The warm and great stuff were great. Breakfast was a treat. Location right on Plazza Navona and walking distance all around rome. Hotel room was a bit damaged but on our honeymoon there was a bottle of cold wine waiting for us with sweet candies as well! Great choice for luxurious vacation.

I would like to comment how pleased I was with the service provided by the staff at this wonderful hotel! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast and the view from the roof terrace were also great. The hotel was also within walking distance of the main tourist attractions of Rome. I want to stay at this hotel for our next trip to Rome. Thanks!!!

I booked a room (Suite Terrazza, room 518) in the Hotel Raphael for 12 nights, from 28 December 2019 till 8 January 2020. On 12 December 2019 my bank card was charged for 1 night stay as a guarantee. On 28 December 2019, upon check in, my bank card was charged for 12 nights of stay plus Eur 100 per day as a guarantee for minibar. I was granted no credit for my 1 night stay deposit. Besides, hotel staff charged me wrong (bigger) amount. It was at nearly midnight after a long working day in Moscow and a flight to Rome so I overlooked it. Next day I check calculations and asked the hotel to correct the total amount and to make a credit for the amount guaranteed on 12 December. Hotel team said that they will liaise with their bank but argued it will take 4-6 weeks. I insisted and they promised to do all their best. Hence, the extra charged money remain blocked. On checking out I was hoping that the hotel make a credit for all guaranteed amounts (13+ days plus guarantee for minibar) and release the difference on by card. However, my card was charged again for 12 nights as actual cost of stay plus some minibar costs. The already paid 13+ nights remain as guarantee! I probably should have refused to pay and call a police for the obvious robbery. But our taxi was already near hotel, we were to catch our flight to Moscow in about 2 hours, and I didn’t want to explode my family into a scandal, partially knowing that all money accounted as guarantee will be released on my bank card anyway upon expiration of 30-days term, according to MasterCard rules. On return to Moscow I sent a compliant to the hotel asking for the immediate payment of 13+ nights guarantee back to me. They provided an apology and some confirmation that the hotel's bank released the money. It was either a fake or the hotel management don’t know how Italian banks work, or the bank didn’t want to follow the hotel's orders. The money were released back to my card only after 30 days: on 12 January (1 night) and on 28 January (13+ nights). So, if you want to stay in the Hotel Raphael in Rome, please be very careful with your money!!!!! Don't let them cheat on you.
