Spacious rooms, great location. Would have preferred daily toiletries as had to ask daily and also a better reception as had to follow instructions via a pre email. Other than that really enjoyed my stay

I recently stayed at first SoFi with another couple in a 2 bedroom apartment. THe location was great but definitely nothing fancy and a place Im not sure I would stay in again. There is no onsite parking...which is typical of south beach, but the staff had no knowledge of parking in the area...which seemed strange to me. We ended...

Very loud and Noisy as if you are sleeping on the street, Shower with half a door, uncomfortable bed, lost electricity and had no backup generator so we sweated through the AM, showering in the dark, couldn't use kitchen. Tried to get refund thru Booking.com and no compensation. Very bad experience.

After staying in comfortable hotels on our trip in Florida, this apartment seemed lacklustre and extremely minimalist. However it was the location which sold it to us and we adjusted to our surroundings, especially as we would be out most of the day and evening As I indicated, it was adequate. It was clean and fresh towels are provided daily....

Great location, nicely equipped room (had washer/dryer), and reasonably priced. Not as "full service oriented like a regular hotel, more like staying in a small apartment building. It's a few couple of blocks from the wild part of Sobe, but an easy walk.

Location: Location, location, location. That's more or less the selling point. My friend made the reservations. Reception and parking: I have to say that the woman who greeted me was absolutely lovely and gave me access to the room after I showed the confirmation. Her colleagues walked by a few times without a word. Unfortunately, she was not very knowledgeable...

We were recommended this hotel. We decided to book an apartment for three people and I wish I have never done this! This place was awful, dirty and the staff extremely unpolite. At our arrival we were told the apt was supposed to be cleaned once a day, towels changed once day and beds done. We stayed there for 4...

Positiv points: the location, the size of the apartments. Negative points: the furnitures are shiny on the first sight, but are falling apart on the second sight (one of the beds was broken, the brackets of the glass door of one of the showers were broken, various door latches were loose, and many other little things), very superficial cleaning (hairs...

Great location, easy walking to South Beach spots and great for exploring south of fifth. Short stroll to beach. Good parking arrangements made it easy to park car, because you won't need it!
