Bella, Belleza, Beautiful – a perfect description of this 3-star delightful property, located in a safe part of Miami Beach. I had the pleasure of recently staying on-site and found this hotel clean and comfortable, from the lobby space to the guest rooms. The front-of-house staff were extremely professional and accommodating in every way!
Upon the check-in formality, Natalia extended every courtesy during registration at the front desk. Even the general manager, Yurian, was on-hand with a friendly smile and bi-lingual greeting of ‘hello/hola” – so necessary in this part of ‘latino’ USA! Many guests and tourists checking in and out!
The room was indeed cozy, the bed, comfortable and the amenities, well stocked. The kitchenette had every utensil and basic requirement. There was a microwave, toaster-oven and fridge. The bathroom had an adequate shower size and a flat-screen TV! Free WiFi on-site.
What I most enjoyed was the feeling of safety and assurance when walking near and adjacent to the hotel: just a brisk ten to fifteen minute stroll on Washington Avenue, past the convention center to Lincoln Road, I found many restaurants and coffee shops, small bodegas, boutiques and department stores. Night life – Bars and clubs, also in that area, bustling with locals and tourists alike! Weather a huge plus at 30c/86f and needless to say, plenty of sunshine and balmy nights to explore Miami, including a must visit to Espanola Way – more restaurants to select!
Close by was the famous Versace mansion on Ocean Drive, now a 10 bedroom hotel and five star restaurant. Well worth a look inside and out. (reservations required)
The only transportation i insisted on was Uber from the airport to and from the hotel. Otherwise, there’s a free trolley covering a few blocks along Washington Avenue and adjacent streets, Uber again for longer distances and a good pair of shoes to walk and explore.
This group of hotels has four more. Next time, I must try one of the others.
