With a setting on historic Ocean Drive and trendy interiors, the Penguin Hotel seamlessly blends the old with the new.
This hotel has secured a close-to-the-action spot on Miami’s world-famous Ocean Drive. Restaurants, bars and historic buildings roll out from its doorstep. And it’s just a minute’s stroll from the beach.
You might be in the middle of the Art Deco district, but this place is modern to a T. Rooms are inspired by nature – think pebble wallpaper, marble countertops and glass chandeliers.

Great, apart from the hurricane!!
Stayed for 3 nights but had to leave 1day early due to the hurricane. You literally can't beat the location, right on ocean drive and about 15 steps to the beach. Rooms were really clean although not huge, but everything you need. Staff were great and the breakfast was good, lots of coffee. Will be back....when there's no hurricane.. lol.More
First trip to Miami
We had a family room for 3 nights, 2 adults and 2 teenagers, it had a sea view which was lovely. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast was just enough and lots of choice. This hotel is located on a bustling street with lots of restaurants to choose from and just a short walk from the shops. A great little hotel.More
A Great Location and a great staff
When I am in Miami Access to the beach is key . Here cross Ocean Drive and the beach is mine. The decor is filled with penguin statues and the accommodates are excellent for the price Close by the Restaurants are so pleasant There is nothing I could ask for more It's a small hotel but that's a plus for many.

Ok for one night
We booked this hotel last minute through bookings.com and the deal was good. The positives: +Good bed +close to the beach A bit disappointing: - the room was much smaller than we had expected based on the pictures online. Clearly we had a smaller room than those pictured online. - the loudest airco that we have had in any of the hotels the last weeks (this was the 5th place that we stayed) - if you don't eat scrambled eggs, the breakfast becomes small because the base is scrambled eggs with some choice of meat to which you add something from a menu (i.e., 2 pancakes, 1 bagel or a cup of yoghurt with granola). The scrambled eggs can't be replaced by anything else. Tea and juice are ok but no question from one of the 3 or 4 waiters walking around for a refill. I'm happy that we didn't pay the original price for this hotel because you mainly pay for the good location. However for 1 night it worked fine.More
The picture of perfection
The Penguin Miami Beach is the picture of perfection! Everything about the hotel was exceptional, and I don't give praise lightly. Although we arrived yesterday but I'm expecting the same treatment and experience I had on my previous three visits within 2 years. And I'll continue for numerous reasons. Starting from the Awesome staff (SPECIALLY the girl with the great smile at the front desk "Melis Yaz", not to mention how clean stylish, roomy. well equipped and comfortable our rooms were. And the excellent service in both bar where we had lunch and the restaurant where we had breakfast and dinner. Food was beyond good and great value for money and service in both places attentive and efficient. I could go on but suffice it to say I was very pleased with my stay, I hope to be back for a longer visit in the future. The exceptional staff know the true value of customer service. Thank you all for such a memorable vacation! More
