What We Love

  • In-room continental breakfast is included in the Jetsetter rate

  • The open fireplace on the roof terrace — the place to sit with a cocktail
  • The collection of Ferragamo sketches and 1960s photos on the walls
  • The exclusive and private entrance on a back street off boutique-lined Via Condotti
  • Intimate town house feel
  • Ideal location for fashionistas

What To Know

  • It’s a great romantic hideaway, good for couples but less so for families
  • The breakfast is room service only, and though lunch and dinner may be prepared by a chef, there are lots of restaurants nearby
  • No pool or spa
  • You can walk to just about any sightseeing spot, so put those Ferragamo shoes to good use

Overview

The Review

The Ferragamo-owned Lungarno hotel group opened its Roman town house outpost in 2006, hot on the heels of a flurry of hotels opened in the family’s birth town of Florence. On a backstreet just off busy shopping thoroughfare Via Condotti, the hotel has earned a reputation for its discreet and in-the-know service.

{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/1495/prop-96588-1314222080-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”Head to the chic rooftop lounge area for a sundowner cocktails and spectacular views.”}On a quest for a peaceful weekend stay of my own, I was met by an understated concierge and taken up to a suite decked out in a palette of lime and gray. As you would expect from such a historic brand, Portrait Suites displays its fashion pedigree throughout the interiors. Exquisite shoe casts are on show in boxes, and I found myself gazing at footwear sketches and black-and-white photos of Hollywood stars trying on models with old Mr. Ferragamo himself.

Designed by Michele Bonan, who’s responsible for the other Lungarno hotels, the five studios and eight suites are all equipped with satellite TV, DVD players and kitchenettes. There aren’t many public spaces or a restaurant in-house, highlighting the hotel’s philosophy that you should be luxuriating in the intimacy of your private domain.

For me the only drawback is that there aren’t great views from guestrooms, as the hotel overlooks a busy shopping street or faces buildings. More than making up for this, however, is the chic rooftop with comfy sofas and an all-white fireplace. Order a preprandial prosecco and soak in the spectacular 360-degrees views of the Eternal City.

This beautiful boutique hotel is really worth 'splashing out' for. From the moment you check in to check out it was perfect. Attention to detail is second to none and the staff are so helpful and friendly. We were upgraded to their largest suite which was the size of an apartment. It is situated 10 seconds walk from the main shopping street and bars, perfect. When visiting Rome we would definitely stay again. Thank you

Always a pleasure

This was my 3rd stay and it is my go to place in Rome. Great location, great staff, comfortable room with nice amenities. For deluxe accommodations in Rome, the prices are in line. I like the comfort of a smaller hotel where everyone knows you.

If you have the opportunity to stay at Portrait Roma, I highly recommend it. They have the most professional, knowledgeable, and courteous staff you could find. The hotel is centrally located to all the famous locations within Rome.

Wonderful and luxurious hotel

This is a small boutique hotel near the Spanish Steps and in the midst of high end shopping. It is owned by ferragamo- the rooms are beautiful and the staff are absolutely lovely. I already have plans to return.
