The Gran Hotel La Florida, a boutique hotel on the heights of Barcelona, is located in a former military hospital. This five star establishment is daringly ultra contemporary, plunging visitors into the universe of the greatest names in international design. The 70 modern, elegant and luminous rooms contain creations by the world renowned Philippe Starck and are designed for upscale comfort. The sky terraces here overlook the Mediterranean, casting a veil of romance over this popular Spanish jet set address. From the sofas in the lobby-lounge to the indoor-outdoor 37 meter long swimming pool, the Gran Hotel La Florida is a living example of the gentle Catalonian life style in an atmosphere tinted with eccentricity.


Spain is a country with something to please everybody. Its climate is exceptional and ideal for sunny vacations, its landscapes are diverse and its hospitality and nightlife have become a legend throughout the world. Who has never dreamed of an exciting evening in one of its friendly and festive tapas bars. The place to go then is Barcelona! The capital of Catalonia is paradise for partygoers, even before the city was popularized by the success of the French film, “The Spanish Inn” directed by Cedric Klapisch. The city is rich in culture, leisure activities and various other delights. Lovers of architecture, contemporary art and dance are certain to find the city to their liking. There is so much to see and do in Barcelona that it’s sometimes helpful to step back from it a little in order to appreciate it even more, and preferable from an altitude. And for that, only one address is possible.

One eye on the city, the other on luxury

The Gran Hotel La Florida is located atop the Tibidado Hill overlooking the city, with a magnificent view of Barcelona and the Mediterranean Sea. Opened in 1925, this boutique hotel has a long and rich history behind it, culminating with a renovation and the highest quality of services, well-deserving of its five star rating. In addition to the hotel’s unique setting, the guest, as soon as he enters the lobby of the Gran Hotel La Florida, realizes his rendezvous with luxury has only just begun. A monumental cone shaped sculpture by Ben Jakober, draped in optical fibre lace rises 27 meters above the ground, strongly demonstrating the elegance and the emphasis on design and contemporary art of this magical hotel. This is more than visible in the eight suites designed and created by renowned architects and designers. Guests can choose from Presidential suite or the Sky Terrace with its magnificent view, or the Japanese Suite with a view of the hotel’s spa, where well-being and aesthetics blend together brilliantly. Equally impressive is Tower Suite, a duplex with a Philippe Stark bathroom.

The Gran Hotel is a hotel where guests have no desire whatsoever to leave. The Lobby Lounge is ideal for a relaxing moment at any time of day, and one can also take advantage of having a drink at the Miramar Bar while enjoying the spectacular view, located near the 37-meter indoor-outdoor swimming pool. And for dinner, why not try the excellent quality of the Catalan and Mediterranean cuisine offered by the Orangerie restaurant?

After having been used as a military hospital during the Spanish Civil War, the hotel became a Spanish jet set favorite during the 1950s. Its most well-known guests were Ernest Hemingway, James Stewart and Rock Hudson.
