Property Description

Freehand Miami is the hotel for today’s traveler — combining convenience (a 5-minute walk from Miami Beach, and less than 1 mile from the nightlife of South Beach) with modern comforts, like an outdoor terrace with a pool, two craft cocktail bars, a seasonal restaurant, and breakfast served daily. It’s both an escape from the bustle of the strip and an ideal access point to the best of the city.

Choose from either community-style or standard guest rooms, all of which include a private bathroom, lockers, and a desk (plus cable TV in standard rooms).

The property is close to many excellent Miami bars and clubs, and our tour desk will happily curate restaurant, bar, beach, and sightseeing recommendations for you. But there are also plenty of ways of enjoy yourself at the hotel itself — from the Broken Shaker, an award-winning specialty cocktail bar with an eclectic menu that utilizes spices and fresh-pressed produce, to 27, a market-driven, globally inspired restaurant serving shrimp dumplings with chile oil, and lamb ribs slicked with tangy pomegranate molasses. Programmed events are also offered in our tropical backyard terrace. Free WiFi is available property wide.

The property is 3 minutes’ drive from the Miami Beach Convention Center and 5 minutes’ drive from Miami Beach Botanical Garden. Lincoln Road Mall is 2 miles away.

This hotel is also rated as the best value in Miami Beach — it’s a budget-conscious option that doesn’t require sacrificing on comfort.

    I came all the way from Sydney Australia & this hostel is very nice, cocktails & drinks a very expensive, being a backpackers you’d think they’d have happy hour or cheap drinks or cheaper meals, but having good size beds, aircon & very clean with good sized lockers, bus stop across the street & subway & supermarket around the corner is great. I’m definitely coming back here 👍

    3rd time staying here and won’t be the last! Always a top notch service. The amenities are incredible, free breakfast, cold brew all day and the bar is perfect. Plenty of options for cheap food around the hostel too.

    I had a great stay at this hostel. The room was a bit messy when i arrived but i think it’s because I had an early check in. They hostel is only only block away from the beach, a supermarket, and a Starbucks. It’s a good 25/30 min walk to South Beach (12th street) which isn’t bad since there’s an incredible view!

    It doesn’t have parking lots :( I parked my car at the Miami Beach Parking Garage on the 17th Street (around 5 minutes driving) and paid $20 for 24 hours. Anyways, I love the hotel! Cool interior and beautiful outdoor

    Really nice atmosphere, the bar and the pool are great places to meet new people. Only thing is that the hostel uses a lot (!!!) of single-use plastic. I think it’s very unnecessary and something they will have to change in the near future.

    It was a super fun place to stay. Really enjoyed the Saturday morning yoga and drinks by the pool. It is very close to the beach and a quick Uber to South Beach if you want to party hard. Only downside is the bathroom. No hand soap in the bathroom and they didn't clean the shower curtain or shower walls in the cleaning process, which meant that there were stains on the shower curtain my entire stay and mysterious hair on the walls. Definitely a bit run down, but hey, you can't beat the location.
