An Italian escape at The Savoy Florence

The Savoy is the perfect boutique hotel for a stylish city getaway. With an ideal location right in the heart of the shopping area and within walking distance of amazing restaurants and attractions (the Duomo is literally just around the corner), makes The Savoy a great choice for those with limited time in Florence.

1. The room
We had the double room which was quite small in size but very elegant. The best parts about it must have been the very high ceiling (I love high ceilings), which gave the room a very "royal" feel, and the bathroom which was beautiful and almost as large as the bedroom.

2. The breakfast & other dining options
The breakfast was very Italian mainly focused around cold meats and cheeses and of course a cup of coffee. There are cooked dishes available to order but these are usually charged extra. Although I`m a huge breakfast person on this occasion I didn`t particularly mind as we were eating so much for lunch and dinner that we preferred a lighter breakfast.

3. Spa/ fitness facilities
No pool or spa unfortunately, however there is a fitness facility although walking in Florence probably gives you enough exercise :).

4. The service
Beautiful service from everyone working there from the doorman (a charmer!) to the concierge that made us feel very welcomed. They even offered me a free tiramisu which pretty much made them in my eyes the best hotel on the planet!

5. Location
Situated in a large piazza the hotel has a great location within walking distance from all the main attractions and in the heart of the shopping area. The only downside is that it can get a bit touristy and busy especially during the afternoon in weekends so we usually walked across Ponte Vecchio where it was a bit quieter and full of local restaurants.
