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.

    My stay was beyond any expectations. Room was superbly quiet and clean. Atmosphere was welcoming, fun, busy yet casual. Yoga classes were great! Incredible staff. The only reason this was not a 10 is that it was very easy for people to get extra keys- no i.d required. This being said, I felt super safe there as a woman traveling alone. Most definitely where ill be staying next time i’m in Miami.

    Great location, near the beach and groceries. Good staff. Good pool. Fun, optionally-social atmosphere. Good kitchen. Feels more backpacker-ish and less resort-ish. Wifi was a little iffy. Hostel and room were clean enough, but not as new-feeling/immaculate as some other hostels in the area. I liked it here, would definitely stay again!

    Very Good

    18 Apr 2019
    We stayed in the private 4 bed room over Easter weekend and were impressed by the location, ambience and facilities. However, for the price paid I would've expected better cleanliness of the rooms as well as maintenance and upkeep - the room could do with more lighting, fresh paint and upholstery changes. Our room was facing the courtyard and music would often be blasting until 1.30 - 2.00 am which is inconvenient and you should offer earplugs to your guests.

    Bathroom was nasty. Water kept overflowing on the floor after showers. There were pools of water all day on the floor. Some of the staffs had poor customer service. The only thing I like is the restaurant at the hostel. The hostel itself was very poor.

    For how expensive this hostel was, it really disappointed. Everything is trying to be so relaxed that it's hard to find staff at any time, there's no security whatsoever (lockers are literally movable so don't bring valuables). It's a bar, so no matter what room you are in, it's LOUD until 3 am. LOUD, WITH earplugs in. Breakfast was dry toast and a banana. The pool likely hasn't been cleaned this year... Rooms don't look like they get cleaned. Overall,SKIP. I left early to stay elsewhere.
