“Great Boutique Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

No wonder it was tripadvisor choice of the year for Barcelona. Situated in well connected but peaceful neighbourhood away from typical tourist crowd. They also gave us an upgrade on arrival which was pleasant and welcome as we were travelling with kid. They made all efforts to provide information about the area and to satisfy all the demands that we had as first timers to Barcelona. 5 stars for the staff of the hotel who added to the luxurious setting of the place itself. Highly recommend this place for stay if your budget allows :)

Excellent choice if you're planning a trip to Barcelona. Nice rooms, decor, ambience and staff. Short metro journey to the center of town. It has the feel of a 5 star hotel. Highly recommended for anyone, whether on business or pleasure.

A new and very comfortable hotel. It is located a bit out of the center but was easy to find by car and we used the metro to get into the centre - the station is 3 minutes away from the hotel and very easy to use. The hotel is comfortable and the staff friendly. We booked a superior room which is on the top floor in loft style rooms with a terrace area shared by a few rooms. The breakfast if good and the lounge/honesty bar a nice touch. The room itself was large, well decorated with a good big bed and all the amenities you could ask for. There are several good restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk and the area is safe and affluent.

A good option to avoid the very touristy centre but still be accessible and comfortable.

This is a small hotel in the Northern suburbs of Barcelona, a short walk from Les Tres Torres metro stop which is 10 mins from Plaça Catalunya. The hotel takes advantage of being away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre to create an oasis of tranquillity. Everything in this hotel seems so relaxing, peaceful and calm in contrast to the noise and stress of the city centre.
The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. On arrival we were given a personal tour of the hotel including the very comfortable lounge. The lady serving breakfast was delightful and told us not only how to enjoy the local specialities but also how to prepare them too.
I'd thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Barcelona who also wants some moments of peace and tranquillity.

Stayed in an attic room in the Primero Primera hotel in April 2013. The room was well-designed and well-furnished. The staff were friendly, and the free snacks and beverages in the common area and the room mini bar were a nice touch. This hotel would be great except for the location. The hotel is located in a residential area with few shops and restaurants nearby. There is a subway station two blocks away, but the trains run infrequently, the system is different than the subway system that serves the central part of the city and many of the tourist sites, and the connections to the main subway system seemed to be inconvenient for where we were going. Overall a very nice property, but it seems better suited to those that are using car transportation.

Room Tip: The attic room we stayed in was very nice and interesting with sloped ceilings (but not with obstruc...

I don't know what to say, it's one of the best hotels I've been to, and I've been to many nice ones! the location is a bit away from center but the metro is only few steps away. Just perfect and very comfortable.

We initially booked this with some trepidation about the location. However, it turned out to be a masterstroke. Hotel is located out of tourist central but there are some fantastic suburbs surrounding it to explore such as Sarria and Gracie that you may miss otherwise. It's a 10 minute walk to the metro and a quick train ride to the tourist hub.

Moreover, the hotel is new, beautifully furnished, the staff are amazing and will go out of their way for you, which they did for us many times. All the furnishing and spaces provided by the hotel aim to provide their guests with peaceful luxury. There are several lounge area to relax in and they provide complimentary snacks and drinks throughout he day and a cool drinks in the mini bar.

Breakfast are also another highlight, with a raft of options to start the day!

As it was our honeymoon, they graciously upgraded us and the room was superb, very large, luxurious and a wonderful place to come home to in the evenings.

We loved the hotel so much we extended our 3 night stay in Barcelona to 5 nights!

This is a place you must visit without question. There will be no regrets except when you realize your stay is too short.

My wife and I thank they staff for making this such a memorable time for us and we can't wait to come back again!
