Stayed here last week for a few nights, was an absolute pleasure. The room was great, the roof terrace idyllic, especially in evenings. They have a 'relax' room where you can lie on a bed and watch the crowds go by near the Ponte Vecchio or have an afternoon nap. The service was also very good, they gave us a... More

Our second visit to this understated stylish hotel. The first time was for my Birthday and the hotel left a nice message and a bottle of bubbly in the room, really nice surprise. It is perfectly located near the river, a few minutes from the wonderful piazza della signoria and has a wonderful peaceful atmosphere. The rooms are serene and... More

This place was perfect! Spacious unique modern rooms. Unbeatable location and surprisingly peaceful. The rooftop bar was a massive draw card! Great sunset views and great drinks! The drinks are a little pricey but worth it to be out of the hussle and bustle of the streets below! TIP - if approaching the hotel by car, don't let the busy... More

Enjoying an aperol spritz on the rooftop bar of Hotel Continentale while overlooking the Arno or Palazzo Vecchio and il Duomo is only one of the great things of the hotel. The rooms are spacious and bright, with excellently chosen furnishings. The stairs in the room we had leading up to the bathroom may not be to everyone's liking, but... More

We had a fantastic experience at the Continentale hotel. Design rooms, minimalist decor, fabulous view over the Arno river and Ponte Vecchio. The rooftop bar is definitly one of the best spot to sip a Spritz cocktail and enjoy the 360 view of Florence. The staff is really professional and helpfull. Thanks for this memorable stay, we will come back!

We stayed for four nights last week as part of a 9 night trip (2 nights in Venice, 3 nights in Vienna). As this is where we were staying for the longest time, we really wanted to get a good hotel, which we did. We both loved everything about the hotel, from arriving to a smiley, friendly, helpful member of... More

I stayed at the Continentale Hotel for a few days on my own before meeting up with my boyfriend. What a wonderful hotel! Great location, literally in a couple of steps and you are on the Ponte Vecchio! So central to everything which meant I could pop in and out during the day to cool down, get wifi or drop... More

We were greater with an immediate upgrade to the penthouse suite.No complaints! Lovely hand written welcome note and really helpful staff. The hotel is very chic with a great rest room with day beds looking out at the action on the Ponte Vecchio . A wonderful stay in Florence at a beautiful hotel.
