I had stayed at Hotel Silla on a bicycle tour 16 years ago. This time, I was there for a continuing education "conference". I liked the hotel the first time, but this time, I came away thinking that this will be my home base for every future visit to Firenze (one of my favorite destinations in Europe). Massimo and Claudio provided a warm welcome, and check-in was easy. The room was clean, reasonably large by standards of other hotels where I have stayed in Firenze and Roma, and even had a bathtub. The staff was friendly and efficient, and always ready to help. Breakfast (after the education sessions ended at 10:15 am) was wonderful, with fresh fruit, eggs, croissants, yogurt, cheese and salami, and of course, caffe (espresso) beverages on request. The outdoor terrace is a wonderful setting for breakfast, or to hang out over a glass of wine after a day of exploring the art, architecture and culture of Firenze. As a bonus, Massimo and Claudio were both very helpful in permitting me to utilize the phone to straighten out a problem that I had in obtaining cash. Oh yes, the location cannot be beaten, very close to the historic center, but on the quiet side of the Arno. I will definitely be back, and I recommend Hotel Silla highly.
