Hotel Le Maxime

Reviewed 8 August 2017

We had a top floor room looking out over the Yonne river for two nights to visit a nearby champagne festival with another English couple. Of course it was August so most of the other guests were just passing through on the rush to the South and most of the city shops were closed.

However, the reception staff were all friendly and tolerated my poor French, only speaking their excellent English to make sure we had understood each other!
Good recommendation for a late lunch spot when we arrived at 14:45 (check in is not until 15:00) and good value parking in their covered garage at €9 per night.

There were only two issues, both minor, there is a bar nearby "Chez Max" which is quite loud on the Friday/Saturday nights we stayed. Also there is something either in the plumbing or air systems making a random rattling noise intermittently throughout the night, as I say, mild irritants - I still slept perfectly well.

Sadly there was an admin problem that meant our payment had not been properly registered but again the lady on reception was apologetic and took the reference number to deal with this herself rather than expect me to pay twice and sort things out.

Room Tip: River views are lovely

I have stayed as this hotel many times in the past but not in the past 10 years so I was interested to see what had changed in what has always been a traditional French hotel in a lovely building . The setting has if anything improved with good parking on the road and the riverside much improved. The hotel itself has been modernised but in a way that doesn't loose its traditional feel . The rooms are good clean and comfortable the breakfast is ok but not exceptional. The staff couldn't be more helpful and speak better English than my awful French ! I will be going back and this time not wait another 10 years

Located right on the river bank there are great views from the front of the hotel. Hotel staff very Friendly and helpful, Breakfast ok, although could have been "restocked" a little more frequently to avoid empty dishes and having to wait. Parking available if reserved. location good for the town centre.

Right by the river close to the old town, this is what makes the Hotel special. It is clean with friendly staff and even has a parking garage. The rooms and breakfast are average, nothing wrong with it, though, if you only plan to stay a short while.

We enjoyed our one night stay in mid-May. We had a nice size room on the first floor overlooking the river. The double windows helped with the somewhat busy street. It worked well. The room had a mini fridge, which is always nice when traveling from town to town, and a good size bathroom. Secure parking was available in the back. We liked the location with the river and some benches across the street, easy access to this amazing old historic town, and access to several near-by restaurants. Staff was sparse but helpful when we checked in and out. All in all it was a pleasant, albeit short stay, and we would likely stay again. I feel the only reason it didn't deserve a fifth star was that there were a couple of large areas of the room ceiling with peeling paint, and some major mold in a couple of places (or what we took for mold given how it looked). I presume that's simply the nature of older buildings, especially near rivers and such. So, I don't want to be too harsh. If in the Auxerre area we certainly would include this on our list for a return visit.
