Me and my husband booked this place for our mini moon in October 2017. The hotel is FANTASTIC! The location is absolutely great. The staff members were a delight, Although one of the concierge guys just seemed confused all the time but in the cutest way. We got one of the Suites on the 6th floor which overlooked the whole of Barcelona from our balcony which also had a private Jacuzzi. The rooms were cleaned every day to perfection, I literally had no complaints with house keeping. It is such a special hotel. We hired a car for our trip and found it to be much more relaxing not having to wake up at a certain time to catch the hotel shuttle bus to the city center every day. If you can, then hire a car! You won't regret it. The hotel is not Muslim friendly, which meant eating options were very limited and my husband who is a fussy eater, barely ate anything during our holiday. That was a shame. THE SPA IS TO DIE FOR!!! Make sure you try the LO'ccitane Spa which was just divine! I had a full body massage and facial done and honestly the highlight of my trip! Thank you for making our trip so special. Mr & Mrs Bari x

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for our honeymoon for 6 night. Upon arrival we were attended to quickly and with efficiency. If your looking for a quick stop over for 1 or 2 nights then this isn’t for you. It’s outside Barcelona but looks out over the city with amazing views. It’s relaxed and quiet with a very good service from front desk to house keeping. A short 20 mins bus or the hotel courtesy bus of 15 mins takes you direct to the centre and its busy down there so the hotel offers a great escape after a day in the centre. The view from the pool area is amazing, the staff are very very helpful and after reading a number of negative reviews for various reasons i find it unjustified in my opinion. I did notice a floor tile on the veranda broken and the next day it had been repaired, the towels were 5 star and the robes fitted me for once being 6 ft most hotels don’t cater for robes for my size. The breakfast was excellent and offered a full range for all. The park next door added some real fun and wasn’t intrusive with noise so don’t be put off by that. I do fully intend to go back but this time will spend more time round the pool relaxing if the weathers warmer as the layout is well thought out and looks very comfortable. Great for romantic/honeymoons and also for families. The staff were always on hand and the chap ( i’ve Forgotten his name) who drove us the Barcelona on two occasion was very knowledgable and offered great advice. Lovely hotel and charming staff and its easily an undiscovered gem of a hotel, with views that are etched on my memeory forever. Thank you La Florida for making my honeymoon, my wife was overjoyed with the hotel.

We had a phenomenal experience celebrating our anniversary at the Gran Hotel La Florida. From the very first moment, we were impressed with the hotel's attention to detail and warm, welcoming vibe. They'd given us a suite overlooking the mountain side of the hotel with incredible views all down throughout Cerdanyola and out toward Montserrat. The room was beyond charming with unique touches that made it feel like a home and not a hotel, including a staircase to an upstairs bedroom and a lovely sitting room area. The bathtub was heavenly and huge, and we were even welcomed with a plate of local cookies! We swam in the long pool and had a romantic dinner at their lovely restaurant, Barcelonas, where the food was outstanding and the service incredible. Perhaps the best service we've had at a restaurant in Europe! We never quite figured out how to turn off the air conditioning unit but truly this was a perfect stay and I cannot wait to return there again for a future celebration. It was nothing short of magical. Thank you so much, muchisimas gracias!

Can't believe it's a 5 star hotel! The only 5star is the view and the breakfast buffet. We went on our wedding night and the receptionist was pretty rude, the bathroom had mo and I have never had such a McDonald's like ceaser salad for 22€. And we are from Barcelona, so language was not a barrier for the receptionist... Pretty disappointing

Excellent treatment with views of the city. Worth staying for dinner in the restaurant. Lejos de Barcelona pero perfecto para desconectar. The best way to arrive is with your own car, the valet parking is much appreciated. The day before it had rained and the hammocks on the terrace were still wet. They could change the cover before we arrived.

We spent two nights here and, in many ways, thought the hotel was great but we were disappointed with the food. The good things were we had a lovely view of the city and mountains from our room and a private balcony. As keen swimmers, we thought the pool was one of the best hotel pools ever, We appreciated the fact that the staff obtained our favourite newspaper each morning (we believe they had to find it on line and then print it out). The restaurant 1925 was disappointing however. We ate there the first night and thought the food was poor as was the service. The second night we ate at the fine dining restaurant "Barcelonas" and chose the tasting menu. The first courses were lovely but the two main courses (fish and meat) were not. Breakfasts were OK although the first morning we were shown to our table by a young woman on the phone and she did not put the phone down while taking us to the table! The hotel is located quite far from the city centre making taxis expensive. The hotel does run a shuttle into the city three times each day but when we wanted to take the midday shuttle, we were told we could not use this as it was fully booked. So we had a mixture of good and not so good experiences.

We have just returned from our honeymoon after getting married on the terraces of Gran Hotel La Florida and we can find the words to describe how wonderful our entire wedding was from the moment we came in for a tasting last December, through the wedding planning itself, and then the final planning the week of, and then of course THE BIG DAY! My wife, originally being from Barcelona, & I live in Miami, so we had a great mix of a local crowd from BCN & then 50 guest who flew in from all of the States. When we told our local friends and family that the venue was La Florida they beamed in excitement as they all knew of how fabulous of a hotel it is & so excited that we were going to be celebrating there. When our guests from the States arrived at the hotel, they were beyond amazed at the views, the interiors, the rooms, and then as they visit progressed they became incredibly impressed with the staff and service. We have been told by many friends and family that we had the "best wedding ever" (perhaps that's what everyone says to the bride & groom!) and we know that having our celebration at such a fabulous venue with such 5 star service certainly is a major reason why everyone had such a fun time celebrating such a memorable day with us :)

The location of this hotel makes it extraordinary. There are amazing views of Barcelona both during the day and at night. If you choose to leave the beautiful pool or the comfy and classy room to venture into the city it is about 20 minutes by car. The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle at various times during the day which drops you off at the city center and returns to pick you up. You couldn't ask for a more helpful or pleasant staff! I would highly recommend this hotel!

We stayed here for 5 days and in that time had our wedding. We can't say enough good things about this hotel. The location is just stunning and the hotel is beautiful. The staff are outstanding- every one our guests commented how good they all were. Our wedding was flawless thanks to Sara the events manager and all of her very helpful colleagues. We would recommend to anyone!

Hotel is a 20 minute ride high above the city. It is not within walking distance. Breaking views from the Restaurant and multi level patio area and most rooms. The super super long pool is unlike no other. Chest level throughout, L shape with the one end overlooking the city. If you are a swimmer or just want to walk to extraordinary length it is a must. Breakfast and supper eaten in the restaurant overlooking the city. Both wonderful.
