“A very special place with special people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

I'll begin with the location. There is none more convenient in Rome. Close to everything but very quiet and discreet.The rooftop is a special treat. Great views and a great place to have breakfast at the day's beginning and even better to finish the day with a refreshment. The rooms were beautiful, had every amenity one can think of and very quiet. The hotel felt like we were in the Ferragamo home. Very special!
As great the hotel is, the staff is even more special. All the staff are professional, personable and helpful with anything one may need. Every day it seemed they did something that was above and beyond. Everyone was patient and took the time to understand what you wanted or needed. They can arrange everything or provide choices for you to decide. I stayed with a group of seven and everyone was treated well. It was clear the staff enjoyed their positions and the hotel.
I plan to return early next year.

Net
-------
- Eager for a return visit. Definitely the place to stay in Rome.
- The staff were amazing.
- Hotel is stylish
- Location is walkable to all major things

Service
---------
- The service was perfection. Examples:

- Very friendly greeting and registration all done in a nice sitting room while enjoying a cappuccino.

- When talking to the evening concierge about the roof top bar menu we mentioned a dish that sounded good and also mentioned the great pizza smells as we walked around. When we arrived at the roof she had called ahead to let them know what we might like to eat and to arrange for an awesome pizza to be fetched from a nearby restaurant. Delicious. And an example of seamless service. They literally went out and got what we wanted.

- Roof top service was great that evening and also at breakfast.

- The service is very personal and it seems like you've know the staff for a while.

- Departure was equally friendly and effortless.

- Nice welcome basket / gift

Location
-----------
- Excellent location.
- Couple of blocks from Spanish steps
- Was easy to do a walking tour from hotel , to Spanish steps , to collisium and forum and to trevi fountain , on to pantheon , Navarro square, to the Vatican and back along the river.

Hotel
-------
- Very nice boutique hotel

- Modern very stylized feel in an old classic building - great combo.

- Even the smallest things have an attention to styling detail. Right down to salt and pepper shakers and toilet roll holders. Overall very stylish.

- Rooftop bar has nice seating, nice view over the city , and a fireplace for cool evenings.

- Breakfast on the rooftop is a great way to start the day.

Room
---------
- Stylish room with all of the amenities and then much more.

- Windows open so you can enjoy the sounds of the city.

- Nice small ultra modern weight set by technogym - must find where to buy one. Definitely the slickest weight set I have seen and mat also provided.

- Room had a great bar/coffee setup including cappuccino

- Food at roof top bar was tasty.

Tips
------
- Enjoy the roof top bar in the evening.

- Have hotel arrange for car/limo from airport - takes away one big stresser when arriving in a chaotic Rome airport.
If your arriving on easyy expect a frustrating luggage carousel experience.

We were in Rome with our 16 year old son and had already checked into another hotel. We knew instantly this would not be the hotel for us. I quickly got on Trip Advisor and found availability at Portrait Roma. We were skeptical, but decided to walk over and take a look. We really lucked out!. Portrait Roma was not "just OK", but completely fabulous! You could easily pass by it, as it feels as if you are entering someone's home. The staff makes you feel as if you are home, as they are exactly like a family. They are warm, friendly, professional, knowledgeable and inviting! The rooms are spacious with more of a modern touch and beautiful. They have included amenities which makes your stay even that much more comfortable. Most of them came as surprises so I will not reveal. The rooftop terrace is second to none. There is full service with excellent food and magnificent views. We were lucky to find the true gem by accident, but next time we would plan our stay here from the start.

We spent a night here on our way back from santorini. The staff are extremely professional and helpful. The rooms are very tasteful and well appointed. The location is excellent for touring the city. The rooftop patio was a lovely addition to view the panorama of the city by night.

Our stay was perfection. The suite had the most comfortable bed, beautiful linens, spacious bathroom and closet space. The living area was comfortable, the ipad is a nice touch as well as the mini kitchen. Having breakfast on their rooftop terrace with stunning views of the city were a great way to start our morning. The staff was friendly and helpful yet not intrusive. The location is perfect and we were able to walk everywhere. They sent us to a spa at hotel russie and it was fabulous!

We recently stayed 2 nights at the Portrait Roma and it was fabulous!! It is a great boutique hotel that is so close to everything Rome has to offer. From the time we entered the hotel we were treated so well. Alessandro and Francesca were great hosts and help guide to great restaurants and places to visit.

The room was very nice. Breakfast and drinks are served on the rooftop patio. The view is great and overlooking the Spanish Steps.

This is definitely the place to stay when visiting Rome. We will be back.

we had the most amazing time staying in this wonderful hotel and would never stay anywhere else when visiting Rome ! Thank you to the entire staff who went out of their way to book restaurants and make sure that all our needs were seen to, and all this done in a discrete and obliging fashion.
The location is fabulous as you art in the heart of the shopping area and you have easy access to the whole of the city.

Room Tip: just an amazing hotel - you can't go wrong staying in this amazing hotel, perfectly situated jus...
