The best view of Barcelona from the city facing rooms. Beautiful spacious bathroom, good service but if you eat here expect to pay a lot for food. Valet parking, spa etc is very nice also. To wake up with that view makes this hotel.

It is located in an absolutely amazing location! 5 out of 5! You can't beat the view! ( we had a city/sea view from our room). It's obviously a bit distant from the city centre but we hired a car and that solved the problem (please note there is very little parking spaces in front of the hotel so this was a bit problematic..).

We popped into the hotel to admire the view after friends had stayed with you . We decided to have a drink in the terrace bar. Service was very slow, even although the bar wasn't very busy, we ordered a beer & a white wine spritzer with soda. What came was white wine with tonic. I took one taste then went to the bar. 3 staff were around the bar and ignored me standing there, my husband managed to attract our waitress as she went past.

This is the 2nd time we stayed in the Grand Hotel La Florida and the second time was even better than the first. We would like to express our thanks to all the staff who make the stay that much better. Laura in particular was outstanding and made us feel like we were in a home away from. It's off the beaten track and may not be for everyone but if you want high quality and breathless views this is the place. Highly recommended... Mr and Mrs Miller

Really beautiful hotel, definitely busy though as i guess lots of people come up for the views! Very modern, stunning rooms with gorgeous views over Barcelona. You are out of town, up a fairly long windy road, but I preferred this as Barcelona is so busy and touristy in the centre. Lovely church a 5 min walk away which is worth seeing. A bit strange as the hotel is situated next to an amusement park so you hear the rollorcoaster screams from the restaurant and by the pool! You get used to it tho... Read more

There are many pro's and con's to this hotel, but on the whole it is a unique offering within Barcelona. First and foremost, the staff throughout and very helpful - 5 stars for the staff. A hotel with a view like this over Barcelona is going to mean 2 things - 1 it attracts people not from the hotel to come up to the communal arreas, and 2, it inevitably is quite a drive into Barcelona (about 20 minutes and 25 euros). Having said that, it is a lovely hotel with great amenities and staff. So if... Read more

The rooms provide an amazing view of Barcelona and the sea. it's situated just outside the city center in quiet place over a hill, which translates to a 20euros fare to go to center with a taxi. Great place to relax after a day of sightseeing in exciting. Rooms are modern as well as the spa. Good breakfast buffet.

Stayed 3 nights in this outstanding hotel. Location - far from city center. But the view from the hill, fresh air, breeze and silence forces to choose it. The most romantic place. Room service perfect. Rooms were clean and prepared for the night. Breakfast fantastic. Shuttle service drivers were real professionals. Swimming pool (indoor and outdoor) was great. Would choose it again. Worth it.

This is the second time i've been to this hotel, so I wouldn't have returned if I didn't really like the hotel's rooms and view. What I will say however is that the service is poor and is not 5-star service. When we arrived for example they told us they overbooked and would have to relocate us to another hotel on the final day - which was fine but only to find out the room at their sister hotel did not match what we had paid extra for (ie a terraced room). The service at the hotel in terms of co... Read more

I've used this place for business on and off for the past 10 years during the working week and thought it would be nice to take the wife for a relaxing luxurious weekend. Everything is up there with the best but there was a shortage of staff. Took ages to get service, rooms were not cleaned till very late afternoon. Terrace bar and food service was extremely slow. A bit more attention to your customers needs and you would have a very compelling proposition. Otherwise thanks for a great weekend.

We came to the restaurant at Florida for dinner. They had a barbecue night on so we had high hopes. There was 1 waiter for around 15 tables. Terrible service. The BBQ was not great at all. All the food was cold and very plain. Not impressed at all for £45 per person for some meat and dry boring vegetables...absolute disaster. The choice of salad was carrots, a quarter iceberg lettuce or tomato.

La Florida has great views over Barcelona, however for those looking for a 5*GL it doesn't meet expectations at all, due to slow ( though friendly ) service at the pool restaurant and lobby, but above all, furniture and accomodation is worn out and tired. Main problem is that the hotel is situated right next to an attraction parc with, that was our case, lots of noice if the wind blows in the wrong direction. The accomodation, rooms and common rooms is worth a good 4* hotel but doesn't deserve ,... Read more

The staff are fab and the view is amazing. Best sunset view in barcelona hands down. But the hotel needs a complete refurb. The interior design seemed to me to be a confusing mish mash of 10 styles from the 80s and I didn't find it pleasant to look anywhere inside. The junior suite room was enormous but felt like an unloved spare room. And there wasn't there a door on the bathroom. It's a 30 minute drive from the port, so you really want to be away from the city centre to stay there.

This hotel sits up on the mountains of Barcelona which gives you a spectacular view of the city. The breakfast buffé was really nice with complementary sparkling wine. Nice selection of salami and other meats. The hotel is about 3 minutes walk from the theme park Tibidabo. Great for kids but avoid Thursdays and Fridays as it gets really crowded. The pool was really nice as it is both an outside and inside pool. So you can escape the sun if it gets too hot. There is also a big jacuzzi pool ... Read more

This luxury hotel in Tibidabo was a great place to start a week in Barcelona. We stayed there for 2 of 7 nights. I was surprised when I booked that it was not higher on the rankings of TripAdvisor.

We stayed with a large group of people in this hotel to attend an exhibition in Barcelona. The hotel location, as well as the accomadation is fantastic, the service is superb. It surpassed all expectations. I would greatly recommend this hotel to anyone, even if you are visiting for business purposes. A special thanks to Sara, Carla, from the front desk for their patience and great help. I will come back. Thomas

We stayed here for 2 nights, just a quick city break, and it was lovely. The room was huge, bed super comfy and the views over the city were beautiful. I'm not sure it's really a 5 star hotel but it is a very nice one. Good place to stay, costs about 20-25 Euros in a taxi from the city centre. The staff are really very nice here and overall we loved our stay here and would return.

23rd of September my & my husband got married in Barcelona. And we had our reception and dinner with party at the Gran hotel La Florida. I was in touch with Sara (the wedding manager) from the start, and she was a dream to be in contact with. She did everything we wanted, and then some. We had the dinner in the Cafe 1925 with the most crazy rain, thunder and lightening outside after we arrived. Almost felt like the Beauty and the beast movie theme. Even with this unexpected challenge everything ... Read more

The hotel is situated very exclusively on Tibidabo. Our Junior Suite, that we were allowed to check into early, was very spacious and had great views of the city. Most of the interior was stylish and modern. The bathroom impressed me at first sight with its marble design, however the lacking bathroom door really bothered me later on. The outdoor pool despite being heated seemed a bit cool during our stay in winter, but the indoor pool was ideal for swimming a few laps. Unfortunately, the spa fac... Read more

Rooms are great, even a bit too big. Super powerful rain shower. Great staff. Best was the cooks efforts to create special vegan dishes for me. Not only tasty and ethical but a great way to open the conversation on animal mis treatment. Even in SPAIN. Just a slight downside. The plumbing fixtures needs a bit of TLC.

Relaxed atmosphere, top service, reasonable prices. Unbeatable views of the city. Summer sunset hours are good time to use the stainless steel indoor/outdoor pool, followed by a light dinner. Only handicap is distance to city center is not under 20minutes.

Ok this hotel sells itself as Provence in Barcelona. Why not go to Provence then ??? Because this hotel is amazing with breath taking views over an amazing city. Just book, you will be delighted!!!!! It's such a cliche but even the air is different at this hotel. When you arrive you will be thinking why am I staying at the top of a mountain but just do it.

A luxury hotel with breathtaking views over the highest point in Barcelona. The staff are friendly and courteous who go out of their way to serve, I'd like to mention Daniel, Katrina and Fransec all at the front desk who were brilliant. Will definitely stay again.

So before I start, I've stayed at this hotel more than 6 times in the last 12 years. The following is an honest and somewhat disappointing appraisal of what was once an outstanding hotel. My last stay was in 2014 and I was looking forward to taking my daughters back to my favourite european city. It felt more Fawlty Towers that a modern 5* hotel. As a multi time visitor to this hotel I've had first hand experience of the changes over the years. I have to say that this visit did not impress m... Read more

Great views from the rooms. Lying in bed your view gazes accross Barca to the Med. The Restaurant Barcelona has incredible service! Not so in the Restaurant Cafe 1925. The interior design is not what you expect. The waiter would bring all courses simoutaneously, and luke warm instead hot. No clue of wines what so ever but felt competent to pick one... On weekends there are car races up the mountain til early morning..pretty loud...cab for 5 from downtown no problem...not so from the Hotel. Even ... Read more

Just back from Barcelona, staying in the Gran Hotel La Florida. I stayed there from Saturday 5th to the 8th November with my 3year old daughter. Let me start with the positives: The hotel is lovely and all the staff were wonderful and treated my 3 year old daughter like a princess. The views from the hotel are spectacular. The pool area and the Caf√© 1925 is fantastic. The Shuttle service and the driver are first class and the same applies to the reception staff. All sounds fantastic‚?¶right... Read more

Pleasant staff and luxurious hotel, on the surface only. The room's and amenities' cleanliness are dubious to say the least. The room had a sizable spider web that looked like it had been there a while (see attached picture). In addition, one of the windows had condensation so bad in between the double glazing that you couldn't see through. The shower smelled of mold and had a displaced tile, the sink was blocked, a skirting board had fallen off by the bath. In the function rooms, there was a ... Read more

super nice location and views over the city, parking however was not good as we where only there for dinner. The dinner location itself for the group was to narrow and to noisy, food was ok, dessert was the best. Wine was verdejo menade ū??? and the red i did not test. If you organize a group dinner here , check location before and don't take the one next to the pool.

Been here for business for two nights. Marvellous location and property. Spacious room, unforgettable view over the city and the pool. Staff extremely efficient and friendly. The largest shower cabin I have seen, with all the comfort. Amenities by l'Occitane en Provence. Truly splendid!

Lovely setting, looking down over Barcelona. The staff were all very friendly and efficient.I stayed here with a friend , we were extremely comfortable in our room, slept like tops!! Although my friend had booked this trip many months ago for my birthday surprise......a twin room, with sea views. In reality we got a double room with a view of the sea if you stood outside on the balcony and looked round to the right, A different room was not on offer when we rang through to reception, the best th...

Beautiful hotel up on the hills above Barcelona. Upper floor rooms that look out at the city below are spectacular! Great restaurants, rooms and amenities. Long cab ride into the heart of the city or the boardwalk but worth the cost.

Great views, great building, great service... Excellent stay! It was my first time in the hotel and I would definetly go back! I booked a room with views over Barcelona and it was amazing! Also, I got breakfast at 7.00 (I had to wake up early) and I was surprised with the views from the restaurant... I saw the best sunrise ever!!
