Hotel Savoy, Florence, Italy
Florence's smartest hotel sits proudly on the Piazza della Repubblica (Florence's main square) with a prime position between the Duomo and the Ponte Vecchio. This 17th-century building that has been a hotel since 1893 incorporates modern comforts and styles that blend seamlessly with traditional features. Bursts of colour from fabrics and artworks in public areas give way to elegant, more classic styles in the guest rooms. Boasting luxurious comfort throughout, the Savoy also has a gym and a spa suite. Savour supper at Italian fine dining restaurant Irene's, which has a terrace on the square ideal for soaking up the Florentine bustle.
Key sights such as the Duomo and the Ponte Vecchio are just a short stroll away.
