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

Me and my girlfriend checked in the hotel at noon. Receptionist was nice and explained us all we need to know to get around Barcelona. We had a room on the first floor facing to the street, which I have to say that in some hours is a bit noisy but is nothing comparing to loud guests that you can... More

July in Barcelona is hot and humid. 30 Celsius, maybe 70-80% And after gladly enduring this weather, because Barcelona is so great and worth it, we were really looking forward to a pleasant hotel stay, a nice shower and a cooler walk to dinner. The lobby was attractive but there wasn't much in the way of air-conditioning a/c, and we... More

Arrived July 15, 2013 in the hot afternoon. Like all European Hotels, the a/c doesn't operate without your room key inserted in the main electric switch. As a seasoned traveler, I've collected a few room keys during by travels and utilize these to maintain the a/c system when I'm not in the room. My wife and daughter dropped off the... More

After arriving from Prague at our originally booked Hotel Cram, we were kicked out because our booked room was taken by other guests and the hotel was now full so they sent us to stay at Advance Hotel instead where they threw in a complimentary breakfast for the inconvenience. We were already feeling hot and annoyed on arrival at Hotel... More

We came from England to this hotel and stayed for 4 nights. The location of the hotel was great as it was close to the centre and had the metro stop close by. The rooms where very clean. The staff were very polite and helpful. The breakfast was good as it had a wide range of choice. I would definitely... More

Location is perfect - near the university, metro stop, grocery store, and movie theater. Also, laundromat a few blocks away which we desperately needed. You can access the entire city from the metro, so we cannot over emphasize how great the location is. Staff was friendly but not overly so. Rooms had plenty of space, but we did have issues... More
