old, dirty, loud, across from a massive construction site and also with construction taking place on their pool. Staff was very accommodating but the guests were mosly loud, drunk europeans. the temperature control panel fell off in my hand when i tried to turn down the extremely strong cold air. everything was worn. there is only one *very* slow elevator for all six floors.

I love this hotel! A fantastic location, great price, and fun hotel.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The decor is great. I can't speak highly enough about the location, it is right in the middle of everything. The perfect setting for a romantic evening or for families. It caters to everyone.

The Hotel is great!...It is a Boutique Hotel within an Art Deco Building. The lobby and common area's are furnished with pleasant inviting decor, the Restaurant and Bar has both indoor and outdoor seating.The food is VERY VERY GOOD. The staff at the Hotel are friendly and helpful. They are willing to help with directions and can suggest many different ways to enjoy your stay.shopping, site seeing or just hanging out at the Beach...which is what we came for..The beach is less then a block away, and the Pool has been newly renovated, for those who want to just enjoy the sun,,without surf. Hotel management is very attentive to your needs, The rooms are Clean, and just right for a stay in South beach. The Concierge "Charlie" is simply Awesome. Luke and his staff make the Stay at Red Wonderful...and we are coming back next year!

Room Tip: Room 702 has a partial Ocean view...however the WIFI does not work very well

LOVED THIS PLACE. It's a true hidden gem. The staff was so friendly.The rooms and lobby were recently renovated to make this boutique hotel look very chic without the typical south beach attitude and price. It was extremely affordable. It's located just south of 41st street making it an easy access from the airport or anywhere off miami beach. And the breakfast was great!! Highly recommend!!

What a great surprise! This boutique hotel is in a great location, is super cool and chic, friendly staff and is affordable!

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting South Beach. The decor is modern: white backdrop with splashes of red. Cool paintings in the rooms and most importantly, the rooms are SUPER CLEAN with new comfortable beds and attention to details. (like black out shades on the windows, deluxe coffee maker, alarm clocks that glow a soft red color, and FULL SIZE hairdryers.)

The public areas are a destination in themselves. The lobby is beautiful/cool. A great place to begin your photo taking! The bar is...well, I'll say it again, COOL! (smiling bartender waiting to greet you!-) ...and the pool is everything you'd expect from a South Beach Hotel plus a brand new pool deck!

Can't wait to go back to South Beach and hang at Red!

As I find myself in a laundry mat at 11pm at night surrounded by my entire business wardrobe I can't help but wish all of you who are considering this adventure good luck. The hotel is quaint as any old boutique hotel would be. The downfall of this choice was that I was placed on a smoking floor and in a smoking room. Years of living it up permeated my clothes, my luggage, and my spirit. Despite the hotels best too clean my room to neutralize the smoke scented carpet all efforts where in vain since the vents on the entire floor had not been cleaned in years. The 1/2 inch layers of dust was a bit of a give away. On a lighter note, the valet staff was very nice and accommodating. If location, location, location is your thing this works just plan on bringing a bottle of febreeze and pray that you stand down wind.

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for non-smoking.

I stayed at this hotel with all my girlfriends, we were celebrating one of our birthdays. I expected something entirely different, you know, small hotel, little amenities, etc...but what we got far exceeded our expectations!. We arrived to be nicely greeted by the bellmen, two of them, who promptly took our bags and our car(s) keys and welcomed us to the hotel. Check-in was a breeze and we were in no time given 2 poolside cabanas. Unfortunately the pool was going through renovations, but we were told it would be ready two days later (we were only staying for 2 nights anyway). The GM was walking through the lobby and he welcomed us too. We felt immediately at home and knew we would have a good night. We changed and went out to the lobby restaurant for cocktails. The bartender had a very nice pour, so we stayed at the bar for longer than we expected, drinking wine and taking it all in. The lobby has a beautiful modern decor, red and white, it was clean and the floors were shiny, we immediately started taking pictures because it was the perfect background.Staff was friendly, professional and relaxed, unlike other South Beach hotels we've stayed at that are a bit stuffy.
The rooms were lovely! Decorated in a modern baroque style, the rooms are clean and comfortable. There were two huge paintings that looked amazing. The beds brought everything together, so comfortable I couldn't get out of bed the next day. At Red hotel it's all about the details, the mirror in the bathroom, the telephone, the little touches are well thought and add a layer of care to the whole experience. We are planning to make this hotel our permanent South Beach destination, we can't wait to come back and enjoy a day pool-side.

Room Tip: The pool side cabanas are a quiet option. There were no people by the pool at night.
