Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

Friendly staff and funky hotel. Ideally located for the gay scene. Poor wifi connection and very dark decor didn't help the lack of working lights in the bathroom. Roof terrace and spa needs modernising and enhancing as could be a great space to chill. Would definitely stay again though.

This was a nice place to stay, within a few blocks of several gay bars and walking distance of many. Also within a few blocks is a great square with nice restaurants - and a farmers market on some days. The subway was just a few blocks away, which gives access to most all of Berlin.

We did not eat at the restaurant = but sometimes had a coffee-to-go from the bar. There were more interesting breakfast places across the street. Also, beware the ottub - it is really a
'luke warm" tub - too cold to stay in for long. The work out area is more than adequate for a pecs-perk-up, and the sauna was hot. Internet was so-so.

Room Tip: We had a junior suite - but the "second room" was only a portion of the bedroom that was s...

We booked the hotel well in advance and they made us feel very well and helped us get around Berlin.

We had the breakfast just once and it was very average; there are much nicer places to eat close to the Hotel.

The wifi was free, but kept falling out -- again, places near by offered free wifi that didn't drop out.

The facilities were great and very clean. The hotel is mainly in black, with a lot of mirrors. Very different to most hotels I've stayed in.

Would recommend, if they could improve the wifi and breakfast!

We have now stayed at his hotel for the 3rd time, and as always its a super hotel. Location is great, you can walk to shops, restaurants and the gay area. The rooms are not the biggest but always clean and fun with the bath inside the room. The breakfast is very good and all staff are very friendly. A big plus is the wellness area on the the top floor. A small gym, steam bath and sauna is available, and best of all is the outdoor yacuzzy !! tryy it !

We are a mature couple and my wife and I loved our 3 nights in the Axel Hotel.
The staff were just so happy, friendly and helpful. They made us feel so welcome and nothing was a problem for them in making our stay a memorable one. Stefan really helped us out with information and directions.
The rooms were so clean and very nicely presented and had everything you needed for a comfortable stay.
The hotel was only a few minutes to walk to train station, tour buses and shops.
We also ate in the restaurant and found the meals to be very nice and also staff so friendly and helpful.
We would be definitely returning to this hotel if we ever get back to Berlin, thoroughly recommended if you want good service.
Thankyou to all the staff for making our stay comfortable and welcoming.
Well Done Guys, Brilliant, couldnt fault anything

We stayed at Axel for 3 nights and had lots of fun the whole time. The room had a good view but narrow windows, but the bed was quite comfortable. The bathroom was split in two, with the shower/tub and the sink in the room, visible from the bed. Overall the room was very nice. On the 6th floor there is a hot tub, sauna, steam room, and gym overlooking the neighbourhood. These were all quite nice and usually busy. As well, we got massages offered within the hotel, and they were excellent. Reasonably priced and available from 1300 - 2300. The restaurant downstairs has good burgers and a good drinks selection. Around the hotel, the neighbourhood is very nice, and is very central to the gay district. About 5 minutes away (walking) is the U-Bahn, and it's about a block away from the shopping centre KaDeWe. It's tough NOT to have fun when you're staying here, and I would recommend it to any gay couple.

I have just returned from a thoroughly enjoyable 3 night stay at the Axel Berlin.

The hotel is perfectly placed for all of the gay bars, shops and facilities that Schoneburg has to offer.

On arrival the reception staff were pleasant and helpful. We were able to check in early, which was welcome after being up since 3am!

The room itself was clean and perfectly adequate for what we wanted. Yes the standard rooms are not massive but if this is an issue then consider booking a junior suite.

Our room had a lovely big double shower - it did however have a transparent glass side, which was fine for us but if you were travelling with a friend this may not be suitable.

We made use of the spa facilities and thought they were a nice addition. They were certainly welcome after a long day of sightseeing on foot. There are lockers but you have to get a key from reception and there is a €20 deposit for the key. This could be better advertised as we had to contact reception to find out more.

Bedding & towels were spotless and comfortable.

We didn't eat on site at Hamburger Mary's but we had the odd drink at the bar, which was pleasant but quite quiet although I am sure that this was because we were there mid week. The food we saw looked good.

The wifi was quick & reliable - handy for last minute research!!

We loved the Axel and would return without hesitation.
