Decided to stay for another 3 days in Barcelona after a 1 1/2 week vacation in Sitges with my husband. I wanted to try Axel Barcelona out, since I had a nice experience in Axel Berlin few years back. Decided to book a "Premium Room" since we wanted a bit extra for the remaining days. For a nearly 200 euros... More

My third visit. The hotel describes itself as hetro-friendly - which it is. There is a spa/sauna in the basement which can be smelt in the lobby The staff are efficient rather than friendly; but will help with all requests Buffet breakfast is good and constantly restocked.

Visited the Terrace at Axel twice in the last week for a pre dinner drinks and then for post dinner on another occasion. A great terrace taking most of the top of the building with a Jacuzzi and pool and some great lounging areas to chill. We had a DJ on both occasion and it was super cool to sip... More

Stayed for 9 nights in July with a friend of mine. Check in was quick and friendly and was granted the room we asked for, an outside facing room. The sky bar is excellent day and night, chilled and relaxed during the day and busy and fun by night. Drinks were excellent value considering the measures they provide. The hotel... More

This hotel is a great choice, but you should know that it's like staying in the middle of a gay bar on Fridays and Saturdays. The roof is very busy and popular. This may or may not be your thing. One thing I was disappointed in is that I was on a long Euro trip and needed to do laundry... More

A gay oriented hotel which I have stayed at about 4 times now. Rooms do vary in size and the best ones for space are the outside rooms but they do warn about noise and I don't think views are particularly stunning. Service is usually friendly, particularly the front desk. Axel Sky Bar on the roof is a great place... More

Just had three nights and we were not overwhelmed . The experience the hotel eludes to was just not in evidence . A pink trap . All skirt and no knickers is fine for some scene queens .
