For those of you who like Old World elegance, steer clear. If however you are looking for something on the trendy side, The Continentale is for you. I found it so spartan, that it likes character. However, the staff make up for the Ikeaish decor (it's not the best of contemporary furniture) with there genuinely warm personality...Bravo. I won't go into detail about driving into the pedestrian zone where the hotel is located. My GPS went crazy. I called the hotel and they guided me in step by step, like the Space Shuttle. My very comfortable room had amazing view of the Arno and entrance to the Ponte Vecchio. I sacrificed a view for lots of pedestrian street noise, which stops by 11pm. Many reviewers have complained about the 25 euro Continental breakfast, but for 13 euros I had an all you can eat breakfast across the street at their sister hotel The Arts Hotel, which also has an amazingly good Fusion restaurant. It was so good, I ate there twice. Very good cocktails too, and many locals, which is a good sign. Roof bar at the Continentale with spectacular views. I only went to have a look as I was very happy at the Fusion bar...! I would return as the location is perfect, friendly staff, and great breakfast. Oh, for their prices, I would have expected free bottle of water or fruit basket. Maybe on the second visit..!
