I really liked how they treated us, breakfast was good, the mattress was really comfortable and I slept very well. Also, at night we didn't hear noise at all, it was very quiet and relaxing. The location of the hotel is perfect, it takes one minute waling to the beach.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed a quick Thanksgiving getaway at Lord Belfour. The room was comfortable and very Miami chic at reasonable prices. The location could not have been better. It is walking distance to great restaurants like Joe's Stone Crab, Red the steakhouse and Prime 112 as well as the Ocean Blvd. Strip which is great for happy hour... More

Everything was great: the room, the breakfast, the staff, the beach with towel and umbrella and the price is very fair for Miami Beach. The only negative point was that we heard pretty much everything that happened upstairs and in the floor. There are construction just near the hotel which is fine during the weekend but become annoying when they... More

I traveled on business to Miami and stayed in Lord Balfour two nights. The hotel met exactly my expectations, good area, everything is nearby, but quiet enough to rest while in the hotel. Restaurant was great, and the staff incredibly helpful!

This hotel is very good. It offers a perfect location in Miami Beach. It is quite at night (so you can rest comfortably) and it is 5 minutes walking from nightclubs. The employees were very friendly, speaking English, Spanish and French if necessary. WiFi is free. A lot of amenities (soaps, towels, water, chocolates, etc.) in the rooms. Little breakfast... More

We stayed two nights during the week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is one of the original small tourist class deco hotels that has been fully restored. The restoration is not true to its art deco roots, but is very pleasant. Clean, new renovations, and a friendly and helpful staff made our stay a very nice one.

This Hotel is at the south end of South Beach. This means that it's relatively quiet whilst still being close enough for all the action. The seating area outside is exceptionally comfortable without having waiters ask you constantly whether you needed another drink. The rooms themselves were nicely fashioned. My only complaint is that noise insulation wasn't as good as... More
