The Kent Hotel
Ranked #98 of 212 Hotels in Miami Beach
Reviewed 28 April 2012

Great location, near to the beach and Espanola Way. Good conciege was very helpful. Housekeeping service was haphazard at best, but the bed and towels were clean. If you want a smoking room, be sure to take your own ashtray (the hotel has smoking rooms but does not supply ashtrays.)

Dear Guest, thank you for the positive review, I would just like to mention that the hotel does carry ash trays and should any guest need one we would be more than happy to provide one, I'm not sure what occurred during your stay to make you think we did not carry them, but we apologize for any inconvenience it might have caused.

A few of us took my cousin for her birthday to Miami for the weekend back in December. We couldn't have asked for a better hotel. The price was right up our alley and the location was great. Walking distance to a lot of great places including the beach. I had read a couple of reviews that mentioned Francois and I must say, he lived up to all the great things I read! He helped us organize nights out that left us with nothing much to do except have a great time. The hotel was very accomodating and the staff was fantastic. We loved it so much that now we're going back this weekend for my own birthday!

Me and a few girlfriends stayed at the Kent for 4 days recently and we had a blast. The room was clean and up to date. I loved the fact the bathroom had one of those stretch out magnifying mirrors because that really helped when it was time to put on makeup! My only complaint about the hotel is that the room we were in was small and the the elevator was difficult to maneuver with large suitcases. It was 4 of us in a room. it was JUST ENOUGH space for all of us. We did have to shimmy past the little table that was sticking out over the fridge. However, I knew the room wasn't going to be huge, but that little ledge made it very difficult to get our luggage past it. The location of the hotel was excellent, we just walked a block over and we were on ocean dr. The front desk guy, Jose, he became our bff! He was awesome. He let us do an early check in and a late checkout. He was very helpful with everything and he made our experience there a joy. He recommended to us a great Cuban restaurant. I also appreciated how housekeeping was on top of it. You know how some hotels housekeeping never knocks on your door, they knocked on our door every morning to clean the room. We didn't eat at the restaurant there, but they did play good music. Overall I was very pleased with my stay at the Kent hotel and I would stay there again.

Dear Guest, thank you for the great review, our rooms are an average size for most boutique hotels in South Beach, and actually larger than others as they are roughly between 350sq. ft. to 400sq. ft., but we will concur that for four people with lots of bags space can be tight - we are glad to know that despite that you were still happy with your overall stay and we welcome you back in the near future!

Front desk could really use some customer service skills. A little smile and politeness goes a long way to your paying customers. The hallway smelled of weed. The sheets had stains on them and the room could definitely have been cleaner. The air conditioner in the room was really loud and the people stomping around/having domestics in the hallway at all hours of the night made it almost impossible to sleep. The location is great but unless you want to party the whole time you're there (you'd need to be drunk and passed out to get a decent night sleep) stay somewhere else.

I have never written a negative review and I've traveled all over Europe/South Pacific. This place was a bad decision.

A few girlfriends and I stayed at the Kent Hotel for a girls weekend and had a blast! We were aiming for a wild weekend in South Beach on a budget, and thats exactly what we got. The hotel staff were super nice and accommodating (heres a special shoutout to Francois, Juan, and the guy with the light eyes!) and the housekeeping staff was hilarious. The hotel is just around the corner from the beach and all the fun bars and clubs in South Beach. If you're looking for something clean, affordable, and conveniently located with a helpful staff, this is it!The rooms are really nice and relatively simple, which worked for us because the time spent in the room was kept to a minimum. We can't wait to plan another trip down to Miami and we will definitely be staying at the Kent. If anyone says otherwise about this place, they are cray cray!
PS- The gyro place across the street is crazy delicious and nights out should definitely end there.
