We just spent four nights here and I couldn't wait to come home and vent on TripAdvisor. Except that's not what TA is for. Our issues were ours and you need information that will make your choice more comfortable. I'm not so upset anymore so here it is: It's nice and conveniently located.

Unfortunately, we did not stay here, but we wish we did! Trendy, great neighborhood, nice staff and stylish property. We enjoyed drinks and appetizers on the roof and enjoyed the view. Even if you don't stay here, stop in to enjoy the rooftop view, food and great service!

I love the Continentale. This is a wonderful intimate hotel, discreetly located on a small lane right next to the Ponte Vecchio on the Arno. It is extremely stylish and modern. Every detail is impeccable. Our standard room was spacious and extremely comfortable. Everything worked perfectly, including the air conditioning! It was surprisingly quiet considering the location. The staff is...

This is a wonderful hotel in a perfect location! The hotel is very modern, the decor was great, and the rooms were large. Our bed was huge and comfortable, and we had a great view of the river and ponte vecchio. The lounge on the roof was beautiful and service was excellent. Highly recommended.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile

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.
