South Beach Week
Great location and competent friendly staff. Main drawback was the severe lack of light in the room making it difficult for my wife to apply makeup to her great frustration. I suspect this is a result of the age of the room so that additional overhead lighting or more illumination in the bathroom was not technically feasible.

Wow wow wow
The Balfour was an incredible place to stay for our mini moon. We loved everything about it from the modern rooms to the quiet location but loved being a short walk to all the attractions. The service was incredible and we never had a single issue. We will definitely be back as soon as possible!

terrible hotel
This was by far the worst hotel I've stayed in. The walls are paper thin and you can here eveyrthing that is happening above and next to your room. As a gold member, I would highly recomend that you do not stay at this hotel.
