We stayed here on the recommendation of some friends. What a great place. The staff is super friendly. Nice pool and courtyard out to the ocean. Cabana and beach chairs. Short walk to the south beach strip along the beachfront. We got a partial Oceanview, totally worth it.

We stayed here for an impromptu weekend get away. The hotel is at a great location and has a super friendly staff. The room is bare bones but clean. Tiny Florida bathroom like most other hotels. The pool is great with lots of lounge chairs. There is a path that leads right out to the beach where you can rent...

The best point is the location both to go around the town as to go to the beach. All the rest is rather bad: the rooms were not well cleaned (the windows were not cleaned for months, I guess!), not one single request was done (unless or go directly to the staff in the corridors and get what you want...

Room a bit small. We were three, just about enough air. The only service minded staff was in the reception, the lady there was great. Pool area nice, but why not have some lamps there when it gets dark? Would be a lot more cozy and elegant. As the hotel next door, that also had games in the garden like...

We spend 6 days in this hotel, it was our first visit to Miami Beach and it couldn't be better. It's an older hotel but very nice and clean. The room we got was not so big and aircondition made a lot of noise but it was not a problem to change the room and we enjoyed the rest of...

Older hotel. Good size room and closet. Small Bathroom. Room was on the 3rd floor facing Collins Ave. It was very noisy making it hard to sleep. It sounded like the windows were open and not sealed all the way even though they were closed. The air would turn on and off causing it to get hot throughout the night....

It's what it says it is: a three starts hotel. It has a nice pool and great access to the beach. Staff is amazing and very polite. Location is also great, to two blocks from Lincoln road and between 5-6 blocks from Ocean drive. Breakfast is poor and almost always you don't have where to sit down to take breakfast....

Old rooms... like a lot of SoBe hotels. Floors are loud and creaky. Our view out of the window was an alley facing another hotel. You do have the pool area which is ok. You might catch a glimpse of the iguana that wonders around too... Mojito's are excellent!
