Flavors of the '50s are featured at the Hotel Continentale, where you can find a sumptuous tribute to the atmospheres of when Florence was the capital of fashion, thanks to the display on its suites and rooms’ walls, of precious photographs evoking those years; the prestigious signature, that has designed every environment of what is considered one of the best Design Hotel in Florence, is that of the great interior designer Michele Bönan, who has played with the purity of white and clean lines to offer the hotel’s guests a unique emotional effect, enhanced by Renaissance masterpieces that, like paintings, appear on the horizon when you look out from a window or enjoy a refined aperitif at the rooftop bar "La Terrazza", located on the top floor of the hotel inside the medieval Torre Consorti, from where you can enjoy one of the most beautiful views of Florence historic center, with the Brunelleschi's Dome and Ponte Vecchio within reach and sight.
The unmistakable signature of Michele Bönan can also be found at the Gallery Hotel Art, where avant-garde locations await to show you how wonderful art can be when it becomes innovative, ironic and fun. In fact, at the Gallery Hotel Art, modern and sensual creativity distinguishes every corner and allows you to become the protagonist of your passion for contemporary art. Temporary exhibitions, sculptural installations, masterpieces of light and an ever-changing art gallery will accompany your stay in this exclusive Design Hotel in Florence, where its exterior walls, of pure white, become themselves immaculate canvases to be decorated with works of art of great impact and rare beauty.
