As one of the newest hotels to the South Beach business, it has already grown to become the top place to stay in just over a year of opening their first American location. A testimony to a top experience, this is also backed up by Oriol Serra, CEO and co-founder of Smart Rooms Company who says:

“For us it’s key to offer a memorable accommodation experience that is above the expectations of our clients for its quality, originality and authenticity, and thanks to the efforts of a passionate, professional and close team.”
