  • We are so happy with Victor's studio where we stayed a couple of days prior to a cruise. The location could not be better and there is little street noise. The beds are clean and comfortable and there were nice, fluffy towels. 24 hr friendly concierge. Victor has been very prompt in responding to emails and is very polite. This is a gem and we are already talking about repeating our stay next year.

    Thanks Linda for your genuine review!!!. I like how you describe the apartment:
    a GEM. It is indeed very cozy and clean. Prior guests have raved too about how friendly the front desk staff is and how affordable their stay was. I hope to see you again when you come next year! Stay in touch! Victor

  • Victor's apartment isn't far from the ocean and it's wonderful. The apartment is cheap. That’s all. Firstly, it's more like hotel room, not apartment. Another rooms in this hotel looks more beautiful. The furniture and kitchenware aren't new. Sockets are rickety. Tableware are dirty, with pieces of old food. Every time you are using the toaster, be ready to hear extremely load fire alarm. You also need to pump out the water from air conditioning by yourself. There was intolerable smell of cheap air freshener in the room and, thanks God, we got it from the socket.

    There are 2 uncomfortable beds (like hospital beds) in this apartment, but you should know, that its easy to slide apart and actually you will sleep on the one little bed with you partner.

    During our 1 month staying we had 2 main troubles. 

    The first problem is bad quality of towels, which tinge body and clothes (and Victor solves this problem). The second, and more dangerous, ants and cockroaches. Victor doesn't give notice about it, but he definitely knew about this (he had special spray in the kitchen area). The ants were everywhere (and even in the bed) and sting. Only after a week and a half we had exterminator's visit. Now we are know about Airbnb Guest’ refund if there are insects in the property. And don’t afraid use it.

    We can’t recommend this apartment and can't recommend Victor as a careful host.

    Response from Victor:

    First of all I am not surprised to receive your negative comments after I had to report you to Airbnb for the deplorable and filthy conditions you left the apartment when you checked out. As my evaluation to Airbnb indicated prior to you writing your comments-

    I CANNOT RECOMMEND YOU TO THE AIRBNB COMMUNITY AS GUESTS.

    In the one month you stayed, you never took the trash out (I have pictures to prove it) and you left food all over the apartment (counters, floor, bed) - no wonder the ants and insects! The hotel manager and the Exterminator commented how dirty and messy you were. It took the housekeeper 10 hours (no exaggeration) to clean the apartment after you left. You left the floor full of sand, as if you had never swept it during your entire visit. You left the kitchen area extremely dirty along with dirty dishes! The towels were returned stained, the dining table stained with food, etc. You did not show any kind of consideration and respect as guests-

    To all hosts- AVOID THESE GUESTS! They are dirty and inconsiderate.

    Thank you for saying in your first sentence that the apartment is WONDERFUL; that is true , as the majority of my guest do attest!

  • We had a fantastic three weeks in Victor´s studio at the Royal Hotel. The striking thing is: It is only two blocks - five minutes walk - from Ocean Drive, the heart of South Beach. Go there and you will know what that means!
    The apartment itself is clean and comfortable, you can well do you own cooking even for a longer period of time. Publix supermarket is a ten minutes walk away. The beds are really comfortable. The roof terrace on second floor is fantastic - just sit outside and hear the heart of South Beach beating!
    On one occasion we had a question concerning how to deal with the air conditionong - Victor turned up the very next day to solve the small problem. The staff in the Royal hotel were nice and helpful - and they are there 24/7.
    Taking into account what you might pay anywhere else reasonably close to Ocean Drive, there is no better place that we could imagine in South Beach. We´d come again for sure!!

  • Great place, near the beach. Small and cozy.

    January 2014
  • Great position, great host, would stay here again. Victor answered all of my questions and explained everything so the check in was very easy. Great people work at reception desk, they helped us with printing our boarding passes and calling taxi for us. The apartment was clean and close to Ocean Drive and had all you need.

  • great location and good for a couple of nights stay. Windows dont open though so gets a bit hot/stuffy. Fine if like us you are just using the place for a bed.

    Response from Victor:

    FYI George: There was an AIR CONDITIONING UNIT AND A FAN to keep the apartment cool and unstuffy. If you had told me, that could have been resolved in minutes! =) The fan and AC unit can be adjusted to the temperature and preference of your choice.

  • Victor's place is great. It is only a 5 minute walk to the beach, the beds are very comfortable and the bathroom is clean. I enjoyed staying here. There are a lot of shops and restaurants close by. I did not get to meet Victor, but everything went perfect. The studio is located inside the Royal Hotel. This makes it easy for tours, such as everglades, to pick you up in front of the door. Perfect stay, would definitely come back!

Very nicely furnished. A great place to stay while visiting Peru. I have a friend that can help you with airport pick up, tours to Cusco and Machu Pichu and the rest of Peru. I am sure we can help you have a very memorable vacation and stay. I have a travel agency and can assist you with your travel plans. Cheers!
