Reviewed 29 September 2013 via mobile

Loved our stay here. Our welcome was a little cool but the minute we stepped into the hotel I knew we had made the right choice. The scent from the scented candle and the beautiful flower arrangement oozed class.

Yes a little out of the centre but easily accessible on the underground.

A beautiful room. Fabulous linen and top notch fixtures and fittings. We had a room with a balcony -perfect for drinks and snacks before heading out.
The only thing missing was a bath to soak my tired feet. Saying that the shower was spectacular. A slightly limited breakfast but great quality. Would go back.

We stayed at the Primero Primera for a special occasion and didn't regret the decision one bit! We flew in from India after battling a flood like situation, we we had to literally abandon our waterlogged car and wade through waist deep water! We arrived very tired and stressed from the experience and quiet sad to have started off on a trip to celebrate a special occasion, in such a traumatic way! But it was like we arrived in an oasis! The area is just so clean and lovely, very high end residential area. The hotel itself outstanding! We were welcomed by the smell of peonies in the reception and a lovely complimentary snack bar with croissants and coffee to fuel ourselves.
Totally loved the idea of the complimentary snack bar, filled with all kinds of soft drinks, fruit, water, tea, coffee and croissants...... It felt like home! They also have a Mac desktop and a selection of books in the snack bar area.
The staff was very attentive and helpful to all our requests. They even directed us to a pizza place close by for a late lunch (La Fermata). The area is very nice and peaceful, without the commotion, tourist traffic and dirt of the centre..... Of course of you want to be in the thick of things, this might not be so convenient. We took cabs everywhere, which did prove a little expensive but figured it was just more comfortable and faster...... For eg:-€14 to Parc Guell, €18/19 to villa Olympic, €8 to Plaza Espana and €14 to the Gothic Quarter(Top of Argenteria )
The breakfast was also very nice. It was quiet compact, but not In a way where u felt there was something missing. It was just right,with a little bit of everything...cereal, fruit,beverage, pastries, bread, cheese, juice, Spanish omelet, eggs to order and good staff that would certainly make your day a good start!:)
We had two suites and totally loved them! The best part of the rooms ,I thought were the showers, they were soo good!
The only reason I have rated it very good and not excellent, is because in both our rooms there were these little white bugs we discovered on the carpet. They could be anywhere and in anything and you wouldn't have a clue. It was strange and creepy. When I called the reception they came and vaccumed both rooms immediately! But there were some still left behind, wish I had taken a picture. My Mom was totally freaked out by them. They looked like lint or just some specks in the carpets, only when u look real close do u realize they are living and moving things!
I had told them time and again that we were coming on the trip to celebrate a special occasion, my Dads 60th birthday! We stayed there on his birthday and I wish they done something a little more special for him on that day, would have made it such a memorable experience.......They put a couple of brownies in the room, but in my opinion that didn't quiet cut it.... Most hotels we have stayed in are very thoughtful about occasions, and such a special one not being duly celebrated by a appropriate token from them, a little disappointed:(.....

But however, cannot take away anything else from the hotel. Lovely hotel, helpful staff and and a peaceful stay! Would most definitely recommend :)

You have a choice when in Barcelona: stay in the center of things or perhaps a bit outside the hectic areas. We did both, starting with Primero Primera then heading up the coast before coming back to Barcelona to stay in the ramblas areas. Wife and I both wished we simply stayed with this wonderful gem. The extra travel time is worth it.

Just got back from a wonderful extended weekend in Barcelona and we couldn't be more happy with our choice of hotel. This place is exactly how we like it. Quiet, nice design and a nice ambiance. The breakfast is lovely and they are totally underselling their gym - I'm not even sure they even mention it on the website. Anyhow, me and my husband like to work out daily and found everything we needed in their gym (although adding some more weights and replacing the treadmill wouldn't hurt).

We loved the location and walked down to the city every day. Also appreciated having some local restaurant options nearby.

We enjoyed our room with comfortable bed and a nice balcony. The garden was also a treat.

We'll be back.

Room Tip: We were very happy with our Superior Room with balcony

My husband and I stayed here for three nights at the end of a two week European vacation. The hotel is just lovely-- perfect because it is a city hotel but not huge. A little off the beaten track (not in the heart of the Ramblas or near the water) but that suited us just fine. The staff were terrific and really knew their stuff.... gave us great recommendations for dinner and helpful tips for navigating the sites.

The decor is Barcelona chic. The room was not large, but elegant and comfortable. it was great having breakfast in the hotel, and while the selection was not large it was delicious.

Would definitely return again. It was great

Can't speak highly enough of this place.We came here on our honeymoon and they upgraded us to a much bigger room. They sent us a complimentary cake to our room. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast is delicious and to the point.The rooms are delightful, before this hotel I didn't know a room in a hotel in Europe could have a balcony. Excellent place!! Would definetly go there again

We recently spent 5 days in Barcelona staying at the Primero Primera and were really impressed.

A gorgeous boutique hotel; attractive decor, wonderful facilities, friendly helpful staff, & a peaceful location just a short 10 min metro ride from Catalunya at the top of La Rambla.

We stayed on the top floor - attic rooms a lovely change from your average hotel room.

Definitely recommend!

Room Tip: Recommend requesting an attic room - delightful!!
