    The location is great - near shopping streets, good restaurants and tourist sights. The staff, especially Wim at the front desk, were very helpful. The rooms were recently renovated and are very comfortable.

    The renovations were not complete so facilities like the spa, gym and roof terrace were not ready yet. Also, due to ongoing renovations it was quite noisy from 9am till about 6pm... not great to wake up to drilling and hammering.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    the front desk staff were very helpful

    the lack of information about ongoing construction at the hotel and the lack of access to pool, roof bar, and the gym which are advertised as reasons to stay at this hotel... no offer to compensate either with breakfast or other supplement... jack hammers started at 8:00 and 8:30... we were given a room on the 4th floor right under the constructions... workmen were in the hallways at 7:30... trash containers in front of the hotel... I could go on and on...

    Personel is superb

    It wasn't totally finished, so there was some noise in the morning from the work and all special things, like the swimming pool, the roofbar etc. weren't open. Will be back to see how it is in the end though!

  • Single

    Location of this hotel is the only redeeming feature.

    This hotel is still under construction with many of the hotel facilities not working i.e. the elevator, the gym, air-conditioning, roof top bar. The hotel was covered in dust and the noise of drilling was unbearable. I was supposed to stay 4 days but checked out the first thing next morning and was charged the rate for a fully functional hotel. I was not informed that the hotel was under construction when I booked, and no explanation when I checked in.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Very nice facility wit great amenities. Rate was very good too. Buffet breakfast was good and included in rate. Also, gym and spa are very nice for a hotel.

    Staff needs to be better. Understaffed at check-in and WiFI reception was very poor.

    Funny experience there being hetro.

    Spa water was cold.

    Cleanliness of the rooms, and areas other than the bathrooms in the reception floor.

    Wifi was very very slow. Eating area was not to par to the hotel. Bathrooms in reception area were constantly dirty.

    Wifi doesn't work in the room, made 3 complaints, unfriendly staff, the hotel management just want you to pay, shut up and leave as quickly as possible

    My lover and I experienced Axel Hotel 4 years ago and it was great. The hotel has recently being extended: the room I got was smaller (price was cheaper too) but still excellent: a perfect place!

  • Couple

    Well designed, comfortable and good-sized room in new wing. The hotel had been upgraded since our previous visit and a great job has been done. Exceptionally clean room. Enjoyed the Sky Bar and being able to swim after sightseeing on hot days.

    Be great to have free access to WiFi as it gets costly over several days - most hotels that we have stayed in offer free WiFi in public areas allowing one to quickly check mails/travel info; the free access to PCs in the business area was essentially always busy. Opening the Sky Bar area to nonresident guests can potentially make the pool area quite congested.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    The location is very good. Nice looking place. Very pleasant. Breakfast is very good an well organized, so well worth it . Ricardo at the front desk is especially very friendly and accommodating. I have been here before and will return again.

    They seem too casual about late checking in.

  • Single
    4.2

    Gay hotel which states to be "heterofriendly". The only good thing about it is the location and lots of nice guys staying there.

    Maybe once ago very nice hotel but unfortunately not anymore due to bad management. Hotel looks a little tired and 'luxury' obviously not the word to describe it. Completely disappointed with torn towels in my room and rude staff (hotel general manager?!) which instead of apologies stated I torn it on purpose to get the discount. Well. Should I say more?

  • Single
    4.6

    The receptionists are very attentive, specially the Portuguese guy.

    Air-conditioning not properly working, small bathroom, rooms with dark curtains.

    The location of the Hotel was amazing, just in the middle of the action. Staff very friendly and knowledgeble about the area and best places to visit.Will definatly go back again to this hotel.

    We didnt like the fact that we had to pay to use the Jacuzi and Sauna. But didnt care to use them honestly.

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    Very centrally located. The terrace is nice

    There is noone to carry your luggage when you reach to the hotel. The people at the reception are also the maintenance personel.
