“Only for one night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

The hotel is abeam a shopping center and 1min away from Rhein River (walking distance). A few nice restaurants are also located around the hotel. From Basel City you have to take once a tram and a bus. The bus stop is across the street. The breakfast was great. Fresh eggs, joghurts, juice, bred, toast and much more. A taxi costs you 25.- Euro from the hotel to the airport. If you take a taxi from the airport, it will cost you 50.- Euro!!!
The room I had smells (cigarette smoke) and it was very old. Looks like an old 1.5 bedroom appartment equipped with a citchen. The room was more or less clean. Unfortunately I was not able to change the room, because the hotel was completely booked...
The staff is very friendly.

Room Tip: I can recommend a stay in this hotel, but make sure you get a nice room..! The Maximilian and the Ho...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We stopped here while driving from Switzerland to northern Germany. The hotel is actually part of a rather sizeable shopping centre which meant plenty of parking and a lot of restaurant choices. We had a family room that was enormous, with a kitchenette.Our kids loved having space to run around the room and the gummi bears on the beds were a big hit. The hotel is a bit hard to find from inside the shopping center, and it seems like the different floors are a bit of a maze, with it not being quite possible to get to the hotel or the floor of your room from certain lifts.

The parking lot lifts are terribly slow and inefficient, with only a call button, so when the lift stops it could be going up or down, but get in and press your floor anyway, as another won't be coming for quite some time.

Room Tip: The family room was very big, not much view, but excellent for a couple and 2 children.

We selpt at this hotel for 1 night because we had an early flight from Basel airport. The girls at the reception were very friendly and made us packaged breakfast for our early checkout. the room was cosy and nicely furnished.

Room Tip: The rooms are in different floors and not always easy to find.

Because I travel a lot to Weil am Rhein for a business, I had the pleasure to "test" most of hotels in the city. Unfortunately Hotel Maximilian was the worst one there. Room quality corresponds to the price category, unfortunately blankets are too short so I couldn't sleep well because of the cold. Also breakfast was below average - very limited selection without any fruits or vegetable.

friendly priced hotel for a stay just before/after Swiss border. Nothing bad and nothing very good. Beds, bathroom, TV, breakfast. Friendly helpful staff. Free parking in parking garage of shopping center. Strange location, with strange atmosphere and not easy to find. Good alternative to expensive poor service Ott's hotel where I also stayed.

We ended up here in the middle of the night on our way to Switzerland as we had problems with the access codes for another (cheap) hotel we booked. They were very helpfull and even did give as good rate despite we had no alterantive. Nice breakfast and good service, big clean rooms, but we did miss an airco as it was rather hot that night.
