I stayed for a weekend in January, my seeond visit to the Axel and I think it is generally a good hotel which offers value for money and a good location. The outside temperature was -16°C, which meant the rooms were a bit cold, but maybe that is to be expected in such a climate. The breakfast was great and the staff really helpful and friendly - with lots of local knowledge on where to visit and how to get to places. My only concern was that there appeared to be several rent boys in the gym/spa area of the hotel, which can be accessed without any type of key/people being checked. Their presence was obvious and several other guests commented on how it gave the place a rather seedy atmosphere and because many of the lockers had no keys to lock possessions away, meant you could not secure your personal effects.
I mentioned this to the reception, and despite their positive attitude and friendliness to all other aspects of my stay, they didn't seem to be bothered about the presence of non-guests in the otel's facilities...I was a bit saddened by this reaction.
All in all, however, a great place to stay.
