“Excellent Stay; Excellent Value”
Reviewed 28 February 2013

We stayed at the La Flora on a Thursday night and again on the following Monday, and our experiences both nights were excellent. The location is perfect- a block to Ocean Drive and a very short walk to both Espaniola and Lincoln pedestrian malls. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. It is a great value for the area, especially since they include a drinks in their nice bar area (and outdoor patio) the first night and breakfast every morning. We found their patio to be a nice place to relax and watch the people stroll by. They went out of their way to accommodate us when we arrived from a cruise at 8:30 in the morning. We will definitely be coming back!

The hotel is located two blocks from Ocean Drive and the beach - really good and still very quiet at night!!!
At the reception we received friendly and competent staff!!!
The hotel and especially our room was very clean.The room had everything what you need, a comfortable bed, bath / WC, air conditioning, TV, table, chair, etc. Breakfast is displayed in the foyer, there is coffee, orange juice, bagels with butter, cream cheese and jams, boiled eggs and small cup cakes. We were 10 days there and the staff was very friendly and always helpful!!

We will come back safely...

My partner and I just finished a week stay at La Flora and we were very, very pleased. It is very reasonably priced given other places in the area. You shouldn't compare it to the 4 and 5 star places around, but for what it does, it does it really well. First off, the staff were consistently helpful, friendly and pleasant. Every single person we came in contact with was personable and helpful. The room was clean, large and the beds were comfortable. Heat and A/C worked well, bathroom was a good size, shower/tub a little awkward to get in and out of. One suggestion would be to add a safe in each room.
We appreciated the little extra touches that some other hotels don't offer (free wifi, light breakfast and coffee in the morning, beach towels, a welcome drink at the bar upon check in etc...). These little touches help to make you feel like you are being taken care of. I have stayed at another hotel in the area (one of the art deco places on Ocean Drive) which was more expensive and very much below the level of cleanliness and service as compared with La Flora. Do yourself a favor and stay on Collins instead of Ocean or Washington, as it is a much quieter road. Also the location of 13th street was perfect as it was 2 blocks from the center of ocean drive and a short walk to Lincoln Rd. We will certainly be back.

Room Tip: some rooms are bigger than others. The 2 in the middle of the floor are like suites with a little s...

Stayed here with a colleague for one night in November 2012, prior to a conference at Doral. The room was very, very spacious: bathroom, living area, 2 beds, and windows onto the street and on the side. The hotel is very convenient to everything that South Beach offers - 1 block to the beach, and there is an excellent Italian restaurant, Spiga, just next door.

The room was recently renovated to a nice finish, very comfortable and clean, even though not luxurious. The price of the room seemed to be a little on the high side, but as mentioned, there was plenty of space, and I know that hotels in the area can be very expensive for what you get, so I would think that this hotel provides good value.

I made the reservation by phone, and spoke with Ros, the manager, who made me feel very welcome. Overall, the service at the hotel was excellent! I recommend this hotel!

Hotel was conveniently located, rooms were comfortable and spacious but not luxurious.
But exceedingly quirky:
At check in they insisted on making copies of both of our driver's licenses " so we will know who is in the hotel in case of fire." Insisted on payment of $25 in cash at check-in for valet parking service. Made a big desl of giving us two free drink coupons but when we ordered a beer and a glass of wine were told neither of those were usable as our free drink. Put a coffee maker in the room but no coffee to use in it. Etc.

Quirky, its definition shines through as either a little strange or cool and in this case it’s cool, because if you’re looking for a 5 Star luxurious hotel this is not for you but if you are ready to enjoy an historic Art Deco Boutique hotel providing simple pleasures with a 5 star charm then this is the place to be with outstanding service, centrally located and a cool vibe … We continue to offer our eagerness to correct any problems on our part to make all our guest’s stay comfortable. Thank you for taking the time to share your comments.
