My wife, daughter and I have just completed our latest stay at this marvelous and superbly situated hotel in Rome. We stayed four nights. This is our fifth stay in about as many years - all have been excellent and this was perhaps the best. We have stayed in a variety of rooms over the years, all very elegant, comfortable and well serviced. This time we stayed in a terrace suite which was roomy and bright, with a view into the Bramante Cloister next door. There's lots to love about the Raphael. It's small, personal, charming, elegant and extremely well run - in a hands on way - by the owner, Roberto Vannoni. It is in a quiet, comfortable neighbourhood conveniently located for sightseeing (about 10 to 15 minute walks to the Colosseum, the Vatican, and the Spanish Steps). It has an amazing rooftop bar and restaurant. And one of the best breakfast buffets we've seen. But the most compelling feature is the uniformly warm and dedicated treatment of guests by the talented staff, many of whom are of long service. To name just a few who were exceptional, there were Steven, Julian, Samir, Zsusanna and Maribel in the restaurant, and Nabila and Andrea on reception. Arriving at the Raphael is like coming home. We can"t wait till our next visit.
