          Individual guest reviews

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            The staff was very friendly. Free Internet. Great location - 2 steps - and you are near Duomo!

            In the evenings and nights was very noisy We are heard all conversations of the guests. The breakfast is not good. Very difficult to find the hotel!

          • Family with children
            8.8

            The Hotel's major advantage is that it is very well located for tsightseeing in central Florence and at a cost that was relatively reasonable. As a family group (of four) we found our room was clean and had sufficient space for a short stay for all of us. The bathroom was a good size and catered for all of us. In addition our room in particular was very quiet.

            Although not a direct criticism people should be aware that the hotel is located on a pedestrian thoroughfare and when arriving by car it can be a challange to navigate to. In addition you can expect to pay dearly for parking as the logical choice is to take advantage of Valet parking which I believe was in the order of 24 Euro's per day. For those in vehicles you need to include this in your cost as there are no obvious alternatives and the 'non' valet alternative does not cost much less.

          • Single
            3.2

            This hotel is filthy. I have traveled Europe for 12 years. This is the worst ever. Tissue thin walls. Noisy all day and night. I have pictures of the filth in the room. The noise is continuous. You can not sleep day or night. The shower is the bathroom. There is a hole in the floor for the drain. No shower enclosure, just a curtain hanging 6 inches from the floor in the middle of the space. If you are thinking of booking this hotel, beware, the staff is arrogant. Avoid this place.

            the location is the only thing that deserves mention.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            Value for money and excellent position - staff extremely helpful.

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            The room are very well kept and comfortable. The staff was outstanding.

            A couple of major concerns. First, many of the rooms overlook a street behind the hotel building. The area is extremely noisy...loud people, trash trucks and activity in general. It was very difficult to sleep. Also, the lift only goes to the 3rd floor. There are many rooms on the 4th. A very difficult trip upstairs with baggage.

          • Group of friends
            8.8

            Staff very friendly and helpful and the central location was a real boon as we had an elderly lady with us and were able to walk to all atrractions.

            Would liked to have sat and had a drink before we went out to eat and were waiting for others to get ready. No bar or any decent wine in fridge. A fridge in room would also have been useful.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Loved the location.the view on the river was great.the hotel itself was like going back in time, very charming. Will recommend it!

          • Family with children
            7.8

            People in the lobby is very friendly and helpful, great attitude.

            No complains. It was a great experience. I will stay again there

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Location was great, staff outstanding

            No effort made to identify exactly where the hotel could be found by the traveler, upon booking. We were trwaveling by car and it was impossible to locate hotel, or even know where to find the parking.

          • Family with children
            6.6

            Location was the best thing. It was a clean and basic hotel. It has a sister hotel on the 1st floor, Axial Hotel which was nicer with more amenities and equally clean. The staff was also very friendly and very helpful.

            rooms were a little dingy and the room was up 1 flight and there was no elevator.

          • Family with children
            8.2

            Location to sight seeing and museums.

          • Couple
            7.4

            Rooms are basic but the hotel is very central, at a good location. Staff are very friendly and helpful. It is a good base if you are not going to spend too much time in the room.

            Rooms are in need of refurbishment. As other reviewers mentioned, there is some street noise. You can hear the Duomo bells early in the morning which wasn't too bad for us. Although our room was facing a back street, the binmen were so loud on collections on the street, they woke us up several times around 6-7am each morning.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            Hotel Maxim is in a very good location...walking distance to most things you want to see in Florence. It is a good price for a basic hotel and it suited us well. Clean, comfortable & included breakfast. Staff was helpful.

          • Family with children
            4.2

            The location - it was close to the railway station and that's what was important to us.

            The service is very bad - one of the front office manager's actually shouted at us. The rooms are drab and shabby.

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            Location is hard to beat, less than a block from Duomo, close to everything one would like to see in Florence

            The hotel is not in best condition - even considering that it's relatively low priced hotel in very heart of Florence - rooms are begging for some tlc. And the other point is that because of its location it's extremely noisy, especially if the windows of you room are facing the street.
