With a spectacular view of the river Arno, the Portrait Firenze is located right next to Ponte Vecchio and Via Tornabuoni's alluring boutiques. Elegance, sophistication and utmost attention to detail are redefined in this palatial mansion, portraying Italian haute couture of the 50s, when Florence captivated the world's attention once again. Interior designer Michele Bonan took inspiration from traditional Florentine craftsmanship, to design 37 splendid suites and guest rooms. The simplicity of classic and contemporary lines is complemented by exquisite fabrics and lavish materials, such as linen and cashmere, warm wood and leather.

Our dedicated Lifestyle Manager lets you discover a most unique Florence and the best Italian creativity has to offer. The nearby Caffe dell'Oro, conveniently located right by the river Arno and Ponte Vecchio will be your favorite bistrot for a relaxing breakfast after a good night's sleep and ideal as a starting point to discover Florence.

After spending 10 days at the amazing Portrait Roma for New Year 2019, we were excited to stay 10 days at the Portrait Firenze for Christmas / NY 2020. It is a TOURIST TRAP because all of our complaints have been repeated over and over again since 2016 in the TripAdvisor comments and yet nothing has improved. Why? Because they don't care and it is just a money-making machine. (1) Avoid the Concierge staff. Their advice is substandard & unoriginal. They send you to tourist trap restaurants. In fact, you bother them. They occupy the entire lobby and they do everything to avoir eye contact. We stopped trying after three days. (2) The bathrooms are VERY, VERY OLD! (3) The wood floors in the room are marked by the cleaning staff moving the furniture (huge, deep, metre long marks). (4) Room service is slow - we waiting an hour and two reminders just to get a bucket of ice. To conclude, this hotel NEEDS TO BE RENOVATED & A NEW MANAGER. Unfortunately, I don't think the owner cares. Please send the manager from Portrait Roma to fix this mess.

Hotel's Favorite
This property has really become our favorite in Florence. We come here quite often we are staring to make friends with some of lifestyle team members whose service is really second to none. This time we were assigned a deluxe studio river view with a large balcony to allow us to enjoy the fireworks on New Year’s Eve and we could not be more pleased. They did everything they could to accommodate our prearrival requests and to honor my leaders club Aurelian membership. Prior to our arrival, I was in communication with the lifestyle team for dining suggestions for us to try something new. All of their suggestions are really wonderful and David really took care of us this time. Catalina is as helpful as ever and Mateo is always fun to chat with. We will definitely be coming back in the very near future.

The rooms / suites at the Portrait are sensational. Decor, maintenance, beds (comfort and linen) are perfection. Wake up to a view of the Ponte Vecchio and retreat back here for a relaxing break from all the traditional Florence highlights. Our suite had a small kitchenette (elegantly hidden inside a built in unit) which contained a sink, fridge, microwave etc if you needed that facility. The staff are friendly and helpful and breakfast can be taken either inside or outside on the quiet street overlooking the Arno river. Valet parking is pretty efficient as well (our car usually arrived within 20-25 minutes of calling as they have to park outside the central zone); note: it may take you a couple of attempts to navigate the fairly complicated Florence restricted zones when driving back to the hotel (the hotel includes a pass to this in the daily parking rate). The Uffizi and Dumo are literally within 5-10 minutes walk. Reception staff were excellent and friendly and helped book restaurants and entrance tickets. There is a rooftop bar which belongs to their sister hotel next door which we didn’t discover until too late unfortunately. Can’t wait to go back!

My wife and I were very lucky to visit Firenze and stay at the wonderful Portrait in August . This was our first time travelling since lockdown and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The bedroom experience was not clinical at all but luxurious and comfortable. We wore facemasks throughout the hotel but this was not a problem. We had dinner at Caffè dell'Oro and were lucky to have had an outdoor table with a frontline view of the Ponte Vecchio and oh my, the cuisine was superb. The city was not busy at all so we had a memorable visit seeing the magic of Firenze without the crowds.

Suites were amazing. View on the Ponte Vecchio is brilliant. Cool technology in the rooms. Room service at night should be improved. Reception area is a bit strange. Breakfast is great but should be included.
