      Historical Traveler Reviews Century Hotel Miami Beach

      Nicest rooms and best Miami location

      from

      This is the place to stay... I highly recommend this hotel, Nice rooms with very confortable down beds and nice marble bathroom. this is a nice and confortable place to stay. The management is very friendly and and helpfull, the hotel has the best location in Miami. We really enjoyed our stay...

      Great Hotel

      from

      I recently visited the Century July 23-25 2004 and it was great. The staff was excellent and very friendly. The hotel is very quaint and quiet, I reccommend this place to stay if you are visiting with a significant other. We found ourselves sleeping in everyday becasue the beds were so comforatable (down blanket and pillows). I found the rooms to be very clean and very cute. The whole hotel had a very small but comforatable feeling. By the end of our trip we didnt want to leave and we told ourselves that we would be back to stay at this hotel. I have stayed at much more expensive hotels on Ocean, but this place was alot cheaper than most and was much nicer. I would reccommend this place for someone that wants to be close to the ocean, action, and its very quiet.

      Excellent location!

      from

      The Century is located right across the beach in the quiet part of Ocean Drive. The hotel staff is very friendly and very good looking also!

      It is tastefully decorated and the beds are very comfortable.

      I have recommended the century to all my airline colleagues.

      We do not recommend it. We found the rooms to be dirty.

      from

      We would not classify the Century Hotel as a "boutique hotel". We would not recommend it.

      Although the staff at check-in was very friendly and helpful, we found the hotel to be dirty - our room in particular.

      Upon check-in, we found coffee stains on the television, built-up residue throughout the shower recess, an very unclean bathroom mirror and a bed-side table that hadn't been wiped over for quite some time (including a run of built-up grim along one edge of the table that had been there for god knows how long). The windows were so filthy we needed to close the blinds, and the telephone was equally as filthy - with untold dirt built up in the handset recess. The floors were in urgent need of a mop. And of course, we can't forget to mention the sticker from a condom wrapper that was still stuck to our bed-head. We won't even start on what we found in the wardrobe.

      An attempt by the cleaning staff to rectify the problems (whilst we went out for breakfast) achieved nothing more than a remake of the bed and a fresh towel.

      We both travel frequently - staying in big-name hotels with business, and choosing to stay in often VERY basic accommodation when back-packing for pleasure - shearers sheds, hostels, refugios, family run B&Bs etc. We don't mind basic - we just expect "clean".

      Unfortunately, The Century Hotel provided us with the dirtiest room we had encountered for many years.

      Admittedly, management were very good in trying to recover the situation. We checked-out without charge and management offered to help us found alternative accommodation. We declined the offer.

      We found far superior accommodation by walking a few blocks north, at a much better rate. And yes - the new place was spotless clean.

      Not bad, but don't rely on the website

      from

      I stayed 5 nights at the Century Hotel. Frankly, it's not a bad place to stay. I liked the quiet location in the southern part of Ocean Drive. Bars and clubs are easily accessible and you won't be disturbed by rowdy crowds partying all night long. Breakfast was minimal, though (Canned fruit, cornflakes, coffee, juice). In addition, staff was friendly, but didn't go out of their way to assist. Yes, the safe did not work, there was no iron, no alarm clock, but I really did not care too much... If you get a good rate at the Century (like I did), it is definitely a place to consider if you can do without much luxury.

      What you see is not what you get

      from

      To start off with the website is misleading. The rooms are verry basic,bed cd player,phone and a t.v. Oh yeah also a minibar. The a.c.

      is very noisy, they do not help you with your bags, the safe in the rooms do not work( in any room) no alarm clock, the continental breakfast was poptarts, cereal and juice. The resturaunt next door is closed for renovations. There was no iron in the room nor was there a table to put your things on. Only the minibar that housed the cd player and the phone. The maid service was minimal. She did make the beds and empty the trash but that was about it. All in all it was a very boring place to stay. You are 5 blocks from where the action is. The only plus on this hotel is it has a very comfortable bed and the night man was very pleasant and helpful.

      Nice

      from

      Articulate rooms, great service, perfect location to all the restaurants and clubs, though very quiet. The service was that of a large resort with a terrific Front Desk staff! I will return...thank you Century Hotel for a perfect stay!

      Ok hotel

      from

      We stayed at the Century on 2/15/03 and after reading the reviews were worried. The room was clean and furnished in a modern European style with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was ok. We found no dead ants, the help were friendly ( they lost our reservation but found it and stated that they were switching computer systems). The air conditioner was loud but no worse than many places. The only noise we encounter was the garbage collectors at 7:00 AM. Would we stay at the Century again? I'm not sure. I have no real negatives; it is a cute hotel in a quieter part of South Beach

      It's not the best place to stay

      from

      I stayed with a friend in this hotel, I like the bed a lot, so comfortable, and the furniture was ok... but, but, the employees that work here are the worst. Man!, they always have an ugly face, even the manager! I didn't saw a smile and everybody there attend me with bad humor.

      When we had to come back to our country, we left an important envelope for my partners in Miami, but the staff of the front desk lost it!

      Think before choose this place!

      I do not recomend this Hotel

      from

      We were going on a cruise and we had 1 day before the cruise and 2 days after to spend in Miami. I looked around on-line and noticed this really cute hotel in a really happening district and I booked it.

      Do not trust the photograph. Yes, the room was furnished interestingly but the furniture was old and not well taken cared of. The walls peeled, the air conditioner was so loud that it woke us up every 10 minutes when it turned on at night, the bathroom was full of dead ants, the room was dump, the walls were thin and you heard everything that was going on around you.

      Do not stay in room 101. It is right next to the lobby and it gets REALLY loud in there (not from the guests, because we didn't see any guests except us, but from the phone conversations that the hotel workers have while on duty.)

      One of the hotel workers came into our room in the middle of the day without nocking while we were laying in bed.

      The hotel is located almong old buildings that are being re-constructed, so the area is not very well populated and pretty ugly. You have to walk for about 15 minutes until you actually get to the lively part of the street. Better live there for the same a mount of money.

      The beach however is nicer around the Century hotel then in the lively area. There are not too many people there and the sand is really pure and soft. On the other hand, the popular beach gets really crowded and the sand is very rough with stones.

      I would definately never stay in this hotel again. Although I was not impressed with any of the smaller hotels on the street, I would definately stay in the larger hotels at the end of the street that look clean and beautiful, with nice beaches and better crowd.

      Wednesday we dropped in the RV and took up residence in our hotel on Miami Beach. We have spent the last five nights here, mixing it up between the beach, cafes, restaurants and simply enjoying the hotel room – which has a TV and a shower that is not ...

Chloe initially quite distraught (after all she has slept with this toy all her life, had it by her side through everything - even been in every holiday snap!) but seemed to be over excited about being in Miami - so the fall out will be later no doubt. Rupert in serious dog house for not checking his and Chloe's seat properly. Also one of the car seats never made it to us and Lucas lost his wallet with 30 in it!!!! Not a great start...However one of ...

We got to see the mansions belonging to Gloria Estefan, Shakira, Shaquille O'Neal, P-Diddy and many more. There were also cool mansions which have been used in famous movies like Scarface. Got to check out the pop singer Usher's boat too which is named 'Usher'. Pretty discreet. After the ...
