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

Weekend Break

Second time staying in Axel Barcelona. Brilliant Hotel for location, 10 mins walks if even that from Placa De Catalyluna. Shops and access to Metro. Hotel located right beside nightlife. We upgraded last time too...but this time we got a room on second floor with balcony and Jacuzzi bath. Definitely worth getting.....don't put too much Bath gel or its bubbles Galore!!! Didn't eat in hotel except for 1 breakfast...(guess we spent way to long in the Jacuzzi :o) ) Breakfast was ok...good enough to set you up for your day. Overall...yes I'd definitely recommend Axel hotel. Staff also friendly and helpful. Tip: when staying for more than a few days ask reception to make sure to give you the free wifi access for ALL your stay. Otherwise it runs out in three days. Enjoy !!

Great Staff

Four Star by American Standard No. No free shuttle from airport. No free cable tv. No help with bags. Room was ok something was in the drain in sink which should have been fixed before l was given the room. Had to put key in the wall for lights and air. They had free gym, and restaurant and bars. Now the great news staff was very nice and gave me perfect directions on every where l wanted to go. The hotel is within walking distance of many of the main attractions and center of town. Outside the hotel there are bars, restaurants, drug stores, grocery stores, clothing stores, shoe stores ect. The best location.. The room was cleaned every day. The cleaning staff was great.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Rambla Best food , a lot to choose from best value back streets near or in the big almost open air market. Museums and sites get coupon book and get tickets online to avoid long lines Go after or before Merce holiday it is very crowded at this time. The Art, is everywhere the architecture is like no other in the world. Be very careful with money and clothes. My bags were full by the time l got home half my clothes were gone. Barcelona Airport Barcelona Airport . Take nothing of value and very little clothes if you are a size 12 and under you can buy clothes there.
