    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Axial Florence

    Great location


    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


    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


    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!


    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


    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 :-)



    Wonderful.!! You must stay here. Reception were soooooooooooooooo insanely nice!! and the rooms were basic and very clean. Great shower!

    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!


    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


    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


    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


    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.

    ... All and all a very good trip and we caught a quick taxi to our hotel. Once cleaned up we headed out for lunch and walked the town. There are beautiful streets in Florence, narrow cobblestone streets with shops and markets. We even found a street with Gucci, Prada, Dolce, Burbury, Armani, Tiffany, etc... the list goes on, as did we because we can't afford that stuff! The weather was still stifling so we did our mid afternoon break and showered to feel better. Jenny was the nap ...

    ... shots I wasn't expecting. We found some cool leather jackets (I like one for me that Jen didn't like) and searched for Jens perfect leather jacket. On the way we had focaccia and coffee, admired statues and shopfronts above the bridge. I think we did well not to buy a jacket. We could have, but there was nothing truly special, apart from saying "I ...

    ... and when we got out it was time to eat. We’d seen a quiet little street perpendicular to the Uffizi, so we went back, found a table, and set into more pasta and pizza. My typical plan is to starve everyone before feeding them at the last possible minute before they are consumed either by hunger or rage, so that when they are fed it is the best thing they’ve ever had. My plan worked again, and lunch was delicious.

    ... to have anyone other than a native Florentine guide you around, which is odd but we were thankful for Elsa- her accent was a cross between an Italian mum and Julie Andrews! Everything is SO OLD. The house where Da Vinci started painting the Mona Lisa is within walking distance of everywhere. The main town hall is the building in which Gallileo invented the telescope, and as times moved on an epic bloke called Cosimo used that building as his palace, but his ...

    ... awful forty-five minute bus ride to a small town outside of Florence to a fabric warehouse. When we walked in I extremely overwhelmed with where to even begin to look for a fabric. I had to start somewhere, so I just started digging. I found faux leather, colorful patterns, mesh, lace, but nothing was jumping out at me. I finally started digging deep when I came across this beautiful floral pattern that was popping with every single one ...
