“Another gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

This was a real find. Nice to be away from the center of Florence, but so convenient. The rooms and the breakfast//terrace amenities were great, but the staff of this Hotel are the real selling point for this location. So helpful, professional and highly amusing while addressing any issue immediately. The reception and terrace staff are exceptional.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the tub, just for the pleasure of a long soak after a day of touring.

I spent a week here and it was way too short thanks to the wonderful staff, especially Claudio and Stefano at reception and hard working, cheerful Laura in the breakfast room. They were all professional, friendly, and amazingly helpful including the nameless other employees we encountered. My room was fantastic with an incredible view over the river. The air con worked well. The room was impeccable, spacious, and we'll-appointed. The neighborhood was perfect. It was quiet, yet very close to all the major attractions. I have run out of positive adjectives to describe my wonderful experience at Hotel Silla. Mille grazie a tutti! If I return to Florence, I couldn't possibly stay anywhere else. One more thing, the pricing is extremely reasonable considering all you get.

Couldn't have been more happy with hotel. Forgot to make reservations to see David and they worked their magic and got us in. They also let me in early for breakfast when I had to catch a tour. Had everything you need and great location on the river. Wish we had more time to spend there and would happily stay here again.

5 nights here just couldn't have been more perfect. View, staff, service, location and cleanliness. Great breakfast on a beautiful, flower-filled terrace. Terrace also a great vantage point for sampling those exquisite bottles of super Tuscan reds you've picked up from Chianti. Grocery store nearby for staples & picnic samplers. Location is an advantage because the view is quite spectacular without the crowds. Lots of maps, directions and reservation service. Usually stay in town it will ask for room 22 again. Room with a view is perfect.

We spent three nights here. It's a little old, but a great place to stay. Breakfast was good, we sat on the terrace late afternoon drinking some wine while enjoying a view of the city, and it is an easy walk to all if the attractions in downtown florence. We would stay here again.

Our first time in Florence, and we could not have been more surprised by our stay in this historic building. The view from the front of the hotel was great, you have the river and the beautiful buildings across the river, the bell towers that you not only see, but hear ringing and ringing.

The breakfast was good, unfortunately, the terrace was not open yet to enjoy your breakfast out there, but we did and were able to sit outside and enjoy some wine with our traveling friends.

I would certainly not only return to Florence but would stay at the Silla again. The staff was friendly, helpful and very accommodating.

Room Tip: If you stay in the rooms that face the back or side of the building, expect a little noise until the...

All rooms and bathrooms were spacious, clean, comfortable, and quiet. Hotel Silla is ideally situated on the Oltrarno and was within walking distance of all we planned to see in Firenze. The terrace was a great place to relax with a bottle of wine and see the magnificent, views on the other side of the river, also with spectacular views if the Ponte Vecchio. Staff was very friendly and well informed. Will very happily stay here again and recommend it to all planning to visit this beautiful city.
