We were looking into a less expensive option for our 4th of July weekend in Miami. We came across this new boutique hotel at a great price.
The hotel is located at a great public transport spot, easy access with the Miami Beach flyer 150 from the airport at Washington/2ed ave. Most buses that will take you into Coral Gable, Coconut Grove, North Beach, Vizcaya...etc are all right around the corner. There are numerous convenient stores such as Walgreens and CVS right around the corner. There are also a few bike rental locks next to the hotel which made it easy for us to ride the bikes around the beach.
The staffs were not very friendly, they don't talk much, or greet much, mostly very focused on their own things unless you speak Spanish. Only the lady in the afternoon were friendly at a great hospitality standard.
The rooms we were given has a kitchen with great modern and clean decors. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were a bit... small and... not fluffy. The AC worked great for us, especially in the 90% humidity and triple digit weather. The bathroom although small with not much space to place toiletries but it served its purpose.
Everything was great until we tried to go to bed. The walls are paper thin, you can hear next door's conversation like they are in the same house. The hotel has great sound barriers for noises from the outside but absolutely nothing for your next door neighbor. Being in Miami Beach, you get party people coming back from 12am-7am, singing talking loudly or TV noises even with our earplugs it was dreadful.
One thing my wife and I can not tolerate are other people's inconsideration and a place that doesn't have much prevention in place. It is a shame that we will not be back and would not recommend this wonderful hotel with great potentials for anyone who wish to have a peaceful night. If you just need a place to crash after you party till dawn, this is the place for you.
