“Simply the Best for Less than the Rest”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

I took my brother to South Beach for his surprise graduation gift (his second time there, my first), and boy what an amazing time. What made it even better was this hotel, it was in a great location, convenient, quiet, clean, spacious, modern, and the staff's friendliness and hospitality blew us away.

It's less than a 5 min walk to the beach, about 2-3 blocks from the happenings (restaurants, bars, etc.) on Collins and Ocean Drive, and the hotel provides beach towels, a mini fridge, and and iPod docking station as well as a safe all for free!

Definitely a must stay for the price conscious, you won't be disappointed, will absolutely consider lodging here again in the future.

One of the best stays in the Art Deco district!!
Very small hotel with 12 rooms, but what a great experience.
Right from the start everything was perfect.
The reception was top-class, Michael did everything to make us feel at home.
He must have gone mad with me, so many questions I had, but it was absolutely no problem for him. He helped us with everything.
We got a spacious and very clean room on the second floor. Housekeeping did a great job.
The breakfast was good and more than enough.
If you want, you vcan get beach towels at the reception and go to the beach , which is only 2 blocks away.
In front of the hotel there is a busstop, that takes you everywhere in South Beach for only 25c.
The hotel is located 2 blocks from Ocean Drive in a quiet neighbourhood and everything is within walking distance. It's a 20 min walk to Lincoln Road , with all it's very good restaurants.
You feel at home from the first moment on. Excellent value and good quality.
We will be back for sure!!

We stayed for a week and it was one of the best hotels we have ever been to. The desk employees were very helpful, friendly and not at all stuffy. The maid service did an immaculate and thorough job like one would expect at a 5-star hotel. The only minor downside was shower only and no tub otherwise the room and bathroom were pretty flawless. I unfortunately left my ipad on the bedside table when we left and they mailed it to me carefully wrapped up. The person I spoke to was very nice about it and didn't seem even slightly annoyed. The sense we got is that they care about doing things right. We plan on staying here again and would recommend it highly.

I stayed here in February 2012 for two nights before taking a cruise. As a solo female traveller, it was a great find and optimal value. It is newly renovated and the rooms are quite comfortable, I slept like a log both nights that I was there. The location is good, and is what I personally look for. It is in a mixed residential-commercial neighboured, and is off the main strip, which means it is quiet. You are very close to the beach, two short blocks away. There is a bus outside the door that runs a loop around South Beach. Perfect, you don't need a car, if you are just exploring the city. A brisk walk to Lincoln Road street mall is 20 minutes away. I would much rather stay in a place like this, than pay $400 a night at one of the hotels on Ocean Blvd. The front desk service was very polite and helpful. For the quality, peacefulness and price, this is a real find in South Beach.

We were there to attend the Sony Ericsson Tennis Tournament and weren't in the room much. However, the room was lovely, a nice size and very quiet. Breakfast was adequate, the coffeemaker was fantastic. Friendly staff and wonderful location. I would recommend to others.

My husband and I stayed here in March this year. We found the location to be perfect, close to all attractions of South Beach. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was simple and adequate. Staff was very helpful in providing information and recommending and also booking tours. I definitly will recommend this hotel to families or young couples or just anyone.

Well, the room is big with even two double beds, the bathroom is great also. Everything was clean.
Just one thing was dissapointing - breakfast. It's not really breakfast...:) they put 1-2 bananas and 1-2 cakes on the reception desc. The coffe machine works just at the breakfast time, that is also not so kind of hotels side.
The guys working on reception are great and help, beach towels are suggested.

kgera, Manager at Villa Italia Hotel, responded to this review, 17 April 2012
Villa Italia would like to thank you for your stay with us here in Miami. Based on your review, it seems that you were provided great service from our agents, and you enjoyed our spacious rooms. Our hotel provides a continental breakfast every morning which includes the following items: milk, orange juice, bananas, apples, oatmeal cookies, cereals, yogurt, bagels, cinnamon rolls, doughnuts, and brownies. The hotel also leaves fruit, snacks, tea and coffee in the front office all day for guests to enjoy. Our coffee machine provides coffee until 5:30, but after that time an agent will brew a pot of fresh coffee for guests upon request.

We offer hotel guests a complimentary breakfast but we certainly don’t expect to supplement the quality of the many amazing breakfast/brunch venues in the vicinity of South Beach. South Beach is a mecca of a cultural melting pot, thus the restaurants located in South beach and particularly in Miami Beach’s SoFi (South of Fifth) neighborhood are some of the best in the country Again, this is simply a convenient and FREE continental breakfast that is no way intended to supplement a 5-star catered and personalized breakfast from a top restaurant.
