Depends on the rate offered. Basic hotel. Doesn't exceed expectations or minimize them. Was much nicer when it first opened years ago. Great location and neighborhood. The "gay" factor shouldn't affect anyone as its hardly noticed. The hotel appeals to many. Rooms are basic and offer the minimum needed. Could use an update as the rooms are starting to appear...

Comfortable hotel in a great location in the centre of everything L'Eixample offers. Many nice restaurants, shops, and bars closeby. Comfortable rooftop terrace with jacuzzi and small pool that's great during the day when the sun shines. Spacious rooms that (for my room, at least - a deluxe on floor 4) could use a little refreshing. A new coat of... More

Our 'Check-In' was very slow [approx. 20 minutes] and at 14.50 we were told that the room wouldn't be ready 'yet'. As we had a reservation for Lunch at a Restaurant nearby for 3pm. we expressed concern - however, we went to our room - to find that it was ready to be occupied.

I have stayed in Barcelona many times, so knew the Axel and its location. Position wise, it's quite good, but a little walk through Example to Las Ramblas. The Axel is all about service. The rooms are nothing special, but the atmosphere makes up for it. Its really geared to non discerning gay travellers, mostly couples.
