Bottom Line

This 102-room hotel is known for personalized service and contemporary style. Neutral tones and tasteful fabrics create an elegant look, and are livened up by colorful artwork throughout. The attached L'Incontro Bar and Restaurant features a renowned Tuscan menu created by Michelin-starred Chef Fulvio Pierangelini and a chic dining room that spills out onto the piazza during summer months. The hotel's central location is a major draw, and most guest rooms offer spectacular views. Those facing front look out onto the piazza, which makes for a pretty vista, but a bit of noise. Rooms in the rear overlook the stunning Duomo -- even the fitness center has lovely views from its top-floor perch. Such beauty comes at a premium, however, as rates at this luxury hotel are steep. And unlike at the Golden Tower Hotel, there is no spa.

A prime spot right in Florence's Piazza della Repubblica, within walking distance to all the tourist sites

Map of Rocco Forte Hotel Savoy

Florence -- a beautiful city full of art, architecture, shopping, and dining -- is one of the easiest Italian cities for pedestrians, with nearly all of the main tourist sites located within short walking distance from each other. The Hotel Savoy is situated in the center of Piazza della Repubblica -- a pedestrian square surrounded by historical cafes, including Giubbe Rosse, which has long been a meeting place for famous artists and writers. Florence's renowned Duomo landmark is also nearby, with some rear-facing rooms at the Savoy offering views of the iconic dome.

Florence is one of Italy's most beautiful cities -- it's more compact, and less gritty, than Rome. The Duomo is the most iconic sight here, but other popular attractions include Michelangelo's "David" at the Galleria dell'Accademia, the works of Botticelli and da Vinci at the Uffizi, and the Ponte Vecchio bridge, which dates back to the 1300s. The Piazza della Signora is a popular tourist hub, and many hotels are located near it.
