Currently staying at advance hotel. Rooms are TINY, theres no water boiler not alone coffee or tea. At night its freezing and there is no heating. The only solution we were given was an additional blanket.
Location is good, but definetly NOT A 4 STAR HOTEL!!

This is a small boutique style hotel, about 7 minutes walk from Las Ramblas.
The hotel is spotlessly clean. Our standard room had a large double bed, excellent Air Con and a shower room with a powerful shower.
There is a small QUIET lift serving all floors.
There's free wifi and a digital safe in the room.
A kettle in the room would be a good idea.
The hotel reception staff were the most helpful and obliging we've experienced anywhere.
The breakfast room is only small and can be a bit crowded at times.
I would recommend this hotel unreservedly.

Rooms are tidy and clean. Location is a little walk from the Borne district or las Rambas but it's enjoyable exploring the little unique shops on the walk. Staff were friendly and helpful breakfast was good value. enjoyable stay.

Stayed here during the Barcelona festival which was amazing .
Hotel is well positioned and staff gave great recommendations for eating out . Rooms comfortable and breakfast very good.
Don't miss the bar on the corner, its worth the trip on its own

Room Tip: always try and get a room at the back. Only ground floor rooms have a terrace

I traveled this september to Barcelona and stayed at hotel advance. It is a very nice hotel: clean, beautiful, the rooms look good (they come with a balcony), breakfast is nice and the stuff is very kind and helpful. The hotel is fitting more for couples and not for families. The most important thing- its in a great locatoin!
enjoy!! :)
