Tucked into a quiet, residential and entirely authentic corner of Barcelona, Primero Primera offers a real slice of authentic Catalan living. Minimalist and effortlessly chic, the hotel is situated in the Tres Torres suburb, just ten minutes from all the attractions of downtown Barcelona.
In a nod to the luxurious, high-class neighbourhood where it is situated, a range of exquisite restaurants surround Primero Primera, offering a range of local and international cuisines. The hotel is also close to Mandri Street in the Sarria district, where you will find a superb range of bars and designer shops. The open green spaces, wide, leafy avenues and eye-catching architecture that characterise this very special metropolis are also nearby.
Look & Feel
Built in 1955 and renovated in 2011, Primero Primera features a modern, sleek and minimalist design that exudes a sense of warmth thanks to the elegant, carefully chosen accents adorning each room. The 1950s influence remains with furnishings in velvet red, chocolate brown and warm beige hues creating a Mad Men style design aesthetic in the public spaces.
Over in the guest rooms, the colour palette shifts towards crisp white, black, blue and gold tones with a masculine, powerful edge. Vintage overtones intertwine with funky contemporary style in the form of antique trunks, sepia photos, oversized silver lanterns and stone Buddhas. Exquisite comfort is provided with white cotton linens, spacious private rooms and deep soaking bathtubs, along with a communal lounge where the stylishly tattered leather sofas take centre stage alongside a roaring fireplace.
“You’ll be situated in one of the most vibrant cities in the world, and in a neighbourhood less travelled by tourists.”
When the owner’s family occupies the first floor of your hotel – the very same family who have lived here since 1955 – you’re definitely in for an intimate experience. Indeed, staying at Primero Primera is like sleeping over in a close friend’s (very lavish) home. You also happen to be situated in one of the most vibrant cities in the world and in a neighbourhood less travelled by tourists. Thanks to this exclusive postcode, staying at Primero Primera offers a very special way to experience this best-loved city, and the opportunity to see it all through the eyes of a local.
Pay a visit to one of the lesser-known Antoni Gaudi buildings, which is just around the corner from the hotel. El Col·legi de les Teresianes is a school building that was completed by Gaudí in 1889. The building was built in brick and iron and designed to offer a feeling of austerity.
