    The location was convenient and the room was spacious.

    Upon arrival, entering the building I was frankly disappointed by the looks of it. As soon as I walked to the front desk I was annoyed by a smell much like the one you would come across in a basement or an old house. I saw past the smell and went on to pay. Right after the receptionist swiped my credit card I was told to my surprise that it was declined. They insisted that I was the one with the problem and kept on being unfriendly towards me. Turned out their system was faulty. The single elevator in the hotel was broken and we had to climb the stairs to get to our room. Needless to say that both the corridor and the room had the same bitter smell. The bathroom door in the room wouldn't close and the balcony door wouldn't open. They, however fixed the problem later that day. When I opened the A/C I noticed that the air coming out smelled the same as that disgusting odor in the corridors. You couldn't help feeling unclean adding to the problem I noticed eye-liner stains on my pillow. By night, the corridors were illuminated by tiring blue lights, lights with color and texture such as in UV lamps. The price was insanely high for what the "hotel" had to offer (plus the room had city view) but at least breakfast was included, they unfortunately forgot to mention that only items worth 5.75 $ were covered. I can with confidence say that, that ugly looking, aesthetically unpleasing hotel should be nothing but the very last resort for anyone who would like to stay in Miami.

    This was my third stay at this hotel ( formerly The Strand ). It's still the best location for everything. Will definitely do it again.

    Desde o momento do check in não me senti em segurança; no ponto da ocean drive onde está ohotel,na calçada ocorre prostituição, comércio de drogas, música nas alturas, 24 horas/dia. As 2 recepcionistas foram supergrosseiras. Os 2 apartamentos reservados eram super inadequados para mim e minha irmã, já que temos cerca de 60 anos. O sofa cama é baixíssimo, a banheira não tem nenhum lugar de apoio para entrar e sair, nem anti-derrapante no piso. Para culminar, como o hotel lotou, não reconheceram 2 reservas feitas com o booking, para apenas 1 apartamento, de 25 a 27/01/2012. precisei fazer o check out e instalar 2 amigos num outro hotel, para aguardarem a viagem. Uma das minhas piores experiências de hospedagem.

    Good

    Les chambres sont spacieuses ,bien équipées et confortables

    Hotel bruyant,assez innevitable compte tenu de sa situation. Les parties communes de l'hotel sont quasi innexistantes,la salle du petit déjeuner est aussi désagréable que ce qui est servi dans les assiettes..la piscine sur le toit ne vaut le détour que pour la vue sur Miami

    Good

    Situé au coeur de South Beach Miami sur Ocean Drive avec la plage de l'autre côté de l'avenue. Restaurants, shopping au pied de l'hôtel. Lincoln Mall est à 5 minutes à pied.

    Pas de double vitrage + des travaux dans la rue qui commence tous les matins dès 6h30 ! un bruit infernal jusqu'a 8h. Impossible de dormir. Le nettoyage des chambres laisse à désirer. J'ai du changer de chambre car celle qui m'était attribué n'était pas prête (à 21h !).

    Fabulous

    Très bien situé sur Ocean Drive. Les chambres sont spacieuses et agréables.

    Le petit déjeuné servi dans l'hotel n'est absolument pas digne d'un établissement comme celui la.

    Very good

    Hôtel très bien situé. La chambre est très grande et propre. Il y a un espace cuisine disponible. On a pu laisser nos bagages à l'hôtel vu que notre vol était dans la nuit. Très bon hôtel.

    Le petit déjeuner servi n'est pas terrible, c'est un petit déj continental où les croissants sont pas bon, il n'y a pas d'oeufs... Vaut mieux prendre son petit déj le long d'ocean drive. Et le prix un peu cher..Mais c'est Miami !

    Good

    La posizione della camera che dava su Ocean Drive

    Ti dicono che colazione continentale e lettini in spiaggia sono già compresi nel prezzo e invece te li fanno pagare come servizi dell'hotel (Resort Fee)l!!!

    Fabulous

    La massima autonomia nell'utilizzo della camera. Si potevano utilizzare tutti I servizi senza sentire la presenza dello staff. Ottimo per la privacy.

    Solo uno da segnalare. Sono stato contattato nel cuore della notte 4 A.M. dicendomi che c'era un fattorino delle pizze e che c'era una consegna per la mia stanza. Sarà stato un errore un pò fastidioso ma superabile.
