“Great location, great value...a little tight!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Can't complain about the value nor the location; if you want to be in South Beach this is a near perfect location to walk everywhere. Hotel staff were as friendly and helpful as they could possibly be. Breakfast was pretty much bagels and hardboiled eggs, got old within two days but lots of options around the hotel. Rooms are very clean, but even for just two people and two suitcases the rooms are a tight fit. It is an old hotel so the rooms are not what one would expect in hotels now. BUT...it is what it is, if you want a five star ultra modern hotel...don't stay here. If you want value and location at the expense of luxury, then this is a great choice. They also give you beach towels and the beach is only two blocks east. One complaint is the noise of the AC/fan, loud enough to disrupt your sleep if you're a light sleeper to begin with.

A side benefit.....SPIGA Restaurant is right next store...some of the best Italian food I've ever had and tremendous service ( $$$$).

Room Tip: The upper floor rooms offer some insulation from the urban din that continues into the late night.

My husband and I flew into Miami late September. We decided to wing it and did not have reservations anywhere. That almost turned into a nightmare until we discovered La Flora. Located between 13th and 14th Sts. South Beach. Louis greeted us at the check in desk and he was very very nice and accommodating. He gave us a very reasonable price as well as a free cocktail at their bar and it also came with a continental breakfast. The room was cozy, clean and comfortable. Some construction going on outside the building, but we honestly hardly heard a thing. There is, however, a valet charge of $25 daily or you can pay $20 to park in the parking garage nearby. The upside of valet is that you can use your car anytime and only pay the one fee versus paying every time you leave the garage. The bartender was equally as nice and very helpful in suggesting entertainment and food. They make all of their mixers and do not use store bought syrups. In the morning we asked for a late check out and again they obliged our request. He even informed us that return guests receive 10% off their next stay. Everyone was so nice and we will definitely be returning. It was a block from the beach and 3 blocks from Lincoln where all the nightlife and action was. Thanks La Flora you made our anniversary very special! Marguerite G.

La Flora Hotel was our last stop at the end of a 2 month driving holiday through the US and Canada before we returned home. Having stayed at approximately 20 different hotels/motels during our travels, we found La Flora to be one of the best for a range of reasons. It starts from the time you walk in the door, with the front desk staff (Carlos, Luis and John) who are all very welcoming and friendly. The rooms are a good size, very clean and quiet, but importantly excellent value for the money. The hotel is perfectly located, only minutes away from Ocean Ave where all the restaurants and bars are positioned and just across the road from the beach. We must make special mention of the Hotel Manager, Ros whom we spoke to during the course of our stay. She is extremely friendly and the true professional. The bartender Ashley, easily engaged with all the hotel guests, made a great cocktail, but one warning, don't bet the house on her footy tips. We would happily return to La Flora, because it is a special place run by special people in a great location.

This hotel was amazing! I went with my girlfriend for her birthday and they made it an exceptionally special weekend! The staff was very welcoming and friendly. The hotels bartender was friendly and helpful with picking and trying new drinks. Ask her for a sneaky tiki! She makes all of her ingredients from scratch and makes delicious drinks! The manager even came through and said hello personally. Fantastic hotel with an amazing staff. Will definitely be going there again!

Wow!! My second time at La Flora and they all knew my name when I walked through the doors. Lovely staff and it all starts with the Manager Ros, what a sweet person. Carlos, Luis and John, (whom I met for the first time) very good behind the desk. Then you must spend time at the bar, the bartender Ashley great with drinks. My guys in Barbados would love her to mix their drinks all night. Just before I left the bar was fitted with two TV's and painted with wonderful colours.
I will be back very soon.

Room Tip: Rooms on third floor great.

I celebrated a special birthday recently and decided to make a return trip with my girlfriends to Miami and stay at the Hotel La Flora. We were not disappointed. They had made some upgrades to the hotel which was great. The room they gave us was large with comfy beds and was very clean. The breakfast was great and just what we needed especially after a night on the town in South Beach. The staff were extremely helpful and professional and Ros the General Manager, could not of been more nicer. The location is perfect, one block from the beach and a short walk from Lincoln Road. I would definitely make a return trip to this hotel.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny

We spend one night in the hotel, the location is amazing it's close everything bars, restaurants ,shopping area.
When we arrived they give us 2 welcome cocktails that we use at night time (good start for the night:-) )
The room is little bit small , very clean.The bath was average and not clean at all.
The breakfast was o.k and you have what ever you need to start your day.
If you come with car the parking is 25$ a day.
