We stayed 12 days at this hotel and will stay here again on our next visit ! The rooms were beautiful and clean, loved all the storage for personal belongings , long wall of cabinetry behind doors, which kept the room clean and sleek ! But the staff is what really makes this hotel special to us. Outstanding service !! We met as guest and staff, but left as friends, we will miss Antonio and Pao especially. You guys are the best💕. Wonderful stay with a roof top infinity pool and bar!

This building now belong to another hotel chain but IKONIK didn't tell us anything (us or to expedia) so when we arrived our payed reservation didn't exist either... Luckly for us expedia moved us to another hotel but we had to spend a few hours on the phone trying to contact them. Terrible!

I stayed at this hotel in February of 2020 and checked out early March (10 days). Overall the hotel was good BUT I was overcharged over 500.00USD on check-in. The hotel claimed local taxes. I check my reservation details once I got settled and realized my reservation had all the local taxes included. The check-in staff admitted their error but had charged my credit card the full amount of the stay event though there was only 24 hour check out notice. The manager assured me I would get a refund yet it has been 6 weeks since I check out. They wanted my personal bank account information to deposit money which sounds suspicious. I paid by Visa, yet they claimed they could not refund my Visa (suspicious). I gave them my e-transfer e-mail and direct deposit account. Nothing...The manager has gone quite BEWARE AND DOUBLE CHECK YOUR INVOICE CONCERNING LOCAL TAXES CLAIM BEFORE CHECKING IN, YOU WILL NOT BE REFUNDED IF THE HOTEL IS IN ERROR

Wasn't sure what to expect but the pictures looked cool. When I arrived, It looked just like the pictures! The room was nice and clean and the bed was comfortable. A small disappointment was the "partial ocean view". It was mostly blocked by the funky facade on the front of the building. The rooftop pool/deck is nice but small and has an amazing view. It was awesome to have breakfast right on the beach. The location is perfect if you want to wander on 5th avenue. What really stood out for me was the staff. I wish I could remember everyones name but everybody I came in contact with was friendly, cheerful and helpful. A special shout out to CARMEN and ELI. Their cheerful smiles made each day special and made it hard for me to leave. I will go back again one day!
