Portrait Roma — Lungarno Collection

Rome’s gateway to fashion

Sitting on a coveted corner on Via dei Condotti, the city’s preeminent high-end shopping street, Portrait Roma – Lungarno Collection offers both a luxury getaway and a gateway to fashion. The haute hotel comes from the distinguished Ferragamo family, the same one behind the Salvatore Ferragamo fashion house. Fittingly, it sits above a Salvatore Ferragamo store, close to the Spanish Steps.

Of course, you can expect stylish, classic yet contemporary interiors in line with the brand. The 14-suite property was designed by Michele Bonan to showcase the Ferragamo lifestyle and Italian artistry, with photographs of 1950s Rome and the shoe designer’s original sketches on the walls.

But this beautiful, exclusive hotel goes beyond looks. The Portrait Collection focuses on personalized experiences, inspired by the renowned Italian shoe designer (like a vintage Vespa tour à la Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday) and ultra-tailored hospitality (don’t miss the lovely guests-only rooftop terrace with wraparound city views). This chic hotel provides the proverbial key to unlock all of Rome’s best doors.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • First and foremost, Portrait Roma is stylish with magazine-worthy interiors. Each of the Rome hotel’s 14 rooms and suites is a fashion-forward, haute design masterpiece.
  • Ferragamo's love and commitment to the artisanal also shines through in the details, such as hand-stitched leather.
  • From its design to its guest services, Portrait Roma’s main concept is that it is more of a home or a pied-à-terre than a hotel.
  • The 24-hour lifestyle and guest assistant teams (a group of incredibly well-versed and multilingual staff members) reach out immediately upon reservation with a thorough questionnaire and arrival form that asks for basic preferences such as pillow firmness and room temperature to the nitty-gritty such as preferred evening music.
  • Peruse your personal iPad in your room with its 20-plus curated menus (which change monthly) for activities from food and drink to shopping and sightseeing.
