Review Prisma Hotel, Barcelona

Page Content

Prisma Hotel
Prisma Hotel, Barcelona is located on a main road in the heart of the Les Corts district - Avenida Josep Tarradellas. This street runs directly from Plaza Sants - the home of Barcelona's Sants station - the city's largest train station. The area itself has little by way of interest for tourists to the city hoping to be situated close to Barcelona's top tourist attractions. However, Barcelona FC's famous stadium, Camp Nou, is a 20 minute walk from the hotel.

The hotel has a plain and modern exterior. The lobby area has cream marble floors and squidgy black leather sofas in the corner. A small telephone area sits behind the front desk behind a sheet of glass providing privacy. One wall is lined with stylish black and white photos with a weathered sea theme. A narrow marble staircase leads to a second seating area housing cream leather swivel chairs. Behind this, there is a small television room with about 6 seats.

The hotel is likely to appeal to travellers with a specific reason to be in the Les Corts area. Although the area has its own local Spanish charm it has little by way of tourist attractions.
