“Gorgeous Hotel in Perfect Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

This small hotel comprises 14 suites and is situated on the most up market shopping street in Rome just down from the Spanish steps (opposite Hermes). It is beautifully furnished and designed. Great staff. Excellent rooftop terrace a d bar with views over Rome. Very central location for all the major sites.
Breakfast is Italian style ie mainly cakes and bread which is a minor niggle. Would have preferred toast and more cereals as an option. Also charging extra (8euros per person) for an omelette or scrambled egg is irritating when you are paying 670 euros a night for a room. It should be included or if profits are that tight just increase the room rate accordingly.
That aside loved the hotel and will definitely stay here again when we return.

We stayed for one night following a cruise. This is by far the best hotel I have stayed in recently. The rooms was outstanding, impeccably decorated. All the staff there were fantastic, committed and extremely professional. The view from roof top was amazing!

Would go back to Rome just to stay in this hotel!

Can not speak highly enough about this hotel. The staff was impecable. Some of the rooms are small but extremely comfortable. Its in a wonderful location. And, the breakfast was great!
If you like boutique hotels - it doesn't get any better.

Located a stone's throw from the Spanish Steps, Portrait Suites is beautifully appointed, in a tasteful, contemporary style...not surprising when you know it's owned by the Ferragamo family. With 14 rooms, it has a cozy feel. The suite we had was roomy and comfortable. Breakfast is available on the room terrace iand on the terrace penthouse. The staff is excellent: helpful, warm, resourceful, anticipative of needs and classy. They got tickets, made reservations, provided knowledgeable advice, got taxis. Lastly, when asked if they found a shirt I misplaced, they found it and said they would mail it to me in U.S. for no charge.

I chose Portrait Suites based on all the positive recommendations in Trip Advisor and the hotel lived up to all those great reviews. Staff was extremely helpful and professional, the room was great and the location could not have been better. The rooftop is a great place to sit out and have a drink or to sit out for breakfast before starting your day. Staff was extremely helpful in arranging all the side trips we requested and in steering us to some great restaurants and tips on how to avoid some of the crowded tourists sections of the top sites.

Portrait Suites has a boutique type feel to it. The staff are incredibly friendly, helpful and professional. The rooms are beautiful and breakfast on the roof terrace is a wonderful experience. The hotel is perfectly located minutes from the Spanish Steps and Spagna metro station. The Trevi Fountain is five minutes walk away and the Pantheon and Piazza Navona another 5 /10 minutes further on. Getting to the Colloseum and Forum is easy on the metro and the Vatican and Castel Sant Angelo are a 10 minute walk away. My 10 year old son was welcomed at the hotel and was very happy with the IPad and DVD player in the room. My only tiny gripe is that the WiFi signal was not hugely reliable. I would definitely stay in this hotel again and would recommend it to anyone. Perfetto!

Had a long weekend here with my ten year old daugther. The good people at Portrait Suites took very good care of us.
Perfect location, everything in good taste. Our studio was quiet and comfortable.
The roof terrace is very nice, good breakfast and in the evening you can make your own drinks, wich my daugther loved. And I allways prefer to make my martinis myself.
In my opinion better then The Hassler, wich is hit and miss regarding rooms.
The excellent staff recommended very good restaurants that serve white truffle in season. And my new Prada coat with mink lining and collar was delivered to the room promptly.
Also: I forgot a shirt in the room on departure, and they sent it free of charge to my home.
All in all: excellent and i have found my perfect base in Rome.
