Hotel Silla
Ranked #60 of 411 Hotels in Florence
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 October 2011

The Silla is a very well-run hotel with pleasant, comfortable rooms and a very helpful staff. The neighborhood of the hotel is within walking distance of most of the cultural attractions of Florence even though it is across the Arno from the noise and bustle. The fine buffet breakfast, included in the price of the room, is served on a lovely terrace. Nearby are very good restaurants and cafes. My husband and I enjoyed the Silla on two visits, and we would be very happy to stay there again.

The hotel is tricky to find, so if your not going there by taxi make sure you ask the hotel which bus stop is close by. We were welcomed by a snooty receptionist, so arrogant at first but when we asked for help he was more than happy to help. The older gentleman that worked night shift was so lovely and helpful he was probably the nicest worker in the hotel. The rooms are ok, good sized, quite clean and comfortable. The old lady serving breakfast is very rude, and clearly doesn't like working there, such attitude we saw! The location was fine for us, ten mins walk to michaelangelo square, and probably half hr walk into city, but it's a really nice walk. Bonus staying here was finding really good restaurant near by.

Most of the people who work here have been there for 10-20 and it shows. The location was wonderful. It was easy walking distance to everything including the Piazzale Michelangiolo. The security is good. I left a pair of glasses there and they sent them to me at no charge. The rooms were fine but they could use some updating. Colors are a bit drab but that's the only criticism. They were very clean and quiet and I loved my stay there. Would happily return.

Out of the 3 hotels we stayed at on our trip to Italy, this one was by far the worst. It was completely out of date. The flat screen TV mounted on the wall was completely out of place with the rest of the furniture. The bathroom was clean, but tiny and it was very noisy in the morning starting at about 5am as the staff prepared breakfast. it was also south of most of the sights in Downtown Florence, but since my husband and I are active people we did not mind the walk to get to the downtown area.
