Savoy Florence: innovation and tradition

Savoy Florence reopened on April 13th after a massive overhaul. In the heart of the city (Piazza della Repubblica), Savoy Florence has a brand new design inspired by the Florentine Renaissance, and new connections with the fashion world.

Savoy Florence: a brand new, shiny, deal

Savoy Florence is now part of the Lvmh fashion group. And the reopening of the hotel has been celebrated with a fashion hommage by Laudomia Pucci, Emilio’s (Lvmh founder) daughter, who designed a foulard to celebrate the hotel, its heritage and its position in the very center of Florence.

The decorations of the hotel and of its restaurant – Ristorante Irene (at the helm the chef Fulvio Pierangelini) – are inspired by the colours and layout of the Florentine Renaissance.

The hotel has been brought back to its splendour, with wide and bright common areas. While the layout and colours are definitely sober, decorations and accessories are full of colours, nodding as to the Renaissance as to Pop Art too: the lobby carpet is an artwork of its own.

Savoy Florence: the rooms

Fewer rooms, better rooms. The Junior Suite and the Grand View Suite have been completely renovated, as the two jewels of the Florence Savoy crown: the Duplex Suite (view of Campanile di Giotto and Palazzo Vecchio), and the Duomo Presidential Suite (view of the Brunelleschi Dome). The 177 sqm Presidential Suite is actually a completely independent wing of the hotel.

Welcome to culture and a stylish staying!

The hotel was founded by the Ferragamo family (another huge piece of the Florentine fashion heritage) in 1893. Savoy Florence has its own art gallery, and modern artworks, inspired by the history of Italian art and Italian craftsmanship, embellish the common areas.

If you are planning a trip to Florence and you are looking forward to a high profile accommodation, take a look at Savoy Florence!
