Hotel Savoy is a pretty good hotel, not the best 5 stars I've stayed in. The location is unbeatable, located in one of the major squares, nice shopping nearby, close to the Duomo. Staff was excellent, very professional, and catered to all our needs.
Hotel may benefit from some refurbishment, floors and carpet seem a bit dated and unkempt, especially on the ground floor where the lobby restrooms are.
Rooms very small, toilet situated behind the door in the bathroom, really cramped, you'll have to walk in sideways. Impossible for 2 people to be in bathroom at same time.
We had flying insects in our room on first day.
Worst of all was the air conditioning did not work, the room was very stuffy, no air blowing. We woke up at 2 am all sweaty, technician could not fix it, got moved to a temporary room at 3am, finally, in the morning at 11 am, got upgraded to a bigger suite, which was still stuffy, but much better air conditioning.
The hallways, corridors also stay pretty warm, and the ground floor with the lobby restrooms are really warm and stuffy.
So, we moved room 3 times in 2 days!! Really tiring experience, with 2 kids.
So, hotel savoy is OK, but does need some upgrades, and do need some working air conditioning in the super warm summer weather!
However, hotel staff was so understanding, helpful and professional, that this made up for our stay.
By the way, dinner at Il Latini is a must! This was recommended by a friend, and hotel endorsed it too. Best pasta in Italy!
