“In The Heart of Florence”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

This five star property holds an advantage in that it is ideally located in the heart of Florence. The hotel overlooks the famous Piazza Della Repubblica and is steps away from the city's fine art galleries, trendy, upscale shops, and of course the Duomo. Their decor is sophisticated and stylish, their concierge helpful and friendly. They will even organize a van to pick you up right in front of the hotel for a day trip to the ever popular shopping center, known as The Mall in Tuscany (an outlet mall for designers such as Fendi, Loro Piana, Prada, etc). We loved the convenient location of the hotel however the drawback was the noise that seemed to pervade the halls of the property. If you are looking for a centrally located hotel bustling with a vivacious energy that matches the city, then this hotel is definitely for you!

Just returned from a great four day break in Florence at The Savoy. This hotel is fabulous. The location is superb, the rooms are immaculate and the staff are so friendly and
welcoming. After only a few hours, when we came in contact again with any of the staff we were greeted by name, a lovely touch considering how many people must pass through their doors. Also I requested a queen size bed, at the back of the hotel, overlooking The Duomo and that is exactly what I was given. I would have no hesitation recommending this hotel. Deana S

I totally recommend this hotel. The location is perfect, the service is great, the room are nice and have a good size!
If you need a recommendation for restaurants... the concierge is very helpful. The price was not too expensive for the high season.

If you need a comfortable, upscale refuge from the hustle of Florence, stop in here. Open to the Piazza della Repubblica so good people watching. Tall, cold 10 euro beer hit the spot on a hot afternoon.

Wonderful location and great service. The room was a bit small, but everything else was great about this hotel. The concierge staff was very eager to help. They have a very nice bar with sidewalk seating. Breakfast was excellent.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper floors (you can hear the trash collectors from the lower rear floor)

This used to be the most luxurious of the hotels. Since then JK Palace, the Four Seasons, the renovated St Regis all have surpassed in beauty BUT the Savoy remains great. The location on the Piazza is the best. Perhaps people may think noisy but the windows are soundproof. I had a room with balcony on square. The best room to have. It was not large which was a drawback. We were doing some business. This hotel made that easy. The restaurant and terrace are busy all day you can even do meetings with a Compari at 11 at night. One night the restaurant was closing, it was late, they immediately put down a tablecloth and fed us. Everyone agreed that after one day you felt at home. The concierges, whom we used a great deal, were the best. It is still five star,in everyway, but if you want to be away from the crowds and pure luxury go St Regis if you want a great hotel in the heart of things and making your stay perfect, then this hotel great

Room Tip: On the Pizza not the back
