The Villa Italia has 12 rooms in two buildings plus an additional villa. Our room #205 was light and airy, with large windows on two sides, but also oddly configured. There was plenty of room for an exercise mat at one end, but the desk unit on another wall was so close to the foot of the bed that we couldn't fully open the refrigerator door. A Continental breakfast is included and served on an enclosed patio at the front of the hotel. The clientele is international and the staff helpful with suggestions and reservations. A few relatively minor imperfections, however: The drapery rod on one window was only partly functional but remained un-repaired during our stay. A card in the room asks guests to hang towels that they wish to re-use, but housekeeping changed them every day anyway. The keyless entry system is a little tricky, and the front desk is unable to make change for the 25-cent-per-ride, exact-change-only local bus which stops at the front door and which they recommend. The approximately $200 per night rate for this neighborhood is a bargain, but be prepared for an additional $8.95 per night resort fee (even if you don't use the beach towels and chairs provided), $25 per night valet parking (parking is extremely expensive everywhere in South Beach), and 13% in city, county, and state taxes. That said, the Villa Italia is welcome escape from the crowds and noise of other South Beach venues.
