We stayed for two nights and was very happy with this hotel - we thought it really good value. As other reviewers have said it is very central and I did wonder slightly about noise but we needn't have. The hotel is in a very old building but that makes for cool comfortable spacious rooms with old shuttered windows which... More

We just stayed two nights at Hotel Axial. Three rooms. Rooms were standard European size with high ceilings. Furnishings average. Bath fixtures mostly newer. Bedspread dated. Tile floors. Crisp sheets. A/C in rooms worked at 25 Celsius but shut off if you tried to put temperature lower. Noisy fan at high setting. Small fridge in each room. Good water pressure... More

I was here in June 2015. After getting through the hassle of rolling your heavy luggage over cobblestone pavements, you will reach the busy Piazza del Duomo square. Hotel Axial and Hotel Maxim are basically the same. Operated in the same building but on different floors. Hotel Axial is one floor above the wooden entrance; Hotel Maxim is three floors... More

I stayed here for two nights. I found the price for the location to be excellent. Only a ten minute walk from station and metres from the Duomo. The staff were helpful with a map and where to visit. Apart from a couple of maintenance issues in the room, they were very clean and quiet rooms.

You can't get a better location for the price - Axial is literally steps away from the Duomo. This meant I could pop across the road for 7.30 mass and experience the silent majesty of the building away from the ever-present crowds of Florence....a rare treat. The crowds were not my favourite part of Firenze, and the fact that Axial... More

A location to die for. Hotel Axial is at the heart of old Florence. Turn left, you are a minute's walk from the Duomo. Turn right, the Palazzio Vechio and Ufezzi Gallery is a 2 minute walk. Another minute takes you to the banks of the Arno and the Ponte Vecchio. All major attraction are within a mile radius of... More

This isn't necessarily a charming hotel, but it's good for the price - staff is friendly and helpful and the location is unbeatable. There are always a lot of people on the street outside (and I mean a LOT) so there is some noise. It didn't bother me but it bothered my dad. So it depends on how noise-sensitive you... More

We enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect. Easy walk to the train station as well as all major attractions and tourist spots. Also, noise was not a problem. The room did not offer a lot of "bells and whistles" - very basic - however it met our needs. The staff there is very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend and... More

We love the location on Calzaiuoli and decided to give Axial a try this time. Price was an important consideration. While the hotel entrance is on the street level, one needs to take the lift or the stairs up to the second floor to reach the front desk. The hallway off the street to reach the lift or stairs is...

I stayed with my wife at hotel Axial. The location of the hotel is the best in Firenze, staff very nice, no noise (except the church bells) and clean room. I especially appriciate that the staff let us use their lounge, internet and toilet after we checked out. Small things make a difference. The only thing which I would do... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
