Stylish, modern and at the heart of Florence, Hotel Continentale is the perfect spot from which to explore. Right on the Ponte Vecchio, the city’s oldest bridge across the Arno River, the best museums and galleries are within walking distance. If you enjoy people watching, sit in the Relax Room on the mezzanine floor which overlooks the bridge and the bustle of tourists.
Double-glazed floor to ceiling windows cut out the noise and the daybeds make it a wonderful escape. On the same level, you’ll find a small bar, elegant white lounge and the breakfast room, decorated with spots of bright pink and pistachio green.
In the summer, the popular rooftop bar is where you can start and end your day with breakfast then cocktails. A cosy spa, found in the hotel’s basement, caters to all your skin and body needs. The rooms are sophisticated with white gauzy curtains hanging from fourposter beds and blond wood finishes, giving you the feeling of space and comfort.
