Paper wall hotel. You can hear aby little sound or noise from neigbhors. The doors are non insulation - you hear every step at the corridor.. Very noisy AC. The windows in 1st floor are locked(if to open - you can get fine 100$). Windows view is to another building in 2m. Super small rooms.

Thank you for your feedback. Our rooms are small and functional. We ask guests to keep the windows closed because many like to open them and keep the air conditioning on. If I could hear every step in the corridor, I too would be disappointed, and while I have heard occasional guests when staying on property, I did not personally... More

Don't plan to stay and relax! Platform bed with the cheapest mattress. Bathroom needs to be updated. Carpet needs to be cleaned. It's half residence half hotel so they don't care about how loud they are. There is an ice machine but it's a little ice maker. Room was not cleaned daily & towels were not replenished let alone being... More

Nichole - We appreciate your feedback. Our standard is to clean rooms daily - not sure what happened in your situation, it is a very rare complaint. We replenish towels using the green program - so if re-hung we do not replace. If left on the floor we do replace. Guests in South Beach can be noisy, although having stayed... More

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean. Great location for the beach and restaurants. no parking though. We had to pay the garage next door to park for the night. Walking distance from everything

Thanks for your compliments about the friendliness and helpfulness of Tirso and his team. We're glad you found the hotel clean, and as you mentioned, walking distance to all of South Beach - no rental care needed - and if you want one for the day, we have them available ON SITE. David. More

Overall this hotel is in the perfect location. You can walk to anything you want to do in South Beach. The outside of the place is dated, but most of the SOBE hotels are older from the outside. We got a deluxe queen room, which had two queen beds and an additional room with bunk beds. We never touched the... More

The hotel was very trendy and close to the best part of Ocean Drive.The rooms were kind of small. There was a bar downstairs in the lobby, but we opted to just hit ocean drive. I would stay here again.

Pros: location, price Cons: cockroachs, lack of customer service, additional charges to my card, not to mention the entire hotel has a awkward smell i can't seem to pinpoint. Spend a little more and stay somewhere else. Being a "boutique" hotel is not excuse for the lack of cleanliness

If you are going to spend the night out, and not drink & drive it's perfect. Because the thin walls will allow you to listen everything. Definitely request a room in the second floor. The front desk people is moody.

I stayed at the Clifton in Miami before my cruise and I can't say enough horrible things about this place. It is a pure dump!! First they charged my credit card for accidentals instead of just putting a hold on my card like most hotels and charge my credit card for resort fees which it is far from being that!... More
