Primero Primera Hotel & Club

One of Barcelona’s best kept secrets

By Juan Montenegro 06.05.19

Opened originally in 2011 Primero Primera is a pioneering Boutique Hotel in Barcelona, a concept based on the idea of providing visitors the experience of living the city as if they were local Barcelona residents. Located on c/ Doctor Carulla 25-29 within the middle of the Tres Torres neighbourhood this atypical but charming hotel provides an ambience of relaxation and exclusive elegance that exudes warmth and savoir-faire recalling the feel of a private club.

The building was constructed for Carlos Pérez-Sala in 1955, a well known businessman who lived there with his family until 2011 when it was decided to turn its into a hotel. The original structure was maintained and the refurbishment project is highly respectful of the previous use for the building in order to retain its residential character. There are 30 rooms, all different, all with natural light and decorated using a combination of vintage style and contemporary furniture as well as quality materials like wood, leather and luxurious textiles. Spaces that give visitors the feeling of being a guest in someone’s house in one of Barcelona’s premier neighbourhoods.

    The Hotel & Club Primero Primera is the perfect choice for anyone looking for quality and elegance in a quiet environment, off the beaten track offering a different experience of the city. With quiet corners for laying back and taking it easy, such as its library with a wide selection of books about Barcelona, art and literature (in different languages); its Salón Honesto, an intimate space with a fireplace for enjoying a drink or a read; or its fantastic interior courtyard, with apple trees, century-old plants and Mediterranean vegetation that surround the stone pool where you can cool off on hot summer day.

    One of the most beautiful spaces is the dining room, at the heart of the hotel that works as a bar and restaurant not just for guests but the general public as well. Here you can savour an aperitif or enjoy a carefully constructed menu with signature dishes created by renowned chef Sylvia Quintero (who also manages the bistrôt of the famous Santa Eulalia department store on Paseo de Gracia), international market cuisine using fresh and seasonal produce, open for lunch and dinner. The bar also serves breakfasts and snacks with delicious homemade cakes and biscuits, fruit juices and a wide variety of teas and infusions. On Thursday night, oysters and champagne.
