Miami is a beautiful city, Thank you for your hospitality and for the organization....
The hotel is in a central location, near the sea, well connected by bus and other means...
The rooms are very comfortable, you are really good!!!
I hope to return!!!
More of a traditional hotel experience than your typical airbnb, but good none-the-less. Big comfy bed and a view of the ocean, and very accessible from the airport for just a couple bucks on the bus. Front desk staff wasn't the warmest when asking for help (ie. needed an ice bucket) since the unit is privately owned, but overall good and I'd stay here again. $10 for internet that didn't work for the full 24hours.
the view is great. the parking was what you would expect. but one must be reminded that you are not part of the hotel ! kinder owns the room. so if you need a phone you are out of luck. BUT, hopefully you have your cell phone with you ! bring your own TOILET PAPER as that is not provided for you. and beach towels bring with you as the Hotel CHARGES you $5.00 for each towel per day. i asked for an extra blanket and pillow and this was provided by the host to me. it was funny to be in a hotel and not be in a hotels room ? even though you are in the hotel ? great as ivan was very helpful to me and returns calls fast. would enjoy another stay as the place is wonderful. perhaps the scent of a subway sandwich shop in the lobby might be overbearing ? it seems as though their favorite dish is pizzas ! great location to the beach and bus stop accross the street. have fun in the sun
On check-in we had a similar experience to others we read about here - but it was quickly sorted out by a very efficient and capable host. The guests are quite a cross-sector of culture. We like that. Our room was big and had a view of the Atlantic. The bed was comfy enough, pillows could be better. Overall we felt well taken care of. For an inexpensive hotel near the Fontainebleu where our conference was, this worked out fine. There is no parking at the hotel, something we weren't aware of before arriving, but night parking on the street is available. Be sure you have Ivan's number with you in case you need it.
The first room I had (501) was pretty big as well as the bathroom. There was some basic equipment (coffee machine, microwave and a fridge). The bus stop is conveniently located across the street.
There is a Subway restaurant inside the lobby of the hotel so of course you can have their products at any time, but you also have the smell of it in the elevator which can be brutal (at least to me) early morning.
You will find a CVS with some foods 4 blocks walking and in the same street a good but expensive French bakery. You also have some coffee shop and small food items in the same street.
The beach is fine and very close to the hotel.
The first room located across the elevator can be noisy as people tend to speak loudly while waiting for the lift or getting out at night from it. The isolation with the other room next door is thin so you will have some disturbance according to the guest next door if relevant. The mattress is very soft, too soft for me, but we are all different. The hotel can have your room clean for 15$ and you need to tell them when to come and how many days. You can have your clothes clean if you leave them at the reception when leaving in the morning, it may be a same day but not guaranteed. There is a computer in the lobby which you can use for free, but it is mostly out of order, infected by viruses. There is also an ATM machine in the lobby which can be helpful.
The carpets in both room I occupied while staying 17 days would, in my opinion, need to be completely and thoroughly cleaned. But it is a good value for the money and buses are frequent on that road. You can also find taxi easily as there are many hotel on the road. It will cost you 33$ to go to the Miami Airport, it is a fixed fee, FYI.
Ivan is an excellent host, he is very informative and friendly! The room itself is convenient and it is in walking distance from the beach, bus services, and restaurants. Overall the accommodation is good value for the price you pay!
The apartment is a hotel room and is very well located on Miami Beach. The hotel is clean and safe, and mostly nice and quiet in the evenings. Check-in on our first stay was a bit of a headache, but Ivan was very helpful in resolving the issues we had. His replies were prompt and very satisfactory. On our second stay we had no problems whatsoever. Just a pity that you need to pay an extra fee for room cleaning. Overall it was good value for money though!
Room quality: ok
Building: smells like Subway
Other: Check-in took a long time (Ocean Spray staff not up-to-speed on Airbnb / Kinder Enterprise reservations). Room hadn't been cleaned after the previous guest when I arrived and cleaning staff had gone home for the night. However we were able to switch into another room (operated by Ocean Spray) and Ivan @ Kinder was very apologetic and prompt with the reimbursement for the original room.
The hotel is located at a marvelous location. It is very convenient, and I loved the subway downstairs. I had some complications during check in but the problems were fixed right away. I called Ivan to inform him about the problems and he was extremely polite and understanding. I would have changed some things but overall it was a good stay. You definitely get your moneys worth.
Great place & good value with clean facilities and friendly front-desk staff.
Great guest and friend! Welcome back anytime!
Ivan and his girlfriend were such great guests. Very clean, quiet and considerate. The were very easy to work with and a joy to have at my house.
Ivan was a great guest; clean, quiet and friendly. He's welcome back anytime.
Unfortunately I didn't get to meet Ivan as I ended up putting him up in an inn since my availability changed, but I really appreciated his flexibility in being open to being reaccommodated.
Ivan had some problems on his way in and was a little confused on the accommodations. He lists commercial spaces and it seems he thought my home was as well. Possible language barrier. Please be clear with him that you have a room not an entire home available so there is no confusion or surprises. My post clearly states a large room with a view and balcony and the picture would indicate that it is a large home and not a single apartment.
It was a pleasure having Ivan stay with us. He is a great guy and I hope to bump into him again somewhere around the globe.
Pleasure to have Ivan- very respective & considerate- we would welcome him back anytime....Wen & Mike
I've known Ivan for many many years and he's never disappointed me once. He's a very responsible and fun loving guy who takes his vacation rentals business serious and is willing to go that extra mile to make your stay go from ordinary to 'extra'ordinary, every time! Additionally, I've stayed at least once if not many more times at each and everyone of his properties and they are all wonderful in their own unique way. I highly recommend Ivan and know you will enjoy your stay with him!
Ivan is really a wonderfull person, he is intelligent, easy going, and very helpful. His properties are very well located, affordable and very pleasant to stay in. The description of the properties are accurate to what you see in the pictures. I would definitely recommend him.
Ivan has an outstanding personality, very creative and with his international background makes him a very interesting person to be around.
Ivan is a terrific person. He would be fantastic company, great to talk to and a wonderful guest.
Very respectful and very clean as well.
You will be happy to
have Ivan as guest.
Would be like having someone from your own family.
Enjoy his company. It really is a pleasure. ;-)
Ivan is a really great guy. Relaxed and easy going but also very responsible. He's traveled a lot so he is pretty saavy when it to comes to handling himself in foreign places. He is very respectful and mindful of other people. I would recommend him as a landlord or guest any day.
