    This hotel is in a great location within easy walking distance to everything. Upon arriving I was upgraded to a beautiful room with a view of the Arno River. The bed was very comfortabe and the linens and towels were good quality. Great bathroom also. The staff was friendly and helpful.. I really enjoyed this hotel (my favorite of the 3 I stayed at in Italy...) and I am looking forward to staying at the Continentale again.

    Continentale is centrally located in Florence and near the Ponte Vecchio, shops and good restaurants. Its rooftop bar is amazing and the entire place is well designed, clean and has a chic and modern feel. Its a great hotel that marries modernity and culture at the same time. Although a bit on the high side in terms of price, it is complete with facilities and best of all free WIFI!

    The people cleaning the room took some time to replenish our toiletries. Would prefer more timely replenishment.

    Fabulous

    excellent location within walking distance of all the major art sites. a number of comfortable public rooms for relaxing. Good breakfast in sister hotel across the road, excellent bar and first class dinners. Very nice staff.

    not suitable for the elderly or anyone with walking impairment, too many steps none of which had banisters or handrails. The beautiful roof terrace was inaccessible up a spiral staircase. The attractive bedroom was marred by a large intrusive TV in the middle of the floor with a cable to trip over, and the bath lethal, no handgrips for getting in and out.

    Lovely hotel right on the Pont Vecchio - superb location. The door man was (not only goodlooking!) really helpful and carried our bags to our rooms and parked the car. The room above mine's shower leaked into my shower and this was dealt with immediately. The roof top terrace was an added bonus - great views and very generous drinks! The rooms were pleasantly decorated and the air conditioner easy to operate. The corridors were really hot though on the 4th & 5th floors but that was due to the door to the roof terrace being open most of the time and it was really really hot! Had a great time in Florence!

    Would have been nice to have had coffee/tea facilities in the room.

    Fabulous

    We really enjoyed the curtains around the bed, it's a lovely touch. The Sky Lounge is wonderful for drinks once the sun starts going down in the evening.

    The door of the bathroom didn't open properly and the floor of the shower was unstable and moved around.

    We loved everything! The staff was amazing. They were always ready to assist with any questions, etc. They were warm and friendly and made us feel like we were their only customer. The room was very clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The roof top lounge was a perfect way to end the day. We would highly recommend Continentale!

    On arrival we were upgraded to the penthouse suite which was fabulous in every way. The private terrace was wonderful, with great views over the city. The view of the river and the Ponte Vecchio from the large windows in the bedroom was very special. The bathroom was on a mezzanine level, with an enormous bath and two separate showers! Breakfast was excellent (perfect service) and the rooftop bar was a perfect place for a drink at sunset - the snacks served with the drinks were great. The staff at the reception (in fact all the hotel staff) were always smiling, efficient and very helpful. We highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Florence - the location cannot be beaten.

    Location location. Location. I had stayed at the continentale several years ago and really enjoyed my stay. I could not believe the complete make over. I have traveled all over the world and it is one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in. It is worth the money
