I recently had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Axial in Florence. After 3 nights in Rome at your typical shabby European hotel accomidations, we went to Florence and stayed at Hotel Axial which had a large, modern room with Air Conditioning, private bath, and all the ammenities you'd expect from a good hotel. The front desk was polite, professional, and very helpful in booking tickets to the uffizi for us. The hotel itself is LITERALLY 1 minute's walk to the duomo, uffizi gallery, and all the action in florence. When you exit the hotel's door, you're on a bustling pedestrian street where all the action is taking place. Though the street was quite busy (no cars allowed though), the hotel itself was extremely quiet... it was amazing that it could be so loud and bustling just outside the door, though you hear none of it from your room.... If you go to Florence, do yourself a favor and STAY AT HOTEL AXIAL!!! I guarantee you WILL NOT be dissapointed!!!!!

I loved everything about this hotel:
Great location.
Great service.
Great rooms.

Previous to this hotel, I stayed in a 4 star hotel in rome and this 3 star hotel was SO MUCH better, I was pleasantly surprised and it deserves a much higher rank.
I got absolutely nothing bad to say about this hotel (except maybe the breakfast could use some improvement, but thats trivial).

In conclusion - GREAT HOTEL!
Highly recommended!

My 20 year old son and I recently returned from a 2 week holiday to Italy. We spent 3 nights at the Hotel Axial in Florence and highly recommend it. While it was one of the least expensive hotels we stayed in (due to their Internet special of 3 nights for the cost of 2), it was also one of the very best. The rooms are spacious and clean. Our room had a lovely view of a small interior courtyard. Even though the hotel location is in the centre of Florence, the only "noise" we heard were the lovely sounds of the nearby Duomo (cathedral) bells. In addition, the hotel's central location provides easy access to the city's beautiful streets, vibrant street life, restaurants and museums. The hotel staff were wonderful - helpful and very understanding with all of our requests. The breakfast buffet was a good value, and the free internet access (with 2 available computers) was something we did not encounter in any other hotels that we stayed in. We would absolutely stay in this hotel again when we return to Italy and recommend it to anyone!

Hotel Axial, one block from Florence's famous Duomo, the cathedral, is the perfect location. Walking distance from the train station and from many car rental places along Borgnissanti. I can't imagine going anywhere within the city other than on foot; everything is so close, and the hotel is central.
Single room in July was exceptionally cheap, with breakfast. The staff also speak English and French and are very friendly. Room was modern, cool, very clean and very quiet. Excellent value.

I cannot tell you how helpful this hotel was! First of all, we would be finding hostels (my friend and I are college students,) but this three-star hotel came down to the price of a one-star in August, and we found a great deal. However, I would probably spend more anyway to be at Axial, as it is next to the Duomo in Florence, and a two minute walk from Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, the river, etc. The staff was very helpful and accommodating, and the rooms very clean. I requested a room facing the courtyard as to be more quiet, and I would recommend this--one night we even brought dinner to eat in this small inner courtyard. It is difficult to find computer access at hotels in Europe, but Axial has two computers in a library room that is quite convenient. Breakfast included, good maps available, etc. Would recommend to my parents and friends.

My wife and I were very pleased with Hotel Axial, which began with making reservations online. The location is perfect - in the heart of everything. The room was very nice - not a palace, but everything you need and enough space to be very comfortable. The breakfast is the only thing we'd rate good, not excellent, but not a deal breaker. Best of all, the staff was very friendly and helpful with every question or recommendation we asked. When considering the cost of our room was considerably less than other choices, we were very satisfied.
