My husband and I recently stayed for 5 nights at the Continentale Hotel in Florence. The hotel well exceeded my expectations. We were upgraded to a deluxe room with direct views over the Arno and Ponte Vechio, I just couldn't get over the view through my entire stay. The hotel is very clean and modern, full of chic decoration. The... More

Ok, I admit it. I have stayed here before. and i LOVE this hotel. It is literally at one end of the Ponte Vecchio and includes an old Tower in which there are rooms. Very modern, minimal rooms. Mostly white. Cool colored uplighting. Great bathrooms - all pickled wood and great bath amenities. This hotel is owned by the Ferragamo... More

This hotel has an excellent location and stylish decor. It was very pleasant for a 3 night stay and I would recommend it. I disagree with the reviews that have given this hotel 5*s: - it does not have 5 star facilities and there are much better hotels in the world, so it is a nonsense as a starter to... More

We were very pleased with this modern hotel right at the Ponte Vecchio. The location was amazing - centrally located and easy walking distance to all of the attractions. The staff were very pleasant and accomodating. Great roof deck and also the relaxtion room on the 2nd floor looking out upon the Ponte Vecchio was great!

We had a fantastic stay here, the place is clean, friendly, modern, minimalistic and right in the centre of florence. Just a shame the rooftop bar isn't open in the winter months.

We stayed at the Continentale for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay - we were given room 405 which had a balcony with a view of the Arno River. We had a split level room with the bathroom located up a small staircase, which made the room feel pretty huge. The hotel is a stones throw from Ponte Vecchio... More

The Continentale is in a fantastic location and provides a modern style room in a old, charming city. The contrast can be appreciated. The internet in this hotel was also complimentary, and that is always appreciated. The staff at the Continentale was fantastic and very accomodating. This hotel is close to all of the major sites - the Uffizi, market,... More

I chose to stay two nights at this hotel with my partner as the highlight of a recent trip to Tuscany; we were both seriously disappointed and will not be returning. Yes, the interior of the hotel has the clinical and chic 'wow' factor when you first arrive, the staff cool but still friendly but overall it feels more like... More

The hotel was very well located and some rooms had great views. The staff was good and the hotel and rooms were very clean and in good repair. The rooms were on the smaller side and the elevator was also very small. Bathrooms were nice and the shower was of a very good size. Everything was modern.

A lovely hotel with a light bright modern decor. I had a large room - beautifully decorated with a huge bed, great bathroom, tv, cd player, internet connection, walk-in closet. The staff were friendly, professional and always happy to help. The location is brilliant - about ten steps from Ponte Vecchio, a few minutes' walk from the Uffizi gallery and... More
