I read about Hotel Silla through Rick Steve's and viewed their web site. Making reservations online was very simple and they responded immediately to confirm. They also made reservations for museums and tours without any problems and accommodated any special requests. The hotel staff was all friendly and warm helping us with directions, places to eat and making reservations for... More

We stayed at the Hotel Silla on the recommendation of an acquaintance who lives in Florence. The location is ideal--close to all the attractions, but on the quiet side of the Arno. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the room was generous and very clean. We were in a room on the back of the hotel where there... More

I stayed in hotel Silla for one week in April 2008, and loved every moment. The hotel is beautiful, as in an old palace, and the rooms are very nice and comfortable, Breakfast is very good, fresh and includes eggs, cereals, yoghurt, fruit, toast, cheese etc. The location of Silla is excellent, because you can easily walk everywhere to the...

I had booked this hotel and noticed that they said they would charge the first night. When I arrived it was a two elevator ride to my room. It was a very long walk to a not very nice room I also noticed that I would have to walk two blocks then cross a bridge every morning to get to... More

Based on reviews in TripAdvisor, we booked this hotel for six nights for a holiday in April 2008. We were certainly very happy with our experience there. As many other reviews have said, the staff at the Hotel Silla are brilliant. Every one of them are friendly and helpful. We booked our stay about six weeks in advance, and asked... More

Me and my boyfriend booked Silla by Venere, based on TripAdvisor reviews and we couldn't have been happier! We went to Florence in order to celebrate our 7th year "anniversary" and we wanted to book a hotel that was both special and affordable (we are, after all, students and we don't have that much money and we wanted to splurge...

After about 30 trips to Florence, I wished to stay on the other side of the Arno. Made a good choice. Though weather was awful most of the week, my room, though quite small was cozy and always clean. Breakfast was very good and the desk was very helpful for any request. I heartily recommend the Silla.

Great location in the very quiant San Niccolo neighbourhood; just accross the Arno and the main centre of Florence, very easy enjoyable walk to all the major sites, but you enjoy the setting of a true Florentinian residential neighbourhood. Great pizza restaurant on the same street as well as two great coffe/bar places next door. Pharmacy and small grocery store... More

My husband and I spent 5 nights in this hotel. We wanted to stay in the Oltrarno district of Florence to get a feel for Italian life in this city outside of the city center. The hotel is located across the Ponte alle Grazie and a block off a busy street on the Via dei Renai. You can access the... More
