Catalan Retreat - Hotel Primero Primera

For me I choose to always stay in boutique hotels because little touches make all the difference. When you arrive, you will be instantly satisfied with the warm greeting and kindness of the Hotel Primero Primera staff. Bright smiles and the utmost respect, I never once opened my own door or carried my own bags, which (although I would never expect) is one of the highlights for an exhausted traveller. It is small touches of great hospitality that let you know you have made the right choice. The whole atmosphere of this hotel is very relaxing and comfortable, yet luxurious at the same time. This is an amazing boutique hotel and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone going to Barcelona.


Hotel Primero Primera is located in a high-end residential area. From the outside it's rather unassuming and blends in with the surrounding residential buildings. The closest metro station is Les Tres Torres, which is a 5 minute walk away.

The room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. On a whole the rooms are huge, almost all like suites. The biggest and most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in too. The Hotel even has a pillow menu! In fact the bed was so comfortable that it was difficult to force yourself out of it to enjoy a day in Barcelona (but worth it when you did) . Another noteworthy feature is the dark wall-paper and furnishings in the rooms which works very well with the relaxing vibe.

When you return from a long day exploring a complimentary mini bar filled with juices, soft drinks, water and beer awaits you, the perfect way to refresh in the Summer months.

The bathroom was well beyond what you get in European hotels with a separate WC, large rainfall shower and bath tub you could almost swim in. One of my favorite aspects of the bathroom - plenty of space to lay out my makeup!

Spotlessly clean, this hotel was a joy to return to after a long day exploring the city. The pictures do it no justice!

When you walk into the hotel the first thing you smell is the divine peony floral candles that they have burning all the time, I honestly can describe how incredible this scent is, you just have to experience it for yourself.

Another favorite feature of mine is the hotel’s common area with a Mac desktop and rows of books. The hotel has a great supply of guidebooks and free WIFI, and so I made use of this space at night to plan the next day’s itinerary. The complimentary snack bar was also welcome, it made us feel very at home. The breakfasts were marvelous with a good range of hot and cold choices. This whole boutique hotel is like a home from home (if you had an amazing home).

The hotel also features a great pool and terrace areas for those warm Summer months.

However I must say it was the staff that really made the hotel for us. A sincere smile and ‘hola’ in the morning and evening just sets the tone perfectly for this friendly personal boutique hotel.
