Rome’s most exclusive boutique hotel, on Rome’s most exclusive street. Babuino 181 is located in the best location in Rome, in the heart of the upscale Spanish Steps quarter. And every bit of it is as chic as its neighboring boutiques. Step between Rome’s top fashion designers, disappear through discreet glass doors… and enter another dimension of Italian boutique luxury. After a day of inspiration touring Rome’s sites, come back to your home in Rome. Sip a cocktail on the brand-new, rooftop terrace overlooking Rome’s beautiful streets. Soak in a spacious marble bath. Slide between Frette sheets. Rest in comfort—and with the confidence that, no matter what you need or what personalized service you require, Babuino 181’s professional staff can make it happen.

Great location and a clean hotel, but Valerio made it special for my family. He was happy to share his knowledge of Rome and history with us. My daughter turned 18 while we were there, and he pulled out all the stops. He truly made our stay special. We had a week in the hotel and it was just perfect.

The hotel was wonderful. Great room size, small boutique feel, wonderful location. And the staff was superb…Valerio and Denise in the breakfast lounge especially, and also the front desk staff. Highly recommend, and would definitely stay here again.

This is a fabulous hotel with a wonderfully helpful staff. Breakfast was just right with a nice selection of eggs, pastries, fruit and coffee selection. The room was very comfortable and had temperature control. A wonderful home base for your Rome stay.

This was our second stay at Babuino 181 and our fourth stay in total at their sister properties. We love the location, which is very central to Spanish Steps, great shopping and Piazza del Popolo. Despite the location, it is quiet at night so no problems with sleeping. The rooms are well maintained with good bedding and bathroom products. The rooftop bar/resto is great for breakfast and evening cocktails. The staff are helpful, and booked local restaurants and airport transfers for us. We will stay here again.

We loved our recent 3 night stay at this hotel. The rooms were decent sized and nicely appointed. The bed was very comfortable. And the air conditioning in our room was fantastic! This was the only hotel we stayed at on our trip with good air-conditioning. In our other hotels, we could never get the room cold enough. At Babuino 181 we actually had to raise the temperature UP from our initial setting to avoid being too cold. We loved it. All the staff was excellent, from the bellman to the front desk to the breakfast servers. I especially want to comment on how helpful Diana was at the front desk in trying to assist me with a problem with my airline reservation. She could not have been more gracious or helpful. The location can not be beat. Its a great area. We will be staying at Babuino 181 again.

We have stayed here in the past and have recommended this hotel to others. Never again. If I could give a zero rating to this property, I would. Inattentive staff, could have cared less about attending to us. Needed our drain fixed in bathtub; never happened. It was a scam; misrepresented that the rooftop terrace would be open. Instead it is being used for outside parties. Noisy. Breakfast is a joke. Scrambled eggs had lots of eggshells in them. Mattress cover is plastic and causes sweats at night. What a joke! What happened to the place?

The room was dingy, dark and small. The window was facing a dark and unkempt interior patio -- quite depressing. The amenities were sparse. When I mentioned to the gentleman at the front desk that there wasn't any soap, he simply shrugged his shoulders. As very experienced international travelers (~80 countries), we had the wherewithal to bring soap. The buffet breakfast looked unappetizing. So we went elsewhere for breakfast. The only highlight of this experience is its location. It is within walking distance of major attractions.

We have stayed at Babuino 181 every time we have visited Rome since 2012 - our 8th time! It was great to visit again after a long absence due to the pandemic. And it continues to be our “home” while in Rome. The staff is so welcoming and helpful - it was good to see familiar faces too. The rooms are so comfortable and breakfast on the terrace is delicious and relaxing. We will be back.
