Six of us stayed here for a long week end in August. The hotel is so convenient - right on the Ponte Vecchio bridge so easy to walk everywhere. The rooms are lovely, comfortable and spotlessly clean and strangely not noisy at all. The rooftop bar is great and is lovely and cool at night. There is no restaurant in... More

This was one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had. No hyperbole what-so-ever. And I travel quite a bit. Somehow though, Florence has always escaped me. I'm glad I ended up choosing this hotel for my visit. The Continentale is in an optimal position in the city. Literally looking out over the ponte vechio. There's a wonderful lounge/reading room...

Loved it! Honeymoon, so decided to splash out on hotels. This was an expensive option, but a Smith recommendation, and was fantastic. Location was excellent. Staff were excellent. The room was clean, well-stocked, airy and light, comfortable and well-designed. This is one of the few places I have stayed in across Italy that I would happily return to.

Staff were great on arrival, very friendly throughout hotel, upgraded us to a lovely room (502) on the corner overlooking the river with views, and balconies, on both sides. Hotel is in the middle of things, Uffizi only a 3 minute walk at most, but was very quite once the windows were closed. If breakfast isn't included you can pay... More

I stayed in the beautiful, modern Contintale for 3 night two nights on business. The concierge staff upon arrival was prompt and friendly, helping with my bag, the wifi access, and offering any assistance with restaurants or site seeing that I might need. My room had the largest bathroom I have ever seen in Europe - a shower that could... More

Perfect location in Florence; right on the river, close to the action but in a quieter spot. Very close to the Uffizi. It is very modern and clean. The most comfortable bed we had in Italy. We booked a standard room and the website said it was 24 square meters, which is one of the reasons I booked it, but... More

Had read this was a good stop in the LUXE guide. They were spot on! Great bar for a sunset cocktail. Right at Ponte Vecchio so just stop when you are tired for a day of walking, shopping, whatever! Great view and nice spot for a cool breeze. Bartender was extremely accommodating. I like a few classic cocktails that are... More

Dear Musicgrazer, thank you so much for taking time to review our Rooftop Bar La Terrazza. The decor, the ambient and the atmosphere all recall the Dolce Vita epoque of the 60/70s in Italy. Part of our concept is as well to let the guest feel free to be themselves in a contemporary pleasing atmosphere. We are so excited to... More

We had a wonderful stay at Continentale for 3 nights in late August. Our room was beautiful. On a corner, with large openable windows overlooking the Ponte Vecchio and the Arno River, the room had a king sized four poster bed wrapped in gauzy white curtains. Similar curtains hung on the windows. All gave the room light, airy and romantic... More

This hotel was simply amazing. So trendy, clean, upscale and absolutely beautiful! The staff was very hospitable and the roof top bar provided amazing views of the city, the breakfast was a little pricey but still good. Highly recommended.
