We won a four night stay at the Savoy, so perhaps we shouldn't complain, but the fact is this hotel is living off the Savoy name. The location is brilliant - right off the Via Veneto. The public areas are lovely - classic, ornate old style. It's the rooms & the staff that are really off the mark here. Except for one young woman of African origin, the front desk staff were cold & not very helpful. We were initially given a very small room facing a dark inner courtyard that felt more like a cell than a hotel room. The layout was horrible, too. The front desk staff were uncooperative about moving us until the shift changed & we were helped by the young woman previously mentioned. The room we moved to was larger, though still small, but with a much better layout & view. The beds were uncomfortable & the pillows (if you can call them that) were a joke. We requested different pillows but were told they were all being used by others - no wonder.
The breakfast room is downstairs, i.e., no windows. Breakfast selection was generally good though it would have been nice to have some plain, no-sugar yoghurts. Breakfast room staff were pleasant. We only ate breakfasts in the hotel. They do have a lovely rooftop bar with nice views of Rome.
Unfortunately, the only thing this hotel has going for it is its location. Too bad. We would not return despite its convenience.
