few yards away and the location is very convenient to the best attractions. There is a beautiful rooftop that becomes a bar six nights a week. The lobby and rooms have a South Beach vibe and the building itself is Art Deco. The staff is lovely and helpful. We enjoyed the coffee and breakfast/ lunch bar in the lobby. I would recommend this hotel on all counts; location,appearance, service and style.
