|Reservation Information For Gran La Florida Hotel|
Gran La Florida Hotel is not your average hotel. Located deep in the hills of Tibidabo and overlooking the whole of Barcelona, it is a destination in itself. Re-opened in 2003, it has maintained the old glamour that it enjoyed amongst the rich and famous in the 1950s, whilst adding modern touches.
On approaching the hotel, along the winding road that leads to the top of Tibidabo, it is an impressive sight. Built in 1925, the old building can be seen for miles around. Its lobby area is classy and understated. A doorman greets you on your arrival and directs you to wherever you need to be. An area to the right of the entrance houses the reception, where queries can be answered. The lobby bar offers large and comfortable couches, around low coffee tables and views of the terrace area.
The hotel offers five star service with bespoke packages for honeymooners, families and couples. Those in search of impressive views will struggle to find a more suitable location.
