Great time. Only suggestion would be to remove the 10 euro charge for sauna access and make sure the roof top pool and hot tub are heated and open in the winter
Danny, us6 night trip

Great location and ameneties. Very small rooms.
Great location. Hotel's public areas and amenities are excellent. Rooms less so. Avoid the standard room - it's very small, poorly designed and uncomfortable. Excellent staff.
Warren, us5 night trip
Good 6.0
Could be better
I thought I would try this "concept" hotel out. It was OK, but the main issue was that the room wasn't very comfortable. The mattress is hard and I could hear all the noises form the street and the neighboring rooms and bathrooms. The gym could be better- it's basically a room cramped with machines, and they have a lot of rules but not much space to actually work out (so I ended up paying for a holmes place day pass). The location is great though, and the staff were super sweet! Depending on prices in the area, it could be good value.

Best Place To Stay in Barcelona!
This was my third stay at the Axel and I cant imagine staying anywhere else in Barcelona. Great location, awesome staff, great amenities too. Specail thanks to Marta who checked me in, stored my luggage and helped me practice my Spainsh. She was terrific! 😊

Very Good 8.0
Superior not superior.
It was my wedding anniversary and my birthday.We got a superior room but we got the tiniest room (as superior) when we all now that wasn’t superior. The bathroom has zero outlets ( sorry you can’t dry your hair , or style your hair , or plug anything. The light in the bathroom is yellow , making it impossible to put your makeuo right. ) Cleaning ladies not respecting signs of do not disturb and walking in when naked, etc.

Great location. Nice rooftop bar. I would redesign the rooms with real closets. Men soliciting for services is not very pleasant

Great hotel, excellent staff!! I will be back!
This was my second visit to the Axel Barcelona, but it will not be my last! The staff was incredible, from the GM the maids everyone went out of their way to be friendly and accommodating. The hotel is in a great location and has events that attract people who aren’t staying at the hotel. Happy hours by the pool and another happy hour at night at the bar on the 7th floor. The front desk staff was great and always helpful when I needed directions to local spots. Hotel is also walking distance to some of the best restaurants in Barcelona.
