- It’s perched on a hilltop with “stunning panoramic views” (Fodor’s) of Barcelona and the Mediterranean Sea

“A luxurious mountaintop retreat” (Fodor’s), Gran Hotel La Florida combines “unparalleled privacy and tranquillity (The Daily Telegraph) with “superb panoramic views across Barcelona and the Mediterranean beyond” (The Times). This “five-star urban resort” (The Daily Telegraph) sits atop lush Tibidabo Hill and is housed in a “handsome six-story take on a traditional Catalan villa” (Condé Nast Traveler), which dates from 1925. Barcelona’s cosmopolitan city-centre, where striking Modernist architecture and renowned museums rub up against high-end shops, buzzing nightlife and stretches of sandy beach, is a 20-minute drive away, accessible via the hotel’s regular free shuttle service, and other local sightseeing highlights include Tibidabo Amusement Park, a 10-minute walk away, and CosmoCaixa, the city’s science museum, around 15 minutes’ drive from the hotel.
Gran Hotel La Florida’s elegant restored façade opens to interiors with a “modern sophisticated feel” (The Times) including a gilded lobby area featuring “wrought iron and dark wood contrasted with avant-garde sculptures and exotic floral displays” (The Daily Telegraph), plus a bar characterised by a futuristic-feel waterfall. There’s a “world-class” (Frommer’s) restaurant serving innovative Catalan-inspired fare, a casual café where floor-to-ceiling windows overlook Barcelona, and a city-view terrace lounge for light bites, cocktails and live music in the summer. Guests can also work out in the fitness centre, relax in the indoor-outdoor stainless steel pool and take time out in the state-of-the-art spa.
An Art Nouveau influence runs through the 70 guestrooms, which are decorated in “soothing tones of beige, white, and brown, with the original hardwood plank floors, and king-size beds” (Fodor’s). As well as offering city or sea views, rooms include free Wi-Fi, TVs and minibars, plus marble bathrooms with designer toiletries. Higher tariff rooms add wraparound French windows and/or private terraces, whilst high-end individually designed suites add touches such as separate living rooms, outdoor Jacuzzis, hammocks and loft bedrooms. Room service is available 24 hours.
