This was our first trip to Barcelona and we chose this hotel as it was outside the city centre footprint. The city centre is not walkable from the hotel but is a cab (20 mins @ €20 ish) alternatively the Metro station is a 5 minute walk and the train is 10 mins away from the city @ €2.
The hotel was beautifully decorated and laid out with the amenities anyone would want, the honest bar was easy to use .
We were in a attic room which I recommend. The beds were super comfy , the decor throughout the hotel was top end and the pool area was in keeping with the rest of the hotel, and as previously stated did not open officially until midday, the staff were more than happy to open it early .
Any quality hotel is only as good at its staff, and the staff in Hotel Primero Primera were fabulous . A very special mention is needed for Eva who went beyond the call of duty and was very eager to help and recommend restaurants and attractions in her own personable style.

The last night of my honeymoon was spent here. What a gem of a place slightly outside the hustle & bustle of the center city crowd. In a quiet neighborhood... the 30 room inn touts excellent service, some special rooms (we upgraded to "attic rooms" that have a central outdoor open area), unbelievably comfortable beds (my wife is googling the pillow & sheet manufacturers!), 24/7 coffee, tea, soft drinks & snacks... walk the stairs (amazing staircase)... easy stroll to some quieter resteraunts, but less than 5 minutes to the Metro as well. The outdoor gardens & pool are a nice touch as well. 25 euro taxi ride from the airport took 20 minutes (it's on the airport side of the city). Worth a visit for sure!

Room Tip: ask for upgrade to attic room!

We stayed 5 nights in June, would definitely stay here again. Location in a residential area is a plus - it's quiet and an easy metro ride to the city center. Very good local restaurants (Two Torres, Montesqui), grocery stores, bakeries, etc. Staff was super helpful and friendly. Common areas are a real plus here - the indoor and outdoor sitting areas, 'honor bar'. My wife loved the decor. Breakfast was ample, plenty to choose from.

We searched for a good hotel through Trip Advisor and settled on this hotel because of the great reviews & the descriptions indicating that this is an unusual hotel. We also needed parking.
We were delighted by our choice. We stayed for three nights, were allocated a lovely room on the Attic floor.
The hotel is finished to a very high standard.
Breakfasts were great & served by friendly staff.
Reception staff were very helpful in advising on tourist spots, metro travel and restaurants.
All in all a lovely hotel from which to explore the glorious city of Barcelona.

I was originally concerned by the location being outside the tourist areas but this hotel more than made up for it. Comfort 110%. Very nice rooms, facilities, and just like home you can go to the fridge and grab a snack or drink. After 3 visits to the city this is my go to place.

Room Tip: Take the metro to get around, very convenient and economical.

We picked this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. It is a gem of a hotel in the north central part of Barcelona. Professionally designed the hotel looks like any other apartment building in the neighborhood, but is immediately different once inside the reception. Friendly, helpful and articulate staff at the reception desk and the bar/breakfast area lay the foundation for a memorable stay. We asked for a superior room, think top floor. It is not their largest as there are suites etc, but previous clients suggested it was worth it to ask. We were in A6 and from a comfort point of view, it is one of the best hotel rooms we have ever stayed in. Spacious, well equipped, a giant bathroom, fast internet, large flat screen TV, and best of all a great bed with marvelous pillows. Since it is in the 'attic', the walls slope and the exposed wood beams of the roof add to the charm. It is quiet and the two ACs work very well. The breakfast as others have said, is abundant, and tasty. The breakfast staff are friendly and helpful and the variety of food is large. I could on and on, but look at their website and see for yourself. We went to several nearby restaurants (walking distance) and they were great too. Book this hotel, you will not regret it. We did not take advantage of the honor bar or the garden area. They did arrange for a rental car for a day trip to the Dali Museum and the transaction was quick and easy as the rental agency comes to the hotel and you can drop off the car at the hotel as well. All in all, this is what hotels should be - welcoming, comfortable, a touch of luxury, and affordable.

Room Tip: We were in A6 and even though it does not have a view, it is a great room. The elevator right outsid...
