Is this the smartest escape in the fashionable centre? One glance at the immaculately dressed clientele and you could be forgiven for jumping to that conclusion. Not that you will see much of them, for there are only eleven guestooms and three suites: it is a very private place too. The Financial Times described the Portrait Roma as "a paen to Salvatore Ferragamo", and the spirit of the great shoemaker lives on both in the smart Italian style and attention to detail.
Photographs of his work and glamour girl clients adorn the walls. Guest rooms are decorated with the elegant simplicity that only the Italians seem able to translate into comfort. Instant recovery from retail therapy in the Roman luxury of the '50s.
