The rooms in Richmond suites look much better on the pictures than in reality. They are worn and wedged into a building in the back yard with no window view. Definitely not worth the money. In addition, forced to pay extra for sunbeds that you do not need or request. Poor reception out of a female receptionist.

It is an older apartment complex managed by the Richmond Hotel. The room was about what we expected. It was not great but good for the price and date. The spa and pool at the Richmond Hotel is nice but is about 2 blocks away. The room is large with a kitchen. The quality of the room is vintage 1970...

Hello travelers, I hope this can provide some assistance in choosing your Miami accommodations. This review is for the Richmond Studios which is a few blocks away from the Richmond hotel, it's the same owners just different properties.

I did not enjoy my experience at the studios, I ended up switching to the hotel itself. It felt totally exposed through front and back, the fan was too loud to sleep and constant stream of light coming in from the front. I got murdered by mosquitos as the place felt damp at all times, and the wifi did not...

This converted block of apartments belong to the Richmond hotel across the road on the beach. You will need to check in at the Richmond hotel and then drag your bags over to the apartments. Same when you leave. The security of the building is not up to scratch in my opinion. The back door looks very insecure. In addition...

Ok studio, modest bathroom, big and very comfortable bed, but the kitchen was very old and dirty. Very nice staff! For 1-2 night it's ok. The location it perfect! Very close to all the attractions and the beach.

It is in a overall good location and in walking distance to shops and restaurants. The rooms themselves could be a little better. TV was out dated and room was dull. No pictures hanging etc. I was there during a peak weekend (Art Basel/Art Walk), so we paid more than it is really worth a night. A plus, valet was...

Having booked this apartment online through an agent website (booking.com) I was expecting a fully equipped studio with a flatscreen, some carpets, some pictures on the walls and so on. What I got when I arrived was a studio, but the furnishing was minimal. There was a bed, but only one chair, a very old and small TV, two small...
