“Lovely hotel, perfect location - very close to South Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

We had a beautiful clean large room with very comfy bed. The staff were extremly friendly and helpful with advice on restaurants and things to do in South Beach. You were very close to Ocean Drive, but just off it so at night when you went to bed you did not have the noise from all the bars and clubs - which was perfect!
The complimentary continental breakfast each morning was lovely! And we loved the outdoor jacuzzi pool in the afternoon - sitting with a cocktail in the sun. Would definitely choose to stay in this fantastic hotel again (and my partner and I are really fussy with where we stay)! Thankyou for a lovely holiday in Miami! Justine & Chris

Room Tip: We went for the executive king - it was massive!

Justine,

We are so pleased that you took the time to write about your recent Cadet Hotel experience. One thing is for sure we are one of the quieter hotels in our area. We hold true to charming, comfy and subtle elegance. We are glad you opted for the Junior Suite with breakfast package and that you enjoyed the food and it looks like some drinks:-) Hopefully you will be coming back sooner than later.
When you have decided on your return please do not hesitate in contacting me directing at giulia@cadethotel.com or info@cadethotel.com.

Best regards,

Giulia
Hotel Manager

At $130 a night this place wasn't a steal, but the location more than made up for it. 2 blocks from the beach, 1 block from the Lincoln Road Mall, 1 block from major bus stops to & from Miami, several blocks from nightclubs and museums. Note that as of June 2014 there is major construction being done on the opposite street corner. Not sure how much noise that produced for the rooms facing the street, but our room was 112, farthest from the construction and was perfectly quiet.
Ours was a 'cozy queen' - perfect for our honeymoon. Some details were lacking - there was no microwave or coffee maker. There was wifi, but it was on the slow side. The air conditioner had no remote - you could stand on a chair to turn it on and off, but if you wanted it adjusted you had to ask the front desk. The sheets could have been better quality / softer.
There were perks about the room as well - it was beautiful, and the bed was very comfortable. When we arrived there was a complimentary fruit tray and a rose on our desk table. Each day after room service they'd leave a little box with a few hershey kisses in it on our bed. Room service was prompt and thorough - the room was clean.
The hotel will give you beach towels, which you can ask for and return at the front desk. There is a $15 optional breakfast on a very pretty patio next to the hotel. After eating breakfast at several nearby locations, we realized it was the best bang for our buck considering the neighborhood. It was a sit-down breakfast with above-average food and a good selection - not your typical 1-star 'continential breakfast' but a real breakfast. There is also an outdoor jacuzzi (really it's just barely too small to call a pool, so they installed jets and made it a jacuzzi) but almost no one uses it, so you can have it to yourself. Downside: the jacuzzi closes at 7 pm.
Staff was very attentive, and service was personalized - the hotel is very small, so after just a few days you recognize most of the people who work there. By the end of my week there the breakfast waiter (who also worked the front desk) knew my order as well as our room number.
Overall we would definitely stay here again, and our experience was very good :)

Hussain,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your recent Cadet Hotel experience. You are 100% correct we are lucky to be in one of the most sought after areas in South Beach. We are two short blocks away from one of the best beaches in the USA. So when we get a chance meet and greet new guests and share the "It So Miami Experience" we ensure it is delivered with honest and heartfelt hospitality. We hope that you will return sooner then later. Please feel free to contact me at giulia@cadethotel.com or info@cadethotel.com.

Can't beat the location of this small and handsome boutique hotel.
The folks at the desk at check in and the waiter at breakfast were very pleasant. Fresh squeezed juice and very good quality coffee for breakfast
The rooms were nicely appointed although strangely enough you have to call downstairs to get your air on adjusted.
Again- great location

I've just returned from a stay and this hotel ticked almost all the boxes for us. It is a superbly located base from which to explore Sobe on foot and downtown Miami via the extremely frequent buses, whilst the 150 'flyer' bus from/to the airport stops yards from the door. As other reviewers noted, rooms are small but we soon adapted, even though I had quite a bit of work to do over the 10 days we were there. As the previous reviewer says, the initial impression of the room isn't helped by the curtains, which have small pockets sewn in; I actually thought these were soiled until my wife pointed out that they were intended house sprigs of lavender and rather unsightly dry residues remain in the bottom of the pockets (no dead flies in ours!). The garden is delightful - we had an excellent breakfast there on the last morning - but apply your mozzie repellent first and especially if using the jacuzzi pool area. The bar area is uninviting unless a pianist or singer is on duty but mostly we were out and about - Cuban cafes, restaurants and craft beer bars abound nearby. We did find the staff mostly politely indifferent but they proved more than willing to assist when we couldn't set the safe and appeared to mobilise the entire workforce! On the other hand they didn't seem particularly informed on the local area e.g. I wanted the nearest EasyCard outlet and was badly misdirected, unless they just don't want tourists to see what the nearest one is like! The exception though was a particularly jolly and knowledgeable night attendant, a credit to the establishment although as he went off shift at 7am access was limited! Anyway, in the internet age you can invariably find what you need and the free WiFi at Cadet was absolutely excellent even though I was handling some big files for work. Some of the fixtures and fittings are well used but everything was clean and worked perfectly. No coffee making facility but the mini-bar is an amply proportioned fridge.There is a relaxing charm about the place; the complimentary little chocolates, fruit, flowers and a bottle of sparkling wine were nice little touches.
