We had the Kandinsky appartment with 3 people. The room was spacious and they had a great wifi-connection. The location is 5-star! 1 block from Ocean's Drive and nearby all the great shops! If we go back we certainly will check if these appartments are available.

We stayed in Jetset Franklin during our honeymoon and a very nice experience. Jetset is very close to Ocean Drive/ center of Miami Beach. The room was very clean. Decortaion is very modern/ colorful. People working in Jetset were also very helpful & nice. They left a champagne to our room to celebrate us.

We only had one night before boarding a Cruise. We are so pleased we stayed here as it was quiet and very convenient to all the action! It was very modern with kitchen amenities. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

We stayed here a few weeks ago and had a great time. The location is perfect; as close to the beach as you can get. Our room was very clean and the people who worked here were super friendly. Great place to stay!

We spent there three nights. The apartments have everything, they are modern, clean, and beautiful. They have everything you need to make your stay comfortable -beach towels, wonderful kitchen, nice bathroom, etc. The staff is very kind and helpful. The location, on Collins Ave, is great. We rented a car and had a garage for free only one block from...

This is an excellent choice for anyone wanting to be close to the action but enjoy an unusual (but in my opinion superb) hotel that gives all the comfort of an apartment: the rooms are located on the second and third floor of a building, which houses the Replay store on the ground floor. You need to call reception from...

Stayed there for WrestleMania 28 (1st April 12). Very nice apartment, modern, nice staff. 1 street away from Ocean Drive, very busy area and obviously loud at night but other than that brilliant and would stay there again.

Noise control in South Beach, dochas, is a gargantuan task. 'The night is young' is a mantra that best illustrates the comings and goings of many locals and visitors alike. We do our best to ensure that our building stays as quiet as possible and that all guests are able to relax accordingly. The case cannot be said for all...
