For a 2 star hotel it's not bad. Very basic and needs a bit of a makeover but clean and not a bad location. You'll need to get a bus and metro into the city centre. Tiles in the bathroom were falling apart and the beds are very hard. The hotel also smelt faintly of cigarettes throughout.

Upon arrival, late in the evening, we got a warm greeting. We were shown to our room and our first thought was that it was tiny. It was next to a lift shaft that we could open windows to and the air con in our room wasn't working. But with no questions ask, at our request, we were moved to... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for 5 nights. I was surprised at how nice the hotel was. We arrived quite late at night and the air-con in our room was not working properly, which was a nightmare as it was so hot. But they very kindly moved us early the next morning without any hassle to a lovely room... More

This hotel is really well situated. It was very close to the touristic bus that we used to see the city. My only complaint would be the water temperature in the shower was either scolding hot or freezing cold.

Medium Prisma is a decent standard hotel. Staff are nice and helpful, and breakfast is ok. You can walk to Sant station in maybe 11 minutes,or take the bus for 1 Euro (buy the 10 pass which also works on the subway, for 1 Euro per ride). We regularly walked to the Gothic District and Sagrida Familia, but it's a... More

The room is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, the room rates are low, and the breakfast is sufficient. This place offers and provides all you need with a stay in Barcelona. Location is also good, a 15 minute walk from Barcelona Sants.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 6 nights, and were very pleased. The receptionists are very friendly and helpful! The room was quite small, the bed was very hard and it was noisy in the mornings, but I still found that there was great value for the price. Better than what I expected from a very cheap two star...

Dear Anja A, many thanks for choosing our hotel and for recommending us to Tripadvisor community. It is a great honour for us.

I liked staying at this hotel. It's very clean and people of the staff are really kind. I suggest it to young guys because it is not too expensive and I suggest it also to families because it is very quite, clean and comfortable. I really enjoyed stying here!

Dear Sara-Ambu many thanks for choosing our hotel and for recommending it to young people and families. These groups are indeed already two of the most common categories of our guests. They nonetheless have a problem: they should book really in advance because we have a very few triple rooms in our hotel. So, many thanks for the opportunity to... More
