We spent 2 nights recently at the Hotel Raphael in Rome. While we loved the location, the lovely young lady at the desk whose name began with an M, and the juice machine, there were things about the hotel that really bothered me. The lobby looked worn and not very inviting. We were offered wine and finger sandwiches on our... More

This has got to be the best hotel in Rome. It is located in the heart of Rome right next to Piazza Navonna, and only 5 minutes to the Pantheon. The rooms are spotless, the service is great the staff are friendly, there is more anyone can ask for.

We just returned from a 4 night stay at the Hotel Raphael. There were some disappointments mostly connected to the room. Having read the reviews I booked a deluxe double. Upon arrival I confirmed the room and then was told it would not be ready until 2:30 so we left our luggage and toured the area. Upon returning we were... More

The hotel is ideally placed to visit Rome. It’s in one of the old backstreets, with most of the tourist sites within walking distance. It was clean and tidy and the breakfast was good. The hotels failing is its bedrooms. We booked an up-market “Richard Meier Executive Room”, at a discounted rate of 476 euros per night. It was clean,... More

Since Rome was our first stop on a 15-day vacation, we decided to splurge on this hotel. The location is amazing. It's less than a block from the Piazza Navona. The location and the service are two things that make this hotel worth the money. The front desk offered us a glass of prosecco and finger sandwiches while we waited... More

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
