“just want you want”
Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

We was on a 2 night site seeing trip to Florence. Having booked this hotel through an agent I did not know much about it. Before I arrived I looked on the map and thought this was a fair distance from the centre, however when arriving i was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is less then a 10 minute walk into the centre.

Just what you need and value for money. Very friendly staff who speak very good English. Only 35 rooms so they recognise you which gives its a personal touch.

The room is very spacious and has free WiFi. After staying in a few different hotels on our trip the bathroom and shower was a nice touch compared to others we experienced. The hotel has a lovely terrace where you can enjoy a nice drink looking over the river and city after a long day site seeing. They also offer free tea coffee and cakes when you sit there.

If I was to return to Florence I would stay there again.

Stayed April 2014, travelled as a couple

We loved this place. Upon arrival I discovered I had left my passport in Rome and the staff was so helpful in tracking it down for me and advising me what to do. In four hours my passport was back in my hands and I was able to enjoy the rest of my vacation. The room was beautifully decorated and spotless. Breakfast was fabulous and we were close to everything, we would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

Parking is ~20/night, but you don't have to drive into Florence which makes things easier.
Hotel is well maintained. Odd decoration in the room we stayed in, but over all clean with a nice bathroom. Nice deck out looking onto the Arno. Quiet with a good breakfast. Dog friendly.

Just spent 4 nights here with the family. Very friendly staff, always pleased to help, such as when we needed to borrow an adaptor. Family room (sleeps 4) has wonderful view over the terrace and on towards the river. Decent breakfast (including cold meats, cheese, freshly baked rolls and croissants) and don't forget to ask for the cappuccino! Hotel is 2 mins away from bridge into city centre, and 5-10 mins from the shops and restaurants around Ponte Vecchio. We would definitely return there on another occasion.

I think this hotel can not be beat for the price. The location is excellent - just a short walk to the Ponte Vecchio and even closer to Santa Croce. There is parking available for those crazy enough to drive into Florence.... which I tend to do from time to time. The staff is wonderful and Laura is a gem. They go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. I've stayed here many times and it seems that no two rooms are identical, which I love. River views are naturally ideal - especially in the fall, winter and spring when the trees in the adjacent park are neatly trimmed, and since you are on the other side of the Arno, the whole city lies before you. The buzz of the motorscooters is more prevalent in the river-view rooms - adding to the charm of Florence. This hotel is an excellent discovery.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the river are a tad noiser on weekends due to the "club" a few doors away.

Friends who live in Lucca recommended Silla Hotel. What an amazing experience! Wonderful staff, super room and a nice breakfast included! The hotel is located near the Ponte Vecchio and is within an easy walk to all the points of interest in Florence. We shall definitely return -- and also recommend it to all of our friends.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms with a view of the Arno River
