Virtually across the street from the much-pricier Hotel de Russie, Babuino offers attractive, modern rooms and a choice location between Piazza del Popolo and the Spanish Steps.
The rooftop terrace offers a rather light continental-type breakfast, but evening cocktails (wines) are complimentary even for one's visitors and, since no one else was around when I went with two friends, we had a whole bottle of prosecco to ourselves.
The desk staff were charming and helpful. I would go back just for them!
My one complaint was that my room overlooked via del Babuino, and the street noise was considerable, even with double-paned windows.
