Great time at the AXEL hotel !! We were greeted with a warm smile upon our arrival. We arrived early (10 am) so we could not check in, however, they checked in our luggage and we were able to enjoy our day sightseeing Barcelona. We checked in at 2:30 and went into our room. It was a bit warm in...

This was one of the worst experiences I have ever had. First of all, when I got to the hotel I was instructed that the check-in would be at 3pm but in order to guarantee that I can get to the room by that time I would need to start the check in process one hour in advanced (2pm); apparently...

We loved the Axel! Great Spa and Fitness center. The rooftop bar and pool were spectacular! They upgraded our room at no charge. We had a beautiful terrace with stained glass windows. Located right where we wanted to be and close to everything we wanted to do. Very polite and professional staff too!

From the moment we walked in the door we were greeted by a very welcoming and friendly front desk agent. The entire hotel was clean and well decorated. We both loved the bar on the 8th floor. It was a nice place to grab a drink and hang out. We will definitely stay again when we visit Barcelona!!

We arrived from a cruise ship into Barcelona for a 1 night stay in Barcelona. Having stayed previously in Placa Catalunya, at the mouth of Las Ramblas, this hotel selection was extremely quiet by comparison. I think the location is great. If you like to walk, all is within short walking distance. Visit Las Ramblas and you will arrive within...

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.
