Wonderful and welcoming place
Excellent hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. My wife and I were not aware this was a hotel predominantly aimed at the gay community but we were glad we stayed and we were made to feel very welcome. It is in a great location, it is clean and very comfortable. The breakfast quality and choice is very good. The staff and service was superb. Overall really great place to stay and thoroughly recommended.

Excellent location and friendly staff
Hotel and staff were very pleasant. Room was a bit small but clean and fresh. Disappointed that the bed was so hard and meant uncomfortable nights’ sleep.

Gay themed hotel in Madrid...
Had a short 3 night trip to Madrid. Had never stayed at Axel Hotel, a great gay-focused hotel that is also (in their own words) hetero-friendly, before and am very happy we chose this hotel. Could not have been happier really, with the only niggle being the breakfast was a little basic. Otherwise, the service and quality of furnishing, bedding, etc. were of the highest quality. Also, the location is fantastic, being yards away from Anton Martin Metro station and a short walk from Plaza Mayor and Mercado de San Miguel (a must for any visitor to Madrid). All-in, a fabulous break and we will be back...
David, gb3 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Hotel was clearly aimed at the gay community. As such this should be clearly indicated on the hotel booking page which it wasn't.
