Eden for Your World travel advisors Kasra Esteghamat and John Oberacker have been to Rome numerous times. Four to be exact. And every time, “fall in love a little bit more” with the eternal city, always a discovery. But it wasn’t until their most recent visit that they finally stayed at Portrait Roma. “We loved it,” says Kasra. “The location – super easy to get to most of the hubs and piazzas. And, of course, the intrigue.”
“Portrait Roma doesn’t look like a hotel,” Kasra continues. “And certainly – checking in, with cocktail in hand – doesn’t feel like one. There are no real public areas – except the terrace for breakfast and pre-dinner drinks. And the whole ambiance feels like a luxury apartment with a butler. Of course, being Lungarno – and Ferragamo – every fabric, every piece of furniture and art is tailored and Italian dreamy. The best of contemporary and cozy.
“The attention to detail is simply extraordinary. But the true standout was the hotel staff – who seemed to know who we were. Not only by name, but by preferences. And made us feel so at home, spoiled us. They were gracious without being in our faces. A perfect blend of anonymity and great service.
“Of course we can’t say enough about the rooftop terrace with view of Spanish Steps, along with the skyline of Rome. WOW! Or the great size of the rooms. Or the rooms with balconies. Or how much we love this hotel.
“Portrait Roma is perfect for travelers who’ve never been to Rome before, or people who like quiet and private spaces. You do not get the ‘hotel’ experience here. You don’t get all the bells and whistles of bars and spa. What you do get is privacy, quiet, luxury, location, service and a great bed.
“Low key people who want keep a low profile would find Portrait irresistible in Rome.”
