“Awesome place for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

Hotel Axial was clean and comfortable in an awesome location just steps from the duomo and so many other sights. We had to stay in their sister hotel, Hotel Maxim, for one night and it was not as nice and I would not stay there again (even though the young woman at the front was lovely). Hotel Axial though was much more pleasing and the front staff is very nice and accommodating. Not that I travel to Florence often, but I will definitely be looking up this hotel to stay at again. This is not a 4-star hotel, but I think for the price it fits the bill exactly. I'm always looking for clean, comfortable, friendly, with a good location at a reasonable rate and this was it!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back off the main street- the front door/rooms are right on a main, noisy stre...

The hotel is located 2 minutes to the main Duomo and on the other hand - 2 min to Old Palace and Uffizzi gallery. The room is quite big, simple and comfortable, all necessities are provided.
Breakfast are regular for Italy, nothing special. WiFi is available in the room.

This was just the spot we were looking for. Excellent location. Easy walk to any sights, and train station. Front desk was very sweet and so helpful. Breakfast was adequate.
Room was easy to find and centrally located for our wanderings. I believed it is a wonderful value for the money.

Room temperatures were really toasty while outside was sub-zero, even withthese high ceilings! greta!

so......shame about the "breakfast" which is "Italian Formula Hotel" style where the croissants are long-life and the juices are diluted concentrate and the coffee is self-service from a machine (so not even a decent capuccino first thing - which doesn't really matter as within two minutes walk there is plenty of choice.....

I do not know how to rate this hotel. It is a 5 star location--2 minutes from the Duomo on the street leading to Piazza Signoria 5 minutes away. The staff was very helpful with left luggage, early check in etc. The room is tiny by any standard and in need of updating (peeling paint and chipped walls). Definitely cramped for more than 1 person.It had a great little terrace to sit out at night and a self service refreshment bar as well as a lounge room with computer terminals and good wireless.The price was unbeatable and an easy 10 minute walk from train station. I would stay here again if I was only going to be 1-2 nights just because of the location. More than that I would have to stay elsewhere

This hotel has an excellent location, close to all major sights. The staff is very friendly and helped us book tickets for the Uffici. Breakfast was very good . The only drawback was that the room was a little noisy and we could hear people talking at night on the street below.

Room Tip: Try to book a room that doesn't face the street.

Fantastic location - right in the centre so we could walk everywhere - lovely staff who couldn't have been more helpful, a quiet and comfortable room facing the courtyard, more than adequate continental breakfast and the honour bar was a real bonus with tea/coffee on tap. The Hotel Axial made an excellent base for a long weekend in Florence. I'd definitely stay there again.
