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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location, location, location!"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Why the bad reviews? This isn't the Hilton ; - )"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel"
I loved this hotel. The attention was great, they always help me when i needed. The room was very nice, everything white, we have microwave, a table to eat, cofee, the bathdroom was perfectly clean, i like it a lot. Very close to the beach and not that close to let you sleep quite. I would come back there. Its perfect and not that expensive. Its pe […] rfect. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good Place to Stay in Sobe"
I was on the 3rd floor and the room was quiet even though it was close to the slowest elevator I have ever been on. The room was clean and every- thing worked well. It is close to a lot of things in South Beach and it was less than other hotels.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

rude staff , bad smell all over . Old noisy conditioner, very small TV.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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 Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"leave your valuables at home!"
room was reasonably clean but the appliances badly needed replacement. On the second day of our stay I couldn't open the room safe anymore. The girl at the reception unlocked it and commented that "this happens all the time". I later found my wife's (inexpensive) jewelry to be missing from the safe. Not recommended!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Can't beat the price & location."
Great price. Two short blocks from Ocean Drive smack dab in the middle of South Beach. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Plus a cool history behind the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good for an over-nighter."
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.

"Price is right for location only."
Price is great for the location. Hotel wasn't bad but our fridge wasn't working & the girl at the front desk didn't seem to care. Also....ice machine was broken as well so we could keep any od our drinks, water & food cold so it all went to waste.Genuine Expedia guest review

"don't stay here"
hotel is 2 star at most. heavy coats of paint on the walls, cheap lighting fixtures, ceramic tiles on all floors, odd odors in the halls and room. we stayed here 1 night ,in a deluxe room, before our cruise. we never planned to be in our room because of walking distance to ocean drive (shopping, food, bars etc). you would be better off staying in north […] beach and taking a cab or to $ave use the bus to ocean drive.

"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.

"A Motel 6 atmosphere"
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. I would not recommend it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent spot to crash"
Decent spot. Great location but the room was a bit cramped. The restroom was also pretty small. However, it's a decent place to crash for the night and is only a 5 min walk to Ocean blvd.Genuine Expedia guest review
"I liked the hotel, but didn't get the room I paid"
I did like the hotel and it was an awesome location, but when I purchased it, it said suite and it was not what I thought I was paying for. Hotel.com had wrong hotel description and it cost me money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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 Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"The place for me on South Beach!"
I like the smiling service that greets you when you enter the lobby. The cool lemon water that is available when you enter. The location is excellent. 2 blocks from the beach on Ocean Drive plus less than one block away is the local 25 cent bus at 8th and Washington that takes you to Lincoln Road and all around South Beach. The room was white and clean. […] There is a fridge, microwave, and a safe that can hold a laptop. The hotel is quiet and in a good area. On 9th street and Washington, there is a 7-11, and there are so many great eating places on Washington of all price ranges from Japanese, to Latin, to Italian to vegetarian salads. This hotel was wonderful for my nine-day stay, very convenient, clean and comfortable. I will certainly return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"ART DECO- OLD South Beach"
Pictures on web had better lighting then the real thing. Rooms were clean but definitely older. Jacuzzi looked more like a bath tub- very small. Free computer internet in the lobby was helpful but would have preferred wifi in room. Good restaurant suggestions at desk. Soap in the bathroom would have been nice. Good deal for the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Royal South Becah Hotel"
Very central and quite convenient for anyone spending a lot of time on the beach (2 blocks away) & looking forward to a hectic night life. Noise levels at night are rather too high - all the hotel rooms are on the 1st level above 2 bars that belch loud music throught the night till wee hours. Otherwise if offers easy access to all central locations […] & immediate bars & street side restaurants. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We stayed here one night before we left for our cruise, it was okay. You can't beat the location, it was perfect, especially for the price!! It wasn't a 5 star hotel or anything, don't expect that, but it works for a night. The water pressure wasn't to great and the $5 continental breakfast was pitiful. Other than that, it wasn't to bad for just one […] night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good value, but remeber your in South Beach !"
I was a little afraid when I read the reviews before the trip. The "good": Clean , fairly modern. Liked the fact that the room had a tile floor ( granite or marble ?), rather than carpet. The solarium on the second floor ( with jacuzzi tub) was a plus. I did not hear ( or see) the night club reported in previous reviews (out of business?). Fairly closed […] to the beach and restaurants. The "Bad": $27/per night for valet parking, but the desk clerk did point us to the public parking garage around the corner for $20/night. The neighorhood is noisy ( but that's South Beach baby !) Would not recommend this location for a family. Summary: Good value for basic accomodations, given that fact that it's in the South Beach neighborhood (very "urban"). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
