“Location is King!”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

The Savoy is perfectly located for any purpose. You can walk almost anywhere. The service was superb!!! Breakfast has room to improve but the staff make up for all weaknesses. Rooms are nice and ample. TV system not the best.

The Hotel Savoy is a very luxurious and yet relaxed hotel. I would call it "simple luxury", it is not gloriously decorated or otherwise oppulent, but provides great location and top service in the center of Florence.

The staff is friendly and very polite. The rooms very clean and comforable.The gym is small, but has a view of the Duomo.

I would definitely stay here again.

In the center close to the Domo. You can reach from central by walking around 7 minutes. The staff were friendly and specially the Door man. The rooms were small but very clean and the bath room as well. The Gym small with one tredmill. Internet (wi fi) was paid service. The breakfast not for five star hotel, limited options and every day same.

The Savoy Florence provides a 5-star environment with great staff and an excellent central location on the charming Piazza Della Repubblica. Rooms were functional though perhaps not quite befitting the art and artefacts of this great city.

The Bathroom was decorated in the finest Tuscan marble but the room was literally and metaphorically a little beige. Buffet breakfast good but nothing that shouted 'you are in a 5 star hotel, please indulge'.

We were in town on business and this was a great hotel for that function, I think there must be better options for the more romantic among us but The Savoy remains a strong all-round performer.

The hotel was wonderful and centrally located. We were welcomed to our room with chocolates. The hotel and room decor had a wonderful "home" feeling and the staff were extremely solicitous and always greeted us with a smile. Florence was extremely crowded this time of year but everything we wanted to see was within easy walking distance. The Piazza was right outside the front door of the hotel.

Great hotel in the #1 best location in town. Rooms are quietly elegant, staff is ultra-professional and the breakfast buffet is great and has a view of the Piazza! What more can you ask for? Stayed first week in December for husband's 50th birthday. Also, took a cooking class at Giglio Cooking School (see my review) which, together with the charm of the hotel, made for a perfect celebration. Can't wait to go back to Florence and will definately stay at the Savoy again.

It's getting harder to find a truly memorable 5 star hotel especially if your recent experience in a city has been at a Four Seasons. I can say with total confidence that the Rocco Forte Savoy in Florence should be added to that exclusive list. Our experience from the moment we stepped out of the taxi was impeccable. The staff are truly professional. Warm and friendly, they made us feel like we were returning guests. We were personally escorted to our room which proved to be one of the most comfortable on our month long trip to Europe. Everything about the hotel was 5-star - no aging furniture or tired paintwork. No worn carpet or dated decor. Perhaps more impressive is the location. You couldn't ask to be more central to all the action. Finally a hotel where the 5-star cost met all our expectations. Kudos to the management for making us feel like royalty even if it was just for one night!
