Why this hotel: Gay hotel. Spa & roof top pool. Great location. Best seller.

Most Booked Award 2014
Top 25

The ‘hetero-friendly’ Axel Hotel offers 105 chic, modern Mediterranean-styled rooms and a new wine bar. The popular rooftop ‘Sky Bar’ is a destination in its own right, and the Wellness Club 33 offers 500 m² of water zones, spa treatments, massages and personal fitness training.

The Axel is just a short walk from the most popular gay bars and clubs in Eixample and is less than 10 minutes’ walk from city centre. Naturally, the concierge has a wealth of knowledge of everything gay about the city.

A good choice for gay visitors, but expect to pay a premium price when compared with similar quality hotels in the area.

Why this hotel: Near the gay nightlife. Rooftop bar & terrace. Great value.

Modern, stylish hotel in a great location, at a great price.  H10 Casanova is housed within a beautifully refurbished 18th century building, just a short walk from Plaza de Cataluña.

Facilities include a rooftop bar, sun terrace and plunge pool.  All comfortable, air-conditioned guest rooms feature LCD TV, minibar, safe and free WiFi.

The hotel has a gym and sauna, but we think the nearby gay Sauna Casanova will be more popular. Many of Barcelona’s best gay bars are just a couple of minutes’ walk from the hotel.

The location is also excellent for exploring the city (the Urgell L1 underground station is just 100 metres away).

Plaza de Catalunya & La Rambla

Plaça de Cataluñya is generally considered to be the city centre of Barcelona, and the intersection of the “old historic city” and the newer 19th century Eixample.

To the south is La Rambla, the city’s most famous street, connecting the Plaza with Port Vell and the beach.  The area is filled with boutique shops and cafés, and the gay scene in Eixample is a short walk from our recommended hotels.

9.6 Fantastic based on 38 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel: Super stylish. Spacious rooms. Near Sauna Corinto.

Ever bought a pair of Camper shoes? Now you can stay at the label’s own hotel.

The Casa Camper BCN is located in the Raval district, full of art galleries, restaurants and just a 2-minute walk from Plaza Cataluña. The Eixample gay district is a 5-minute walk (although Corinto Sauna is just around the corner).

The gothic, 19th-century exterior hides one of our favourite boutique hotels in the city.  Guest rooms are minimalist in style but very comfortable. Each ‘room’ has two areas (a bedroom and lounge) separated by a corridor, LCD TV, laptop-sized safe, hammock, iPod dock and free WiFi.

Most rates include a full breakfast buffet and as many snacks as you like during the day (sandwiches, soup, pastries, bakery, soft drinks, juices, coffee and tea).

Nice touch. Great location, excellent service and utterly cool!

Mar Bella beach

The most gay-popular beach in Barcelona. While Mar Bella is officially a nudist beach, as many guys keep their tackle undercover as those who let it all hang out. If hitting the beach is your priority, then hotels in this area could be for you.

Depending on which hotel you choose, it is 3 to 6 Metro stops to Barcelona city center (L4). It takes about 20 – 30 minutes to reach the gay nightlife in Eixample. If you stay out very late, you will need to get a taxi back.

However hotels in this area are close to the excellent El Poblenou walking street which is full of very good restaurants and cafes generally offering much better value that in the centre.

Why this hotel: Near the gay beach. Fantastic pool. Walk to La Rambla.

This good quality, modern hotel is a great option for those who want a 5 star hotel within comfortable walking distance of the Mar Bella gay beach (a 15 minute stroll along the promenade).

The contemporary-styled guest rooms are spacious, and many have excellent sea views. We particularly like the Superior and Deluxe rooms that have their own private terrace. All the rooms have LCD TV, with satellite channels, a CD and DVD player and free WiFi.

Location-wise, the hotel is about a 15-minute walk to La Rambla, but you might want to take the metro (or a taxi) to the Eixample gay district. The popular Nova Icària beach is just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel’s front door.
