The good bits: * Great location * Lovely roof terrace bar/restaurant * Friendly staff * Good, generous breakfast with friendly service * Reasonably large rooms (for a town centre hotel in an old building) * We got a nice upgrade to a 'junior suite' (aka a slightly larger room) * Comfy bed with Tempur mattress * Lovely bathroom with deep...

This hotel was well worth the price. Quality property at the heart of Rome activity. Adjacent to the Piazza Novana. The breakfast is expansive. The staff was friendly and helpful. Choose the suite with a deck. Walking distance to the top attractions. Wi-fi was horrid. Weak and dropped in and out.

My wife and I have stayed in this elegant hotel twice I the past two years. First we were on the Richard Meier floor, which was a treat. This spring we had an exclusive suite which was over the top in the best way possible. This beautiful boutique hotel is in a fantastic location just off the Piazza Navona. It... More

We chose this hotel to be away from the spanish steps and all of the tourist attractions. This was the perfect choice for our stay in Rome. The hotel itself is beautiful and the staff is attentive and so pleasant. The view from the rooftop is amazing and it's nice to sit out and just relax after a long day... More

I cannot stay away from La Bella Roma for too long, before she calls me back and she calls me to the Hotel Raphael. The rooftop terrace provides Rome's only panoramic view of the Eternal City and the location is just superb. Literally, just a matter of steps from the Piazza Navona, which really is the place to be.

This is where you want to stay. Perfect location, perfect service! Loved our suite and loved the rooftop terrace. It's really the best. Look no further. Literally steps from the Piazza Navona, which is the nicest of all the piazzas.

I would say 4.3 stars... It is indeed a beautiful property at an ideal location. We had the R.M Suite with terrace; pricey but well appointed. Beds are excellent. Front desk/room service/bellmen friendly and efficient. A few annoyances: Internet (wireless) needs improvement; service is intermittent at best and I suspect DNS issues as many of my bookmarked websites are simply... More

As many other reviewers have commented this hotel is in a fantastic position just next to the Piazza Navonna. There is a lot to like about this hotel apart from its position. The rooms are a reasonable size for Europe and nicely decorated.(We had a Richard Meier room on the 3rd floor). Good sized bathroom with a walk in shower... More

Hotel rooms were very comfortable and clean. Richard Meyer designed rooms were very well appointed with modern amenities and were spacious, especially by European standards. Staff was excellent - friendly and provided great service. Breakfast was included and was outstanding. Finally, the location right next to Piazza Navona was perfect.

I have stayed in a 5-star hotel in Rome at least once a month for the past 14 months, so I know a lot of Rome hotels pretty well. This was my 5th stay at The Raphael, and to be honest I would stay more frequently if it weren't often fully booked. The reasons I like staying at The Raphael... More

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
