... to join them. Then with the help of some strange people, I was given directions to walk to the hostel. I arrive at the hostel, I had sweat out half of my body weight by this point, but nonetheless I was so excited to be in miami. I was given my key and off to my room I went. Disgusting. The beds were wobbly, you could just about fit a pair of shoes on the floor... I hated it. The girls I was sharing the room with soon all filtered in, ...
... do some shopping on. Lincoln Road Mall, pretty cool street actually, with a lot of restaurants and bars with patios and of course a lot of shops as well. After some shopping I enjoyed a beer, and when I was sitting there I felt some drops of rain, but it's still around 25 degrees. I actually got three beers. After the beers I did a little more shopping and I went back to buy the shoes I put a side in another store. But I forgot where it was at ...
... packed bus and headed off for Miami! I had googled the route for getting from the bus stop the other end to the hostel but turns out the bus had been discontinued.... Luckily after wandering around the intersection for a while a guy asked if we needed help and then turns out the guy behind him was staying in the same hostel as us so he helped us find our way! We checked ...
Today's main events were the flight to Miami—the first leg of our trip to Cuba, and a necessary precaution so that we didn’t miss the charter flight—and a dinner at Dr. Gleber’s condo in Miami. I don’t think any of us have really had it sink in that by tomorrow, we will be in Cuba. You know, that island ninety miles off the Florida coast that was illegal to travel to for a really long time thanks to ...
... the familiar ta-moko on a mans arm so I yelled out "hey New Zealand", he immediately came over to chat and told us how he was heading off for a cruise through the Bahamas (nice) - always nice to have some time with a local from back home.
After breakfast we packed up and checked out and drove ourselves to Sawgrass Recreation Park where we had vouchers for an air ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Century Hotel Miami Beach
Nicest rooms and best Miami location
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...
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.
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 would not classify the Century Hotel as a "boutique hotel". We would not recommend it.
Not bad, but don't rely on the website
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.
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.
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!
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
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!
