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.
