Unimpressive room and facilities but great location
Met expectations , fine hotel for quick couple of days
The staff were very welcoming and helped to make for a comfortable stay. The hotel is not boutique - though offers clean space with a certain charm.
The door to our room was not fire safe. It had significant gaps and would not have provided 10, let alone 30 minute protection. They should open the rooftop deck/terrace to all guests, rather than solely the top suite. They’d make it a better hotel experience for all their guests. If one were inclined for room with private terrace, you would choose a nicer hotel.
Simple little getaway for a short stay..
Very clean bathroom, comfortable bed, quiet amongst the craziness of South beach, friendly staff. Small room was not an issue as we only used the hotel for getting dressed and sleeping during our 2 night stay.
Not much storage/desk space.
I love it! It was close to the beach, the rooms were nice and the free breakfast in the morning was great. The staff was pleasant. Oh and they give two comlplimentary drinks which was nice as well. The best hotel on the strip that I've been to
Room Pictures advertised did not belong to this pr
Location of property was on Ocean street which is a prime location in Miami beach. Staff were nice, specially Alayna and Charlee who helped us Move to a larger and ocean view room from improper converted guestroom 106 which was by the lobby and kitchen with a lot of noise.
Building is very old and poorly maintained, the carpet in elevator has stains on it and is secured with a blue tape to the floor. I studied the hotels around Miami beach and picked up Penguin for advertised location, cleanness and price. Unfortunately room pictures presented at time of purchase didn't belong to this property location and was taken from different property they have recently merged with (Presidential hotel on Collins street and newly build villa building on the back) with new appliances and wet bar, nice curtains which all were missing in this location. I would rate building condition for Penguin "one and half" stars at most.
The location was wonderful and walking distance to everything. The room was inviting with style.
The beds were not comfortable and the air conditioning system needs updating from old fashion window units.
Location - right off the beach - great restaurant on site - start of a great strip to walk and be entertained!!
I liked the location beach front close to restaurants and casual dance clubs.An older hotel with boutique stylish qualities. Good quality for the money.
Restaurant in front over rated for the price. Go a few properties over for a better breakfast deal.
Great location, really friendly and helpful staff. Front porch cafe is excellent however it's moving to 1458 Ocean Drive in Nov - still very close and worth visiting.
Only negative is the beds are really soft and uncomfortable which will make me book elsewhere next time.
I liked the balcony and the fact that we had our own floor. I would definitiely go to this hotel and get the ame room.
Kingsize bed. Elevator has pinguins in it.
The staff was very helpful and gave us all the information needed. The room was nice and clean. Moreover, the location was great - the beach was just across the street and all the main streets (Washington Ave., Collins Ave, Lincoln Street) were at walking distance.
Nicely desgined room, the adjacent Front Porch Café with extremely considerate staff
The room was not very tidy
Close to the beach, nice furniture.
Room made always very late. Restaurant closed for dinner.
Breakfast on the front porch
