Really friendly and helpful and mixed amazing cocktails at thr roof bar. Quite central so convenient for walking to most suitable sites. Would not recommend the transfer with aerocity as left us at airport for an hour on arrival and after three phone calls decided to opt for a taxi. Would not necessarily recommend trip to Roca Village as cheaper...

Having stayed at the sister hotel in Berlin, we had high expectations of our stay at the Axel Barcelona – but we were disappointed. It has a good location just outside the high tourist zone yet a convenient 10-minute walk from it. The front desk was both efficient and friendly. The lobby area was appealing - but very insecure. It...

We booked a year in advance and got a great deal on a 7 night stay at the Axel hotel Barcelona.

After reading mixed reviews on Trip Advisor, I did wonder what the Axel Hotel would actually be like when I arrived. However, I need not have worried, it was a nice, albeit quite pricey hotel.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
