Our room was confortable, clean, quiet even the night. The staff is very nice and helpfull, mainly Carlos.
There is a valet parking but either a public parking next and other options too (Collins Avenue is difficult to park!).
The hotel is very near Ocean Av and Lincoln Road (just 4 blocks), good option of restaurants and stores in the neighboorhood.

The hotel lobby rocks, salsas & rumbas until midnight so don't plan on turning in before then! La Flora offers HUGE rooms with giant screen TV's and oversized baths. For $169. we stayed in room 209 right above the lobby so it was very loud until midnight. Solution was easy, we enjoy the party! South beach is a step back in time to the 50's so set your expectations. This is not a chain hotel but a true art deco boutique. Our room was actually a two room suite and had a large living area with couch, tables, two chairs, desk, kitchenette w/small refrigerator. Double doors separated the bedroom where a very large screen TV hangs on the wall, floor space to accommodate a full size chaise lounge, dresser, two bedside tables and a separate closet with ironing board and iron! The lobby also offers a free continental breakfast. The staff is friendly, attentive and very helpful. The location is perfect. A Starbucks is less than a block away, the beach is one block and the colorful flavor of Espanola Way and Lincoln Streets about 5 blocks.

Room Tip: Rooms above the lobby are noisy at night.

Enjoying a little Salsa & Rumba on a Saturday night is a must when in South Beach and of course being able to experience it in our lounge bar is wonderful. La Flora is a true Art Deco hotel dating back to 1929 and as previous guests have mentioned … this is not your run of the mill luxury but comfortable clean with friendly staff to assist in your everyday needs and the location is just perfect.
It was my pleasure to meet you all and thank you for your kind review … until the next time !

My wife and I recently stayed in this art deco boutique hotel in the heart of South Beach. The service was excellent. Luis the front desk agent offered great service, all hotel staff was kind and attentive. This hotel is an excellent choice for those looking to enjoy the famous South Beach nightlife as well as the beach,shops and restaurants. The rooms were clean,the beds are comfortable and the rates are reasonable.
Would definitely come back to La Flora Hotel!

My fiance and I stayed at La Flora in October. This is a boutique hotel and true art deco gem. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel with a swimming pool, you had best stay somewhere else. However, if you are looking for a value for money, basic and clean hotel with a bit of character, you will love La Flora. For the price, you really couldn't ask for a better location. It is one street back from South Beach and is perhaps only a 5 minute walk to the water.

There are many shops and restaurants nearby and it is also a short distance from the Lincoln Rd shopping precinct. La Flora provides complimentary continental breakfast, beach towels, drink at the bar on arrival and free wi-fi. Our room was on the ground floor, so there was no view. We were also worried it would be noisy as it was situated quite close to the (small) bar. However, we didn't hear a thing. The bed was clean and comfortable and the staff, one in particular on the front desk (unfortunately, we didn't get his name!), were really friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

True Art Deco Gem and yes if you’re looking for art deco character then this is the place … upon arrival you will notice the historic Art Deco style façade of the building and once you step into the lobby, the original 1929 terrazzo floor and marble wainscot will further accentuate La Flora’s rich history. Perfect location and our mission is to make each and every guest feel comfortable and enjoy all that South Beach has to offer.
A warm thank you for sharing your comments ... we wish you all the best and look forward to seeing you both again!

My husband and I stayed here for one night this past weekend. The hotel is definitely in a great location (walking distance to the beach, shopping, countless restaurants/bars, and Lincoln Rd). The room was plain, but clean. The bathroom seemed a little run-down. All was well enough until the evening. We didn't know that the hotel is directly in front of Club Mansion. So from the time we got home at about 12:30 a.m. until roughly 4:00 a.m. our room was shaking with bass from the night club, so we couldn't sleep. I called the front desk to ask what the noise was, and the person working at the front desk simply said, "That's Club Mansion behind us." I had read all of the past Trip Advisor reviews and couldn't believe more people hadn't mentioned the noise. When we got up the next morning, we went to the lobby for our complementary breakfast. The selection was extremely slim (bagels and cereal), but weirder than that was the fact that they had someone taking orders. I've never seen that at a continental breakfast, and I'm not sure why they did it. But the person was rude and had the nerve to have a tip jar out...for toasting a bagel that I should have toasted myself! I'd imagine this place is good for people who are going to hit the nightclub scene and don't intend to go to sleep until the wee hours of the morning. Other than that, I wouldn't recommend it. I definitely won't be back there myself.

Firstly I would like to say how very sorry l am that we did not act efficiently to take care of the noise coming from Mansion, and your absolutely right that past reviews do not mention this and that’s because this is an isolated situation and my night staff are fully aware to nip any disturbance in the bud but on this occasion they failed … also breakfast is complimentary continental and we have a member of staff who personally takes care to make sure everything runs smoothly and although you thought she was taking orders she was actually preparing toasted bagels for each guest request as our prior experience without her had become quite chaotic and messy. Every member of staff at La Flora takes great pride in providing our guests with a comfortable and pleasant hotel experience and I would like for you to return and have the La Flora experience that you should have had ... I can be reached directly at 305 531 3406 and I sincerely look forward to the chance of welcoming you and your husband back to the La Flora Hotel.
