Reviewed August 13, 2014

A very nice little (17 rooms) boutique hotel that reminds us of a place we stayed at in Paris. Every employee we met was extremely nice and helpful. Rooms were spacious and the rain shower in the bathroom was a huge bonus to wash away the daunting humidity. We stayed in room 200 and it was pretty quiet. If you have a car just valet it...save the hassle it is only a few dollars more than to park it yourself. This hotel is in walking distance to many eateries and shops and it is 5 min easy walk to a great beach.

We had a great stay at this boutique hotel. Close to everything. The beach is one block away; Starbucks is around the corner. Espresso in the room. Very clean and well appointed rooms. All staff were friendly and accommodating. Serita was especially helpful and the stay could not have been better.

Loved our stay at the Hotel Impala! Perfect location in the heart of it all, yet feels secluded at the same time, near all the shops and restaurants and a block away from Ocean Drive. The hotel itself is great with a mediterranean feel and the staff super friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended!

This hotel is great. Beautiful rooms and friendly staff. It is walking distance to Lincoln Ave. mall and to the beach and to nightclubs. My husband and I spent the weekend here and would stay again. Parking is not easy in this area and it is worth using the valet.

The hotel only has 17 rooms and isn't anything ridiculously fancy but everything it does it does perfectly. The staff at the front desk are all very helpful, the whole building and front courtyard/ garden is beautifully decorated and has an italian townhouse/ Versace-esque feel, the beds are comfy and bedroom is clean and the bathroom is pretty and everything is in order, is clean and works. The hotel is 3 minutes' walk to the beach and on the road that is close to both daytime bars/ restaurant (ocean drive) and nightlife (Washington avenue).

One thing I would recommend is not getting the breakfast at the hotel if you have time to laze around and eat breakfast outside...the hotel breakfast was healthy and very filling but all restaurants on ocean drive do a mega breakfast for cheaper

Wow! Thank you so much for your kind words! We are very proud to read that you had a perfect stay! I am sorry to know you did not find the breakfast here worth it, we try to focus on quality French products and offer an excellent continental breakfast but do not offer any hot dishes indeed. Should you prefer a more Full American breakfast, we will be delighted to recommend some nice places a few steps from the hotel! Thank you again for sharing this great review!
