Laura and the staff at Hotel Silla were fabulous. The location is perfect, close walking distance to the Ponte Vecchio, Doumo, Uffizi, etc.. right across the Arno in a quieter section of Florence, away from all of the traffic and crowds. The hotel rooms were clean, well appointed (free wifi, minibar, comfortable beds as far as European standards go). The staff was stellar - made reservations for us ahead of time at museums, and helped us with anything we needed. Breakfast on the terrace was great - good selection of meats/cheeses/hard boiled eggs/pastries and delicious chocolats. Would definitely stay here again.

Again, this hotel came with our package so we didn't know what to expect. Upon arriving, we were told our room wasn't ready but minutes later the front desk said one of the rooms might be available. He showed us to room #6 and right when we stepped inside, it had this horrible smell!!! It was really bad so we asked to be moved. They said we can upgrade our room for 45 euros a night. I didn't care at this point as long as I don't have to stay inside that room for another minute.

Location wise, the hotel is on the other side of the river from all the places. To walk there is about 15-20 minutes. There's a mini market a few doors down if you need to pick up things.

The people are nice there but don't expect no 3 stars hotel as how they are rated here on tripadvisor. I would pay a little more and stay closer to everything else on the other side of the river.

Try to make reservation at 4leoni for dinner. We had the BEST meal here from our trip to Italy. Is about 15 minutes walk from the hotel. Make sure you call ahead for reservation and ask to be seated outside.

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.
