Score from 2017 reviews Very good
Exellent location and attractive concept.
A noisy location needs a better isolation. Rather expensive for the quality offered. Pool and whirlpool not attractive. Fitness and wellness rooms rather dark and sad. Too much smoke on the roof terrace.
The location is great. It has a Nice pool top pool and bar.
The hotel lobby is in desperate need of a makeover. The rooms need a thorough cleaning and some maintenance. Wifi is fast but need to relig in everytime you turn your device to standby. Front desk staff very helpful. Rooftop bar staff very unfriendly.
Price to expensiv
Almost everything es great. I have stayed in Axel before, several times. Everything is Still good except front desk people...
The recepcionist, specially one with a terrible attitude. Bar tender in there roof areNt nice either. Pity. But I enjoy my te there anyway.
Close to everything but secluded on the side streets from the tourist crowd. There are an abundance of cafes and restaurants near by. Check in & check out was very easy & friendly service. Fast WiFi. Amazing spot to relax and prepare for another day trip. Very recommended.
The shower has its particular series of challenges as design faucets usually do.
Its location is perfect. Has great facilities but guests still have to pay for using the spa. Clean and nice staff.. Had a nice time staying there.
I think the facilities like the spa should free for guests.
1. Gay friendly 2. Quite Modern Inside 3. Sky Bar 4. Perfect location, located in the gay district and not far from lots of restaurants 5.I have not tried out the Sauna and Massage, but I would guess they are very gay friendly. 6. If you are gay, does not care about noise, does not care about cleaniess, want a bit of adventure, this is the place.
1. Sky bar opens until 3 am, and it is noisy. I can hear the noise when I sleep 2. Not very clean for the price paid. You can see dirts in toilet, red lipsticks on the pillow 3. Far away from seaside 4. Lot of non-residents go to sky bar at night, make the hotel resident feel like living in the public 5. Sky bar very pricy than other bars
Location of the hotel, wifi speed
Price quality in general (avg eur 200 for our 11 night stay), poor quality breakfast not so good dinner, issues with: doors/airco/locker/lights/water, housekeeping room: unclean bathroom ceiling/bed sidetables, missing towels/soapbars, housekeeping hotel: unclean lifts all the time (floor, walls, cocktail glasses, etc.)
Staff nicer Than 2 years ago
Rooms need renovations.
The staff were very helpful and efficient. Rooms and hotel in general were clean. location was good. The roof top pool and deck was nice. Enjoyed my stay, and probably will stay again in future.
Pool, Bar and spa
Rooms are not 4 star quality, hotel needs refurbishment and takes advantage of gay travellers who are willing to spend money on vacation
we enjoyed our time at the Axel - loved the concept and we (two girls) felt very safe. The rooftop seems to be buzzing but its just another gay party really, not very mixed and that can get a repetitive. Rooms were clean.
We stayed in a room at an upper floor. Looks like the gents on the bar were not used to queuing up for the washrooms - one of the guests from the rooftop couldnt wait and decided to pee into the wall next to our room. We told the lady at reception and they did decide to clean it up the next morning (Sunday at 7am).
As LGBT venue and hotel this really does cater for all your needs. Great atmosphere, easy to meet people and great facilities. The location is also awesome! SkyBar is loads of fun.
If this was a normal hotel I'd say it would be a bit overpriced, but you are paying for the 'gay' specific nature of the hotel. Decide if that's worth paying for...
front office (we waited 45 min inline to check in) staff at pool deck / bar
Spa is amazing
A bit noisy on weekend nights, but it is centrally located and a bit of a party hotel
Good rooms with a lot komfort, near to the Rambla....
The breakfast is boring.... the same every day and not homemade :-(
Were a bit surprised to fibd out that this a gay hotel, but the room was great, we even got free upgrade, was really great!
May be a bit confusing if you feel uncomfortable amoung tons of gay people.
Little noisy. Slow wifi
Location was great.
Too much of a party atmosphere. Could hear noise from bar in our room. Staff seemed puzzled by questions and requests. Had to push them to be helpful.
Gay theme Location
Don't support heterosexual friendly concept. Sosa service terrible
cleanliness and informative staff
no shower cap in the bathroom
overall very good for gay travelers as in the middle of gay area with lots of opportunities for socializing
I had to remind the hotel every day to clean the room, otherwise i would risk coming back to the hotel and finding my room not cleaned the gym is very small as well as the pool on the top floor breakfast was quite poor
Totally hetero friendly gay hotel. Great stay!
To fix my tv remote, I had to retrieve batteries, which didn't resolved the problem then bring remote for replacement. Poor service.
