I just returned from a three night stay at the Continentale. We have stayed at other hotels within the Lungarno Hotel Collection, but this was our first stay at the Continentale. It was absolutely wonderful! The view from our room was the Ponte Vecchio - right across the street. Each night we opened the windows and listened to the street...

My husband and I stayed here several years ago (I think 2010) and I STILL hold all other hotels to this standard. It is friendly, modern and in the most perfect location by the Ponte Vecchio. The rooms are well appointed and we had a little balcony off the bathroom overlooking the river. Absolutely romantic!

We arrived at the hotel to a friendly receptionist and concierge took us up to our room (in a very tiny lift). The room was beautiful on first glance but the more you looked the more flaws you found. The shower floor was loose and dangerous to stand on, they put a cheap plastic mat next to it to put...

First time to stay at the Continentale - stayed at sister property Gallery Art Hotel previously. Continentale is very comfortable - good room and good bathroom. Good breakfast across the street at sister property. Very welcoming and helpful staff too. Best though is location - at the foot of Ponte Vecchio. Easy access to everything in Florence.

My wife and i absolutely loved our stay in this centrally located modern hotel. Staff were very friendly and gave us some restaurant recommendations and helped us with some bookings. The rooms were just so easy to relax and unwind in and the bed was nice and comfy. It was a bit of a buzz to poke your head out...

Great spot, right in the centre of town and within walking distance of everything. Bar gets busy early evening, so head upstairs early to secure a spot at the bar with a view. Rooms were a good size (for a city centre hotel) comfortable beds and a good breakfast served in their sister hotel next door. Concierge was great, we...

We managed to get a good price for 3 nights in this hotel via Trivago. Flew into Pisa, got train into Firenze (45minutes) then walked to the hotel, about 10/15 min walk & easy with google maps. The room has great comfy large bed with turn down service. Fantastic bathroom with rainfall walk in shower. The hotel is modern, clean...

Outstanding experience, friendly and helpful staff that made assisting us in any situation a priority. Located in a great area of the town, very easy to get around. Excellent rooms, very quiet when windows are closed despite noisy streets at times (normal for Firenze). Attention to detail. Restaurants from hotel chain are great. Will stay again in the near future...

I've stayed at the Continentale several times and the level of service and amenities have been consistent each time. You can beat the location, just steps away from the Ponte Vecchio, yet tucked away from the hussle and bustle of Florence's busy street. The decor is what I love so much about this hotel, the quirky nod to mid-century decor...

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
