Ocean Five Hotel

South Beach, Miami

Virgin rating

The hotel

A combination of two different Art Deco hotels that date back to the 1930s, Ocean Five is fantastically located for all Miami attractions. Family run with a laid-back atmosphere, guest rooms boast stunning Italian marble floors and modern amenities. There's a restaurant on site featuring outside terrace tables and garden lounge, and plenty of top-notch restaurants in the immediate area to take advantage of, as well as some very hip nightlife for those keen to party into the early hours! Set at the slightly quieter end of Ocean Drive, South Beach is just across the road, a wonderful place to laze away the day.

The front desk staff were helpful and friendly. The location was great! The hotel was rundown but was generally clean. This was a good place to spend just one night after our cruise. Overall this was a decent budget hotel to stay for a short time.

Clean, basic but completely adequate for a 2-night stay, reasonably priced, in a very good location, with good service. We had a room at the front, which is a bit noisy but not intrusively so - and the other rooms are quieter. I think the big tour operators use it, particularly at the beginning or end of cruises, and I can see why Recommend… Read more

I think the big tour operators use it, particularly at the beginning or end of cruises, and I can see why Recommend particularly if you want to be very close to Ocean Drive but not in the middle of the hustle. Get out on the boardwalk early before the heat of the day hits! Particular thanks to Andy on reception for looking after the jacket that I carelessly left in the room when we departed Read less

We had a two night stay here. The location is great and the owner was friendly. The room was a decent size, functional with no frills. It was clean and provided some nice toiletries. I would say ideal for a short stay and good value. They don't do breakfast but there is a super cafe attached to the hotel with a great breakfast choice. It's… Read more

The staff was not helpful basically front desk didnt care one bit basically told us if you dont like it you can leave. In order to get into the hotel we had to pass through a dining area of a restaurant which was very awkward and uncomfortable. We checked out 2 hours after we checked in. This was false advertising very misleading. Read less
