This is the best hotel ever! The amazing staff they have is outstanding, the location is amazing also just infront of the arno river which has an outstanding view, and its pretty close to the shops and cafe’s, all you have to do is step outside of the hotel and you will be there! I wouldn’t even dare to stay anywhere else if im coming fo Firenze ❤️

Dear reader, Simply put, there is no better place to stay in Florence. Location: the closest building to the Ponte Vecchio - it doesn’t get better than this - see photo. Accommodation: fabulous contemporary rooms, clean with all of the modern techno stuff like smart TV and Bluetooth speakers. Our room overlooked the street running into the Ponte Vecchio and we could open the window and see what was happening. The “Relax Room” sits one level above the street looking directly out over the Ponte Vecchio, Vasari Passage and the Arno river. Staff: friendly, happy and helpful. Real professionals and only too willing to assist in booking a tour or a train. Two thumbs up from me. My wife and I won’t stay anywhere else on our next visit.

I have just enjoyed a fabulous vacation in Florence, staying at the terrific Hotel Continentale. Several things stand out. First, the location is incredibly central, just on the north end of the Ponte Vecchio. This is important for me, as I am looking to walk to the major art museums in the morning. Second, the staff are all unbelievably friendly, welcoming, warm, and helpful. I stay at hotels frequently, and can't remember a hotel with better staff. Well done Continentale. Even the fabulous Martha at breakfast each morning always welcomed me with a smile, and helped me obtain my favourite, bacon and eggs with toast. Third, the design of the hotel is luxurious, cool - feels such a special place to spend time in. The bedroom was great: bed really comfortable, temperature in the room perfect, and easily adjustable, and everything worked. I had a great view of the Ponte Vecchio and the Arno river. Fourth, Silvia and the concierge team were very helpful with dinner reservations in the evenings at delicious restaurants, directions on their map to the art museums, and organizing my transfer to the airport on my final day. Altogether, an amazing stay. I will be back. Any negatives? Only two. The bathroom is a decent size, but the adjacent room containing the toilet and shower is too small for me - I found it claustrophobic. I like to stop by the hotel bar after a long day at the art museums when I return to my hotel. During winter this is not possible at Hotel Continentale, as their famous and fabulous La Terrazza rooftop terrace bar is closed. Not a huge issue, as I went to the Fusion Bar at the sister Gallery Hotel Art across the road. For a future visit, I will make sure I come during the season when the rooftop terrace bar is open.

My husband and I spent two idyllic days in this fantastic property. We had the suite on the top floor which is a dream come true. Lovely, modern and understated decor complemented by the most amazing view of the city: On the one side, The Ponte Vecchio and the Arno river. On the other side, from a delightful terrace, a view over Piazza della Signoria. Also, I have to mention the amazing huge bathtub with views over the city--if you like taking a bath, this is going to be one of the best, ever.The staff was so friendly and attentive and helped us out with ideas for dinner, reservations, tips on what to do and see. Also, it was my birthday and the staff surprised me with a hand-written note and a lovely, tasteful present. I wish I could go right back!

We loved staying at the Continentale. It is in a great location right next to the Ponte Vecchio. The staff is incredibly welcoming and kind. They were very helpful with helping us navigate Florence and even booked our tickets to several museums. The hotel is very cool and there is a lounge are and bar that is fun to hang out it. The saddest part was leaving the Continentale and Florence. A must stay!

We absolutely loved our stay at the Continentale- the staff are incredibly welcoming and helpful and the whole environment of the hotel is absolutely amazing! It is modern and sophisticated and all the staff go to every single length to make your stay amazing! It is by far the best accomodation we have had so far on our 3 week adventure through Italy! We booked the New Year’s Eve package with the hotel which included dinner at The Fusion Restaurant and Bar- the food was absolutely stunning but the cocktail pairing that we paid extra for, wasn’t really worth if at all. We were left waiting for the majority of the night without a drink and it only included 3 cocktails, not really paired throughout the meal. That is the only reason why this place doesn’t get 5 stars. As a hotel, everything about it is amazing and well worth the visit!

From pre-arrival assistance with tour guides and restaurant reservations to last minute help with travel arrangements, the team at the Continentale made our Christmas week visit remarkable. A special thanks to Giuditta Pisani, who kept an eye on lots of details that made all the difference.

The location is perfect for visiting the Uffizi, strolling along the Ponte Vecchio, window shopping or dining at Alla Vecchia Bettola. The rooms are bright and spacious. Our room had a second floor AND a balcony. We also had a bottle of wine waiting for us upon arrival. The staff is always welcoming, accommodating and super helpful. Definitely visit the Relax room!

Good evening, We really appreciate your kind service of the staff of the Continentale Hotel, you made our holidays so warm and comfortable. We felt so cared everywhere inside the hotel and the rooms with the different warm lights, fragrance and the frames,, It is the best design hotel ever! We found it so nice to have a relax and zen space with the nice view inside the hotel and the great service of beauty spa area. I strongly recommend to business people especially as for ladies. Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality and we are looking forward to seeing you so soon. Take care! All the best wishes from Hyeong Sun Moon & Hee Sun Moon

Very nice, modern, contemporary hotel in the center of Florence on the river, literally on top of the Ponte de Vecchio. Beautiful views. The front desk was energetic, friendly, engaging, always smiling and eager to please. Restaurant and recommendations worked very well. The bedroom and bathroom were spacious, the beds, pillows and linens comfortable and the other appointments were accommodating. Close to the major museums and terrific shopping. Good value all things considered. Very nice continental breakfast.
