Stayed at the Savoy for 3 nights in mid April as part of a package deal.
It's a very old, dark and unpleasant building. Our room was miniscule with an ancient bathroom. Our window opened up to face a loud, smelly courtyard. Therefore, when we were in the room, (which we kept to a minimum), we usually kept it closed and took turns turning the AC on and off. The AC has only 2 options, On or Off. Since the room was so small it got too cold rather quickly.
The room had 2 tiny twin beds whose mattresses were almost as hard as plywood. There was no chain, dead-bolt, or any type of safety device on the door. The bathroom sink was the old-fashion type attached to the wall with no cabinet or vanity top. There was only one small shelf in the bathroom, which was already full with the Hotel's shampoo and soap display, so we had to put the bench from the bedroom in the bathroom to have a place for our grooming products. The old, dirty looking tub had the shower head in the center instead of at one end or the other, which made for an awkward showering experience. The water pressure from the shower head was so weak that it made showering an even bigger challenge.
The buffet breakfast was adequate but never varied. The scrambled eggs were watered down and had an odd taste. The coffee was very good, but overall the breakfast area, like the rest of the Hotel needed a good thorough scrubbing.
The front desk staff were not friendly or helpful in any way. I definitely would not recommend this Hotel to anyone other than single, young men who don't mind "roughing it", and are only looking for a place to crash.
