best city in Europe

Completely satisfied with my stay in the Axel Hotel Berlin. Very happy with the facilities. The top floor gym is a highlight. Hotel located close to some great amenities including the largest Department store on mainland Europe. A shout out to the restaurant called "Cafe Des Artistes". Will go again.

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.

Looks can very deceiving

The hotel was not in good condition as compared to how it is shown on their website. Very dark corridors, mirrors placed to make it look larger than it is but also making it easy to walk into after checking in after a long flight. Virtually no storage areas for clothing when unpacked! Once small (and it was the largest) cabinet with a hinged door was broken making it wasy to fall off...it was reported to the front desk staff and no one ever came to the room to fix it. Website states LCD TV's in all the rooms; which is fine but they neglect to tell you that if you wish to watch any television, you much pay additinally for it! What? I didn't care for this VERY, VERY small room at all.

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 idea, bad followthrough

The Axel has a great location, too bad it has a staff that should be moved out as soon as possible. Unfriendly, uninterested, unapproachable, they go out of their way not to be of help. The hotel boasts WiFi in the rooms; well, that's true in room 112 if you stand in the door with one foot in the hallway. Forget hanging a Clean the room sign on the door; they'll do that when the rulebook says it will happen, not before. I was here when it first opened and wanted very much to come back. Now that I have, I am sorry I did and most certainly never will again.

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.

gay friendly hotel

Really is very comfortable, the staff is super friendly, but if you want to exercise the gym is only five machines, we gays look good and this gym is not for nothing, but the location of the hotel is great, the security is good and best of all is that everything is close.

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
