I was concerned that the relatively low price would be reflective in the conditions but I was pleasantly surprised to find it a very well kept, clean and neatly designed facility. The staff clearly tries very hard to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The rooms are a blend of modern and 50's retro style with a huge shower and extremely comfortable pillows! My favorite part though, was the beautiful courtyard/pool/bar area that was like an oasis. Surrounded by a thick hedge of plant-life which keeps it private from outside the facility, but still gives you a gorgeous view of the western sky as the sun sets at night. Nice, well stocked bar right there by the pool, and they had a free (mini) concert with a DJ performing there in the courtyard. If it hadn't been Miami Music Week, I might have considered staying to just party at the hotel! In the morning, I woke up a little earlier than my girlfriend to go for a swim. It was such a beautiful morning, quiet, with just a few guests catching some rays by the pool, and there was a small photo shoot for a clothing magazine going on at the other side of the hotel - pretty cool, and understandable that they would pick the Vagabond to do a photoshoot because the decor all over the place really is neat and would be fitting for a retro-type clothing line. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and I'm very happy because I know exactly where I'm going the next time I come back to Miami - The Vagabond Hotel! On the way in from the interstate, I had to drive through some sketchy neighborhoods.
It was near from our point of interest and easy to find once it is in the Biscayne Blv. The water of shower was too cold
Different that is usual in US, the room that I did stay has no carpet. They used a kind of wood floor, what permit the room is cleaner. Very friendly staff. We were three people, but the put only two towels.
location The linens had a strong bleach smell that bothered me
Praticidade ! I loved the hotel and it is the second time I stayed there .The only thing I would like to complain was about the noise coming from the laundry .Early at 8 in the morning, the staff, doing their jobs of laundry talking very loud and with other people .Like 3 or 4 . I know my room was close to the laundry but I think at least that early they should be more quiet in respect to the clients.
Free parking and easy access, free wireless internet. A bit noisy along this road.
