“Great location even better price”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Stopped here in November two minutes from the beach and bars,room was spacious and clean one Queen bed and kitchenette separate great value given the location. Would recommend to anybody on a budget, look to eat on Collins better value than the restaurants on the the drive.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms quieter with no moving chairs to annoy you.

I was really impressed by the Villa Paradiso. The rooms were nicely decorated, very clean and comfortable. I spent a lot of time looking for a hotel in Miami Beach, and couldn't believe I found such a nice, affordable place right in the heart of South Beach. The rooms had a flat-screen tv mounted on the wall, a full kitchen with a refrigerator, sink and stove and hardwood floors throughout. I felt more like I was staying in a nice apartment than in a hotel. It was evident to me when I stayed here that the owners pride themselves on making their guests feel right at home, even though they may be really far from home. It was very easy to walk everywhere from the hotel, and even though there was no onsite parking, there was a parking garage nearby at a cost of $20 per day. I would recommend Villa Paradiso to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Miami Beach. I would definitely stay here again.

Situated in the hear to the Art Deco district this was a wonderful place ot stay with the family for 5 nights in October. The area is really interesting to explore and just one block from the beach. The people on reception were helpful and friendly (we had a problem with the toilet on one evening which was fixed within 1 hour) and the room was spacious with the possibility to cook yourself. We ate out but had breakfast in the morning in the room. Outside you could sit in the nicely decorated garden. You cannot park directly at the hotel, but there is a car park one block away which costs around 20$ per day. If you are looking for a place to stay with the family that is not too expensive, where you can provide for yourself and which has some history and is not just another standard hotel then come here.

This is a good example of tripadvisor's ratings system. It doesn't separate out value vs. luxury properties and is a good reason to read a lot of reviews before booking.

Now, I do have to say that for the price this place is great and the location is perfect.

Pros: Location, price, the garden is really nice, walking distance to everything.

Cons: Not a professionally run property in that the room smelled like it had just been cleaned using my grandmother's Amway products, very strong smell throughout our 24 hour stay. The room is large but sparse and missing most of the common amenities (blow dryer, ironing board, etc.).

Overall: If I were traveling on a tight budget this would be my first choice, but with just a few more bucks I'd maybe look somewhere else.

Room Tip: Bring your own blow dryer.

We stayed here recently between stops in New Oeleans and New York. Unfortunately, we didn't end up making it to NY during the hurricane and this is where Villa Paradiso may have shown its true colours. The phone in our room wasn't working (the drain in our shower was also blocked but this was fixed once we reported it) so we had to use the phone in the reception. We desperately needed to make changes to flights, accommodation etc and the staff were not very helpful. We offered to pay a lot of extra money to be able to make an international call but this was not allowed. Understandably, this wouldn't usually be allowed anyway, but we were stuck with some pretty extraordinary circumstances.

On arrival and departure, we also found the staff a little unwelcoming and unhelpful.

Apart from this though, the location can't really be beaten, the rooms have everything you need and it was a nice change from high end hotels on a long trip throughout the US to have more of a "home" like place to stay.

Would consider staying again but can probably find better
