Savic is in an old Dominican monastery and, as a result, each room is unique. We stayed in 3 different rooms (through some mixups associated with our reservation). The junior suite 208 has really tall ceilings, huge windows and a four-poster bed. The bathroom has a huge tub/shower combined. Junior suite 303 is really on the 4th floor as you have to climb a set of stairs once inside the room. This has wood-beamed ceilings, small windows with views over the rooftops and a huge bathroom with separate bath and shower. Because of the smaller windows and higher floor, this is definitely the quietest of the 3 rooms we tried. We also stayed in the executive suite room 204 one night. This is spectacular in that it has a painted ceiling and old frescoes on the walls. There is a separate bedroom and living room, fairly large windows (with views over the small square and restaurant) and a roomy bathroom with separate shower and bath (and tv inset in the wall). I would advise earplugs for light sleepers as the location is right in the heart of town.
The hotel is a bit worn around the edges. Each of the rooms we stayed in needed a fresh coat of paint and one of the sofas was torn. However, they did have painters working in the hotel while we were there (slightly inconvenient as the painters were working just outside our room and coughed constantly!), so maybe it will all be spruced up in the future.
This is a small hotel with all of the charm and problems that can come with that. When we first checked in, they almost denied us a room because of some maintenance problems. They wanted to send us to another hotel for one night and then back to the Savic. We had to remain steadfast to be able to get a room. Also, the front desk staff are super, super nice and always want to provide excellent service to each guest. However, since there is one staff person and one computer, if that person is busy, it can be a very long wait to get help. They have no system at all for handling overflow when multiple groups want to check in or out or just get a map.
Breakfast is served in a glassed in atrium. It is very good (selection of cold and hot dishes).
If you are coming from the airport, definitely book their transfer service as it is very convenient.
We would definitely stay at the Savic again, but we are willing to put up with some inconveniences for the charm of the building and the perfect location.
