“Magic atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

I selected this hotel from the web as I could not find any room free in the other hotels, more centrally located, where I usually stay when travelling to Barcelona. Taxi driver even did not know it (opened since few months) as it is located in a very nice residential area (Tres Torres) free from any touristic or commercial attractions. You do not notice it until you enter the building, then you get positively shocked. Everything is so nice, simple, well decorated, pleasant, courtesy that you really feel at home. And what a beautiful home: large room and bathroom, very well decorated (without a specific style, just a mix of old and new design) with a fantastc sense of beautiful taste; small but pretty welcome area, reading and relaxing room sharing with cocktails bar (with small restaurant serving simple dishes with great decoration) where the atmosphere is magic. Service was fantastic as well, friendly, everybody smiling and enthusiastic to assist you. Parking inside is possible, free wifi connection, free minibar small garden/terrace to sit outside for a drink.
Location is not central, however public transport is 100 mt away and with a 10 minutes taxi ride you can reach the center easily.
The best choice in town, without any doubt. I definitely recommend it to everybody travelling to this fantastic city.

I cannot praise this hotel enough. A great discovery. My wife and I enjoyed our 3 nights here immensely. We liked the attention to detail. The staff were wonderful friendly and helpful. The room was large and bright. Everything felt like home. We will be back to this hotel for sure.

We were lucky to be shown this boutique hotel in Sept11 when we were looking for a hotel where my wife to be could spend her night before our wedding / peaceful and quiet for her to get ready on the wedding morning and as our bridal suite in the evening - being put off by the large chain hotels we were delighted by Prima Primaria's willingness to help -

The hotel was immaculate with fantastic rooms and great bath / shower rooms - the staff were very helpfull all weekend especially on the wedding day making it a home away from home -

A residential location just off Via Augusta an area we know well and one we enjoy strolling into the city from - transport links are good too -

The wedding was the best day / weekend of our lives and this faultless hotel and professional staff contributed greatly to this - highly recommended for that special city break -
Hope you enjoy it as much as we did -

This hotel is honestly one of the best hotels I ever stayed in. We were in Barcelona for a weekend away (a wedding) and we choose to stay in Primero Primera. it recently opened but we didn't notice that at all. So relaxing. The staff are phenominal and very friendly. They speak excellent english and really make you feel at home as this is a boutique hotel. Food (breakfast) was fantastic too and again great service. All drinks and nibbles in the liberay (which looks amazing) are complimentary as are the drinks in the minibar, which we thought was a great, great service. So if you want to stay in an hotel in Barcelona, do stay here. Doesn't matter if you are there with friends, a couple, family or for business. I will allways stay there. Everything is also very close (taxi or public transport).

Greetings Jeroen Proos.

Room Tip: The ones with a balcony are the best
