"A Charming Hotel in Rome"
We stayed here in late October 2014, and had a great experience! The hotel is a block from the Rome metro, three blocks from Vatican City and in a great neighborhood. The rooms were spotless, clean and a nice size. If you're going to Rome this is the perfect hotel. It's affordable, clean, secure and in a great neighborhood. We went to the Papal Audience […] while there and had to be at Vatican City by 6 am. The hotel's proximity was a definite plus. Also, the front desk was very helpful in recommending non-touristy restaurants and helping us get around. We'll definitely be back to stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, convenient to the Vatican."
I stayed at the Hotel Silla while visiting my brother who is studying with St. John's University. The hotel was only a ten minute walk to his campus, it was close to the Vatican, and there was free wifi. I was set. Once there I loved it even more. The hotel was nice and safe, you had to be paged in, which comforted me. I was traving alone, so the room […] was small, but that is typical for European rooms. Everything was nice and clean, the hotel staff was friendly and helpful. I would love to go back to Rome in the future and would definitely look into staying there again.

"Good for the Money"
This hotel was excellent for the money. Very clean and within walking distance to the Vatican and the metro, and the neighborhood felt safe.We liked the smell of fresh baked goods form the bakery below. The rooms were small and the shower was very tiny, but like I said, for the money we made due. Our biggest complaint was that we were not able to connect […] to the internet. The code we were given provided us limited access, and so while we were connected to the server, the internet was unavailable. As that was my means of communication with my son, who was traveling in Paris, I was more than annoyed that my sense of urgency was met by a lack of concern by our hotel staff. :0( They did however, point me to a public computer a couple doors away. Also, they were excellent in helping us with booking a car for the return to the airport. If you are looking for a luxury hotel with many amenities, this is not for you. But if you are traveling on a budget and would like a clean and functional room with a private bathroom, then Hotel Silla fits the bill. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Good location. Clean hotel. Not the most comfortable bed not an impressive room but it will meet most basic needs. A good hotel if you don't mind a very basic accommodations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great experience at Hotel Silla"
I stayed at this hotel with my parents and my 9 month old baby. The staff was very friendly and helpful, they even had a crib set up in my room (additional fee though) and were able to provide me with hot water to prepare the bottle, every time I asked, and they set up a taxi to pick us up very early in the morning for my flight to London. Rooms are […] small as they are in most hotels in Europe, and I knew breakfast was not included, so my plan was to find a nice coffee shop to start my day with a cappuccino anyways. There is a pastry shop and pizzeria by the entrance, the smell of fresh croissants is to die for. The best aspect of this hotel is the location, it's around the corner from Ottaviano Metro Station, and there are great shops and restaurants near by. Ottaviano is 4 stops from Spanish Steps or Trevi Fountain. I had a great experience at this hotel and would stay here again if I visit Rome in the near future.

"Convenient Hotel In Rome"
I only stayed here for the night and it met my expectations. I had the single room which was very clean and the owners of the hotel were at the check-in desk were really nice. Only complaint is they did had air conditioner but no remote to turn it on which is the only way to turn on the air unit. The other complaint is that I paid the 2 euro Rome city […] tax when I arrived and when checking it out I had to pay again because the man at the reception did not have in his records that I paid which was very annoying. Even though its only 2 euros, its the purpose that I already paid and I had to pay again in order to leave. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Our room was clean. It was small but at a good location. The only BIG problem of this hotel is their very thin walls. We stayed at this hotel for two nights. We cloud clearly hear the voice of the neighbor room. For the first night they slept around noon so we could slept after that, but in the second day, three guys were in the room next to us. They […] were talking and laughing loud and the noise was such that they were in our room. Around 1AM we called front desk and told them that we can't sleep because of noise. Front desk call them and they apologized for that. We could simply hear all the conversations!! But after that they kept talking and laughing and they finally slept around 2AM!!!! When you are traveling and you have busy day, you need to rest, this is the the whole point of staying in a good hotel, If you can't even sleep at your room so why you are paying this much money for? I would never stay at this hotel again. It seems that they have converted an apartment to hotel with a fake walls. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was close to the Vatican and shopping, food etc. However, they did charge us 10 euros per night for air conditioning and 6 euros per person for breakfast each morning and the internet didn't work.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Friendly and helpful staff, clean room, great location. Decent price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean room, close to vatican, AC did not work"
I stayed in a one bed room, which was small but serviceable. The bathroom was quite large compared to other italian hotels I stayed during this trip. The staff was polite, and appreciated my attempts to speak in italian (we did not have to speak in English at all). There are only 3 things that detracted from my stay at the hotel: -The main one was […] that although I was there for 2 very hot days, the AC was turned off, and the remote control had been removed from my room. This meant that I had to sleep with the window open, which leads to the second problem: -The window of my room opened to an internal courtyard, which is shared by a bakery. Unfortunately, this meant that I could hear the bakers talking (loudly, of course) to one another all night long. Even with ear plugs, this was annoying. -The breakfast is very overpriced at 6 euro. For the first morning, I walked to a nearby bakery/café, where a croissant & a coffee set me back 2 euro. The morning I checked out, however, I decided to stay in to make my life easier. I was very dissapointed with the quality of the breakfast. If this hotel is well priced, it is worth the stay. It is very close to the vatican, and to a metro station (which I only used to get to and from the main train station). Walking from the hotel to the "old rome" part of town (Roman Forum, Colliseum, etc) takes about an hour to an hour and a half, but it is a nice walk. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Near the Vatican"
Our stay was ok, the room served its purpose...had to pay 10 Euro for the ac remote but it was well worth it! Only used the room to sleep/recharge/shower. Shower was extremely small but great pressure/temperature.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice and secure hotel very close to the Vatican"
I did not like that the hotel charge for continental breakfast 6 euros per person. I was not told about this charge until I check out. I had to pay 72 euros per continental breakfast. This was complementary at my other two Italy hotels. The hotel also charges 10 euros per air condition per day (40 euros total). I was under the impression when I signed […] in that the air condition and continental breakfast were included I recommend that 112 euros for continental breakfast and air conditioning be refund. In most hotel this cost are already included. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Everything good but WiFi won't work from the room!"
Everything with hotel Silla was great, its location specially. Only gripe I got was that the WiFi did not work from room. This was major pain as we needed it for booking museum tickets, airline web checking etc. The only way we could use it was to go down to reception. Hope they fix it soon.Genuine Expedia guest review

I and my brother stayed in this hotel for 3 days during our trip to Rome. It is a nice hotel in safe neighborhood in very close proximity to Vatican and walking distance to everything else.

"A well located cheap hotel that is ok"
Hotel Silla is a very basic, well located, clean, nice hotel. Our room itself was relatively small, but nice, with high ceilings. The showers had plenty of hot water and the staff was friendly and spoke decent English. If you were in a hurry, you could probably be on a train on metro line A just a few minutes after leaving your room (which means you […] could be in the heart of the city in ten minutes), and the Vatican is about a ten minute walk. In addition, the hotel is located in the same courtyard as a pasticceria, which means you'll be smelling fantastic cupcakes if you open your window. There was a clock in our room but it did not serve as an alarm, so we wished we had brought a small alarm clock. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very close to the Vatican"
Excellent service and great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Silla -- close to what you need"
The hotel has great security, is very clean and is close to the Vatican (about 6 blocks) and the subway (1 block). I had a tour booked that requried that I check in once I arrived in Rome. The person at the desk confirmed for me since he spoke Italian and made the process very simple. I particularly liked the tile floors as opposed to a dirty carpet […] I've had at other hotels. The rooms are not luxurious, but are very comfortable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Like in real state, the key in choosing a hotel is location. This one is a few meters away from the subway and a 7 minute walk from St. Peter's Basilica. The only thing is that the rooms are a bit small, but since one only uses the room to sleep, this is not an issue. With a friendly staff and convenient location, this hotel is a great place to stay […] in Rome. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good value hotel"
Great location for the price. Shame about the bakery on the ground floor. Our window faced the courtyard, and we were woken at 7am every morning by continuous shouting. The room was a good size and spotless. We booked a double and got a double bed and a small single bed, which we didn't need, but might be good for people travelling with a child. Lovely […] hot shower with good water pressure, but very small. It wasn't a problem for us, but if you're severely overweight, you may want to stay somewhere else.

"Great Location and accommodating staff" - Location is the best advantage of this hotel aside from many others. If one is tired from the site seeings, one can go back and take a nap or refresh for a while. In addition, going around other places other than in the Vatican is another advantage since the train station is just very near from the hotel. The […] hotel staff was very helpful every time we asked them what is the best to do. They suggested alternatives on how to go to different places and even going back to the airport. They arranged our transport when we want to roam around Rome and even to the airport. Although they are not serving breakfast before 8:00 one can avail of the cafe in the corner which serves fresh breads and coffee. For 10 euro breakfast for 3 person is not bad. On the right side of the hotel is a small Chicken restaurant (Restaurante di pollo) which is very affordable. Lunch or dinner cost us 13 to 15 euro for three person already while most restaurant charges 10 -15 per person. Most of all, I am very happy with the cleanliness of the room and the place itself. Although the towels have not been change until we left but it is ok with us as long as it is still clean. The rate per day is not that expensive compare to other in the area. All in all our experience in this hotel is great! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good, but small and a bit noisy"
This hotel is certaintly ideally placed if you want to see the Vatican, but for pretty much anything else, it's a bit far out unless you want to take the metro everywhere (I didn't want to - I'm wary of using the metro in Rome, it being a frequent target for pickpockets and thieves). The hotel itself is small but clean. The staff were a mixed bunch […] - I dealt with one member of staff who was so nice and polite, spoke perfect English and was happy to help, one who spoke English but was the grumpiest, surliest man I've met, and another who seemed nice, but spoke no English at all. Luckily I know a smattering of Italian so I was able to make myself understood to her. I expected my room to be small, but that was really tiny! Next time, I'd think about enquiring after a double room with single occupancy. The rooms themselves have really thin walls - I could hear everything the couple next door were saying, and I was right over a courtyard where there was a screaming child every single night. Not so good when I'd been up at 6:30 to get to the colosseum and I wanted an early night, or a bit of a lie-in in the morning. There are plenty of places to eat in the vicinity - Ragno d'Oro is a bit more high-class (and expensive), or just around the corner there were my favourite two places to eat - Amalfi and Rende-Vous Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Friendly. Clean. Good base"
Travelled to Rome in June with a friend and used this hotel as a place to sleep and recharge for sightseeing. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, willing to give advise on getting around. The room was clean and in the morning you could smell baking from the wholesale patisserie downstairs. It is also a good base - walking distance to the Vatican. […] The Metro - Ottaviana (Line A) is just outside and gets you to the spanish steps, trevi fountain and termini. This should be a three star hotel. Tip: Exchange rates at money exchanges are not great though found 2 outside termini near tram stop with decent rates. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very convenient! Made our holiday more enjoyable.."
The room was spacious and clean. It had marble flooring and en suite bathroom with hair dryer. The room/bed was comfortable and very relaxing as it is quiet. Good for couples and families(in the room next to us was a family with a baby). The location is superb!it was close to the metro (ottaviano) and close to the Vatican grounds. There are a lot of […] restaurants,convenience stores, internet cafes, and clothes shops around. It made our tour convenient and easy. Desk staff was very helpful also in terms of helping us navigate around Rome. One chambermaid was not very good in english but understandable; she was very helpful and reliable though. Wifi was good, not much 11pm onwards but during the day it is ok. They upkeep of the room was done daily and left very tidy. Lifts are available as well so very convenient. Will stay here everytime I go back to Rome. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A good 2 star hotel"
I've stayed here for a couple of days after christmas & new years. It's a good 2 stared hotel. The Staff is quite friendly and helpful. The hotel is quite clean, which gives a feeling that it's like combined from several apartments within a building. The rooms were very clean. However the sheets could have been a bit better quality, and also the towels! […] If I'm complaining about the towels (which were like bed sheets), you should figure out that there's not so much to complain about this place :) The room was well heated as well. Maybe the downside, there was no mini-fridge. Everything else was fine. The main reason why you're possibly checking this place out, is because of the location. The location seems to be in a middle-high class neighbourhood, so it's quite quite safe (also being next to the Vatican helps!). Since the Vatican is walking distance and so is the metro, the hotel is located in a convinient place. BUT, this doesn't help once you want to go to the - e.g. Trevi fountain, Pantheon, etc...- 'old part of town', you might get stuck in taking a metro and walking, or just walking from the Vatican. Discovering Rome by foot is the best way, but if you are not keen of walking that much, you may not find this hotel the best located place to stay at. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Ottima la posizione, in una via laterale e quindi tranquillo soprattutto di notte. A 50 metri dalla stazione metro Ottaviano. A due minuti da Piazza San Pietro e i Musei Vaticani. Posizione eccellente per spostarsi velocemente in Roma. Grazie alla Metro tutti i luoghi di maggior interesse sono facilmente raggiungibili.

"Comodo hotel ottima posizione"
Hotel due stelle meglio di molti 3 e anche 4 stelle della capitale: nella camera prenotata (una quadrupla con tutti letti veri, non brandine o divani) non vi era nulla fuori posto o non funzionante, dal telecomando del grande e moderno tv a schermo piatto a tutte le lampadine, non un rubinetto che perdesse una goccia d'acqua, o un porta asciugamani […] o portasapone traballante o polvere o peli da qualche parte (ebbene si mi è capitato in un 4 stelle di Roma di trovare capelli sulle lenzuola), tutto perfettamente tenuto in ordine e funzionante. Non so della colazione che non era compresa nel prezzo, ma è presente un laboratorio di pasticceria al piano terra dell'edificio e vi sono bar e un buon ristorante (Al Ragno D'oro) nelle immediate vicinanze. Quando tornerò a Roma cercherò di sicuro di soggiornare presso questo più che decoroso hotel che ben merita la stellina in più. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
