I loved the location, right across the seashore, I loved the Art Deco building (classy, but totally remodelated in the inside). Small, cozy, affordable, comfortable, clean... and the frost in the cake was the people in charge of the Front Desk wether employees or the hotel`s owner himself, were always displaying the nicest attitude and service. I just looooved it!!!!

Room Tip: The ones downstairs might be not that quiet due to the circulation of the passangers on their way to...

After booking this hotel based on an acquaintances recommendation we were OVERWHELMINGLY surprised. We were told this was a clean, quaint hotel at the end of ocean dr. He highly recommended it. From the moment we were dropped off at the hotel (of course nervous after booking it online for an extremely reasonable rate) we were happy. Then we were greeted by rosita with a huge smile on her face and such a pleasant and friendly demeanor we felt so at home. Our room was small but exactly what we needed! Clean and comfortable.....what an AMAZING LOCATION...right across the street from the beach ....walk north on ocean dr and all the shops, restaurants, bars...behind us access to a bus on Washington Ave. .25 cents to go up to lincoln ave.....WOW! The staff assisted us with all of our needs and requests for things to do and places to see. The other great and friendly staff was a sweet man.....we didn't realize until we were getting a cab to leave and asking him how we could let the owner know how fabulous everything was that HE WAS THE OWNER......we were treated like royalty....I guess others treat you how you treat them!!!! I WOULD RECOMMEND this hotel to ANYONE that has respect for an awesome, clean and quaint place to stay on south beach....also great fresh continental breakfast every morning and VERY friendly and sweet night staff!

Room Tip: we had the queen bed EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE! Also offer king bed for more from what I understand. 1...

One of the things I like about The Century Hotel is its location. It's still in the heart of South Beach but off to the side and away from the "madness". You can quickly get to all the activities South Beach is known for but then return "home" to solitude so to speak.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Guests are always greeted with a "hello", "good morning" or "good evening". Housekeeping was very efficient and always ready to give us extra towels whenever needed. The rooms are standard, clean and the beds are great for sleeping. It's a no frills hotel but for us, perfect. We just needed a place to sleep and clean up. Lol.

Great location and close to everything(walking distance really), inexpensive rooms and a colorful lobby. Decorated in the Memphis style made famous in the 90's in Miami. Lots of bright colors and quirky shapes.

I will be back.

Room Tip: If you're going for the Winter Music Conference/Ultra Music Festival book the moment you get the...

After staying at your quaint hotel I would like to say
Thank you for your hospitality and assisting in returning my watch safe/sound to me the rightful owner. I have stayed at many hotels at the beach but none can compare to yours. I am very happy to have stayed at your lovely hotel and plan to come again in the near future.
Sincerely,
Lesley M.
Forever in debt to Century!

Room Tip: The showers are quite small!

cool hotel with a retro theme - nice rooms - lovely staff- someone above our room was having a party and once it got to 10 o clock we complained to the lady on reception and she sorted it out straight away. The wifi was useless. It was a bit noisy but just due to the city location. nice breakfast included. After failing to fathom the quarter machines- we used the valet service. $25 extra for parking. close to the beach. close to the airport- we used it for our last night.

Stayed here after reading other reviews. Stayed 3 nights in Jan 12. Sort of clean room cheap reno done. Air con did not work. No wifi in rooms and the wifi in hotel dropped out all the time. Not bad or price but think you could find better for just spending a little more.

Room Tip: check air con works.
