The location of this hotel was absolutely phenomenal, and the amenities in the room itself were great (we loved the tub and the blackout curtains, especially). But the carpets in the hallway were dirty, the cleaning equipment was always in the hallway (tripping hazard!) and the hotel had a sort of strange smell to it. Additionally, the front check in...

A great place to have a sundowner with great views of Florence. Quite pricey but the view is worth it! There is a good selection of drinks and all come with some complimentary snacks. The waiters are friendly and the couches are comfortable. The perfect spot to escape the crowds of Florence!

You could tell all the staff were trained here... all attentive and helpful and everything flowed smoothly from start to finish. Room/bathroom isn't overly massive but you spend your time outside exploring anyway. Rooftop terrace for drinks is great and a nice view. Modern design and clean. I enjoyed my start here. Excellent breakfast here..one of my favourite breakfasts in... More

Situated Along the banks of the Arno, try and get a room with a view of the river and bridge. There is a nice rooftop bar that gets busy in the evening with... More

Second stay at the Continentale. Twelve days this time. Exceeded our high expectations in every way. Our room, 502, was great! The facility is topnotch, as is the buffet at breakfast. And, the staff tops it all!!! I can't pick one of the staff that stood out above the others. Everyone was great!

Continentale is part of a great hotel family (lungarno) that puts great emphasis on design and hospitality. Among other Lungarno hotels, Continentale is on the inexpensive side while having access to all sister hotels' dining choices - such as Caffe Dell'oro at Portrait (right around the corner).

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
