“A Tranquil Spot in South Beach- perfect location, great value!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

We had a wonderful stay here - had a king suite, which supplied all that we needed to enjoy our short get-away to warmer weather. The bed and linens were comfortable, the shared balcony overlooking the pool and dining area was delightful, and the mini-fridge and extras in the room made this a very pleasant place to stay. The breakfasts were made to order and tasty - the pool area was secluded and shaded, which made for a nice spot to relax when the weather was hot and the beaches were crowded and noisy. We enjoyed the fact that we could walk to so many places: there's a huge park across the street, the beach a few blocks away, Ocean Drive shopping and Lincoln Street pedestrian mall with tons of good restaurants and shops ( lots of outdoor dining) a short distance away. Most importantly, the service was welcoming, responsive and very professional, from the front desk managers to the service staff. SoBeYou offers very good value for its location, although we were much happier with our king suite than we would have been if we'd stayed in the queen-sized room where we were on the first night. Not a new hotel with fancy amenities, but a smaller, historic accommodation, with character and charm and personality. A great BandB for anyone who enjoys this kind of travel experience, as we do!

Room Tip: be sure to ask for a ground floor room if steep stairs are a problem for you -and definitely request...

stayed for 1 night in November 2012, arrived late in evening, keys and parking pass for the area were waiting for us in the post box and a nice welcome pack.

rooms were fine, large bed with super soft bed topper, individual aircon unit but we didnt have need to use it.
shower wouldnt drain, so showers had to be short.

Breakfast was special, we waited a long time before some came to see us, the coffee was the worst i or my wife have ever had in our lives, pure chicoree maybe?

the omlette thing can be desribed as an "aquired" taste - for me it was nasty, flavourless and dry. Others seemed to like it though.

i would stay again and recomme^nd it to others but suggest to skip the breakfast, apart from that all is ok.

check out staff were really nice and helpful with information.

Very cozy but noisy and limited basics in rooms. Our room was stocked with just 3 closet hangers and no drawer space. Air con was central control so too cold in room. Breakfast was great. Paid B+B price for backpacing level of accomodations. VERY DISAPOINTED

We only spend one night at SoBe You but enjoyed it very much and would return. It is situated in a residential area between Ocean Drive and Alton Road. As other reviewers have noted, the rooms are not large but are certainly adequate and comfortable. Breakfast served by the pool was very nice. We walked from SoBe You to the beach (about 10 minutes) and then along the broad, flat beach for some exercise before breakfast. A very enjoyable stay.

This wonderful little B&B has everything you could hope for. The bed was comfortable, bathroom was small but adequate, in-room safe was nice to have and the wine bottle opener was handy to have. Beautiful pool although we didn't have time to use it during the day. Breakfast on the patio by the pool was the perfect way to start the day - delicious food with good selection, variety of newspapers, friendly staff went above and beyond. Lina gave us helpful tips for how to spend the day. Perfect location,, very central, parked our car all day and night for $2 and walked everywhere. Have dinner on West Ave, much better food and prices. If we're in Miami Beach again, we'll definitely stay at SoBe You again!

In Miami to be located at walking distance from Ocean Drive, to be in a peace place, with a natural and warm atmposphere. rooms not huge but clean, comfortable. Breakfast cooked at the moment. Easy parking with the pass. If we will be back in Miami we will not look for something else.

This was the last stop on our 4 week tour of the USA. South beach was incredibly busy due to NFL matches that weekend and it was lovely to leave the manic ocean drive to return to the B&B. the staff were lovely and very helpful as we're the breakfasts. The pool was big enough to be a very welcome way to cool off after the 80 degree heat. It was a bit pricey for the size of the room, but the peace was worth it.
