Attraktives Hotel unmittelbar in Strandnähe

Posted Nov 26, 2016
Pros: Trotz der zentralen Lage ist es in der Nacht ruhig (wir hatten ein Zi. zum "Hinterhof"). Der Ausblick war nicht der Knaller, aber schlafen konnten wir
Cons: Eine Bedienungsanleitung für die Technik wäre schön.
Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Das Hotel liegt unmittelbar in Strandnähe unweit aller attraktiven Punkte in Miami Beach. In der Nähe gibt es Supermärkte, Bushaltestellen um eventuell nach Miami zu fahren oder zu einer Shoppingmall.

Weekend Get-Away

Posted Nov 3, 2016
Location: Check out Flamingo Park, walk to the Regal Movie Theatre, and of course, sit by the ocean.
I enjoyed my stay at The Marlin for the most part. I was put off by the fact that the front door was locked all day long and that you needed your room key card to open it when you wanted to come in. The concierge said it was for "safety", but as a single woman, I never felt unsafe either at the hotel or in the streets surrounding it. It felt like 'code' for "protecting you from the homeless Black and Brown men in the area". My room was quite clean; however, it was so small that although I had come to SOBE to relax and nap, I felt compelled to get out of my room so that I could have space. While there is much to see (& critique) in the area, I didn't want to have be out and about--I wanted to rest and lounge in my room when I wanted. Last concern was the room was not soundproofed. While I didn't complain about it, because I know some poor sod was just doing his job, I kept hearing someone working and it sounded as if they were going to bang through my ceiling at times during the day.

Greit rooms for a familie of four! And others.

Posted Oct 28, 2016
Location: Close to Miami beach, Flamingo park, all the resturants at and around Espanola way and close to shopping at Lincon road!
Small boutique hotell, only 14 rooms, in the art deco district south beach. The reception area is decorated as one would axpect in the art deco area. Check in was a breeze. Very effective. The hotell has an elevator, art deco style of course. The room was really great. Spacious, clean and diveded into a living area and a bedroom area. Both areas had its own tv-set. The bathroom was diveded into two rooms. One with lots of counterspace and one with a rainfall shower. Both parts had a sink and all this made it the perfect room for a family with 2 children. Nice touch with remote operated curtains. We experianced the location to be more quite than expected, at collins ave closed to miami beach and Ocean drive. Some street noise but it did not disturbed us at all and we were staying at the second floor. The hotellstaff was amazing. Really helpful and they made us feel really at home during our stay at The Marlin hotel. Breakfast was good. Not the biggest selection but what was offered was very good. Especially the freshcut fruit and the bagel selection was great.

Petit hôtel sympa dans Miami Beach

Posted Oct 23, 2016
Pros: Qualité de la literie et le linge fourni
Cons: Bruit de la ventilation ( nous l'avons éteinte). De toute façon il faisait trop froid
Location: Tout à proximité puisque dans Miami Beach
Environnement calme, petit déjeuner correct (offert). Super wifi. Personnel convivial et excellentes prestations : propreté et équipements de dernière génération. Avons apprécié les lumières et les rideaux automatiques 😀. Et puis au calme!!!!

Great boutique hotel

Posted Oct 21, 2016
We arrived at 10 am and they accommodated us with an early check in within 30 mins. The hotel is located in the heart of South Beach so we were able to walk around during the wait time. Our room was very clean and comfortable for us, a couple celebrating their first wedding anniversary. FYI, In our room, part of the shower wall was made of glass that connected to the bedroom. The staff was very pleasant and professional. As mentioned the hotel is in a great location 1 block away from the beach and located on Collins Ave a much calmer scene than Ocean Drive.

Recently remodeled hotel Ideally located

Posted Sep 18, 2016
Beautifully renovated with a lot of attention to details making stay really comfortable and a pleasant experience. The bathroom is fantastic and the addition of a daytime bed to watch TV is a wonderful idea. Our room on 3rd floor was very quiet.

Beach perfection

Posted Sep 6, 2016
The Marlin Hotel on South Beach was one of the biggest, nicest hotels I have ever experienced at any south beach property. Very large room, ultra contemporary but warm woods to complement the light cool walls and floor to ceiling drapes, and glass enclosed bathroom and shower for a bit of fun and natural light.
