The location makes this hotel! The room was fine but the bathroom was very small and narrow. The wifi is free and fast. The breakfast was ok. The staff are lovely. Was concerned when we collect our passports next morning after checking in the afternoon before that they were not locked away but in the pigeon holes near the front... More

Perfect location for touring by foot in heart of pedestrian historical center. Clean modern comfortable. Quiet for heart of city. Staff went beyond to get my reservations for museums on short notice. Plus breakfast was great starter. If give it 5 star for price range. Will stay again.

I recently stayed at the Hotel Maxim on my first trip to Florence and had a very good experience. The hotel is very centrally located - on the main drag and just a few hundred yards from the Duomo. The staff was very accommodating and the room was very comfortable and I found it to be a good value, especially... More

Hotel Maxim in Florence is wonderfully located, just meters from the "Domo", in an area with lots of restaurants and shops. The hotel is on the 3rd floor, and is spread on that floor. It's is charming in a way, small lobby and very plain dinning room. we had a room for 4, which was very very crowded. we could... More

This hotel is on the third and fourth floors of a large building on the main pedestrian road of the city center. It is centrally located—just a stone’s throw from the principal landmarks of the historic center. It has an elevator but no parking. We asked for a quiet room on the same floor as the reception and we got... More

Best location, on Via Calzaiouli, the very heart on Old Town. Third and fourth floors in a traditional building (with elevator), the hotel appears to have been renovated not long ago. We had a very adequate room & bathroom, nothing luxurious or very big but comfortable enough Good breakfast. Friendly & helpful front desk. Good value for money given Florence... More

this hotel is in the centre of the tourist strip, so a great launching pad for all there is to see in wonderful florence. Breakfast is basic and why do they give you plastic spoons? That was a bit weird. Our room faced the courtyard so was very quiet. Reception was helpful with restaurant recommendations.

This hotel met my expectations for friendly and accommodating staff, excellent location, very clean, light breakfast, and free wifi. As other reviewers have indicated, it is on the third floor but there is an elevator. There is also access to a small patio for relaxing with a good bottle of wine. As other reviewers have indicated, the rooms and amenities... More

Florence is an amazing place to visit all of the classic art and sculpture masterpieces. The hotel is above a Disney store on a very touristy block (which at first was a turn off). But on the plus side, very conveniently located to walk everywhere we wanted to go- all the major churches and museums, galleries, restaurants. The train station... More
