All romantic visions evoked by E M Forster's 'Room with a View' go out of the window with this hotel. Instead, tradition is surpassed for a minimalist and ultra-slick design.

Think Florence and visions of antique furniture, painted frescos and ornate marble bathrooms spring to mind but Continentale defies such tradition, and its contemporary vibe adds an element of fun to the normal notion of the Florentine hotel.

The decor of the 43 rooms is inspired by the 1950's, with clean lines, crisp white linens and plenty of light. Small touches such as a clock-come-bedside table, black and white photography, and classic films playing on a giant plasma screen in the hall, make this hotel the funkiest in Florence.

La Terrazza Rooftop Bar is the perfect place to grab a cocktail, with unbeatable views over the sights of Florence, whilst the trendy Fusion Bar & Restaurant serves delicious Nikkei cuisine. Positioned next to the Ponte Vecchio, the hotel is also perfectly placed for exploring the sights of Florence.
