“Wonderful stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

Villa Italia is the right place in Miami Beach to stay. Great location, wonderful staff and lovely rooms. The area is quiet yet close to everything. Karl was exremely helpfull and knowledgable about the area. We will definitely stay at the Villa Italia any time we return to the area.

this is a very well placed quiet 4 stars hotel with perfect service. everybody was nice and helpfull.
it is true that the breakfast is a little short, the hotel would also need to use porcelain plates and metal spoons and knife, but it is nice to have the breakfast included.
beach and good restaurants within a walking distance.
Thank you for everything and best regards to the staff.

We just came back from an outstanding stay at the Villa Italia Hotel. The front desk manager Carl is one of the best in the industry. He is extremely knowledgeble on the south beach area, where to go, what to do and when. This hotel is perfect for couples looking for a quiet place to stay, just outside the Ocean Drive craziness, but without the noise and headaches. Party animals go elsewhere...this hotel is one best kept secret and will hopefully stay that way. Carl and his friendly staff run a first-rate hotel operation - all for an excellent value. Rooms are very clean, well stocked and come with a 42in Samsung TV's and great channel line-up. Hotel is in a great location, safe, just south of the Ocean Drive area, but within easy walking distance of everything, including the Miami Inlet/Harbor area, where you can go watch the cruise ships head out on the weekends.

For couples, must do's are Happy Hour or dinner at Smith & Wollensky's, Joe's Stonecrab (A must do) and a walk down to Monty's for Hap Hour, overlooking the Miami Yachtclub. We saw some of the largest yacht's in the world, including the Aviva (#80 on the top 100 largest yacht's!).

They serve a very nice lite breakfast every morning. outdoor tables. All rooms and front gate have easy-swipe key cards for easy entrance. We stayed in the hotel, room was a bit smaller than I expected, but no biggie at all. I am sure the house is even better!

Great place to stay for quiet couples looking to enjoy SoBe!

Room Tip: Our room was on the West side of the hotel and was very quiet, although I think all of the rooms ap...

We enjoyed the stay very much. The people at the front desk were very helpful in sorting out car parking for us after we had checked out and provided a discounted voucher for the big, open top bus tours. The room was really large, modern and very clean. The location was just a short walk from the main hub of South Beach, so "close to all the action" but without all the noise!

There was so much choice for SoBe accommodation but Villa Italia ticked a few boxes for us based upon previous Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed, we had a great weekend.

Ideal location SoFi (South of Fifth) mean it was quieter than being in the middle of the action yet only 5 mins walk to Ocean Drive. The SoBe bus stopped right outside with a bargain 25c fare to the whole of South Beach. We stayed in the Villa, so much space with 2 beds, lounge with bed settee, full kitchen. A bargain compared to having 2 rooms for the 3 of us - couple plus a friend.

The weather was almost perfect so sitting in the courtyard for breakfast as a great start to the day. Staff were excellent, not only did they give advice but they were happy to look info up for us and also checked with us the next day to see if we had got what we needed. A nice touch.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms quiet, Villa worked for us with party of 3.

We enjoyed the stay very much.
The people at the desk were very helpful in organizing NBA tickets, restaurant recommendations ...
The room was really large and very clean.
The breakfast was American continental standard (a little simple, mainly the coffee).
The beach and the Art Deco district were very close and reachable by a short walk.
Only parking was pretty expensive (25$ per night for valet parking).
