My fiancé and had a sensational time when we stayed at Babuino 181 in June 2014. The rooms are superb - spacious, modern, beautiful finishings and clean. The staff are some of the best you will find in Rome, especially the concierge/hotel manager. This is our favourite part of Roma, so the location is perfect - right near the shops,... More

We chose the main building because the front desk service is there as well as breakfast area/ garden terrace . We were happy... More

It was everything we expected and more! Staff we amazing, polite and prompt. Rooms and furnishings were beautiful, well designed and comfortable. Just like being at home with an extra touch of luxe. Loved the area, in the Spanish Steps quarter. Can't wait for an excuse to stay again - already planning our next trip!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and had a great experience-- the hotel rooms were very spacious, clean, and modern. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful in showing us where to go throughout the city and the best routes to get there. The hotel is right in the heart of fancy shopping, just a... More

The hotel is small, lobby very tiny, but typical in Europe. Room size was ok, bathroom was nice and amenities were very good….View was very nice, overlooking via del babuino! Location the best! We would definitely stay there again.

We were welcomed by Teodora who absolutely went out of her way to make our stay perfect!! She made dinner reservations and found restaurants that were wonderful and had air conditioning (a must since it was so hot). Each guest is given a terrific book written by the owner about his secret tips for Rome - good ideas. There is... More

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights ( room 103). The hotel was clean and modern. The staff were very friendly, helpful and always available. The check-in and check-out was quick and with no problem. The staff provided room service twice a day and great help in recommending places to shop, eat and visit. The location of the hotel... More

I was very keen to stay here and I wasn't disappointed. Beautiful big room and bathroom. Excellent facilities with all the mod cons and great detail. We were across the road in 306 which felt quite exclusive although it was an internal room and it felt a little isolated and dark. We weren't sure if it was great because it... More

I stayed one night on a business trip. Great central location, a very nice room. A convenient lounge with coffee and biscuits on the first floor. I also liked the complimentary drink in the evening! I could hear voices from the corridor at one point during the day, though not too loud; and the night was quiet. I appreciated Teodora... More

Amazing - from the moment Ameen confirmed the extra bed within a minute I knew it would be good - but it was better than good. We have stayed 5 star all over the world and the rooms were on a par if not better. The location was fantastic with all the best shops on your doorstep. The bed was... More
