What a hotel! Primero Primera ( which roughly translates as ”first first” in Spanish) reminds me of the Quiet American novel by Graeme Green. Everything about this hotel resonates with my husband and I, from its understated decor, inclusion of 1955 features, antiques and modern touches to its location outside of the hectic tourist areas of Barcelona and the refined...

Absolutely everything about this unique hotel oozes charm and hospitality. The staff offer service that is by far the best we have ever experienced. The rooms are spotlessly clean and provide comfortable accommodation with lots of extras you would not get in most hotels including a fridge with free soft drinks daily as well as tea and coffee making facilities....

This is why I joined tripadvisor, to find hotels like this. Staff are friendly and very helpful, they gave us loads of good tips and directions. The room was modern and clean and the breakfast tasty and of a good quality. We had drinks in the hotel bar which were reasonable and served at the right temperature. Hoping to return... More

Witin the first hour of arrival, I had concluded that this was perhaps the best hotel I had ever stayed in. First impressions were excellent. Check-in was efficient and the receptionist provided us with maps and detail of the locality, especially the nearest sights, metro and other attractions of Barcelona. We arrived early, so headed to the bar for refreshments... More

This was my first trip to Barcelona. Due to the great reviews on trip advisor, I decided to stay at Primero primera. It is a very nice hotel with a lovely staff, and great breakfast, but I really felt it was too far from downtown for me. If you are looking for a quiet hotel for a weekend away, this... More

We couldn't have chosen a better hotel for our first stay in Barcelona. Throughout the quality is exceptional and every detail has been thought of to provide convenience and luxury. The staff were constantly friendly and helpful and were able to accommodate us with an early check in and upon leaving we were able to continue using the hotel facilities... More

We are on our 3rd night of a 7 night stay. The hotel is beautiful and a quiet oasis from the craziness of Central Barcelona. My husband and I have had the most wonderful tapas in the hotel bar. We cannot understand why we are almost the only ones here. I suggest you don't overlook what may appear a limited... More

In researching Hotels for our first visit to Barcelona I happily stumbled upon the glowing reports for Primero Primera. .. As we were embarking on a two week cruise that both started and ended in Barcelona I chose Primero Primera for both ends of our visit and am so glad that I did. Chic, contemporary, spotlessly clean and spacious.... My... More

This place is wonderful. The whole ethos of the hotel seems to focus on the guest. It is beautifully stylish, but understated. The breakfast was heaven. The free mini bar and soft drinks were another lovely touch. Finally the staff would do anything for you. They made our stay simply devine. We'd love to come back one day.

We stayed 6 nights in August. There were three of us. Our first time in Barcelona. Pros: • Large room size and bathroom. The third bed was in a separate section which worked fine for a teenager • Room ceiling probably 11-12 feet which adds to the airiness and feeling of ample size • Good breakfast, although not as good...
