The Continentale is a peaceful haven set in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the beautiful city of Florence and its famous sites. A small and stylish hotel with a relaxing ambience and immediate views of the intriguing Ponte Vecchio standing above the River Arno. Little tranquil lounges where you can 'unwind'. Our large,clean 'white' room with white...

Having tried a lot of hotels in Florence and been continually disappointed... I stumbled across the Continentale and was immediately impressed by the photos. Just trust me, they don't do it justice!!! It is phenomenal! Walking into the room I was immediately impressed by the cleanliness, but on closer inspection, the smaller touches just blew me away. Comfy bed, fabulous...

This was my second stay in Hotel Continentale. The reception was quite wonderful as I was not pre-booked and came in off the street - I was helped immediately and within 6 minutes I was checked into a wonderful clean modern room. I previously stayed in a larger suite with my wife but was alone this time. Even better than...

The Continentale sets a very high standard for modern hotel design, and was, all around, one of the nicest we have stayed in during all our travels to date. Conveniently located right at the corner of Ponte Vecchio (of which we had a view), the hotel is clean, comfortable, professional, and so stylishly furnished that it borders on almost being...

Loved Continentale from the moment we arrived. Very helpful and friendly team, really cool decor, well appointed rooms and the position, overlooking the Arno is outstanding. The roof top bar is great but if its busy you are best to make a booking. We didn't know this and nearly missed out. Overall a really great Hotel

The Continentale, designed by Ferragamo, has a modern European je ne sais quoi style that is refreshing compared to the proliferation of the over the top, crystal chandelier, flock wallpaper interior design so popular all over Italy. Our room, with a view over the Arno, was enormous and very comfortable. The bathroom was large with great towels and amenities. We...

I arrived in Florence and had reservations at the Plaza Lucchesi after 30 minutes of crying because of how dirty and nasty it was I decided to take a walk to find another hotel.

Very friendly and excellent service -- The front desk was super helpful and friendly. When I arrived, I was greeted by a very friendly front desk person who knew my name without me telling him.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood 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.
