“Very Cool Hotel in the Perfect Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

My husband and I visited Europe for our wedding anniversary, and Florence was our first stop. Hotel Continentale was truly the perfect way to start our amazing trip overseas. The staff was helpful and checked is in hours earlier than the check-in time. The hotel is the best location - right on the Ponte Vecchio, and the views from the rooftop bar is to die for! We made it an evening tradition to start our night there each night. Obviously if you've been to Florence, you know that you basically walk everywhere, but Continentale is in a great location - 10-15 minute walk to delicious restaurants; 5-minute walk to the Uffizi, 20-minute walk to Boboli Gardens, etc. Our general room was tight, but we were totally fine with the size, and it was very comfortable. We will e staying there on our next trip to Florence. Thanks for a great start to our trip!

Dear Jenna R,

thank you for taking time to share your last anniversary trip in Florence!
We are so glad that you could experience a contemporary pleasing stay with us and that you could bring back home some beautiful memories.
Actually, should you plan to come back next August for your anniversary, please feel free to contact us directly. It will be a pleasure to let you experience another different room type for your comfort either at Hotel Continentale or our sister property Gallery Hotel Art!
Surely it will be another Lungarno Collection experience but from a different point of view.

Looking forward to hear from you,
we send you our best regards From Florence

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 couple great recommendation for places to eat and it didn't disappoint!

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 tastefully decorated with massive beds. The roof terrace is lovely, views are amazing and staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful. It is a great base for doing your own thing but at the same time you know the staff are there to help/give you guidance if you need it, they don't fuss too much, just the right balance. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting beautiful Florence, it is perfect for a city break !

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 streets scare you off. The people will move out of the way. Just follow the river and you can pull up next to the hotel and they will have your car parked for EUR $35 per night.

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 they certainly gave the room that special touch. Despite being located right next to the Ponte Vecchio, making the city easily accessible, the hotel is remarkably quiet and the blackout curtains certainly add to a great night's sleep in an extremely comfortable bed.

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!

Dear Kmauffrey,

thank you for taking time to let us know your impression of Hotel Continentale.
We truly hope you brought back home to Hong Kong a wonderful memory of your vacation in Florence. Definitely a drink inspired by the Dolce Vita prepared by our Barman at our roof top bar La Terrazza is a must when visiting our hotel. If you are planning to come back, we remind you that our Lungarno Collection has other properties across the river. Each one with its own identity, but all of them reflecting the warmth of our brand.
Feel free to contact me directly if I may be of any assistance in the future!

With my warmest regards

I recently celebrated a milestone birthday in Florence and we used the Lungarno Collection of hotels. There are four hotels and I and my guests stayed in each and every one.
We had the experience of a lifetime! Nothing was too small or too difficult. It was an amazing hotel stay.
Anyone would be LUCKY to stay in any of their beautiful hotels with a lovely staff and the 'breakfast around' meaning you could eat or drink in any of the hotels and charge it to your own hotel and room was just amazing.
We loved every second.
Thank you Lungarno Collection.
