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,... More

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... More

My husband and I and another couple just spent three nights at the Hotel Maxim in Florence. As others have said, the location could not have been more ideal and the staff was very helpful. What sets the Maxim apart from other hotels in this price range is that the rooms are large enough for two people to navigate and... More

This is a charming little hotel located on the fourth floor of an old building right in the middle of one of the main streets in old town Florence. Just like everyone mentioned before, the location is perfect as you can walk everywhere from here. The hotel staff is very nice and helpful. The staff speaks both English and Spanish... More

situated between the Duomo and the Uffizi on Via del Calzaluoli, you could not find a more convenient location in Firenze. The staff is friendly and the free WiFi has a strong signal. A nice breakfast is included. The major sites and excellent dining (and shopping) are all very close. The train station is also within walking distance if you... More

Had a wonderful break in Florence. The hotel Maxim made it even better. The staff are really friendly and very helpful. They will help you to book any trips that you may be interested in. The hotel is in an excellent position,and only10 mins walk from the train station. Breakfast was good, with lovely warm, fresh Croissants every morning.

Actually, I had done the reservation at Maxim Hotel, however I was rellocated to Axial Hotel, which is in the same building but is 3 Stars. Great Hotel, wonderful bedroom and bed, bathroom inside the room. Great Shower! Everything very clean, great breakfast. The location is excellent, in the main shopping street in Firenze, close to all attractions. Highly recomended.

The hotel needs a little rehauling, but the position and the reasonable price make up for it. The lady at the front desk, Ida, is an absolute darling and very helpful. Had a one night stay and was pleased with it. The position of the hotel is fenomenal. Maria Kilian Gennaro and Diana Burnett

I stayed at this hotel for one evening only and found myself immersed into a fantasy film of the 60's,,, I stayed for one night and had an early start missing breakfast, so cannot comment on that aspect. The room was small and mine facing Via Calzaiuoli was noisy during the night with road sweepers and cars driving through. The... More
