Founded in 2005 by two young travelers, Fede Lavagna and Lucho GonzÃ¡lez, who first crossed paths in a hostel while trekking around the world, Viajero was created for travelers and remote workers alike. feel welcome and at home, wherever they are. Influenced by the founders’ Colombian and Uruguayan roots, the hotel group offers one-of-a-kind hostels and hotels with a âfree Latin American soulâ in the coolest destinations from Mexico to Argentina.
In an era when social media has pushed hotel and hostel owners to have generic designs that will appeal to globalized tastes, Viajero is aiming for a more localized and bold approach in its layout. At each Viajero property, travelers will benefit from a local experience, led by a fun and empathetic team of hosts, where they can work, relax, meet like-minded people, and experience the cultural nuances of their destination. The well-appointed and furnished rooms are private rooms or shared dormitories. Each booking includes access to a range of bespoke amenities not typically found at traditional inns, such as swimming pools, salsa lessons, terraces with panoramic city views, and in some locations, even spas.
Happy to bottle that nomadic perspective and bring that feeling to Miami Beach, Viajero Miami will be remodeling and rebranding The Stiles Hotel to offer stylish, affordable and varied accommodation options in a historic Art Deco property. Unlike a traditional hostel, which typically only offers shared rooms, Viajero Miami caters to all travelers by also offering private rooms with the modern amenities that come with a stay in a standard hotel, including private bathrooms, televisions and personal safes. Starting at $ 30 for shared dorms and $ 90 for private rooms per night, all rooms can accommodate between two and eight travelers and are equipped with free Wi-Fi, individual lockers, private bathrooms in marble to ensure minimal sharing and comfortable beds that promise a real rest after a day of adventures in South Florida. Inspired by both its South Florida environment and the joy of traveling the world, Viajero’s first Miami property will embody a tropical chic vibe with custom interiors, wallpapers and furniture handcrafted by Colombian artisans.
The amenities of Viajero Miami will not disappoint. Remote workers can log into the “office” from a meeting area that doubles as a coworking space, or they can choose to work from the library located near the lobby. Steps away, Viajero Miami will retain Swizzle Rum Bar & Drinkery, a sophisticated handcrafted cocktail bar and underground bar that opened with The Stiles Hotel in 2019. With the transition to Viajero Miami comes an exciting addition to the hotel from charm, Delirio South Beach, a sexy new 70s-inspired indoor-outdoor bar with decor that reflects the brand’s Colombian roots that includes a retro pool with white string lights, hanging disco balls, plush pool beds with bright yellow awnings and a bright, quirky pool background with colorful geometric shapes. A whimsical color palette and playful design set the scene: think yellow fringed umbrellas and pastel and multi-colored shade sails providing guests with respite from the sun. The swimming pool and its surrounding bar will create the perfect backdrop for the Instagram feeds that are the envy of travelers.
Viajero Miami will be located at 1120 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33139.
