Faithful to the concept and style of Axel-design, comfortable, cosmopolitan atmosphere, is a good value for price. The 101 rooms combine the touch of decoration from Modernism with the warmth and elegance of the Mediterranean. New spaces at Axel Hotel Barcelona, will become the urban meeting point of the heterofriendly.

Lovely hotel in the heart of Eixample. Very cool reception, good breakfast and a great rooftop bar make it ideal to chill and party. Our room was good in size and had a small balcony overlooking the side street. Comfortable for few night stay. House keeping was good and the front desk was very accommodating and responsive at all times. Loved our stay.

My husband and I stayed in Barcelona from May 18th through Junef 4th. We also stayed at two other hotels, May 18 to May 21 and May 21 to May 28th. We stayed at Axel May 28th through June 4th and this hotel, by far, was the best of the three. The staff, housekeeping and Roof Top bartenders were all very professional and pleasant to communicate with. The amenities were fine and most important functional! The included breakfast was the best, and the hostess - sorry but I forgot your name - was very good (also good looking :o) The room space, designs and cleanliness were top notch. Again, I will definitely book this place when we return to this beautiful country called, Spain next May! Oh, and I can't forget specifically, Daniel! Thank you Daniel for everything. You're so much appreciated.

the first time i went to Axel Barcelona it was in 2010. the hotel was a very sophisticated boutique hotel with great service and amazing people.  I have now  in 2022 spent a week there and had a really bad experience at Axel Hotel Barcelona.  the hotel is run down with low quality service from front desk service.  I found cockroaches twice in the bathroom, the hotel hallway stinks and the bedroom is old. I filed two complaints at the front desk, but they didn't do anything. There are so many better hotels in the same area. It is really a pity to see axel H. like this.

I have stayed in this hotel for five days. The polite attitude of the staff, the location, breakfast and the neighbourhood, everything was perfect. I would like to thank to Axel Hotel's Jui in particular for making this short visit of Barcelona very easy for me :) I think I would stay in the same hotel when I go back and enjoy their hospitality & short distance to the city center.

We stayed here for a few days in May (Sunday - Wednesday). The hotel itself is in a great location for getting around Barcelona and is a beautiful building. The staff we met were all lovely, check in was quick and easy. We had booked a premium room and was given room 504. When we got to the room, we, at first, thought we were given the wrong room, it seemed small for a premium room but after checking the website rooms, it seemed to be correct, just a bit small and basic, no robes, slippers etc although no real problem as we didn’t plan on spending much time in it. When we checked in we were given 2 vouchers for a glass of Cava at the terrace bar, it was lovely, the bar and sun terrace are really nice, fab views, comfy sun loungers, good atmosphere. great shame the bar is only open at weekends, couldn’t really understand why as there were people using the sun terrace ever day during our stay and there was no bar service at all. Also the towels for the sun terrace are located on the cleaners trolly, nobody told us this or any other guest as when we realised where we could get them, other guests were asking us where to get a towel from. Later that evening we had a drink at the bar on the 7th floor, it was busy, lively and a good end to an evening, shame it’s not open during the day for even a coffee. Breakfast was ok, basic in its choice, nice coffee though. We’ve stayed at both Axel hotels in Barcelona, Axel Two was the better hotel although the location wasn’t as good. Would we stay here again…. Probably not.
