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.

    This was a great stay. Make sure you reserve a table at the broken shaker (bar in the hostel) during Covid or you won’t get a spot. Definitely a chill laid-back atmosphere and all around good vibes. It is further down the beach from where most of the action is on South Beach, but I didn’t mind that during Covid and it was probably a lot quieter. I would definitely recommend. Also, I live in Miami, so this was a staycation for me :)

    This hostel JUST opened back up. They have hand sanitizer everywhere and masks are required. I stayed in the King bed and wow it was large! Room was very clean, except the floors could have been swept better under the bed. The only downside is the air conditioner is extremely loud and turns off randomly. The BEST part is the pool and bar! Food is delicious and cheap! Look for the local iguanas!! Note: BEWARE of HostelWorld’s “Best Price Guarantee”. Easier to book through another site.

    Freehand was the perfect hostel for my stay in Miami Beach. It's an upbeat, social hostel with a good common space and a beautiful attached bar. The beach is blocks away, but it's a 15min walk north of the hustle and bustle of South Beach, which meant rest on Saturday night was possible. The rooms were clean and comfortable and everyone working there was very friendly. Would stay again!

    Decent location, clean. No activities because of covid, which isn't a problem. My only complaint is there's not a microwave.

    I slept on a bunk against an outside wall and couldn’t sleep because of all the noise outside from people partying. Finally at 2am I went out and slept in my car.

    Check in was a breeze and the guy at the front was super helpful and got us all squared away with parking and our room. The did a great job of having COVID rules posted and enforced. First night there we had a nice little night cap at the shaker, and although a little pricey, the ambiance and drinks were nice. I had The Smilie ($14), BF has the watermelon daiquiri ($14 not frozen btw). We had a private room. Window AC worked great. Bathroom well appointed, had towels/soap/shampoo/conditioner.

    Unfortunately i was very disappointed when i booked a room for 4 and was checked in to a room for 8 instead. Then i complained and received some money back for being downgraded however as a customer being downgraded is really not nice. Then during my stay for 4 days they changed my room 3 times. That was a bit frustrating.

    Perhaps I caught them on a bad week, but the kitchen was entirely closed, the cold brew was broken and *THERE IS NO LONGER FREE BREAKFAST* that being said the room was nice, the staff was helpful and the pool was ideal.
