EXPERT REVIEWS

The Telegraph - The 30-room Primero Primera, in Barcelona’s exclusive Tres Torres neighbourhood, offers guests an intimate glimpse at upscale city living. Each living space features a wealth of warmth and comfort, adorned with unique design touches, timeless furnishings and mementos of a formerly residing Catalan family. read more
iescape - An elegant boutique hotel that feels like home, set in a quiet residential district 10 minutes from the city centre. There are delightful communal areas - a lounge with battered leather sofas, an honesty bar and a fire; a help-yourself coffee area; a restaurant/café serving simple food. Rooms (there are 30) are very spacious as this used to be an apart-hotel, and spread over 4 floors. Imagine crisp white linens on very good beds, deep bathtubs, perhaps a terrace to soak up the tranquility. If you want a peaceful base in a hectic city, you could do no better. read more
Wallpaper - Outside, the 1950s architecture remains, while inside, classic details - including the staircase and the odd original furniture pieces - have been updated with contemporary elements. The result is warm and inviting; in the public spaces, aged timber flooring, worn leather armchairs, heavy wooden furnishings and rich Persian rugs sit against neutral oatmeal and dark grey shades, while the guestrooms – each with a different design – are light and airy, scattered with thoughtful details. read more
Fodors - Daughter Nuria Perez and her designer-architect colleagues did an awesome job on the makeover, keeping essential features like the spiral central stairwell and creating a retro-modern ambience that invites you to sink into one of the leather armchairs and relax. Rooms have twin- or king-size beds and ample wardrobes; bathrooms have black-slate floors, stretch-out tubs, and Gilchirst & Soames toiletries. Ask for No. 42, with a balcony and view of the street, or A-6 on the top floor, with access to the rooftop terrace. read more
