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.

Good hotel in a great location

The room was very nice. More space the a lot of the hotels we stayed in. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Wi-Fi in room was a big plus. The location was perfect; short walk to everything. Nice breakfast... with eggs. We really liked this hotel and would stay here again. Highly recommended.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Have the staff at the hotel direct you to the big market for shopping. Great deals on leather, etc. Best deals we found anywhere in Florence or Italy. Be sure to negotiate. Don't pay sticker price.

Ideal location, very clean & comfortable

Location couldnt be better, right in centre but quiet as room on central court yard. Town easy to walk round and hotel within easy walking distance of all main tourist attractions. Rooms very clean and comfortable with underfloor heating. Breakfast basic foods - rolls, croissants, cereals, but eat as much as you want. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very pleased with the hotel!

Great Place to Saty!

The Axial Hotel's location is perfect! You go out the entrance and you are right in the middle of everything. You return to the hotel, shut the door and it is quiet and peaceful. The Axial is spotless, pleasant, and has good service. They even have 2 computers with printers available for their guests to use with no charge. Breakfast is boring, but you kind of have to expect that in most hotels. Still, I would recommend the Axial to anyone going to Florence. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else when I return. I would especially recommend The Best of Tuscany Tour. Great!!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Ghibellini Restaurant has wonderful food. We had pizza one night and it was incredible! We went back for a full dinner another night and loved it. This is real Tuscan food at reasonable prices, and the restaurant is so cute inside.

couples getaway

really great location -- one block from the Duomo. The price was very reasonable. Staff was always available for help. Breakfast was ok. Room was small, but quite adequate. The walls were scuffed and the woodwork had prints,etc so seemed like some extra cleaning could be used. The overwhelming negative for us was having a room on the street side. The noise was truly awful, even though we could close our window. We would go back only if we could have an interior room.
