The staff was wonderful; the room clean and comfortable. The location was exactly what we hoped for ~ easy walking to Rome's favorite attractions.

The room was large and lovely. The housekeeping staff was attentive to our needs. The breakfast selection was excellent. Overall, a truly lovely hotel. Would highly recommend it. And another thing, it’s at a great location- near the piazza Novona and Piazza de San Lorenzo.

Will be back

Pros: Everything
Location: Right off the Piazza Navona and walking distance to many of Rome's top sights.
Great hotel with huge breakfast buffet. Service was top notch with a beautiful rooftop cafe with a view of the city. Room was big enough for two adults and very well equipped.

Wonderful hotel in Rome

Pros: Staff, rooms, rooftop bar, breakfast buffet, location, ambiance.
Cons: I honestly wouldn't change anything.
Location: See above.
We loved the Hotel Raphael! The staff was pleasant, courteous and attentive. The hotel is a beautiful boutique hotel just off Piazza Navona, and in a walking city was conveniently located. We walked easily to the Vatican, Tivoli Fountain and the Colisseum, plus everything in between. We had booked a deluxe double room, but was upgraded to a mini-suite, at no extra charge. We asked that a cot be put into the room so our daughter could spend the last couple of night with us, and it was absolutely no problem, and reportedly very comfortable. Our room was well appointed, very clean and quite spacious. If I had a minor complaint it is that we could often hear street noise at night from our first floor room. The breakfast buffet was a very pleasant surprise, and had a complete and wonderful assortment. If you stay, do not miss the splendid rooftop bar on the sixth floor with a wonderful skyline view from Piazza Venezia to the Vatican! If we are lucky enough to get back to room, we would definitely stay at the Hotel Raphael.

Small gem in quiet corner steps from Piazza Navona

Perfect friendly service. Breakfast was fantastic: everything organic, fresh squeezed orange juice, vegetable juicer, make your own soft boiled eggs, fresh fruits. Not your typical European breakfast.

Beautiful Hotel and Great customer service

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Raphael for two nights. Our hotel room was beautiful and well kept the hotel staff's customer service was excellent. The rooftop deck restaurant offered a breathtaking view of Rome and the cusine was fabulous. I would highly recommend this hotel- it's a step away from Piazza Navona so you can not beat the location.
