Best asset is the roof top bar, open to a all at night - great atmosphere. Captures sun by day . Rooms are modern and functional . Never tried the restaurants. Service- great . Prodominantly gay couples , however a mix of clientel types - a diverse hotel. We had a great nights sleep. Xx

My experience was great. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Rooms are very clean and spacious. Of course, this a 100% LGBT-oriented hotel, so expect to find such an atmosphere. But even if you go with your partner, t is a great place to make friends. Highly recommended .

I was in need of a fundamental hotel experience for one night in Barcelona (a quiet room with a comfortable bed to rest up for an important day ahead). Axel Hotel appeared as a good option for me based on location, price, and star ranking. At the reception desk I was greeted by the lovely Ricardo, who was very professional,... More

We stayed based upon a recommendation from friends, we were not disappointed. The location was ideal for public transpiration use (subway and cabs), as well as quaint cafes, shops, and bars/pubs. Our visit wasn't during the most ideal time of the year, as we just the opportunity to enjoy the upstairs/outdoor bar/lounge. The pool was still open; however the temperatures... More

'Premium room' was basic and small, not worth 280$ in my opinion. Yet comfortable and newly designed. Bed was great but we could hear lots of loud doors slamming at night. I found the atmosphere disappointing, not relaxing enough (neither sexy). Mostly, the spa was unpleasant, rude staff, and it just made us the opposite of calm. Water were quite... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
