Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Good blend of quaint Italian style with warm and efficient service. Location is good, particularly if arriving by car and you want to avoid driving in to the old city. Parking is convenient and secure.

We enjoyed the breakfasts both inside and on the last day on the terrace as the weather permitted.

Shower was small in our room but quite adequate for our needs for a couple of nights. Our room overlooked the breakfast terrace and the small park between the hotel and the Arno river.

Our travelling companion needed to complete some paperwork for a longer stay in Italy and one of the staff spent some time providing much appreciated assistance.

Will happily stay here again if we are fortunate to return to Florence.

I traveled to the Hotel Silla with my husband and all of our children. We took 4 rooms for 4 nights in July 2013. The hotel was recommended to me by a friend who travels often to Firenze and has stayed here for many years. Laura and I had been in contact via email for months. When we arrived at about 11am, we were greeted like family! Our rooms were ready very shortly, and our museum tickets were waiting for us. In addition to our transfers from the train station, and to the airport, Laura had also helped to arrange a car service for our last day in Italia. Our day was extraordinary. The driver Gabriel was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. The hotel staff was the same. Always helpful and capable. Can't wait to go back!

We had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Silla in late Sept./2013. While the exterior was undergoing some renovations, the rooms were modern, clean and quite comfortable.
The location was most convenient being just across the Arno from the old city centre and only a short walk away from the Ponte Vecchio bridge.
Their breakfast was very good and served on a rooftop terrace.
The front desk staff were most friendly and extremely helpful in sorting out an issue with our rental car.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Florence area.

Hotel Silla is a realy lovely Hotel in a perfect place of Florence. The breakfast is very good. A varied choice of contenental and American. Our room was very clean and up to date, A very tastefully done theme throughout. The price was amazing for Italy, Free parking also, We were driving a Ford Kuga 4x4 which is quite a large car but always had plenty of room. Takes about 10 minutes to stroll into town/Ponte Vechio ect. I would recommend this hotel to anybody but would suit couples better I think. On booking this Hotel it came in much cheaper than the rest so we were not expecting very much to be honest. What a lovely suprise we had when we arrived,, Fantastic. Great, Attentive staff who were always willing to help even with our Italian lessons. Many thanks :-)

This hotel is great for both.A few minutes from the Ponte Vecchio and almost opposite the Uffizi Gallery. The hotel does charge for parking(€19 per night) but it was worth it.
Big old style building with plenty of character.
Small bedroom but clean and comfortable.
Free coffee is provided throughout the day in a communal area with an open air terrace.Breakfast is also served here (weather permitting). Best cup of tea I had throughout our stay in Italy. Reasonable choice of cold buffet.Helpful staff,as we found throughout our visit to Tuscany.

This hotel is very cute. Located right between Ponte Vecchio and Piazzola De Michelangelo (which has best panoramic view of the city, btw)

The staff is very attentive. We got a room with a view of the terrace where one can have breakfast in the morning. Speaking of breakfast, we loved it. Great assortment and delicious espresso.

Finally, there are many great restaurants nearby. Our favorite was Zeb, which was recommended by Salvo, one of our concierges.

We hope to stay at Hotel Silla again on our next visit.

This hotel was ideally located to see the sights of Florence. Initially, we thought we would have a better view on a higher floor but realized the park across the way prevented seeing the river or the sights. That didn't matter as we were out and about enjoying the city most of the time. The staff were great about recommending restaurants and reserving ones we had researched. They also helped with obtaining tickets to galleries and booking the walking tour we went on. The only criticism I would make was the shower. It had a thin plastic curtain that was blown inward by the bathroom fan. I would suggest that a heavier weighted plastic curtain would be more comfortable if this is needed in a handicapped designated room (we are not handicapped ourselves). We enjoyed the outdoor deck for breakfast and for breaks from sightseeing.

Room Tip: We had #14 and it was designated handicapped. I would have liked another room only because I did not...
