I have just returned from 4 nights at the Axel Hotel in Barcelona, and yet again, I had a very comfortable, no hassle stay. This is my second visit to the hotel.
It's location is perfect, just a short stroll from Universitat, and Place de Catalunya. Very handy for the Metro and the Aerobus.
I did arrive at the hotel very early, due to my flight times. The receptionist did try to accomodate me, as I was extemely tired after getting up so early, but this was not possible. However, she took my suitcase, so I didn't have to drag that around the city. I returned at 1330, and after a little wait, I was given my room.
I was allocated toom 603, I had asked for a high room on my booking. I was at first disappointed as the room overlooked the internal part of the building, rather than the street. However, after a few hours, i got used to this, and in fact, turned out to be a blessing, as it is nice and quiet at night time.
I used the spa twice during the stay, all in working order, a nice place to relax.
Reception staff were always pleasant when asked a question. I only had one problem during my stay... the main bedroom light starting flashing on and off. This became quite annoying, so I went to report it. It was during the evening, so couldn't not be fixed there and then, I had to wait until the next day. Not a major issue, I just used the smaller lights.. and as promised, the broken light was fixed the following day.
All in all, a nice hotel, good location, comfy rooms. I paid a fair price this time, 225 pounds for 4 nights, room only, which was fine for me.
Would definitely stay again, when I next visit BCN.
