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.

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.

- They pump up the EXTREMELY LOUD MUSIC in the front and back of LOBBY 24/7! Why? - One cannot sit in the lobby to listen to your cellphone,-so freaking LOUD! all day and night! Pretty assinine, and annoying of course. - Does the management care the disgusting lack of

Dear Guest, We really appreciate your review about your stay. I am sorry to know your stay was not as satisfactory as expected and I would like to apologize for inconveniences you describe in your comment. As I told you, almost all of our premium Room has diferents designs and we try all the time give the room requested by the preference of our guest in the same categoy of room. The Axel hotel is very popular and it is always fully booked. That doesn't allow us to have all the time expecific room. I your i could change you the next days since we had availability. We do offer very good facilities, which together with the good service levels attract a big range of different customers who don't only book accommodation at the hotel but they also enjoy the nightlife offer. Now that I mentioned the nightlife I would like to raise my discrepancy with your opinion about the prices at the hotel bar; don't forget the Axel hotel offers one of the best rooftop bars in town. Of course, you will find cheaper bars but they don't have the views and the Axel atmosphere. We will be glad if you could offer us a second chance to show you that the hotel offers very good facilities and service standards. We would like to welcome you again in the future. Kindest Regards André - Duty Manager Axel Hotel Barcelona
