Having stayed here for 11 nights, the hotel itself is clean, well kept and with great maid service. Check in is a little chaotic and through booking.com there were lots of hidden extras that came out of the blue. It's incredibly expensive for what it is and is (for my taste) just too much in the centre of the Hustle...

The hotel is very clean, staff is very attentive, nice ice cream shop at the lobby! Restaurants and bars are close proximity!! The only down fall is that hotel restaurant is expensive and the waiters/waitress do not show adequate services! Take too long for drinks and food, even for the check!

First the good, then the bad. The Good - great location, friendly staff, clean, comfortable, historic boutique hotel. Hotel was even a stop on the walking tour that we did while visiting South Beach. The bad - the breakfast included with the room rate was POOR; from the eggs to the pancakes, to the juice, to the coffee. There are...

The staff was amazing! We absolutely loved the professionalism from the employees at the front desk, valet and manager. The breakfast was delicious especially the coffee. We road bikes everyday and even got a flat tire. They took care of us. Thank you for everything!

The room 404 was very large and spacious, the music from the rooftop bar next door finishes at 4-5am so do not expect any sleep before that time! It is in the disco party area so to be expected. The food is expensive as due to location , we ate once in the restaurant fish & chip , 1 burger...

The hotel is in the middle of all the big Ocean restaurants. It's a loud location, but lots of fun. Our room had double windows that blocked out the music that goes on all night. Our room was right under the hotel sign and part ocean view. The staff was friendly and attentive enough. Complimentary breakfast was the same everyday....

You will be near to the beach, Collins, restaurants, shops, etc. Our stay was great, we enjoy all of it, only with de exception that at night it was a Little bit noisy, cause of the bar in the first floor.
