“Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

Just came back from Miami Beach Florida. Jet Set Franklin was my home away frome home for 2 weeks. Everything was great. Brand new studio apartment with superb service. Very clean, modern and the best location on South Beach. And the most important thins is people who work there! Girls, HELLO to all of you. You are the best! :) I definetly rerommend this accomodation on South Beach and will come back soon.

The Jetset Franklin was fantastic in every way. The rooms are spotless and quite spacious. The decore is very modern and both our room and the room our children (18-23 years old) stayed in were terrific. You are close to shops (which my wife loved) and the beach and clubs which was great for our children. The ladies who run the hotel are very accommodating and happy to attend to your needs. Our late arrival (11.15pm) was no problem and they also organised taxis for us to our next destination. We heard about the noise in Miami Beach prior to coming but this was not an issue as the hotel only takes a small number of guests and does not have it's own club. If you want to "club", you are only two minutes from all the clubs on Ocean Drive. It would be hard to find anything better!

Room Tip: Third floor rooms are further away from any noise coming from the street.

Nothing to do with the previous Franklin Hotel. The Jet Set Franklin apartments has become a super cool place to stay in Miami, killer location with superb quality and excellent staff. I definitively recommend.

This was the worse hotel I've ever stayed at in Miami. The bathroom was filthy, the receptionist was rude, and there were waterbugs in the room. Complaints to the front desk went unanswered. There were tons of people hanging around the hotel in the front, not too friendly looking either.

I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. I wouldn't let my dog stay here. It wasn't the type of place I looked forward to heading back to at the end of a long day.

We arrived on a Wednesday morning for a four night stay.
On first appearances from the outside the hotel seemed as described on the Expedia website except the bedroom was smelly, fairly dirty and urgently needed updating.
The hotel receptionist insisted all the cost of our stay paid up front before we were handed the keys to the room.
The following evening the hotel became increasingly sinister with odd, threatening looking characters in the bar area and scantily clad young girls hanging around. We then realized it was a pick up place and the girls were using the bedrooms on the ground floor to entertain their clients.
Friday night was even more frightening. The reception and bar area were not the place to sit around. We remained locked inside our room too scared to venture outside. The receptionist just shrugged when I complained about it all the following morning.
I demanded and received a full refund from Expedia who had advertised and who had sold me the stay in the hotel. That however was the summer of 2003. Unbelievably despite our complaints the company continues to advertise the hotel on their website which has received bottom marks in every category for service, condition, cleanliness and comfort from other Expedia travellers.
