A great little boutique hotel. I think we found it on Trip Advisor. Nice service. Rooftop terrace for breakfast and evening drinks. We had a primo suite in the annex across the street with our own rooftop terrace. Oh my. One block from Piazza del Popolo. Walking distance to everything. Great location.

We stayed here in August 2014 for three nights. We've struggled to find a good hotel in Rome in the past, but this hotel has resolved that problem for future visits. It is excellently located near the Piazza del Popolo so you can walk to most places. The Classic Suite we stayed in was a lovely room, spacious, modern and... More

We spent 2 nights at Babuino 181 in Rome - what a delightful place to stay!! The people are incredibly helpful and nothing is too much of an effort. Assem was superb in arranging restaurants, transport etc and helping with directions. The book compiled by the owner is a real gem as well and so insightful. I would certainly use... More

We spent a few nights in Rome after also visiting Venice and Florence. We were celebrating our 25th anniversary and picked top notch hotels in all three cities. We stayed in the Gritti Palace in Venice and the St Regis in Florence. The Babuino 181 was somewhat different compared to the others because it is a boutique hotel, smaller, without... More

Love this hotel! I especially liked Guiseppe on the night shift. He was very friendly. The entire staff was great. This hotel is in the best location. Quiet streets, top shopping, great local restaurants nearby. We stayed in a suite and it felt like our own apartment. Much better than anywhere else we've stayed in Rome. Last time we stayed... More

The hotel is very well located as others have mentioned and is easy walking distance to most sights, plus is also close to bus and metro lines. Rooms are spacious, reasonably well equipped and the staff friendly. We had a room on the second floor and faced the street - we did not mind the noise from the nearby bar/restaurants... More

The last hotels I stayed in Rome were old. over-priced, small rooms. This one was completely different - though not cheap. Modern, ample (for Rome) rooms. good service. The only downside was that a concierge gave us incorrect info regarding mass times - and we missed the mass. Apologies accepted;
