“Save-up, it is special!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

I was here for business, but all I could think about was bringing my wife on the next trip. The terrace that overlooks the Spanish steps is magical and very romantic. The quality of the rooms is TOP notch, showers full of power and voluminous water, and the bed linens make you want to live in them. But, the ideal location beckons you on with galleries, shopping, architecture, food and atmosphere. The photographs on the walls add a timeless feel that accentuates the elegance of the hotel: understated and luxurious, and quality all the way!

Stayed April 2013, traveled on business

So much for the hype but little value. Prices are extortionate for what is classed as your average fair. Would have been ideal if there were some extra services. Overall a nice stay but way to expensive.

The rating on TripAdvisor and the below reviews say it all.
If you have a few Euro to spend then look no further, this boutiquish hotel is stunning, rooms with views over the Spanish Steps, a root top terrace for excellent breakfasts and stunning sunsets while sipping cocktails.
The service is definitely the best thing about it, from the moment you arrive to the personalised and friendly check in experience, to the Concierge service to the friendly maids and breakfast people.
Gianluca was a huge help and he made our stay remarkable, we will never forget!
Thank you!

Stayed in Portrait Suites for a long weekend in March. Would definitely recommend this as THE place to stay in Rome. Rooms beautiful with everything you need. Location fabulous, a peaceful little haven in the middle of the busyness of the Spanish Steps. Most importantly though, are the wonderful staff. Nothing too much trouble, both before my stay with helping with restaurant reservations and during the stay with help with directions, suggestions etc. Hotel has a rooftop honesty bar with incredible views over Rome. Loved this hotel and cannot wait to return. Other hoteliers should book a stay and take note of what good service is all about!

This a gem; a quiet, tasteful, discreet and sensual hideaway amidst the throngs of the Spanish Steps chaos. The service is impeccable and knowledgable and personal, without a fault. The design and style of the rooms impressed me more than any other hotel I have stayed at. The rooftop terrace has heavenly views over the rooftops of Rome and bathed in evening light with a glass of champagne, I can think of few other places that compare. Thank you, I just wished we could have stayed longer.

The staff are unbelievable - juba is the king. Nothing is impossible for this team and the place is luxury. The rooms are perfect with everything you good need. Location near the spanish steps is perfect. It feels like a private apartment with a personal staff. Breakfast on the terrrace is a must and the cappacino is sent from the gods!!!!
