“This hotel is absolutely wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2006

We stayed at this hotel in September of 2006. The hotel is located in the shopping district in Rome and it is just a couple of blocks from the Spanish Steps. It is walking distance to many of the sites in Rome. I have travelled alot and stayed in many fabulous hotels. This hotel stands out because of the wonderful service and comfort and beauty of the rooms. The interior was designed by the Ferragamo folks. It was modern, beautiful, spacious and luxurious. The bed and bath were tremendous. The staff of the hotel went out of their way to make our stay the best. They took enormous pride in their service. They arranged for marvelous restaurants, (we always sat in the best table), private guides, taxis and maps. They spoke wonderful English and always had a smile on their face. Outstanding! We will never stay at another place in Rome!

I had the pleasure of staying at the Boccadileone Suites also called the Portrait Suites at the end of July.

If you are looking for a hotel with a grand lobby and restaurant this is not the place for you. If your looking a luxury apartment with large stylish modern rooms & bathrooms this is the place for you. Expensive yes but worth the spend.

The location is one of the best in Rome. At the bottom of the Spanish Steps about one block up above the Farragamo Men Store. If it is your first time in Rome you may have a hard time finding it, the building at the time of my stay had no sign for the Hotel as they had only been open a few weeks. Take a cab or car.

Service was excellent. Breakfast is included. The only meal offered at the hotel. It is served in your room or on a roof top deck (which was not open at the time of my stay). Staff was helpful and friendly.

The Hotel atmosphere is best described as exclusive. Rooms are large with modern features such as flat screen TVs and Hi Speed Internet. Bottom line - Very Very Comfortable!

I would highly recommend this Hotel to anyone.

  • Liked — The Location and Rooms
  • Disliked — WiFi had too much security on it hard to get a VPN connection
  • Tips/Secrets — Ask for a Room facing the the Via Condotti - get a View of the Spanish Steps with this type of room.
  • Stayed July 2006, traveled on business
