First time and last at this hotel

It was a very convenient location but the room was dirty(long hair in my bed.. Come on ) when I complain to the front desk the diva attitude of the guys working there doesn't works as well. They must to remember that hotel business is all about customer satisfaction. In other words I was disappointed with the experience being a gay male doesn't mean that I would stay in an average clean hotel

Great place to stay in Schoeneberg. Very mixed international crowd. Friendly and relaxed with top amenities. I enjoyed the spa and the roof terrace. They should fix the hot tub (no bubbles)

Not bad but could be better

Positive: Supreme location. Very nice and helpful staff. they helped with any request. Negative: The room was very small comparing to Berlin standards. You get just 1 wifi code for each guest. so when switching between my iPhone to laptop, I needed to disconnect, wait and put my password in the other device... that's a shame in the year of 2014. The bed was really not comfortable (but maybe that's just me)... the pillows were as thin as a sheet, so I couldn't sleep well. The jacuzzi is great, but the water were cold and it was always occupied by same people... We were two but got just 1 bathrobe in the room. we had to ask for another one. Bottom line: you can get better deal for the same price. just stick to this area.

Axel Hotel is a heterofriendly hotel. We don't know about this situation. My husband and I didn't be disturbed about this. Everybody, ecpecially staffs were very friendly. Breakfast and the other facility were very good. Location was excelent for Berlin. Subway and bus station are very near. We will stay here, again.

Axel

This is the first time that I stayed at The Axel Berlin. I should say this is the first time I have been able to afford the place and it is worth every cent. The loaction and the place in general is very well worth it. I have stayed at the Axel in Buenos Aires before and this one has that one beat hands down.

Week in Germany

The axel was average experience the room is small and is only comfortable for one person. The room has little to no storage and an exposed closet . Finishes in the hotel look cheap. The gym is a joke it's one machine. the location is next to kadewe and a major train station but its in the boring West Berlin that is quiet and bars are only good for happy hour and back rooms its an 45+croud . If u are young It's far from the trendy clubs and bars of kreuzberg and friedrichshan

Very good location. Accessible to most everything.

The rooms are smaller with not much storage for clothing etc. The walls are painted black with a red light behind the glass in the shower evidently for a romantic ambience. The hotel controls the A/C depending on the weather, so if you need the windows open get a room away from the busy street noise. We upgraded to a suite after 3 days and were much happier. For 40 Euros more you get plenty of closet space, double sinks, and the room is much larger. I would stay here again, however would probably reserve a suite to start with. It's good value and close to transportation, eateries and pubs. This hotel is 75% gay and 25% straight. I like that diversity factor too.

Rip-off of Gay Community

We prepaid five nights at the Axel Hotel for a discount. Big mistake! The room was about the size of a college dorm room. There were no dresser or drawers -- just a narrow ledge above the bed to put clothes on. There was no closet --just about a foot-long rod above the ledge. 50% of the room was taken up by an all glass shower in the center of the room with a red light in it. The room was painted in an ugly flat black paint. There were no tables and barely enough room to pile luggage on the floor; assuming you stepped over it. The hallway smelled of sweat. This seemed more like a bathhouse than a hotel. We decided immediately to get a room at another hotel and, since we had already checked in and prepaid the Axel room for five nights, keep that as a secondary room to shower, nap, etc when in the gay area of Berlin. When we returned to use the Axel room a couple days later, they had re-rented the room to someone else, refused to either refund our money or give us a replacement room. My complaints that we had pre-paid for the room and that they were unfairly receiving double rent for the same room fell on deaf ears. There are many good hotel options in Shoneburg close to all the gay venues to consider other than the very dissapointing Axel Hotel.
