“City Break Return with Husbands”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Second time staying at this hotel in 5 years and the service and staff are still as welcoming, friendly and helpful. My Mum and me took our husbands this time. Spacious room, clean, well serviced. Breakfast included in the price didn't disappoint and plentiful. I would highly recommend this hotel for it's amenities and great location in proximity to the Old town Square and all the interesting places and buildings. Less than 5 minutes walk. Good bars, restaurants close by but stay away from some of the French diners as expensive and not so clean. Try the Ferrari Bar near by, with it's new shiny bar and restaurant, great staff, good fun for a couple of teenagers, pushing 50.

Room Tip: We had the room at the top Red tower, room 633. Spacious and quiet as long as you don't mind wa...

Our trip ended with 8 nights in Prague, at the lovely Maximilian Hotel. The hotel is full of amenities. We partook of the "Honesty Bar," where you could pour yourself a glass of wine and hang out...you just wrote your name and room number on the paper...thus the name, "Honesty Bar!" A great breakfast buffet started each day out nicely -- with "touristy" hours -- breakfast lasting until at least 11 AM. Thank you!
The room was great, though we found the air conditioning a bit overwhelming, so we ended up turning it off and opening the windows. We found a better balance of air and the interesting sounds of Prague floating through our room. The room was clean and comfortable. The location of the hotel is about 5 blocks from the Old Town Square, and within walking distance to most anything a tourist wants to see.
We REALLY appreciated the great service at the Maximilian Hotel. There was always someone to answer questions or lend a hand.

Our stay at the Hotel Maximilian was a pleasure. The staff was eager to help with directions, restaurant recommendations and ordering a cab. The rooms are larger than most we stayed in during our trip and well decorated in a modern art deco style. The bed was big, but the matress seemed a little flat compared to our previous hotel, the NH in Dresden. The items in the mini bar are competitively priced with what you would get on the street. They have a selection of dvd's for loan that you can order online and someone will deliver to your room. The morning breakfast buffet was good with a great selection. You can also order a few items off the menu. My girlfriend ordered a waffle one morning, but was disappointed when it arrived and seemed that it was frozen not fresh. However, there were plenty of options on the buffet to satisfy. The hotel is well located only five minutes walk to the main square and is surrounded by many good restaurants. Overall, we enjoyed our experience at the hotel very much and would stay there again on a future trip to Prague.

Room Tip: Our room faced the main street, but we found it to be very quiet.

My wife and I spent 3 nights at the Maximilian with another couple. Excellent location in the Old Town. Modern installations with a minimalist touch. The breakfast/brunch varied and plentiful. The room has additional details like an electricity converter/adapter, DVD player with a large dvd library to choose from, efficient WiFi, crokscrew, etc. Breakfast, WiFi, DVD all free.
Service is their specialty, everybody friendly and eager to help, to make a local call on your behalf, etc. We checked out early, 5:45am and they prepared a box lunch for every one of us since we were not going to have the time for breakfast. We would certainly recommend the hotel to our friends.

Great location, very clean, loved the honesty bar and the fact I could have a goldfish for the stay.
Paid for the church view, which with hindsight wasn't as glam as I was hoping for.
Great hotel, great location, great staff and a fantastic breakfast. Eggs benedict was awesome

Our family of 4 ( 2 teenage boys) stayed at the Hotel Maximilian August 5-8, 2013.
The location was outstanding ( so central), the rooms super clean and the staff were over the top helpful and friendly. Lovely perks such as afternoon tea and wine service.
The brunch was outstanding, with again, amazing friendly service.
The hotel also has a great car service to and from the airport with very friendly and knowledgeable drivers.
Great restaurants in the immediate area as well.
We'll be back.

Had a fantastic stay in Maximilian Hotel with my mother. Great large rooms, nice bathroom with bathtub. Fantastic breakfast with a large buffet and à la carte options. Oh and definitely come back to the hotel once before 5 pm for their happy hour, offering either coffee and cake, wine and cheese, …
Superb location near the old town square. Great service at the lobby, willing to book you a taxi or an excursion if wanted.

Would absolutely book this hotel again for my next stay in Prague.

One remark: there are blinds available, which the hotel closes during the day for the heat. Just a pity you can not use them during the nights.
