The Penguin Hotel Miami
5 out of 5

It is a simple hotel, no pool, the rooms are decent size, but they are fashion, LCD TV, nice bath and confy beds. The staff are amazing, really patient, respectful,friendly... The internet was fast and breakfast was good. The location was perfect for the price. There's a park in front of the hotel and the ocean right after. Also, there's a lot of bars and restaurants on the same street. Lincon avenue is 7min walking distance. If you are planing to save money and stay in south beach, this place is perfect. You don't need to rent car, the hotel was cheap , the ocean is right in front of the hotel.

The place seems to be leaking all over and smells musty. In the room the wall paper was peeling off from moisture damage. Also did not like the $15 "Resort Fee" they hit you up with on top of your Orbizt bill for use of a beach towel. Rip off.

very. very expensive for what you get. Hidden cost for Valet parking $ 32.00 per day...Resort charge $ 15.00 a day. Orbiz should check tis hotel to see if you should keep it on your list.

Pro's: Location! This is a great location right on the more quiet end of the strip. It's steps from a Starbucks and like all the other places on Ocean, it's right on the beach. Staff - All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were cleaned pretty well, although it seems they clean the rooms later than normal... Cost - Great value for the money. Con's: Room Size - This is not a suite! The rooms are pretty darn small. As long as you're ok with close quarters, it's fine. Just don't expect to have much space... Breakfast - they offer a voucher for breakfast at their sister hotel, the President. Breakfast consists of corn flakes and toast... Literally. All in all, it was a successful stay! I'd stay here again.

Small boutique hotel so can't compare with the high rise resorts for facilities but great location (Ocean drive and 14th street)

First room we got was a small, smelling hole. Smell was mold, because there were no ventilation - no fresh air to the room. We complained for that smell and got a better room. The restaurant ( which has rented premises ) let pidgeons eat remains from your plate. Prime location on Ocean Drive, but a shoddy execution. Owner of the hotel, older lady, parks her mercedes 500 SLE to slot in front of hotel and let's you carry your baggage from further away. Nice customer care. Something positive too: spanish(?)lady in reseption, useally in dayshift. Nice and willing to try to help. If you must stay in this hotel, there's a Starbucks near. Good coffee and not annoying waiters.
