I insisted in vain to speak to the management and decided to refuse to leave the hotel... More

This hotel is extremely clean and modern, extremely well-kept. The only down-side is it was far and not close walking distance to the main city center, but but it's close to Plaza Catalunya, which is the beginning of Las Ramblas, the biggest street in Barcelona.

We stayed here for 5 nights in July, Summer in Europe. The hotel is clean and modern. The rooms aren't huge but when your in Barcelona you won't be spending much time at the hotel as there is so much to see. The hotel offers breakfast every morning with some variety. However if you are not a big fan of... More

A very good hotel close to plaza Catalunya, one of the most important squares as it is the begining of Las Ramblas. Nevertheless the area is quite quiet, very important when one stays there at the fiesta of San Jordy / San Juan, when there are lots of fire crackers in different parts of the city, but not in the...

A good hotel convenient to Barcelona centre, nice contemporary decor and mostly friendly and helpful staff. A problem was resolved with minimal fuss, comfy rooms, not huge but big enough for a 5 night stay. Lots of bars and restaurant and shops all very close.

We stayed at the hotel for 6 wonderful nights during the the summer. The whole experience was amazing, from the great location (two minutes walking from the Ramblas but yet very peaceful), through the beautiful interior design to the very helpful stuff. Highly recommended!!!

Closely located to a metro station it is very convenient to reach every attraction of Barcelona. Catalunya square and Las Ramblas are also within walking distance. The area around the hotel is very quiet so you are not disturbed by loud crowds during the night, as you might be in a hotel at las Ramblas. The room was small but... More

The property is well located close to Placa Catalunya and while the exterior of the hotel is nothing too exciting as soon as you pass though the massive door you are welcomed into a cool and well appointed lobby. The staff are friendly and the rooms are comfortable. The bathroom was well designed while the rest of the room was... More

Stayed at Advance in July and had a terrible experience (see review). Took the time to enumerate concerns with front desk manager upon departure. Zero concern displayed and no consideration given. Once home, disputed charges with credit card company, thereby getting the attention of Advance Hotel management. Instead of any sort of refund, they offered credit for return stay. Planned... More
