Perfect location, right in the heart of south beach. We stayed in #107, studio apt. The room was not as nice as the pictures. Some areas of the room have not been cleaned in a while. There were roaches, bugs, in the room and the kitchen was not clean. The owner was nice, we already had reservations so we stuck... More

A reasonably sized self catering hotel right on Ocean Drive at the TGI Friday end of the strip. Don't understand the complaints on the forum, it's on the very cheap end of accommodation on south beach. Ideal for holiday with friends,not for families.

Should be no stars. Stayed in apartment 218, it said it was newly refurbished but what it means is that that walls have been painted. Photos were misleading as the main bedroom doesn't have a TV in. Both bathrooms smell of sewage and are old and dirty. Towels that were provided had various stains and some had hair on. Was... More

We had a great stay at the Barbizon in SoBe. You can not beat the location. The trip advisor 'near me now' feature listed 100's of restaurants/bars within 0.1 miles sitting in the 218 suite. 2 bed 2 bath, plenty of room for myself, wife and two children. Whatever Helena is being paid, it should be doubled. She was extremely... More

We stayed in rooms 218 and 204 for a long weekend bachelorette party of 9 girls. 218 had fewer bedrooms but a larger shared space(one large bedroom w/ en suite full bath, one very tiny bedroom with full bath across the "living room") but very clean. Both rooms are filled with natural light and decorated in a modern style with... More

The pictures are not what they seem. DO not stay in 215. The bed will kill you. My back is still hurting. It is a full size not queen.The mattress is horrible. Bring a blow up one for the floor. You'd be better off on that. Helena the caretaker of the place is awesome. I wish she knew she deserved... More

We arrived after 5 pm.3rd floor. Smells like marihuana everywhere (maybe someone has a skunk for a pet!), Room was dirty. Cleaning lady came, cleaned shower. Dingy, very small, kitchen appliances look like garbage (many years ago I threw way my Teflon fry pens, which were 100 times in better shape). Shower does not drain, you have to stand in... More

I have some mixed feelings after staying there. I'll start with good once: Location is amazing! Helina (the maintenance lady) was very nice and cooperative. Room is spacey, looks like on the picture. That place might be much better, if it has gone through heavy cleaning. By cleaning I mean not removing obvious big pieces of junk, but actual cleaning,... More

WIsh I had read these reviews before booking, I never would have come. I rented 216 from Lucinda. The photos of the unit were accurate, although when we arrived the unit really needed some basic maintenance, like new paint. Kitchen and bathroom are old and not in great shape but everything worked. One big flaw, no coffee maker for some... More

Perfect spot on sobe if you want something affordable. It's not the 4 seasons but also doesn't come with the pretension either. Resto next door is great for tacos at lunch. Apt is under new ownership so updates are in definite need.
