Gran Hotel La Florida maintains its legendary look at Barcelona since 1924. This magnificent building was the accomplishment of Doctor Andreu’s dream, who wanted to build the best hotel in the best location of Barcelona city, creating an emblematic and stylish building.
As many other buildings and monuments, the hotel suffered the consequences of Spanish civil war and was used as a military hospital during the conflict. It was in 1950 when it became a hotel again, as well as the favourite place of Barcelona's high society, and the summer residence of the wealthiest families in Catalonia.
The hotel was also an international claim, welcoming people like Ernest Hemingway, James Stewart, George Sanders, and Rock Hudson. However, in 1979 La Florida succumbed to the passing of time and closed its doors.
In 2001 it was rescued, thanks to a meticulous renovation that lasted four years trying to recover as far as possible the original decorative and structural elements, as well as combining traditional and modern design.
Set on Tibidabo Hill, the 5-star Gran Hotel La Florida offers spectacular views over Barcelona and the Mediterranean Sea. Guests enjoy free access to the beautiful Spa. A free shuttle service to and from Barcelona city centre runs 3 times a day. Rooms at La Florida feature free Wi-Fi access and 37-inch interactive plasma TVs. The bright bathrooms come with l’Occitane amenities, a bathtub and shower. Some also have a private balcony. Guests can admire the views from the La Florida’s panoramic terraces and gardens. The Spa by L'Occitane includes a 37-metre stainless steel swimming pool, both indoor and outdoor. A hot tub, sauna, pressure showers and a range of fitness equipment are also available. The hotel’s Barcelonas restaurant serves gourmet Catalan, Spanish and Mediterranean dishes. There are also 2 stylish bars. This emblematic and stylish building maintains its legendary look since 1925, which gives it the Speciality Monument status.
