This was our first trip to Italy (and Europe for that fact) so we had no idea what to expect. We booked the Grand Hotel Savoia based on TripAdvisor's great ratings and we were not disappointed.
We arrived and were checked in almost immediately with very helpful staff. The rooms were ready and perfect for what we booked, one quad and one double room. I noticed right away how well kept and clean the hotel was. For the person that said the hotel was old and outdated, we did not find that the case. Was the hotel a classic themed hotel with the lobby design and common area design? Yes, but I would not call it old, that's the style they were going for. The rooms were quiet (we had the front street rooms which had metal folding exterior shades that really darkened and sealed the noises from outside), the beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were new and clean and the maid service was excellent. Breakfast? Absolutely, we recommend paying for the breakfast buffet with your room, it was fabulous! The roof deck was great with the hot tubs and bar also. The hotel itself is a little walk from the sights, but not overly so. There were some great local cafes in the area and some great gelato places nearby. The main street the hotel is on has some graffiti walls, but we never ever felt unsafe, even at night. Note that the hotel shuttle is not always available, we were told it was out of season and not running. Also the wifi was best in the lobby, we found the room signal rather weak and inconsistent.
My only slight gripe was that some of the front desk staff was more friendly than others, but all spoke English and all were still helpful. Overall we loved it there and would not hesitate to stay there again....especially for the prices. A great hotel for a modest price.
