Axel Hotels is the first hotel chain aimed at the gay community. Each Axel Hotel is a liberal and tolerant place where everyone is welcome irrespective of their sexual orientation. We welcome, respect and value anyone who comes here without prejudice.
MyGayGetaway.com has been in love with the Axel brand since its inception. We have followed the journey of the brand since its first hotel in Barcelona (currently there are now 2) with new properties in Berlin, the Canary Islands, Ibiza, Madrid, Miami Beach and more.
We love their CEO and his vision for the brand. This is a hotel brand FOR THE GAY COMMUNITY although all are welcome. And they do not shy away from the gay traveler. Their marketing is very bold as it is one of the very first brands to use LGBT individuals in almost all of their online and print images. It is a brand who knows the LGBT traveler.
MyGayGetaway.com employees and VIP clients will always stay in Axel Hotels. We love them! And we love their product!
“One of the nicest hotels i have ever stayed it, just amazing and really recommended” -Idan, lIsrael
“Quality service amazing. the staff are definitely guest oriented. The room is very big with excellent quality of equipment. One point of improvement regarding the hours of room cleanliness a bite too late around 5.30 PM, it should be done earlier particularly when you come back to the hotel after a full day of city visit. I highly recommend this hotel.” -Vincent, Poland

“The hotel is excellent. Everything was very nice. I had a big room and even though it had a balcony to the street I could not hear the traffic. The room was very clean. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. The breakfast was the best I have ever had at a hotel and the roof top bar is a nice place to relax at night. I would definately like to come back in the spring or summer.” -Thomas, Denmark

“In the restaurant, the breakfast was adequate! My room was the one I wish to have and the staff bent over backwards to make my stay comfortable and were very attentive.
