We had four nights at this hotel and it was great. The location was perfect for everything we wanted to see and do. Only about 50 metres from the Duomo and walking distance to the train station. The hotel room was really roomy and had a great bathroom. The hotel staff have been great and friendly. Would definitely come and stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Get a room that looks out onto the courtyard.. it is nice and quiet

I got a single room and it was quite small but super clean. The staff was very nice and friendly. You are literally a block from duomo. The location here is excellent. You can walk to uffizi in 5 minutes and ponte vecchio in 10. 15 minute walk to Santa Maria Novella. There are shops, restaurants, cafes all in this area. It is basically the center of the city center.
There is a nice garden/patio at the hotel, breakfast is included (fruits, cereal, coffee, toast).
Totally inexpensive price for the end of July when there is a lot of tourism in Florence.

Room Tip: My single room was small but the doubles looked bigger/nicer. It did not bother me as I was not in m...

The hotel is in the middle of all points of interest, great deal ( price x location).
Room - Small but clean, comfortable all you need for few days since you barely stay indoors when you are in Florence
Breakfast: Ok, not lots of options and no fresh fruits. However, it is a good deal for the price offered
Location: All the best, in the eye of the hurricane ;-)
Staff: Very friendly and helpfull
Strongly recomend!

Room Tip: If you expect a spacious room and luxous hotel this is not the pick. If you want a comfortable bed i...

Location of hotel is excellent. If you are driving to the hotel I would recommend updating your gps and calling the hotel prior to your arrival for road closure updates. The hotel has valet service for your car which was very nice. It's a very busy location with a lot of shops and restaurants. Walking distance to everything. Rooms are clean, and spacious. Free wifi with good connection. The free breakfast was ok, very little to chose from. The staff was extremely friendly, we would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for a weekend city break in early July. Absolutely amazed that although this hotel is situated on one of the main streets and only 50 metres from the Doumo and all the tourist madness, once you get inside, you are in an oasis of calm! Loved it - pretty basic accommodation but nothing to complain about for city centre stuff. All very clean, fluffy white towels and more than adequate continental breakfast. Honesty bar and fantastically helpful staff complete the picture. What's not to like!

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.
