“Hotel Axial Florence, Italy A+”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2009

The hotel and staff were wonderful. This is one of the best locations in Florence and the staff is so helpful with museum reservations, their directions are the best, and they have very good recomendations about sights and food. My daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter have stayed at the Axial too and liked it very much.
The breakfast is good, the rooms are very clean, and it is on the major walking street in Florence. (no traffic noise)
This was my first trip to Italy and I went alone. The Axial helped to make this trip so easy for me, and I will be staying there again. I highly recommend the Hotel Axial.

If you're looking for luxury this is NOT the hotel for you...but if you want something clean, simple and in a GREAT location... Hotel Axial is perfect. The price can't be beat. To be honest, the rooms are pretty sterile. Basically no character whatsoever. But they're clean and have all the basic ammenities (nice shower, hair dryer, tv, nice breakfast, and FREE internet access!!!) We spent very little time inside our room (just to sleep and shower) so this was perfect for us. You can walk to all the major sights and there's a great Gelato place right across the street (Festival de Gelato). You really can't be in a better location. We would recommend this to anyone who's on a sightseeing trip - looking for location, location, location. But if you're looking for a romantic italian hideaway....you should look elsewhere.

I stayed in Hotel Axial for 4 nights with my mum. It is in easy walking distance from the station and in a central location. It's a small hotel with friendly staff and is spottlessly clean. The breakfast was what we expected, and the coffee machine was very good. I would highly recommend this hotel for a long weekend in Florence - brilliant value.

This hotel is in a great location. Just a block from the Duomo and a ten minute walk to the Uffizi or the Academia. It has been newly renovated and is very clean. The hotel staff is very helpful and will make reservations for you at local restaurants and sites. I highly recommend this hotel.

The hotel was just steps away from the Duomo and very close to the Uffizzi gallery, shops, and a walking distance to the train station. The staff was very warm and helpful esp Chiara.

Just returned from three nights at the Axial in Florence. This hotel is a great value and you can't beat the location. Turn left out the front door and you are a few steps from the Duormo, turn right and you are a few steps from the Uffizzzi. Turn the corner and you are in the Piazza del Rupublica. Rooms are clean and nice. Modern baths. Decent breakfast. Paid about $100/ night (note: dollars not Euros). Free wifi. Front desk staff was friendly and made dinner reservations for us each night. We would stay here again and again on our next trips to Florence.

We visited Florence from October 9th through 12th, and spent 3 nights at this hotel. Our selection was based in large part upon the reviews we read in Trip Advisor, and its location. We were extremely pleased with our choice. The location is superb - just a few minutes walk to all the big sites. The front street is a pedestrian thoroughfare so there is no noisy traffic, and the rear street is small and quiet. There is construction going on across the street from the entrance, but there was no obstruction to access, and the work took place during the day when we were out, so we hardly noticed it. The loudest noise we heard was the bells of the Duomo. The breakfast was satisfactory - consistent with what we expected, and fine to start the day. The breakfast room was very pleasant, very clean, and well attended by the staff. The courtryard was charming. The rooms were clean, all the mechanicals worked well, and the bed was comfortable, although a little too firm for us. The staff was extremely helpful. We dealt with Eliza and Ione at reception, and they could not have been nicer - giving us directions when asked, along with useful maps, and making wonderful restaurant suggestions, along with reliable reservations. This was our first trip to Italy, and we are very happy that we selected this hotel. We would definitely return there.
