Situated on the third and fourth floors of a 19th century building, the Hotel Maxim is a clean and comfortable two-star property strategically located between the Piazza del Duomo and Piazza della Signoroia. A friendly and attentive staff is focused on the customer experience, an anomaly for a budget property. Continental breakfast is included in the room cost, as are time credits for complimentary Internet access.

Room decor varies from modern to classic, though all layouts feature air conditioning, telephone, satellite TV, Wi-Fi (fees apply, though time credit is extended to all guests) and a safe. Double glass windows resist street noise, which is essential in this bustling central Florence location.

Awesome location in Florence

Would recommend Fri, Jul 5, 2013
when you walk out the door you are on the main shopping street which is in walking distance to all of the main attractions. The hotel is surrounded by many restaurants and shops and is only 2 blocks from the Duomo. The staff was very helpful with assisting us with getting to not only the major attractions but with some smaller events going on as well. We were a bit disappointed with the fact that the breakfast room did not open on time as we had some excursions that we had to skip breakfast for because of the late opening. All in all it was a very good experience.

Dream vacation

My overall experience with hotel maxim was perfect. Upon arriving, we were greated with a warm welcome by one of the hotels front desk staff. I forgot her name but it should be mentioned that she took the time to explain the area to us and also gave us great recommendations on local tours and places to eat. The hotels location can't be any better being that you are just steps away from all the great sights in Florence and a few minute walk from the train station. Their breakfast is perfect consisting of warm croissants and tea. Remember that European people don't have massive breakfast plates that we are accustomed to in the US.


The hotel offers a variety of excursions around town to keep you busy. We took a day tour to sienna and had the best time of our lives. I highly suggest if you have time to find the tour that takes you on a day trip to sienna and finishes by taking you to a local winery. Best money you will spend on your trip, five star!!!!

Second Hotel in Florence

Would not recommend Fri, Jan 13, 2012
We had to move to this Hotel because of the International Men's Fashion Week and couldn't extend another day at the other Hotel without paying sky high prices for rooms. This Hotel was comfortable for a two Star. Bed was hard as with the pillows so sleeping was not pleasant.


Short walk to Domo and all the sites are within reasonable distance of the Hotel.

The location of the hotel cannot be beat. You are a short, entertaining walk from the city center (Duomo). The hotel was serviceable, not comfortable. Spaces were tight (shower, toilet, bed perimeter). The staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall, if you are looking for a hotel with a great location, this is it. If you need more out of your hotel, then look elsewhere.

No frills but great location

Would recommend Tue, May 31, 2011
This hotel is on the 3rd and 4th floors of a building right between the Duomo and Florence's main plaza, so the location couldn't be better. We got a clean, basic room for about 100 euros/night, with continental breakfast and wifi included. Staff was friendly and helpful, but the 10 am check-out time was a bit much (though hotel has free luggage storage). Street noise was also an issue, as we were woken up at 7 am by god awful garbage/recycling trucks outside, with the sound of cascading glass bottles ringing in our ears. Also, no elevator to 4th floor, so ask for 3rd floor is you have heavy luggage. Still, a pretty good place for the $ given the location.

Great location!

Would recommend Wed, Sep 29, 2010
Great location, less than 5 min. away from Il Duomo. Hard to find had trouble looking for parking to unload baggage. Hotel is located right in between shops once you go in the hotel is on the third flood. You can either take an elevator or the stairs. Once you step into the hotel it's nice and fresh. What I didn't like was that the keys were left out in the public so every time you walk in you grab your own keys. When your stepping out you're asked to leave your own keys hanging on the wall hooks. At times when we would go step in the hotel the receptionist was no wear in sight making it easy for anyone to come in and just grab any key. There's two public Pc's that can be use for internet access free. A storage room to check in your baggage if your room is not ready, or if you have to check out early but your not leaving the city yet. The room we reserved was a double, but it had a twin bed along with the double which was a plus for putting our stuff. The room was spacious, AC worked great, windows were useless they were so difficult to open or close. The breakfast buffet was simple, no AC in the room though. All in all it was a great place to stay location wise, the room was just as expected.

Excellent location, decent hotel

Would recommend Tue, Oct 13, 2009
* Location is perfect. Right on Via Calz, next to the Duomo, in the middle of all the action. * Free Breakfast is good, adequate. * Reception service is helpful, polite.


You can get tickets/reserve times to all the great museums in Florence at the Orsamichelle Church, a block to the right of the hotel.
