Lord Balfour, a refreshing take on South Beach boutique hotels, is situated directly on Ocean Drive, just south of Fifth Street. The neighborhood, better known as "SoFi" to the South Beach locals, is a relaxing oasis in the heart of the Art Deco District. The hotel's Ocean Drive location is in close proximity to the city's ever growing arts and culture scene. Miami Beach's turquoise waters are just steps from the hotel, and shopping, restaurants, and South Beach's dazzling nightlife are all within walking distance. Lord Balfour's 64 rooms and suites are a refreshing take on South Beach hotels, designed with clean, modern lines, and incorporating a distinctive allure. From bamboo hardwood floors to luxurious ETRO Bathroom products, Lord Balfour offers a full array of boutique hotel comforts for the ultimate South Beach experience. Public spaces have been transformed: chic vintage style merges with art deco in a thoroughly modern setting. An expansive veranda facing Ocean Drive provides a perfect place to people watch while enjoying a refreshing beverage from the lobby bar. An interior palm courtyard provides a more tranquil retreat to enjoy a morning coffee or evening cocktail.

Starting January 15, 2014 - A $18 resort fee will be due at time of checkin which includes Continental breakfast for two, Internet and 2 Beach chairs.

Great weekend stay!

The rooms are a bit small, restroom is tiny, but it's still a great place to stay in South Beach! No pool, but not needed when you have the beach within walking distance. Great staff, very attentive to all our needs!

Just close enough to (and far enough from) the craziness

On Ocean Blvd., but a 3-minute walk from the South Beach craziness and noise -- nice to be able to jump in and out of it whenever you want. Rooms are Europe-style small, but immaculately clean, and very comfortable. Staff is friendly and helpful, from the housekeeping to the concierge, and everywhere in between. Commitment to art in the rooms and lobby/bar/breakfast area is a major plus. Outside seating areas for drinks and breakfast also great. Beach chairs/umbrellas a 1-minute walk away. Ideally situated between crazy South Beach strip and quieter but still vacation-y SoFi area. Go to My Ceviche for perfect stay-and-eat!

My Ceviche is a hole-in-the-wall shack a few blocks away, next to the hostel. Not even a place to sit, except for a bench and a few chairs outside. But... the best ceviche and grilled-octopus tacos! Also, Bolivar -- great food, great space, great entertainment.

Amazing!

The staff at this hotel are wonderful, helpful and willing to go out if their way to make your stay perfect. The location is fantastic! About 1min walk to the beach. With sunbeds reserved everyday for hotel guests, free wifi, free breakfast and two for one cocktails during the week, this hotel is outstanding. I couldn't recommend it enough.

Don't get caught out by the $45 cocktails along the strip. Try eating elsewhere, the hotel has a list if great restaurants to try.

New year on south beach

Hotel Balfour is in a great location, a couple of blocks south of where things start to get a little crazy. Staff can't do enough for you and whilst the rooms aren't the biggest we had a fantastic stay and will definitely be back

Nice but small

I knew from the other reviews I had read that the rooms were going to be small, but I did not imagine them being this small! BUT if you are in Miami then you probably won't be in your room much. Other than that it was very clean, staff was nice, and location was great.
