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.

    I really liked my stay at freehand from the staff at the front desk and at the broken shaker was nice, friendly and helpful. Your real close to the beach, you have a supermarket where you can get all you essentials and can grab some food for cheap to go. The area has a couple of restaurants and cafes with affordable prices and the bus that takes you to airport or south beach for free in these times. overall it was worth the stay at freehand. Met great people and they keep up with social distance

    150 bus from airport drops off right in the front entrance. Pool and bar on premises. Lovely staff. Huge lockers in your room for storage. Quick walk to food, store and the beach 🏖️. I'll be back. Very chill. I wish there was a kettle for tea, but no complaints. Had a great time.

    I've stayed at numerous hostels all over the world and this one was one of the top ones I've ever stayed at! The beds are the #1 thing to talk about! They are super comfortable and the AC in the room actually works. This hostel is within walking distance of everything if you're not afraid to put on your walking shoes and enjoy the weather. Miami is hella expensive but there's a subway right across the street AND a supermarket and liquor store so it's perfect for people who want to save a few bux

    The facilities are beautiful, the room perfectly clean, perfect price quality, just one block from the bus that takes you to the central area of south beach that is free for the pandemic. Perhaps it would be good if they would inform us of the events that were going to take place in the pool area, because they even brought a DJ but they never told us anything, we opted to have fun outside.

    The location is great, just a block away from the beach. My main reason for vacation was the beach, so I didn’t hang out at the hostel much. The courtyard is cool and the bar was very popular. Room had air conditioning but wasn’t cleaned (swept, trash emptied) while I was there—not sure if this was a COVID policy? No kitchen, but located near a lot of restaurants and a supermarket. Walls are pretty thin.

    The hostel was nice except the dorm we stayed in was damp & smelled of mildew. Seems like the rooms aren't airred out very often. & the day of check out, the 2 girls at the counter were rude while we got our things together. Over all we had a great time with my dorm mates
