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, Madrid 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!
