It may not be the fanciest place in town, but Hotel Advance wins for value. And it can’t be half bad – photos in the lobby of one of President Obama’s daughters staying here suggest you’re hardly slumming it.
We like the quiet Sant Antoni neighborhood too – it’s an easy walk to bustling Plaça de Catalunya, to the charms of El Raval, and to up-and-coming Poble Sec, while remaining – by Barcelona standards – away from the tourist hordes. Win!
