Reviewed 15 May 2014

The room was very small. We expected a bigger room. Before, we saw pictures of the rooms of hotel Maxim, and they looked bigger. So we were disappointed.
The lokation was very good, near the duomo. The rooms were clean.

Location is perfect, staff is helpful, room was clean. You don't need more for the city trip! Every interested thing is within walking distance, so you can save a lot of time for traveling. I definitely recommend this hotel for a short city trip!

We arrived in on the train and had about a 10 minute walk to the hotel. It was easy to find and an excellent location for visiting the main attractions of Florence. Although it is located on a busy thoroughfare, the room itself was very quiet. The Duomo is literally a 2 minute walk to the left and the Palazzo Vecchio is less than 5 minutes to the right. The room was perfect - not that we spent much time in it. The bathroom was quite small and a bit old, but certainly sufficed. Breakup fast was included and provided quite a selection - a great start to the day. The staff were very friendly and helpful and they kept outer bags for the afternoon, after we checked out, which allowed us to do some more sight-seeing without the burden if luggage. There were computers available for use in the lobby, with wi-fi in the rooms and there were plenty of brochures available with touristy suggestions. Great place I stay.

The location of this hotel is truly perfect. You are only about 1 to 1.5 blocks from the Duomo and Bell Tower. This is a perfect base to walk to all the major sites in 10 to 15 minutes. The room was plenty clean and comfortable, and the staff was very helpful. Obviously not the Ritz or Four Seasons, but truly an excellent value for the price and location.

The Hotel Maxim is an ideal locaton for exploring Florence. We have just returned from a visit and would recommend this hotel. The staff are great particularly Lorella on reception, all speak perfect English which makes things very good when your Italian is not so good!! A big thank you to all for making us so welcome.

Room Tip: If outside city noise is a problem ask for a quite room

A perfect location for sightseeing in the old town, the Hotel Maxim has friendly staff who speak English and are very helpful. Our room was large enough and clean, with shuttered windows that opened onto a side street. It had a wardrobe as well as a table and chairs. The bed was comfortable with crispy clean linen. The bathroom, however, was below the standards I expected for a hotel in its price range, with old fixtures and a shower that was hard to regulate. There was a hair dryer, and the towels, although thin (my wife called them "tea towels"), were plentiful and changed as needed. We didn't use the tiny TV, but we found the WiFi frustrating because the Internet connection was slow.

We love this hotel! Situated on Via dei Calzaiuoli just steps away from the Duomo on our first stay at Hotel Maxim we awoke to the sound of the Giotto's bells ringing and found a charming breakfast room decorated with the owner's paintings and lovely old Tuscan pottery decorating the walls. When we returned to Firenze three years later we knew we wanted to go back to this hotel. The breakfast itself was basic but generous with lots of rolls and croissants and cereals and yoghurts and kiwi fruits. The service at reception was always helpful, the rooms clean and spacious. Our only complaint was the noise from the bottle recycling pickup at 7 in the morning at the restaurant on the street below our room. This time we asked for a room on the courtyard and found it much quieter. The hotel has also installed a state of the art coffee machine in the breakfast room and you can have as many cappuccinos and lattes as you like. Book ahead because this is a popular hotel in September.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the courtyard for optimum quiet.
