Our stay at Maximilian Hotel was excellent. I must mention the staff first of all, they bent over backwards to make our stay comfortable. Not only was the service exceptional, but after I mentioned we were celebrating our wedding anniversary we returned to our room to find complimentary wine, strawberries and chocolate. How lovely! The room was large by European standards, well designed to maximize space, and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast provided was great, with lots of variety whether you want to keep it healthy or have a big American style breakfast. The location was excellent, too - we walked to all of the tourist sites, though there is public transport handy as well. The hotel itself has a modern and minimalist feel which we really liked. There are also facilities like a library and honesty bar. For the price you can't go wrong. Highly recommended!

We are just back from a fantastic long-weekend stay at the Maximilian hotel. From the moment we walked into the hotel we knew we had made a good choice. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful from start to finish and little touches made the stay even better, especially the lovely treats left in the room on my birthday and we enjoyed having a goldfish in our room. The room itself (superior deluxe double) was very spacious and quiet; despite some vague initial concerns that it could be noisy as we were right beside the lift we weren't distubed once by any noise. Breakfast was very tasty and there was loads of choice - there werent enough days to sample everything! The location was perfect - very close by a drop off point on the airport bus/tram and very close to the old square, but at the same time you didnt feel like you were right in the middle of the very busy touristy areas. I wouldnt hestitate to recommend this hotel to anyone going to Prague.

The location is great, just a few minutes away from the Old Square and most touristic attractions. We did not have to use the public transportation even to go to the main rail way station, which is only a 20 minutes walk away.

The first thing we noticed when we entered the hotel is that is doesn't look like a "typical" hotel. It is very modern and design with glass windows and big open areas. There is a library and a honesty bar (you are trusted to pay what you take) where you can rest and chill out.
The staff is friendly and helpful and speaks fluent English.

Breakfast is one of the best I ever had. There is a very nice buffet plus a menu from which you can order anything you like.

We also really liked the idea of having a pet - a goldfish! - in you room.

I stayed at the Maximilian hotel for three nights in March 2014.

The hotel is very nicely located at short walking distance from the Old Square. The premises are very nice, recently refurbished in a pleasant way. Breakfast is very good both in terms of quality and of quantity of choices. Even freshly squeezed orange juice is available on the spot. Staff in the breakfast room is very nice and very helpful. Staff at the reception is nice. Not everybody speaks good English.

Rooms are pleasant and spacious.

However, housekeeping is not at the appropriate standard for an hotel of such a category. Bed sheets were not changed and three nights is really too much for a four-star hotel. At 13.00 my room was still not redone - and this happened every day I was there. Towels were of average quality and some were very thin. Replacement of toiletries was average and gave the impression of a superficial attention. Definitely an area where substantial improvement is needed.

I thought about giving three stars because of this but other elements deserved more so I went for a four-star this time.

My husband and I came here for our "baby moon" and really enjoyed everything about this hotel. The free breakfast every morning was delicious, the staff was very courteous and helpful in booking our tour reservations, the rooms are very clean and the location was absolutely ideal to all the sites we wanted to experience. Personally I felt the bed was not super comfortable but aside from that we really enjoyed our stay. Also, When you check in try to get a room with a view.

I have been to Prague for both business and pleasure, and I must say that the Hotel Maximilian (and it's sister Hotel Josef) are atop my list of places to stay when in town. The staff are ALWAYS courteous and friendly, they provide a reasonably priced taxi to and from the airport, and their breakfast is actually excellent. Don't let most map software fool you; this hotel is right in the mix of everything you want and need for business or pleasure, and it is very competitively priced.

I also like the little things that this boutique hotel offers, such as having a goldfish as your "pet" during your stay. It's corny, but it is a nice little touch. I overwhelmingly suggest this property to anyone visiting Prague.
