My husband and I stayed at the Continentale for 5 nights at the end of November. We stayed in a Prestige Arno View Room, which was so beautifully decorated-----hardwood floors, cream draperies around the very large and very comfortable bed and the same cream draperies lining the walls giving the room an ethereal feel. The Continentale is owned by the Ferragamo company and the main store plus Ferragamo museum is a 5 minute walk away. We had free admission to the museum with our stay. There is a sister hotel across the way where they serve breakfast.
A couple of things to note---(1) The hotel is right next to the Ponte Vecchio so it can be very noisy. Even very late at night, we could hear people (some obviously having had too much to drink) talking on the street. (2) We did in fact have a view of the Arno river, but the windows in our room were very small and deep, so to see the river, one needed to be right at the window. (3) Because the hotel is a small boutique hotel, often there was one (sometimes two) receptionist/concierge, so if the hotel were fully booked, there might be a wait for attention.
