Our first stay in Spain and our first hotel in Spain. The experience was excellent. Being train enthusiasts we tended to use the system a lot and so wanted to book a hotel close to a station. The location of the hotel to the metro is just a block down from the hotel meaning carrying or trundling luggage is not an issue. The room smelt good and were well presented and clean, I loved the lotions and potions provided including the gorgeous soaps. The cafe was nice and funky, as is reception worth a trip just to sit in one of the big chairs at reception. The bar are was also funky. Loved the toilets on the ground floor as well, very Ali McBeal style. (for those who watched Ali McBeal). Thank you for the great experience we will be back next Christmas.

This hotel is close to everything, the rooms are nice and modern, and the staff was very nice. Good place for couples, gay or straight. Even though the hotel is marketed to gay people, there were just as many straight couples staying there. I will always stay at Axel when I return to Barcelona.

Just returned from a trip to Barcelona where I stayed at the Axel Hotel & Spa. This is a great hotel that is convenient for walking around best spots in downtown Barcelona. Easy to get to the Catalunya Square and to the best shopping locations. Loved the spa and Wellness Center that is part of the Axel and enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. Staff at the Axel are very friendly and helpful to those of us that need some help communicating with very limited Spanish speaking skills. I will definitely be back to stay at the Axel Hotel again!

The staff made us feel welcome when we arrived and this continued during our stay. The breakfast was great and the two free internet computers on the first floor came in handy. Roof top bar and pool added to the holiday vibe of this modern clean hotel. The free refridgerated bottled water on each floor was very much appreciated.

My partner & I were very impressed with the hotel staff. They were extremely friendly,helpful and professional. As we were there in July, the pool on the roof was much appreciated. Another plus was the 2 computers available for use at no extra charge in addition to "pay as you go" wifi available throughout the hotel.

Very good does not seem to cover the excellence of the service and manner displayed by all the staff. The accomodation is of a standard far higher than one would expect of a 3 or 4 star hotel of this size. I cannot recommend this hotel more highly. As a frequent international traveller I would welcome any opportunity to stay at a venue of this calibre.

We were very pleased with our stay at this smart, hip hotel. Staff were courteous and helpful. Room was large, clean and well decorated. Excellent breakfast, which was included in the price we paid. Jacuzzi and pool on the roof were really nice, though the lighting in the jacuzzi area could be dimmed a little.

What a fantastic hotel - Nice relaxed feel. Great for leisure and business. Due to bad bathroom design the water goes everywhere in the bathroom and the damage on the wood in room shows - in both rooms that i have stayed in the past 2 months... As someone who spends 150+ nights a year in hotels the breakfast buffet is the best - keep up the great work and see you next time

It is a great place for gay people. The hotel hosts an international crowd in a very relaxing atmosphere. It is the perfect place to enjoy the great nightlife of Barcelona.

Having stayed at many 5* hotels this is overwhelmingly one of my favourites from the rooftop bar and pool to the immaculate and spacious rooms. The friendly staff added an extra welcome dimension. Can't wait to go in the height of Summer.
