Reviewed 15 July 2013

hotel is small ( only 14 rooms) but located very conveniently in the centre of Florence within walking distance to the Duomo & shopping areas. In fact all the attractions are within walking distance from hotel. So convenient for us to keep going back to the hotel to drop off our shopping bags, get a drink & shower ( it's very hot in summer) before going to the next attraction. The amenities are basic but sufficient. Room is surprisingly spacious with a double bed, writing desk , a small table & 4 chairs. Most hotel rooms in Europe are small & I've yet to find one that has 4 chairs in it! The negative side is on the TV which is a small, old fashioned hanging CRT TV & the bathroom which is tiny. The shower cubicle is just standing room for 1 adult. Continental breakfast is included in the room rate. It is not lavish but provides a good start for each day. The real gem in Hotel Axial is the staff. There is only 1 person manning the reception on a rotating shift. But everyone that we met have been very very helpful. We spent 4 nights in Florence & absolutely love the place.

Hotel Axial is a small hotel but within walking distance of many of the sights and museums of Florence as well as the train station. The hotel was clean, staff were friendly and the breakfast was more than ample.

We stayed here in March 2012. Hotel was in a great spot. Basic amenities, but cannot fault location. The only issue was the singing from the street sellers at night time. This would start at about 1am and continue until the police rocked up at around 6am. Most of the time it was just constant banging of instruments and signing, but it can get annoying. Locals hated it!!

Room Tip: we had a street facing room with a window. was noisy at night time, so might not suit everyone.

Had one night in Florenze, and the peobple at Axial was helpful to an extent usual in the best of hotels. It is perfectly placed just by the Cathedral, everything within walking distance, and is budget hotel with seldom high quality.

You get a central, clean and large enough room, perfect service and peace in the midst of town. And this for a price we could only celebrate. Upon arrival we got a bottle of prosecco to our room, perfectly cold for only 11E.

Looking for a cheap and central place to stay, I strongly recomend teh Axial!

Axial is in the perfect location to all the must-see sites! The staff is very friendly and made great recommendations for restaurants that suited our needs. The rooms were clean and it was nice having free wi-fi in the room (believe me, that's not a standard in Italy). The breakfast included wasn't extraordinary, but it was just what we needed to get our day started, and honestly it was more than we had expected given that it is a 3 star hotel. Despite the it's central location, you get a good night's sleep!

The location could not be better, just a very short walk to all the main sights in Florence: the Duomo, the Uffizi museum, Palazzo Vecchio, Ponte Vecchio, and the Gallery of the Academy. This is also the shopping district with many fine stores. Many good restaurants are also only a few steps away. The rooms in the hotel were very clean, modern, and comfortable, with a small refrigerator. Hot water plentiful, shower had adequate room with a shower door, bathroom clean with all standard amenities, towels clean. Internet access provided. They even have a courtyard for the smokers. The breakfast offered many selections. The staff was very, very helpful in arranging tickets for the museums and in helping with other travel problems. The staff could not have been better. The train station is a short taxi ride to the hotel. The hotel is on a beautiful, wide street limited to only pedestrians, but the taxis are allowed to drop you off and pick you up right at the door of the hotel. The hotel is not on the ground floor (this is a shopping district with many fine stores), it is on the second floor of the building. You have to look hard for the entrance (next to the Disney store), which looks like an entrance for an apartment. Once inside, on the ground floor, do not be put off by the hallway, there is a small elevator at the end of the hallway to take you to the lobby for the hotel, one floor up. A spacious stairway is next to the elevator. Only negative factor is that the reception desk closes around midnight or 1 a.m., so there is no one at the reception desk in the very early morning hours. We had a wonderful stay at this hotel.

Literally steps from the Duomo: unbeatable location. Rooms are very nice, clean, large, comfortable, good beds and bath appointments; and they're very quiet, surprisingly so for a small hotel right by the Duomo. Staff is very helpful and even got us advance ticket reservations for the Uffizi on short notice. Highly recommended.
