When in Rome…

Kathryn Otto and her partner enjoyed a romantic break at
Portrait Roma, set in Rome’s most exclusive shopping district

Our Visit
With this being a weekend break we decided to fly from Liverpool John Lennon Airport. From parking in
their fast-track car park, it took us less than ten minutes to check-in and enter the lounge for a pre-flight drink
which was such a perfect way to start our trip.

After a night’s sleep at an airport hotel due to our flight landing late, we headed over to Portrait Roma Hotel. Our taxi driver explained the hotel was close to
the Spanish Steps which is always busy at weekends so dropped us off at a quaint square nearby, where we
easily walked across to the hotel, avoiding the touristfilled streets. This was a lovely way to take
in the beauty of the city.

We were swiftly checked in with there being only 14 suites in the hotel, you feel that Portrait
Roma is more of a luxury home where you are staying with friends rather than a hotel. We were shown to our room which was airy and bright with all
amenities you could need including a small kitchenette, dressing room and large shower room. After unpacking, we enjoyed lunch on the roof
terrace which included a small selection of sandwiches and pizza which was perfect for us. The views were spectacular, looking out across the city with the Spanish
Steps in front of us. This was by far our favourite space in Portrait Roma, it is only open to residents of the hotel so never gets too busy. We visited again that
evening to watch the sunset which will be a moment we will never forget.

Having selected what we wanted the evening before on the iPad that was given to us at check-in, breakfast was also served and enjoyed on the roof terrace. We
both agreed that breakfast was probably the most pleasant experience we have had in all the hotels we have visited. The presentation of food coupled with the
warmth from the team, ensures you have everything you need but also gives you enough space to wake up
and take in the surroundings.

After a morning of shopping (Rome has every shop you can think of), we decided to go and take in the sights. Rome is a city like no other, steeped in history,
with streets lined with luxury designer stores with unique boutique shops in between. This together with
the exceptional food the city has to offer made this a
perfect weekend for us.
