Just spent two nights at the Axel hotel and can thoroughly recommend it. Excellent location- walkable from train station which is only a ten minute journey to the airport.
Lovely atmosphere as soon as you walk in thanks to the friendly staff, Balinese influence and comfortable bar area in which to relax. There is a basket of apples at the door which is a nice touch. We arrived early at midday and were immediately shown up to our room which was lovely. We had upgraded to a superior double which was spacious with a balcony overlooking the internal courtyard and a sizeable bathroom with free standing bath. lovely products in the room and a very comfortable bed.
Breakfast is amazing and not to be missed. We didn't manage to get there until 9.30am every day and expected it to be deserted but it was heaving and looked as if it could go on all day. Very buzzy with what seemed like lots of outsiders who were coming in to eat because it was so good. Huge array of fruit, meats, cheeses and delicious bacon plus homemade porridge and honey with almonds... I could go on! It is not cheap but well worth it, it will keep you going all day!
Other nice touches are the free tea, coffee and cakes that are always available on the bar for residents, wide selection of wines and beers and copious amounts of delicious paprika crisps and nuts to nibble upon. Lunch boxes are also available for packing away any little treats you fancy!
It is a very relaxed homely place in which to stay, but also offers a haven at the end of a long day of cycling, shopping and sightseeing. It really does feel as if you are staying with friends and helping yourself to their fridge. We will be back.
