“BEST HOTEL IN ROME”
Absolutely wonderful, low key but luxurious hotel, 1 minutes walk from Piazza Navona. Superb staff, very comfortable rooms, and the comfiest hotel bed I've ever slept in. It was a treat to find a hotel in Rome with a bath rather than just a shower. The food in the hotel restaurant, whilst more expensive than local tourist-trap places, was very high quality.
“3rd Stay at Raphael”
This is our third time at the Raphael, and we'll keep going back because of the fantastic location for getting around Rome. All the major sites are no more than 20 mins walk, and there is always something happening in Piazza Navona.
This hotel was high quality, in an excellant location for sightseeing and for enjoying good restaurants in the evening. The breakfast was exceptional and was included within the price of the room. This was handy as there was not an abundance of places to buy breakfast or get a morning coffee. However the choice of restaurants for lunch and dinner was exceptional all within 100m. We would definately return. The hotel organised our transport to the airport - it was very efficient and comparable to prices quoted on line - just hair raising in terms of Italian driving.
this hotel was luxurious in every way .excellent service fantastic views from the roof garden .luxurious bath robes friendly fast efficent service cant wait to go back
“good hotel....excellent location”
lovely decor in bedroom although bathroom needed upgrading. small rooms but this is europe after all. very comfortable bed and nice touches in room. excellent location and can highly recommend the restaurant opposite called osteria dell anima, excellent food and excellent service. breakfast was good, cold and hot buffet.
This hotel fully lived up to (& exceeded) our hopes and expectations for our honeymoon. Nothing could be faulted, from the moment the bell-boy saw us walking down the street as we first arrived and rushed to carry our cases. All the staff were very friendly, professional & efficient and their knowledge of English was excellent. We were very impressed with the high quality of furnishing, fittings and decoration of our room, and wew never really got round to watching both flat-screen TVs! Bed linen was changed everyday, and each evening a small box of chocolates was left on the turned-down bed. We just ate breakfast in the hotel, and the range of choice was fantastic. The dinner menu was expensive, but there are lots of very reasonably-priced, traditional Italian reatuarants in the vicinity of the hotel. The gym in the basement of the hotel is very well equipped, and with marble and mirrors all round. 7 floors higher, the view from the roof-top terrace gives superb panoramas over all of Rome. We can easily see why it is so popular to eat up here in the summer. The hotel is very conveniently located for all of the sights of central Rome - a 20 minute walk takes you to the Vatican, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Main shoppping area, the Pantheon, Roman Forum, etc. The fantastic Piazza Navonna is just round the corner - great both during the daytime and the evening. You will find cheaper hotels, but will struggle to find better quality at this price.
“Hotel Raphael, Rome”
A few yards down an alleyway from the touristy buzz of Piazza Navona, this hotel is quiet, peaceful and extremely elegant. We had a most enjoyable time, helped enormously by the friendliness and efficiency of the staff. The only complaint, and it is a tiny one, was that wardrobe space in the room was very cramped and awkward to get to. Apart from that, we had a great time.
“Incredible city, incredible experience, incredible hotel”
We travelled to Rome as a couple on a dream romantic break away - the experience was amazing and the hotel was the key to the experience. Being equidistant from the Colosseum/Forum and the Vatican, 2 minutes from the Pantheon and 10 minute walk from the Trevi fountain, you cannot get a better situated hotel. From start to finish the staff were wonderful and friendly. The breakfast was fantastic for a start of the day "fill up" before hitting the tourist trail. We found that the room (standard room) was lovely, clean and was really comfortable with a large flat screen TV with Sky TV and access to free wireless internet if required. We utilised the hotel's car service in order to get back to the airport - a definite recommendation to any traveller. The amount we paid for the service was in line (if not cheaper) with the quotes we had received from taxis and brought the whole experience to a lovely end. In short, we cannot praise the hotel enough and will certainly be returning to Hotel Raphael on our next trip back to the most wonderful city in the world.
I was very happy to stay at the Raphael. the position is very good and the service was excellent
The Raphael was a wonderful place to stay. The staff were beyond helpful, always polite, and extremely welcoming and friendly. The hotel was charming outside and modernised inside, and was spotless. Our bedroom and bathroom were small, and there was some street noise, but otherwise was fine with all the amenities you would expect. The roof terrace was unbelievable with fantastic views, but beware the cost of drinks! This hotel was in the most perfect situation for walking to all the tourist sites, and was surrounded by cobbled streets full of wonderful cafes and restaurants.
