Wanted a (relatively) cheap place to stay in South Beach for one night and this did the trick. Near the beach, all the good stuff. Felt safe in the neighborhood at night. OK, weird plastic furniture, small rooms but place was normal and clean. Only neg is room was loud - either vibrations from nearby clubs a/c unit or both.

The Hotel pictures always look better than they are!! There is nothing special about this hotel it is very average the hallways are very dark and the rooms need to be updated. On a good note the receptionists are very helpful.

Chill out people. How much did you pay for your rooms? I stayed in the Royal South Beach with my partner in December. Okay, it's not the Ritz - you knew that, right? You say the furniture is made from white moulded plastic. You knew that too, right? We arrived late one Monday evening and the girl at the desk,... More

My stay: February 26, 2007 I am a woman who often travels alone. I've been doing it for 20 years. In all my travels, all my cities, I've never felt as unsafe at night as in this "luxury" hotel. The hotel owners should be sued for the description they've provided. The hallways in this hotel are almost unlit--the attempt at... More

Not worth the few dollars saved. Tiny room, everything was "white" (guess it was the art-deco?) which showed all the stains and how rundown the room and furniture actually were. The "kitchenette" was tiny, the "stove" did not even work properly; not to mention the utensils and dishes were dirty. Plenty of problems -- electricity shut off at least 1-3... More

I sent the following note to the hotel in reply to email request for feedback. I received no response. It was a terrible stay. I stayed from 12/31-1/3 and the first morning I woke up, there was no water. I picked up the phone in the room, and the phone wasn't working. I had to go downstairs to find out... More

My partner and I stayed three nights over Easter break 2006 and we had nothing but problems - 3 'floods' in one room! First night the fridge leaked tons of water all over my partner's bag, which ruined our camera. Second, water damage was at the base of the wall under the A/C. After noticing the water we noted there... More

Just returned from a long weekend at the Royal SoBe. It was everything their website said it would be. It is a small, friendly hotel in the midst of everything--clubs, shops, Lincolnd Road (my personal favorite), Ocean Drive, the beach, etc. The rates were great, the room was clean (they just replaced all the hallway carpeting too) and the staff...
