Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a WOW kind of place. Coming from Paris, I was worried that we'd have another exceptionally small room. When we booked, we thought we had booked twin beds, but apparently, we had not. We upgraded, to get twin beds, and ended up with a MAGNIFICENT room. Understand, I like grand hotel rooms. From that standpoint, this was completely a "wow" kind of moment. From a nice, spacious, comfortable balcony, to a wonderfully large room, to a spacious bathroom that was both elegant and functional, Hotel Primero Primera was magnificent. It wasn't in the midst of all the action, so it was a quiet getaway, and that added to it. Even with the upgrade price, the hotel was undoubtedly a bargain. This hotel gets big-time props for service and style. I'd easily love to stay here again.

I must say that this is not a hotel you want to expose your family to. We stayed there from 10/17 to 10/21/2023 and room #15 and it was a nightmary. The room is above the restaurant and the noise stars around 5:30AM and goes until 1 to 2AM, depending on kitchen closures. Terrible & unacceptable. Issue was addressed and Manager/Director took no action.

Fantastic hotel! A short 25 minute taxi ride from the airport. 5 minute walk from the nearest train, which takes you into the city in less than 15 minutes. A beautiful entrance to the hotel with a cosy reception area. Very welcoming and efficient staff on arrival. We stayed in a junior suite with balcony on the 4th floor and it was perfect! Very large room with French doors leading onto balcony. Very comfy bed and soft linen. Bathroom large and a great rain shower. The hotel was extremely clean and peaceful. The housekeepers kept the room lovely and clean every day. Breakfast was delicious with lots of choices. We loved the fact you could watch the Chefs preparing your food. The whole team from breakfast through to dinner and drinks in the evening were very polite, friendly and do a fab job! We used the outside garden on the last day. The sun beds are very comfy, we didn't use the honesty bar, but a great little addition. We are already looking forward to returning to this little hidden gem. Thank you all for a wonderful stay :)

We stayed here for two nights and what a wonderful hotel. A calm oasis to relax in after the heat of the city. The pool was small but perfectly adequate with the garden an extension of the relaxed atmosphere of the hotel. For breakfast there was a great choice including food cooked to order. I can highly recommend the eggs Benedict. The rooms were large and comfortable…we were with friends and had rooms 36, 38 and 46 all recommended. Staff were all very friendly from the reception on arrival through to service at breakfast. All in all a great hotel for a good price and to top it off there is a car park and electric car charging.

What a wonderful oasis away from the city with such friendly professional staff, the Manager should be very pleased with them all. Albert on reception was very helpful, organising our tour to Sagrida and suggestions on visiting the Gothic area. All the staff were very good from housekeeping to restaurant. The pool and garden was a peaceful area to sit and relax and just what you needed after a day sightseeing. Such a lovely place to stay.

Excellent boutique-style small hotel in quiet, safe suburb. Make sure to order taxis for downtown an hour ahead of time particularly on weekend evenings. Large rooms with modern furnishings. Wonderful breakfast kitchen and staff. The hotel is a 15-20 minute taxi ride (10-15 euros) from all of the major sites in BCN. If you do this twice a day, it will still cost you less than an equivalent place downtown.

A really charming boutique hotel in a great location. Unfortunately, breakfast service in particular is very poor. If you are going to stay here I’d recommend you eat out unless you have a particularly high level of patience for bad service, especially if you are used to 5 star service. After the 4th day I was down to just ordering an espresso

What a great little gem this Hotel is. We have never been to Barcelona before and there are plenty of options to stay there. We booked here based upon reviews we had seen. We were not disappointed, the location is super quiet, but close enough to transport for easy access to the city centre. Our Spanish is pretty ordinary, but the staff were so friendly and helpful, the room was so comfortable, the outdoor and indoor bar areas are great as is the menu. We could not recommend Primero Primera more highly and look forward to a return visit.

I loved staying at Primero Primera. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. I got wonderful sleep and appreciated the room darkening blinds. We chose a room with a terrace and immensely enjoyed our morning coffee and evening wine while sitting out on it. The whole staff was so friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent and I enjoyed all the offerings. I especially enjoyed my morning cappuccino and eggs made to order. We also enjoyed the garden/pool area. It was peaceful sitting in the lovely yard. The hotel is situated in a residential area. We found this ideal, as it is a short taxi or train ride to anywhere in the city. I hope to return to Barcelona and stay at Primero Primera again!
