I stayed here from Oct 10-14 with 3 friends. The room was spacious, the décor was very trendy, and the kitchen/dining area was large and very modern. I especially liked having a full bathroom AND a powder room. The rooftop pool was clean and surrounded by plenty of lounge chairs and beds. Bonus: Walgreens + tons of restaurants within walking distance. Improvements: better lighting in the bathroom around the mirrors, housekeeping doesn't clean the floors (always very dusty).
My only issue was the free continental breakfast. The breakfast consisted of some bruised apples/oranges/bananas, mini sized croissants and danishes, butter, cream cheese, a variety of rye bread, orange juice and coffee. There was no toaster, no jams, no fresh looking fruit. And with mini sized croissants, people would grab 5 or 6 just to make a sufficient meal, which then it turn left no more for anyone else. The staff was always scrambling to get more from the kitchen, and we were left waiting at least 10 minutes for new ones (and then people would rush the tray like hungry mongrels). This didn't ruin my stay nor my perception of the Boulan, however I think it's worth mentioning so that the managers are aware. Another point to mention: depending on your purpose in SOBE, the Boulan is a good few blocks away from Ocean drive, so prepare to walk or take a cab to get deeper into south beach.
Overall, I really liked the Boulan and other guests that I chatted with seemed to really like it as well. I definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again.
