“Best choice for budget travellers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

This was my second stay at the Miami Hotel, and it was just as good as my first. This time I stayed in one of the superior rooms with en suite, and the place was spotless. I was able to get an early check in which was greatly appreciated, and the staff on the desk were consistently kind and friendly.

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. It is outstanding value.

Stayed at the Miami Hotel in Melbourne for three nights in November and I was extremely satisfied. We were greeted by a friendly man at reception called George who made an effort to ask our names and talk to us a lot about the area and what the hotel has to offer.

I booked a superior twin room for $309 for 3 nights. There were no double rooms available at the time in my price range. When we were checking in George tried to offer us an upgrade to a double room for an additional $30! We declined and just pushed the beds together ourselves, which was fine! We had our own en suite bathroom which was spotless. It included complimentary shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, hand soap, body lotion, shaving cream, and towels. I did not get a look at the shared bathrooms facilities as our key cards would not open those doors. The shared kitchen was very clean.

The hotel itself is a bit of a walk to the city which we did not mind. In 20 mins you can be at Southern Cross station, or in 5 mins there are lovely cafes and a bar or two on nearby Errol Street. We got a taxi back from Fitzroy one night which cost us $11.50, which I was pleasantly surprised about. (I’m used to Sydney prices!) The zoo is a 30 min walk.

All in all, we had a very pleasant stay and I would stay again the next time we come back to Melbourne.

I contacted the Miami with quite short notice for a small group. They were extremely accommodating of our needs and the staff were very helpful. I highly recommend this hotel for groups. The rooms aren't huge but they are very clean and comfortable. We stayed on the second floor and there's no lift/elevator so you have to be prepared to walk up and down stairs a few times, but that's not a big deal. Errol street was just a few minutes walk away with some great restaurants.

Great people, great location, great breakfast! Although a little hesitant on arrival (from the street the Miami looks more like a backpacker hostel than hotel) our fears were soon waylaid on checking on. The staff are very welcoming and our double room on the first floor was clean & comfortable if on the small side. The bathroom was big!
It's easy to get into the city from the hotel and some great restaurants and pubs nearby for relaxing after a big day out doing whatever took you to Melbourne. We stayed here when visiting the Monet exhibition in June. Coffee and cooked breakfast was excellent value and a great start to the day! We'll stay again when next in Melbourne.

I stayed at the Miami earlier this year for one night while staying in Melbourne. The hotel is inexpensive by Melbourne standards, and offers clean rooms (if not a little bit on the small side for two people) with big beds. It's geared up for groups staying, and there were some groups of schoolkids staying there, but they kept themsevles to themselves. The reception staff were really friendly and happy to help. There's also a laundry on site which was very useful, and free wifi whcih worked in the room. The hotel itself is ideally situated for Victoria Market and about a 15 minute walk into the very centre of Melbourne.

Very nice staff, 24 hours a day. clean but rather small room. Good and clean bathroom. Unfortunately bad isolation against noise from neighbours, from the stairsway). We would use it again for a short stay thanks to raisonable price and good location.
