Love this hotel, not sure what the negative reviews are about. I've stayed at Soho House, the Edition hotel, but I always come back to Blanc Kara. This is a hotel for saavy travelers and not tourists expecting a pool and room service. I have been staying here for years and I love it, recommend to all of my friends that like being close to south beach but don't feel like paying an arm and a leg for a hotel room. Love the no kids policy as well. Staff is friendly, hotel is clean, full kitchen where we can make breakfast or have something for lunch. A block away from the beach and Starbucks and a short walk to Ocean Drive. If we need a car we pick one up at Sixt on 5th street which is a 4 block walk from the hotel.

We highly recommend this hotel for its great location and good price. We chose the hotel because we had been there before some years ago. The rooms are spacious and clean fully equipped with a kitchen. Shops, restaurants and Ocean Drive are just round the corner. It is an adult only hotel, which we liked very much. There has been a lovely breakfast room for some time. We loved breakfast very much because we got all we wanted. Staff was very friendly and helpful. There were small misunderstandings due to language but nothing serious. People have written about the high price of valet parking. We disagree with their view and chose the service because parking is expensive in Miami anyway and a lot easier to leave the car just outside. The hotel is a lot more quiet than the area around Ocean Drive. Therefore, we think this is one of the best choices for a hotel in Miami. We will return there anytime.

I loved everything about this hotel! The superior studio room was amazingly roomy and clean! The breakfast restaurant is adorable! Jackie gives a great service every morning! The hotel is very quiet, close to the beach and walking distance to Ocean Drive's nightlife. I recommend the everglades tour.

Nice little hotel, many restaurants and bars just a few blocks away, room was very clean and huge, nice kitchen area and bathroom was light and bright. Very quiet, comfortable bed, it is more like a European hotel so the bed is firm and low to the ground. Pillows are also firm. Checking in was easy and smooth. Breakfast was limited but really good, I had ham and cheese croissant, really good coffee and fresh juice. They also had cereal’s, pastries, boiled eggs, yogurt.. and the service in the tea room was outstanding. I walk a few blocks to the beach, the sunset was amazing. I will be back.

I booked a trip to Miami to celebrate my 39 bday, this is a vacation property management then “hotel”. My room 208 (don’t book) WAS NOT SUITABLE TO SLEEP IN ,I noticed a huge WI-FI ROUTER NEAR THE BED! In 2023 we aware of staying away from strong radiation CAUSING CANCER TUMOURS . The front desk approved and promised to hôtels.com agent and to me that my room will be changed in the morning . I packed my bags and had to stay on the sofa away from the router, barely had sleep and in the morning the girl from the front desk refused to speak with me about it AS SHE IS NOW WORKING AT THE BREAKFAST LOUNGE. And left me to start again explaining to a new guy at his 2nd day at the front desk who didn’t no what to do. BOTTOM LINE THE MANAGER/OWNER DID NOT OFFER ANY SOLUTIONS , refused even to refund and agents called few times- 3 days in a raw! asking him to approve at least some refund and again said NO and no one took responsibility about the fact that I HAD TO SLEEP ON THE SOFA, that is the most awful vacation I ever had and been humiliated. Regardless of the above there were more issues- the room ac was noisy like bus engine (I turned it off) , the windows facing the building next to the property and very close so no light inside all you see is a wall. But the most and only thing that was horrible is the POOR HUMAN DIGNITY of the owners not to take responsibility especially after I was told my room will be changed and even when shared my friend had cancer.

We have travelled for decades mostly to nice, boutique hotels. Blanc Kara was a major disappointment as the room we were assigned was not ready, should have been taken out of service, but was not. Poor maintenance or just incompetence, this small hotel in a nice location, is clearly, in our opinion, not near ready for Prime Time.

Scam. Deceit. Unprofessional. (This is a late review of our stay here back in the summer of 2022. Never forgot about this horrible experience.) We booked two weeks in advance but when we got there, we were RELOCATED to a different hotel nearby without ANY prior notice! Imagine getting off the plane, arriving at your hotel with your booking reservation, only to be told that your room is two blocks away in a dingy 2-star hotel. They didn't give us refund or any compensation, not even a simple apology, nothing. So we basically paid full price and were relocated to a random hotel down the block. The front desk lady with a heavy French accent was incredibly rude and hard to talk to, she would jeer at our comments and would not maintain eye contact. She lied to us about how it's same hotel, just a different location because the rooms are all fully booked. (how can it be fully booked when we reserved a room 2 weeks prior and received a confirmation??). She kept calling her manager, but couldn't solve any problems. I talked to the manager (Raphael?) on the phone, expressed my dissatisfaction, but his attitude was basically "take it or leave it". We went to the hotel they pointed us to, and it's a completely different establishment. It turns out they used Booking.com to reserve a separate hotel room, and expects us to spend the night there. Not trying to knock the other hotel establishment, but it's considerably lower quality. NOT what we booked. This went on for over 2 hours, and they finally offered a room at Blanc Kara. When we got to the room, the window were all taped shut, the smell was horrible, hard to breathe, seemed like it's still under construction. We couldn't imagine spending a night in a room that's still renovating, with no windows and bad air ventilation. So we had no choice but to stay at the hotel they booked for us without our consent. Needless to say, unless they switched owners or management, please stay away this establishment, save your time and sanity, trust me.

The good: Location is excellent, in a quieter area but easy walking distance to everywhere you'd want to be at South Beach. The rooms are big, the beds are extremely comfortable and the staff are pleasant. Contrary to other reviews we found the breakfast perfectly acceptable - although the room it's served in is small it's nicely decorated, even instagram worthy! The bad: The public area/hallway on floor 2 stinks of damp. The air con in each room is extremely noisy and only has two modes - "on" (extremely noisy the whole time), and "auto" (quiet until the room warms past the threshold when it will immediately burst into extremely noisy mode and guarantee to disturb your sleep 100% of the time). We stayed here twice and this was the main issue in both rooms. The most significant problem however, was that it took their payment provider the full 31 days for our room deposits to be released/returned which is simply unacceptable. The staff did their best to chase the payment provider up but it didn't achieve anything.

We chose this hotel because it was away from all the noise and wanted to make sure we get our sleep in during vacation. Also because we wnated a microwave. However, everything went to hell. Perhaps the hotel put us in an unfavorable room because we booked through a third party. We will never return here. Cons • Uncomfortable small pillows. First time ever experiencing horrible hotel pillows. • No lock in bathroom so no privacy. • There is a piece of glass that separates the shower from the toilet but not even a curtain is up so all the water goes onto the floor of the whole bathroom. • The door from terrace from the room was locked due to renovation. No one from the hotel doesn't let you know before or after booking. You are just left with the surprise when you get to the room. Smh. • They were drilling and jackhammering the terrace from 8am the next morning. Welcome to hell. The next day, they continued working in there and you hear all the noise. What is sleep? • You can't open the blinds because the contract workers were right by your window so you would be forced to leave them closed for the entire stay. Welcome to a gloomy room. • The free breakfast was from 830 to 1030. It was cold boiled eggs, Activa yogurt, deli cuts of meat and cheese, and carbs like croissants. They can't serve hot food apparently. Why not just have that available all day then? Guests should be allowed to take it upstairs atleast until 10pm to heat up the food and eat it however they want. Atleast the croissants. It seems like they server the same batch the next day and the day after until its gone. The tea room is a waste. • The main door automatically locks at 10pm but there is no sign anywhere that says that. You have to use your card to get in. • The place is 3 floors and the elevator is so slow. • Carpeting on the hallways are awful and smells wet and moldy. • The decor is untastful with black walls and weird carpet floors in the hallways. The rooms have black floors. There is a gloomy feeling throughout. Pro • 24 hours front desk who always answers the phone. • The workers in the breakfast area are extremely kind. • House keeping workers are kind and do a good job cleaning. • The whole hotel is clean overall. No pests or insects in sight.
