“Great Service, Clean rooms and better quality the expected for the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

Had one night in Florenze, and the peobple at Axial was helpful to an extent usual in the best of hotels. It is perfectly placed just by the Cathedral, everything within walking distance, and is budget hotel with seldom high quality.

You get a central, clean and large enough room, perfect service and peace in the midst of town. And this for a price we could only celebrate. Upon arrival we got a bottle of prosecco to our room, perfectly cold for only 11E.

Looking for a cheap and central place to stay, I strongly recomend teh Axial!

Axial is in the perfect location to all the must-see sites! The staff is very friendly and made great recommendations for restaurants that suited our needs. The rooms were clean and it was nice having free wi-fi in the room (believe me, that's not a standard in Italy). The breakfast included wasn't extraordinary, but it was just what we needed to get our day started, and honestly it was more than we had expected given that it is a 3 star hotel. Despite the it's central location, you get a good night's sleep!

The location could not be better, just a very short walk to all the main sights in Florence: the Duomo, the Uffizi museum, Palazzo Vecchio, Ponte Vecchio, and the Gallery of the Academy. This is also the shopping district with many fine stores. Many good restaurants are also only a few steps away. The rooms in the hotel were very clean, modern, and comfortable, with a small refrigerator. Hot water plentiful, shower had adequate room with a shower door, bathroom clean with all standard amenities, towels clean. Internet access provided. They even have a courtyard for the smokers. The breakfast offered many selections. The staff was very, very helpful in arranging tickets for the museums and in helping with other travel problems. The staff could not have been better. The train station is a short taxi ride to the hotel. The hotel is on a beautiful, wide street limited to only pedestrians, but the taxis are allowed to drop you off and pick you up right at the door of the hotel. The hotel is not on the ground floor (this is a shopping district with many fine stores), it is on the second floor of the building. You have to look hard for the entrance (next to the Disney store), which looks like an entrance for an apartment. Once inside, on the ground floor, do not be put off by the hallway, there is a small elevator at the end of the hallway to take you to the lobby for the hotel, one floor up. A spacious stairway is next to the elevator. Only negative factor is that the reception desk closes around midnight or 1 a.m., so there is no one at the reception desk in the very early morning hours. We had a wonderful stay at this hotel.

Literally steps from the Duomo: unbeatable location. Rooms are very nice, clean, large, comfortable, good beds and bath appointments; and they're very quiet, surprisingly so for a small hotel right by the Duomo. Staff is very helpful and even got us advance ticket reservations for the Uffizi on short notice. Highly recommended.

The Axial Hotel is ideally located between the Uffizi Gallery and the Duomo on a pedestrian street. Taxis are allowed, however. Train station is within walking distance but perhaps not with lots of luggage. Ride to the hotel was 10 euros. Hotel is on the first floor (European one flight up) but there is a small elevator. There is another 2* hotel on the second floor. Staff is wonderful, accommodating and English speaking. Hotel is reasonably priced for the area. Florence is not an inexpensive destination. Room was large and very clean. A/C, an in room safe and a mini-fridge. We did not find it noisy but occasionally you could hear water running in the next room. Included breakfast was typical Italian continental and more than satisfying. The coffee is self-service out of a machine but tastes fine. Free wifi which worked perfectly. There is also an internet room with two computers. An outdoor patio for smokers. Additionally there is an honor bar in the public area. You can help yourself to water, soda, etc. and just let the desk know. The only minor drawback was the lack of a shower enclosure/tub- a hanging shower curtain only. However, if one is careful water doesn't spray all over and there is good water pressure. Also the T.V. in the room is very small but who comes to Florence to watch T.V? This hotel has lots of charm and we would most definitely stay again if ever we are lucky enough to return to beautiful Firenze.

The location of this hotel was great for sight seeing even though it is in the center of Florence and a busy area! You won't hear the street noise which is nice. The breakfast was fine and was nice to have. The rooms were pretty basic and the bed was ok as well. For the price the hotel worked great--don't expect a 5 star hotel but the staff are very nice, the hotel is clean and in a great location.

I stayed at Hotel Axial two years ago, and gladly rebooked for my most recent trip. I wasn't disappointed. I like this small boutique hotel! It is perfectly located -- between the Duomo of Santa Maria on one end of Via dei Calzaiuoli, and the Uffizi Gallery and City Hall, at the other end. The hotel was recently renovated, so the rooms and furnishing are fairly new and in great shape.

I also enjoyed the friendliness of the staff there, the cleanliness of the common spaces, and the nice breakfast.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Via dei Calzaiuoli is the main street in that section of Florence; and largely pedestrian -- very fe...
