The world's first chain of gay hotels have their very own branch here in the Catalan capital, aptly named Axel Hotel Barcelona. Describing itself as "hetero-friendly" this upscale four-star establishment promises a stylish experience for all comers, thanks to its simple modern furnished rooms and excellent facilities. The latter includes The Sky rooftop bar with swimming pool, terrace with Jacuzzis and cocktail bar (the scene of many events and parties) as well as a huge spa and wellness centre with hydromassage pool, saunas, gym, solarium, hot tub, Turkish/steam bath and Hammam. Axel Hotel is located in the heart of the so-called Gayxample district of Barcelona, the city's very own Soho. Also worth noting is that the hotel offers free WiFi Internet connection to all its guests. Click the orange reservations button to get price quotes and availability.
lovely staff and facilities and the location was wonderful. I'm already looking forward to returning to the Axel next year!
