Fabulous 8.8 From 711 reviews

Poor 2.0
Not as advertised
Extremely disappointed. When I booked this hotel, it was not specified that this hotel was specifically for gay men. When I booked the hotel and saw the pictures the room was not the one that I saw on the website. To top things off, I booked a hotel room for my friend (male) too and he felt uncomfortable as well. I felt terrible because I was the one that booked it. I spoke to Fernando (concierge) and told him how I felt about it, and he could not do anything about it because I booked through I called and no one was able to resolve this issue. The pictures that I saw on it was not as advertised. (I don't have anything against gay men) The fact that this was not mentioned in and the pictures didn't specify anything. It was something that was out of the ordinary. Thank you.

Exceptional 10.0
Great hotel, amazing staff! Highly recommend!
I stayed at the axel Madrid in August and was truly impressed. The hotel is very hetero-friendly; a good 40-50% of the travelers I saw were straight couples, so if you’re not gay don’t let that stop you. The hotel is in a great location. Convenient to almost all the historic tourist sites and walking distance to most of them. It is not in the middle of the gay area but it is only a 12-15 minute walk to that part of Madrid. The rooftop deck/bar/pool is really nice and a great place to relax after a day of sightseeing. I had an amazing room overlooking the street. It was quiet and spacious and had a great view of the street the hotel is on. Where the hotel stood out was its service and staff. The GM, Saul, is amazing. I had a small issue with some construction noise and he completely took care of it and made me feel like I was a VIP staying in a five star resort. Overall the staff was great- very helpful and went out of their way to try to help me have a great stay! There are two pharmacies and a grocery store on the same block, very convenient. Can’t say enough nice things about my experience at Axel Madrid. Would definitely stay again and would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to friends and family!

Good 6.0
Good breakfast buffet. Not so good beds/ pillows. The rooftop bar was “under renovation” but didn’t really see any workers working on it. Since this was one of the draws for the hotel, it was a major let-down.

Very Good 8.0
The roof top pool area was not well serviced often there no towels or sun lotion. Bar closed. Pool cold. Room clean. But had to request toiletries and towels. Front desk was great.

Great location but beds are uncomfortable
This hotel was in a great location - walking distance to all the sights and to lots of amazing restaurants and bars. The staff was super nice and the roofdeck was beautiful. Some cons - didn't provide free water although there are little stores to buy water for cheap. The beds are also ridiculously hard so it was hard to get a good nights sleep since I prefer a soft-medium med. The pillows were also awful... very stiff and unfluffable.
