Hotel Primero Primera
Ranked #18 of 517 Hotels in Barcelona
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

We have just returned from 2 nights at PrimeroPrimera and could not rate the hotel, the service, the breakfast, the accommodation, the whole package, highly enough! All excellent.
The hotel is family-owned and has only been a hotel for 3 years (previously a family house). The decor is sumptuous and very well thought out. It is a 6 minute walk to Les Torres Metro station and within 10 minutes you can be in Placa Catalunya and Las Ramblas.

They have an "honesty bar" for guests in a lovely lounge and a gym and even a small swimming pool in the garden.
We stayed in one of the attic rooms A5. As we were shown to our room and the staff member opened the door, we both exclaimed "Wow!" It was very well thought out with a very modern feel. The fittings simple but very comfortable with warm wood and glass. There is a minibar but soft drinks are free. There is a "pillow menu" to suit everyone and the bed is very comfortable.
In the evening the bar is warm and comfortable and very relaxing. During the morning breakfast is served there.
Again, Wow! From what I remember...
Cereals, croissant (plain and chocolate), various muffins, tortilla, meats, cheeses (soft and hard), fruits, several different breads, yogurts, coffees, teas, juices and more...

As before, we could not rate this place highly enough. We will certainly return and will recommend it to everyone who wants to listen.

After reading the trip advisor reviews we decided to book a weekend at Primero Primera. Everything was just perfect in every way. Excellent large room, comfortable beds, superb shower and bathroom couldn't be better. The breakfast is great and the staff are very helpful and attentive. Yes it's a little way out of the centre of town, however the metro is a short walk away and a great way to immerse yourself in the Barcelona experience.

Total surprise visit last weekend. It was all and more of an amazing 5 days in Barcelona organised by my husband. Fabulous boutique hotel, didn't disappoint one bit. Every aspect of stay perfect and the staff couldn't have been more helpful or delightful. Out of the main city in residential area with some superb restaurants nearby, an absolute 'find'.

Room Tip: Apparently don't go for 14....not sure why!!??

My wife and I stayed here for a honeymoon, as a result the staff put rose petals on the bed, and free brownies to welcome us, and were amazing throughout the stay. The minibar is free, there is an amazing lounge and honesty bar with great drinks, our standard room was superb and comfortable, breakfast was an amazing all you can eat top quality spread and the pool and outdoor area are well appointed. This is a hotel of class and taste not to be missed with superb staff.

Room Tip: Just a tip, best way from the airport on the metro is the train to Barcelona Sants, Metro back to Di...

What a beautiful, sophisticated hotel! Tucked away off the street, a short metro ride away from Las Ramblas, this hotel is more like a private home or spa. There is a pool in the back courtyard, shared outdoor patios outside of the rooms, and an incredibly peaceful and useful library/lounge where you can get free snacks and even alcoholic drinks on the honor system while you unwind from your day in stuffed leather chairs. The rooms are quiet, decorated in a modern, zen-like style with natural woods and beautiful architecture, unique to each room. The staff is incredibly helpful and gracious, and the breakfast room is like its own restaurant, with a very generous breakfast included. I cant imagine a more pleasurable experience in Barcelona. It's like going to a private home.

From the first time I read all the reviews and even more when I looked at the photos of this hotel on the net, I instantly fell in love with Hotel Primero Primera even until now when I'm thousand of miles away. Believe me, all the good things said about this hotel is true. Some people warned you about the location, trust me you will excuse that over the comfort and high level service delivered. It's located at a high end neighborhood and 10 minutes train ride to Plaza Catalunya. Metro station is only 5 minutes walk hence it is not a hassle at all. Otherwise, just call a cab for it is only around EUR 6 -7 to Paseig da Garcia and the surrounding area. There are couple of good places to eat nearby and the staff will be more than happy to point you around. This is a nice 5 stories art deco building, furnished with a very elegant decor. It's simply elegant, reflecting the high taste of the owner. Room is cozy with also a very chic design, comfortable bed awaits us after a long day discovering the city. By the way, those drinks at the fridge is complimentary. Breakfast is simple, but ample for you to choose from and the most importantly in a good quality. Lounge area is a bliss, there's a library equipped with a big screen Mac and complimentary apples, pastries, cookies, tea, coffee and soft drink all day long. Staffs are another gem, friendly and resourceful in a real way. For me, this is a perfect boutique hotel in all sense. Cannot recommend enough to choose this place for your next trip to Barcelona.

Room Tip: Splurge a bit on a Superior room, you will not regret it.
