Hotel Axial

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Room was small but the location was great. The location was central to all the sites,

You can't beat the location here, steps from the Duomo. But the room was nothing to brag about. Plain and not quite clean. Breakfast selection and quality was weak too. On the up side the staff was friendly and helpful.

Easy walk from the train station. Great location. Friendly staff. Nice computer room and bar area. Nice large breakfast area and nice selection. Excellent price.

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.

Great value with ideal location. The staff is very pleasant and extremely helpful. Amenities were very comfortable, the bed was good, the room was clean, and breakfasts were basic European but good. Overall: Very Pleased and we will return.

Axial Hotel was great! The location is perfect, the hotel is spotless, every person who works there is unbelievably nice and helpful. We recommend it without hesitation!

Right at the foot of the Duomo. Comfortable and cozy. The staff were warm and welcoming.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

Can't beat the location for the price. Close to everything. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would stay here again.
