We passed by Rome twice on our recent trip to Italy and stayed twice at the Babuino (a total of three nights). They have two buildings and our rooms (in the building across the street from the reception) were very comfortable, private, quiet, and of a good size for Rome. The location is great, within easy walking distance from Spagna... More

The entrance from the street is a bit underwhelming - but don't be put off- this is a fantastic hotel. We stayed in the biggest room with our 12 year old in an extra bed. There was plenty of space for the three of us although the extra bed is quite narrow so he was probably at the limit of... More

The hotel is well located, in the centre of Rome, surrounded by shops from the-best-in-fashion and beautiful monuments. When comparing the price to the quality of the hotel, it leaves some to be desired, and I will not stay there again on my next trip to Rome. The reason is that whilst the hotel is smart, modern, with a couple... More

It's a real boutique Hotel in the center of Rome. The city is the best city in Italy and maybe also in Europe. You need minimum 6/7 days to visit everything...we stayed just 3 nights so we asked to the good staff some suggestions..they helped us. The room was easy and clean. I hope to come back next year and... More

This was our third stay in three years - obviously we love Babuino 181. The location is ideal- and now the street - Via Babuino - is pedestrian only. The rooms are contemporary, spacious and comfortable. The rooftop terrace is a wonderful setting for breakfast and drinks in the evening. Most importantly, the staff is superb - knowledgeable and extremely... More

I am travelling a lot and closely look at tripadvisor ratings but have seldomly found a hotel where the ratings were so far away from the reality as I experienced it. Calling this simple B&B, which is desperatly trying to present itself as a hotel, "luxury suites" borders on utter hypocrisy . Or on a customer scam. You have to... More

Babuino 181 is a wonderful boutique hotel on one of Rome's nicest streets. Located conveniently within walking distance to some of Rome's finest shops, the Babuino 181 offers excellent service, a rooftop bar with a daily afternoon cocktail hour and some if the most beautiful contemporary rooms you will ever see.
