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.

Recommended by the virgin rep, so booked for an overnight trip. Car park was extra and really tight spaces for the huge hire car we had been given. Our room was next door, we had to walk through a full restaurant and up in the lift. The smoke alarm was going off as we checked it, piercing noise outside our room whilst it was being fixed. The room- basic with storage and noisy aircon with the blinds down. Opened the blind to a Bush and the wall of next door- defo no sea view in this one. Shower was cold so we all had to have cold showers and toilet was dodgy flushing. Walked outside, air con was leaking all over the corridor floor so reported at reception. They cleared it quickly. We stayed one night and loved miami as a place, location of the hotel was fab, came back early as wasn't sure what would happen when the restaurant closed. As others have said, when i booked it said free breakfast and when i asked they said there was no breakfast unless we paid in the restaurant. Would I stay again, probably not. Read less

The hotel is in an excellent location for Miami Beach at a ridiculously good price compared to the others nearby. The hotel itself is very basic. Furniture is not updated, walls haven’t been painted in while—but it is clean, the air conditioning works well, and the staff are nice. I’d stay here again on a budget.

Opened the room,first thing we noticed was a plug in freshener, believe me,after being in there for a bit we knew why. Damp and musty smell, air con hanging off the wall, dresser table if you can call it that had a leg hanging on by a thread. The bathroom was a joke, rusty taps, faulty flush on toilet. The list is endless. Thank god we were only booked in for a night. Look elsewhere, please xx Read less

This is an excellent location for visiting South Beach and it’s just on the edge of the rowdiness of Miami Beach. The other main benefits are that it’s opposite the beach and the staff are friendly. Although it’s probably quieter than some other hotels further up, you can hear the other guests when you’re in the hallway or the bathroom. The air… Read more

Although it’s probably quieter than some other hotels further up, you can hear the other guests when you’re in the hallway or the bathroom. The air con is very noisy and sometimes kept me awake. Overall, it’s a good budget/mid range hotel to stay in South Beach for a couple of nights. Read less

This little hotel was just right for us. We wanted a clean room with a kitchen, working TV and not much more as we planned to make some meals in( food is expensive in the area) yet spend our days out. The staff was absolutely lovely ( Especially Andy) . There were no added "resort"fees, and parking was an acceptable 25 dollars a day. I suggest… Read more
This little hotel was just right for us. We wanted a clean room with a kitchen, working TV and not much more as we planned to make some meals in( food is expensive in the area) yet spend our days out. The staff was absolutely lovely ( Especially Andy) . There were no added "resort"fees, and parking was an acceptable 25 dollars a day. I suggest asking for a room off the street for a quieter experience. As this hotel is right across the street from the beach, we will be staying there again. We showed our room to some friends who live across the street from the hotel and they too now know it's an affordable option for their out of tow.n guests. And, if you arrive without a car, there are plenty of little restaurants and places to shop within walking distance. Read less
