Great hotel, wonderful location and amazing price ! =)

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.
