“Holiday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

Excellent hotel with superb service and location
We had a wonderful view of river Arno from our balcony
From time we arrived till when we left every staff member bent over backwards to assist
Only downside was bathroom and store age area very small for size of room
Would definitely return

I just finished a stay at Portrait Firenze with my wife and four children. It was wonderful. I have stayed at three hotels in Florence, including the Savoy, and this was by far the best hotel of the three. The rooms are spacious and beautifully furnished. They also have the most up to date technology. The service was professional, highly efficient, and welcoming all at the same time. The breakfast was fantastic, as was the food we had through room service. And the location, the location was just absolutely amazing. To wake up every morning to a view of the Ponte Vecchio made our stay even better. And it was a perfect home base for sightseeing. Finally, they were so welcoming to our children. We cannot say enough good things about Portrait Firenze. We cannot wait to return.

This was my second stay at a Portrait Hotel, having loved Portrait Roma. The foyer, rooms, even stairwells, are all beautiful and elegant.

You will want to move in and stay forever.

- excellent location, easy walking distance to everything
- lovely spacious rooms, immaculate housekeeping, Ferragamo toiletries
- brilliant staff, so thoughtful and warm, nothing is too much trouble
- top quality breakfast, one of the best hotel breakfasts I've ever had
- free wifi and an ipad in the room

Any suggestions?
- a kitchenette in the room with a cooktop, but no pot/pan to cook with
- red light was flashing in the bedroom ceiling, smoke alarm I think

What a great experience at the Portrait Firenze. The hotel was beautiful (if you like boutique hotels, vs. the large hotels that is), and the service could not have been better. We were upgraded from a "regular" suite to what the gentleman checking us in told us was his favorite suite in the hotel. When we walked in, we knew why. With views overlooking the Arno, and so much space (we were three people so we did need more space), combined with beautiful decor and great amenities, Portrait and the Ferragamo's have nailed it! We will definitely be coming back!

The Portrait is the kind of wonderful hotel that makes you want to plan a return visit before you've even left Florence. Everything about The Portrait is first-rate -- the beautiful rooms, the friendly, professional staff and the phenomenal location right next to the Ponte Vecchio. The general manager, Giacomo Fattori, and his dedicated staff make this a place you want to return to again and again. We can't wait to come back! Big thanks to Giulia, Francesco, Matteo and Rafael for making our stay so fantastic.

Portrait Firenze just opened and it is great!!! The staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable of the area. From the time we entered the hotel, they took great care of us. The rooms are huge and very comfortable. Our room overlooked the River Arno and Ponte Vecchio.

This is the place to stay when visiting Florence. It is so close to everything. Florence is a great walking city and the Portrait is the place to see it all.

5 star hotel. Has the best location. Overlooks the river and is in the middle of all the shops and restaurants. The staff is very friendly and is committed to a great stay. The room is large which is very unusual for Florence. Well worth the price.
