Located in the Oltrarno neighborhood on the south side of the Arno River, the Hotel Silla exudes an old-fashioned charm that we fell for immediately. It’s every bit the three stars it claims to be, with a lovely 15th-century courtyard, modern amenities and higher rates to match. Silla's picturesque location and pretty decorative touches make it a good pick if you're in the mood to splurge.
The 36 rooms sport damask walls and classic Florentine style. The color scheme is a mix of baby blue, gold and yellow. Some rooms boast sigh-inducing views of the river. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, satellite TV, a minibar, telephone and free Wi-Fi. Bathrooms are medium-sized with soft grey and white tiles.
Blue parlor sofas and grandmotherly chairs grace the charming common area. The walls are done up in damask and sophisticated artwork, and the bar leads to a terraced seating area with views of the river. The staff is formal yet friendly. (This is a fancy place and it shows!)
Breakfast is included in the room rate.

About the Hotel Silla neighborhood
The glorious Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens make their home in Oltrarno, which literally means "beyond the Arno river." Cross over Ponte Vecchio, and into the only chaotic street in this otherwise tranquil, residential area. The bars around Piazza Santo Spirito are popular aperitivo places with the Florentines, and far more casual than the cafés and bars on the other side of the Arno.
