2 of us (adults) just returned last night,8/26, from another wonderful 7-nt stay @ The ALBION SoBe, celebrating a "special" occasion. We were upgraded to one of the Penthouse Suites (PH8) and we were ELATED! Thank-You Mr. Maximo Soncini for your gracious hospitality and generosity in giving us the opportunity to stay in PH8 which was AWESOME! What a view! and HUGE ROOFTOP TERRACE w/outdoor shower and wetbar!! This was GREAT because we were able to go outside without leaving our room! The HUGE bathroom and shower were great too. And the BEDS are ALWAYS HEAVENLY! This was our 4th stay @ The ALBION SoBe since Dec. 2015 and we won't stay anywhere else. The Location and Comfort of the Hotel is GREAT! You are close to ALL that SoBe has to offer. While there, we took the $9 each way GO-BUS to KEY WEST for the day which was a STEAL! You get picked up and dropped off just around the corner from the ALBION, on Washington @ the Park across from BELLA CUBA restaurant. Leaves SoBe @ 7a...Arrives K.W. 1130am ish. Then it leaves K.W. @ 7p arrives back to SoBe 11p. The bus to K.W. was a DOUBLEDECKER (enclosed top level not openair) w/lavatory. On the return, a nice regular motorcoach w/lav. Make sure to bring a hoodie! It gets FREEZING in the bus! BRRRRR. Despite the off and on rainy week we had, Key West was fun! A must do if you've never been.

Thanks again for another AWESOME stay @ The ALBION SoBe! :) Hope to see you once again in DEC. 2017 for stay #5 @ "our home away from home" in SoBe.

P.S. I have listed below restaurants we visited (and some we re-visit when in SoBe) that we find enjoyable. Just look them up for details:

1. Big Pink : Has a HUGE menu Diner-like casual dining ALWAYS a re-visit
2. Puerto Sagua : Deliciosa Comida Cubana Autentica ALWAYS a re- visit (3x this trip!)
3. Havana 1957 Lincoln Rd Mall: Good Cuban food and close to ALBION.
4. Les Moulins La Fayette: Nice New French Patisserie across the street from ALBION.
5. Pizza Rustica: Italian/Pizzeria on Lincoln Road Mall
6. 11th St. Diner: Typical Silver/Chrome and Neon Diner w/big menu and BAR! re-visit always
7. Thai House SoBe: on Washington. Very good Thai Cuisine/and service. re-visit
8. Spris: Italian/Pizzeria very good pizza & calzone
9. Babylon Turkish Restaurant: Wonderful Turkish food/ambiance/service. 3rd time revisit.
10. Bella Cuba: cute,funky, nice, w/ great Cuban food around the corner on Wash. from ALBION.

In Key West we ate @: Sloppy Joe's Bar for Lunch A MUST do when in K.W. and Turtle Kraals on the waterfront near where the bus drops off/picks up. Convenient!


Room Tip: Pool view rooms on high floor are quieter. All rooms so far have been great! PH8,WOW!

This isn't a cheap hotel if include 35 a day parking they charge, so you would expect a nice night sleep, noisy and slamming doors all night staff didn't really care when told. Call down 15 mins before you want to leave and the car will be ready 45 mins on 2 occasions isn't really acceptable.
Rated 3.5 stars more like 2 at best! This hotel only got the rating I give it because of its great location that is all.

This hotel couldn't be better located! We got the 150 Miami Beach Airport Express Bus to the hotel which costs $2.25, YES $2.25 p/p get off at 17th Street and walk around the corner to James Ave, it takes about 5 mins! Stunning South Beach itself is two blocks away, you can hire sunbeds and umbrellas for the day, pay $32 at the hotel (which goes on your bill) or pay $30 to the attendant at the beach in cash, thats for 2 beds and an umbrella.
Our room was on the 5th floor overlooking the front of the hotel, we did think it would be noisy but we were never disturbed by road noise or revellers leaving the bar next to the lobby in the night! The room was spacious with two double beds, TV, all the usual bathroom facilities & toiletries provided. The room was cleaned very nicely each day with plenty of towels left.
Free tea and coffee is available throughout the day also iced water by the pool was greatly appreciated. The pool area needs a little attention/renovation but is clean & very quiet with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas no matter what time during the day you wanted to use them. Pool towels are free to use but they only put a small amount out so a trip to reception is sometimes needed to get them. At the weekends they sometimes host a pool party which is very busy and rowdy so we stayed clear and went to the beach instead (they do tell you in advance that a party is arranged).There is a small gym near the pool which always seemed to be empty.
The reception staff were all very friendly. Check in and out was very quick and smooth.
There are lots of places to eat, drink and shop on Lincoln Road, there is also a CVS across the road from the hotel which always seemed to be open and came in very handy for drinks & snacks etc
If you want to book trips or bus tours etc there is a shop around the corner which is also the pick up/drop off stop for trips.
This hotel is great value for money in a fab location, we stayed 12 nights, thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend

We stayed here for a week in July on honeymoon, and absolutely loved this hotel. Possibly partly because we got upgraded to a penthouse (!!) which was enormous and had a huge bathroom and balcony (with its own toilet?!). The room was to die for, and this certainly added to our enjoyment of the hotel.
The staff were all fairly young and possibly a little inexperienced.. so we found we needed to ask for things rather than them being offered (such as pool towels) but that was fine, and they were most helpful in arranging things. The hotel also has some bikes which you can borrow for a few hours or a day, (for a few dollars) and so we cycled along south beach one day which was fab.
The hotel pool and lounge area is very nice, as is the overall location as its not on the beach but only 1-2 blocks back so very handy, and doesn't come with an 'on-the-beach' hotel price tag! Its also nearer the streets with all the bars and restaurants on.
I would certainly look to stay here again if/when we return to Miami.

This is a good hotel on lincoln road, close to the shop and the beach. Really good location. Internet is good and the room are beautiful and clean. The cleaning girls are nice, people at the reception are "OK"... Breakfast is expensive and really too basic, no choice nd every day the same.
