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 and a seasonal restaurant. 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.

    It was a great location and a very cute hostel. The pool and outside area was very comfortable and clean. The bed was clean as well with maid service coming in everyday. Would stay again

    Great location, staff was awesome and so helpful. Free bikes for 2 hours a day came on handy. Swimming pool was good but close at 6pm that was a bummer, other than that everything was as expected!

    This was an amazing stay for the location, price and amenities provided by Freehand. The lodging was clean, efficient and as advertised. I even had an issue with a snoring roommate and was allowed to switch rooms with no questions asked. It is a 2-3 minute walk from the beach and 10-20 minute walk within all of South Beach Nightlife. For those who are driving or bring your own car, MAKE SURE TO CALL AHEAD ABOUT PARKING PASSES.

    Really beautiful space & nice, clean dorm rooms. Lovely pool and cocktails. Great and safe area, easy to get to on bus from airport and walking distance to a grocery store, beach, and restaurants. It was very over priced, last minute asking for $85 for an 8 bed dorm room which I have never heard of. I would recommend staying here if you book ahead or are not worried about money.

    The girls and I loved staying here. It was clean and overall just pretty to be in. The room was clean and they were very nice to make sure all of us girls got to be in one room. They even made sure my friend could check in earlier without me and check out was easy as well. It was a nice time overall.

    This hostel was solid but a little too overpriced for what you’re paying for. Staff and security were barley noticeable which was a little odd to me. The room was nice and the bed was very comfortable. Facilities were a little old but worked perfectly fine. Also, this hostel doubles as a sort of club at night with loud music. I could hear the music in my room but it wasn’t loud enough to really bother me. I would stay here again but it probably wouldn’t be my first choice.

    My partner and I stayed at Freehand Miami, and although nice, we're missing key amenities that we needed. There was no kitchen, no refrigerator, not even a microwave. We bought $342.00 worth of groceries just prior to checking in, only to be told this info, even though it's listed! They seem to care mora about their restaurant then their hostel guests. Not allowed outside while restaurant is open. Was told they did not have bikes to use, and then I found them hidden the next day. Don't stay here

    I arrived a day late due to an accident on the drive from DC only to find no room available for me. Any thought I was billed and paid the full amount. The front desk staff were rude and unsympathetic offering me no alternative accommodations or suggestions for a place to stay10:30 at night 😏

    Hostel and rooms have a heavy moisture smell. You can't open a window to get fresh air. There is no ventilation. After 6 you can't use the garden and pool area.They have a restaurant there with reservation only. That cause people to go somwhere else. No social atmosphere.
