- Our bathroom was an insult.
- Breakfast is a joke.
- Wi-Fi is a ghost.
Our bathroom was frustratingly small and in a shabby state of disrepair. Missing grout and loose tiles were in plain sight, the sink faucet was loose and wobbly, the shower pressure was impossibly low and the water restrictor showerhead was set to EXTREME.
The hotel offers two amenities: complimentary breakfast and free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. The one and only day I got up early for breakfast I found a few cellophane wrapped pastries and an empty coffee urn. Tip: head to Abuelo's Restaurant a few blocks away for a Cuban breakfast and there are at least three Starbucks on Lincoln Road.
As for the Wi-Fi, our third floor rear room was outside the range of the network signal.
If you arrive early or check out several hours before your flight, your bags won't be held behind the front desk or any other secure area. You'll have to leave them in the lobby and hope for the best.
Bottom line: Greenview Hotel is a very well located, few frills hotel that is a little too shabby chic for this traveller. It’s inexpensive but should still try harder than it does to provide the two amenities it offers and to maintain the guest bathrooms. If creature comforts and reliable amenities in South Beach are on your wish list then refocus your search and consider doubling (at least) your hotel budget.
