Thanks to Primero Primera for making my stay extra special!

I had the pleasure to travel to Barcelona and work there for 2 weeks. During my stay I was hosted by the Primero Primera Hotel in Barcelona. Located in one of the finer neighbourhoods of Barcelona Tres Torres, it's a friendly and very quiet area of the town. Just 10 minutes from the city centre, the hotel has a homely feel and outdoor pool - it felt like a home away from home. During my stay the staff was amazing. They arranged breakfast in my room each morning and after a day of hard work what's more relaxing then a in-room massage. Besides the 30 luxury rooms and suites the hotel has a cosy living room, a restaurant and several outdoor areas where you can relax. This boutique hotel is part op Hip Hotels Collection, on of our lifestyle partners.

There are plenty of excellent restaurants in Barcelona. I tried and tested a few on this trip. The amazing Windsor Restaurant has an courtyard terrace and excellent service. Restaurant De Gustibus Italiae is located in a small street in the Tres Torres area. This award winning restaurant serves classic Italian dishes. I have never eaten better Foie Gras Crostini's before.

Every year, close to the end of September, Barcelona is celebrating La Mercè Festival. The festival lasts for around 5 days. The streets are filled with events, parades and big fireworks.

Although the public transport in Barcelona is quite good I recommend renting a scooter. It's the fastest way to move in around and you can literally park it anywhere. If you have the patience to wait in line for about 1 hour to get in do visit the Palo Alto Market on Sundays - you will find many food trucks here serving from sweets to tapas.

I can't wait to be back in Barcelona!
