Enticing 1950s style in this location near Ponte Vecchio
Enticing 1950s Florentine style
A vibrant and dynamic yet romantic design hotel in Florence, beautifully designed with the energy of the 1950’s. The Hotel Continentale is the place to see and be seen, a catwalk for fashion and art in the heart of Florence. Its décor is based on inviting white hues chosen by Florentine architect Michele Bönan. Throughout, the hotel is hallmarked by refined design and attention to detail, with handmade leather trunks used as a desk, to a witty piece in which clocks become a side table.
The magnificent Sky Lounge Bar is located on the top floor of the mediaeval Consorti tower. It is the ultimate location to meet for a cocktail or a yoga class surrounded by the most beautiful views of Florence.
Rooms & Suites
Rooms and suites are based on pure lines, light and the colour white, taking its inspiration from the irony, fashion and design of the 1950’s. Pictures by great Florentine fashion photographers and creations by famous international designers enrich the 43 rooms and suites. Guests can use free Wi-Fi, and the exclusive bath amenity line Tuscan Soul by Salvatore Ferragamo. The beautiful terrace on top of the Consorti tower invites guests and locals alike to discover the treasures of the Renaissance and its stunning views over Florence.
Lovely black and white photographs can be found throughout the rooms and suites of the hotel. Florentine architect Michele Bönan was inspired by the Sala Bianca of Palazzo Pitti, where great designers such as Schubert, Galiztine, Carosi, and Fabiani would present their work. "I was inspired by the 1950's, the era of the golden age of fashion when Salvatore Ferragamo was at his pinnacle of success . To achieve the aura of haute couture I used pure white and generous use of space to create a sense of elegence. The use of the clean and essential lines throughout the Continentale symbolizes excellence - a perfect window that allows guests to peer out and almost touch the Ponte Vecchio from anywhere in the hotel".
