Recent guest reviews

Wonderful experience! Everyone was very accommodating and welcoming. Bathroom is a bit snug.

Hotel was very comfortable and inviting. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel porch was comfortable and relaxing, despite closeness to South Beach crowds.

A nice small hotel with a great staff. Close to everything, but far enough away from the noise nd craziness of South Beach.

Location is great! All staffs are great. In and out of hotel have to go thru the restaurant staffs are very weird because they kept asking us to eat/drink there as they can't tell we are the hotel guest and already had dinner.

We were here a short time, but we enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and accomedating. I would recommend to a friend.

Great location! Great style! Nice fixtures, and decor.. But the bathrooms toilet to sink distance was nuts! It was literally up against the sink, and the tp roll was under the sink,where u couldn't reach it while on the toilet.. Everything else was awesome!!

I can’t say enough how top notch the staff at this hotel are. Especially those at the front desk. You won’t find better service unless you stay at the Ritz Carlton. I had a couple issues with my room, and they went out of their way to assist. Wish the hotel had a pool, but the fact that it’s across the street from the beach makes up for it. Will definetly come back.

I stay here every time I’m in Miami. It feels like a boutique hotel. I always know the rooms will be quiet and comfortable, the buffet breakfast is quick/great and it’s in the perfect location across from the beach with chairs and beach towels (included in a resort fee). The staff is always helpful and accommodating. Until next time, Lord Balfour!

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.

Dear squirrel, Thank you so much for your review and comments. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us despite our tight bathrooms. We share your opinions but think we've done the best with the space that we have. Please know in 2018 we're opening 17 modern guest rooms and the bathrooms will be much more spacious. I hope to welcome you back so you can see them! Warm regards,
