Delightful hideaway with a swank contemporary look near Casa Batllo

In a beautifully restored Art Deco building near Gaudi-designed Casa Batllo, Axel Hotel Barcelona is steps away from many Barcelona attractions. Stylish rooms feature a contemporary look and boast free Internet. The Kitchen Restaurant serves Italo-Mediterranean cuisine with Asian and North African touches. The colorful Ground Bar with an outdoor terrace is a trendy place to lounge over a cocktail. Visit the rooftop swimming pool, Jacuzzi and Sky Bar for panoramic city vistas or head to the Wellness Club 33 to find a fitness center, sauna and a spa. 

The hotel is hetero-friendly with open-minded and cosmopolitan atmosphere considering that there is an area around the hotel known as the Gay-xample famous for its lively gay scene.

Highlights
  • Excellent location in the heart of Eixample
  • Free Wi-Fi in all rooms
  • Restaurant serving tasty fusion fare
  • Fitness center and spa with indoor pool at Wellness Club 33
  • Rooftop swimming pool, Jacuzzi and Sky Bar
