“Nice but ...”
Reviewed 9 February 2011

we had a nice enough stay to enjoy the trip. the reception staff was really friendly but sold us a room which was right next to a building sight so the noise got us out of bed really early also houskeeping disturbed us in the middle of the night. The fridge in the room was making a lot of noise but if u kicked it it shut up! Ants in the bathroom and a broken air condition made our stay quiet interresting.

Clean, great value and excellent location on Ocean Drive. Pick the rooms at the back if you want decent sleep. If you plan on being out late and up early Century is great value for South Beach. Go walk to Nikki Beach to party and try inexpensive homestyle cuban at Puerto Sagua (couple of blocks away from Century).

West, at the front desk got me in on a last minute request. Parking costs $25 per day. A solid 3 star imho.

My wife and I stayed at this cute boutique hotel in South Beach, with a great location just minutes from the beach, restaurants, etc. Rooms are clean and well keept, unfortunately, we had some troubles relaxing because of the street noise and the 2 big dogs living in the hotel that bark loud quite often. Staff is very friendly, but here is my big complain, Andreas, who claims to be the "Manager" of this place, made me feel unconfortable in every possible way, he was very disrespectful and intrusive, and had a funny arrogant attitude with everyone (Imcluding other staff members)
Other than that, the city is beautiful, and it's plenty of options to either party or relax at any ot the very many great restaurants South Beach has to offer.

Greeted by name, stayed almost a week. Friendly staff, exceptionally clean rooms, quiet, and directly across the street from the Marriott which had smaller rooms for double the price. My colleagues left there and stayed with us here!

This hotel is a great place to stay. They attended to everything that we needed and more. It is a great location and it is across the street from the beach. I would stay here again.

this is the second time I have stayed at this boutique hotel right on Ocean Drive. It has a great location being minutes away from the beach and short walk to the many bars and restaurants along Ocean Drive or you could pop next door to Danny DeVitos restaurant! The rooms are very clean and all you can ask for at the great prices on offer. You could pay double to stay at the Marriott across the road but you will not get the same great service which is personable and very friendly. i would recommend to anyone who would like to stay on the famous Ocean Drive at a great price....you will not be disappointed!

This hotel is in a great location, being directly across the street from the beach and walking distance to great nightlife and entertainment. As the other postings mentioned, this is NOT a luxury hotel, but it's a great, clean place and very affordable as well. The rooms were very simple, with clean hardwood floors and a decent sized bathroom. While we were there, aesthetic work seemed to be constantly taking place. Whether there were rooms being painted or carpets being shampooed, great care went into making this place a clean and comfortable environment. The staff were all very accommodating and pleasant. We did note that the noise could be problematic at times. We usually had the air conditioner on at night, which helped filter out a lot of the noise. However, late night stragglers who would slam doors and garbage trucks at 8 a.m. may be a problem for some who are light sleepers. Honestly, I can't imagine it being any better at any other place in South Beach, since most of the other hotels would be extremely close to the blaring music of nearby restaurants or bars anyhow. All in all, this was a great find and we would definitely come back!
