“Loved this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights, and absolutely loved it. The location was fantastic, and the hotel itself was darling. The staff was also extremely friendly. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in Florence. There was also breakfast and free wifi. The air conditioning was just ok.

If you're staying in Florence to see the art and architecture etc, the location of this hotel is hard to beat. Its entrance door is directly off the main street, about 150 yards from the Duomo west front. Our room was quiet (it looked over the quiet street at the rear), and clean and comfortable. The breakfast was a standard cold continental buffet. There is a self service bar and seating area, and they have plastic cups available if you've bought your own wine etc from the numerous shops around the city. Hotels in Florence are generally quite expensive, so given the location of this one, we found the price to be pretty reasonable.

This hotel is extremely well located, between Duomo and Piazza della Signoria. The restaurant La Republica, close to it, is perfect!! The breakfast needs improvement. It's too poor. The staff is very nice and helps you in reservations you may need.

The Axial turned out to be the perfect place for my 5 days in Florence. A small, family-run hotel in a fantastic location, my room at the Axial was immaculately clean, air-conditioned and had a private bath. The family is lovely and very helpful, as were the other employees. Breakfast was generous and freshly prepared. The location, one block from the Duomo, was no more than a ten minute walk from any museum or site I wanted to visit. I would certainly stay there again on any future visit to Florence.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet location.

After reading countless hotel reviews, we chose Axial for a two night stay in August 2013. It was a great value - clean, cozy, good location, and good breakfast. We stayed in a double room, and it was fine. I would stay here again.

We spent 3 nights here and are very glad that we selected it. This is a small hotel but was recently renovated. The breakfast was plentiful and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was stylish and clean and the bed was very comfortable. It was close walking distance to all of the sights that we wanted to see.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are on one floor and most are away from the street and very quiet.

This hotel is in a prime location in Florence. Right in the middle of the Florence city centre. The ambience of the room as well as the all of hotel is just fantastic. Very arty and boutique. Room was large, quiet and comfortable. Staff were very friendly. Would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend!
