“Great location, very comfortable room.”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We would highly recommend the Impala, we struggled to find somehwere in Miami Beach at a reasonable price, and booked the Impala based on recent Trip Adviser reports. The location is great, 5 minutes walk from Ocean Drive, but quieter, especially important at night! Our room was beautiful with a boutique style, and large. Agree shower was a bit tempermental but when the temperature was right it was great. The hotel is still doing some re modelling so when we returned briefly to our room during the day there was some noise, but it wasnt a problem.

We would definitley return and recommend to others, we didnt have breakfast in the hotel but went to Davids Ciban Cafe nearby, another great discovery. Finally - friendly helpful reception staff too!

We arrived at the Impala without knowing there was a 3pm check in time (our mistake!) but reception kindly looked after our luggage and once the room was cleaned they let us in by 1.45pm. Aethetically, the building looked average and squeezed in, as does the rest of the South Beach, but once you step through the doors everything is beautiful.

The rooms were stunning and the bed was outrageously comfortable! It has a unique feel to it, as so you are in a mediterranean environment and is really quite calming if you need to get away from the hectic atmosphere outside. We did struggle with the shower to get the temperature right, it was either cold or scolding! The bathroom itself is lovely, and we are very impressed about what you get. The TV remote was a little 'hit or miss' whether it worked, but I guess I may be sounding pedantic!

Overally, i thought the hotel was very nice in a perfect location.

A brilliant central location with everything you would probably want to see within walking distance. We enjoyed 1 fabulous night in Room # 209, which was a lovely clean and comfortable room. Free WIFI. Staff was friendly and helpful. However, wish the continental breakfast was free...
We would recommend this hotel and would come back.

My friends and I stayed at the Impala hotel for a bachelorette party and it was amazing. It was very cozy and boutique like. The rooms must have been remodeled lately. They were very clean!!! It was very nice to be on collins but also have a place to stay that wasn't so "commercial". It's a very short walk from Lincoln Rd. which is where we spent most of our time. The staff was super nice and helpful with places to go. Overall, this was a very clean and family friendly hotel.

Room Tip: The suites were SWEET!!!!

I was entirely impressed with the service at this hotel. The girl behind the desk was especially helpful with parking and suggesting places to go. I've never written a review before, but made a point to get online and spread the word! The hotel itself is clean and adorable and I will stay there again. :)
Thank you Impala!!

Stayed one night with my wife; very pleasant. Found everything clean and in order. Staff was extremely pleasant and gave us a free upgrade to King deluxe room. Lots of cold A/C in the room on a hot, muggy weekend - got a great night's sleep. Appreciated the large shower and extremely comfortable bed. The in-room safe was a little tricky (had to hold the door shut hard to get it to engage) but was a minor thing. Easy 1 block walk to the beach and park, with lots of fun dining options in walking distance. Valet parking was $25 but great service and very convenient.

Room Tip: Rooms near stairway or probably less quiet...

We booked this hotel thru Priceline 4 hrs before we got there. We were concerned because it's hard to go by pictures and we were really concerned if it would be clean enough for us. We LOVED this hotel! We will not stay anywhere else when we go to Miami Beach. It's close to EVERYTHING. CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN...and did I say CLEAN. The staff were very nice also. We stayed in room 207 and there was not a thing wrong. No elevator would be the ONLY downfall but I can live with that when you get a great room, great service, great location at a great price...what more can you ask for! Stay here you will not be disappointed. Oh and very, very quite...No parties or noise in the hallways...Beds had nice linens and the rooms were decorated really nice. The bathroom had an awesome shower also. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: First time there and stayed in room 207...and it was perfect!
