Room Mate Lord Balfour

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Wonderful experience. Friendly staff. Gym, quiet place on Ocean Drive, chic and stylish room. Right near the beach! Can't wait to go back! Will have to post photos later!

The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The hotel is across the street from the beach. Umbrellas and chairs on he beach are included in room stay/resort fee; great convenience. Close to everything. Very quiet, neighborhood feel, despite being just two blocks from the "South Beach" scene. Clean, modern, comfortable room. Yes, the bathroom is rather small, but clean, modern and adequate. My only complaint is that the lighting in the bathroom at the mirror is inadequate. Would stay again and highly recommend. : )

I had a wonderful time thank you so much for giving me my space

It was very comfortable and enjoyable. The breakfast was delicious. The towels and chairs on the beach were convenient.

This hotel is a very good option to stay in Miami Beach, the location is great.

We had a lovely time and the hotel is in a great location

Very pleasant atmosphere. On site sidewalk restaurant was my favorite. Close to beach, easy access.

Staff are very nice and the room were clean and neat

Pros: Great service. Friendly staff. Well decorated rooms. Close to the beach. Cons: very small rooms and bathrooms. You can heat activities and conversation from the room next door.

This was at a great location, near all the fun. The staff was super helpful and super nice. This is the place I recommend!

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.

bathroom was REALLY small and there is no where to park- have to valet your car. Otherwise- great place to stay! Staff very friendly and helpful.

Hotel was everything I expected and a very good deal. Would recommend

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.

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.

Great location. Very close to beach, dining, and entertainment. Nice decor in lobby and rooms.

Have absolutely no complaints. Room was beautiful with unique decor. Staff was friendly and very helpful. I would recommend this hotel!!

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.

First time back to Miami in 10 years. Didn't want to go generic with the usual big name hotels but also didn't want to end up in one of those older hotels that should be shut down. Found this gem. Never head of a hotel like this but saw that all the reviews were positive. Boutique, trendy and painting of a tatooed female over the bed.... hey its Miami! What a great boutique hotel. Great location in South Beach. You walk in and you are greeted by the bar and the cool decor. The lobby is a bit small but clean and hip. The people are super friendly. Even before I mentioned it the check in clerk knew my name, probably because I was his last check in. The room is clean. Small but cozy. The bathroom is a bit tight but I never felt crowded. I like the hard wood floors. There is a $18 daily resort fees that covers beach towels, chairs and breakfast. Never had a chance to use the towels and chairs. Breakfast was simple and clean. Toast, bagels, croissant, danish. Some fruit (strawberries and bananas), yogurt, cereal, coffee or tea. Definitely not $18 worth but the items were well presented and better quality than just stuff you buy at a super market. The price was totally affordable. You can do valet parking but I just parked on the street and paid with my credit card < $10 overnight. Amenities are little lacking (no pool or jacuzzi), yes I know the ocean is right within walking distance but who goes to the beach at 9 pm when its dark but I could use a dip in the pool. I didn't ask if there was a gym. Overall would definitely come back and stay longer. The trip was too short.

We were greeted curbside and invited in to a lobby that smelled of fresh, inviting scents. Upon check-in, we were told about hotel HAPPY HOUR which was just what we needed after our flight! Everyone was smiling and very inviting. We will definitely return soon!
