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... More

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... More

Inside the Continebtale hotel just on the corner of the "ponte vecchio" this terrace with a view on the arno river and the palazzo vecchio is great. Open to public even not belonging to hotel the place is glam and offers a good variety of quality cocktails. The cost 19€ per cocktail is high, but the location is unique.

Great setting for drinks before dinner, views of sunset over the city and river. Drinks were rather pricey, not sure why our group didn't get the nibbles that were provided to the overbearing Americans at the next table.

A little on the pricey side, but very nice. Located within easy walking distance of most of the sights tourists want to see in Florence. Breakfast is very good, located in the building across the courtyard. Nice and quiet and very comfortable.

The location is awesome, in the most busy part of Florence. But the hotel is perfect because it is quiet, peaceful & really beautiful.

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.
