I stayed here the second week of October and it was lovely. Our room was pleasant with very modern finishes that made it seem top notch. The room was elegant and bright. the bathroom was big and comfortable. The rooftop lounge has great views of the river and the city. The location in Florence is amazing.
My only complaint is that when asked for a restaurant recommendation the staff nominated the BSJ (Borgo San Jacopo) which is located in another hotel across the river. The BSJ was dreadful! We later found out that the BSJ is owned by the same group as the Continentale. A detail they did not mention. The restaurant experience was so bad that it not only spoiled the Continentale but the entire florence experience.
Although the service in the hotel was adequate this sort of dishonesty is inexcusable
