Honestly we didn't really know what we were going to get, but were so pleasantly surprised with everything about the Continentale. The hotel is modern and newly renovated. The room was a duplex with high end finishes and a comfortable bed. It is close to Ponte Vecchio and we walked everywhere. We had a great time in Florence and surely... More

right near the Ponte Vecchio, you can get a room with great views of the Arno. The hotel is in walking distance of most local sights and shopping. The hotel seems to emphasize style with , for example, filmy white curtains around the beds. Are those curtains hygienic? How often do they get washed.? There was great closet space for... More

Dear Rumson, thank you for giving us a nice insight about your experience at Continentale. The design and style of the décor is a creation of the famous Florentine architect Michele Bonan. He decided to recall the Dolce Vita époque in the 60's, from colours, fabric, music and atmosphere. Indeed the white curtains are signature of Hotel Continentale among our... More

i cannot recommend this hotel more highly. The hotel itself is really chic, trendy, and perfectly located. The bedroom was fabulously styled, and the view over the Ponte Vecchio was incredible. Whenever we popped back for a break you could have people watched all afternoon. The real thing for us were the staff. Just the friendliest and most helpful group... More

The rooms were well thought out. Good amenities, stunning location. Roof top terrace bar not to be missed. Overall a fabulous stay. Call the hotel for driving directions - because they're right next to the Ponte Vecchio it's a bit tricky.

We were upgraded to a room overlooking the Ponte Vecchio and Arno river and the view was absolutely stunning!! The room was comfortably large enough, the bathroom was quite large. The windows opened which allowed for us to enjoy the musicians on the bridge but when closed, the room is very quiet. The bed is comfortable, the room is clean,... More

This place has a lovely roof top terrace that opens in the afternoon with slouchy seats and overhead heaters.Great for a relaxing pit stop mid way through the afternoon. It is quiet and away from the buzz on the streets below. Views over the Arno and toward the Ponte Vecchio make it a great photography place too.

Dear Ladyrawdo, thank you for highlighting what you liked the most about Hotel Continentale. It's wonderful to hear that you could find a little corner of tranquility and relax here, far away from the hectic day in Ponte Vecchio, although you were right in the center of Florence. Summer is coming soon and the weather is just perfect to enjoy... More

We have just returned from our stay at the Contunentale. Overall I'd say it's a nice hotel.

The room: I booked a double,... More

I came and stayed for our honeymoon and we were super happy and satisfied with hotel's service, interior designs and furnitures, and the location. We were touched when complimentary champaign arrived to our room sent by a rooms division manager. Breakfast place is decent at a reasonable price, restaurant booking service was professional. We would absoultely return soon.
