Portrait Firenze, modelled on Portrait Roma, its sister property in Rome, prides itself on giving you an exceptionally customised service and experience from the moment you book. Designed to feel like a home rather than a hotel, check-in feels more like a warm welcome from your host than a formal process, the suite will be your suite with your chosen newspaper, your choice of pillows and sheets, your favourite food and a suggested itinerary tailored to your interests and requests.
The suites are sleek and beautifully decorated with dark wooden parquet floors, elegant grey walls and enormous super king size beds topped with cashmere rugs, flat screen TVs, and a complimentary iPad loaded with essential local information from restaurants and bars, to shops and the latest exhibitions. The sitting rooms are furnished with opulent velvet sofas (all sofa-beds), a work desk, a compact kitchenette and great city views. The luxurious bathrooms are fully equipped with double sinks, marble showers and baths and Salvatore Ferragamo Tuscan Soul bath products.
The restaurant Caffe dell'Oro has huge windows with fantastic views of the bustling Ponte Vecchio, a warm and relaxed atmosphere and serves delicious yet simple Italian dishes.
If you feel like a change of scenery you can dine around at the other restaurants in the Lungarno Dining Collection - specialising in Nikkei cuisine, sushi and cocktails at the Fusion Bar & Restaurant just next door at Gallery Hotel Art, or enjoy a fine dining experience at Michelin-starred Borgo San Jacopo located in nearby Hotel Lungarno.
