Tropics Hotel & Hostel
Reviewed 4 September 2013

This is more like a youth hostel. We stayed in a three-single-bed room. The hotel is pretty basic, but okay for a short stay. Short walk to the beach and to the South Miami Beach promenade. If I am on my own or with friends I would stay there again. If I am with children then I will look for something else.

Stayed: May 2013, travelled with friends

Want to see youreself as Miami Vice crew member?
This is a great vintage place for 3a reasonable price.
The location is great- about 50m from the beach.
Fine kitchen and pool. You can also watch the Kardashians on cable tv :)

FIrst of all, yes, it is a hostel AND hotel, so, it's a hostel with private rooms (with private bathrooms!)...there are, in the common area, a kitchen and a pool (very good, both of them, but, of course, COMMON).

There are renewed and non renewed rooms...the first ones are ok, the latter, not so much. Shower is from bad to ok...cleaning is not perfect also...the carpets are old. Well, it's an old hotel...like all the other ones in South Beach (except the over 300 usd ones, maybe).

Location is fabulous - 100m from the ocean, 200m from lincoln road mall, 200m from espanola way, 30m from the cheapest public parking in miami beach. So, fantastic.

If what you're looking for is a honest, good priced hotel (and hostel), on a fantastic location, you've found it...

Stayed there about 4 times and will be back. In Miami, for me, only tropics. Unbeatable cost effectiveness...

Room Tip: Rooms on the front area are really noisy! Ask for a renewed room!

I stayed on the 2nd floor, which STUNK of mold. There were creepy old guys hanging out in the hallway, which made me very uncomfortable as a single female traveler, and the hallway was extremely dark and filthy (as was the clunky old elevator). The room had been cleaned, but was still very dirty (carpet stains, very old and worn bedding) plus it had extremely dated furniture and bathroom, and very odd photos on the walls of semi-naked couples. After 24 hours I had bug bites on my legs, and noticed house keeping did not change my bedding or towels, they just made the bed and folded everything up. The provided wi-fi did not work in my room at all, so I could only get access in the lobby. My colleagues stayed on the 3rd floor, which fortunately did not smell as bad, but the A/C was very loud and did not cool down the rooms at all. The laundry for guests was also the laundry used by housekeeping, so it was only available for a very short time at the end of the day (and there are no laundromats close by). The staff on the front desk were generally quite rude and unhelpful. I checked out and went somewhere else after 2 nights, they do not offer any kind of refund. If you have to stay in Miami and absolutely cannot afford something else, then this place is in a great location, but if you have the money then just go somewhere else. If you have children, PLEASE do not stay here.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else!

Rooms are OK, close to beach, but the clientele staying there is very questionable. Lobby is normally filled with the same people willing to "take advantage" of one's American kindness. I realize it is sort of a "Hostel" but it also offers hotel rooms to those whom can afford one. Pool is great. I've been here twice and will probably not go back.

The hotel is nearby the best places in Miami Beach... I´m very satisfied! Nearby the beach, good restaurants, shopping... and have a public parking behind the hotel. The employees from the hotel are very kindly

Location really close to ocean drive, Lincoln road and Espanola was. Couldn't be better! Great outside kitchen. No wifi in rooms. Only one minute from the beach. Rooms big enough. Only the smell of weed the whole day
