A sea facing room gave fantastic views down over Barcelona. The Staff where all helpful and very friendly. The Spa treatments we had where amazing thank you.If you looking to pamper yourself in a quiet location with great views this is the place. My only negative point would be how expensive the food and drinks are, compared to the prices... More

Just got back from a fabulous long mid-winter weekend here. The weather was cold but the sun was out and we made the most of it using the loungers on the terrace of our room - what a view! The hotel itself I'd describe as slightly faded glamour, and some amenties like the main restaurant were closed (presumably because we... More

Amazing location (obviously the main attraction), great views and beautiful hotel, but average pool/spa facilities, shuttle bus was never available and overpriced for basic food and drinks - as in things like soft drinks, sandwiches, etc. I expect to pay more for an evening meal or alcoholic drinks, but with no proper shops or restaurants nearby, I think it's very...

This luxury mountain top hotel has breathtaking views of Barcelona City, especially at night with all the wonderful lights. The restaurant is situated so that you can enjoy the views from inside or out. There is also a stunning swimming pool and spa area, with a magnificent lap pool. L'occitane spa is also located on site. The taxi cost from... More

The hotel's location is fantastic, very quite, relaxing and wonderful city views. however, the service we received was not up to standard and could be improved to maintain the reputation of your business. There was no kettle nor coffee/ tea tray in the room as you would expect to see in any five star hotel! we informed the reception that... More

This is a must for anyone who is into luxury travel, panoramic vistas and utmost comfort, away from the maddening crowds. La Florida is a former monastery a later a Civil War hospital turned into a modern, five start hotel having preserved the historic outer character. It is high above Barcelona and the sweeping views from most room - some... More

I thought it was a very romantic hotel and the mountain top location made for spectacular views. I thought the staff was excellent. No complains. Since, we had our high school daughter with us in a suite so a downtown location might have been better for this particular trip.

About my fourth time here, situated high on a cliff overlooking Barcelona. Once, back in 2007, I got one of the top rooms with its own tower. Not this time, but this is a lovely old 'Gran Hotel' with black & white photos of the construction and the extraordinary amusement park alongside. Food good. Wifi worked. Can open the windows...

We came here as a romantic date. We had a car so the distance from the city was not a problem, it was on the contrary and advantage. The view coming up was stunning, the view from the room was equally impressive and gives this hotel a big plus. The service at the check in, during all of our room... More
