The Property

The elegant Hotel Savoy is one of the gems of Rocco Forte Hotels. Uniquely located on Piazza della Repubblica, in the heart of Florence’s city centre, the hotel is built on the site where the Mercato Vecchio and the Church of San Tommaso once stood. The most iconic monuments as well as the finest designer boutiques are within reach. A feeling of discreet luxury pervades the building’s interior decor which celebrates Italian expertise with artworks inspired by local fashion houses. The 102 guestrooms, including the 14 indulgent signature suites, are decorated by Olga Polizzi, in a classic contemporary style with carefully chosen sculptures, artworks and photography. With a spectacular view over the square, the two-bedroom newly refurbished Repubblica, located on the piano nobile, is the most prestigious suite of the Hotel. To make your stay even more comfortable, indulge in an exclusive in-suite spa treatment in the privacy of Signoria and Brunelleschi suites, equipped with Turkish baths. A panoramic gym with views overlooking the Duomo is always open. Hotel Savoy has recently launched Irene, a retro-chic, Florentine bistro that offers healthy reinventions of Tuscan classics by celebrated chef Fulvio Pierangelini together with a spectacular view on the piazza.

Travel Tip

The award-winning Pinocchio Experience is a fun yet educational workshop where our younger guests learn to personalize a piece of wood drawing inspiration from Carlo Collodi's famous novel. Those who are interested in the city culture can embrace one-to-one opera singing lessons or painting classes organized by the hotel. During the warmer months the best way to visit Florence is to go for an eco-friendly tour with our Velorbis bicycles, especially designed for us by the famous Danish bike maker. Food lovers can attend a cooking lesson with our celebrity Chef Fulvio Pierangelini at Riccardo Barthel’s Desinare.
