Nice hotel, sadly located above bar that tends to be thriving on weekends, so You can expect some noise and feel the bass vibration from the venue below. Nevertheless the staff is very helpful, rooms are very well equiped, cable tv present, everything clean and "boutique", and in comparison with other places with comparable properties, this one comes cheaper. I...

Fantastic location! Accessible to the beach, reataurants, and shopping! Chic, artsy, modern vibe. Bar, cafe, outside seating. Price was great especially given it was prime time. The hotel was quiet .. However it's in the heart of the city so outside noises are easily heard- not something that bothered us. Clean and very IKEA like.

We spent one night at the Jetset Franklin after flying into Miami. The room was huge with great kitchen facilities and would have been perfect for a week at the beach. The staff were friendly when we checked in and the location was ideal, close to Ocean Drive and the shops. Only down side was the noise, we were there...

Clean Rooms, wi-fi and good position. Not luxury hotel off course, but Perfect for easygoing people Who Want to stay close to The beach and to The nightlife of ocean drive. If you Want to stay in The center of The city you don t need The car. I advice this hotel also for good price

This was my first time staying at this hotel and my second time staying on S.Beach. This hotel was by far the nicest it is around the corner from the beach, short walking distance! The hotel staff was very nice and professional. The rooms look like studio Apartments with a kitchen area. The rooms/furniture remind you of an Ikea show...

First and foremost, Barbara has the best customer service skills. The day we checked out there was a group in front of us that complained to her for 20 minutes that South Beach was extremely loud and too noisy for them. I almost fell out laughing because really...how could she make SB quiet? She was sooooooooo patient, reassuring, and just...
