This hotel is very well located, a stone's throw from Piazza Navona that is close enough to restaurants without being loud and is easily walkable to almost all of Rome's attractions. The building was absolutely gorgeous when we arrived in early April, covered entirely with wisteria in full bloom. We were staying for a week along with two other couples... More

This was my second trip to Rome and this time I was bringing my Mother who had never been to Rome before. I wanted to choose a hotel that was in an area that had a feel for "real Rome" and I opted away from those hotels in and around Via Veneto and those this hotel based on it's proximity... More

A true 5 star boutique hotel in Rome. Beautiful room, bathroom, soaps, lobby, etc. Great experience. Check-in took a few minutes so a staff person brought us a plate of cookies while our paperwork was organized. Came down to lobby in early morning to read so wife could sleep and staff person brought great coffee without asking. Very comfortable bed,... More

We stayed here in December, and loved it. The room was nice but small, the bathroom good and clean, and we liked the personal service feel of the hotel very much. The staff were charming and nothing was too much trouble for them - we were allowed to order lunch at 3pm despite being the only diners in the restaurant.... More

I stayed at Raphael last May with a friend of mine and was so taken with the splendor, ambiance & knowledgeable staff that I booked my group's farewell dinner the following Sept 2014 on the rooftop. We were overwhelmed. The Food, staff and not to say the least Quality made our farewell dinner most memorable. I wish I had known... More

I have been to Rome several times. This time I wanted to stay at a luxury boutique hotel and selected the Raphael because of its location next to the Piazza Navona. It was a wonderful experience. I reserved classic double rooms and received a complimentary upgrade to Deluxe double rooms. We were on the 5th floor. The room was newly... More

We spent two nights in Rome for a romantic trip, and Hotel Raphael was perfect. The hotel is classy and comfortable, and the location in a small side street just steps from Piazza Navona cannot be bettered. The staff was polished and helpful, as one would expect from a hotel of this quality. Good breakfast. And above all, the rooftop... More

The location of this hotel is brilliant, very central and all the main sights are within walking distance. Welcome drinks were very welcome! The breakfast choice and service was excellent. The negative points - we had booked a classic room which was very small and furnishings had seen better days. It was uncomfortably hot at night as the air conditioning... More
