“Good value for money, great location but dated”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

This hotel was better than expected- however I was disppointed we were made to pay for luggage minding.

I loved that the hotels location is near the street markets. The street markets at Sukumvhit better prices than Patong markets!

The hotel didn't provide breakfast but McDonalds and Subway is near by.

Close to Nana train station which is the same line that goes to Chatuchak Markets. It is easy to navigate the train lines

We were 3 adults and stayed in a family room, the room was very large which was welcome, bathroom was dated and in need of a reno

Pool was nice and refreshing and there was a 7 11 next door as well as a laundry

Was pleasantly surprised at Miami hotel. Arrived early and was given early check in around 8am, much appreciated. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and freshly painted. Good tv and fridge. Old ac but did the job. Bathroom and room good size. Could do with black out curtains but minor. Pool looked great but could do with updating poolside furniture some of the wooden loungers had exposed old nails. Small negative but why not repair?

Why? Why stay here when Bangkok has so many other choices, everything from backpacker hostels to fantastic boutique hotels to upscale (but not snobby) hotels in the Sukhumvit area.
My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights after 6 weeks of roughing it through Cambodia and Vietnam, so we weren't expecting luxury, but this place is just downright dirty. The rooms are basic, with standard dorm-room type furniture and huge windows (ours looked into the courtyard). Our bedding was absolutely filthy, and there was left-over garbage from previous guests in the room under the bed and in the corners. We shrugged it all off, even the "abandoned hospital" feel of the place, until my wife politely asked someone to come up and take a look at the air conditioner in our room as it was stuck on "super cold". We were greeted a few hours later with a knock on the door and a pissed-off staff member who walked silently past us into the room, turned the air con off and walked out without saying a word.
While checking out the next day the front desk guy tried to charge us extra for towels and some bogus extra cleaning fee.
Do yourself a favor and skip this place.

Pluses...

- No other hotel in area as cheap as this (THB900) with a swimming pool
- VERY convenient to Nana BTS (Skytrain). All similarly priced hotels nearby are waaaay down (sois) lanes with unreliable shuttles back. At Miami you can walk
- not expensive (well, *everything* in Bangkok is these days)
- large fridges and bath tubs
- large swimming pool
- attractive patio
- wide hallways
- retro 1960s decor
- 7-11 convenience store next door
- comfy chairs

Minuses...

- A lot of mismatched mattress and bases, so they are sloppy fits. i got a very firm mattress where fortunately the top was slightly smaller than the top, the reverse of the usual
- bath tub plugs don't always fit (slowly leak)
- When empty bathtub, drain on bathroom floor surges and floods floor
- Cannot adjust air-con, it's off or on only (staff has knob to adjust, bring your own?)
- no bedside table

Room Tip: Realize you get what you pay for Sleep in places not recommended, they will be better deals

Only stay here if you want to hand wash your own towels!

Clean, spacious and a good location to stay on Suk road. Cheap with 3 of us in the room.

When we checked out however they tried to say we had stained 2 of the white towels and were charging us like 300THB for them. We protested saying they could be easily cleaned but the manager was quite insistent that we pay up. My girlfriend went to the toilet with one of the towels and cleaned it by hand in like 5 minutes; they weren't actually badly stained. At this revelation the manager didn't offer any apology or anything, just told us all to get out. Left a bad taint on our experience staying at Miami, which was otherwise pretty good.

Room Tip: dont stain the towels in any way!

It's quite hard to comment towards this hotel on their style. Obviously it's the old hotel with old styles back in the day and they dont see to change anything and be more up-to-date. So it's a sixties vibe but it's no longer fresh look, things look a bit too old and scary in a way. But I take it as a charm. The bed was comfortable and clean, they changed the sheet everyday including towels but the bathroom was just ok. facilities were not new, so it may work slow sometimes and didnt look very clean.

The swimming pool is great, perfect size and depth.

The service part, even though the bell boys were very helpful but we found we lost one bag after we moved all the bag to the room (13 bags we got, I tipped them anyway becoz we had so many bags and many of them are small plus we been moving to several places, so there's a chance we lost it before)

One bad thing: They dont have wifi service, but has 3 - 4 computers downstair with coin system (10 bt/10 mins). You get what you paid for. I paid 900 baht a night and it's in the heartbeat area of bangkok, can't complain much. All in all, the vibe I got from the hotel was weird but in a good way. I would consider to go back there again for only the short trips in bkk. If you look for cheap hotel for a few days right at the heart of bangkok, Miami must be one of the few choices. or else, Khaosan road, there u could get better and newer hotel with that price or cheaper
