Outstanding find!

Posted 31-May-2017
We loved Primero Primera! One of the highlights of our trip! The desk staff were so helpful, spoke fluent English, and repeatedly called for dinner reservations for us as well as calling to confirm our rental car reservation. The decor was unique and gorgeous. Fantastic breakfast. Beautiful, quiet lounge area with free snacks every day and an "honesty bar" where you help yourself to liquor and charge it to on your room. Located in a great, quiet residential neighborhood that is much more relaxing than the bustle and pick-pocket-prone Ramblas but two blocks away from the L6/S55 line of the subway, so for 2.15 Euros you could easily get to Placa Catalunya in about 15 minutes. In walking distance of several nice restaurants. Pool is somewhat small but pool area is very nice. Atmosphere of the hotel fits the music they have on most of the time - quiet jazz - best for couples without children, single travelers, or a family w maybe one or two well-behaved/quiet kids. Would most certainly stay here again!!

Lovely hotel in quiet residential area

Posted 16-May-2017
Pros: balcony in the tree tops, pool area garden, outside bar area.
The hotel has large comfortable rooms - mine had a fantastic balcony in the tree tops that was great for sipping wine and eating snacks in the afternoon. The staff is very helpful. The neighborhood is beautiful and very quiet on the weekend - a little hard to find a shop to get anything, but we did find essentials (the wine and snacks). The hotel is a three minute walk to a metro station, so it's easy to get around Barcelona.

Suburban Tranquility

Posted 03-May-2017
Pros: everything else.
Cons: a simple spirit-measure in the top of a bottle? priced accordingly.
Location: good restaurants / cafes ' shops about 2 blocks away - an easy walk
Away from the Big City by an easy 4-stop Metro journey, and right then right up a leafy residential road, you find the Hotel Primero Primera blended into the other apartment blocks. Outside doesn't need to be much so nothing's wasted. Inside first greets you as functional opulence and a very helpful reception staff. The small hallway leads to the help-yourself tea/coffee/biscuits/fruit bar, and past that the lounge with comfortable "Chesterfield" designed armchairs and sofas. The lounge holds the biggest travesty: Yes, it's a trust bar, and they trust us so much that a "portion" of Cardhu whisky is priced at £15. You could go down to the 'little-shop-on-the-corner' and buy the bottle for 20 quid ! I was really disappointed by this as i'd looked forward to sitting in comfort with a wee dram. It's not even possible to pour a sensible measure and pay a sensible price, I asked the receptionist how much should I pour for £15 and she shrugged smilingly - I guess they've been asked this before? Thinking of that has depressed me again - shame - but now I'm bored.

This hotel is a gem.

Posted 18-Apr-2017
What a wonderful hotel. Small really is beautiful. Set in a quiet, safe residential area, you get the benefit of relative peace and tranquillity, yet can reach the centre of Barcelona within 15 minutes of setting foot outside the hotel. The staff are friendly and approachable, rooms spacious, clean and well equipped, and breakfast plentiful. My only concern was the standard and limited choice of evening meal which was disappointing. But when you've got the choice and variety of food/restaurants that Barcelona has to offer, it's not a problem. The hotel has a delightful ambience and I would put at the top of your list if you're heading to Barcelona any time soon.

Gorgeous hotel!!!

Posted 15-Apr-2017
We loved this hotel. It's definitely not very close to the city center but it's a short 10-15 minute cab ride to everything. The hotel room was lovely, comfortable and very relaxing. There are great amenities and the hotel staff was extremely helpful! The food at their restaurant is great too. Would highly recommend this hotel!!!

Stylish and very quiet.

Posted 14-Apr-2017
Wonderful hotel in a quiet and elegant neighbourhood in Barcelona. Very well organised and polite staff. Large rooms very nicely decorated. Complimentary refreshments, coffee and nibbles throughout the day. Perfect if one has stayed in the centre of the city before and desires a different approach to their visit.

EXCELLENT HOTEL

Posted 31-Mar-2017
Everything in this hotel was perfect and totally exceeded our expectations. The rooms are spacious and kept immaculately clean. Loved the low lighting and therapeutic smell of scented candles throughout the hotel. The decor is wonderful with helpful staff and amenities. Hotel in a quiet residential area. Close to a metro station with easy access to the centre of Barcelona. Local restaurants provide good value for food with a Michelin rated restaurant nearby.

Nice, quiet hotel in neighborhood

Posted 14-Mar-2017
Pros: Very clean, with very nice linens. Enjoyed Library for evening relaxing.
Great hotel that is a hidden gem in a neighborhood close to metro, restaurants and shopping. Facility and staff were very helpful with all requests. The property is not air conditioned, so be prepared to have windows open. Food in bar for evening is great. Would stay here again. Cab drivers are not real familiar with this hotel name, so be sure to have specific address handy.
