Experience the Beauty of Florentine Artisans in the Presidential Suite

With commanding views of Brunelleschi’s Duomo, Hotel Savoy’s Presidential Suite is unmistakably Florentine. Freshly refurbished by Olga Polizzi, its interior is a love letter to local craftsmen and artisans, whose stunning works adorn the two-bedroom suite.

Step inside and you’ll be instantly mesmerised by the hand-painted wallpaper, upon which hang exquisitely handcrafted gold leaf mirrors by local designer, Il Bronzetto. To enter their workshop is like going back in time to an Aladdin’s cave of bronze and gold treasure.

Every furnishing is imbued with Tuscan sophistication. The Presidential Suite’s Baroque-style chairs come from furniture maker, Chelini, a heritage workshop in operation since 1892. Stunning bookcases by family-run woodcraft house, Castorina line the walls of the living room, brimming with tomes from Italian authors. Adding a playful flourish, you’ll find charming vintage knick-knacks handpicked at Florence’s Mercato dei Pulci by Olga Polizzi.

In the bedrooms, atop the king-size bed, lies handmade paisley patterned blankets and soft furnishings in complementing colours by Filippo Uecher In soft wools, luxuriant velvet and opulent silks, they guarantee the most tranquil night’s sleep.

Ensuring all the finer details count, the suite’s stunning Carrara marble and mosaic tiled bathroom is finished with fine products from local historical perfumers.

When staying in the Presidential Suite, you’ll experience Florence like no one else can.
