I had orginally booked a room at JK place (really wanted to stay there because of all the rave reviews and accolades they received), but because of it's location, at the last minute I can cancelled the reservation and booked with the Continentale. I'm glad I did, because our stay at the Continental was great!
The location is absolutely perfect - a 10 minute taxi from the train station, a 5-10 minute walk to the duomo, 2 blocks from the Uffizi, and steps to the Ponte Vecchio and tons of great shopping.
The room (we booked a deluxe) was the largest we stayed in while in Italy and it had a great view of the Arno River. The bathroom was very spacious too. The staff was very friendly and hospitable. They knew it was our honeymoon, and sent up a bottle of champagne to our room.
Breakfast was typical, but very good. It wasn't included in the price of our room, but we were given a "promotional rate" of 1/2 off the listed price.
We loved the hotel and our stay there was just perfect. Would definitely stay there again!!
