The Mimosa Hotel
Travel Blogs from Miami Beach
... us! We walked down to Ocean Drive to find a restaurant and decided on one with a lady doing flamenco dancing and guy playing the guitar! We ordered cocktails because it was happy hour but when they came out they were bigger than our heads!! So after two cocktails and very nice dinner with Remy we were then all in the mood to go out with the hostel so ended up at a karaoke ...
... the store was an awesome guy and he was from Israel and Limor had lived in Israel previously so they hit it off. He was a great guy who gave us a lot of tips of what to do while we are. I've seemed to find one of these people most places I have gone, who say's American's are rude and arrogant?
For our second day, we went back to the beach again. Needless to say, I had gotten very dark by this point. This night we also headed out a bar. The hostel ...
Tuesday dawns and we both wake early, a little jetlag making itself known. It's adventure day, when we pick up our car and head down into the Florida Keys so we take advantage of the early start to have a lovely breakfast watching the world go by outside the hotel, the morning sun squinting into our eyes.
Felipe picks us up at 9.30 and deliver us to the car hire depot at the airport which is so huge it seems to have its own terminal. Check in desks for Hertz, Thrifty, National, ...
... Valor stop. As I was gathering up my luggage, some people smiled at me and asked if I was heading for a cruise. I happily smiled and said yes and asked if they had enjoyed the one they were on to which they replied they had. A very friendly crew member then directed me to the Porters that would take my luggage. When you go on a cruise, you hand over your luggage before you enter the building. You are expected to pay a nominal tip, and you next see your bags sometime between ...
Memorial Day weekend was just around the corner so we went to Miami. All I knew is that I had to check out all the hype regarding the famous, glitzy, where the stars vacation...South Beach. This must be the place to be when everyone thinks of spending the long weekend at the beach, right?
We managed to find free 3 hour parking at the Flamingo Park. We were within walking distance to the Holocaust Memorial (there's one in every ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Mimosa Hotel Miami Beach
I was looking for a last minute escape to some warm weather without having to spend alot of money. After reading some of the reviews I was a little worried about the Mimosa Hotel.
The Mimosa was clean and the people were nice. The Mimosa was a very nice beachfront hotel.
I purchased a beach chair for $10 bucks down the street and enjoyed some of the local bars and restaurants and took advantage of the bus which easily took us to Bal Harbour and to Lincoln Rd. and South Beach.
I would recomend this hotel and will return.
Had the amenities of a Best Western or Travelodge, but more expensive. We were quite disappointed.
My Girlfriend recently attended a conference in Miami Beach and I tagged along for a little vacation. After reading your website I was a little concerned about her choice but after staying there a week I wanted to let people know about our stay
OK for 1 night only
The rooms are nice decorated and the beds are good but the location is really ---- with a paid parking across the busy collins avenue. The rooms are not soundproof, you really hear everything your neighbours do. The pool is not heated and small and the beach is the worst in Miami. The hotel is located between 2 construction sites. The Gym is located a block away, but the personnel is in my opinion outstanding and helpfull, especially if you consider all the problems and complaints from guests they have to deal with. Its rather funny to drink a coffee in the lobby and hear really every guest complain to the receptionists. For sure we don't come back and the advertisment is misleading.
If you like to live in garbage, you'll just love this place!!! Our first night there, we had to call to have the linen changed - dirty sheets. The following morning, we (my husband and I) had to share bath towels - one had old blood stains on it. When we reported it they were not apologetic or accomodating. Anyone whose mopped their floor knows that you have to use clean water or the floor will be dirty and sticky. The floors were mopped everyday with dirty water and you could see the footprints of the supposed cleaning crew. You are unable to regulate the temperature in your room, there is NO spa in the facility, or gym unless you consider one treadmill, one stationary bike with a curtain serving as a wall separating it from a pool table on the opposite side of the room a gym. Oh, the beach, it is about 7-10 feet of rocky sand backed up to the back of the hotel- no place to lay back and relax. THIS PLACE WAS A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY!! Don't think you will iron your clothes either - no iron or ironing board in the room. The fridge is a wine cooler - it chills. The t.v/dvd player sits inside a makeship wall unit and will give you whiplash trying to watch it (you can't adjust or turn the t.v.). The best part of all - the walls are paper-thin where you can hear everything your neighbor says or does. WHERE'S THE PRIVACY????
My husband and I along with our 2 kids (aged 5 & 10) stayed at the Mimosa for 1 night as a post cruise vacation. Although we were there for only 1 day I have to say I did not notice any of the musty smells anyone else mentioned.
I stayed at the Mimosa hotel for a weekend recently. Firstly there is no parking I had to park across the street and walk through a busy intersection in order to check in luggage in hand. The first room they placed me in smelled of sewage due to a plumbing problem, when I called the front desk and complained a maintanence worker showed up with a plunger and air freshener. When I stated I wanted a different room the staff looked at me like I was nuts.
For the price tag of $125:
Very nice stay - friendly staff
We recenlty stayed at the Mimosa and we had a great experience. This building has been newly renovated and they did a great job. Rooms have a modern flair and are very comfortable. The staff was also very friendly.
