Stayed for a long weekend in early February with my wife and can honestly say we were very impressed with this hotel, we had one of the luxury rooms and found it to be excellent value. The room was cleaned daily with towels replaced and the bed was extremely comfortable, unlike others we found the Wi-Fi worked perfectly, also the... More

Billed as a four star hotel the Advance Hotel doesn't really deliver. They have gone for a dark and seductive decor but in reality it is gloomy and difficult to see. The staff are friendly and the service was ok. If your'e making a booking then be sure to stress that you don't want a front room. The street noise... More

Hotel is nice with helpful staff. The room we had was small but comfortable and clean. The main problem is the traffic noise. If you stay here request a room not over the road if you want to sleep. The WiFi is weak in the room. No tea/coffee facilities in the room. Ok for a short stay but will stay... More

It was our first time in this hotel. We had been in other hotels in the same area. The relationship price/quality was excellent for me. The service was excellent. The room was a triple and was nice and clean. It is close to the center, so you can go by foot to the city downtown.

We spent three nights at the Advance. Received a wonderful welcome from the woman at the front desk, and for the nights we were there she could not do enough for us. She became known as the "The Lobby Angel." Things went south from there. The room was small but tidy and was in the back so no street noise.... More

Located halfway between anything you might want to see in Barcelona it is best to give this hotel a miss and find somewhere else. I was given a room overlooking Sepulveda right across the road from a bus stop. To say this room was noisy is an understatement. I slept with earplugs and a white noise app on my phone... More

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.
