Very welcoming and helpful on arrival. Had asked in advance for a larger room as, we had a lot of luggage, and got a suite at the back! Excellent. Breakfast better than expected - fruit juice, cereal, bread, preserves, fruit, cakes, unlimited tea and coffee. Even though we had a kitchen there was no coffee maker or kettle which seemed... More

Our holiday, which included 4 nights at South Beach, was booked through Thos. Cook. They recommended the Ocean 5 Hotel and we were not disappointed. It was a comfortable boutique hotel. The room was more than adequate and the staff, especially Andy and Joshua, were friendly and very helpful with our local tours and transfers to Fort Lauderdale. The position... More

Only stayed one night, if I had booked more nights I would have moved. Can't believe Virgin rep recommended this place. Yes it's a great location but other than that there is nothing to recommend this place. The air con was so noisy it kept me awake and was really tired after our long journey, also it leaked all over... More

I was prepared to find a hotel that was not up to the standards I expect when I pay such an amount, but all in all, considering its location and age, I was actually quite happy with this place. Breakfast included.

We actually got moved to this hotel from another due to overbooking. Check-in was a little slow, only one person and some people were picking up a package, but other than that it was a breeze. We had a king size bed the room was made to feel modern. It was a good size room, plenty of space, a nice... More

We thankfully only had one night at this hotel and although its location is good for Miami beach, the hotel staff are unhelpful you have to walk through a restaurant to get to your room whilst people are eating their dinner. Then their is the room winner of several awards most uncomfortable bed and by far the noisiest air conditioning... More

Great location, nice room, ok staff. The most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in, breakfast an embarrassment, air con sounds like a spitfire taking off. Worst sleep I have had in my life, back was agony. Crying shame as could be so nice

I stayed at the Ocean Five Hotel at both the front and back end of a cruise. First, as stated in other reviews, the number one feature of this hotel is location. Just south of the happening bars and restaurants on South Beach. Close enough to walk, but far enough away so you don't hear the or feel the crowds.... More

Stayed here at my recent visit to Miami. Location is good as it's right next to the bottom of Lummus Park (whichs tarts at Ocean Drive & 5th street, the hotel is on Ocean Drive & 4th, and 5th), but is cheaper than the hotels right next to Lummus Park. Besides that, it's about 15 min walk to Lincoln Road... More

Not a great hotel. Air con a bit noisy and breakfast is not good. Location is excellent staff could not be more helpful rooms are clean and functional. We were staying over for a couple of nights following a cruise and found it to be entirely adequate. If we were returning to Miami we would probably stay elsewhere and pay... More
