For the first time I slept in a 4 bed room and was very satisfied...the beds were comfortable...there was enough room for everyone and their Luggage...also the locker was big enough. The air condition was working and I had great roommates. In the bathroom could have been a brighter light...what was missing is a bigger shelf or maybe another hook...

This was a really nice place. The beach is literally 5 minutes away and it was gorgeous! There is a cafe down 27th street and Collins with amazing Spanish food (Tostones!!) and its great to catch the bus to south beach or even walk down. The only cons were the cleaning and pool. The room (4 person) smelled like mildew...

I've stayed at the Freehand two times now. And both times the staff has been great, the room too. But the best part is the vibe here. The Arc Deco, vintage feel. The pool, the bar, the decor. Everything just creates a priceless atmosphere. And both of my times here, I've made good friends I still stay in touch with....

When traveling to Miami I had my hopes set on staying at the Freehand. I had stayed at their location in Chicago and loved the concept. However, once I checked in I realized the Miami location was not up to par. The front desk was not very helpful, the room was very small, unkempt and the a/c did not function...

Definitely a new hipster hangout place. I loves the whole concept. The cocktail bar is unbelievable. The food was super tasty, I love the crudo and the Guave Tres leches was out of this world. Cant wait to go back!
