“Great Location”
Reviewed 25 September 2010

We had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Silla for 1 night in August on a trip through Tuscany.

The hotel offers very good value!!

The hotel is located in a great location on the river, within minutes walk to all of the attractions of Florence.

The rooms were of a high standard for the low price and were clean & tidy. The hotel also has free wi-fi which is always a bonus!

The roof top terrace is lovely with great views of the city. The breakfast provided is great and it is such a beautiful setting of a morning with all of the flowers & views!

The staff were very friendly and nothing was a problem for them. We wanted to get to the prada outlets and the receptionist was kind enough to get the directions for us & ring the outlet to find out there trading hours. One of the other staff members also provided a great recommendation of a pizza restaurant which is within 100 m of the hotel. He was right .. the pizza was amazing!

Overall, the Hotel Silla, is very good value for money in a great location with friendly staff!!

The hotel location is a 10 minute walk to the centre of Florence and close to the Piazzali di Michaelangelo with its superb views of the city. The rooms are spacious and clean as are other areas of the hotel. The staff were all very pleasant and communicated in many different languages. Breakfast on the terrace was a perfect start to the day where you could sip cappucinos to your hearts content. The staff booked several activities on our request a cooking lesson and olive oil/winery tour as well as museum reservations.

The staff was responsive and answered our questions and got us museum reservations before we even arrived. They could not have been more helpful. OUr son needed a room last minute and was accommodated. The breakfast was generous and on a flower filled terrrace. A glass of wine or espresso was available anytime on the terrace as well.

A lovely small Hotel within walking distance of Ponte Vecchio, south of the Arno river, in practice walking distance to the most important tourist sights of the city. Very friendly and helpful, personnel, espescially in the reception, providing tips for places to go, routes to drive, etc., all in a very good English. Nice terrace for enjoying breakfast in the open. Room was clean and appeared quite newly renovated.

Set in a quiet location and staffed by friendly and courteous professionals, the hotel was a comfortable home base while we spent several days touring the city on foot. We particularly enjoyed the sumptuous breakfasts, served in a beautiful dining room or on a lovely deck filled with pots and pots of blooming flowers. Our room was spacious, bright, and quite comfortable. We highly recommend the Hotel Silla and look forward to our return.

It is the second time we have been there, and it is such a wonderful place. This time we drove and were able to park the car which is something you can't do on the street unless you are a resident of Florence. Their car park charge was much less ( almost half) of what other hotels charge.

We had a large family room which is quiet and relatively cool because it is at the back of the hotel. The most wonderful terrace on which to have breakfast. We sat out there one evening - ( I wish they did evening meals), but we were able to have a snack dinner (provided by ourselves from the small grocery store next door.)

The staff are all lovely, helpful and pleasant, we didn't need much help from them but you knew that they were up to the challenge.

I would heartily recommend this hotel to anyone, it is so well situated on the Oltrarno, and is only a few minutes walk to the Ponte Vecchio or Santa Croce for example, but far enough away for some peace and quiet after a long day of walking and sightseeing.

TV in the room and a mini bar, and you can put your food items in there if you need to, plus internet access, wonderful bathroom, everything you need in fact.

There was a bookshelf with people's left behind books, I borrowed a couple of guide books which was great.

I would have no reservation in recommending the Silla to anyone visiting Florence. In fact I can't wait to come back.

We felt that this hotel was a very good value for the money. The breakfast was very good, they offered a nice variety of fruit cheese pastries and even boiled eggs. We had a superior double room which was spacious and clean and nicely decorated. The service was good and the location was also good. It was a 15 - 20 minute walk to the Duomo with lots of shops along the way.
