I stayed at Villa Italia Hotel for a week, and I have to say that it has really been a pleasant surprise: rooms were quite big, with very comfortable beds, with an excellent housekeeping service. It is a very private structure, the exact opposite of those opulent and anonymous hotels of 1,000+ rooms you find at the end of Ocean Drive (15-25th street).

The position is excellent: next to 5th street, only a couple of minutes from Ocean Drive and the beach itself. It is also, in my opinion, much quieter at night than other fancy zones north of 5th.

Special mention to the staff, that is what really makes the difference: extremely kind and helpful for any request, from advice on car rental to hardware shops for adapters, to directions for visiting the Everglades Park, etc.
Really, Michael and the others have always been willing to give us a hand.

Wi-Fi is included and the continental breakfast was simple but in my opinion complete (fruit, donuts, hot beverages, cereals, juice.. but - especially for Italians - do NOT expect white-gloves service with 200 varieties of biscuits and brioches - this is not what "continental breakfast means!!).

Recommended for sure!

We stayed at Villa Italia for one night in early January. There is one not-so-obvious parking spot for loading and unloading, but your choices for parking are street parking for $1.25/hour or valet parking for $25/day. The front desk staff was helpful and provided information about attractions and getting around Miami Beach without us even asking.
The room was very nicely finished/decorated. Your hotel key card goes in a slot on teh wall to make the power/cable come on in the room, which I thought was a clever little feature.
Wi-fi worked well. My only small complaint, which I read in some other reviews was that I woke up a couple of times hearing the outer door slam. Other than that, this hotel was conveniently located, clean with updated furnishings/fixtures, and reasonably priced for the area.

Room Tip: Possibly asking for a room away from the building entrance would help with noise.

The room was extremely nice, big, modern and clean. Staff was very helpful especially the front desk manager, he was very helpful and gave great recommendations. Very worth the stay and would stay again.

Room Tip: would choose a room towards the back, the walls are a bit thin but in general we had no problems as...

This little hotel is in a great location, just a couple blocks from all the action. Because its tucked away it was very quiet. The room was AMAZING. Very modern and clean. The bed was SUPER comfy too. I felt like I was sleeping on a cloud. The staff was extremely friendly and eager to help with anything. I would stay here the next time I visit South Beach.
