“Nice, new hotel but let down by the restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

A modern hotel but off the beaten track. Cost of 25 eoro from the ferry port. It is out of town. We were dissappointed with the service in the restaurant. The description of meals on the menu was not what arrived on the table. Breakfast was disasterous as, at 09.00, there was nothing left except croissants and toast. The cook had gone home and no more hot food would be provided. There was still one hour before breakfast finished.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2011

I stayed one night with my family to catch the morning ferry from Livorno to Sardinia.

The hotel is offsite, next to a half abandoned shopping hall that hosts a terrible pizza fast food place (I wonder how such a place can exist in Italy). Anyway, you need a car to get to the hotel and also to get back to civilization.

What we liked was the spacious room, the free water from the mini bar, free parking in front of the hotel as well as in the underground garage. Breakfast was ok. The price was fair (125 EUR for a room with two double beds).

Internet was free but didn't work. The while hotel smelled a little bit strange and I would get depressed if I needed to stay there for longer than a night.

A hotel a bit in the outskirts of the city but very convenient if you have to catch an early ferry to Corsica: breakfast starts at 6.30 and the staff is efficient and helpful. It takes about 15min to get to the harbor. The hotel is a nice city hotel, nice clean rooms, very comfortable beds...we would definitely go back and recommend to our friends. However, be aware that you DO need a car to get there and back to harbor.

First of all - our GPS said to us that such building number... doesnt exist, but we didnt give up :)
When we finally located the Hotel we, at first, found it modern and nice. Also we were told proudly that minibar is free of charge. Only when we got into the room we realized that that must had been a jeer!! In the fridge - two small cokes & mineral water... Very generous! Further on in our bathroom, shower handle wasnt held properly (falling down), very short shower guard didnt prevent water from falling down to the floor.
B/F finished us up! Cold becon, no eggs, only milk, tea/coffe and cereals!! Our mood was spoiled... that morning I had a birthday, but during check-out nothing was said... It's not a bif deal, but still...
So we've got a not very good overall impression, in spite of all the modern and new building appearance/design/interior.

As has been commented on, this is a good business hotel. We actually stayed here for the first leg of our honeymoon as it seemed to be the nicest around and I wanted something close to the port (I had completely got the hotel in the wrong place - it's a couple of miles away!). We had an executive room booked through Expedia which seemed good value for what you got. The bed was enormous. The minibar was complimentary (coke and sparkling water only, but hey...) and the bathroom was amazing. Air con worked flawlessly. Breakfast was a good continental style with lots of choice, but service was definitely not with a smile (efficent, but not friendly). The reception staff, however, were very friendly and gave us a map to help find our way around. Found it quite hard to find, but think that's more to me not setting the Sat-Nav up properly as it appeared afterwards there were loads of signs within Livorno.

Would happily stay here again - especially if Sterling ever gets any stronger!

We stayed at the max hotel for one night in July as we were going to a concert in the stadium.We arrived early but we got our room after a small wait of 5 minutes and took advantage of the free coffee/water/or fruit juice available in the comfortable and cool reception.The room was super clean and very modern with air-con which was good as it was boiling outside.
The location is only maybe ten minutes away from livorno centrale and can be reached easily via a pedestrian subway.It is built into a small shopping mall which has a nice and busy cafe which is really handy,and the breakfast was great in the hotel!!
