Stayed here for 2nights in November. Hotel is a good 4* but not amazing. Couple of things not perfect...There was no soap/ toiletries in the bathroom when i arrived so had to ask for them. Also although the shower cubicle was, i am sure clean, but it has little chips or marks in the plastic base. The bed was very comfortable and rain shower was good. The gym was also good. I used the spa but it was empty probably due to winter season but still nice to relax in. The room i had was nice and big with its own enclosed balcony.

Even though not as modern as it was a decade ago, Axel remains to be a great hotel due to is location and attentive staff, as well as good services - for example the gym, which is not offered by many 4* properties in the Eixample area
