The rooms were incredible. The staff were friendly, kind and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful. The location is perfect. It was a charming hotel. The rooms was very modern but tastefully furnished. I had a balcony that I loved. The roof top bars was beautiful. I would stay here again

This long weekend was our third stay at the Raphael and it was just as good as ever. The hotel is a nice size - intimate but not tiny. A great mix of traditional and very modern. Rooms are wonderfully furnished, quiet and super clean. Without exception the staff are wonderfully warm, welcoming and helpful - and it's nice that... More

If location is what your looking for look no further. Walking distance or a short cab ride to everywhere in Rome. This is a boutique hotel that can arrainge for just about everything from private guided tours (highly recommended) to dinner reservations. Richard Meier rooms are well appointed with large bathrooms. I must stress that the Raphael is a boutique... More

Writing this review is so hard, because I wanted so much to love this hotel. The location -- just steps from Piazza Navona, walking distance from the amazing restaurants near the Campo di Fiori, and a hop skip and jump from all the major tourist sites -- is unbeatable. The Richard Meier suite we booked was beautifully decorated, with a... More

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...

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
