The hotel is in a great location to walk to the beach
It has very big and clean outdoor swimming pool on the top floor. The service is very good and there are a lot of great hotels near by to eat at. It is a very good hotel for family's to enjoy their summer at. It has Sub zero refrigerator and mile cook top.

So this hotel/condo was exceptional. In terms of the room. The room had a cockroach on the balcony but thats about it everything else was okay and for a good price for me at 377 per night this was near all the shops restaurants etc... But the check in in was a little rusty they said they could not find our reservation so we waited for about an hour for them to reenter it. And since there was only one person at the desk it was vey long and caused a big delay

Thank you for your recent visit and for sharing your feedback!

I am delighted to read that we met your expectations on our hotel product and location, however, saddened to hear about your challenges that you faced during your arrival. Our front desk team is consistently recognized by our guests for their exceptional service. Would you be kind enough to reach out to me at jimmy@thinkproperties.com so that I can get further clarification as we are always striving to improve our level of service?

I hope to speak with you soon so that we can rectify the cause in our reservation system.

I would like to start my review by giving thanks to the staff at the front desk specially to Jessica, Alex and Rick as well as the amazing house keeping crew and in particular Edison. They ALL work very hard in making your stay at the hotel the most enjoyable.
We were there between July 13 and the 27th with our two year old son and I cannot say enough about the room we stayed and the great location of this hotel.
The room is huge and has all you need. If you need more plates, cups or what ever it is, you just need to let front desk and house keeping will be over with your request. Like I did you can prepare any meal you want in this kitchen. There is a Publix close by (5 minutes by car), a Walgreens two blocks away or you can take the local bus ($0.25) and get off at Collins and 13th and pick up your grocery or take out at the Art Deco Supermarket (it is open from 7am to midnight). This Walgreens house a great selection of all kinds of items from liquor to souvenirs to food items. Two things I really loved picking up in the morning were the coffee late (large for $1.95) and their fresh pastries and fresh empanadas ($1.99).
If you are early enough you might be invited with a Cuban coffee specially prepared by their staff (delicious).
Most days we went to beach and we had no issues finding an umbrella and chairs. The beach staff is super nice and they work very hard in bringing you food and drinks they prepare right there on the beach.
There is plenty of parking across the street from the hotel if you do not want to do valet parking. Parking on the street is free between 3am and 9am. We did this many times with no issues.
Across the hotel there is a public library so you might want to take advantage of the free internet.
A nice place to eat out on Lincoln Rd is Pizza Rustica that also offers free delivery.
Shopping wise I would recommend Aventura Mall (take the 121 or the S bus) and if on the way back you would like to try the South American cuisine get off at Collins and 79 where you can find El Rey del Chivito and Buenos Aires Bakery.
There is also Merrick Village that you can reach by taking the bus to the train station to Douglas where you get off and hop on the free troley that will drop you right accross from the plaza. On Tuesdays around 10 Children Pottery Barn has special activities for the little ones like for example meeting the Cat in the Hat (it is all an event).
By train you can also go to Dadeland Mall and for that you need to get of at Dadeland South stop.
A few things I would recommend is to pack light because the rooms are equipped with washer and dryer. Also don't mind about going for the free breakfast. It is not worth your time (it is either a spoon of artificial eggs with a toast or pancakes with coffee or juice).
If you need to rent a car there is Avis two block away and if they do not have a car available they can call around to get you one. The staff is very nice there.
To come and go from the airport you can take the local bus that for 2.50 or so will give you a comfortable ride.
Hope that your trip to South Beach and stay at Boulan will be as great as ours was. We cannot wait to be back in South Beach for the fifth time.
Hasta la proxima vez!!

Visited with a group of friends and needed a space that was close to South Beach night life and the Boulan was perfect. Not only was it in a great location the rooms/condos were awesome! Very clean and spacious. Nice rooftop. Pictures online are often deceiving but the pictures provided for the Boulan are accurate. The entire vibe of the hotel is very artistic and fun. Perfect for groups, couples and families. The hotel is on collins ave which is directly across the street from the beach. The front desk was very helpful with everything we needed. Next time I'm in Miami I'll be staying here for sure.

We stayed on the pent house level, with quick access to the rooftop pool, and a terrace, and balcony. The hotel had a very artistic vibe, with nice interior.

This is located on collins avenue, but on the other side of the beach, where as the hotels on the beach side are attached to the beach, we must cross the road to get to the beach. Still, good location. Easy walk to the beach and lincoln rd mall.

The building is not high, but you do get a little view of the miami beach from the room.
I was only there to sleep really, so didn't get to use the pool or terrace.

Spacious, clean, white, modern room. huge bathroom, with two entrances. No AC in the hallways at all (so hot), but once you enter your room you have all the AC you want.

The lights turned on and off on its own, and a bag fell on the floor on its own. At this point we got scared and thought our room was haunted. While we said this the tv went black and said 'no signal'. We were freaked out the whole night, but nothing bad or crazy happened.
Other than that, good hotel.

My family of 5 really enjoyed our stay at Boulan South Beach. The décor was amazing and it was very clean. Definitely recommend to Valet your car because it is worth it. Since the city charges per hour it was convenient to Valet. The short walk to where the beach chairs and umbrellas were is well worth it. Everyone at the front desk was equally helpful. Since they are private owned condos I wasn't sure of the attention we would get for example making the beds stocking towels but the housekeeping was fantastic! We would love to stay here again!

Room Tip: We had the 2 bedroom with a part ocean view which was lovely!
