Great location

Have stayed in this hotel many times, great staff in all areas, rooms are clean and beds comfortable. Only let down is the jacuzzi in the spa area which has not been working properly over my last 4 stays over a 2 year period which is really unacceptable.

Good location

Pros: Friendly helpful staff
Cons: The spa facilities need a little work especially the jacuzzi and a proper evening bar and restaurant offering..
Location: Ideal for night life and close to shopping.
The location was ideal for the gay pride weekend and the staff were helpful and pleasant. Some of the facilities were not quite up to the standard they have been in the past but overal it was still a pleasant stay.

Good standard and great location.

I have stayed in this hotel when in Berlin and always enjoy the facilities and location. Only down point this time was that the spa was not available due to recent fire. I was not given any information about this when checking in. In the circumstances I would have expected an apology and or some alternative such as a breakfast or dinner.

Dear Bill, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. I am sorry that we did not tell you upon check in that you cannot enjoy the facilities on 6th floor. As well I would like to add that as you have booked through Expedia they would have had the responsibility to give you the information before you arrive to the hotel. We will appreciate very much if you could write a complain about the lack of information directly to Expedia too! We hope you would like to give us another chance next year when the new spa will be open! Sincerely,

Axel Berlin a great stay

Had read the reviews so had some good and not so good expectations, however Axel exceeded them. Staff were nice and welcoming. Room was modern tho more wardrobe space would have been good. Restaurant breakfast food was really enjoyable. Spa area with sauna, Wet room and jacuzzi was excellent even tho there was some snow falling it was warm. Location is good with good bars and amenities. Will go back so hope the staff keep it up.

Nice trendy hotel

A tasteful, ultra modern hotel aimed at the gay market, though badged as 'hetero-friendly'. Almost all the walls are black, except for those that are mirrors, which can make finding your way around feel a little weird on the first day. Nice comfortable rooms with plenty of space and a huge walk in shower. However, beware that the shower is entirely housed in glass, so whoever you might share a room with can see you in the shower! Also, most of the artwork is rather homo-erotic. Very friendly English speaking reception staff and bar staff. I found that the bar on the ground floor was the perfect meeting place for a drink before heading out for the evening. Cross the road in front of the hotel and less than 5 minutes walk brings you to Wittemburg Platz with its U-Bahn station and the famous KaDeWe store. Rooftop spa is a nice place for an afternoon relax including the outdoor hot tub. However, beware, the floor can be extremely slippery with wet feet. There is a rooftop bar which would be a nice place to relax in the warmer summer months, however as I visited in January it was closed. Good, fast wifi thought the hotel. I'll definitely return. A nice place to stay, though it's just a tad too expensive for what it is.
