“Great home away from home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

My husband and I spent 5 nights at La Flora post cruise. We found it welcoming and very comfortable. The desk staff was always ready to answer questions and the manager Ros, was friendly and anxious to please. We were given a large two bed suite which worked out perfectly for our longer stay. The added space was great. Great air con , room frig, light breakfast and drinks in the afternoons were nice amenities. We had only one concern which was the bottom of the bathtub was very slippery. We solved the problem with using an extra bath mat on the bottom of the tub when we showered. The room staff left us a fesh one every day, figuring out our concern. Location of this hotel couldn't be better. It was a little loud on late Sat. night. But that was the only night we heard more groups of people or traffic. We will definitely return and too offer this as a great spot to experience the "real" South Beach. If you aren't looking for a large resort hotel with pools and restaurants and high rates, but want to be in the center of everything, book here and you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: We had a two room corner suite on third floor. Lots of windows added lots of nice light. eing lower...

A very welcoming and perfectly placed little hotel on Collins in easy walking distance of Ocean, Washington and Lincoln. Comfortable quiet and well-maintained room with a good shower. Effective aircon, decent continental breakfast and a free cocktail late afternoon. Highly recommended.

Stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. The staff (Luiz, Thomas) was super friendly and we were warmly welcomed. They had an open ear all the time, we´d ask them. The hotel is in the right position between Washington Ave and Ocean drive, just a couple yards from nice an reasonable restaurants on Washington and the beach on Ocean Drive. The rooms where clean, rather large and freshly renovated. We´ll come back.
Wir waren 2 Nächte im Hotel. Das Personal (Luis, Thomas) war sehr nett und hat uns super freundlich begrüsst und uns einfach ein gutes Willkommensgefühl gemacht. Das Hotel liegt ideal zwischen Washington Ave und Ocean Drive, nur ein paar Schritte zum Strand oder zu günstigen Restaurants. Wir kommen wieder!

I recently had a 3-night stay here (Feb 3-5, 2014) and was very impressed by the friendliness and professionalism of the staff, the quality of my room, and the excellent location of the hotel. The hotel has style and I would recommend it without reservation.

Art deco hotel walking distance to all the action on Collins and Ocean Dr. Walking distance to lots of shopping, restaurants, decent night clubs, and 1 1/2 blks to the beach!
By far my favorite hotel, and we will be back! Thank you La Flora for a wonderful stay!

My bf and I stayed at La Flora the end of November 2013 for his 30th bday. We had a GREAT time! First, the location is perfect! I cannot stress this enough! We walked every single day all over the city. The beach (1 1/2 blks away, feels like less), shops (high end and low end), restaurants, attractions, night clubs, ect.. South Beach has it all, & La Flora was a PERFECT location! PS. this might get long, as I have lots of good things to say & a few tips to share!

One of the reasons we chose this hotel was because we had rented a car for the week, and La Flora offers reasonable rates for parking the vehicle overnight compared to other hotels in the same area. I think it was $20/day, but you may want to double check. It takes just a couple minutes for the attendants to grab your car (call down to the front desk, it will be ready when you are!). We did a day trip to Key West (LOVED IT! about 3 + hours from the hotel to the southern most point in the US), and we did another day trip to the Florida Everglades (LOVED that as well! I would recommend Everglades Holiday Park). Side note* the hotel has a pay-by-the-hour parking lot next to it which we used a few times out of convenience! We both thought it was just another little perk for our needs!

Next up, the staff! Every single person we talked to at the front desk was so helpful, and let us be annoying and ask a ton of questions! :) It was the same couple of guys working our entire week (until the last day) & we enjoyed chatting with them as they were very friendly! Even letting us check in hours early with no extra charge the first day! On our last day, we had mentioned that it was Josh's 30th a few days prior, and the woman checking us out (we think she must have been manager, or GM) waived our Hotel Fees! She said if the hotel would have known, they could have done something more! It was so sweet & an extra nice perk at the end of our trip! BTW, beware that all the hotels we looked at had random Hotel Fees that were like $10/day for the duration of your stay. I havent seen this in a lot of other cities/states. Also, the woman who made breakfast every morning was very sweet! Not very chatty, but super attentive & we enjoyed stopping in the lobby for a bite before heading out everyday! Lastly, the car attendants we pleasant & quick! Dont forget to tip the attendants and your breakfast lady!

Overall, I would recommend this place to everyone. Its a little Art Deco boutique hotel, in a perfect location, and not so many frills that the price sky-rockets! My bf and I both had a blast in South Beach & will be back again staying at the same hotel! We wanted something really nice, with a few amenities, not too spendy & great location... & we got it!!

Last minute pointers** gratuities are added onto the bill in Miami Beach so read up on that** food was kinda pricey all over the city ($50 average for us to sit down to eat) so keep that in mind ** everyone in FL (especially the Keys) moves at a much slower pace** south beach/tourist drivers are kinda crazy** relax, & enjoy yourself!!!!! We Love South Beach & Miami!!!
