Gran Hotel La Florida
If exclusivity were to be given a name, this would be it. Set in a fairy tale setting on a hilltop, Mount Tibidabo, this luxury boutique hotel offers breathtaking views over Barcelona, the Mediterranean and the snow-capped Pyrenees. Since the beginning the Gran Hotel La Florida has been considered the finest hotel in Barcelona. It has been the hotel of choice of Spanish aristocracy, movie stars and monarchy who came to enjoy the fresh air on the hilltop. During the World War II, it was used as a hospital. After years of renovation, the hotel was opened once again to guests in 2003. A team of prolific artists and designers got together to come up with a design that is at once romantic, exquisite and lavish. The art on display throughout the hotel is enough to arouse the envy of many a high-profile gallery.
The hotel also boasts many designer suites. Each guest at the hotel is made to feel like a VIP, starting at the reception where on arrival they are offered a glass of rose-petal water. Soothing sand colored rooms at once make the guest feel relaxed and comfortable. The marble bathrooms are spacious with separate tub and shower. One can get a stunning view from most of the rooms. The location of the hotel ensures highest level of privacy. Guests can treat themselves to a fine range of dining experience at the world class restaurant L'Orangerie. For those who want to de-stress and rejuvenate their senses, there is the excellent hotel spa. The hotel's jewel is the indoor and outdoor infinity pool. The magical views, lush gardens and superior service give one the feel of having been transported to heaven.
