“Best Boutique near the beach in SoBe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This small, updated hotel on Collins Avenue at 13th Street in South Beach is PERFECT for a 1 or 2 night stay. The location allowed easy walking access to South Point Park (to watch the cruise ships leave), Lincoln Avenue for great people watching and Hispaniola Way for the European dining scene. We also took our beach chairs and spent our second day there. The entire hotel was very clean. Our room was freshly painted with a contemporary feel. The linens were fresh and the bed was comfortable. We asked for a quiet room and got room 307 on the top floor on the south side of the building. The entire staff was very accommodating to our every need. We did not hear any of the usual South Beach party scene noise in this room.
We go to South Beach often and have stayed in many different hotels. This by far is the best deal and we look forward to booking there again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side of the building, 3rd floor, room 307 or near there.

We wanted to combine our 1st year anniversary and our summer vacations. We wanted a place well located in South Beach and at the same time calm and relaxing. We needed wifi, morning coffee and some good advice regarding the restaurants of the area. We found it all – and much more than that! La Flora was the most welcoming, unpretentious and accommodating hotel we’ve ever been to! We are not exaggerating: We’ve booked for 12 nights and asked for a quite room, they found out about our anniversary and not only they’ve upgrade us to a King Suite, but they also surprised us with a bottle of champagne in our room! Do I need to say more? Clean beach towels every day, excellent housekeeping and a big smile from all the staff, especially the General Manager, Ms. Gottuso who showed us true care and hospitality. Thank you La Flora for making this summer a very special one. We will certainly be back soon!

Stayed in this hotel for the 3rd time back in March during WMC and was as usually overwhelmed. Staff is friendly and Management are beyond accommodating . Rooms are spacious and clean. And in my opinion this is one of the best hotels In South Beach with a very low price. Each room has a flat screen Tv, Fridge and coffee maker. And did I mention free breakfast every morning with some freshly baked muffins ?:)
Love this place :) Will be back soon :)

P.S. Thank you miss Rose and miss Teren for making my stay lovely as usual :) Xoxo

This is a great Collins Ave hotel, there is no glamour just a hotel. It is south beach in the club area so be aware that there will be noise till all hours of the night. Remember this when booking most hotels in this area, expect noise. Check in was great, we booked just a few hours earlier. There is a complimentary drink with our check in and beach towels and umbrellas if you need them. Parking in the garage across the street if you will not drive anywhere till you are checking out. If you need your car at all during your stay, get valet.

Room is nice nothing to complain there. the internet does though get spotty if you are in the back rooms so if you are in say 104 or 204 then internet is tough. boutique hotel at its best and the people staying there are usually from every country. Breakfast is what you expect and what you need for a beach day.

Our room was next to alley and the club so there is bass all night.

Room Tip: Room 104 is by the alley and next to the club, if you can sleep with lots of bass this is your room...

We stayed here for one night in July 2013 a part of our honeymoon.

On mentioning that it was our honeymoon we were upgraded to a beautiful suite with perhaps the biggest bed I've ever seen! 10 minutes later we were brought a complementary bottle of champagne which we really enjoyed.

La Flora is located in the perfect place to explore South Beach and for the location is very reasonably priced.

The next morning when we came down for breakfast (which is fairly basic but does the job) we met the owner who was so friendly. She was very relaxed about our checkout time to let us have max time exploring Miami before leaving and gave us loads of tips of places to visit in California which was our next destination.

I recently stayed in this hotel for the weekend and it was very nice! Much larger than hotels have stayed in before in Miami and sort of reminded me of a studio apartment. Bathroom is a decent size and had a shower curtain so that the water from the shower was not spraying everywhere. Located just a block from the beach and Ocean Ave, so I would say a great location. Friendly, helpful staff. Comfortable beds, but could use better pillows :-) No black-out curtains, which I always look forward to while on vacation, and also no safe, no gym and no pool. But overall, I enjoyed this hotel.
