Overall Review

We really like the building where the Axel hotel Madrid is located. It is a good example of traditional architecture in Madrid and the building offers a contrast with the decoration used by the designers inside the hotel. The eclectic, avant-garde style may not please everybody, but the hotel is loyal to its brand values and decoration is an integral part of this. 

We specailly love the rooftop terrace. This hotel is not for families (only look at the “adults only” claim. It can be described as a gay-friendly hotel, but hetero couples are also welcome. 

We believe the hotel offers overall good value for money bearing in mind location and its design and features.
