Hotel Flor de América

The first reference to the Flor de America Hotel places it at Ayllón No. 9, on the corner of Contreras Street.

It is possible that the facility was still operating as a hotel at the beginning of the twentieth century, however, its location near the docks gave it a bad reputation, hence its omission by the directories of the time. The number of boardinghouses and hotels in the area grew, and many became hostels, cheap guest houses, and, at times, brothels. Only the load-bearing walls are still standing and they too will soon be torn down. The construction of a viaduct and the improvement of roads leading to Contreras Street may be the end of this building.
