Gran Hotel La Florida maintains its legendary look at Barcelona since 1924. This magnificent building was the accomplishment of Doctor Andreu’s dream, who wanted to build the best hotel in the best location of Barcelona city, creating an emblematic and stylish building.
As many other buildings and monuments, the hotel suffered the consequences of Spanish civil war and was used as a military hospital during the conflict. It was in 1950 when it became a hotel again, as well as the favourite place of Barcelona's high society, and the summer residence of the wealthiest families in Catalonia.
The hotel was also an international claim, welcoming people like Ernest Hemingway, James Stewart, George Sanders, and Rock Hudson. However, in 1979 La Florida succumbed to the passing of time and closed its doors.
In 2001 it was rescued, thanks to a meticulous renovation that lasted four years trying to recover as far as possible the original decorative and structural elements, as well as combining traditional and modern design.
