Amazing food, very friendly and attentive staff. We didn’t know the operating hours and we went to this restaurant early in the morning. They were not even opened, the staff was busy with prep. and setting up as they noticed we were waiting outside, one of the staff member left everything behind and setup a table for us first. How gentle and friendly could be someone who just started his/her shift (right person for this profession). I ordered Skirt Steak for my breakfast (Lol) do yourself a favor and try it. And my wife ordered French toast. The food was delicious. We revisit this place to try Benedict’s Eggs which were delicious too. Our favorite place in South Beach Miami. Thank you guys.

Hotel's Favourite
A small boutique hotel with an excellent location off the main noisy touristic strip of South Beach. Rooms are clean and the inclusive breakfast a very healthy continental choice with plenty of coffee served by extremely friendly waiting staff. Reception is manned and womaned all day and night by extremely pleasant and highly educated young staff from places such as Serbia and Chile and they cannot do enough for you. The roof top pool and relax area is such a bonus. You get deck chairs and umbrellas thrown in plus city bikes and free yoga classes at a local highly trained yoga centre. We love the familial atmosphere and the highly personal service this hotel provides and would stay here again.

Such a great location. Very comfortable beds. Friendly staff. The pool area though small was really pleasant. By booking directly we got free drinks and free breakfasts. I thought the food was quite good.

We stayed at the Local House a couple of nights for our anniversary. We loved how close the hotel is to the beach and also how quiet it was considering. The restaurant downstairs has delicious food and all the employees are very nice. We would definitely stay again.
