The Hotel Advance is an excellent property that is centrally located in Barcelona. The room was a pleasant surprise as the website photos don't do it justice. All staff were friendly and hospitable - reception happy to provide tourist information and the local know. Breakfast was average. I'm sure that a better 'food warming system' would make it great.

Stayed one night prior to a cruise after a very early start from Manchester. The hotel is modern, centrally located, clean & well presented but on checking in early my wife and I were allocated room 203 on the front of the hotel. I queried whether it would be noisy as it was over-looking a busy street and there was... More

Our travel agent booked us in this room for a day after a cruise. I did not know what to expect. We proceeded directly to the hotel after embarking. I thought I would need to store my luggage since it was only 10:00 am. Our room was available! The desk staff was more than accommodating toward us. She gave us... More

We went here on a girly break and had a triple room, the third bed is just a day bed that they add to the room, which for us was fine as we didn't spend too much time in the room. The room itself was modern and clean with a good size bathroom and a small balcony which looked over... More

These days anything small with trendy common areas is called ¨boutique¨, but this hotel takes small to another level. The tiny rooms would not bother me so much if it wasn´t for the cheap drywall which separates the rooms. We could hear absolutely everything in the rooms next to us and in the hallway.

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
