The two-star Hotel Maxim offers comfortable and affordable digs in a historic building on Via Calzaiuoli, a wide pedestrian and shopping boulevard.
The Maxim’s 26 rooms are simply decorated. Some feature light wooden bed frames with attached nightstands, turquoise fabrics and Tuscan touches (terracotta floors, large windows and countryside paintings). The rooms in the older section play up the building’s history with antique furniture and heavy wooden beams. Regardless, all rooms are equipped with air conditioning and satellite television. Private bathrooms are simple, tiled in dark blue and white and equipped with showers or tubs.
The large breakfast room, where a buffet breakfast (included in the room rate) is served, is decked out with colorful Tuscan ceramics. The reception area is equipped with coffee and vending machines, antique furniture and two free Internet stations. We particularly loved the wooden-beam and terracotta ceiling and the small display case stuffed with ceramics.
Wi-Fi is available for an additional fee. Note that while the hotel is located on the third and fourth floors of the building, the elevator goes to the third floor only.

About the Hotel Maxim neighborhood
You can't miss Brunelleschi's magnificent dome atop the rosy marble Cathedral. It's the obvious central meeting point in Florence and the tourist hub of the city. Here, you're in the vicinity of practically everything: the Uffizi Museums, Palazzo della Signoria, the San Lorenzo Market and the Accademia. The big guns in Italian fashion are located along Via Tornabuoni and there are plenty of cafes and dining options.
