Great couples retreat

Beautiful hotel and very friendly staff. Hetro couple felt very welcome and room was clean , nice king size bed but firm mattress. Cleaned and towels changed every day, would like to have tea making facilities but not a big issue. Staff always great to recommend restaurants and local sites. To cold to use outdoor pool but would be perfect when weather warms up. Metro links got us everywhere we wanted to go. We would recommend this hotel too everyone single or couples!

Great Hotel

Don't be worried if you booked this hotel not realising its aimed at the LBGT community. My husband and I stayed albeit out of season and really enjoyed our stay. Wouldn't recommend for friends or family travelling together - as most of the reviews say the bathroom facilities are not private.

Post-Christmas Break in the Sun

This break, our second or third at the Two by Axel, was our 'real' Christmas present, with five lovely sun-filled days in Barcelona. The hotel made the holiday for us, we were warmly greeted by Marisol and David and both remembered us from our previous trip. A delightful pair, such fun too. We were upgraded to a Premier room, with a delightful view onto the Carrer Calabria. If you take the elevator/lift to the top floor, you will find a beautiful sun-deck with a small swimming pool. In summer, there is an open-air bar. Even in winter, it was pleasant enough to sit out and soak up some sunshine. Lovely. (If you are staying at the Two by Axel, you can get the Axel Card at Reception and this will enable you to use the Spa at the other Axel Hotel in BCN and you can also visit the rooftop SkyBar there too!) Each day the room was cleaned, the mini-bar was restocked and the cleaning staff were just meticulous and chatty, even if I only have broken Spanish. I must mention that on the Sunday morning, we sprang for breakfast in the hotel, a delicious buffet that set us up for the day and saved us having to hunt for coffee shop on a Sunday morning, well worth it! Again the catering staff totally got that we were on holiday, we want a leisurely breakfast in peace and quiet, and they supplied us with additional coffees as needed - brilliant. Checking out was a pleasure... I had overslept and it was just on midday when I descended from the room, and David greeted with in English with a cheery morning and he broke into laughter as I checked my watch feigning shock. When the front staff of a hotel are able to joke in English, you know they are completely professional and capable of handling any issue that might arise and they do so with a smile, that's a class service! I'm very happy to recommend the Two by Axel. It is handy to get to the Two by Axel Hotel from BCN airport by AeroBus (get off at Urgell and walk back to Carrer Calabria) and the out-going bus to the airport can be taken nearby (reception will supply you with tips). At the top of the Carrer Calabria, you will see a metro stop, Rocafort, which is on the line to Plaza Catalunya (for La Rambla). Easy-peasy. Finally, can I mention that, as per the other Axel Hotels, the Two by Axel, is an adults-only 'heterofriendly' establishment. While primarily, the clientele are gay men or gay couples, a sizeable portion of the guests are heterosexual couples. It is a lovely tolerant atmosphere and very relaxing. 5/5 in my book!

Great, quiet hotel

This is a great hotel. Breakfast has plenty to offer and the hotel is quiet and clean, staff really friendly. I like the ethos of the hotel and its right next to Rocafort station, though University and Place de Catalunya is 20-30 mins stroll away
