    Let me just start by saying I have been at this hotel no longer than 6 hours and I just had to write this review right away. The hotel is beautiful. Clean, chic, modern and fabulous. The location is absolutely perfect, and the price is even better! We decided to extend out Carribean honeymoon and stay in Miami for 4 days and I'm so glad we chose this hotel. The staff is beyond friendly and attentive. They had champagne and strawberries sent up to our room as soon as they found out it was our honeymoon! Such great customer service. Yes the rooms are small, but the bed is comfy and the shower is amazing. I do wish they had a pool but with the beach just a short 2 minute walk away, I really can't complain. They offer breakfast every morning, beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas for the beach, and have a great lobby bar. My husband and I will definitely be staying here again!!

    Great location and staff is friendly, helpful, and work hard for you. Rooms are small but that was okay. This is where I would stay every time I come to Miami. Really happy with it. A great value.

    I checked in on hurs 8/21 at 12:00 pm, check in was super quick. I had a corner room on the second floor which was great. The staff and service is amazing, they are exremely friendly. They brought a bottle of champagne on ice to my room beacuse I was there on my honeymoon. Beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, and breakfast included for $18 a day, which came in handy. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

    Although the rooms look "okay", they are very small. There is not much space.

    What really got to me was the employees. I felt very uneasy leaving my personal belongings in the room after one morning, when I was sleeping in, the employees knocked on the door despite the "do not disturb" sign. And when I did not answer (because I assumed they would go away) they started to unlock the door and walk right in until they saw me on the bed, which then immediately ran out.

    I could not justify why they would proceed to unlock my door when there was a "do not disturb" sign hanging on the door knob. Beats me.

    Surprisingly fantastic. The employees are attentive, they remember you, it's very clean, comfy beds, very fair price, awesome location. previous reviews about the rooms and bathrooms being small are true but for south beach it's a decent size. I've stayed at many places in south beach but this will be my new go to!

    Ducked in for a film industry networking gig and was very impressed with the lobby lounge, patio, bar, event, decor, and service!

    Admittedly I was only there for an hour or so of small and shop talk, and some cocktails, but the drinks we great and I loved the decor in the lobby. Very cool!

    The service was excellent and the cocktails were fresh and inspired. I will be back as a hotel guest, soon, revised review to follow.

    Cabeza OUT!

    This place was clean and eclectic.  I liked the art though random and the room was great though small. Staff was friendly.  I would give them a 5 star.

    Two areas for improvement are: 1) the breakfast wasn't so great. The coffee was very weak and there was nothing exciting about it.  2) getting a spot with an umbrella at the beach was easy enough but the guy in charge wouldn't put it up for us as he said his boss said not to. Other resorts had umbrellas up. It was due to the wind. They should have tied them down.

    What a delight!  This place is comfy, stylish, chic. The staff is friendly and helpful.

    I like the fact that the hotel is a little further south of most of the noise and hoopla on Ocean ( more quiet) , yet easily accessible. Fairly close to the new South Pointe Park area (great for walking and sunset viewing).

    Lord Balfour hits all my required notes!
    -amazing air conditioning
    -super shower
    -comfy bed
    -clean, upscale without being pretentious

    This place is a gem!

    Let's just start by saying I waited until the last minute to book my room for the Memorial Day weekend. I found a great deal on Expedia for two nights and the Trip Advisor reviews were glowing.  When I arrived, "Richard" greeted me and made small talk. At first it was pleasant but then started getting awkward when he  asked me where I stayed in my home state.. I think I'll redirect the conversation. Noooo, I'll just sit with my cousin on the sofas and stare at the artwork. I will say, the lobby was visually appealing with paintings and sculptures literally protruding from the walls and on the ceiling.

    Upon check-in , I was informed there was a $100 hold per night (yes, every night) and after reading the agreement, there's an $18 resort fee per day. Yep! Didn't see THAT on Expedia. After all that was done, Richard walked me to my room on the 4th floor.  (Sn: there are only four floors and the hotels don't seem to be wheelchair accessible so prepare to bump your luggage up the stairs if you're on the 2nd floor.)  get this, after Richard let me in, he gave me a grand tour of my 100 sq. ft. space. "Here is the mini bar. Here is the closet behind this curtain. Here is the bathroom.." My cousin and I couldn't help but  make those awkward (are you kidding me) faces at each other. The room is a square but thank you...

    After he left, I took the obligatory selfie in the bathroom and of course some pics of the tattooed woman on the wall behind the bed, splashed my face with water, and hit the beach.

    When I got back, the two things that stood out to me were the stains on the white bed coverlet and urine drip on the toilet seat. My mind went straight to those  Dateline/ 20/20 exposés. Get another room you'd say and typically I would but at hour, I was just trying to change so I could go dance and 1. I don't sleep on the sheets. I use one of those travel sleep sacks (just google it) and 2. Every surface gets a Clorox wipe before I use it regardless of housekeeping. Clearly this time they didn't do the greatest job.

    The continental breakfast is the typical croissant, yougurt, and fruit. The beach is across the street. The nightlife is at least 6 blocks away but for me it was a good thing bc the hotel and my room were quiet. There were plenty of dining options within walking distance and I met some really cool people.

    Yes the rooms are small but in the end, you probably didn't go to south beach to go to the hotel. It had everything I needed: bed, shower, and bagels for breakfast.  Would I stay again? Meh.. Maybe

    Pros:
    1. Affordable (relative to other hotels).
    2. Staff is helpful and accommodating. My aunt and uncle came to visit us while staying here and the bellman was kind enough to park their car for free.
    3. Quite (er). Very little noise from outside, however, walls are thin so you can hear conversations in the hallway and the staff knocking on the door at 8ish in the morning with a shrill "housekeeping" followed by "mini bar" a few hours later.
    4. Visually appealing hotel with interesting decor.

    Cons:
    1. Resort fee of $18/day that basically includes dry cereal, 7-eleven mini muffins, and wi-fi. They have a small bar where the "breakfast" is served. Drinks are NOT included in resort fee.
    2. Introductory tour. We got in at 2:00 am from an extremely delayed flight and the gentleman who took us to our room proceeded to give us a tour of a room the size of a postage stamp. "Here's the safe", "Here's the bathroom", "Here's the TV remote".  A nice attempt at making us feel welcome but very unnecessary. Come on guys - context. We were exhausted and eager to pass out.
    3. No frills. At all. Do not expect pool, cabana, or anything above basic accommodation.
    4. Very small bathroom. If you are a female (or a male) with make-up and toiletries - get creative. I relocated most of the bathroom items to make room for the essentials - toothpaste, contact solution, etc.

    The take away. Would stay again, but would rather pay a smidge more for an upgraded hotel.

    Amazing service, beautiful boutique hotel in a great location. Rooms were decently sized, clean and comfortable. Funky decor. The resort fee covers breakfast and chairs and umbrellas at the beach one block away. It's in a quiet Art Deco area, but within walking distance to everything. The only complaint is that the bathrooms are TINY and soundproofing, not so much. Heard too much noise from our neighbors. Still highly recommend a stay here, great value.
