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.

Hotel's Favorite
Enjoyed my few nights here - thanks Axel! I came to tour the city and the Axel was in a great location. About 15-30 min walk to many popular sights including the Barcelona Cathedral, Familia Basilica, Gothic District and a few of the Gaudi houses. Train stations close by as well if you need to go further out. From / to the airport was pretty easy as - I did the train in and the bus back and both were about 10 min walk from the hotel and took around 40-45 min for either. The team at the hotel are very eager to help and will point you to wherever you need to go. The rooms were clean, a good size and well throughout in terms of practicality. Huge shower and open concert washroom which I enjoyed. The room has all the amenities you could possibly need such as a mini bar, robes, dental kits, coffee/tea etc. Beds were comfortable and room was also quiet. The roof top bar was a nice touch. Was lovely having a drink outside (you can also sit inside) and enjoying a nice city view on my first night. All in all I enjoyed my stay. Give er a shot!

An excellent hotel with good service and wonderful people. The places were clean and the receptionist Juanma is probably the best front desk person I've met . The welcome complimentary Iberian ham just you the taste of Spain from the start 🤣🤣

On checking I was greeted by a very polite friendly gentleman (Juanma) who gave me an upgrade free of charge simply due to the fact that I had to wait for my room to be ready which was a very kind gesture. The room was amazing and had a balcony. All the staff were super friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable of the local area. The hotel has a lovely sky bar again very friendly staff. The only negative I can say was the experience I had when I use the gym! I’m not sure if it’s owned or run by the hotel... from the moment I got there it felt like I was constantly being penalised! The lady was very rude and was literally chasing me across the gym telling me to be quiet when lifting weights:/ i’m not the type that makes excessive noise in the gym and was extra quiet because of the spa and relaxation area they had however the lady was being unnecessarily rude. Would advise going somewhere else to use the gym locally.

Dear customer Thank you very much for your positive review about your stay and the staff. We are sorry for the inconveniences experienced with a member of the gym crew, although an external company is running this service, we always assure the same service standards that we provide at the hotel. We will be glad if you could offer us a second chance with a new future booking as we would like to see you again. Kindest Regards Marc - Hotel Manager manager.bcn@axelhotels.com
