Fodor's Review

Billed as Latin America's first gay hotel, the Axel Hotel Buenos Aires is modeled after the successful original hotel in Barcelona. The new building combines glass, wood, and water to an impressive effect, with lots of open spaces and fresh air. The floors of the common areas are lined with Mac computers and a colorful mosaic tiling, a nod to the rainbow pride flag. The rooms are slick, modern, and bright, and some equipped with hydro-massage tubs and leather-lined closets. The Axel also has what must be Buenos Aires' first transparent elevated pool, located on the top floor, and visible from all points below. Although the clientele and staff are predominantly homosexual men, the hotel vehemently promotes itself as "hetero-friendly."
