“Super hotel with a great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2011

The front office staff were extremely helpful and were very warm. The rooms were cosy and clean - not very big but enough for the both of us. Toilets were clean and had a daily replenishment of amenities. The location was the best part as it was a two minute walk to the Duomo. Breakfast variety was small but the quality of the food was excellent. Will definitely recommend this to others. Wifi was free and very helpful to have access to.

Not the easiest hotel to find. Located on the third floor of a block-long building with no signage visible until you are standing in front of it and an elevator that took two people and two bags at a time (there were six of us). But, once settled in we found this hotel to be central to all of the attractions, restaurants and nightlife in the city. The rooms were large and comfortable and the breakfast room was well stocked with coffees, juices, rolls, cereals, etc.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the courtyard.

Stayed at the Hotel Maxim during a recent trip to Florence. Rooms are very basic, but clean with good showers.Room was also very quite even though there were a few youth groups there during our stay. Rate included a decent breakfast buffet and there were free internet termimals in the lobby. Staff was very friendly.

This is not a "deluxe" by any strech, but the location is GREAT! Very close to the sites on a pedestrian street.

For the price this was a great value!

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect location. We had only one day in the beautiful city of Florence and we were able to work to everything! The price was reasonable and included a small breakfast in the morning.

Rooms were clean, staff was helpful. Room was not fancy, but defintiely fine for a good night's sleep.

Room Tip: Book early & online

1 block from the Duomo - amazing location! Continental breakfast included. Many restaurant choices nearby - shopping on the same street! In advance of our stay, I checked with the hotel and they assisted us in booking a visit to the Uffizi and the Accademia which was very helpful! We were able to bypass the long lines and go straight in!

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in May and absolutely loved it! The location could not have been better (literally a block from the Duomo)! The rooms were very clean and well kept though nothing to really write home about. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. I emailed them before our trip and they helped us to make reservations at the Uffizi. They were very quick with responding to emails and they even helped us to make dinner reservations once we arrived. I would definitely recommend this place!

We stayed in a quad room with bath with two adults and two teenage boys. The room was on the small side but clean and comfortable and we weren't there to hang out in the room anyway. The location just of the main piazza was very convenient and put you right in the heart of the action. Lots of things going on at all times for whatever one wanted to do. It was great waking up to the sound of the bells each morning. The building and location felt safe and secure. The breakfast was simple but offered a good selection and got us off to a good start to our day. Would certainly recommend as a place to stay.
