Hotel Silla is a 3 star hotel situated in an elegant 16th-century building in Florence. The historical Palazzo Demidoff-Amici was originally built in the 15th century as the residence of the wealthy Russian family of the same name, who later became protagonists of the Florentine cultural scene in the 19th century. Home of famous astrologer Giovanni Battista Amici, during the 20th century the building was used firstly as a leisure association for Allied troops, and then, after careful restoration in 1964 it passed to the Belotti family, which furnished it as a guesthouse before transforming it into a welcoming 3 star hotel in Florence in the 1980’s. The hotel’s rooms are elegantly appointed with great attention to detail, set in a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere combined with the warm welcome provided by friendly family management. In addition to the 24 hour reception and the splendid breakfast room decorated with antique furniture, Hotel Silla offers guests a large terrace with a suggestive view of the River Arno, complete with seats and sunshades, where flowering trees offer precious shade in the summer months.
