"Small, quiet Hotel"
Nice Hotel, modern,clean and a good location . Near the tube, bus routes, 5 min walk to the top end of Las Ramblas.. good area away from the maddening crowds. We Had Room one, a terrace room on the ground floor. A small outside sitting area,no view but quite peaceful. Breakfast is fine, not a large choice but ok. Some nice cafes nearby. About 7 euros return from the coast if you have had enough walking. Staff nice.
"Lovely Boutique Hotel"
We stayed here twice - at the beginning and end of our trip. Both times we found the rooms to be lovely- perhaps a bit small- but comfortable, clean, and well-appointed. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Our high-school Spanish was not challenged by anyone- their English was excellent. Breakfast was very nice- with one glitch...the only coffee available is from a Keurig-like device. This means you must get up to get your coffee- in our case- numerous times. While that may work for some- there should be an urn of hot coffee available on the buffet or delivered by staff via coffee pots. This is why I cannot give Hotel Advance five starts....coffee and breakfast are important to us! A great place we plan on returning to - with the hopes that coffee will be available without having to use a fancy machine.
The Advance is well located on a fairly quiet street, beautifully designed and decorated with a present and helpful staff but street side rooms are noisy and rooms are barely large enough for two adults with one suitcase each. Buffet breakfast is adequate but not worth the price.
"Good little hotel"
This is a nice little hotel that is very clean, modern and in a good location. Staff were always friendly and very helpful. As mentioned in other reviews the rooms are on the smaller side but this is a city hotel and is expected. It's roughly 30 minutes from El Prat by car and is very well located with the closest train station a few minutes walk away. Rooms were made up everyday to a high standard.
"Fully satisfied "
The staff were top notch helping you in either with the hotel amenities or as a local guide for your tour in barcelona....they're responsive anytime of the day and they give you details on how to travel to each of the tourist destinations. Rooms are clean as well as the washrooms. Was a pleasure staying here for 4 days and I truly enjoyed the stay. Very close to the subway/ metro and also close to the city centre I guess Lot of eating and shipping options and the rooms are sound proof as well at night for a good sleep. All amenities are provided just on a phone call to the reception. Would definitely be back here next year.
