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

The Continentale is a great hotel (part of the Lungarno group ) and situated in a good spot in Florence alongside the river Arno and steps from the Ponte Vecchio. Guests are able to use their other hotels facilities so we took up the breakfast package and enjoyed b/fast at both the Continentale and also at their Hotel Arts across... 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.

It was a fantastic experience staying at this hotel. My wife and I were traveling through Italy as part of our honeymoon. We stayed at plenty of hotels, and I have to say this one was a highlight.

This hotel has a rooftop bar overlooking the Ponte Vecchio.. Perfect location, wonderful staff including ....Felipe who had a wonderful kind personality and head Bartender Michell. They'd both made us feel completely at home and we enjoyed listening to their stories. First class all the way. We would sometimes go across the "courtyard" to the other Lungarno hotel and sat...

Very good location right near the ponte vecchio. Lovely rooms with beautiful four poster beds, we also had a great view of the river. The whole hotel is slightly cramped, but that is the trade off for the location. Service was mixed, we had emailed ahead to ask them to book the uffizi and they didn't manage to do this... More

Great little spot located next to the Ponte Vecchio. We had a corner room which was literally directly facing the famous bridge. There are lots of little spots inside the hotel to relax or lounge. Also, the roof-top lounge has one of the best views for evening cocktails. Everything is pretty much in walking distance. Although at night because of... More
