Hotel Description

From the look of the Savoy’s facade, facing onto central Florence’s Piazza della Repubblica, one would perhaps expect the sort of arch and historic grand hotel that hasn’t seen so much as a new set of draperies since it opened in 1893. Perhaps a few years ago this impression would have been correct, but no longer, as the Hotel Savoy has recently had a thorough going-over as a part of its initiation into the Rocco Forte family.

To most of us, this is an unqualified plus. Unless you’re a particular sort of antique trainspotter, or looking to shoot a period film, you can’t help but fall for the signature brand of contemporary yet classic Italian-luxe pioneered by Forte and his sister Olga Polizzi, neatly splitting the difference between precious design-magazine minimalism and fussy old-world ornamentation. This is a chic yet eminently livable hotel, an environment that proves contemporary form and modern function can quite comfortably coexist.

In a sense, it’s the best of two worlds; the Savoy is absolutely central, steps from Florence’s Duomo and close by the Uffizi and the Ponte Vecchio. Here you can wake up with a view of the Duomo’s cupola or the Piazza della Repubblica, and in a smartly designed modern hotel room. Extra fashionista credibility comes courtesy of not just the location, within spitting distance of Florence’s major fashion houses, but in the building’s ownership as well—it’s ultimately owned by the Ferragamo family, which may explain the persistence of shoe imagery throughout the public spaces.
