Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Hotel is located in a great area in Barcelona. Room was great! Thank you for the upgrade! Breakfast was alright. However, it was not ready at 7:30 AM as mentioned at check-in. And it was very under-staffed. One person ONLY! Gym was a bit tricky to use and the roof was closed on Mondays.

AVOID
This hotel is not what it used to be...the rooms are in desperate need of some renovations!!! Sky bar closed due to ¨covid¨yet bar in the ground floor is open makes no sense. The staff are hit or miss! Yesterday my partner didnt have the key to go into the hotel, the receptionist was extreemly rude to him for simply not having the key. We have stayed here numerous times as well as in axel Ibiza & gran canaria & madrid, by far Barcelona Axel has been a big disapointment this time.
