Situated directly on Ocean Drive, south of Fifth Street, in a neighbourhood better known as “SoFi” to the Miami Beach locals, Room Mate Lord Balfour is just a stone's throw away from the beach and Lummus Park. Nestled in the historic Art Deco district, Room Mate Lord Balfour is within close proximity of the city’s ever-expanding arts and culture scene, shopping options, restaurants and nightlife hotspots.

"Good for a budget trip...NOT FOR FAMILIES"
The hotel is fine...it's clean and simple. Location is great for SOFI. The folks that work there are very nice. The walls are very thin. All that said, I would not go with kids though. There were some interesting guests, to say the least, at night...Including some of the "Professional" variety as well as some that "wanted to bust a cap" in another guest. This isn't necessarily the fault of the hotel as they can't control who books rooms there, however I do feel it's something that should be mentioned if you are thinking of coming with kids or looking for a classier hotel.
"An Attractive, Comfortable Boutique Hotel"
My adult sons, their friends, and I stayed at the Room Mate Lord Balfour for one night the night before my oldest son's bachelor party cruise out of the Port of Miami. We liked the hotel very much. The décor is attractive, the service impeccable, and the beds most comfortable. We also liked the hotel's location, conveniently situated near the beach/ocean and in the midst of South Beach bars, clubs, restaurants, and shopping. Many of us also enjoyed the hotels bar and patio. The only criticism we had of the three rooms we had that night is that the bathrooms are extremely small. Other than that, we were completely pleased with our accommodations - which came at a very reasonable price by the way.
"The absolute best family trip ever"
First of all let me just say that Veronica is worth her weight in gold! She was helpful from the first phone call and booking to the moment that we checked in. We explained that we have a child with some personal issues and she immediately understood and took absolute wonderful care of our entire family. When she was busy Devin stepped right in and seamlessly helped with the situation and it was clear that the two of them had communicated our needs so that there would be no problems. You could see that Devin really loves his job and cares for the guests. .The hotel is perfection. The service is excellent The service is exceptional and the staff is so friendly especially in the breakfast area, sweet kind and helpful. We will definitely come back and I already trying to make plans to see if we can be back in the summer and again next April because this is a special place. Veronica made us feel like we were part of the family like we were at home and all of our needs have been met. She's really a special person and we appreciate so much all of her help and assistance and frankly love and care. Please feel free to contact us or email us if you have any further questions we would be more than happy to share this great experience!
"A very relaxing two nights"
Checked into RM Lord Balfour on Thursday and stayed two nights. Room was clean and had plenty of space for me, as well as everything I needed to feel comfortable. Staff were super friendly and made you feel at home. Food was good at the partner restaurant, Chef Vincent's. I had lunch and dinner there and was not disappointed. I would recommend Lord Balfour and it's restaurant to anybody.
"Outstanding hotel and staff--highly recommend!"
My friend and I stayed here partially because of the location (close to the start of our triathlon on the beach) and partially because of price. The hotel is beautifully decorated, and I've never experienced such helpful and accommodating staff at any hotel. I will be returning and will definitely recommend it to everyone I know.
