Small hotel in an excellent location

Posted Apr 16, 2015
A small unassuming hotel well located on Collins Avenue, South Beach. Our room had twin Queen beds and was light and airy, with a simple modern green/white color scheme, a fridge with freezer box (which is handy as there isn't an ice maker) and a microwave, along with a coffee maker, cups, glasses and cutlery. Our room was on the ground floor only yards from the sidewalk along a gated passageway which afforded a good degree of noise from the party atmosphere of South Beach. Only Negative is, if you choose the Expedia offer of "free airport shuttle" be aware this only applies "to" the hotel. It actually costs $15 for one or $24 for two " to" the airport. Overall, we would definitely use the Riviere again for Miami South Beach.

Not as nice as the pictures show.

Posted Apr 16, 2015
Pros: Breakfast was great.
Cons: Reduce the price.
Location: Very expensive drink..
It's a lot smaller then it looks. Kids were put upstairs from us and they were jumping around. No parking. Very expensive for what you get.

Good location

Posted Apr 16, 2015
Pros: Location was good, walk to beach was just under 5 or so minutes.
Cons: The shower head, it was terrible.
We happened to book (unknowingly) when the gay pride parade was on. We were in the room on second floor facing the street, must say with a 5 year old it was terrible for sleeping. I wish more consideration had been made when booking with a child and put a family to the rear of the hotel. We felt safe here as there is a gate, many wackys walking around as it got later. 15 minute walk to Lincoln Road which was great for food and shopping Pizza Rustica I think it was, was great! It was an okay stay, not great.

Great location, comfortable!

Posted Mar 28, 2015
The hotel was very nice and comfortable. It was the perfect location/distance from the beach. It was close enough to leave and return whenever you wanted, but enough distance away so you could get a peace of mind if u want to relax. The staff were very polite, although they missed cleaning out room one day because we had not left out by 3pm. Its an apartment style hotel, you get an actual key to your room and to the front gate. Staff very nice gave us beach chairs and towels for the beach and let us park our mopeds on the property inside the gate. Overall, Id recommend this hotel

Ghetto

Posted Mar 27, 2015
We booked 2 hotel rooms for 3 nights. When we got to the hotel it just looked run down, when we walked into our room it was not clean and smelled like mold. I went down and got the manager and tool him to the room. He thought it was clean and smelled fine where it stuck extremely bad. My pregnant wife would not stay in the moldy room and I sure did not want too. They showed us abother room that smelled of mold even worse. There were air gaps in all 3 rooms around the ac units so bad you could clearly see the outside. The coffe cups were not cleaned at all. The showers had mildew stain all down them. To top it all off they refused to give me money back. I called Expedia and told them about the situation. Expedia did what they could for me and I had to pay for a night in each room because the hotel said I was staying the night there alltho I gave the hotel the keys back and left the hotel hours before they talked to Expedia and even booked a hotel in Fort Lauderdale the same night. I strongly recommend not staying here they compleatly ripped me off

Pros: I mostly picked this hotel for the location, which was a big bonus for this hotel, as well as the decent price for a suite-style room.
Location: The beach was only maybe three blocks away, very close. When we arrived too early for check-in, we just stayed at the beach and went to a restaurant.
A group of four of us stayed here for two nights before going on a cruise. Location had great walkability around the 'busier' parts of South Beach while not being on the main strip. The room was clean with two queen beds, a good sized modern-style bathroom with a nice shower, a kitchenette, and a seating area/sofa. It was just a simple suite-style hotel room, nothing super fancy but was clean and had just enough space for the four of us. There are no elevators though, so even though we were only on the second floor we had a pretty crazy time getting our luggage upstairs. Check-in was easy, and they kindly let us keep our luggage by the front desk while they got our room ready.

This place feels more like a guest house than a hotel, but it was quiet and the wifi was great, which was what I needed. The entire hotel staff was very nice.

I am really angry about this hotel!!!

Posted Mar 20, 2015
I checked in MARCH 9th, and find the room is really small and a little dirty, so I asked the front desk to cancel my reservation for next two days and he said there would be no penalty. But when I decide to check out on 10th, they told me there will be one day fee penalty for my cancellation. How could things like this happen! I am really angry about this worst service. I will never recommend any friends to go there!
