TWO Hotel Barcelona – a stay

Located within walking distance of most things Barcelona has to offer, TWO Hotel Barcelona by Axel could be the right place to stay if you are planning a trip to the city of Gaudi.

As in every hotel there is a ‘do not disturb’ sign and a ‘make up room’ sign. But Two Hotel Barcelona is not just any ordinary hotel, they have a third ‘please disturb’ sign. I wonder who would come knocking at the door…

The sky bar and terrace on the roof are the ideal place to soak up some sun or have a drink while relaxing in the pool.

When we arrived at the hotel the curtain was closed and in the morning we found out why. Our room faced a public garden, which luckily was closed during the night. We did discover however that if you want some privacy you have to keep the curtains closed…
