    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

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

    Accueil courtois et très professionnel

    Seul le petit déjeuner est un peu rustique.

    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.

These shops, however, much to Emma's unenjoyment, were all shiny shops...so whilst I crawled past each window, admiring the prettyness of their contents, Emma grumbled that she couldn't stand it and was going to sit down and wait for me...I don't think she was too impressed by my taking ...

We normally try to go to at least one Sunday mass in Florence, not only to hear mass but to see one of the cities prime tourist attractions away from all the tour groups, since they are not allowed inside during mass. This Sunday we were to find out would be quite ...

    I definitely will never grow up to be a chef, but I could still work with food. In fact, I actually have an interview on Wednesday with a food and beverage manager sooo wish me luck! I woke up one morning to an email to my parents telling me that I could possibly actually have a full time job in North Carolina when I graduate...what? This is happening already?

    The day was a write off. Karaoke, which I thought I would hate and almost bailed on, was one of the biggest nights yet. But that made for today to be a complete write off. Hung over to buggery for the first time this trip, I slept till 1, and napped a bit all arvo. Apparently I didn't miss much anyway.

    The group Tuscan dinner was tonight. Amazing. Throughout the trip, most meals have been on the ...

We went into the Accademie and wandered through several rooms with great art and then into a room that had David standing at the end. Pretty impressive. After that nothing in the Accademie was as good and as we had been in there for an hour and a half, thought it was time to move one. We then walked down to the square where ...
