stylish, comfortable hotel!

We arrived at Axel which is a hotel that caters to the gay community as a straight couple. We were greeted right away with the concierge knowing our names! (we were the only hetero couple to check in that day, but still!) The rooms were beautiful and sleek. We opted for the room upgrade our second night so we could have a spa bathtub which was so relaxing. My husband and I very much enjoyed the fact that there are no walls in the bathrooms, just dark red tinted glass so you are able to see your partner. It was very sexy but may not be for everyone. Morning breakfast was tasty with a nice selection.

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.

New Year's Eve

We attended the gala dinner on New Year's Eve. The food was fine, the service was good but the entertainment was disappointing. The evening didn't really provide value for money. Which was a pity, as apart from this our stay was very enjoyable.

Great location with lovely staff

We both really enjoyed our 4 night stay in this hotel.. top marks except for the lack of privacy in the bathroom and the noisy air-con.. apart from those two small items, its a great hotel in an idea area with very helpful and pleasant staff.. a huge choice of good places to eat with a 5 min walk and only 2 mins from Ka De We etc.. will come again........

The hotel and especially the staff were great!

I stayed here for 5 nights during my first trip to Berlin. The staff were attentive to all my inquiries from internet access to calling cabs to printing google maps to help me get to sites I wanted to visit. Staff were always gracious. Really nice place!

Axel Hotel Berlin

Although it took a few minutes to get someone at the reception desk (it was after 9pm when we checked in), the entire experience at the Axel Hotel was fantastic. The hotel is just a block away from the Wittenbergplatz U-bahn station which gets you to all the great sights. The rooms were large for Europe and very stylishly laid out. 6th floor had a fitness center, steam room, dry sauna, and outdoor whirlpool (not hot though and only one section had air bubbles -- weird). There is also an outdoor lounge area on the roof and a bar, but we never saw this bar operating. I can only imagine how much fun this place would have been if there had been more travelers staying there and we had been there on a weekend. I would not recommend this hotel for families with children or for anyone offended by advertisements and art featuring some nudity. This is an adult oriented hotel with a fantastic restaurant (2-for-1 3 course menu dinners on Thursdays!) and in a great area. Would love to stay here again and again.

Axel Hotel, Berlin, Germany

The location was great; staff were helpful in German and English. Coat hooks and towel hooks would have been very nice and an easy fix. The "business center" was basically a computer in a hallway and often busy. The hotel is in the heart of one of the LGBT areas of the city. [...]

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Buy a "tageskarte" or day-ticket at the U-bahn station a block away. It's 6 euro 50 cents for the ABC zones (all zones) and can be used for any form of transportation all day (until 3 a.m.). If you don't have coins for the machine, buy them at the ticket box from a live person. Don't forget to validate the ticket at the station.
