We have stayed here several times and it has never disappointed . Love the music and bar next door , just adds to the fun . Staff is very friendly too . It is a bit loud at night so if you have little ones they would need to be good sleepers . Nice central location ez walk to beach

OK, first of all, the location of this place is amazing. Right on 5th Ave. Great for people watching, fantastic patio. As other reviews have mentioned, if you want it quiet this is not the place for you. But if late night music doesn't bother you, and you enjoy people watching from your patio- this place is perfect.

Sorry, but I don´t remember anything like that happening at our hotel. My friends came? Are you sure you were at Posada Freud and not another hotel? And when was this? I am very interested in your answer so I can understand this better. Waiting to hear back, thank you! Christine More

“If you like to be on second floor with good view of the famous 5th Ave, select Suite #5 or 6 . The hotel next door does play live music until about midnight-1AM, if you like to be up late, this place is great for you. If you need to be in bed early and have it quiet, then maybe this isn't the place for you. But I will say, the music is good ! One of the best places to hear live music, so you will always be entertained in your room!”
