Axel Hotel Barcelona4 stars

Carrer d'Aribau 33, Eixample, Barcelona, Spain | map | get directions |

Gay hotel.

Why this hotel? Gay hotel. Spa & rooftop pool. Great location. Popular choice. Free WiFi.

7.75 Very Good - based on 4136 reviews

The ‘hetero-friendly’ Axel Barcelona offers chic, modern Mediterranean-styled rooms, two bars and a haute cuisine restaurant “Bench”. The rooftop ‘Sky Bar‘ is a destination in its own right, and the Wellness Club 33 offers 500 m² of massage & spa services and personal fitness training.

The Axel is steps away from Punto BCN and other gay venues and shops in Eixample and is less than 10 minutes’ walk from city centre. Naturally, the staff has a wealth of knowledge about everything gay in the city.

A great choice for gay visitors, but at a premium price compared with similar quality hotels in the area.

  2. “Stay at the Axel twice in the past few years. For me, it really is the best'gay' hotel in Europe and staying here is quite a surreal experience in many ways. The only slight issue is that you pay a bit more than for a comparable 'straight' hotel.“
