The great reviews on trip advisor helped us choose the Hotel Raffael. It was perfect for what we were looking for. A small boutique hotel in the heart of Rome within walking distance to lots of highlights. Very clean, comfortable and quiet. The front desk staff and Elena the concierge were fabulous! Went out of their way to make sure our stay and visit to Rome was fantastic. Elena was super friendly, knowledgeable and extremely helpful planning our tours and wonderful dining experiences. The best concierge we've ever had. Felt comfortable and relaxed throughout our stay. We were lucky to get a top floor room with a marvelous garden terrace overlooking the neighbourhood. Nice and quiet with plently of privacy. The room itself was a little small, but more than adequate for two of us. Breakfast was great, lots of good fresh selections. Only regret was that our stay was just a couple of days. Will definitely return one day to spend more time. So much more to see and enjoy.
