We stayed for 3 nights for our first visit to Rome. Our room was a good size double very clean and comfortable. It is a simple hotel but we were only sleeping there as you are out and about all day.

Only a 5 minute walk from the Vatican and St Peter's square. There is a metro stop around the corner very accessable.

The staff were helpful when asked questions and did speak English. Could be abrupt but this is rhe general Roman Italian manner!

I would recommend Hotel Silla to anyone going to Rome.
The restaurant just down the street is fantastic. Full of locals, food is excellent!

I and my brother stayed in this hotel for 3 days during our trip to Rome. It is a nice hotel in safe neighborhood in very close proximity to Vatican and walking distance to everything else. Room was small but nice and clean; restroom - normal size though shower cabin was prety small but manageable for tall person :). Wi-fi, TV in the room for no additional charge; staff pleasant. Would stay there again.

Had a great time in Rome, and the hotel was kind, friendly, clean and above all expectations! The pastry shop on the ground floor was amazing! The beds were nice and firm, The shower was top notch,
We arrived late with two tired babies and and cranky teenager, but were treated like royalty all through the three night stay!

I was desperate in my last minute search for a hotel in Rome and stumbled upon Hotel Silla. Upon reading the reviews, I thought I'd give it a shot.

We stayed in Hotel Silla for 6 nights and it was good! The room may be small and no breakfast was included in the price. But it located in a good and safe neighbourhood with lots of nearby cafes and restaurants. It was also a stone's throw away from the Metro and a 5 min walk to the Vatican City. The hotel was clean and we totally enjoyed our stay there. There was a patisserie just down below and we woke up every morning to the lovely smell of whatever they were baking downstairs!

I give it top marks for location too!

Just a little note. If you need air-conditioning, you'll have to pay extra. The show area is really, really tiny, so not advisable if you are really huge. It can be a little noisy if you have rooms facing the courtyard cos the patisserie opens quite early.

There's free wifi but can be a little dodgy. Other than that, it was great!

The hotel recommended us a typical roman trattoria just down the road called Ragno D'oro. It serves amazing local, homecooked dishes. And we reckon the food's really good cos it was packed EVERY NIGHT with locals! We went back there almost every day of our stay in Rome! Good recommendation!

We have just stayed in Hotel Silla for 9 days and really enjoyed our time there. The staff were very helpful and friendly - Stefano on reception was very welcoming, gave useful
advice and we were grateful his English was so good as our Italian was very limited!
Ottaviano metro was very close to the hotel - just around the corner and so we could get into the centre of town in about 15 minutes. There were also cafes, restaurants and wine bars a few minutes walk away. There was a bakery sharing a courtyard with the hotel so I especially liked the lovely aroma of freshly baked pastries in the mornings!


away for breakfast

My family and I were in Rome for a relative's wedding in the Vatican, and Hotel Silla is in a great location for that. Besides the wedding, we also visited the Vatican twice (once for the museum and the Sistine Chapel, and the second time to visit St. Peter's Basilica). Hotel Silla is within walking distance of the Vatican, and it only took us about 10 minutes or so to get there.

Our room itself was pretty basic. You have to pay extra to get the remote control to turn on your air-conditioning, the shower is really small, the towels are as thin as sheets, and the bed is very hard (not a bad thing necessarily if you have a bad back like me. Most people wouldn't find the beds comfortable, though). The walls are super thin, so just keep that in mind, especially if you have family staying in adjacent rooms (you can hear each other coughing, and you could probably make out what they're saying if you tried hard enough). People in other rooms get upset if you knock on another room's door more than once because they can hear everything!

The room was pretty clean, though, and the staff was fairly friendly. In Rome, you'll probably be out all day sightseeing, so you're not in your room that much, anyway.
