I stayed here for a week in february, My friend wanted to join me and Dan the manager said it was no problem and upgraded me from a single to a large double for free. Ive travelled to Miami many times, yet Dan recommended many places to me that Id never been to before. His knowledge of Miami is invaluable - what he doesnt know aint worth knowing.
The location is perfect 2 blocks to Ocean Drive or 2 blocks to Lincoln Rd Mall and 2 blocks to Flamingo Park and seconds from Espanola Way, where you are spoilt for choice with fantastic international cuisine.
Also locally are fantastic cheap places to eat....
Playa Cafe for breakfast... Cuban cafe with huge cheap breakfasts on Washington Ave 2mins walk away.
Moshi Moshi for beautiful Bento Boxes for lunch and Hiros for fresh sushi, both on Washington and very reasonably priced.
oh and Art Deco supermarket, which also does cheap takeaway food as well as all groceries.
Rooms were great, large and airy with kitchen facilities, which would be useful if your on a budget, however i didnt cook once.
Theres a small outdoor courtyard to sit and smoke or relax in.
My only complaint is it can be noisy early in the morning with refuse trucks etc, but thats not the hotels fault, its just a fact of life.
For the money and location i would recommend this guest house 100 percent and Dan is the best manager/concierge ive ever met.
Thanks for a fantastic stay. I nwill be returning soon
