“Fantastic Location - Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2007

I am a single woman and was in Prague by myself for a few days in March, 2007. I got this hotel as a package from Luxury Link and it included daily breakfast. This hotel is ultra modern with sparse furnishings in a somewhat non-descript building. Inside the hotel though, it is quite well decorated and as I said quite modern. It is located on a quiet street in old city/town area very close to the old town square. It was within walking distance to everything. Prague is a great walking city and the location of this hotel was perfect. The service from the staff was also good but not exceptional.

The rooms were as expected - quite modern but very comfortable indeed. I have lived and traveled in Europe and the room was a good size like you would expect in North America. The bed is not the Westin Heavenly Bed but it was comfortable. The room was very clean but as is now common in many hotels, the sheets were changed every other day. They only had 2 English channels on TV - BBC news and CNN so watching TV is out of the question. They did have some DVDs you can rent from reception for about $2. They did not have a large selection but then Prague is not the kind of city where you spend a lot of time in your hotel room.

The breakfast spread was fantastic. Good quality food and the service was great. There was something for every diet preference. There was no pressure to tip like in the US and some of the other countries I have been like Mexico and Barbados. Of course, like all service professionals, they appreciate a good tip.

The hotel has a self serve bar (the honesty bar). Tea, coffee and pastries are free. You write what other drinks you have and they charge it to your room. Honor system :-)

All in all, I would recommend this hotel. It was great value for the price.

  • Liked — It was quiet - free internet, breakfast, and honesty bar
  • Disliked — Service could be better but it was not terrible. TV was not great for cold days.

we have just got back from 4 nights staying at the maximillian hotel.

the hotel was perfect for the duration of our stay, there are loads of good restraunts all around the hotel, and it's only a 5 minute walk to the old town square.

the room was a nice size (large), the bathroom was very clean (and had a full size bath ), a complimentary bottle of wine and fruit was there as well.

the hotel staff could not have been more helpful.

the breakfast was superb, and was open till 11:00am, (so a lie-in was'nt at the expense of your breakfast)

we also booked an airport transfer with www.prague-airport-shuttle.com , they were brilliant, very nice driver and car, excellent value, and timing for pick-up was spot-on ! definately recommended !

hope this helps.....

We were booked for a 3 night stay at the Josef (owned by the same company) but they had double booked (told us it was a problem with the smoke detectors but onlu in 1 room not the whole zone?) so we wre put up at the Maximian for the 1st night.
It is a superior hotel to the Josef with very comfortale king sized bed and decent sized bathroom.
Breakfast was in bright clean room with a wide slection to cater for all tastes.
Although the double booking wasn't great the comany didlook after us well and we wished we'd booked the Maximillian.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in March. As others have said, the location is excellent - it is only a few minutes from the old square.

The rooms are lovely, with lots of nice small touches (jelly bears left on pillows, robes, slippers, White Co bathroom products etc).

There is a DVD player in the room, and you can hire DVDs for a few pounds from reception. Also room service menu if you get hungry in the evening.

There is also a very small TV in the bathroom in case you fancy watching BBC or CNN while getting ready!

Starff are really hepful, and will help you book tours, taxis and restaurants, Nothing was too much bother for the staff.


I highly recommend this hotel. You won't be disappointed. If I return to Prague, I will definetly be staying here again.

We have just enjoyed 3 great nights in the Hotel Maximilian, the position is spot on if you want a quiet location - yet only 5 minutes from Old Town Square, Charles Bridge etc. having read a previous visitors comments on tripadvisor we took the advice and rang the Hotel to arrange a car to pick us up from the Airport - this worked very well indeed and was well worth the 780 czec Crowns (£20). Checking in was pleasant quick and helpful with maps and advice being freely provided. Our room was very nice and exceptionally clean. Breakfast was very good with a huge choice and once again helpful staff on hand. We visited Tuesday - Friday and if like us, you want quiet time, I would suggest that its the best time, as we did not see a single Hen or Stag Party and it was a thouroughly pleasant experience. we will go back!

Have to say that this is one of the nicest and cleanest hotels we have stayed in for some time and the staff were extremely helpful. The decor although minimilistic was stunning, but have to say the furniture was very uncomfortable in the honesty bar.
The room itself was well appointed and the bed absolutely massive. The bathroom was in pristine condition with a full on drench shower to ease the aches and pains of the days walking.
The location of the hotel couldn't have been better with only a 5 minute walk to the old town square and then a further 5 minutes to the Charles Bridge.
The restaurant next door (Chez Marcel) offered exceptional value for money with a truly friendly atmosphere.
The Maximilian will be our first port of call should we ever visit Prague again.

This hotel is in a great spot just a couple of minutes walk from the Old Town Square. The staff were so helpful, booking trips for us, advising us where to eat & drink etc.
The breakfast is amazing with a huge range of different foods to suit everyone.
The room was a good size with everything we required (no english speaking channels on tv but we weren't there to watch tv so not a problem).
We walked everywhere except up to the castle, take the No.22 tram it's much easier on the legs.
It really is a very comfortable hotel and the Mexican restaurant round the corner Mama Lucy's is cheap and good value ... the milkshakes were great.
