Off the beaten path about 3 miles away from beach in a great neighborhood with local restaurants. My kids loved the place

4 nights stay July 12-16th.

Posted Jul 17, 2017
Had an excellent stay at Hotel Primero Primera from July 12th - 16th. Found the hotel decoration to be in very good taste and exactly how they appear on the photos. Accommodations were also very ample and comfortable. The only slight drawback is the room closets would be due for a touch up. Staff was very attentive and friendly. Had a very complete welcome guide to the hotel and Barcelona upon check in which was a very nice touch. Our original room's air conditioning was not functioning properly and we were upgraded to a great suite. Would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone family concluded looking for a great stay in a charming residential part of the city. About 10 minute metro & cab ride to center of the city thus one is still very close to all the cities main attractions.

Unsurpassed hotel accommodation!

Posted Jul 15, 2017
Pros: Everything!!!!
Cons: No improvements needed-keep doing exactly what you are doing-do not change a thing! Martin deserves greatest compensation for his service and loyalty
Location: La Sagrada Familia, Tibudipu?, Quell Park, All restaurants Martin recommends, Ramble, FC Barcelona museum
This property and staff was the highlight of our Spain vacation, due largely to the service of the employee, Martin, that provided unsurpassed service with every little detail we requested! Every dining recommendation/reservation was outstanding!! We will always make Primero Primera a destination when coming to Spain!

Lovely elegant hotel

Posted Jul 2, 2017
Pros: The modern minimalist decor in the room
Cons: The hotel is to my taste and for some maybe a little dark in certain areas
Location: Very convenient if you prefer to be away from the city center. Sarria is only a short walk and has plenty of of lovely corners to eat and drink
Came to Barcelona for a sad occasion, having a tranquil clean environment to come back to was just what I needed and it meant a lot.

Outstanding find!

Posted May 31, 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!!

5 Stars for This Lovely Hotel

Posted May 16, 2017 on Hotels
A lovely long weekend made better by the lovely helpful staff at Primero Primera. The food was great and well priced, the bed was the most comfortable I've slept in for ages even beating my own at home. It was a 10 min tube ride from the city centre with a 5 min walk to the station, so you're removed enough from the hustle of the city but close enough that's it's easily accessed.

Lovely hotel in quiet residential area

Posted May 16, 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 May 3, 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.
