BA (Closed Permanently) Formerly: Axel Hotel Buenos Aires

100% love it
GayCities Members report that BA has closed
Gay-centric hotel with eye candy staff and tier one service
The Connie Frances song, "Where the Boys Are" could have been written about the Axel Hotels, where they cater to gay men the way gay men deserve. The Cosmo bar is the perfect place to sip a cocktail grab a sandwich, or peruse the locals. Boasting showers big enough for two (or even three), this is a place worth experiencing yourself.

      Great eclectic ULTRA MODERN style hotel
      We stayed at the Axel a few months ago for 4 nights. IT is a great Ultra Modern design. The center of the building has glass tread stairs and elevators going 4 stories up with a glass bottom swimming pool as a roof. IT is really cool. The rooms are also ultra modern and kind of spartan, but fun. Our shower was a glass enclosed space and the shower came from the ceiling and drained through the floor. There were dividers that blocked off areas. Our room had balconies with shutter/walls that totally blocked the light when closed. Fitness room on the top floor and additional pool outside. The continental breakfast was well stocked and reasonable. The crowd was mixed during the week, but very friendly. Rooms were clean, staff was friendly. The area around the hotel was not a tourist area but eclectic and felt safe. Easily walkable. But watch out the do not believe in good sidewalks in Argentina.
