“Very nice & cosy apart hotel”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

We stayed in Jetset Franklin during our honeymoon and a very nice experience. Jetset is very close to Ocean Drive/ center of Miami Beach.
The room was very clean. Decortaion is very modern/ colorful.
People working in Jetset were also very helpful & nice. They left a champagne to our room to celebrate us.

We only had one night before boarding a Cruise. We are so pleased we stayed here as it was quiet and very convenient to all the action! It was very modern with kitchen amenities. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: Our room was past the lifts which was away from any noise. We were roadside but with the airconditi...

We stayed here a few weeks ago and had a great time. The location is perfect; as close to the beach as you can get. Our room was very clean and the people who worked here were super friendly. Great place to stay!

We spent there three nights. The apartments have everything, they are modern, clean, and beautiful. They have everything you need to make your stay comfortable -beach towels, wonderful kitchen, nice bathroom, etc. The staff is very kind and helpful. The location, on Collins Ave, is great. We rented a car and had a garage for free only one block from the apartment. Besides, when you arrive and leave you can stop at the apartment`s door with your car for two hours. I had been many times in Miami, in different hotels, but this has been our best time regarding where we stopped. The price is very reasonable. I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: We took two apartments, one for me and my husband and another or my daughter and both were great. Ou...

This is an excellent choice for anyone wanting to be close to the action but enjoy an unusual (but in my opinion superb) hotel that gives all the comfort of an apartment: the rooms are located on the second and third floor of a building, which houses the Replay store on the ground floor. You need to call reception from the street, and then take the lift to the second floor, where were met with Carey and Elli, who had already responded extremely quickly by email to all questions we had, and who gave us a really friendly welcome.

Our room was on the third floor, and living in Belgium it was fun to be given the Magritte room (named after the famous surrealist painter Rene Magritte). It was able to accommodate 4 people, so with 2 it felt very spacious. We really appreciated the clean loft-styledesign (some of the reviews complain that it is "cold" but we thought it was very smart, minimalist and excellently laid out, with a full fridge/freezer, cooker and dishwasher), all felt brand new and had a very and spacious bathroom. The room really felt as if one could very comfortably stay there a week, as there was ample storage space and a lot of thought had obviously gone into the design of the room. 4 beach towels were provided free of charge.

The location is perfect, one block from Ocean Drive but no outside noise was heard in our room, so the best of both.

Finally, having a 22.30 flight we asked for a late check-out and was expecting that we would be lucky to get a 14.00 check-out so was extremely happy to be told that we could keep the room until 18 or 19, and just leave the room keys I the room when we left. Truly excellent service!

Can only recommend this wholeheartedly and look forward to returning soon again!

Room Tip: The Magritte room is at the back of the building and therefore faces very little noise from Collins...

Stayed there for WrestleMania 28 (1st April 12). Very nice apartment, modern, nice staff.

1 street away from Ocean Drive, very busy area and obviously loud at night but other than that brilliant and would stay there again.

spent 3 nights here, location was perfect for everything, we had a room sold as being for 2-4 people, it was big enough for us...it would be very cosy if there were 4 of us!
The place was clean, staff helpful and free internet.
Only issue was the soundproofing, we were woken at 4am and 5am fri and sat night by the people upstairs coming in - loud foodsteps, voices etc also we were right above the shop and its very loud music, so even if we wanted to nap mid afternoon - without big ear plugs it wouldnt be possible!
overall, dont think we would be rushing back but it was a good price in a great location for the weekend!

Noise control in South Beach, dochas, is a gargantuan task. 'The night is young' is a mantra that best illustrates the comings and goings of many locals and visitors alike. We do our best to ensure that our building stays as quiet as possible and that all guests are able to relax accordingly. The case cannot be said for all noise and, whether it is residual or not, it is simply impossible to ensure a perfectly quiet atmosphere in a party city.

Best,
