Dear Traveler, My loved one and I just returned from a wonderful trip to Barcelona, Spain. Our first visit to this beautiful city by the sea. We stayed in a Chateau style hotel that sits high above the city of Barcelona with breathe taking panoramic views. The hotel is surrounded by lush landscaping. This is truly a jewel of a... More

This fantastic Hotel atop Tibidabo and surrounded by lush woodland but its a 20 minute ride to the city so for a long stay I would not recommend it.Historically its worth investigating since movie stars and dignitaries were very fond of it since its construction in the early 1900.Restaurant is closed on Sundays.Its a solid structure with marble and wood...

The hotel is located in a lovely area, as many previous reviewers have mentioned the views are breathtaking. We arrived late at the hotel due to weather issues. The check in was good, and they greeted us with a glass of Cava. The inside of the hotel is sophisticated, and modern. The simple furnishings and lovely wood makes the place... More

The Gran Hotel La Florida is a sturdily structured block of a building sitting squarely atop mount Tibidabo, which provides a forested backdrop to the wonderful city of Barcelona. The building's quiet solidity and symmetry is attractive, and it is set in a minimal acreage of well-kept terracing which offers unbeatable views over the city to the sea. At night,... More

Fortunate to be upgraded to roof top suite with incredible panoramic views of Barcelona on one side and lush mountainous woodland on the other Check in was smooth and efficient, with a glass of Cava. Service by all staff was friendly and attentive without being intrusive in any way - a tough ballance to strike. Breakfast was possibly one of... More

There almost aren't enough words to describe the magnificence of this hotel. I have stayed at hundreds of hotels around the world and very few, if any, have taken my breath away like this one has. This is the only hotel at the very top of the mountain overlooking all of Barcelona. It's a sophisticated, chic and sexy hotel. The... More

I wouldn't recommend this hotel for a long stay, it's old-fashioned and too expensive considering what they offer. While on their pool, you'll be accompanied by the screams of the people of the amusement park they have as their neighbours. Food was good, but too expensive considering the quality. Waiters are all from south-america and barely speak English, it seems... More
