I was very apprehensive - it’s always tricky booking a hotel when you have absolutely no idea of area. I am visiting Miami to meet up with my partner of 46 years ago. The minute I arrived I was made to feel SO welcome. We had been upgraded due to an email I’d sent - thoughtful - thank you! The hotel is comfortable and clean and nothing has been too much trouble. The staff are attentive and friendly and as for the pool ........ I am swim training at the moment and it is just perfect - immaculately clean and sizeable. Lovely little gym as well. Thank you, Albion, for making this very special time for me even more special. You have surpassed expectations and I sincerely hope to return. I am in the hospitality trade myself - at the top end - so I am a little discerning. You exceeded my expectations. ❤️❤️ Read less

I very much enjoyed my stay in the hotel, great location, friendly staff and nice room. I left my glasses in the hotel room, Gian the manager is so kind, went above and beyond to help sending it back to me. Thank you! I would definitely stay there again and recommend to everyone.

The hotel is reasonably clean, but dated and in need of renovation. The location of the hotel couldn’t be better, close to all the amenities and the beach.

We stayed here for 4 nights in August 2019.

We stayed here for 4 nights in August 2019. The staff were helpful and friendly and were able to move us after the first night to a better room (as our immediate neighbours next door were very drunk loud for about 1.5 hours at 4:30am and we could hear everything through the locked adjoining door!) Upon talking to the manager first thing the next morning they moved us no problem which we were grateful for as we were told the group of guys were staying for the same amount of time as we were! Over all the location of this hotel is the the main attraction as your right in the hub of south beach, the shops, access to nightlife, beach, ocean drive etc. It’s easy to get around and your right around the corner from Miami tours so can organise any excursions easily and we found that we could eat for cheaper and take advantage of all the happy hours to keep travel costs down in this area! The pool area was lovely and clean and we were able to get a lounger for each of us every day and chill out for a couple of hours. The only real downside to this hotel is that it is definitely ready for a re-furb! The bathrooms especially look tired, paintwork has seen better days and there is a definitely a musty smell when you walk into the lobby which I think must come from the carpets which hopefully will hopefully be replaced soon . However I noticed the hotel was being kept clean on a daily basis by a hard working team and on the whole we enjoyed our stay here in the south beach area. Read less
