We have stayed at the Savoy, and the Helvetia, prior to The Four Seasons. These properties do not compare. Four Seasons IS a property, a rare thing in Florence, actually having beautiful grounds filled with flowers and ancient, gigantic trees, filled with singing birds. The service is incomparable, with Paul Lydka perhaps the BEST hotel concierge we have met in America or Europe. I have heard criticism that this property is "too far" from Florence City Center...that is one of its virtues, keeping one AWAY from the massive and dreaded crowds of Florence!!
Why not enjoy a daily 30 minute walk into the city center? Or take the shuttle? This is not a criticism worth entertaining!
The price of Four Seasons is exorbitant, certainly...so its appeal may be limited, but it should not deter one from a trip to the property and a tour of the magnificent grounds, a glass of Prosecco or Chianti enjoyed while relaxing there...see the property website from details of the amenities and photos...
