“A very nice little hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2012

Great location. Wonderful reception/staff who are eager to please. Working room safe. Very good, free WiFi. Small but perfectly adequate room and bathroom--very comfortable and clean, safe and secure. Everything worked just right. Decent breakfast. Noise from reception echoes down the hall. This is not a posh hotel, but it is priced right for the traveller looking for quality for money, a great location, and a trouble-free experience. Nice restaurants and bars all around. I'd certainly return given the opportunity.

we stayed at the Hotel Axial for three nights during our trip to Florence, and I can't say enough about what an absolutely perfect hotel this was for a home base. The hotel is just a few steps away from the Duomo and the Uffizi gallery. Shopping and food surround the hotel in all directions.

Besides the location, we were immensely impressed with this little hotel itself and the staff. This is not a luxury hotel, but it is clean and comfortable and has many perks and some of the most helpful staff we have ever encountered. The hotel offers a reading room with two computers where you can gather and talk or read or do research on what to see and do in the city. There is also a small but lovely outdoor terrace with cozy seating when it's warm. The hotel offers an unbelievable service of an honor bar. There is a refrigerator stocked with water, soft drinks, champage, and wines that you help yourself to and just inform the front desk of what you have taken.

As for the hotel staff...perfect. We asked them several times for recommendations on places to eat, and every time the recommendation was completely spot on for what we wanted. They even assisted with calling establishments to make reservations for us.

Between the location, the staff, the comfort, and the ridiculously low price, this hotel is a no-brainer for visiting Florence!

Axial is in the PERFECT location - it isn't a fancy hotel at ALL but it was clean and convenient and that's all we wanted for Florence! My boyfriend and I stayed at the Axial in November of 2011, we give it a 5 due to location and cleanliness. It is literally down the block from Il Duomo - surrounded by awesome shopping and snack shops. Our travel agent recommended due to the location-but we weren't sure because of the non-glamorous pictures, but if you are looking for decent price - this is the place to be!
For dinner, we ventured a few blocks in either direction.
It is hard to find - but if you take a taxi from the train station (we came in from Rome) or airport, they know right where to go.

I stayed in the hotel last week with my wife and mom. At first, the hotel was a little hard to find. And when we were able to locate it, i was not so impressed with the entrance and hallway, which appeared to belong to an old apartment. But when we got inside, the rooms were clean and nice. I'd say its value for your money. Of course you could stay somewhere nicer, but those hotels turned out to be much more expensive. What was great about Axial was the location. It was literally in the middle of everything you wanted to see in Florence. Its located along one of the shopping streets, and almost beside the Duomo on one side and the Piaza dela Signora on the other. Its also walking distance to the train station. The staff were also friendly, and it was always nice chatting with Chiara

I stayed at the Hotel Axial in September 2011 with my husband and mother. As this was my mother's first trip to Italy (and Europe), I was very cautious when making our hotel bookings. After reading the reviews on tripadvisor, I chose Hotel Axial. The Hotel Axial was a fabulous choice! The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance to Duomo and Santa Maria Train Station. The staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms are simple, very clean and quite a good size. When booking, we requested a quiet room and were allocated a room facing into the hotel's courtyard. The room was very quiet and the bed was comfortable. If you arrive by train, take a taxi to the hotel because although it's not that far from the train station to the hotel, it can be difficult to pull your luggage over cobblestone roads when they have some weight in them! There is a small lift in the hotel so you don't have to carry your bags up the stairs. I thought this hotel represented good value for money. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Rooms facing inside to the courtyard are very quiet.
