Hotel Advance

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Absolutely loved staying at this place. The room and the front desk was par excellence. Ideal location right in the city centre yet on a peaceful street. Walking distance to Las Ramblas, Gran Via and very near the subway station. I stayed when the Catalonia separation movement was at its peak. On the day of our departure a general strike had been called hence no taxis, buses, trains, subways or any transport was available. I was travelling with my wife and my 7 month old son. Less said the better it was total chaos. I must mention the wonderful staff at this place who tried their level best to get me taxi. I am not sure whether he was the manager but an elderly gentleman from the staff was kind enough to run across multiple blocks to help us out. Unfortunately he failed as a result had to lug 2 suitcases along with the pram for quite a distance. Whatever the outcome I will always remember that gentleman's effort.

We stayed at Hotel Advance for two nights at the beginning of our vacation to Spain. We took the Aerobus from the airport to the Placa Catalunya and it was a short walk (15-20 minutes) to the hotel. We were greeted warmly at the front desk and given helpful information of what to see and do in the city. Our room was spacious, quiet and comfortable. The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood away from the tourist noise but within walking distance of everything we wanted to see and do. Breakfast in the morning offered hot and cold choices and was very filling. Barcelona is a beautiful, clean city filled with so many sights and things to do - and so much good food. Thank you for a lovely stay and hope to return again soon.

We arrived in Barcelona at 1am so needed somewhere that we could check-in in the middle of the night and there was someone always at the desk. Granted, many places have 24 hour concierge but some were difficult for actually checking in. We quite literally walked in the door and were handed our room key. The Queen room was actually 2 large twins which was perfect because I love a king bed so was excited about that! Nice and firm too. The bathroom was large and the room clean and quite large for Barcelona. The location was really good too as it was just on the edge of the main - egg shaped area - we were able to walk everywhere. Overall - clean, modern and good location.

The hotel is located fairly centrally, close to the Plaza de la Universidad, and within walking distance of Plaza de Catalunya and Passeig de Gracia. The room was spacious and comfortable, although the view was not spectacular (it was a back room), but it was very quiet. Staff was nice and friendly. Wifi was good. A good choice for Barcelona, although a little more expensive than other options further away.

The hotel is located near universtat place, 10 minute walk from Catalunia placa. We actually walked to all major attractions and night life places besides Segrada familia, in any case L2 metro is near by and you can use the metro when needed. Nice places to eat lunch coffee shops and supermarkets near the hotel. The rooms are modern , clean and specious. Continental breakfast was good. Overall , good and recommended.

Came across this hotel last minute on booking the pictures don't really do it justice ,clean modern hotel located 5 mins walk from las ramblas worth its 4 star rating breakfast was 15 euro extra not a huge range but something for everyone we had 1st level rooms that had a balcony at the rear super quiet at least at the rear would come back again

a three night stay at this Boutique Hotel. Excellent amenities and polite staff. A shame they don't have tea making facilities in the room but i loved the location. Will definitely want to stay there again

The hotel has a very good location, it is really easy to walk all the best places in Barcelona. Also is very close to the best places to eat. Also has a metro station near the hotel that brings you the opportunity to avoid walk if you feel too tired.

We chose this hotel because of its location, nice rooms and that it was stated as a four star property. Our room was in the second floor. The room was small, but the decor was nice, with a large bathroom. The bed was a 140 cm queen bed with low quality. The walls are thin and the hallways are dark. The view is towards a back alley. The room was clean and tidy. The hotel has no facilities at all, no bar, restaurant, pool, gym etc. The lobby was large and nice but was always empty and worked more like waiting area/decoration. We did not try the breakfast. The hotel will not accommodate any changes in your reservation, so please be aware. Because of the low service level, we feel that the hotel is overpriced.

Hotel was more than Ok, only issue I had room 103 which faced onto the main road. I expected traffic noise but not clanking metal sounds from the bar opposite in the early hours - did not sleep well. Also, no bottled water in the room which I would expect from a 4 star hitel😊
