"Spartan yet functional"
More like a hostel. Not a resort. Rooms are small and bare yet quite clean. Everything in working order. Close to beach and nightlife. NO parking available. Use city lots. Staff friendly and helpful. Did not eat at the $5 breakfast bar. Cheap price relative to South Beach and no frills. But would stay again if on a budget.

Second time here ! Can't beat the location or price. Wish they still had the hot tub! The shower pressure was off but nothing to really end the stay over. Could use some paint touch ups but who is really in the room to look.. It's Miami! Hit the beach!

"Don't waste your money"
Super expensive and not at all worth it. Rooms are VERY small and there is a charge for everything- extra person charge for our daughter, continental breakfast, parking, etc. Absolutely no parking available because there is no parking lot there. We had to park in the middle of the road and unload our stuff from there. You have to pay a valet to park your car. If you don't want to pay a valet, then good luck finding somewhere because there is nothing. The staff is not friendly either. The only good thing is that the room was clean and beds were comfortable and it is only a block or so to the beach; however, we couldn't see out of our room window because it was super dirty on the outside. We won't ever stay there again.

"Good value for South Beach"
This place is a good value for the area - easy walk to the beach and heart of Collins Ave. If you're on a tight budget, however, lookout for the extra $8 per person/day "resort fee" and $27/day parking charge. Our room had a comfy bed, fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker. The people at the front desk treat you like you're invisible when you walk by, so don't expect any "royal" service.

Close to the beach. There are a 7-11, a public parking structure, and lots of restaurants and shops in walking distance. No carpet in the room and the microwave and air-condition were not in their top shape. This is my first time staying in Miami Beach, so I am not sure about the average price and quality of hotels in the area. It is a passable hotel.

"Great Location in South Beach"
Very helpful front desk person put us in a big room that was better suited to us -- two older children and a parent. Very nice. But this isn't a first class lodging. One bed sagged toward the middle and the bathroom needed work -- no towel bars or hooks, grout needed to be replaced, toilet didn't flush well. Nonetheless, it was spacious, location was great, it was quiet and not expensive.

"not to far off the loudness and hustle of collins"
Hotel was great in this number one regard: It was quiet as can be for South Beach. I went and stayed for work and its nice to have some quiet but hard to find in the main area of south beach. They did a good job at keeping room and hotel clean as well. I liked that very much. The hotel is old and you can feel that and see it, my room was set up strangely because of this. But overall I would stay here again. It was a large room and I felt comfortable. My friend had a car and he parked it easily. Staff was friendly.

"Great Location- Clean and Reasonable Price"
Staff was friendly and helpful. We arrived early, and it was nice to be able to lock up luggage in the lobby before check-in so we could explore the area luggage-free. Nice outdoor terrace to relax on, day or night. Room was clean and comfortable. It's an old building, so obviously there are some things that are outdated, but who cares? You're in South Beach, you shouldn't even be in your room that much anyway! We would stay here again if in South Beach.

"So-So"
The hotel photos do not reflect the actual property. It is more mediocre than pictured. Clean and friendly but definitely very average and off the beaten bath. No parking to unload and valet is $27/night. Parking garage is a block away and lugging suitcases etc. 2 blocks was not fun. None of this information was in the hotel description and would have helped me prepare better. It was fine but i would not stay there again unless I was desperate. It would be worth it to pay more money to have some conveniences. In-room safe, microwave and fridge were very helpful. Old in need of renovation to common spaces. Quiet enough and on a residential street within walking distance to food and shopping. Just 3 blocks or so from the beach.

We were most pleased with the location of this hotel, walking distance to great restaurants, shopping, Ocean Drive, etc. It was also very clean. The staff was most accommodating when they saw my husband had a walker, and moved us to a room closer to the elevator. It was occasionally a little noisy at night, but did not hinder either of us sleeping. We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful boutique hotel in the heart of south Miami Beach! Now... there isn't a bar, restaurant, hot tub, swimming pool, ice, or even a vending machine. But you can find all of that within a block, and the beach is 5 blocks away. lf you want to explore the area on foot for a day or two, this hotel is an excellent choice. Funky furnishings, excellent location, and reasonably priced... l'll stay again, if l'm in the area.

"Excellent location! Just a few maintenance issues"
Stayed here after just randomly deciding that I needed a mini getaway from school and work. I'm a college grad student on a budget and saw this as the perfect place being centrally located to all the Miami nightlife as well as within minutes walking distance from the beach. That being said, anyone whos been to miami beach before knows that a hotel at that price or heck under about 250 a night is not going to be perfect. I realized after I booked the room that it was a suit and it was actually pretty roomy and clean. Check in/out process was efficient. Only problem was the door to my room. Apparently the screws stuck out a bit and I was sort "locked" while getting ice (which is upstairs on the rooftop outside). Maintenance guy did eventually come an fix it with a little hesitation at first (as his tv show may have been a little more important than my being stuck outside in a just a pair shorts and a tank top waiting to get back in the room to all my of personal belongings). It was finally fixed after making about 3 trips to the check in counter and a call to the manager off site. Other than that little setback it wasn't that bad at all and I still had time to enjoy myself that night.

"Not so Royal"
Room was ok. There was a difference in the price quoted online and amount actually paid. Charged more at the hotel. Room was clean. Though the air con was a major issue. Only had one speed and could not be run at low. Was attached to wall and made the wall vibrate which transfers from the wall to to the bed head ( which is screwed to the wall ) to the bed. Making the bed vibrate. Not pleasant. Thoughts could fix this by turning off the air con. Only to find that the air con in the next room. 340. Was also attached to the same wall at it was adding its happy vibrations to m the wall as well. Was a night on little sleep Te other issue was could not get the room phone to work. Even after calling reception. Ended up giving up in the end

"A Typical South Beach Property"
South Beach is popular and expensive, so I expected to pay inflated room rates and not get what I paid for. This was the case here, but it's not to say that this is a bad property. It is equivalent in quality to your standard Days Inn room. Our ACs (had a two bedroom room, so two separate ACs) hardly did the job and windows didn't open, so the rooms got hot. We stayed in February, so not a big issue, but I feel summer could be torture. The location is great - a couple blocks from the beach, so you don't the noise of Ocean, but you get the proximity to it. The sun deck is only good to use up to noon, and then it is shadowed. The staff is very friendly and helpful, just don't expect the Ritz when you walk in.

"Much left to be desired"
The hotel left much to be desired. Although it was in a relatively convenient location, it did not justify the price. The room's walls and windows were extremely thin which made it impossible to sleep. There was little water pressure and equally not existent hot water. The toilet was easily clogged and the furniture a little too minimalist artsy for the price. Additionally, there supposed valet parking took too long to appear and even longer to retrieve the car.

"Wished I never heard of this hotel"
There is nothing royal about this hotel other than being a royal pain to stay at. The room we stayed in overlooked Washington Avenue which is quite busy with all the restaurants, shops, and nightlife which is fine but not so great when you're looking to get a night's rest. Allow us to explain further as follows. 1. The room only had a single light and the bulb was very dim. We could not see anything in the room. Called the front desk to have a brighter bulb put in but was told their maintenance will take care of it in the morning!?!? 2. The window facing the Washington Avenue was not sealed correctly so all of the street noise can be heard in the hotel room. My wife and I could not sleep all night because of all the cars, motorcyles, people yelling, and the occasional police sirens. Needless to say, we were not the only visitors that had the same problem because I spoke with another guest at the hotel the next day and they had the same problem with the noise. When we called the front desk to ask for another room, the receptionist simply said "the hotel is over 80 years old so there's nothing we can do about it." 3. The shower head had very low water pressure so the water coming out was dribbling at best. Needless to say, it literally took me over 40 minutes to shower.

We stayed overnight for one night after a cruise. The hotel has unique art-deco designs and furniture. We layed outside at the solarium to relax. The place is part of a night club, but we didn't hear any loud noise or anything and we were on the 2nd floor. It's location is really good being just a couple blocks away from the beach and plenty of restaurants. The staff was really friendly. Overall, it wasn't a bad stay.

"Great hotel and location for going out on the town"
I stayed on the third floor and the music of the club and the passerbys all night long-I felt like I was there. The walls are paper thin, which is fine if the people next door aren't making loud noises if you know what I mean. The view and kitchen were great. The beds and pillows were beyond comfortable, way above expectations there. Perfect if you're going to be out on the town at night, not if you have a race in the morning as I did.

Unfortunately, not a good experience. I wanted a hotel in South Beach and this hotel was in a perfect location, but the room was not nice, loud, inefficient AC, outlets that didn't work and horrible decor.. It is an old hotel, and the plastic furniture in the room (art nouveau??) was too big for such a small room. The desk clerk was very nice and accommodating, but we didn't want to be in the room.

My first impression was Mel, who worked the front desk when I called to confirm my check-in time. She could not have been any more pleasant and accommodating and put me in a great room. I liked that this was a small boutique hotel without all the bells and whistles, which made for a nice and simple visit at a great price. The location was excellent, as it was a five-minute walk to the beach. Unless I stay with friends who live on the beach, I will most likely be coming back to this hotel.

"confused initally, but would go back :)"
The hotel we booked 'on the fly' (in the taxi, leaving from the port of Miami after our cruise had docked, last second quick search from my Expedia.com iPhone app.) We were thrilled to find an affordable priced hotel in South Beach, that was only 2 blocks away from the beach! :) When we arrived, it was a bit of a shock to see what we were in for. The hotel decor of the 'reception area' looked old, run down, and like it was made out of the back of someones home... the elevator was a bit frighting to ride...lol, and the room itself... well, it was as if we walked into another era, with 70's white plastic decor. The hotel itself in its entirety looked absolutely nothing like the photos on the website(s). It was very misleading, which is why we were very disappointed. - The stay was only for one night, so it wasnt terrible. In the hotel's defense.. we didn't do much research on the place as far as past reviews go. (since we booked it so suddenly). It's just that we were expecting something a bit different. - Overall, the staff was accommodating, kind, and to be honest i would stay there again. just get new pictures up so people aren't shocked and annoyed! <3

I feel the pictures on the internet do not do this hotel justice. I was expecting a shabby, run down hotel but I was pleasantly surprised. Although small, the reception was clean and tidy and check in was a breeze. I found the room to be clean and comfortable but did have my concerns with the amount of noise coming through the single glazed windows. Even the welcome booklet informs the guest that ear plugs are available at reception. As it turned out I did not get disturbed during the night and slept well. All staff members were curtious and a pleasure to chat to.

"Improvement Needed"
Location is good as it is only 3 junctons from Ocean Drive with public transport stops just a block away. The hotel is located behind Washington Avenue where plenty of shops and restuarants can be found. Staff got be more tactful in telling guest about the hotel's check-in time and services that are not operated by the the hotel such as public transport and outside tour operators as not to down grade those services. Room and bathroom look clean but the bed linens didn't smell fresh and nor did the curtains that have visible stains. Ants were found on the pantry counter throughout my 3 nights stay..Corridor looks dingy and not well-lit. Strong smell of Clorox when I checked in. Lobby has no bathroom or toilet and guests who have not got rooms yet were told to use the beach front restaurants or public toilets in a lack of consideration manner.
