The location of this hotel is very good, just a couple of blocks back from Ocean Drive. It has a Deco style frontage with a terrace with tables for drinks etc. Inside the entrance, the reception is on the left with a bar/ food area on the right and stairs and lift in the centre. The lift is rather slow... More

Strange little hotel perfectly placed for Miami South Beach, bars & restaurants and for getting about. Very friendly staff and very clean. Despite its position on a busy street it is relatively quiet. The decor takes a little getting used to and looks very tired in places. The room air conditioning is not easy to control and must be the... More

All was as expected. The hotel staff were kind and helped us with a couple of requests, except one night shift employee who was rude and had no clue about the existence of cribs at the hotel! The hotel is kind of old but the rooms are okay. They were clean, spacious and the amenities generous and of a good... More

Overall, the rooms were pretty nice and our stay was fine. The rooms are tiny which we expected. There was no coffee/coffee maker in the room so you had to get coffee from the bar for $4.

“Put bathroom doors on both sides. Water kept coming out”
 of 5 bubbles dianaBarasi, 29 Nov 2016 | Read review
“There was a problem with the toilet backing up in my room. This was evident from the start when I found the contents from a previous occupant. I told the maid and the problem was initially sorted while I was out. However, late the following evening, it started again and I reported it to reception. They were going to use a plunger but to save my blushes from the staff, I insisted on using it to unblock things which again sorted the issue. There was a further issue just before I left but I managed to sort it. The air conditioning in the room was noisy and forceful which meant you could be sleeping in a draft. Also, the bedside lamp didn’t work. The hot/cold water control for the shower was rather problematic which seemed to work in reverse at times. This meant you weren't sure which part of the dial was going to give you hot water. ”
