Horrible!!!

Would not recommend Tue, Dec 1, 2015
Hotel staff doesnt care about guests. I tried to checkin and they almost sent me to another hotel because front desk agent was busy twking care of his friend. Hotel charges for breakfast, spa and everysingle thng. Rooms are small and if they advertize their spa, they should be included for guests. Elevators are outdated and lobby space is small.

Great location. The room only had one chair, could use a more conformable one. Not bath matt for slipper shower. Needed one, not available. Staff was great, and all spoke English.

Fantastic Hotel

Would recommend Thu, Oct 8, 2015
My first time in Barcelona and I had high expectations. The city and The Axel Hotel surpassed those expectations. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The spa and amenities were wonderful. The location was perfect. The marketing rep for the hotel joined us at Sky Bar and really made us feel at home. She was lovely and fun! I will definitely stay at this hotel again!

Barcelona

Would recommend Mon, Aug 10, 2015
Great location and very courteous/polite staff. Does require some updates. Stayed at this hotel several years ago and for some reason it seems the music was a bit louder in the lobby than I recall….maybe it's just me!

Wonderful location/friendly staff

Would recommend Fri, Jul 31, 2015
The Hotel Axel is in a wonderful location for getting around Barcelona. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are small and simple but clean. Not a fancy place to stay, but I felt quite comfortable. If you are looking for a somewhat basic comfortable hotel in an excellent location, then by all means stay here.

Heterofriendly hotel

Would not recommend Wed, Jul 8, 2015
Did’t know this was a thematic hotel. Even though the staff was nice and the location is fine, we don’t recommend this hotel for a family, just for couples. Almost naked boys on huge banners at reception, male perfume for lotion and soap in the room and disco located at the entrance are some of the details on this hotel.
