I have always loved this hotel -- have stayed there 2-3 times over 20 years. Great location if you want to be near the Baroque Rome highlights, and very helpful staff. Rooms are compact but very clean and comfortable.

We liked our room on the 3rd floor(European) - that's the 4th floor to Americans. This hotel is located on a street with lively foot traffic. The first night, I did not realize that I needed to close the shutters and found my self awakened by a variety of sounds. The following night, I wised up, closed/locked the shutters and... More

We loved staying at the Hotel Portoghesi. The management was very accommodating and you can't beat the location. Breakfast on the roof was lovely and we really enjoyed walking out our door to all the great sites.

Twice this trip and many more stays at the Portoghesi and no complaints. The place is safe and secure for a woman traveling alone, and there are several restaurants within steps of the front door. I agree with everything Jeanne H says in her review. The dedication to making certain your stay is perfect is what makes the Portoghesi so... More

Always stay here! Clean, comfortable, friendly staff, great breakfast room and most importantly location, location, location! At end of street Forno bakery is a must stop every day. Do stop into Portoghesi church next door. It is beautiful!

This hotel has the best location in all of Rome. It is a clean, more than basic hotel but in one of the best locations in Rome. We walk everywhere when we are in Rome and you can easily walk from this hotel to the Pantheon, the Vatican, even the Coloseum (as I like to walk). Piazza Navona is just... More

I have stayed at this hotel 7 times and it is the only place to stay in Rome! I waited to write this review because I wanted to post it closer to the time people will be considering their summer plans. The location is the best in the city! You can walk absolutely everywhere. And so close to Piazza Navona... More

This delightful hotel is within easy walking distance to the piazzas we love to visit in the evening. We walk everywhere in Rome and this hotel is centrally located. Quiet, comfortable room in the back, with updated bathroom. The staff is very friendly and the coffee delicious. The rooftop patio was relaxing. The only downside is that the breakfasts are... More

We've stayed at the Portoghesi many times and while the hotel is indeed very well located and it is predictable, for someone considering it for the first time, it is very important to understand that rooms can be quite different. We have twice stayed in rooms in the back and while they are quiet (this can be very important in... More

Rome isn't cheap. This hotel isn't outrageously expensive. Book ahead 2-3 months! Stayed 4 nights here in October 2013. The best things about it are its very central position, rooms over the back are so quiet, and the staff are very nice and helpful. The rooms are rather small and boxy; the breakfast was so bad that we had a... More
