Axel Hotel Barcelona

4-Star Hotel in Carrer d'Aribau 33, Eixample, Barcelona, Spain  map 

Why this hotel?: Gay hotel. Spa & rooftop pool. Great location. Popular choice.

The ‘hetero-friendly’ Axel Barcelona offers chic, modern Mediterranean-styled rooms, 2 bars and a haute cuisine restaurant “Bench”. The rooftop ‘Sky Bar‘ is a destination in its own right, and the Wellness Club 33 offers 500 m² of massage & spa services and personal training.

Axel is steps away from Punto BCN, gay bars and shops in Eixample and less than 10 minutes’ walk to city centre. Naturally, the staff have a wealth of knowledge about all things gay in the city.

A great choice for gay visitors, but at a premium price compared with similar quality hotels in the area.

    Good location, poor hotel

    “This hotel is ok if it cost half as much. The staff is very helpful and location great. After that, not so much. I bought a premium room, it is tiny. the shower door doesn't close, the bathroom light is behind you so your face is in a shadow, the television only has about 10 channels, only Bloomberg Business is the only one in English. No sports channels on any language.

    It is supposed to be a non smoking facility. Its not. My next door neighbors smoked, my room reeked of their smoke. When I complained, the receptionist told me there was nothing they could do about it.

    There were a surprising amount of straight couples staying there since it is openly catering to gays. the roof top pool is small but the bar is lively.

    All in all I'd give this place a miss.“
