My wife and I travel a lot in Europe and are drawn to Rome for many of the usual reasons - the historical, architectural and sensual splendours of the City. But, equally, we are now also drawn to Rome - especially when in need of rest and inspiration - by the remarkable and intimate little hotel where we've just completed our third wonderful stay in three years, the Hotel Raphael. The hotel is located near Piazza Navona in the fashionable and quiet "della Pace" neighbourhood and occupies an ancient building whose charmingly ivied facade sets the tone for what's to come inside. And that includes an unfailingly warm, knowledgeable and professional staff, superb food, elegant, comfortable and quiet rooms and suites, and a rooftop terrace affording a 360 degree view of Rome where coffee, drinks and dinners are served in good weather. This hotel is extremely well run by its attentive manager Robert Vannoni, which is apparent from the consistency in service and quality of amenities each visit, the long tenure and happy disposition of many of the staff whom we've come to know individually, including the inimitable Steven of the dining room, Richard, dining room manager, Viorica on reservations, Domenico, Anna and Nabila on the front desk, and Zsuanna who smilingly seems to pop up everywhere. After 35 years of international travel, including in top international chains, we feel we've found in this hotel a unique combination of elegance, personality and grace which will keep us coming back.
