“Central location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

This hotel is close to everything. Breakfast was not so great, but there are plenty of places to eat out anyway. The valet parking was speedy, but you have to pay in cash only and we were not expecting this. It wasn't however a problem. The only negative comment I have is that the rooms are tiny, we were mid road trip and because parking is valet, we needed to bring all our luggage in. This meant we didn't have a lot of space. In all, it's a really nice hotel.

Sounds like you both had a nice stay and the couple of niggles that you refer too are relatively easy for me to explain as we like our guests to be happy and comfortable …we may have one or two rooms that are average size otherwise they are very spacious and breakfast is complimentary continental which has a variety for all taste buds and enough to get your day going ! Being in a central location provides easy access to explore everything South Beach has to offer. We thank you for staying with us and hope to see you again !

We were wonderfully received by the friendly staff, they helped us with everything all the time. Our suite was spacious and clean. They were very helpful with the valet parking and our lost valuables. Thanx La Flora! Jan and Johan.

Clean, comfortable and friendly. Pretty much all we needed for a weekend in South Beach. The staff at the front desk were great, check in was quick and efficient. Valet parking was expensive but seeing as we're from London, we weren't as shocked as we could have been. The king size room was spacious and we had great storage space. The bathroom was good, however I would suggest a lower bath tub to step in and out of, it was almost dangerous trying to have a shower after a few drinks in the room! The hotel itself was small, with a basic breakfast served on the bar however it is Miami, you have to expect it! The free welcome drink was a lovely touch and although the cocktails were not the greatest, the bar was very decently priced. Personally I found the hotel a little cold LITERALLY, the AC was always on full blast. However it may have been because we visited when it was a little cooler and unfortunately a little rainy! There are plenty of great restaurants in the area and the beach is a 5 minute walk away. A great hotel if you're looking for a value for money hotel in the South Beach area which is clean and where the staff are great!

Clean, comfortable and friendly are excellent ingredients for a great stay and we are very happy that is all you needed to make your weekend enjoyable. Personally myself as the GM and also being a fellow Brit, l sometimes find the Lobby AC a little chilly but I put it down to our blue blood ! Our wonderful staff offer customer service in a friendly and efficient manner and we appreciate you taking the time to share your comments in a lovely review. Thank you for being our guests and we look forward to seeing you again !

My friend and I stayed during the weekdays for a quick get away. We used credit card points from two separate cards. When we arrived they had already made sure we had the same room both nights without us having to ask. After the manager saw she had a larger suite available she upgraded us at no charge! I stay in about 3 hotels a week for my job and I have never encountered such a friendly and caring staff. Every singer person was amazing and SO friendly. I would stay there in a heartbeat again just for the staff! The rooms were great and they also had a nice free breakfast in the morning. The location was also perfect. It was nice not to be right on the busy Ocean Dr road but only a minute walk from it instead. Also don't forget to get your free welcome drink when you arrive! Nice touch! If this is your first time to Miami Beach, definitely rent bikes from DecoBikes. They have kiosks all over (especially near the beach) that allow you to self rent a beach cruiser. Important tip: Even if you rent for more than 30 minutes, make sure you only ride in increments of 30 minutes or less or you will get charged more money. Make sure you find the next kiosk (take a map), return the bike and then take a new one. Definitely ride down to Nikki Beach, much nicer beach then near the hotel.

Everyone loves a quick getaway and thank you for choosing our hotel and for a wonderful review.
Our mission is to make each and every guest comfortable and we are very proud of our customer service skills which enable us as a team to provide a nice welcoming experience and being so centrally located really helps as we are one block from the beach and just as close to many restaurants and nightlife.
Thank you so much for taking time to share your comments and we look forward to seeing you again !

My husband and I stayed at La Flora for 3 nights in September and we had a very nice experience here. We were upgraded to a King Suite which was much appreciated as Miami Beach hotels can be very limited in space. The front desk and valet service was great. The continuity of service is also something that is exceptional. I booked over the phone, was checked in and checked out (unfortunately we had to leave at some point) by Taryn who was simply delightful. We had a lovely exchange the morning of check out and I will never forget her warm personality. My husband and I also met the hotel manager Ros due to a slight mishap with the AC unit in our room. She was very accomodating and had things taken care of right away. I would recommend this hotel as the location is great, the staff are very nice and the valet service was reliable. Hope to see La Flora again in the future!

Upon check in we were greeted by a very friendly front desk staff. They made us feel very welcome. The manager offered to upgrade us to a bigger room for free since it was open the days we were there. The bartenders, front desk, and managers were extremely helpful. The room was clean. The beds were comfortable enough for us. It is in very close walking distance to the beach, shopping, and all kinds of dining/night life places. We were very pleased with the stay and plan to stay here again in March.
