Cons: The air-conditioner is blowing right into your face and there is no way to adjust it. I have to turn if off.
They charged me 4.95 for a bottle of Evian water (no other water in room), which was fine coz there was a price tag on the bottle. However, they charged me twice. So I spent almost $10 for a bottle of "luxury" water. The first time I called them, they said they will revert the double charge but they did not. I have to call the second time and someone like a manager picked up my call and said he would refund it. Let's see.

Friendly Service & Wonderful Stay

Posted Nov 22, 2017
Pros: Location, beach access, decor, bar, garden, friendly and helpful staff.
Cons: Minor cosmetic maintenance? The wall paper in our room had some gouges in it, and one of the glasses provided in the bathroom had a crack. Very minor.
Location: Right in the middle of Miami Beach, easy access to downtown or South Beach, and the beach nearby was lovely (not even a half block walk).
The staff at Circa 39 was wonderful throughout our entire stay. We flew in via a red eye, and they were actually able to get us checked into our room early (8:30 a.m. vs. 3:00 p.m.) so we could get a nap and freshen up before hitting the beach. We loved the Wunder Bar and Wunder Garden, and beach access is very easy. There are a few great restaurants nearby, and we did enjoy dinner at Jules' Cafe downstairs one evening as well. Overall, the decor was cute, easy-breezy and fun, the room comfortable and clean, and the staff outstanding.

Great location hotel !

Posted Nov 20, 2017
The hotel was very pleasant looking. I enjoyed their beach decor. I would prob stay here again because the price was great and service was good. The only problems I encountered was getting bit by something in the middle of the night. Not sure if it was bedbugs. And another day I woke up with a water pipe broken in my room. It was flooding so we had to pack and go to the sweete which was bigger.

The pictures on the website are misleading. The walls are paper thin and you can hear everything around you. The hotel staff was great, no complaints there. I wish I would have known that parking was so difficult as we had to get up at 1 am everyday to feed the meter because of the parking limit only allowing you to pay for 3 hours at a time at $3 an hour. It got pricey. And it's not on the beach like it shows. You have to cross the street and walk a minute to get there. I won't stay at this hotel again.

Anniversary Celebration

Posted Oct 26, 2017
Pros: Clean, comfortable and quaint. Like a boutique hotel.
Cons: No charge Parking Lot
Location: Beach across the street - Free Trolley to get to places - small convenience store/Deli beside the hotel.
My husband and I flew down from Toronto for the weekend to celebrate our Anniversary. We love Miami...especially South Beach. The hotel was perfect. Small and Cozy. The only complaint I have is that it was much further from Ocean Drive-Art Deco strip then I had anticipated. I was told by someone at the hotel that it was just a 15 minute walk. My husband and I tried to walk it but it we were unsuccessful in reaching Ocean Drive because it was too far. Circa 39 is on 39th street and Ocean Drive is 6th/7th street (32 blocks away). Needless to say, we had a great time. I highly recommend this hotel and booking through Expedia.

An average hotel

Posted Oct 19, 2017
An average hotel with a claustrophobic room and with an equally small bathroom. Even room is low on furnitures to keep our stuffs. I can’t say it’s bad but I can continue say lot of things which are just average considering $120 per night cost including $16 resort charges ( I am astonished to see them charging that when even their pool was not in working condition ).

Dear samik, Thank you for choosing Circa 39 Hotel for your home away from home. From your feedback regarding the pool, it looks like you may have stayed with us right after hurricane Irma. Please know that the pool was only down for about 5 days and everything is back to normal. The hotel fee also includes beach chairs for registered guests as well as unlimited WIFI in every guestroom and public areas, local and toll- free calls and daily newspaper in the lobby. You will find this to be a standard fee for hotels in the area and the ones that do not have a hotel fee charge for WIFI, beach chairs, etc. individually. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back next time that your travels bring you back to Miami Beach. Warm regards,
