Hotel Savoy
Ranked #26 of 410 Hotels in Florence
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 March 2009

The hotel is perfectly located for all the main sights, and the service from all departments is excellent. The bedrooms, however, are not soundproofed. They have some double glazing but this didn't keep out the noise from the street and the square in the middle of the night. For a 5 star hotel, it needs proper secondary glazing.

My husband and I treated ourselves for our 30th wedding anniversary by staying at The Savoy. It is pricey, but to us, it was worth it. The staff, rooms, food, location . . . everything was beyond compare to any hotel we have stayed at before.

I was lucky enough to be treated to a five star opulent weekend in gorgeous Florence for Valentines weekend by my boyfriend and we stayed at the Savoy. It really did have the best service we've ever come across in a hotel and the staff and hotel were amazing. Alberto showed us to our room and we'd been upgraded to a fifth floor corner room with a breathtaking view of the Duomo. Morning, noon and night, we'd sit on the window seat, open the shutters and gaze at the light of the Dome, then listen to the bells peal out across the city - it was truly magical. Alessandro the concierge was brilliant and got us prebooked Uffizi tickets and made lots of recommendations for our trip. Alberto asked if we'd like a city guide map, and sent up a proper DK book for us to keep - simply amazing. The room was clean and calmy decorated, with mushroom and lime cool colour scheme and lovely extra touches. The bathroom was lovely with a marble recessed bath for two with a wonderful mosaic wall. We piped in classical music from the TV system through the bathroom speakers - bliss! We had the stunning five course Valentines dinner in the restaurant and the restaurant manager really looked after us, showing such interest to make sure all diners enjoyed every course and everyone was happy. We were! The chilli chocolate pudding and strawberries to dip into molten white chocolate were gorgeous! I was also given a gift of handmade chocolates after dinner, and we found another box left by the maid in our room, all adorned with the Savoy's own giftcard and Valentines wrapping. After dinner we took a moonlit walk through the city and as we returned and stepped into the lift, the restaurant manager spotted us and ran over with a red rose from the table for me. I'm smiling even writing this review, remembering how special the hotel and its staff were.
The only downsides that struck me were that at 31 euros, the cold buffet breakfast, whilst lovely, was very expensive, and the guest lift was temperamental. These really are minor quibbles however - it was simply stunning

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 !!!
