“They should take more care about their guests wishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Returned to Florence after couple of years. Despite the fact that Florence now has much more 5* hotels then 7 years ago, we decided to stay in Savoy, like the last time.
What a mistake it was.
Staff - arrogant and unpleasant.
Service - slow.
Rooms - should be at least refurbished, while time goes by and things tend to lookd used or in a bad shape if you do not take care about them
Location - did not change, ie. great.
But next time we move to Four Seasons.

2nd stay at this hotel, great view from room over the square, although can get noisey in the evening if you leave windows open. Very friendly and clean. Breakfast has a good choice on the buffet and there is a menu breakfast also.

Located on the Piazza Repubblica, close to Florence's renowned landmark the Duomo, the hotel is just a short walk from the Uffizi Gallery and the Ponte Vecchio. Just steps away from the main Florence fashion houses, the Hotel Savoy is the ideal base from which to visit the key attractions of this beautiful and historic city.
L'Incontro Bar and Restaurant is among the most popular restaurants in Florence offering views over the Piazza Repubblica and, during summer, the chance to dine outdoors.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are quieter

Found little to fault this hotel on. Fantastic location in the centre of Florence. Lovely lobby and great bar. Service first class also. If I really wanted to be fussy I might have liked a larger room and bathroom but the high ceilings and great views make it hard to quibble about this. Would definitely return.

My husband and I have just returned from a further 5 days in Florence staying at The Savoy. We previously stayed here 6 years ago when we got engaged at the Hotel and were now back to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary.

The Savoy is pure luxury and serves by far the best crispy bacon you will ever find across the globe. We were pampered with our stay. Upon arrival to our room we were greeted with the most amazing view - laying on the bed and looking straight out to the Duomo. Not to mention the complimentary celebratory bottle of Prosecco that the hotel management provided for our anniversary.

The staff at the hotel are very friendly, welcoming and at the same time are not intrusive. As the hotel is so centrally located, it is great for access to all the sites. The room was gorgeous and housekeeping were efficient and helpful as always.

The concierge gent also provided some great recommendations of Osteria's close by that wasn't flooded with tourists and had delicous food and of course great wine.

The only item requiring improvement would be to have softer mattresses as the mattress is quite stern and that the breakfast buffet should include hot meals.

Room Tip: Opt for room 501 - the most amazing view of the Duomo.

We booked this hotel in florence as we thought it had a good location being smack center. when we arrived in florence though we realised that any location is a good location as this is a very cosy little town. I didnt quite like my room, the bed was on the small side and it was oddly shaped. it was the first room next the the elevator. however having said that the quality was quite good and the breakfast was very nice.

if you do stay here have the knowledgeable front desk staff book you restaurants for lunch dinner and whichever meal you want. they have been the best recommendation i have received from any hotel staff during my extensive travels. you can check some of my other florence reviews for some restaurants shortly

Best location, great hotel. We love great hotels like the fourseasons and the Ritz Carlton, his one is right up there. Request the second floor with a balcony facing the square. The rooms on the second floor have 10 foot plus ceings and one of two floors with baloconies. The staff is so friendly! Watch out for the bar, I paid 10 euro for a draft beer! I will absoultely be back, it is the place to stay in Florence!

Room Tip: request the second floor on the square with a balcony..............
