“VIP for the weekend”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

As a keen cyclist I visited the hotel with my wife within a package to allow me to ride the 2013 road world cycling route. From start to finish the experience was simply amazing . The hospitality and care the hotel shared with us has not and will probably never be surpassed. The central location is ideal for people wanting to absorb the sights and sounds of the vibrant city. When you leave a hotel how do feel? With the Savoy it was VIP all the way, with the opportunity to ride with some remarkable people!

Our pick up was smooth with a very friendly driver who speaks English. The hotel is located very near the airport. Reached there in 10 minutes. Greeted by helpful front desk and luggage were handled very professionally. I was given a top floor balcony room with a small view of the duomo roof. That's perfect!

Rooms were small but like all hotels in Italy, you can't complain. The cozy decoration and the location of this small jewel is good enough for our stay in Florence. We walked to all tourist spot by foot. All of which are just a stone throw away.

The breakfast is so short of food, you'd rather eat out. Great coffee though. The hotel is surrounded by many cafes and smacked right in the middle of a shopping area.

Amenities in the room is just right and adequate. Comfortable bed after a long day of adventure in Florence. Bathroom is a bit small for westerners and you would have to close the door just to have space to move around. Very clean rooms.

Overall, my stay was very satisfactory as the service and friendly people made up for the small but great rooms.

Room Tip: Spend some extra bucks to book the highest floor room. Only the highest floor have balcony where you...

Although the location is excellent, the way the square is being used by the cafes and the various vendors detracts from its original beauty.
The staff is young, enthusiastic and professional at all departments. Quality of food and bar are excellent. My only con is that value for money is on the low side considering the size of rooms and especially that of the bathroom.

I booked my stay as a 3 night break via British Airways. Having read previous revews regarding small rooms and noise, I emailed the hotel prior to my arrival, asking for a higher floor room. I received a prompt reply, and was warmly welcomed on arrival.
The staff were utterly charming and nothing was ever too much trouble. I had asked for an electric kettle, tea etc, and all promptly provided.
My room,a standard double, was far bigger than I'd expected and the bathroom was even bigger! Noise was certainly not an issue as the double glazed windows and the window shutters kept all noise out. Ample wardrobe space with a surpus of hangers, lovely fluffy towels and dressing gown and the room was kept immaculately clean.
I had breakfast, lunch and dinner at the hotel, and the quality of the food, presentation and service were all faultless. I particularly enjoyed eating or drinking on the exterior pavement terrace, which was well shaded and a wonderful location for watching the activities in the Piazza. The concierge services were excellent, booking museum tickets, restaurants and providing clear advice and directions. Top marks!
I would warmly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for quality, comfort and impeccable services.

We stayed here 2 nights when travelling around in Europe celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary.
We had a lovely stay. Very helpful and dedicated professional staff from the doorman to the front desk and the concierge. They never hesitated to ask for help. Got some really good recommendations for delicious gelato and also local restaurants to taste the best of Italy :)

One thing I missed was a nice pool to take a swim after long days of exploring and shoping.

I would like to congratulate them for the "commitment to quality award" they received for Europe 2012 from The Leading Hotels of The World.

Really good central location ideal for visiting the top tourist sites and also finding some tucked away little treasures for drinks or a delicious Italian meal. We walked everywhere saw all the sites and more.
If you want to go to the art galleries book your tickets before you go and book to go early to avoid the crowds and to enjoy your visit before the temperature gets too hot.
Comfy walking shoes and a map essential.
Gelato a must too.

Room Tip: The nature of the building means the rooms are small so go for the best you can afford, they fit all...

We stayed here for 3 nights in September 2013 before we rented a villa nearby in Tuscany.
Right from collecting us from the airport , the service was of the highest level. Restaurant , front desk and concierge were all excellent , and the room staff were always friendly when we saw them. The guy who collected our bags when we left was particularly impressive!
Rooms were big enough , everything worked , didn't like the fact we had to pay for WIFI (that really is bad form!) and the views were great over the square.
It wasn't too noisy even given the very central location, which was perfect for getting round this lovely city.
Breakfast choice was good , although a little cramped at the buffet shelf. The evening meal on the small street side area was very good , great service in a great setting , of course more expensive than local restaurants but not excessively so.
Its not a big hotel but it is very comfortable and I wouldn't hesitate to go again.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the square , and of course higher levels are best.
