Hotel Hermes
Ranked #349 of 410 Hotels in Florence
Reviewed 8 July 2011

I would sincerely recommend take into consideration this small, but extremely nice hotel. It is located closely to the Central Station. It really took me 2 minutes to find it after the train.
Starting with neatly-furnished rooms, attractive rates, free Wi-Fi access, perfect location and finishing with very welcoming, helpful staff, it seems to be a wise choice when enjoying Florence. The owner is a very elegant, always smiling, really caring about her guests lady - Ms. Patrizia.

And thank you, Patrizia, for your hospitality and wisdom;)
I will return)
BR,
Ellen

The hotel is in such a great location, couple of minutes walk from the main train/ bus station, the staff are simply wonderful and super friendly, you would adore Patricia, she speaks English the best, and such a helpful wonderful person, price is not expensive at all, and very clean room, very stable and fast internet connection ( free of charge), all in all, this should be your destination hotel !

Room Tip: Ask for rooms 1 or 2, closest to the wireless !

The location is just 10 mins walk from the main train station. It was perfect for us as we arrived by train. It is a small hotel without elevator and therefore we had to drag the luggage all the way up. It is pretty normal in B&Bs and small hotels in Italy anyway. Patricia, as many others mentioned, was very friendly in giving us tips on where to go. The size of the room was unexpectedly spacious. The small TV was installed quite high up (under their tall celing) and we almost missed finding it. The bathroom towels they provided are quite different - 100% cotton towel that are similar to our tea towels. Interesting. However they are very clean and new... like their bedsheets.

The breakfast was simple: a great cappuccino, toasted bun with jam; yogurt and a package of store-bought cake.

The only issue for us was about the noise. We could hear people coming in and going out; opening and shutting their doors. Their portable AC unit was strong however was also very noisy too.

Overall our stay at the hotel Hermes was a good one. It is across the street from the main train station and within walking distance of all the main things to see in Florence. The rooms was quite basic. Our room was on the street and therefore was very noisy with the window open which was needed as it was quite hot otherwise. The hosts were awesome, making great suggestions of things to see and places to eat (all without commercial bias). The prices were very affordable

Patricia, the owner, as others have said is absolutely wonderful. Even before we went to stay there, she offered lots of advice on sightseeing options and made reservations for us to the main attractions (saving us waiting in huge queues). When we arrived, she gave suggestions for different restaurants to try (including a fantastic pizza place) and where to go to pick up provisions for simple picnic lunches (to save some money) and other essentials (a close by small supermarket).

Breakfast, although simple, was freshly toasted bread and made-to-order coffee/tea/hot chocolate.

Although basic, the room we stayed in was clean and had an attached bathroom, which although small, did the job. A perfect base to go exploring Florence, very easily achieved on foot. Great place to stay, made absolutely fantastic by Patricia.
