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’s in a great location, it had a beautiful pool and is literally in the lobby of one of the most dope bars in South beach. Not in a touristy spot either. Each bed had it’s own light and outlets. There was two full bathrooms in the 8 bed dorm with desks and lockers. It was fabulous.

    Had a pleasant stay at Freehand Miami and would stay again. I liked the style of the facility and that they kept the charm of this old building. The garden and pool area is wonderful. The pool was closed for my time being there, but they refunded some of my costs without even asking. The staff could be more helpful and approachable. With some exceptions, they always seemed annoyed by every inquiry. The bar can be noisy in the evening and the aircon is noisy. I shut them down for the night.

    Very Good

    My one big issue is that absolutely nobody answers the phone ever there - don't understand how you can have this at a business. No matter what extension you try, nobody will ever answer the phone and they don't have any type of answering machine. Our bathroom sing was completely clogged, it filled up very fast once you began to wash your face or brush your teeth, we had to end up brushing our teeth over the shower.

    From maybe 4-5 people of the staff only 2 were very helpful and positive. They're doing housekeeping every day in the rooms but just throwing away the trash and making the beds for the new arrivals. Showers were disgusting, toilets as well, floors - super dirty, they seem to clean these areas only once a week and we are 8 people in the room. Although people are usually awesome, met many great friends and had a wonderful time! I was in a mixed room which was super quiet yey! Kitchen is closed :(

    Close to South Beach, coffee shops and mini-market in the area. Nice decoration though there’s not really a place which invites you to socialize. I slept in an 8 dorm room with 2 toilets, spacious enough not to feel claustrophobic. Beds have a plug and light on the side. Mattress was not the most comfortable. There’s lockers big enough to fit a 50lt backpack. They could improve in terms of cleanliness and one of the receptionist could try harder not to seem annoyed whenever she needs to work.

    Total lack of engagement from staff, no kind of welcome and very routine service throughout. Staff hidden in office. Zero vibe in lobby. Dark/dingey throughout. Big room but tatty with wasted space-storage area with rail but no hangars, not even a back of chair to hang anything. Room floor dirty. Hairs from previous occupants. Dark with poor lighting. Grubby curtains that weren’t really able to open. Sockets in awkward places. Freezing draught from door to next room. Pool etc unavailable.

    The room was horribly smelly and reeked of mold. We had to leave it smelled so bad. Staff was unaccommodating and acted as if all the rooms smelled like that even when we went into our neighborhoods room. Not all the rooms smelled and she refused to move our room. They acted like it was fully booked when there was beds available on the website. Very frustrating and the smell was so bad we ledt and checked into a hotel.
