Spent two weeks touring Miami, Fort Lauderdale and the Keys. Definately kept the best hotel until last.
This hotel is on corner of 4th and Washington and fully deserves good review.
Unfortunately we only stayed here for one night but I am happy to recommend and would return.
We were allocated the disabled room (presumably because it was available). This had large king size bed with luxury linen. There were drawers if you wanted to unpack and a wardrobe containing a safe. Large wall mounted TV and mini bar fridge with plenty room to store your own items.
Shower room with large walk in shower and shower chair against wall (presumably because this was disabled room?), sink and toilet. Quality toiletries and nice soft fluffy towels.
Continental breakfast provided 8am - 10am (later at weekends) with cereal, croissants, muffins, bagels, fruit juice, coffee etc. Toaster and microwave available.
Outdoor seating area with tables, chairs, parasols.
Far enough away from noise of South Beach but only 2 blocks from Ocean Drive and bottom end of Lummus Park
Very helpful reception and happy to keep luggage, arrange taxis etc

I arrived in Miami on an unexpected lay over while traveling. I couldn't find a booking anywhere, and was somewhat sceptical when I found one at Villa Italia Hotel. After I checked in, I didn't know why this place wasn't filled also! Great service, clean, and they go the extra mile compared to other hotels. The continental breakfast was an unexpected luxary, since they didn't advertise or mention it anywhere. I highly recommend it!

Stayed at the Villa Italia for one night because we could not get a room at the hotel we were staying at later in the week. Called and got a special rate over the phone that was 30 dollars lower than what we found online. When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised to find a clean, well appointed room with a king size bed. The room is not large, no surprise since most of the hotels in the South Beach area are older and rooms were not large when these properties were originally built, but the bed is not overpowering the room.

The hotel is eco-friendly. You must put your room key in a slot to keep the power and air conditioning running but the room was not too warm when we arrived and it cooled down quickly. There is a continental breakfast served daily which was well stocked and diverse. The only thing I could remotely complain about is that the free WiFi had too weak of a signal to be very useful, but that could be because we were in the farthest corner of the property.

The hotel is only 3 blocks from the famous (and terrific) Joe's Stone Crab restaurant. I recommend that if you eat there, go next door to the take out area and buy the same food, and either eat it at the tables there, or take it back to the hotel and eat it on the hotel courtyard and do some people watching.

The young man who worked the front desk was helpful and attentive. He is down here from New York, working on his Master's degree and seems to enjoy working at this property. You can use the valet parking, or save a few bucks and park the car on the street with parking meters that can be paid for with a credit card.

All in all, this property is clean, well-appointed, slightly off the beaten path, but close enough to get there in less than 5 minutes. I would certainly stay there again with confidence.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room with strong WiFi signal if that is important to you.

I stayed at Villa Italia Hotel for a week, and I have to say that it has really been a pleasant surprise: rooms were quite big, with very comfortable beds, with an excellent housekeeping service. It is a very private structure, the exact opposite of those opulent and anonymous hotels of 1,000+ rooms you find at the end of Ocean Drive (15-25th street).

The position is excellent: next to 5th street, only a couple of minutes from Ocean Drive and the beach itself. It is also, in my opinion, much quieter at night than other fancy zones north of 5th.

Special mention to the staff, that is what really makes the difference: extremely kind and helpful for any request, from advice on car rental to hardware shops for adapters, to directions for visiting the Everglades Park, etc.
Really, Michael and the others have always been willing to give us a hand.

Wi-Fi is included and the continental breakfast was simple but in my opinion complete (fruit, donuts, hot beverages, cereals, juice.. but - especially for Italians - do NOT expect white-gloves service with 200 varieties of biscuits and brioches - this is not what "continental breakfast means!!).

Recommended for sure!
