Fabulous 100

Gran Hotel La Florida

Maintaining its legendary view over Barcelona since 1924, Gran Hotel La Florida meant the realisation of the dream of one man, Doctor Andreu, who wanted to build the best hotel in Barcelona at the best site in the city, constructing an emblematic building, full of style.

In subsequent years, Ernest Hemingway, James Stewart, George Sanders, Rock Hudson, Princess Fabiola and the prince of Belgium stayed at the prestigious hotel. But in 1979, La Florida succumbed to the passing of time and it closed its doors. This boutique hotel of Barcelona was rescued in 2001 thanks to a meticulous renovation that lasted for four years.

Today, at the Gran Hotel La Florida, wrought iron and antique tapestry are combined gracefully with stainless steel and glass. In the same way, the hotel has a wide range of services; such as a restaurant, the Lobby Lounge Bar, the Lobby Lounge Bar, bar Miramar with live relaxing music on the swimming pool terrace, a beauty centre, a spa bath, gymnasium and hairdressing service amongst others.

In this way, this has again made the Gran Hotel La Florida an authentic icon of hostelry of Barcelona and one of the most prestigious hotels in Spain.
