“5 STAR all the way”
Reviewed 8 January 2009

In early December 08 ,my wife and I spent 5 fabulous nights in Florence. The Savoy was a gem. We were made to feel at home immediately on arrival. All the staff were friendly , courteous and helpful and knew our names. The room was impecably clean, comfortable with a great bathroom. The bed linen was superb and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast had no hot items but was very substantial, fresh and delicious not to mention the great esspressos. The location is spot on . You can not go wrong by staying at the Savoy. On our return to Firenze we will stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at the Savoy for our wedding night in 2005 and I have been meaning to write a review. We have stayed in many world renowned 5 star hotels since then and not one of them has ever lived up to the standard of the Savoy. We were upgraded to an amazing room with 3 balconies. The staff were the most courteous and helpful we have ever encountered and the design, location and overall experience at the hotel was outstanding.

Just returned from touring Italy & Greece for three weeks. The Savoy is wonderful and the location superb of the Piazza Republicca. It was fabulous to go out on your balcony and watch everything in the piazza. The conceirge Marco sent us to one incredible trattoria after another and Mario the manager sent us up champagne and a beautiful gift upon departure. We definitely will be back !!!

The Savoy is located in the Piazza della Republica, the best location for Florence. Florence is small and easy to navigate so staying somewhere further a field would not have been so terrible, but I like to be in the center of the action especially in the evenings. The Savoy is ultra modern, beautifully decorated, very clean and the air conditioning was excellent. When you're travelling in July you want great AC. Our hotel room and balcony were overlooking the Piazza. There is a great outdoor cafe which is great for people watching. The hotel is close to the galleries, duomo and the best shopping. The concierage gave us pretty good recommendations for dinner and lunch. He told us about the best Tuscan steak restaurant in the city.... stay away from steak if you're used to tender great cuts of meat. Steak in Italy is gigantic and really tough. My husband took a bite and left the whole steak on his plate. It was that bad. We went to a great restaurant La Giostra. The food was great, the atmosphere very charming. You can eat outside or in. It's romantic and if you're travelling with kids they will seat you away from the diners who prefer a quiet evening meal. For lunches, stick with pizza and pasta from the little local places.

The hotel bathroom is sleek and comes equipped with great ammenities.

In the evenings after a great meal you can relax on your balcony with a drink while watching the scene in the piazza below. The Piazza della Republica has a big beautiful carousel for kids, street performers (comedy, opera,) and artists. The best entertainment is watching the fake purse and sunglass dealers packing up their wares as the local police arrive on the scene.

If you're used to 5 star accommodation the Savoy will not disappoint. Staying at the Westin near the train station would have been a huge mistake as it is quite far from where you want to be.

We cut our stay in Rome short, due to the heat and called The Savoy on a whim to arrive the next day. I booked a room for my boyfriend and I, and we were delighted to find that they had upgraded us to a suite with two balconies and the most amazing view! Needless to say, the service was perfect the entire time. From the front desk, to the doorman and incredibly helpful concierge the service was impeccable. Everyone was genuinely friendly, kind and efficient.
The hotel itself feels new, upscale, and somewhat contemporary. Although the rooms are small, they are tastefully furnished and the bathroom was marble, tile and gorgeous. Our view and location was the most perfect we could have dreamed of. We will definitely be back and wouldn't imagine being in Florence in any other hotel.
As an extra aside, one day the concierge reserved a Mercedez with driver and guide. His name was Fabrizio and he took us to the Chianti region, where we had lunch and wine tasting at a vineyard in the hills. Yes, it was as perfect as it sounds.
Thank you to the manager, Simone, and to the staff. The Savoy was our favorite hotel during our trip to Italy and France. And this review comes from a traveler who wouldn't stay at any less than a five star.
