Reviewed 27 May 2012

Comfortable, quiet and clean with friendly, helpful staff. It was a 10min walk to the beach and bus stops are nearby, as are a few nice restaurants.
Not a traditional hotel (breakfast is a help-yourself to muffins and eat on the patio arrangement) but I can't fault this place. Lovely soap/shampoo provided! Overall great value in a very expensive area!

I stayed here in 1950 with my parents. It was then known as the Harman Villa and was run by Mrs. Harman and her sister Freda . Both of these fine ladies appeared to be 75 or better.
Freda made banana bread and was oh so good. I learned to play canasta(a card game) with Freda as my partner. We stayed there for one month in August and enjoyed every minute of it.

My father was assigned to Miami Beach for basic training in 1942 and stayed there and other hotels in Miami Beach. He told Mrs. Harmon he would return some day and he did.
In later years in was known as the Argiro Villa with Domonic and Pauline Argiro as owners and again we stayed and enjoyed. Pauline used to make a fantastic pasta. We were like family.

I am so happy to see it has survived and is the same stucture. Congratulation to the Villa and may God bless..
Oh I had to put a date when I traveled so disregard June 2011.

Room Tip: We used to stay on the second level using two front rooms so we could get the breeze from the ocean...

I literally looked for weeks trying to find a reasonably priced hotel in the area that didn't have bugs, broken ac, and leaks....I went with this hotel after reading the reviews. I was not disappointed! This little place is great! Within walking distance to the beach, ocean drive and it's restaurants, and clubs (although in heels it was rough :) ) while being very quiet. The place was very clean with a great little bathroom. Our double-double room was small, but we didn't spend much time there anyways so not a problem at all. It may be rough for 4 with luggage though. Coffee and breakfast were not gourmet, but offered enough. We utilized the valet service and had no problems with car retrieval. The beach towels and umbrella available for guests to utilize were a nice bonus to our stay. I would stay here again.

This is newly renovated hotel! The location is off the main strip in quiet neighborhood which means you can have good night sleep. Just 3 min. away from the beach and restaurants. There is a bus outside the door that runs a loop around South Beach and is only 0.25 cents! Staff was really helpful and nice. Great rooms. I would recommend this hotel!

This is no 5 star place but really great. Very clean, big rooms and bathroom and the staff is excellent!It is 2 blocks from Ocean Drive - which means it is quiet but only 2 mins walk from the beach, restaurants and bars.
