Gay & Lesbian Travel Guide

It's a Gay World After All: You're queer, you're here, and the world is now used to it!


Gay New York

The world's major cities have now grown accustomed to gay culture and with the visibility of openly gay personalities the urban world has gone from offering only a few underground gay venues, to opening gay-friendly hotspots, to having predominantly gay neighborhoods.

The idea of a gay hotel would also probably be unthinkable just two decades ago, but now there is even a new "straight-friendly" concept.

Cities such as Paris and Berlin have elected gay mayors and gay issues have now mostly become non-issues in countries such as Denmark and Spain.

Knowing that the gay population has a more disposable income and loves to travel, the world's most cosmopolitan cities aim to attract gay and lesbian visitors. So while as a gay person your first impulse may be to look for a gay-friendly restaurant or neighborhood, chances are you can be sure that you'll be welcomed pretty much anywhere in any major city.

UCityGuides includes a gay section in all of its featured cities, covering the bars, hotels, events, or any other major gay attraction each city has to offer. This is therefore also your ultimate guide to the gay urban world.

THE AXEL - Barcelona


As one of the world's top gay cities, it is only natural that Barcelona also has one of the world's best gay, straight-friendly hotels in the world.

Choose a single room, a double, or a superior room that is more spacious and with an adjoining pleasant sitting room. Even better is the exclusive suite that also includes a living room area equipped with a computer and internet access.

For meals, the dining room "El Comedor del Axel" serves a buffet breakfast and creative cuisine for lunch or dinner in an exclusive atmosphere.

The rooftop Sky Bar opens from May to September and is an inviting space for a cocktail sipped to the sounds of chill-out music, where you can also admire the spectacular view over the so-called "Gayxample" district. Before or after your drink, dive into the pool or Jacuzzi.

For a more active workout, head to the modern fitness studio, where you can work out on your own or following one of the programs designed by the hotel's specialists.

The Axel also offers relaxing massages to release your physical tensions. Choose the therapeutic body massage after a day of sightseeing, with slow, firm strokes and deep finger pressure along the skin and muscles. For stress relief, go for the shiatsu or choose the geothermal therapy that incorporates the use of hot and cold stones.

Complete your experience at the Axel by shopping at its boutique, a sophisticated space with selective fashions by cutting-edge designers.
