ROOMS & SUITES: 43
Owned by Ferragamo, the modern design of Continentale evokes the optimistic ‘Dolce Vita’ fifties and sixties.
The Continentale, with its exclusive visual and designer characteristics, recalls and emphasizes the positive cosmopolitan character of the utmost Italian spirit, creates a glamorous environment and a fascinating experience. The hotel proposes itself as an intimate and cozy ‘drawing room’, a meeting place for the new international nomads where the spaces rich with a contemporary and detailed interpretation, evoke a feeling of the 1950′s. A property marvellously located overlooking the Ponte Vecchio and the Corridoio Vasariano, equipped with 43 rooms, a spectacular Penthouse and a large number of rooms with a terrace that overlook the river or the Florentine roofs. The Sky Lounge ‘Terrazza dei Consorti‘ for total relaxation or for a cocktail, with a breathtaking view of the sunset over the River Arno, makes for an unforgettable ‘must’. The design of the rooms, in a balanced mix between hi-tech and soft design creates a mood with modern lightness and brightness outlined through the use of soft long veils hung around the beds.
