“Good place to sleep”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2011

My friend and I stayed here from Nov. 19th to Nov. 21st. We stayed in room 3 which is the studio apartment. It has a full kitchen, equpped with a stove, standard sized fridge, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker as well as dishes and pots you can use. There is a dining table with 4 chairs, a closet, a bathroom with a shower, and a bedroom with a flat screen and two queen sized beds. Romero at the front desk was very helpful. He brought an iron and ironing board to us when requested and promptly put up the shade in the bedroom which had fallen due to the chain being off track.
Pros: the location makes for a peaceful night's sleep.
It is close to the 14th street entrance to the beach.
You feel very secure with the locked gates only guests have access to.
Housekeeping is very trustworthy as my friend left her ipad on the bed and it was still there after the room was cleaned.

Cons: the apartment is a sterile white and in need of some minor renovations.
The shower is VERY small. I am a size 14 and for me it seemed a bit claustrophobic. If you are bigger than me, your body will be touching the shower curtain.
The shower curtain needs to be replaced.
There is no cabinet/shelving for toiletries. While I know this is a studio apartment, this is something that can be added.

All in all we had a good time. I would pay a little extra next time for one of the upgraded rooms.

There is no parking available and the meter is $1.75 an hour except between the hours of 3am and 9am, 7 days a week. If you have a car, I'd advise you to do your research to pay for the cheapest parking available in the area.

Hotel was lovely, not your typical layout more like little apartment blocks, room was large, very modern and very clean. Cleaned every day we were there (6 days), free breakfast at sister hotel which was a two minute walk down the road. Great location, five mins from the beach and Ocean Drive. Free internet Wifi and free computer use with Internet in reception. Secure gates, terrace area for drinking and chilling.

Hello and thank you for taking the time and let us know your opinion.
Our Suites with kitchenettes are really good options for our guests specially if you are staying for a longer period. It is a pleasure to know that you had a great week and enjoyed the comfort of our spacious suites.
Hopefully we’ll see you soon, we are planning a renovation for the patio area… Hopefully you get to stop by and enjoy it.

I arrived at the hotel a bit late after a delayed flight. The girl in the office was very friendly and I was able to check in without a problem. We got in the room (#14) it was on the first floor in the back so it was really quiet which was good. We walk in and I forgot that I had reserved a suite so I was expecting to walk into a normal room that looked like a bedroom... Instead I walk into a living room with a flat screen T.V, a couch and dining room table. My husband and I were blown away at how big the room was it really was a 1 bedroom apt! We had a huge bathroom and in the bedroom was another big flat screen T.V and we had a kitchenette (with plates, glasses. and silverware!)

Of course their was one drawback...This was our first time in Miami and thankfullly everything we needed was in walking distance.. The front office is more on office side rather than a lobby so they did not have enough information for out of towners. I was hoping to see more brochures or something to help us decide on what to do while we were there. Eventually we made it to the Welcome Center on Ocean which we got everything we needed. Other than that I was very impressed and would definitely come back again. The room was clean and quiet what more could you ask for! It was also a great place to come back to after a long day of tourist activity for relaxation!

Hi Blaqueice10473;
First of all thank you so much for this wonderful review; we are really glad that you liked our new rooms.
As you may noticed the office hasn't been renovated yet, but as soon as we finish we will offer some other service like breakfast, because of the lack of space we are not able to have many brochures for the guests but our Front Desk agents are here to help and inform you with all the activities that our guests can do.

We hope to see you again!!

Our recent two night stay began with an easy check-in and help to our spotless, recently renovated room complete with micro, fridge and flat screen. Roomy walk-in shower with Apothecary soaps and shampoo. Two queen beds, firm and covered with crisp white linens provided a good night's sleep after a day on the beach which is a very short, one block walk away.
Valet parking provided for 20$/day. They provided your car anytime you need it for no extra $.
Great food on Espanola Way, one block away. We enjoyed tapas and cold San Mig beer and delightful riojas at Tapas e Tientos and a filling Italian dinner at Hosteria Romana, run by a friendly group of dedicated Napleotani cooks and wait staff. Outside tables complete the experience on one of Miami's most picturesque streets. Tiramisu and excellent espresso at Segafredo.
However, the best discovery of our stay was the Charlotte Bakery on Washington Ave where we enjoyed authentic Argentinian, Venezuelan and Columbian breakfast food. The meat and cheese filled empanadas from the various cultures washed down by the BEST caffe con leche was fantastic. They also have an extensive cake and cookie section and sell other imported goods from Latin America..great staff, very friendly.
Bottom line...Riviere Hotel= Great Experience at a Great Price!

Room Tip: According to the GM, renovations will include a new morning breakfast room.
