Good price, convenient and clean.

Cons: Staff helpfulness.
Biggest impression, the room and hotel were well maintained and very clean. The day staff was helpful but the night staf were of no help with recommendations of any kind. Our room was number 2. It is a large room with a nice size patio.....no view but lovely to sit and figure out the days plan or have a nice bottle of wine. There is noise from the metro system moving from under the hotel. Walking home late at night everything in the area is closed up and streets empty but in the day it seems safe.

Lovely little well maintained, clean and comfortable hotel in a fantastic location to discover all that Barcelona has to offer. We stayed here two years ago which we enjoyed and had a similarly favourable experience this time around. One of the highlights that time was the reception staff who could not do enough for us - this time not so much but I would stay there again. Wifi connection was pretty weak though.

Good hotel close to city centre

Posted Jun 23, 2014
Pros: Nice room, quiet but conventient location
Cons: Breakfast was expensive so we ate out most days - which was not a problem as there's plenty near by.
Location: Walking distance of La Rambla, the old quarter and lots of attractions. Handy for the aiport bus which drops off at Pla├ža de la Universitat
The hotel was nicely decorated and clean, very handy for la rambla and other attrcation

Would stay there again

Posted May 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
Our experience was outstanding. If it had not been for our initial contact with a lady on the front desk we would have given this hotel all 5's. Everyone (other than her) was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The hotel is within walking distance to most attractions. It is close to all public transportation, including the Aeroport bus which was important to us. The room was spotless and very comfortable. We had our own private deck! We were traveling 30 days and I must say that the mattress at Hotel Advance was the best. I slept like a baby. The room was dark, quiet and so cozy, we didn't want to get up!

Great hotel for convenient sightseeing

Posted Aug 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
Great hotel located a few blocks off Las Ramblas, and convenient to walk to most sightseeing places and restaurants. For the price, it was worth it. Would recommend for travelers who are going to be out and about most of the day and not looking for a large or overly luxurious accommodation.

Awesome location. Clean room, nice patio.

Five of us stayed there for 2 nights and we all were thrilled with our choice of hotel. Very modern, clean and well located. We had a room with a very large terrace. It was wonderful after a day of activities to relax on the terrace with a glass of wine.

The service left much to be desired

Posted Jul 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
My husband and I stayed for three nights at Hotel Advance. We had booked a room "with wifi." Not only was there no wifi in the room, but the lobby's wifi reception was very sporadic. We ended up listening in on other people's Skype conversations as we were typing e-mails. The staff said that the Internet problem had been ongoing for some time... So why not get a new system? The room was OK, but our toiletries were never changed. There was no attention to detail.
