My second stay here

This was my second time staying at The Lord Balfour and they have yet to let me down. This place is amazing. The location is perfect, the hotel is beautiful and clean and the staff are very accommodating. I stayed here with friends and as a couple and this hotel was perfect for both. They have made a loyal costumer out of me and I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in a great hotel on south beach for a great price.

Great place for a bachelor

Went to Miami and stayed in a hostel for 3 nights, then Lord Balfour for three nights. Obviously having your own room is nicer, but this place was really cool. Had a great staff and also a cool interior design.

Getaway

Beautiful hotel, great location, and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. Wasn't to content with how thin the walls are you can here people's conversations from the room next door. Other than that would stay again on my next trip.

In good hands

First of all, the staff went way above and beyond expectations. One of managers even saw my husband and I come back fairly early on a Saturday night and OFFER us a late check-out for Sunday, completely unsolicited. We were unanimously encouraged to ask staff members for anything we might need, from ice to restaurant recommendations, etc. The rooms are crisp, hip, and comfortable. The bathroom was a little small and I wasn't a huge fan of their shampoo/conditioner -- but I'm picky. Nice breakfast layout in the morning. Seems very family-friendly.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Puerto Sagua is wonderful and affordable Cuban -- the best Cuban sandwich I had in the Miami area infact and also has some delicious tender stews. The Italian "La Bufala" place on the corner -- even closer to Lord Balfour -- was also great and moderately priced.
