“Centrally located”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Hotel is within walking distance of all major sites. Quiet street with limited traffic. Hotel is not impressive based on the entrance; but it is very clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful in pointing out good restaurants and providing directions.

My husband and I spent 4 days in Florence at this hotel. Breakfast is included. The hotel is located right near the Duomo (just a couple blocks) and easy walking distance to Piazza della Signoria where there are street performers late into the night (all the restaurants there are very touristy...not recommended). It is also close to the best gelato place I ate at in Italy: Perche No!
The staff at Hotel Axial was very helpful with directions and recommendations, (including researching a couple of odd requests from us).

FYI: We thought it was a little closer to the central train station than it actually was, so I highly recommend getting a taxi.

The hotel is in the very center of florence and arriving by car is an adventure.
Room is clean and big enough for a short stay. Breakfast is sufficient. The beds are very hard - more than 2 or 3 nights I wouldn't recommend.
All sightseeing highlights are reached within minutes.

My mom and I had a great experience staying at the Hotel Axial in Florence. We loved Florence. It was our first trip to Europe, but we did our research and we were prepared for the "European standards" on rooms. The rooms at the Axial are larger than the rooms we stayed in when we were in London, Paris and Rome. The location is awesome. We were steps from the Duomo.

The hospitality we received from Benedetta "Bene" was excellent. Bene works at the front desk and made our stay so much better. She is so nice and helpful. She showed us the great places to eat, tour and shop. Bene also assisted us with the purchase of tickets to many of the major attractions and tours.

We were so sad when we had to leave Florence and Bene :). I will and have recommended the Axial to my friends and co-workers. If we ever make it to Florence again, I will definitely stay at the Axial.

Like Best: Excellent location, 5 minutes from the Florence Cathedral and all attractions in Florence. It comes with a public room area with 2 desktop computers with internet access (of course there is free WIFI) and a small library, plus a little garden to chill out (not past 9:45pm).
Like Least: The room is very basic and looks old, but clean. Breakfast is average.

The Axial is a three star hotel in a wonderful location in Florence. We chose it because of the great reviews we had read, but, at first sight, it was very disappointing. The entry is run down and not at all appealing. However, once we arrived on the second floor, the place was clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was OK. The best part of the experience was being so close to the Duomo. We realized that, in Europe, there is a big difference between a three star and four star hotel.
