Giancarlo and his team run a great operation at this little gem on SoBe. My wife and I spent three nights here (on our honeymoon) and couldn't be happier to have chosen it. It's a deceivingly simple place as it has everything you need and more, not to mention the friendly and super helfpul staff. There is a reason it gets all the positive reviews it does, so my advice is if you are thinking about it book it. It's a great place. Thank you Giancarlo.

I stayed in the townhouse hotel for three nights. The location of the hotel was excellent with a short walk to the beach and close to restaurants and shops. I was surprised about the quality of the help yourself breakfast (coffee, bagels, muffins, croissants...) for that price. There is a bjg rooftop terrasse available as well. The rooms are basic but clean and roomy. Southbeach hotels are expensive and the townhouse hotel is definitively a bargain.

First off, the location is perfect. The Townhouse is located a little further up Collins from some of the bigger, better known hotels, but it is still a short walk from Lincoln and Ocean, and is consequently a little quieter. It is also less than 100m from the beach.

The hotel has a very clean, almost spartan feel, mostly painted white. This is a theme carried on into the rooms, which are fairly basic but very clean and comfortable. However, if you are looking for sumptuous luxury, this is not the place for you.

Breakfast was included in the room rate and consists of a fairly small, but in my view perfectly adequate, continental buffet. There is also a sushi restaurant in the basement, which while a little pricey, was great food. The only bar is also in the restaurant and was also expensive - 13 dollars for a gin and tonic.

Overall the hotel has a very calm, relaxed feel. The other guests are friendly, but in my experience tend to keep themselves to themselves, which suits me just fine. The guests also seemed to be a fairly mixed bunch from all over the world, and tend to be mainly in their late 20's and 30's.

For me, the best thing about the Townhouse is the staff, they are all very friendly and helpful, but manage to achieve it in a way that doesn't seem forced or over the top (sadly something all too rare in the US). Special mention has to go to the barman in the BondSt bar, who gave us a master class on saki, including a number of samples!

So would I go again? Yes, definately if I was looking for a good value hotel in a convent location.

One final recommendation - if you want great Turkish food, check out the Sultan just around the corner from the Townhouse - looks like a kebab shop, but really cheap and great food

Room Tip: Try and get a room that doesn't face Collins - you get a fair bit of traffic noise

The guest services were more than accomodating!! Yummy breakfasts and great comfortable rooms and lobby. Right next to the beach and within walking distance to shops. No complimentary water in the rooms. Nevertheless big spacious bathroom and bedroom.

Loved this hotel.
The rooms are very clean and very white which i really liked. Pretty minimal in appearance which might not be everyone's taste but it appeals to me.
Breakfast was great and a nice way to meet other people.
I had the roof terrace all to myself for an afternoon. Really comfy loungers and a nice view over south beach.
Very close to the beach.
Loved the boardwalk all along the beach for a long stroll.
Would definitely recommend Townhouse hotel.

Our bedroom was certainly minimal. It was like waking up in someone elses apartment. bed and pillows were fine. Excellent shower and good toiletries. There was a fridge and ice bucket yet no bottle opener. Plenty of artwork for sale in the hotel corridors.

The roof top bar was expensive. The route to it was quite odd with access via a service stairway (we did not see any signs to indicate another route). We had two cans of Corona larger. Each was $6.00. However, the bill was $14.40 which was explained by a 20% service charge equating to $2.40. The bar man advised that I did not need to tip as it was included in the price. That's a new one !. Noise from the roof top bar (open until 2am) and the street was easy to hear from our 4th floor room. Water marks were evident on the bedroom ceiling and that can be remided by the appropriate paint.

Breakfast was very good and included in the rate. Lots of bagels, coffee, tea, cheese, butter, good orange juice and eggs. The lady looking after that area was pleasant. She and the reception staff were the only staff members whom we found friendly. The car valets certainly were not. Bedroom staff just ignored us.

Reception staff arranged a 1½ hour extension to check out and that was appreciated.

Good location close to beach, restaurants and bars. The hotel is comfortable and service is very attentive. We felt the hotel staff cares about your experience, and wants to make sure you are satisfied and enjoying your stay. Nice notes: beach towels available at the front desk; bicycle rental available; free breakfast food in the lobby until late; and coffee was available for most of the day. I saw only one down-side: the nice rooftop is not open during the day. Overall, very good place to stay at this price range. I would stay here again.
