"South beach beach bum."
The location was perfect for my needs, this was a last minute trip to the beach to visit old friends from Chicago. Upon arrival the staff was very pleasant even at 3 am when I arrived. The room was ok, however in Miami air conditioning is a must. My room was hot and humid because there was no way to turn the a/c on. I opened the window but the hustle […] on the streets after midnight kept me up. The continental breakfast left much to be desired as it consisted of boxed and individually wrapped pastries that you could pick up off the shelf at Walmart. I would suggest not advertising breakfast at all but instead put a map if the area that shows good local breakfast destinations. The television in the room was a relic from my childhood with poor picture. A good working t.v. Would be a good distraction from the lack of a/c and all the noise from an open window. The price was not bad but for that amount I expect air conditioning all the rest is forgettable. Some work into the building would justify the price. Overall I think the two star rating is a star too much. The hotel room should be a place of escape from the extremities of south beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"it was okay"
The hotel is no frills but the price was good. The front desk was very slow and they would not allow us to cehck in early although they cehcked in two people before us who had walked in and bought a room... really? someone with a reservation has to wait but you will give anyone off the street a room right away to secure their business? Hmmm... not good […] customer service Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nightmare in south beach"
I NEEDED TO FIND A HOTEL FOR 2 DAYS IN SOUTH BEACH IN BETWEEN 2 JOBS.BECAUSE OF SPRING BREAK AND OTHER EVENTS MOST OF THE ROOMS AVAILABLE WERE ABOVE MY BUDGET($600 AND UP). I BOOKED A ROOM FOR $169 AT THE PARISIAN HOTEL,BIG MISTAKE. THEY PUT ME IN THE ANNEX WHICH IS VERY CLOSE TO A JAIL CELL...DEPRESSING ,NOISY,THE FREE INTERNET WAS DOWN...IT WAS MY […] WORSE TIME IN A HOTEL EVER...THE ROOM WAS WORTH $20 BUT NOT MORE Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was not what I was expecting. I was expecting a suite with a refridge and a microwave., the room was little with a small fridge & no microwave. The beds did not look clean. Luckily I had my own blanket & pillow. Housekeeping was very nice & hardworking. Tje bathrooms were kept clean.. The location is perfect but the hotel itself needs a lot […] of work.

"Decent hotel. Bad parking"
The parking was pretty bad for a hotel & expensive but it was to be expected for south beach. Otherwise I thought that the hotel was fine, not the best but definitely not the worst. I'd stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Most disgusting hotel I've ever been in"
When we checked in, the man at the counter ran outside to try to haggle people walking by to stay at the hotel, so we waited there until he was done. When he finally came back in, he gave us our room keys and told us we would be at the hotel next door (the "sister" hotel Geneva). The main lobby of this "hotel" is just a tiny room that is actually a […] car and moped rental place. Just so happened room 1 was literally on the other side of the wall from this rental place so we could hear all the customers and employees at 7 am the next morning. When we opened the door to our room I actually felt my skin crawl. The tile floors were covered in what looked like a 5 year buildup of dirt - I refused to even take my shoes off. There was an old couch that looked like it didn't belong and it had holes in it... There was also a mini kitchen that I didn't even dare go in. The blankets on the bed felt like they were made out of cardboard and when we pulled the cover back there was something in the bed (it looked like the stems of a grape). I immediately booked a different hotel for the rest of our stay... We slept in this room the first night only because it was already 945 pm when we checked in. I can't believe this place has any stars for its rating - I felt dirty just standing in the room. I would definitely recommend spending a little extra money and staying at a different place.

Waiting for the elevator after our 1-night stay, my friend (who happens to be Russian) said "This place reminds me of Soviet Russia. There's no place like home." It was hilarious. (Despite the fact I never went to Russia when it was the Soviet Union, I got the point...) The place is a dump and the staff was among the most un-friendliest I've ever dealt […] with. However, if you need a bed and you're extremely low-maintenance and you want to be in the middle of everything, why the heck not. At least you get to experience was Soviet Russia was like.

This hotel looks nothing like on website its looks like a motel. I was told it was free parking from expedia and there was a $20 per day fee and also the rooms are soo small and needs to be updated. I had to leave because of family emergency and they didnt refund my money when i paid for two nights and only stayed a day. Never returning againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location; poor conditio"
I knew what I was getting into based on prior guests feedback but I was still surprised by this hotel. It is pretty rundown and down right gross. I was fortunate enough to get a room with a new comfortable mattress in it, room #40. I got a glance at some of the other rooms when the maids were cleaning they looked as bad as mine. The beds looked awful. […] Other than a nice mattress there isn't much positive to say about this hotel. The location is perfect for the beach, Ocean Drive and Lincoln Road. Staff was friendly. Price could be better considering how shabby this hotel is. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I get charge double just becuase I dint return the key the beds was like hard wood I'm stil having back painGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very bad very expensive"
This hotel has poor service, very small bedrooms with pretty old furniture... overall for this price it´s not worth it, even the location is good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is more like a hostel. It's clean but dated. The beds are ok. The location is very central in south beach. A block away from the beach. The front desk staff in the middle of the night was arrogant at best. In the morning they were nicer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel from an horror movie.located in a car rental"
Didnt have any washclothes in the room, we had to go to the front desk and ask for some and they only gave us two washclothes. The room was too cold and we shouldn't control the air..so we had to close th vents...We had no microwaveGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location / Decent Rooms"
Overall location was great (in the middle of everything and close to the beach and shops). The room was decent and clean, The housekeeping staff and front desk staff were friendly and helpful. I would recommend taking the stairs as the elevator broke down in the middle of the night (it is only 3 stories so not a bad walk up or down). If I knew ahead […] of time, I would have brought my own towels from home as the ones provided looked very worn out and not soft at all. The free breakfast consisted of a bagel/toast that was pre-wrapped (we ended up going to Starbucks instead). But for the price we paid I was satisfied with the hotel (it is quite old and could use a make-over). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location is the only thing I liked"
The room was really small. In the preview of pictures it shows a kitchen but this was only a small room and a bathroom. No ice available, then we stayed till 7pm after check out and paid $73. But the hotel said it was till 5pm so they took our security deposit. I will never return to this hotel. Too small for $150.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Basic hotel in a great location"
I booked this hotel last minute. It was bare bones but had all of the necessary amenities. I was surprised to hear that they make every guest put down a $50 deposit, which they charged to my card, to ensure I checked out on time. Their check out time is also 11 AM, which while it isn't completely unreasonable, was a little early. I appreciated they […] had hotel parking across the street for $20, which is a pretty good deal for South Beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel has a great location on Collins, one block from the beach. The cleaning staff is friendly and available for extra towels. But the front desk... oh lord.. TERRIBLE!Genuine Expedia guest review
"a plane where you will not like to go"
They put me in the next building, the lobby is a rent a car office, you pass a door an there are rooms at both sides. At the moment of the check inn ther was another guest complaining with the people of the front desk. Do not go even it is for free.Genuine Expedia guest review

Wireless did not work and staff was completely unconcerned about it. Free breakfast is a joke.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Prime location but still in my budget"
I was only there one night but I found the hotel to my liking.most important to me is beds,shower pressure and location.across the street was the ocean and 1 block north was Lincoln road.hopefully next time I can stay longer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to ocean drive"
it was ok, overprice for the condition of the hotel.. but in a last minute booking works... the bathroom are so old, towels and sheets are very old as well and a little durty.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Terrible hotel, great location"
This hotel offers the worst service i have ever had, the staff is very rude, unfriendly and just flat out nasty. The room is Ok, but the Air condition is blasting all day and no way to change the temperature. It's freezing in the room and I don't usually get cold. The TV service is lousy, no cable channells at all but you can around that. On the other […] hand, the hotel location is superb, it's right down the main south beach Road. Close to the beach, and all other south beach attractions. If you don't care about the quality of the place you stay in but rather have a great location, this is the place for you, otherwise, stay away, you'll thank me for it.

"Worst hotel in south beach"
Worst hotel ive ever stayed in avoid at all cost!!!!!! No ac!!!! And the hygene is horrible !!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Honestly, i must say that this hotel was just terrible.Here is a list that shows how horrible this hotel was: Awful service, (talking to people in a horrible manor) a discusting atmosphere, and other facilities in the room which were very bad. Also we left the hotel on the day we booked and they wouldn't give us a refund, so we asked the receptionist […] if we can give our room to someone else but they rudely did not let us. As a result I recommend that you never book with the Persian hotel as it is a peasents home. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very expensive for poor quality and low standards"
The Parisian is less a hotel, rather a very low standard hostel room. Myself and my girlfriend have stayed in better youth hostels costing £20/night, somewhat disappointing considering The Parisian cost £99/night discounted from £139. Alarm bells started to ring on reading a sign which strictly stated "No Refunds", and when we were quizzed on the size […] of our party despite making a reservation for two. We were also made to pay a $50 security deposit, and on arrival to our room were struggling to see how anybody could possibly inflict that amount of damage to it! The bed was absolutely shocking, to the extent where we considered sleeping in our car. To name a few of the other issues the air conditioning hardly worked, the carpets were old and dirty, so too was the furniture. Finally the noise from partying teenagers went on through the night adding to the difficulty to have a good night sleep before our flight. We couldn't get out of the place quick enough...please do avoid and stay in the Carlton Hotel opposite, which was a delight at half the price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Pretty Basic Hotel"
07/05/14 larrygrehan orlando, florida
Just as I sit here to write this review, out of the corner of my eye I see other peoples reviews. I read the first 3 and have to say I cannot agree with 90% of the comments. I stayed 2 nights here in June 2014. Before I stayed here I checked a Fancy Hotel right across the road from the Parisian called Lowes Hotel. beautiful place but the price was just as beautiful, ballpark with all the hidden charges about $1200 for the 2 nights. So not wanting to waste my hard earned cash I saw the Parisian. The room was $99 per night plus tax. I personally always ask to look at the room before I make the booking, as the hotel will always give you the best room they have left to get your business. I thought the room was a good size with 2 Queen beds, a bed locker, a chest of drawers, 42" T.V., good size shower and toilet. All it needed was a coat of fresh light colored paint and the room was fine. The only complaint about the room was the Air Conditioner button did not work, so I had to open the window a little at night. Breakfast was "included". Breakfast was a help yourself breakfast, Coffer, Orange Juice and a biscuit or little cake in a plastic bag. 1 between 2 people, If you ask for more they say you got the last one as you were lat coming for breakfast. I watched the girl doing the breakfast and just as the next 2 people come along she put 1 more cake on the serving tray. Miami is a big city with too many people, constant road works, and over inflated prices on everything. Plenty of restaurants within 5 minutes walking distance from the hotel, but expect to pay double for your meal, what you would pay in Orlando for instance.
"Terrible and expensive. The worst motel is better than this."

"The worst ever..."
02/11/14 Dmi3y_NY New York City, New York
This had been the first time ever when I checked in and had to leave as soon as I got into the room. I just had to run away from that place. Stink! Dirt! Anti-sanitary conditions! Is there any authority that controls it somehow?! Moreover, when complained the desk did not want to refund.
"Avoid this hotel, first time in my life I checked in an hotel then checked out right away!!"
12/05/13 ChrisU3555IP New York City, New York
We made a reservation online for the hotel, not knowing what it was. The woman at the front desk was extremely rude! The room was $250 the night. Even thought there was no chance to get our money back. It's the first time in my life I checked in an hotel then checked out right away!!
11/11/13 chlmz Pelotas, RS
Ok so we got here by chance, because AMEXTRAVEL screwed our reservarions on the Haddon Hall. Well since it was a booking done on the hour, they charged us more 150 dollars per-night for a two-bed room. For the price I assumed this was a nice hotel, but no. They said they had internet in the lobby, but that was a LIE, during the 2 nights we could not connect even once, and first this lady on the counter whcih booked us just told me, that is not possible I have internet, and kept working, not even moved a finger, than other guy tried to Lie again saying they were fixing it, but nothing changed. Rooms were acceptable, and beds were comfortable, but they did not clean our room until 3pm, because they had to wash aaalll the hotel towels, because they didnot have replacements. Lobby looked like a poor, snack/bar of the 50s, with 2 other guys offering tours and auto rentals. elevator only fits 2 people, and the certificated of funtioning expired in 2011 Breakfast is a JOOOOOOOOOOKE only coffe, cream and orange juice, with poor imitation of mini croissants. Look My recomendation would be just dont stay there, and actually ALL hotels in the miami beach area, which price range is between 100-150 is the same crap, so unless you are a millonare and want to spend 400 a night in the Ritz or 300 in the royal palm, just DONT GO TO MIAMI BEACH, spend you money in other place. Punta cana has all included resorts for the same price and are awsome.
"Don't stay here!"
11/03/13 Diego A
The rooms were more or less acceptable, but the worst thing was breakfast! It's hilarious that they even call it so: no bread, no milk, no egg, no fruit, only a horrible cafe and a couple of cheap uneatable muffins! Last but not least, when I tried to pay with my credit card they told me that it wasn't working, so my colleague paid. My credit card worked everywhere else before and after the incident. When I came back home and check my account: SURPRISE! They DID book the night though!
10/20/13 Gauldie1977 Elgin
I stayed on the 3rd floor and it was noisy up until midnight !! Thought there was a fight taking place ! My kids were scared!! Slept ok through the night but was on edge all the time !! A nice hole in the shower curtain and lack of towels !!!! The safe didn't work and the breakfast was terrible !! A cake, orange juice or coffee were the choices !! Only stayed 1 night but location was good . I booked this last minute as we were stopping off in Miami for 1 night and everywhere was full .
