This hotel is in a great location. It's just a short walk to Boboli Gardens, Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi and Museo Galileo. An easy walk to the Duomo and the Piazza Della Republica. Being on just the other side of the Arno River from many of the main attractions makes it a little quieter while still being close. Our triple bedroom had a small alcove area that our 9 year old daughter thought was delightful. She loved having her own space and the rest of the room was huge too! The staff were polite and kind. Someone was always willing to get you a glass of wine from the bar in the late afternoon or help you book a day trip out of the city.

Great location with very good service. I think the bellman/barman/coincierge was Marco. He was great.

It is across the river from the main part of town, which is good since it is quieter and it is a lovely walk to town along the River Arno.

They have a lovely deck that over looks the river (if the trees are not too thick). It is a great place to unwind after a day of seeing the sights.

Room Tip: Get one facing the river. The breeze comes in that way.

Great location, service, and breakfast! Our room was very large and comfortable. We walked all around Florence from our hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and I will recommend this hotel to friends coming next summer.

We are four adults who shared a room for 3 nights in Silla Hotel. The hotel is located across the river, so it is a little further away from everything, but it turned out to be nice to go back to a quieter area after a long day of walking. Also, even though it is further away from the center of Florence, there are still fantastic bars and restaurants right next door and around the corner. Our room was on the 4th floor, and there is a small elevator. The room was very comfortable and clean and very quiet at night. The bathroom had a full bath tub which we did not get to have in any of the other hotels on our 2 week trip to Europe. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast on the terrace was very filling and included juices, really good coffee, croissants, crackers, pastries, fruit, yogurt, eggs, cheese and meats. One night we brought a bottle of wine and borrowed wine glasses from the bar for a night on the terrace, which was really nice. The weather was pretty hot when we were there and then air conditioning worked great. I would definitely recommend staying here and if I am back in Florence I plan to stay at Silla Hotel again.

On the "other" side of the river and a 10 min gorgeous stroll into the "centre". It captivated a lot of what is so wonderful about Florence. i would be interested in what the building was previously in fact as it was quite an interesting look. We were made to feel very welcome and had the apartment with our own entrance in the beautiful courtyard, more like our own house and amazing space and feel.( the hotel had some scaffold up and repair work going on , without that it would have got top marks) The breakfast on the top terrace was good and set you up until gelato time! Very relaxed feel and parking was a bonus. It was a 3 star but very comfortable. Would return really enjoyed the peaceful area it was in.

We stayed at the Silla for a few nights while in Florence. The location is superb, just a few minutes walk from the famous bridge with endless restaurants and bars nearby. Breakfast on the outdoor terrace was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. Our room was very spacious and clean and not overpriced for the location as well. Secure parking available which is a huge bonus for such a central location. Will stay here on our next visit!!

Just returned from a 2 week trip in Italy. This hotel was in a great location. Just around the corner from the studio of grafitti artist, Clet. Next to Vivaldi Gelatateria (best gelato in the neighborhood), La Beppa Fioraia & Alimenti Mescita di Vini (good eats) are nearby and its just a short walk to Piazzale Michelangelo, Uffizi, and Palazzo Vecchio. Stay here! It's quiet and secure. Great staff and breakfast is always lovely! #CostumeJinx
