Photos and Description of this South Beach holiday studio

Privately owned Condo-Hotel With King Bed on Ocean Drive

Ocean Drive unit that is Modern and spacious in the heart of South Beach!

Step outside and the beach is directly across the building. Restaurants, shops and night life are all literally outside your door along Ocean Drive. Walk everywhere, with no need for taxis or rental vehicles. Lincoln Road is also a 5 minute walk from this location. South Beach consists of a large geographic area, but only a small part of it has all the shops/restaurants/night life – THIS IS IT!

This renovated privately owned unit with spectacular mahogany wood floors is at the congress Condo Hotel on Ocean Drive. This large studio has a full bathroom with tub,king size bed,sleeper futon, and kitchen. The suite is a hip oasis of comfort and delight in a hot South Beach hotel in the middle of the action.Walk across the street to the beach. Enjoy the hotel amenities without paying the hotel prices. sit on the balcony and enjoy the ocean breezes and perfect for morning coffee. No extra fees such as a resort fee which many hotels add to the bill.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The location is great. If you are a light sleeper then this isn't the place for you as it is near some bars. Checking in and out was simple. The bathroom did appear to have some mold on the ceiling and we brought our own towels which was good because there were maybe 2 towels in the apartment. Overall a good experience and Benjamin was very quick to answer any questions. He even recommended places to park tips of asking about the prices of items at local bars.

Awesome studio in the heart of south beach

  • 5 of 5

This studio was perfect for our mini getaway. It was spacious, clean and comfortable with the beach right across the street. It was great to go downstairs and enjoy all of what south beach had to offer. The nightlife at your doorstep. Thank you Benjamin! I look forward to booking with you again.

Not what I expected

  • 1 of 5

The property is in a prime location right across from the beach, however it needs major upkeeping. There is a moldy smell coming from the vents. The room stood damp at all times and even my dry clothes felt wet, so good luck even trying to dry wet ones. There is mold on the bathroom ceiling and the shower curtains definitely need to be changed. The curtains for the apartment are see through at night so everyone can see what you're doing as they walk by. The floor in the kitchen was coming apart and the dishes were dirty and cloudy. The patio furniture is all rusted and the beach chairs were dirty / broken. There was only one open roll of toilet paper and when we asked for extra at the congress hotel they told us no because it's a private unit. Understandable this is a private unit, but it should have more than one roll of toilet paper. My only pro was the location.

This place was simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I went to Miami for a anniversary trip with my mate. This place was very affordable & has a perfect location. Before the trip any & every question I had was answered in a timely manner. We arrived around 9pm, the front desk was friendly & helped us find our room. The condo was very spacious & had everything we needed for 5 days. There are a couple cosmetic updates that need to be done but nothing major at all. The balcony had an amazing view of the ocean & is a great place to dry all of your wet clothes. The location couldn't have been better. The beach is literally on the opposite side of the street & every restaurant that you could think of was literally on the sidewalk outside the hotel doors. Everything was so close that I only uber'd twice in 5 days (once to go downtown Miami & once to go to the nude beach) lol. No complaints at all. If & when I come back to Miami, I will definitely rent this place again. It's more space than you would get in a hotel room, at half the price.

Wonderful but a few things

  • 4 of 5

I was very inpressed with the condo. The location was perfect. The room was very clean the bedding was clean and so was the pillows and towels. However their were wooden slacks that needed to be glue to the floor by the kitchette part. One of the table legs was very wobbly. The shower curtain liner need to be change before another guest come, as well as the mold by the shower head. These things are very minor compared to the location,price and, cleanliness of the property.

Thank you Benjamin we enjoyed ourselves.
