      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Axial Florence

      Great location

      from

      Originally we booked for Hotel Maxim, at our arrival we found the hotel was split in two, the better part was now called Hotel Axial.

      Despite some minor critique we had a great stay (4 nights) in this hotel, which is extremely well located and has a very friendly and helpfull staff. The breakfast is OK, rooms etc. are clean and not too small.

      Our (minor) point of critique is the noise from the other guests, which is amplified by the tiles on the floor instead of absorbed. Also the lockings on the door caused noise, because people had to use much force to close the doors of their rooms.

      Despite this minor inconvenience, we had a great stay.

      Excellent Choice in Florence

      from

      We stayed two nights at the Hotel Axial in Florence in September. It is a sister hotel to the Hotel Maxim, which is where we had actually booked, but were upgraded upon arrival. They share the same building, just different floors. The Hotel Axial and its staff leave nothing to be desired for a visit to Florence. The location is absolutely ideal --- easy walking to all the major sites, restaurants, shopping, etc. The hotel itself is lovely --- not overly plush, but very comfortable, with excellent services and a delightful, helpful staff who made he stay perfect. Breakfast was well done, and the hotel includes a lovely interior courtyard for a break from the enormous crowds just outside (it as a perfect spot to share a bottle of wine and snack with friends.) Free internet, wine tastings, etc., make this an excellent choice. Having a safe in the room was a plus, too. We'd definitely choose to go back if we are in Florence again. Couldn't have found a better location, facility (affordable and comfortable) or staff.

      Location, Comfort and Value

      from

      This recently renovated hotel is in a prime location between the Plaza Republicca and the Duomo. From here, all the major sites are within walking distance. Plenty of restaurants and shopping are also nearby. Rooms are spotless, comfortable and modern. Owner and staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included and had a good variety of tasty food to choose from. Hotel has a pension type of arrangement, located on the first (second floor aka US standard) of a building containing shops and another hotel on the third floor. Therefore, don't expect great views and don't let the rather barren hallway leading to the hotel concern you, it is very pleasant inside.

      Excellent, helpful staff!

      from

      We had a great stay in Florence at the Axial Hotel. The location was fantastic - it is between the Duomo and the Ponte Veccio. The rooms were modest but clean and everything was in good working order. The staff (especially Ione) were very helpful and extremely pleasant. Finally, the rates were very reasonable given all of the above. We would definitely stay there again if we return to Florence.

      Excellent rapport qualité/prix

      from

      Hôtel simple et confortable avec des chambres spacieuses et des sanitaires impeccables

      Accueil courtois et très professionnel

      Le personnel parle un excellent français

      Seul le petit déjeuner est un peu rustique.

      Je recommande :-)

      Fantastico!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      from

      Yummo breakfast included (just breads, jams, cereal, fruit, but worth it.) Free internet!! and great location. Really a fab find, we were thrilled with the hotel.

      Stay Here!

      from

      Stay here! It was a great Hotel for a very small price The breakfast was better than other Italian breakfasts, more like continental not just coffee and a roll. The staff was very helpful, and it was a great location. Rooms have nice high ceilings, even though the rooms are small (typical of Italy), with nice bathrooms. Also have fee internet available 24 hrs a day. Couldn't have asked for a better hotel for the price. They also own Hotel Maxium in the same building.

      Pulito, accogliente e in una posizione favolosa

      from

      L'Hotel Axial è in una posizione eccellente per visitare anche a piedi il centro di Firenze. Le camere sono nuove, pulite, confortevoli e silenziose. Il personale è cortese, efficente e disponibile. Il titolare Nicola è gentilissimo e attento ad ogni esigenza dei suoi ospiti. Consiglio a tutti di alloggiare all'Axial, io mi sono trovata benissimo, non ve ne pentirete !!!!

      Fantastique Hôtel

      from

      Pour notre premier voyage à Florence, en l'occurence un week-end de trois jours, nous avons séjourné à l'hôtel axial qui nous a été recommandé par un ami. Nous avons très apprécié l'accueil des propriétaires de l'hotel, le charme, le confort et la taille des chambres. Le petit-déj est nickel. Nicolas le réceptionniste parle couramment français et vous donne des bonnes petites adresses pour manger et sortir dans la ville.

      Situé en plein coeur du centre historique c'est un bonheur d'arpenter cette ville magnifique.

      Je recommande vivement à quiquonque souhaitant découvrir cette ville de les contacter pour un séjour bon rapport qualité/prix. Ils ont un site internet pour plus d'infos.

      Charming, fresh, well-appointed and great location

      from

      We had booked a double room at the Hotel Maxim in the same building, but were told we were being placed in their new Hotel Axial downstairs when we arrived. It's a lovely old building with a fresh and modern decor inside the hotel. Our room was large and appealing, with a comfortable-sized modern bathroom, and plenty of room for our luggage to be out from underfoot. For 110E per night we also had a nice continental breakfast in an immaculate and cheery dining area , and were within a stones throw of both the Duomo and the Uffizi gallery. The family/owners have clearly taken a lot of time and care in creating this little gem. After a hot day of sightseeing, it was a pleasure to come back to this little bit of luxury. Internet is free, and there is an elevator.

      This morning we took a high speed train to the city of Florence. Our room was not the best in this town, very thin walls, small room and some crazy contraption they called a hair dryer that really didn't work. We were most impressed by the size of the douma. I had read April Plot, a book that described life and politics in that town from the time …

      Gill we walked through the leather market area and could smell the leather from all the handbags, jackets, belts etc. No sandals that I could see. Scarves are hanging on every other stall and our first, and only so far, purchase was a pink scarf for Paige! We also looked over the aprons with David on them and decided we could definitely give them a miss!

      ... outer walling is coloured in a mosaic pattern. The cathedral only opens at 1.30pm on Sunday and the queue stretched around half of the building. So we ate some lunch while we waited. Then no queue at all! Inside is expansive. And also quite bare. Not much to look at, until you reach the dome. The dome was built based on a design by Filippo Brunelleschi, with 2 domes sat on top of each other, 91m tall and 45.5m wide. The inside of the dome was painted by Michaelangelo. ...

      A Great Last Day In Florence

      ... our visit for today. There are five different sites to visit including the Duomo museum which is closed for renovations until the fall of 2015. Susan was sorry to miss the museum. Our "Firenza Card" covered the Duomo sites. The regular price for a ticket to all the Duomo sites is only 10 Es, which is a great deal. With literally thousands of visitors per hour the revenue must be staggering.

      We entered the cathedral after a short wait. Being modest people ...

      ... than one campsite with this name,.. and we finished up in Tavernalle, 30 Klms south of Firenze and dangerously low on fuel. With our hearts in our mouths we finally found a fuel station and fuelled up (at 1.71 euros per litre). We were just glad to get it,.. at any price. We wound our way into Firenze (finally) and found the campsite. We have stayed there on 2 previous occasions and loved it. Just 2 Klms out of the heart of Firenze,.. it is sooo central. We drove in and ...
