I planned a birthday surprise weekend for my boyfriend early October – I knew I wanted to go to Barcelona as he loves it there however I wanted the perfect hotel! I based my first research on the ‘top hotels of Barcelona’ from Trip Advisor and once I got the list I researched each one of them individually.
My choice was for Primero Primera which was based on the reviews and to be honest on the pictures – it did not look as the classic touristic hotel but instead seemed cosy, stylish and yes …more Spanish (Barcelona-type-hotel).
Once we got there we had to wait a bit for the room as we arrived a bit earlier but we had the chance to wait in the garden area …which has an amazing garden with a pool – we regretted we did not take our bathing suits with us! At this stage, my boyfriend was really happy with the hotel but definitely when he saw the room he was massively impressed! I asked for a junior suite …WORTH DEFINITELY the money. It’s a spacious room nicely decorated …the bathroom is full of details with lovely Jacuzzi and also we had a spacious balcony.
The weekend we stayed there, the staff made sure we had everything we needed. They provided us with expensive and cheap options of restaurants, things to see, information we required …everything we asked! I secretly told them it was my boyfriend’s birthday that weekend and they provided with several ideas of what they could send to the room for that night – we got brownies and a bottle of wine!
Regarding location, It is NOT in the centre of Barcelona however the closest tube is less than 5 minutes walking and the area around is lovely – plenty of restaurants! You won’t have a problem with the area being noisy as it is in a really nice quiet neighbourhood. However, if you are thinking about partying until the sun comes out …you should probably look for a more centre hotel …more Rambla’s type!
Finally, this was not my first time in Barcelona and whenever I decide to go back to this amazing city, I will definitely book again in this hotel.
