The Raphael has always been my hotel of choice, both in my own name and with my partner. It is not cheap, of course, but its understated luxury makes it a pleasure to stay in: it brings together the fascinating contradictory aspects of Rome: modern style and fine antiques; proximity to the beautiful, humming Piazza Navona yet absolute peace next...

We had an amazing time celebrating our 20 year anniversary and my 55th birthday at the Raphael! First of all we pleasantly were upgraded to a deluxe suite which was a wonderful surprise. To further be amazed...after we came home from an afternoon of sightseeing, management had set up in our room a beautiful table of champaign and appetizers for... More

Trying to select a hotel in Rome is daunting as I have never had a firm recommendation from friends or clients. Most people find the hotels to be substandard in Rome. In fact, people assume the rooms will be small, the service slow and the noise too apparent. I must have rethought we where we were staying, changing our reservations... More

This hotel is in a class by itself - the very best. Absolutely amazing in every respect, from the wonderful check-in to the incredible and unique rooftop terrace with unparalleled views of the Eternal City. The rooms are quite stunning and large with beautiful bathrooms - the Richard Meir suites. We thank everyone at the entire hotel from the charming... More

We stayed here on our last night of traveling in Italy. We had stayed in Relais and Chateaux hotels and had assumed because this one was part of that group that it would have been great. The hotel is run down - tired - no one comes out of the hotel when you arrive to greet you - it took... More

I travel to Rome for work twice a year, staying in all sorts of place, but my favorite spot bar none is Hotel Raphael. One short block off Piazza Navona, covered with a cascade of lavender flowers in the spring, the hotel boasts lovely statues and art in the lobby and while the rooms are small, they are well-appointed. Staff... More

Located just outside Piazza Navona. Quiet street, comfortable updated rooms, friendly staff, nice breakfast. Hotel façade is covered with ivy. Just beautiful. No complaints. Stayed here for one night prior to a cruise. Would definitely return. Price was reasonable for Rome.

Loved this hotel. The staff was amazing and very friendly. We took a suite and it was stunning. Loved the proximity to everything. The breakfast was great. Make sure you have a drink on the roof top. It's one of the best views of the city. Also the check in was really nice - we were greeted with a glass... More

I lived in Rome many years ago and would always advise visitors to come in either May or October if they wanted to see the best of the city, without the throngs of tourists and high temperatures. So, quite how I ended up visiting with my family in mid August ~ a definite 'no no' ~ I'm really not entirely... More
