“Very attractive to take the ferry”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Nice and clean hotel, very close from ferry lines, quite and a very good restaurant. Nespresso corner available, nice breakfast if you are early, to late you will have poor choice but personnal is very helfull. Have also find some gluten free food for my wife.
Quite area with a outside or inside parking. We have booked for the way to Corsica and book again for our return night.
Outside parking was safe for our motorbike.

Located near the motorway but somewhat isolated on the edge of town, the 9-story Max Hotel offers comfortable rooms at competitive prices. Ample free parking space is available in front of the hotel. A small shopping center with a few shops is attached.

An English speaking receptionist assigned us to room #810, which came with dark wood imitation laminate flooring, a fridge, desk, small TV, comfy king size bed, no safe, good WI-FI, and a view towards the city of Livorno and the distant Mediterranean. Though newer, furniture and area rug show signs of wear, but clean overall. At night it was super quiet. The A/C in our west facing room did not respond to the thermostat in the room, requiring a call to reception to activate the system and to bring the temperature down into the comfort zone. The super modern bath with its glass vanity counter top, clear glass sink, a bidet, and a tub/shower combo was well lit and spotless.

The in-house restaurant served excellent fare from a menu selection with something for everyone. Breakfast served from six a.m. consists of a typical enhanced continental assortment, plus a very nice spread of baked sweets.

For the price of 99 Euro, the Max hotel offers business travelers and road wary tourists a comfortable, quiet place to spend the night in modern comfort.

Arriving at 1930h on a Sunday evening, I was suprised that the restaurant was closed. Had to grab some slices of pizza in the nearby shopping mall which was like a ghost town. I was told that most of the shops had closed due to lack of business, after the hyper market had opened. The room was noisy and one could hear guests checking in late in the night. The room was otherwise comfortable. Despite being on only the fourth floor there was no pressure in the shower head, which has also needs to be changed.
The buffet breakfast had a limited offering and this was the worst breakfast I had during my ten days in Italy. Except for the proximity to the train station, there is no excuse to stay here.

I would recommend this hotel, if the price is right.

The hotel is a 15-minute walk from the train station. However, I was forced to walk on the road in a couple of places. The front desk attendants spoke fluent English. The hotel provides free Internet. I found the breakfast to be OK and the restaurant staff somewhat lacking in
customer focus.

these is a glass door to the bathroom, you even cannot lock it, there is an opening between this door and wall about 3-4 inches(10 sm), so you can enjoy(?) the view and smell of the person using shower or toilet!

The hotel is situated a couple of km out of town and twenty minute walk from the train station - a taxi to the centre of town or the port is about 20 Euro. The hotel is right next store to a fairly good shopping centre. The room was good and the bathroom had a bath. The staff were courteous and professional. The breakfast was pretty good. We would certainly stay there again for a one night stopover although something more central would be preferable although for that price for quality ratio it would be hard to beat

A website said the location of the hotel was less than a km from the train station. This may be the case but it was a route I would not walk with my 12 year old son. We stopped in Livorno for one night to catch the ferry to Corsica, and chose this hotel because it was supposedly close to the train station -- after settling in we planned to go to Pisa and being close to the train station cuts down on taxis. The room was lovely - very fresh style, new finishes. The bathroom was beautiful but the shower door leaked like crazy. The breakfast is ok - lots of breads to choose from but not great on the selection of proteins. The staff were friendly -- would stay here again.
