This is a charming hotel in a great location, within walking distance of many of the major attractions in Florence. One of the best gelato shops in Italy is just steps away. The staff is friendly and accommodating - they made reservations for us at a great restaurant prior to our arrival, and they are able to summon taxis within minutes. Breakfasts are great, and coffee and hot water for tea are always available. The views from the rooms are amazing. Elevator service is available.

Great location, good room accommodations, and amazing staff. I would definitely recommend and look forward to returning.

Hotel was great! Good accommodations, good location (walking distance to the bridge on the other side of the Orno River), and good complimentary continental breakfast).

We really enjoyed this hotel. It is not luxurious, but comfortable. The location is excellent for the price - just across the river and close to the bridge. We could easily walk everywhere - about 15 minutes to the Duomo - 10 to the Uffizi. The rooms were spacious and attractive with nice views. The breakfast is nice - we ate outdoors every morning in a covered patio area and found it to be a really enjoyable way to start the day. There are several casual restaurants close by that were good. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful in getting our museum reservations. We would definitely stay here again.

We had high expectations for the Hotel Silla and staying in it for three nights. For the most part our expectations were met. When we arrived, they gave us a very small room which we thought did not merit three stars, however they changed it without our asking the next day and moved our baggage to a much larger and very nice room. The rest of the stay went well and without incident. The night attendant, [...], was extremely knowledgable about Florence and Italy and particularly about art and restaurants. His suggestion of the Omera Restaurant on Michelangelo Hill resulted in the very best meal of our two week Tuscany vacation. The location of Hotel Silla is quite nice and quiet. The Terrace overlooks a nice little park and would be very pleasant except for the pidgeons which they battle constantly. I would recommend this hotel and I would return to it again unquestionably.
