We weren’t sure about staying in a two-star, but Maxim pleasantly surprised us. It is located on the 3rd floor of a building just steps from the Duomo and a few blocks from the Uffizi and the Ponte Vecchio. It was a bit like going to grandma’s house; everything was neat and clean with an assortment of beautiful furniture and artwork in the lobby and hallways and less exciting, functional furniture in the rooms. Some of the furniture and fixtures in our room had obviously been broken and repaired with love—why throw something out if it is still functional? The towels were large like beach towels which is not often the case when travelling. There was a small, older TV in the room which we didn’t have time to watch during our stay, but we did return to the hotel to watch the World Cup on the big-screen TV in the lobby with other guests. There are no refrigerators in the rooms but a large honour-bar in the lobby where you can find cold water and soft-drinks 24/7. The hotel offers wi-fi but also has 3 stand-alone computers in the lobby for guests to use with a 15-minute limit. The breakfast was your standard buffet with warm croissants, cereal, yoghurt, fresh fruit and juice (the only thing missing was a little protein: eggs, meat, cheese, etc.). A machine was available for you to make your own coffee, cappuccino, or hot chocolate. There are also umbrellas in the lobby for guests to borrow. Lorella at the reception desk is just lovely and extremely helpful (we heard her speak French, Italian and English very well!)

It was walking distance from the train station. Your best bet is to follow a map towards the Duomo. Once you are standing in front of (and facing) the Duomo, turn to your right and walk down Calzaiuoli. It will be #11 on your right just before the Disney store. Ring the buzzer to enter. There is a small elevator that will take you to the 3rd floor.

Room Tip: If you have a lot of luggage, ask for a room on the same floor as the lobby to avoid climbing stairs with your suitcases.

We only stayed here for three nights so it wasn't too bad but wouldn't recommend for an extended stay. Florence is really small so anywhere in town you're only a few minutes walk from the major sights. That makes the only positive about this hotel a little less appealing. Room felt dirty, crumbs in the armoire, college dormitory feel to the bath room. Staff was very nice and breakfast was good. Nice cappuccino/ coffee machine but slow and got backed up with ppl waiting every morning. About 8 flights of stairs or a tiny little elevator lift ride up to the lobby, followed by tiny little hallways that you could barely move through and more stairs to climb. Underwhelmed, wouldn't stay here again now that we know the location wasn't that big of a help.

-Location is amazing although a bit difficult to find. Right on the main road, close to the duomo and inside the shopping district. You cannot beat that.
-There is a lift to carry your luggage to the Reception but NOT to your room. You will have to do that yourself and if you are the lucky one (pun intended) to get a room on a higher floor, like we did,you have to walk all the way and then carry your bags through a flight of stairs and then reach your room.We laughed stating we need a map to find our room first and then of the city.
-Staff was very friendly and helpful.
-Breakfast selection was good.They play old music in the radio which is nice.
-Station is about 10minutes walking distance.
-Room and bathroom was tiny but clean. Very very small in size.We just had enough space to store our luggage and no space to move at all.
-Wi fi was good.
-Get your own adapter, if possible. They do not have any to rent.

You can drive here but be aware you will get looks when you drive down the pedestrian only area. The room was nice, but the AC was not yet turned on so we left the window open. This is not recommended for light sleepers as it will keep you awake all night.

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.
