“Disappointed”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

I am somewhat surprised by all the excellent/5-star reviews on this site about this hotel. There are undoubtedly several good things going for it (see below), but ultimately the hotel fails in two key aspects:
(1) it was extremely noisy and I found it impossible to get a good night's sleep or an afternoon kip there: the noise was coming from outside all through the night (street noise, nearby music, deliveries) and from the hotel (I could hear EVERY step from upstairs. I was on the 3rd floor (out of 4).
(2) the location is great for the beach (5 min walk away), but not for the shops, restaurants, etc. If that is a concern, bear in mind you will need a few taxis given the heat.

For me, these two drawbacks are major ones for a hotel in what-should-had-been a relaxing destination. On the plus side:

-the hotel was much cheaper than anything else of similar standard that i could find on the Beach. In hindsight, I would have paid extra to go somewhere else
-staff was super helpful
-they don't try to make money off you at every opportunity: wi-fi and 24-hour coffee are free and there is a decent cold breakfast included in the price. They also provide towels for the beach (and I believe bikes for riding around town, but i didn't use them so can't tell for sure). I should say that $34 for valet parking (only choice) seemed a lot when there was a public parking nearby.

Veramente una bella esperienza.
Struttura piacevole a due passi dalla splendida spiaggia e accanto alla via principale, la sera piena di mivida.
Camera carinissima e veramente pulita, doccia splendida.
Ottima la colazione.
Unico neo: il valet parking (non ci sono parcheggi in zona) a 34$ al giorno.

A really good experience.
Nice texture to two steps from the beach and next to the main street in the evening full of mivida.
Cute room and really clean, great shower.
Excellent breakfast.
The only drawback: the valet parking (there is no parking in the area) to 34 $ per day.

This hotel is nice enough, but can certainly improve a few things. Breakfast is very basic, just coffee, toast and bagels. We had quite a bit of noise throughout the night from the rooms above us, it sounded like elephants tap dancing, which kept us awake for hours. And the housekeeping staff walked into our room without knocking, which was a little off-putting. The hotel is about 10 blocks from the lively parts of Ocean Drive, which feels like quite a big walk when doing it a few times during the hot humid day or in heels at night! We ended up getting a cab a couple of times, so I think next time I would prefer to stay somewhere slightly closer to the action.
On the plus side, the hotel is just metres from the beach, and the front desk staff were quite helpful.

Clean and airy! The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was amazing. Great coffee available at all hours. The Price was the truly unbelieveable for the location, amenities and customer service provided at this hidden gem!

We cannot wait to return to the Townhouse Hotel. The beach was only steps away and it was magnificient!

Room Tip: The Price was unbeatble for the location and cleanliness!

My boyfriend and I just spent a lovely 4 day weekend at the wonderful Townhouse hotel in South Beach,FL. We turned up early on Friday and were greeted by a great staff. The hotel room couldnt have been any nicer, super clean, bright, airy rooms. The hotel was really wonderful, they serve a complimentary breakfast every morning which was always fresh, tea and coffee is also on offer through out the day. The hotel is literally steps from the beach, they offer umbrellas and sun loungers on the beach (for a small charge) which is great. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful, the concierge were very knowledable about the area and recommended several great restaurants that we tried. The hotel also has a lovely rooftop garden complete with sun chairs and umbrellas. I can't rate this hotel high enough and can't wait to go back!

For the price and the location, it would be hard to beat the Townhouse Hotel. A 2 minute walk to the beach and maybe 10 minutes to Lincoln Road Mall, the hotel was exactly what we were looking for. The rooms were very minimalist but that wasn't a problem for us - they were very comfortable and clean.

The breakfast was simple but nice, although it was hard to find room to sit down sometimes and the room it's served from is very small!

The staff were always helpful, lending beach towels, giving maps etc.
