This LGBT – and hetero-friendly – hotel is located in the heart of Madrid, close to the central Plaza Mayor and literary Barrio de Las Letras. The über-stylish hotel brings a big dose of quirky glamour to the capital; the fun decor is inspired by La Movida Madrileña, the hedonistic countercultural movement that swept Madrid during the late 70s and 80s. Choose double rooms, or one of the hotel’s swanky suites if you want to treat yourself. Relax after a day of sightseeing at Axel’s Sky Bar, its rooftop bar and pool being a perfect retreat in the heart of the city.
