Very close to the south Miami Beach. Very clean and spacious rooms. Very courteous staff. Breakfast variety not very good and can improve. It is located on the 12th Street , Collins Avenue which is a very happening street. Close to many other restaurants and pubs.

This hotel is just metres from the beach and close by there are hundreds of restaurants to choose from. Our room was nice and spacious although no views was comfy and quiet. Breakfast was good, the girls very helpful. Overall the staff was always willing to assist. Very good atmosphere. Really recommend

This is a gem of a hotel located on the corner of Collins Avenue and 12th roughly 100 metres from the beach across Ocean Dv. Hotel was clean, suprisingly quiet for its location, and all the staff exceedingly helpful and friendly. It's a small hotel with around 20 rooms I think and you get the impression it's more personal than... More

The Marlin Hotel is a nice and modern place to stay, very closed to Ocean walk and the beach, in the middle of South Beach. The personal is nice and friendly.

We booked the Marlin Hotel at the last minute following after checking out of a very disappointing hotel in Miami Beach ( I will review that hotel separately).

I liked a lot this hotel, very recommendable. It's in a great location if you want to be close to the beach and restaurants, but not right in the middle. The rooms are really beautiful and with a renovated bathroom.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Marlin Hotel is a considerate combination of history, architecture, modern luxury and style. The cozy and welcoming nature of the hotel coupled with its South Beach location makes it the ultimate destination for those seeking a luxurious beach getaway. Situated amidst the escapade that is South Beach, the hotel is the perfect oceanside hideaway. Guests are just steps away from white sand beaches as well as must-see shopping, dining and nightlife. The hotel has recently been completely renovated and has been committed to preserving the landmark art deco building's architectural dynasty, while providing guests with unparalleled elegance and gracious service. The guestrooms and suites are luxurious and spacious, ranging from 240 to 500 square-feet and redesigned to create a home away from home, heightened by the contemporary style, custom- designed furniture and fixtures, wood floors and serene color palate. The relaxing setting extends to the spa-like bathroom that includes a rainfall shower, unique glass-enclosed wet room and therapeutic pebble floor. Each room offers exquisite attention to detail, from the hand-selected pillows and rugs to the coastal-inspired artwork that is reminiscent of Miami's tropical surroundings. No two rooms are alike but all feature state-of-the-art amenities including a 55" LED TV with surround sound, fully stocked mini bar, luxury linens, custom spa bathrobes and slippers, and blackout drapes with remote control. The hotel also offers thoughtful amenities to ensure that each stay is nothing short of perfection, including a designated maid and turndown service, laundry and dry-cleaning, transportation, complimentary continental breakfast and high-speed wireless internet. The interior of the hotel exudes opulence, while still embodying the energy and style for which it has always been known. ... more   less
