Hotel Portoghesi

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 15, 2013

The hotel location is excellent. The rooms are clean and in good working order. Breakfast and the rooftop terrace where breakfast is served is a real bonus. The front desk staff speaks excellent English, is prompt and courteous. The first morning we were woken early by construction crews starting work at dawn on the street in front of the hotel. I was disappointed that they were unwilling to arrange for an early breakfast or picnic style option, e.g., melba toast or croissant, butter, jam, when we had to leave the hotel before 7AM to catch a train. This was the only place during our 9-day trip across Italy where we found the Italians (2 different front desk managers) to be unhelpful. For our next trip to Rome we will look for a different hotel; however, I wouldn't rule out staying here again--especially if they drop the price.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room in the back of the hotel where it is less noisy.

This hotel is centrally located to enjoy all of Rome. Wine shops and restaurants nearby. The rooms are clean but small however when in rome hopefully you wont be spending much time in your room anyway. Would highly recommend it if traveling to Rome.

Hotel Portoghesi is a great place to stay in a city the size of Rome. Very quiet and a five minute walk from the Pizza Navona, famous for it's fountains. The staff is very helpful and the rooms are very nice. Our room, for a double, was 135 euro and for Rome that is a great deal for a nice hotel.
There are restaurants close and a couple of local bakeries that were just wonderful.

Room Tip: Reserve in advance.

I have stayed at the Hotel Portoghesi five times, which says something about why I return. It is a quiet hotel but also near the hustle and bustle of Piazza Navona and the Pantheon, and close to lots of restaurants and shops. I have always found the staff friendly and helpful. The rooms are small but they are very nicely appointed and the bathrooms are all new. I look forward to a return visit in May 2013, this year!

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Portoghesi for four nights in March 2013. The hotel is tucked away on a quiet street in one of the most amazing neighborhoods in Rome. Lots of unique shops and restaurants are very close by, in addition to major sights such as the Pantheon and the Vatican. Our room was very comfortable, spacious, and very quiet. All hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, and made our stay much more enjoyable.

This quaint boutique hotel is perfect for visits to Rome. Walking to almost any Piazza from the central location is convenient and the late evenings in nearby Piazza Narvona or Campo de Fiore are great for people watching. Also, the continental breakfast on the roof-top garden cannot be beat. Can't wait to go back for another visit.

I love this hotel and location. They serve a nice breakfast on their rooftop which has a wonderful terrace. The cafe at the corner of I think has better cappuccinos the Santa Eustache. You are in the middle of everything!!!!! Book early for peak travel times.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms facing street....great views in a Medieval Rome way
