Continentale
  • Lots of accents of pink add a warmth to the hotels otherwise white and cream decor

  • The Continentale has a phenomenal roof terrace - a very stylish place to be seen with amazing views over city

  • A boutique hotel that still manages to squeeze in 3 treatment rooms so be sure to book a massage after a hard days sightseeing

  • Owned by the Ferragamo family the Continentale is a highly stylish boutique accommodation choice


Owned by the Ferragamo family, the Continentale pays homage to the happy-go-lucky feel of the 50s and 60s with bubble-gum pink accents for a totally zeitgeist experience in the middle of the romantic Italian city.

The 43 guest rooms are lovingly appointed with sheer-draped beds, light wood furniture on oak floors and flowing curtains that catch the Tuscan light. The interior designer created oak desks and chairs trimmed with leather and steel to evoke the feeling of a 19th-century steamer trunk. Simple and functional bathrooms gleam in white with Corian sinks elegantly perched on oak bases. Black and white photographs taken by fashion designers such as Pucci and Fabiani in the 50s and 60s in Florence adorn the guest rooms.

La Terrazza Rooftop Bar is the crowning glory of the Continentale, with spectacular 360 degree views across the Florentine skyline and surrounding hillside, best enjoyed with a drink in hand.
