Great gay hotel

Gym, location, bar
I would recommend this hotel as a must for any gay traveller to Barcelona. It is not a 5 star W hotel, but I think it has many advantages that the W doesnt have. Well worth a visit at least once! I would come back again

Good but overrated

Excellent location, near public transportation. It has a nice terrace bar (Sky Bar). Staff is amicable.
Great location but a little cramped. Tiny reception area and small elevators shared with patrons of the terrace bar, resulting in long waits for hotel customers. Room was fine, not as nice as the ones pictured on the website. Even though it was a premium room, the shower leaked and on the first day it didn't get cleaned until 7 pm (we left the room by 11 am). It is a great choice for gay travelers but I think it's a little overpriced and overrated, nearby 4-star hotels looked roomier and less cramped with things.

staff, own rooftop bar, location
The staff were great - and beyond having a personality - were very informative, without overt formality. A gay bar on the roof was a great way to meet people, and I did! Axel is very well located, with facilities within a few blocks of everything. I was in a disabled access suite which was fine, but for the shower curtain fail meaning the whole floor was wet all the time = wet feet overtime you enter the bathroom.
