A perfect honeymoon! Hotel Raphael's location, hospitality, and wonderful rooms made our trip even more special. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. Can't wait to go back! Thank you Hotel Raphael for an amazing honeymoon!

We arrived after check in time but there was along delay before the room was ready. Despite making it clear we were celebrating 46 years of marriage ( clear implication we were probably over 60 ? ), we were told we were being up graded to a balcony suite.....the suite was a duplex with a bathroom ( small) on one...

We returned to the Raphael for 8 days in May after staying 8 days 2 years ago with high expectations especially as we were now in the R&C club 5C. No upgrade from the RM Jr. suite was available despite the Euro 4000 non refundable booking made on Xmas day ( nice present). A welcome drink was offered but unavailable... More

When we arrived to hotel Raphael, reception was very friendly and attentive. However, They asked if we wanted the welcome drink in the lobby and we said yes but the drinks did not come after about 5-7 minutes so we had it in the room instead. The room is very quaint and pretty. The soaps in the bathroom are very... More

The Raphael is the perfect intersection of old world charm and modern convenience. Add a great location and excellent staff and you have a perfect recipe for a wonderful place to stay in Rome. When we entered the hotel to check in, they offered us a drink rather than rush us to our room. We had just flown 12 hours... More

We really enjoyed our stay. All the staff were professional and helpful, the breakfast was amazing, the terrace a great place for drinks with wonderful views and friendly and humerous service, and our upgraded room (thank you) was perfect. The hotel location just off the Piazza Navona could not have been better for exploring the City. We can't wait to... More

Recent reviews are more negative about this hotel than our experience last week. The lobby was hectic when we arrived. Our drink of choice - orange juice - came quickly and did not require a signature. Our room wasn't ready - we were early - but all was fine when we returned in a couple of hours. Our room was...

We stayed 4 nights here after staying at 3 other Relais & Chateux properties in France and Italy. We've also stayed at various great 2 and 3 star hotels in our travels. From our experience this is not a 5 star hotel let alone deserving R&C status. We arrived at around 4pm having driven from Sorrento. The reception was awful... More

We stayed here for a quick two nights of city sightseeing after spending 5 days on the Amalfi Coast. The location is simply perfect. We walked everywhere from here, never taking a taxi until it was time to head to the airport. We especially loved the proximity to Piazza Navona, which we visited several times for a drink or souvenir... More
