I've been a fan of Axel for years, this is probably my 5th or 6th stay here. It's my go-to for Barcelona. However, I just felt this time around things are starting to feel a bit 'tatty'. The wobbly toilet, the blind on the window that doesn't work, the very outdated health spa details in the hotel manual, the room service tray that was falling to bits...just silly things, little things that made me wonder if they were starting to cut corners.
I'll always hold the Axel in a special place in my heart, but if opting for the Premium suite is going to deliver me all of the above, then competition like the "W" will start becoming options in my next trip.
Come on Axel, pull your socks up!! Remember the amazing boutique hotel you were.
