This hotel was a Gigantic disappointment. We booked two rooms for 4 nights, a single and a deluxe suite. The single was ok, nothing special, but the so-called "deluxe suite" was only barely furnished. It looked like two little rooms cobbled together with absolutely no thought as to guest comfort. A tiny round table and a desk crowded with an electric kettle that took two requests to get working. We had no place to put stuff, so our bags and purses were strewn across the floor. And the bathroom amenities? A single cotton puff, and soap dispensers that needed a major league pitcher's grip to work. This was not a cheap hotel -- the "suite" was over E700/night. We felt like we were students camping out again.
This hotel is ridiculously overpriced. My room was small. Headboard not quite clean. At this price I would have liked a magnifying mirror.window hard to close, and view on dirty back alley. I don’t like to write negative reviews, but at 570 euros per night, traveller’s deserve better. Staff vey nice.
We have been lucky enough to stay at a few R&C. On these standards, not normal rating standards, this hotel is subpar. Rooms are small. Airconditioning underpowered for Roman heat. One elevator for guests and staff- be prepared to walk a lot of stairs. Staff undertrained and indifferent, especially after visiting a R&C property like San Felice or Banfi. On plus side, rooftop bar restaurant very nice, good food. Street to right of hotel entrance one of best walking streets in area.
The hotel has 1 elevator and guests and staff are all using it...Pain in the ass. Rooms are very average and there are not enough plugs for the Pads & Cell phones. The breakfast is very average as well and is 26 euro per person. we will not go back. The staff is friendly and helpful and the location is good but thats it.
Perfection. Relais & Chateau at its best. First, the front desk is extremely helpful and courteous. On several occasions they made special driver, museum and restaurant reservations. The Deluxe Suite with sitting room , marble bath, large closets and writing desk with all computer connection devices met every expectation. The roof top restaurant with great views, food/drink and service is a must. The morning buffet breakfast is delicious. There’s a wide selection of food to meet anyone’s discerning taste. The hotel is just off Piazza Navona but you would never know it. There’s a very special feeling when entering the vine covered hotel. If you want exclusivity, privacy, service, location and beautiful accommodations, the Hotel Raphael is the right choice. I can’t find one fault.…
My travel counselor suggested this gem, and she was absolutely right about everything. Location, kind and trained staff (Mirko at the front desk is extremely service-oriented and friendly) Good restaurants are also near by. Will surely come back and recommend to family and friends.
This is one of the better, more convenient hotels in central Rome. The service is good, though a bit short staffed, and the rooms are nicely appointed. Best of all the the rooftop restaurant which has some beautiful views of Rome, including the Vatican and Victor Emanuele II buildings. Service on the roof is excellent. Our only complaint was the cleanliness of our terrace. When we arrive it was filled with bird droppings. It was never cleaned in our four day visit. The outdoor plant, never watered was partially dead, and the floors dirty. Bathrooms are small. The restaurant is vegan.
Hotel Raphael Rome I have followed this hotel since my first visit back in 2008. Nothing has changed. For better or worse. The slightly quirky charm captivates you, a little wear and tear around the edges just preserves the classic element. Appearance and the roof terrace deliver magic. With all their force, they use the designer Meier for all it's worth. Well, he should have another go on the hotel. All rooms need to be redecorated again. My room Richard Meier Duplex with balcony was superb. Really special layout with a small but warm balcony in the heart of Rome. But again - its need a new round with construction. The TV says it all. The seemingly fancy remote control weighed 10kg and had built-in facilities like pressing DVD and CD... So modern - 15 years ago. Now out of date. Service is good, nice people. Perhaps a little slow Concierge service that constantly responds with an automatic message that does not answer the question. Well - Conklusion is that to the right price you will have a great stay at the Raphael, but not expect any ***** experience. But do you love charm and views - this is the hotel.…
The service was lacking with many errors from transfers, dry cleaning, cancelled airport transfer in error. Needs a complete makeover. It doesn’t approach Relais & Chateaux Hotel standards. The roof top deck is very nice. The location is excellent.
We loved our stay at the Hotel Rafael! The location was great and the hotel staff was helpful and courteous. However, the rooftop bar hostess , Jasmin, was rude and inhospitable. She does not belong in the hospitality industry. I would not recommend the bar or restaurant because of her unfriendly manner. She is a disservice to this otherwise incredible hotel and brand.
