Hotel Hermes is a clean and well-run utilitarian hotel nearly directly across from the Firenze SMN train station. Tram stop is a few steps away. Bathroom was shared. Sink in room. The breakfast was basic but quite good. Excellent value.

We arrived at the Hermes, and were greeted by the young lady attendant who furnished us with a map whilst we waited for our room to be readied, and also pointed out to us on the map the major places of interest, this set the tone for the rest of the stay. Our room was clean but was dated, as... More

The owners were really nice people. They didn't spoke english very well but they always tried to help us with our questions. The rooms were larger than expected, we had our own bathroom (which was a surprise since they said on hostelworld that it was a shared one), the beds were super confortable and the hotel was quiet and in...

We needed to book a place at the eleventh hour to stay one night in Florence. Hermes' biggest plus was its location....literally 5 mins from Florence Santa Maria Novella station and the duomo complex and other attractions...pretty much everything is close. However, the room was a big surprise.....no complains about the size, but it wasn't clean, the bathroom is the... More

As I was visiting Florence for the very first time and arrived there after a long trip through the beautiful Tuscany, I was mainly aiming for a shower and a place to sleep. Not wanting to get lost that much and calling cabs to take me back to the hotel, I was looking for something as close as possible to... More

If you want a place to stay in Florence, it is not the best place, but is close to metro, the room is big and I think you won't have a problem. However, they have places to smoke inside the hotel what was not comfortable for me. You need to use a lot of stairs to go to your room... More

My boyfriend and I walked out of the Firenze SMN station after traveling via train for 48 hours from San Sebastián. Exhausted, we looked across the street, saw the "Hotel Hermes" sign, and immediately walked in. The owner greeted us with a warm smile, a brief history (of Florence and herself!), a map, and some truly wonderful restaurant recommendations. My... More
