Staff was efficient. Room was spacious, with kitchenette, on close inspection, furniture was tired, room looked boutique-y but lots of cracks, bad finishing and cheap furniture. Still an average rating for the room is fair as long as you realise this is a weak 3 star hotel. Clean. Continental breakfast with room is a joke - fake juice, crappy yogurts,... More

This art deco hotel is less than a block away from the beach and very close to the south beach night life (about a block away). The room we had overlooked the avenue and you'd think that at night with all the activity so close that it would be noisy but it was not. The room was large and comfortable... More

Having stayed here last year and had an enjoyable time, the second visit has proved to be even better. The location of this hotel is ideal if you like being in the heart of things but like peace at night. The staff are WONDERFUL and so helpful and full of information. The room we were in had been upgraded from... More

I looked at the review of this hotel after we had booked it, i so wish we had looked at the review first. Only been in the room 5 minutes when a giant, and i mean giant, cockroach crawled out from under the bed. We insisted we were moved to another room, which was better, but 1 morning i killed... More

We had the "fortune" of experiencing three different rooms. Unlike Goldilocks though, none were just right. The first had a strong odor of pee. We quickly switched out and were given the only room available that night: the handicap-accessible room which is literally part of the restaurant. Cruel joke to play on those handicapped as youre corced to hear everything... More

Great location on South Beach at the quieter end of the strip. Rooms basic but clean had flat screen TV and iPod dock, complimentary toiletries of nice quality. Air conditioning very loud. Continental breakfast included but very limited - toast, cornflakes and some little muffins, coffee and orange juice fine. Overnight valet parking €25. Only here for one night but... More

We stayed a couple nights at this boutique hotel. I was happy to see the rooms were updated. We were on the first floor so our room did not have a view, it was covered since the restaurant was next door. The front desk staff was not great, and the breakfast consisted of toast, cereal, fruit, yogurt, and muffins. It... More

As someone else also wrote, all hotels in South Beach are expensive, but this one is decent compared to quality. Staff was very friendly and helpful (one of them even spoke Finnish). Breakfast was useless, though, even with Miami Beach standards.

First off hotels in SoBe are expensive but that's the price for being near the beach and other attractions. Ocean 5 was a great hotel located at the south end of Ocean Dr. Hotel was very close to both the beach and the nearby restaurants/bars. Close, but far enough away that late night noise was at a minimum. Room was... More
