I selected this hotel due to the excellent reviews, TripAdvisor excellence award, location/view, and modern style living. All of my expectations re the above have been met. The bed and sheets are super comfortable even to me with a history of back problems. Also, the architecture and decor is 1st class. But aside from all of the above, what makes... More

What an amazing hotel in the center of Florence just a short walk from the famous Ponte Vecchio. At arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome by Francesco and Carolina.

I recently stayed at the Portrait Firenze with my mom. I booked a superior suite with a river view. The suite was lovely and matched the photos advertised by the hotel. To ensure our needs were met, after we booked, the hotel sent us a survey to fill out. They wanted to know things like what type of pillows we... More

This place was amazing. We were "double upgraded" to what we called the "apartment suite". We had an incredible view of the Ponti Vecchio bridge. Can't get any better than that. Everyday the staff would suggest a dinner place for us, then make the reservation for us. On top of that, the places never disappointed. I would HIGHLY recommend staying... More

We arrived to this boutique hotel with very high expectations. The hotel surpassed all of them. The location is the best. We were a few step away of Ponte Vecchio and a short walking distance of Via de Tornabouni and Via degli Strozzi, for a very amazing shopping experience. Also, major museums, piazzas and palaces are a few minutes away... More

Just stayed at the Portrait Firenze for 4 nights and had a lovely time. Chose the hotel initially for its excellent location-- it is a stone's throw away from the Ponte Vecchio and it is very convenient to walk to many of the important sights in Florence. In the end what impressed me most was the service. From the time... More

Walking distance from historical attractions. Great service. The concierge service makes things happen. Restaurant staff knew what we wanted the previous day for breakfast. Stayed in one bedroom suite, but sofa opened to king size bed. Of course, the staff opens the sofa for you when one is out for dinner. Family of 4 stays comfortably. 2 bathrooms.

Ideal location but otherwise Portrait is overpriced for what you get. The bed was stiff and uncomfortable. The bathroom was overdue for renovation: grout was mildewed and missing in places, wall panels were uneven, and there were places in the ceiling where the drywall was obviously cut out and re-patched poorly. Breakfast and minibar were extras, even though the nightly... More
