About Freehand Miami, Miami Beach

Hip SoBe hostel close to the beach; free breakfast and WiFi

SoBe cool, European style
Freehand Miami is a luxury hotel and hostel reborn from an Art Deco classic, the former Indian Creek Hotel. For urban travelers, Miami Beach is a 5-minute walk, and Bass Museum of Art is half a mile north.

Bike the boardwalk
This budget-friendly hotel and hostel offers complimentary access to retro-style cruiser bikes. If you plan to ride around the Art Deco District, you can head over to the Art Deco Welcome Center, 1.7 miles (2.7 kilometers) south, to pick up a map, and then keep going to enjoy scenic South Pointe Park, 2.7 miles (4.3 kilometers) south.

Free breakfast, hip style
Ping-Pong tables, 2 craft cocktail bars and an outdoor pool encourage a fun atmosphere, and the free continental breakfast includes fresh fruit. The 27 restaurant and Broken Shaker bar reinvent international tastes and classic cocktails with fresh herbs picked daily from the garden around the pool. Nightly hosted wine hour from 5-6 PM closes the day out as the sun sets.

Bunk alone or together
Shared and private guestrooms give you options; you can bunk with 4 or 8 others for an inexpensive night, or you can reserve a private room. Each of the 64 guestrooms offers city, garden, or pool views, plus modern perks like free WiFi and iPod docking stations.

Happy Camper
Everything was great. We love staying here! They really have created a unique property out of a cluster of buildings on a corner with a great courtyard and pool that really shines at night time. Nice old Miami Art Deco property! Funky hip vibe! Great staff!

great place
Always a great place to stay when I visit S. beach. clean rooms, comfortable bed, and great pool area. Always my go to spot. The only negative is that night bar staff a little slow for service, I went down 2 out of three nights there and could not even get a drink. Definitely not like years past as I've stayed there the past 4 years.

Great location
We loved the location and the public space areas of this hotel. During the day it was fun and relaxing to hang by the pool. Keep in mind that part of this hotel is a hostel and that it definitely has a party atmosphere at night. Breakfast is very skimpy and not really worth waking up for. Love the free iced coffee and free bike rentals though! This hotel is about $100/night cheaper than other more luxurious hotels in the area, so as long as you go into your stay with that awareness, you will have a great time!

Would Definitely Stay Again!
Don't understimate this hotel! Prime location to all key points in SoBe. Hotel is very clean. Staff is helpful and friendly. Would stay again in the future.
