“Our room was the size of a shoebox”
Reviewed 8 February 2011

We stayed at the Savoy Hotel on the weekend of the Ireland v Italy rugby match 4th and 5th February 2011. Our room 320 was by far the smallest room we have ever stayed in. The tv was in the wardrobe , if you needed to open the wardrobe door , it slid across in front of the tv. There was 20" between the end of the really hard beds and the wall!! The breakfast was ok. We would not recommend this hotel.

Hotel was flexible, even though my internet direct booking was for the wrong dates. They had rooms available and was happy to change my bookings, and allowed me to check in early (I arrive in the morning).

Very Friendly and helpful staff.

Location wise, its very convenient, as others have pointed out it is close Metro and also attractions like Trevis fountain and Spanish Steps.

My only complaint was that the bathtub stopper in my room was not maintained well, my bathtub was full of water when I showered.

Other than that, I had a very pleasant stay and would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

Could not fault from booking direct with the hotel , to arrival with welcome drinks,breakfast was everything you could want,drinks on the fabulous roof terrace - dinner in hotel. All excellent .Very friendly and welcoming staff especially Alexandra - also desk arranged a taxi back to the airport for a fee of 50 euros. When they realised it was a special birthday we returned to bubbly for two in the room!! Would highly recommend the hotel and the location could not be better.

We had our wedding reception at the Hotel Savoy, which had the most amazing views over Rome. The meal itself was outstanding, and the wedding cake that was served - was to die for, and that’s mostly down to the credit of Aldo and his staff who effortlessly and flawlessly catered for all our guests needs. After our experience, we have no reservations in recommending this venue to anyone who wishes for an intimate wedding reception, with stunning views, beautiful surroundings, fantastic food, excellent wine, great music and staff who made sure that no one went without at all times and did so in a manner that no one sensed that they were there unless required. Brilliant management Aldo.

Rome and the Hotel Savoy was our last stop on a two week adventure through Switzerland and Germany. After staying in small, "no frills" hotels, The Hotel Savoy offered some of the luxurious comforts of home we had missed - namely a generous sized (by European standards) bathroom, large bed and a spacious (by European standards) room. The room was clean and maid service was dependable during our three-day stay. This reminded me of an American chain hotel with multiple floors and hundreds of rooms, a stark contrast to the boutique hotel experience during the rest of our trip. The Hotel Savoy's location was great with a Taxi stand located nearby for those who want to catch a cab and was a short (10 - 15 minute) walk to the Spanish Steps. The hotel's location is near a variety of large chain hotels (Intercontinental, Westin, etc.) and seemed to be a bit of a tourist haven, but it was not difficult at all to get off the beaten path for a more authentic experience, and still enjoy centrally-located lodging. The staff was consistently attentive, friendly and all spoke impeccable English. The staff provided very helpful guidance in what can be a very confusing city. The breakfast was nicely appointed and offered a variety of items. It was convenient, but if you are searching for a truly delicious Italian breakfast, I would skip the hotel breakfast and venture out into the city to enjoy local cuisine. The breakfast food wasn't particularly special, just convenient and not quite satisfying for the price. Internet was available in a small business center (3 computers) but we were too busy sightseeing to ever take advantage of it. The room was suprisingly quiet, and had windows that effectively drowned out the street noise. I can't there are any quiet hotels in Rome, but this one fit the bill. Overall, I would definitely recommend the Hotel Savoy for its great location and amenities.

The room is small comparing to the usual one I stay in Italy, and the room they gave me was on the first floor, and with no view. However, you don't plan to stay in your room when you are in Rome right? This hotel is in a perfect location that you can walk to the Spanish Steps and major tourist attractions.

The staff is super friendly, and every night I asked them for restaurant recommendations and they never disappoint.

We arrived in Rome for what was supposed to be just a two day trip before heading to Florence, but we were having such a good time, we decided to stay a couple extra days. Unfortunately the beautiful hotel that we were staying at did not have availability for the extension and recommended us down the street to a Savoy. At first glance, it seemed nice and comparable to where we were staying previously. However, as soon as we opened the door to the room, we were hit with the stench of what can only be described as the sewer. To top it off, the peeling wall paper and ugly black velvet bed spread was terrible. I could barely sleep in the stench, could not bare to take a shower in there or anything without holding my breath. We told the front desk and they went up there, but as far as I could tell, nothing was done. We left a day early because I could not bare another second at that hotel.
