Stayed for 3 nights in January after a worktrip.

Location

The hotel is in the heart of the Eixample District. More importantly, it is within walking distance to Passeig de Garcia, Las Ramblas and within a 5 minute walk to Universitat station. I couldn't have asked for a better location

Facilities

The gym is attached to Wellness Club 33, and guests are allowed to use the vast range of equipment for free. While some of the equipment could do with some upkeep, the range is very impressive. The spa is available for 10 euros per day, and is reasonable value for money considering there is a pool with multiple jetstreams/jacuzzis, a sauna and steambath, excellent showers and hotbeds.

The Peruvian-Japanese restaurant adjoining the restaurant serves excellent food, decent value albeit relatively small servings.

The rooftop bar is lively. Cocktails are excellent all round.

Staff

The receptionists were very well-presented. They are fantastic conversationalists and come from a diverse range of backgrounds. I found Bartosz particularly friendly and helpful with advice regarding sightseeing and the nightlife.

Overall an outstanding stay in this hotel - highly recommended for excellent value (particularly in winter)

Very conviniently located in the heart of the city, area packed with bars, restaurants, and public transportation is at hand.

The recepcionists are really friendly, welcoming and polite. Xavier, Nacho and Daniel were there for us and we appreciate their help (we got accommodated in premium room for free and loved the room). We'll for sure be back!

Lived in Barcelona for a few months and needed a place to stay last week, this was the perfect spot. Absolutely love the roof top bar, rooms are clean and the staff are very courteous-especially Nacho!

Regular visitor since many years here, so don’t expect a bad review … ;-)
Of course it is for a reason that I stick to this same hotel – as a matter of fact there are more reasons than one …

The hotels decoration is simple yet so stylish which makes me feel comfortable from the moment I enter the lobby. Then there is the friendly hospitality at the front desk which makes me feel welcome to my home-for-a-few-days. Up in the room I find a perfectly clean place which confirms that this is going to be a very pleasant stay.

But there is more the Axel is offering such as the rooftop bar for a drink and a chat. Or for a smoke while enjoying the wonderful wide view. In the basement there is a gym to keep my body and a wellness area to keep my soul in shape.
The Axel Sky Bar btw is obviously quite a popular hangout especially on weekends and special event nights.

The great (as in “big” as well as in “wonderful”) bed makes me longing for laying between the sheets for a few minutes more and more and more … But there is something I definitely want to get out of bed for: breakfast is a treat … ! So now I am in just the right mood to enjoy the amazing city of Barcelona!

For the gay people reading this: the Axel is right in the heart of your paradise … ! For the straight people AND for the gay people (get out of those many clubs a once and a while) Plaza Universitat is only two blocks away and you will find Plaza Catalunya within a ten minute very pleasant walk.

Finally, no matter how great the place may be, at the end of the day it is the people who make the difference. In the Axel you will meet a friendly staff who is able to make you aware of just that difference. So here are my special thanks to housekeeping and restaurant staff and Mark, Andre, Nacho, Daniel and the Polish guy (who is killing me now for forgetting his name).

Room Tip: It all depends of what you like ... There is a room for every taste!
