Advance ****

Located in the heart of the city and at just 10 minutes walking to La Fira and at 5 minutes walking to Plaza Catalunya, Las Ramblas and Paseo de Gracia; and at few steps away from the historic and lively neighbourhoods of El Raval, El Barrio Gótico and El Born, the Hotel Advance is surrounded by museums and near the main places of interest to get lost in and to discover Barcelona. The hotel, built in 1888, is the old and well-known “Casa Framis” which became later the home of the Marqueses de Framis, who lived here until 1990. The Hotel Advance blends elegance, modernity, and comfort and it has 36 rooms, some of which have charming terraces, where you will feel the authentic Barcelona.
