The Lowdown

With neighbours like the Duomo, the Ponte Vecchio, and Via de Tornabuoni, Hotel Savoy stands as a truly unparalleled holiday destination. Located in arguably the most romantic city in Italy, Hotel Savoy is among the most fashionable spots in Florence. Prepare to be dazzled as you step into the hotspot, decked out in interiors curated by Laudomia Pucci and Olga Polizzi that transport you to a world of elegance, adorned with signature prints and Renaissance antiques.


Stylish Eats

Best known for his two Michelin-starred restaurant Gambero Rosso, Chef Fulvio Pierangelini creatively directs Hotel Savoy’s Irene. Irene highlights the distinctiveness of its location by bringing the best of Tuscany straight to your plate. Delight in the flavors of freshly-caught seafood grilled on Himalayan Salt Stones, or savor the indulgence of Beef Tartare with Black Truffle, sourced just a few miles away.

Hotel Savoy is also home to the much-loved Irene Bar, a haven of vintage charm where plush leather seats invite you to unwind while overlooking the enchanting city of Florence. Every Thursday night, be sure to join the Art in Mixology Nights, where Head Barman Federico Galli takes inspiration from Florence’s vibrant art scene and crafts concoctions that are as stunning as they are delicious.
