Lovely hotel
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We had a 2-night stay en route to a lazy week in Sitges and loved this hotel. We stayed in room 1 which had its own outdoor courtyard. The room was clean, beautifully designed and very quiet despite being just adjacent to the dining area. The air con was gloriously cold (I always choose the coldest setting) and I had the best nights' sleep in ages! The hotel was within easy walking distance from the gothic quarter, which we loved, and passeig de Gracia. We didn't book breakfast, but went instead to a cafe just around the corner. I'd have no hesitation in booking again when we come back to Barcelona.

2 Great Stays - We WILL return!
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We travelled to Barcelona In late may 2018 for a 2 night pre-cruise stay, and a single night after the 12 day cruise. We had booked at the Hotel Advance with no prior knowledge of the establishment, other than a bit of online research. What a great choice! After an initial misunderstanding regarding our booking, it was quickly sorted out whilst we freshened up in our room, which was almost exactly as shown on their website - rare these days! Well appointed, and wonderfully clean and airy. A well functioning air-conditioner was a welcome blessing.
We had booked their Terrace Time special offer, which includes breakfast, complementary mini-bar and a 2pm checkout - great value.
Alex and his colleagues went out of their way to assist with maps of the city, walking maps too, and bookings for Park Guell and a Flamenco show and dinner for us to go to when we returned from the cruise. And it turned out to be a great recommendation!
Breakfasts were more than adequate. Eggs, bacon/sausage a selection of cold meats and fresh fruit - including beautiful strawberries - started our days really well.
Management were very helpful by allowing us to leave one of our suitcases in safekeeping at the hotel whilst we were away on the cruise, and were absolute stars in allowing us to extend our stay for a few hours on our last day, so that we didn't have to sit at the airport for hours waiting for our late night flight.
We WILL return on our next trip to Barcelona!

Nice, friendly and clean hotel in city centre.
Reviewed 2 months ago

The reception was very efficient; the personal is extremely friendly; the rooms are intermediate-sized and very clean. Breakfast is OK without more. The location is ideal and with a room at the backside you wouldn't say that you're so close to the city centre.

Another Great Stay
Reviewed 3 months ago

This is our visit to the Advance and we love it.

The staff as so lovely, polite, helpful, courteous. The hotel breakfast is basic but its everything you need to fill you up in readiness for a great day in Barcelona. There is no tea/coffee making facilities in the room but there is a min fridge so I would suggest you buy some drink and pop it in there. Room service is excellent our bed made daily and fresh towels.
