We've been there last weekend for the 3rd time in the Raphel - and before about 15 times in other hotels in Rome. Not only the location is excellent, the staff was helpful, friendly and numerous enough even when the concierge desk was crowded by clients. Choose a room of the better categories - the upgrade is really worth the... More

My husband and i saw this hotel on our last trip to Rome several years ago and decided to give it a try after our last stay at the de Russie (which we love but has gotten crazy expensive). The Raphael is lovely. We stayed in one of the modern Richard Meier rooms, which was very nice. Big room and... More

This was our second stop on our honeymoon and we absolutely loved this hotel. From the moment we checked in, we felt very well taken care of. We were offered a glass of prosecco and snacks while we checked in, and the front desk staff (Rita) did a fabulous job recommending restaurants, museums, and other attractions before taking us to...

When you stay at the Hotel Raphael just off the Piazza Navona in Rome, you feel like a wealthy "in the know" Italian, avoiding the more touristy Spanish Steps area in favor of this luxurious gem. The outside is lovely - ivy covered and somewhat non-descript. The service is impeccable and the rooms are spacious and beautiful. The Raphael has... More

Great location off the Piazza Navona. Eclectic decorations, looks just slightly run down at first glance but rooms well maintained, very clean, quiet although in busy area, good breakfast, incredibly helpful and cheerful front desk staff.

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.
