Located in the centre of this delightful city,the Advance provides a convenient base for visiting the many attractions. The hotel was very well appointed and the rooms were clean,comfortable and well maintained.

The clerk at check-in was not helpful. The room was very small but nicely furnished. We were on the fifth floor with a balcony on the street. Actually the balcony was all fenced in allowing only views of the sky. When another guest entered their room at night I thought we were being broken into. Not that they were loud,...

Good location, Hotel Advance was located a short walk from Las Ramblas and metro. We had a road side 3rd floor room with a small balcony, some road noise but it is a city hotel and wasn't a problem. Rooms modern and clean. Didn't have breakfast as so many great places nearby. Hotel staff very helpful and friendly.

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood 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.
