We only stayed one night which was New Years Eve but it was fantastic! Location is excellent one block from Ocean Drive. The room was just perfect. The staff were amazing and really went that extra mile for us. We look forward to staying there next time we travel to South Beach.

Stayed: December 2013, traveled as a couple

The appartement is very nice, modernly equipped. It is very clean and the team is very nice and helpful. The location is also very central, but as the iappartment is not very sound proof from street noise, it gives sometimes the impression to sleep in the street.

Stayed here as a group of 5 20somethings for a ten day beach holiday culminating with Ultra Music Festival.

The apartment is in the perfect location, 2 minutes walk from the beach & 7Eleven, with a Liqor Store and pleanty of food options right outside! An easssy taxi ride into down town for the American Airlines arena (~ $25 door to door)

One issue we had was that you aren't allowed visitors after 11 o'clock, fine if you're travelling as a couple or family, but if you're on the pull this can be problematic if you want to take people back to your place (it was for us.)

Its no smoking in the rooms, but at the end of each corridor the fire escape is fine as a smoking area, as someone from the UK with the smoking ban, this was to be expected and wasn't a problem for us!

Would stay again for sure.

I am writting this at 5am-i am still not asleep due to the late night partiers outside. I fear that with another 2 nights left, i will be leaving this placed frazzled and sleep deprived. Also, the floors are laminate so you can also hear the late commers walking back, chatting, laughing and carrying on as they return to their rooms next door/down the hall-carpet at least in the corridors would be useful. Also, fridge and AC are very loud. Otherwise, location is good for access to south beach. Supermarket & Walgreens all walking distance. Rooms are clean but beds are small. Bring on the sleep...please

Location is excellent while room is very quiet and fully equipped for a lengthy stay.
One block from Ocean Drive and down the street from Equinox fitness club gave me no excuses not to workout while on vacation. The room was just perfect.
We look forward to staying there next time we travel to South Beach.

Spent 8 nights. We are a mid30s couple.
Great location in South Beach. Yes, sometimes it can be somewhat noisy at night (as on 4th of July) but not as noisy as on Ocean Drive. If you want a quiet spot, well South Beach is not for you in the first place. You won't hear the other rooms. it is a small hotel, less than 20 rooms. The location is perfect, less than 75m from the beach. Very close to restaurants and bars. We walked everywhere, no cab. In close proximity to a diving shop (100m) and Lincorn Road (approx 1km)

The room were extremely well maintained, cleaned daily, including the floor being mopped. Fully equipped kitchen (minus wine glasses).

Outstanding concierge service, including laundry.
High speed wifi, good size room, outstanding value

One night, we had some issue with the AC. They went above and beyond to get it fixed, even if it was a Sunday.


Will go back for sure!
