Traveling with RICK STEVES ITALY tour in October 2013, found us in three hotels the tour package offered. The Silla in Florence was one of note as all three were clearly excellent values. Location, as we know, is everything in successful travel experiences. These tours require lots of walking...miles and miles a day, so a great location is key. This location gets you away from the crowds but quick access to the important sites. The Silla offered a beautiful bath with nice appointments...little counter space for your make-up and toiletries. As with many mid-level European hotels, the baths are recent additions and are often raised (plumbing) and the showers can be about phone booth size but you are not spending a great deal of time there. Comfortable, clean, nice linens and towels. Twin beds, only one chair, no frig, huge windows overlooking a quaint alley...we had Room #4 off the lobby with easy access to bar and breakfast room. We highly recommend. Oh, great grocery is just up the street and offers super fresh foods and great local wines and saves you a ton. Ciao!
