With only 4 days to enjoy Rome, this hotel really helped make our experience in Rome a great one. So much to see and do in Rome and with the location of this hotel being so central we were able to walk and enjoy so much of this beautiful city.
Great location being a short walk to Colossium. However room was quite small and we could hear everything thst was happening in next doors bathroom as the walls were so thin. Strangely our room was adjacent to the lift but we could not hear that
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Raffaello. It has a wonderful location, very close to the Termini train station and Termini and Cavour subway stops. Little did we know that we selected a trendy part of town, with excellent restaurants and bars! The concierge staff is excellent. We particularly appreciated Elena's help and advice during our two week stay. Her recommendations were spot-on! When she recommends a taxi, do it!
The room was much larger than we thought it would be, immaculately clean and quiet! The air-conditioning was perfect: just the right temperature and quiet.
We have to agree with all of the breakfast reviews. The food was fresh and plentiful. What pleasant wait staff!
Bring your comfortable shoes or sandals and hit the street! The cobbled roads are not even, so be prepared. We were so close to just about everything! The Colisseum, Roman Forum and so much more were a walk away.
There is no doubt that we would stay there again. Thank you for making our trip such a success!
"Beautiful botique hotel close to, well, everything"
Stayed in a deluxe double room which was clean, spacious, beautifully and simply decorated with an excellent view and spacious, modern bathroom (including the world's most refreshing shower).
The location of the hotel is simply perfect. Five minutes walk from the colosseum, perhaps 30 from Castle Sant-Angelo and the Vatican. The room was well-priced for the location, and while the rooftop terrace restaurant is perhaps a little expensive, the food is of excellent quality (and portion size is more than generous) and the view is wonderful.
The best compliment I can give is that I wouldn't even bother considering staying elsewhere when I visit Rome again.
We were very lucky to get a room in this hotel at the last minute. Having experienced a problem with my original booking at another hotel, it put our visit to Rome back on track. On arrival I was greeted by very friendly staff who checked me in swiftly and set me up with a complimentary tiramisu and ice cold water.
The Superior Room we had was opposite the main Hotel, and was very beautiful, with a fabulous shower and lovely bed and bedding.
WiFi was a little intermittent, but I have to be honest I didn't really need it, so didn't bother to see if I was doing something wrong, or follow up on that.
Breakfast was included, and served on a very sociable small roof terrace. Continental buffet, tea and coffee, and a choice of cooked eggs. It set us up perfectly for the rest of the day. The staff were lovely, and conversation between guests flowed easily.
There's also a very pretty 'roof-top' garden tucked away out the back.
Every evening there was a very civilised 'happy hour', again served on the roof terrace, which was great for another chat with other guests before popping out for dinner.
Check out the hotel's hidden gem behind reception during your stay.
The staff really took care of us, and we really cannot fault this lovely venue!
Great location - 5 mins from Termini main train station with also Metro and bus links. 10-15 mins walk from Colosseum. Right beside the majestic Basilica St Maria Maggiore.
Hotel staff very pleasant and helpful.
Rooms decor a bit tired but clean so didn't bother us.
Most interesting history - has it's own chapel and was where one of the Popes spent some time.
WiFi wasn't great for us on upper floors.
Overall good value and would stay here again if in Rome.
The heart of Ancient Rome, all roads led to the Forum. Visitors flock here to walk the streets where Julius Caesar once trod when this was the centre of commercial, political and judicial life. Nearby, the Colosseum, described by Lord Byron as 'the gladiators' bloody circus', is the world's most famous amphitheatre and the most impressive of all Rome's buildings and ruins.
