My friend and I stayed in Primera for a week in July. We were allocated room 417, and were met by the stench of damp as soon as we entered. Once we opened the window, to our horror, we saw the corridor! There were a few plants there, probably to make the view more bearable. Going further in, the bathroom... More

I am more than shocked by the hotel. Let's start with the fact the check in is at 2:00pm. Really?! It's the first time I am seeing such a thing ! We arrived at 9 and had to wait until 2 in the hot sun... Speechless. To continue with the fact in the room there is solely one socket.. The... More

We Got stuck in an internal room. Although we paid for an external room, I couldn't prove it on the day as Internet was down.. It Was very Loud. Not great, the staff were rude. Internet was down for 4 out of the 7 days I paid for. Not happy with this hotel for the price we paid

This Hotel is situated close to many bars that do not close until 3am, the Primera Hotel as no double glazing and the noise from the bars and very busy road is horrendous, Some of the guests left after one night because the noise outside was unbearable, there was a gap between the door and wall leading to the balcony...

3xxx nice and clean enough. Bathroom cud do with a bit of a spruce but it's fine. We have aircon witch is an essential at this time of year. Occasionally there's a lot of notice from it as the tanks need to refill. Brazil is great you will luv him, he can't do enough for you. I've been here 4... More

Just back from my stay at the Primera. I had read so many mixed reviews before going and was prepared for the worst. The hotel is in a wondeful location as you are a minutes walk from all the shops, bars, restaurants and general buzz of Buggiga. I found the hotel to be very basic. I had a single room... More

We stayed here 7 nights, and we regret we chose this hotel. We have got better room then we ordered but anyway it was not pleasant. Twins bed, no possibility to sleep together, uncomfortable pillows, old blankets and dirty sheets. The hotel really need to be refurbished. Everything looks dirty and old. Before we moved to our room we have... More
