Great hotel in Barcelona!
This was our first stay in an Axel hotel and we were very pleased with the experience. We had two rooms on the second floor, both of which were a good size and had all the amenities required for a short stay - also the pillows were ridiculously comfy!! The Sky Bar was a great place to relax in the evenings, both before and after going out for dinner. The only downside was that the price of cocktails seemed a lot higher than any other bars. I didn’t use the spa and this was mainly due to having to pay extra for entry. The hotel is in a great location close to many bars and restaurants. There are a number of small supermarkets close by, and some lovely cafes for breakfast. There are also two Metro stations within 10 minutes walk so it was easy to get around Barcelona and to/from the airport. All in all, the hotel was a great base for a long weekend in Barcelona and we will definitely be returning!

Great stay
Firstly I’d like to say that despite not advertising that this is hotel is aimed at the gay community we had a great stay. Although they were predominantly gay men around the hotel and sky bar, we were made to feel very welcome.The first room we were put in had a faulty air conditioning unit but the manager couldn’t be faulted as he moved us straight away to a bigger premium room and left us a bottle of champagne. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel is convenient for Place de Catalunya, approx 10 mins away.

Fantastic hotel & location
Fantastic hotel, location and staff, loved the rooftop bar and the manager Alexandros was a gem! I stayed here with a couple of friends, we enjoyed our stay and despite being heterosexual we were never felt to feel different at anytime st the hotel including the bar area. Will def be visiting again!
