The hotel’s Families R Forte program includes bespoke activities for the youngest guests so that adults can explore the shops and landmarks nearby.

Food lovers will enjoy regional flavors and local wines in the hotel’s Tuscan bistro, Irene.
Hotel Savoy, built 125 years ago in 1893, is located on Piazza Della Repubblica in the heart of Florence’s city center, between the Brunelleschi’s Dome and the charming Ponte Vecchio. Each of the 80 rooms and suites have been designed to enhance the Hotel’s timeless elegance and create a predominantly Italian feel, mirroring the essence of Rocco Forte. The 30 suites have been completely restructured and have increased to offer guests a more luxurious and spacious experience.
Rooms & Suites - Marrying Florentine heritage and contemporary style, the 80 spacious luxury rooms and suites epitomise intimate, vibrant sophistication. Each individually designed by Olga Polizzi in her signature sophisticated style, the elegant rooms and suites conjure a feeling of serenity that feels a world away from the busy Florentine streets. Showcasing fine Tuscan silks and local artwork and furniture, the rooms channel the city’s culture of splendour in the realms of art, fashion, and architecture.
Dining - The dishes, created by Celebrity Chef Fulvio Pierangelini, recall the rich and traditional Tuscan cuisine made with local and seasonal raw ingredients. The fluid and mostly white space of the entrance and Lobby is punctuated with colorful art and design elements, adding a sense of grandeur and glamour to the space. ''Irene Firenze" - A celebration of Italian cuisine and regional ingredients, Irene brings Fulvio Pierangelini’s authentic dishes to the heart of Tuscany, mere steps from the Renaissance majesty of Florence’s famous Duomo. Glamorous and inviting, Irene’s dining room is the ideal place to refresh and recharge during your time in Florence. Taste truffles in all their heady, perfumed glory, a few miles from where they’ve been foraged. Wind your fork around al dente spaghetti, sublimely tangled with fresh, local tomatoes softened and married with fragrant basil. Indulge in organic beef, or freshly-caught seafood, grilled on Himalayan Salt Stone.
''Irene Bar'' - Gleaming with vintage mirrored accents and beckoning with buttery-soft leather, Irene bar is a place to see, be seen, and luxuriate in Florence. Enjoy the sleek, sumptuous surrounds, both inside and out, with a well-crafted cocktail in hand. Relax in Emilio Pucci-designed glamour on Irene’s exclusive outdoor terrace, looking out over the bustle of the Piazza della Repubblica, or settle into the intimate bar area to sip in sophisticated splendour. Here, Champagne softly bubbles up from 50s-era coupe glasses and cocktails come stiffly, superbly mixed, with both classics and originals on the menu. Drinks like the Gin Blossom, a concoction of orange bitters, Lillet Blanc and apricot eau-de-vie fine gin, or the smooth My Orleans (Lillet Blanc, Courvoisier, fresh lime, honey syrup, and egg white) jostle for attention, while during aperitivo, the signature spritzes with Florentine accents reign supreme.
