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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.

“Ask for rooms on the same floor as the reception to avoid climbing many stairs as there are three flights of steps to the reception itself.”
