It's what it says it is: a three starts hotel. It has a nice pool and great access to the beach. Staff is amazing and very polite. Location is also great, to two blocks from Lincoln road and between 5-6 blocks from Ocean drive. Breakfast is poor and almost always you don't have where to sit down to take breakfast.... More

Old rooms... like a lot of SoBe hotels. Floors are loud and creaky. Our view out of the window was an alley facing another hotel. You do have the pool area which is ok. You might catch a glimpse of the iguana that wonders around too... Mojito's are excellent!

I stayed here with my son for 2 nights. This is a hotel with character, in a good way! The room was of reasonable size, was reasonably quiet, and was in good condition (although the toilet area was a tight squeeze). The pool area was very nice and matched the promotional photos perfectly. The hammock garden was a pleasant surprise!... More

Worst experience of my life. The staff working at the front desk is super rude. They even kicked us out of the hotel at the time of the checkout!
