Very central charming hotel

This hotel is small and entirely on the first floor of an old apartment building. The staff are very pleasant and attentive, the breakfast is quite good and the hotel has a general charm to it with nice oil paintings, a lovely lounge and a small garden. Unfortunately, it is somewhat let down by the state of the communal entrance hall and the stairwell which is dingy and generally offputting. Also, the bedspread cover was stained and this and the blankets looked as if they needed a wash; pillows a bit lumpy. Overall, however, a nice hotel and good value for money and especially liked fridge in the room.

Excellent position, nice staff and clean room.

Excellent position, nice staff and clean room. WiFi worked fine too. Normally I would go for more stars than 3 to get a gym and a cooked breakfast. Of course these were not available here. However this was a really good 3 star hotel. The central position was key to us enjoying the week in this beautiful city.

great location, superb staff

Overall very pleased with the hotel. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly at all times, suggesting restaurants, amenities etc. The location was fantastic; right in the heart of the town. Couldn't be better. It could be a little noisy at times, but our room was facing the street, so was to be expected. Other rooms will have been fine. Excellent spot to be able to come and go during the day.

Amazing location, well run, super friendly and helpful

You couldn't buy a better location at any price. Well-appointed room, very good breakfast, very clean. The staff was the best of our visit to Italy. If I have a quibble, it is that the Wifi connection was not as robust as I would like but that's pretty standard in Italian hotels in this range.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

A good nearby place to eat is the Bierro Centrale, approximately a bloc and a half from the Axial. It has good selection of food and drink at reasonable prices. Two of us had asparagus casserole, risoto with asparagus, a filet mignon with truffle sauce, and a couple glasses of wine that were all good portions and all great for only 48 Euro.

Great location

I had a single room which was relatively small compared to US hotels, however offered everything that I needed including a mini fridge. Hotel was within 2 blocks of duomo and about 10 minutes by foot from the train and bus station. It was very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was more than adequate. I would stay here again.

Great Location to Explore Florence

Stayed at the hotel September 8, 2011. Nice, clean, recently renovated, basic hotel with excellent location between the Duomo and Ufizzi. Staff was very helpful. Breakfast included, free wifi, computers, internet, and printer available in the internet room.

Make an internet reservation way ahead of time (like a month earlier) if you plan to visit Ufizzi.

Perfect Location, Wonderful Staff!

Hotel Axial is in a near-perfect location, mere blocks from the cathedra, Uffizi, and Accademia. It is also a block away from the Republic Plaza, a great place for people-watching. The staff were incredibly helpful. They booked museums for us, made dinner reservations, called taxis, and were very prompt in responding to emails. Ionela in particular was very helpful. The rooms themselves are a little tired and they open into a courtyard that was a bit loud at times. I believe that there is another hotel upstairs that must have had some children or something. Also, when people smoke in the courtyard the smoke can drift into rooms with open windows and the hallway. Overall, I would actually like to give this hotel 4.5 stars as it is almost perfect and I would highly recommend it to first-time Firenze travelers. There are some very minor issues but I will be staying here when I return.
