They key to LGBT travel is to find a hotel that is gay-friendly, in a fantastic location, that won’t break the bank. But to truly make it an ultimate stay you want it to be a property that you’ll love, with spectacular amenities and customer service. In most major cities, finding all these requirements in on property can be a struggle; however, Alex Hotels have made the impossible, possible. With properties in Europe, including Berlin, Madrid, Ibiza, and Gran Canaria, plus two fantastic locations in Barcelona, Spain, Axel Hotels is the property of choice for LGBT travellers. They are focused on quality service, beautiful atmosphere, comfort, and value. What’s more is that Axel Hotels are the first major hotel chain that is gay friendly, and hetero-friendly.
There are two properties that service the city of Barcelona—one in the city center in the gay village, and the other close to the Mediterranean Sea—serve gay men of all ages, and attracts gays from all types, from bears and leather daddies, to muscle studs to athletic college guys and beyond.
The city center property, located in the gay Eixample part of Barcelona. It is conveniently located near gay bars and in a trendy area of Barcelona with universities, theatres, and ample restaurants. Reasonably priced, rooms are spacious with clean white sheets and premium bath products from around the globe. Upgrade to a suite and get a beautiful balcony overlooking the city, perfect for hosting evening cocktails with friends, especially on warm summer nights. Tech-savvy travellers will appreciate the free in-room WiFi (hello Grindr time!), and plugins built into the headboard (North American’s don’t forget to bring your power adapters).
After a long day of adventures around the city, relax with a glass of sangria or a classic strawberry mojito at their rooftop bar (closed on Sunday’s, like most shops and restaurants in Barcelona) or lounge at the rooftop pool. The gym never takes a vacation, and skipping your daily workout routine isn’t an option. Head to the full service gym to get your daily sweat.
The second Axel property in Barcelona, Two Hotel Barcelona, is near the bottom of Eixample closer to the Mediterranean Sea, old town, and gothic quarter. A more modern hotel and the recipient of several travel awards, Two Hotel Barcelona also has a featured rooftop bar and pool, amazing city views, a totally glass-encased lobby bar, and gorgeously decorated soundproof rooms. All rooms are equipped with the latest technologies and have full Bath Axel amenities.
