Stayed here one night prior to a cruise. Great hotel right in the heart of it all. Very friendly staff from the moment we got there made us feel like home. Room was very stylish and comfortable, and loved the shower! I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely be back.

I spent one night in South Beach for a pre- cruise girls weekend. We booked 2 rooms on Booking.com for a steal. I was a little worried because it was so cheap but reviews were good so we booked. I couldn't have been happier with our stay. The Impala is an easy walk to the beach and very centrally located... More

I had a wonderful experience . The staff was courteous . There was this Arab gentleman at the front desk who guide and help me get my car on time. Wish I knew his name to thank him. Highly recommended since it's small, quiet , clean and with good service. Also good price and close to the beach. Will definitely... More

This is a small updated older hotel with a great location and a hospitable staff. The taxi ride from the Miami airport was a flat fee of 35 US dollars and took roughly 40 minutes in heavy Friday evening traffic. We were welcomed by a soft spoken gentleman who had us in our room in just a few minutes. One... More

Please note this is the one and only negative review I have left on trip advisor. I prefer to give positive feedback and just ignore the very rare negative experiences. I just feel that our experience may be avoided by others. This was our last nights stay in the states after an incredible 4 weeks, meeting the most amazing people... More

Great hotel, nice staff, and near to beach and Ocean Drive. Good in room accessibility for wheelchair, but you will have to ask about shower chair. Skip the breakfest, you can have better in other place.

This was my first trip to south beach, so I can't compare this hotel to others in the area, but the stay was pleasant for the price. The staff, most notably Jemay at the front desk was extremely helpful and very friendly during my 2 day stay. The hotel appears to have nice tile flooring throughout including my room. The... More
