Hotel Le Maxime
Ranked #5 of 21 Hotels in Auxerre
Reviewed 20 April 2017

We had stopped in Auxerre on past trips, stopping for coffee or lunch en route from somewhere to somewhere, and decided the town was worth a longer visit. We purposely looked for a hotel on the river since that seemed such a lovely base from which to wander around town, so we opted for Le Maxime. I am glad we did. This is an old world hotel, no glitz, but full of character and very comfortable. We had a room on the 2nd floor overlooking the river. I highly recommend spending the extra Euros for the view which is delightful. And while there may be traffic during the day, it dies down in the evening. The staff was very helpful in both suggesting places to eat and providing other helpful info about the town. The hotel has limited private parking, at a fee. The room itself was very comfortable, and looked to have been recently redecorated. All in all a lovely place for a stay in Auxerre in walking distance from the heart of the town.

Room Tip: Request a room facing the river. For quiter rooms, the rooms in the back are likely better.

This is the second time I've stayed at this hotel, and I've enjoyed it both times. It is a very classic hotel, with a lovely view of the river if you stay on that side. This time, I was a little disappointed that I didn't get the river view. And I had a few issues with the shower door in my room. But, besides that, the staff is awesome and the environment is very calm and relaxing. If I'm ever in Auxerre again, I will definitely stay here.

We were driving from the Ardeche Forest to Paris and needed a stopover fairly close to Paris; we have been to Auxerre before and thought an afternoon/evening here would be pleasant. We also needed secure parking so we didn't have to unpack the car (we had been traveling for two months at this point) and twin beds because I was just recovering from elbow surgery from a vacation accident.

The reception folks were very helpful, even carrying bags since I couldn't manage them myself and we had secure parking as requested and left most of our stuff in the car. The room was comfortable and pleasant with the twin beds requested. Breakfast was ample and pleasant.

The location is fabulous. It is right on the river and below the Cathedral. We were able to stroll to the historic center, visit the Cathedral, find a nice place for dinner and then stroll back to the hotel through picturesque streets.

Excellent Experience.

What a great recommendation I have to give for this hotel.
The rooms are fairly small, clean and nicely decorated. Ask for a room on the front of the hotel, as those offer beautiful river views.
But it is not the hardware, but the staff which easily lifts this three star hotel into the four star category! They are ever-smiling, polite and helpful: from checkin, breakfast and all the way to checkout. One staff member even brought us to the airport as no taxis were available at that time! This kind of commitment to customer service is unknown to the vast majority of hotels in France! Keep up the excellent work!

We booked this an hour before staying as we needed somewhere to stop over on our way to the Cote d'Azur.

We found it very easily and its really central with great views over the river, there is a decent amount of parking at the back and the staff were lovely.

Rooms are shabby chic style, lots of restaurants close by, just can't recommend it enough.
