“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

The staff was amazing during our whole stay. They made sure that our room was ready for us even when we arrived around 6am. And they also let us stay a whole extra day because our flight was late at night. They were very helpful in giving tips and helping us if we wanted to rent a car or do some tours.
The room was excellent! A full kitchen with great appliances and also fresh coffee everyday. Perfect and extremelly clean. Bath was great also! Wifi for free in the whole building.
Location was our main interest when choosing a hotel and Jetset Franklin was the best. Near great shopping area, restaurants and the beach! Even though the weather was not great during our stay, our last 2 days we spent at the beach were great, and walking distance (1 block) from the hotel.
When we return to Miami this will definitely be our nº 1 choice. Thanks again!!

Room Tip: Make sure you choose a room that doesn't face any street since during weekends gets a bit noisy...

The decor is very amusing and the style of furniture not your average hotel room.The room was very clean, spacious and had everything you needed, including beach towels. The bathroom needed a shelf to hold toiletries. Location couldn't be better. The front desk staff very efficient and helpful. The gate to enter the hotel door is on the left side of the clothing store that takes up the main floor of the building. Only negative was the hallway noise. Very loud on our third night.

Room Tip: At the end of the hall so you don't hear the comings and goings.

Stayed here for four nights .... Our room was a very comfortable, well furnished, modern, studio room. Centrally located, one block from Ocean Drive with lots of bars and restaurants. Great value all round.

We had the Kandinsky appartment with 3 people. The room was spacious and they had a great wifi-connection. The location is 5-star! 1 block from Ocean's Drive and nearby all the great shops!
If we go back we certainly will check if these appartments are available.

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.
