The centrally located Hotel Savoy is situated on Piazza della Repubblica, putting you right at the heart of things. Everything that’s great about Florence is within easy reach, next to the Duomo and within walking distance of the River Arno, Ponte Vecchio, Boboli Gardens and Pitti Palace, as well as the finest designer boutiques of Via Roma and Via Tornabuoni. Re-vamped as a part of its initiation into the Rocco Forte family this 19th century hotel is less historic grand hotel and more chic design magazine minimalism.
The Forte signature brand of contemporary yet classic Italian-luxe has been neatly captured in the contemporary smart modern design. At the expert hands of Forte and his sister Olga Polizzi the sense of location and history have been retained and reflected in star-designer Olga Polizzi’s sleek Italian interiors with muted colors, cafefully chosen sculputures and artwork and beautiful mosaic bathrooms. Polizzi has also referenced the city’s nearby fashion boutiques with tongue-in-cheek photography. Each room even comes complete with thoughtful touches such as Dante's Divine Comedy and many of them have a beautiful view over the Repubblica Square.
The hot spot bar and restaurant Irene, presided over by Michelin star chef Fulvio Pierangelini, attracts a fashionable crowd for its inspired Tuscan dishes and local wines. In summer enjoy al fresco dining on the classic Piazza Repubblica.
