staf was adorable, welcoming, efficient and very kind. they did everything they could for us. even find the taxi we had taken, to find the camera I had forgotten inside, and have it brought back. the situation is ideal, we could visit rome on foot. it is in the middle of everything. and.... they have a top roof bar, with a lovely and romantic vue on rome. I just regret : the price of the "pick you up at the airport" service is really expensive, and so are the visits of rome they provide, with a special private guide.... but... as we were up-grated, as a surprise and a gift, I will not complain about it!! and anyway these were the best holidays, ever!! I will go back to the saint raphaël next time I come to Rome.

We stayed two nights in Rome at this Hotel after a month in Italy and prior to flying home. Hotel was excellent and staff pleasant, competent and extremely obliging. The location is excellent and the hotel is an oasis in a busy part of Rome. We travel regularly to Rome and will stay again at this Hotel.

My wife and myself we love your hotel, which we have known for 30 Years. We do miss the old style ; the renovation was probably necessary and is well done. But please accept a note of nostalgy from the times we used to run over M. Craxi in the elevator...at a time when the design was less modern. Nevertheless, we shall return over and over again...

We loved the Piazza Navona area! The hotel connects to dozens of small streets surrounding Piazza Navona with dozens and dozens of small restaurants and shops. You can walk safely around at night with no problem. We walked to all the sites we visited, Pantheon (which is very close 5-10 min walk), Vatican City, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Roman Forum and the Collosseum. We had a junior suite which was in excellent conditions. In case you don't want to bring your laptop along they have a public PC station with access to the internet (high-speed) you can use free of charge.

We had booked the hotel for three nights however the hotel called a couple of nights before we were to arrive and said they there was a problem as they were upgrading rooms and they were behind schedule therefore we could not stay in the hotel for the first two nights in Rome. They booked an alternative hotel where we were charged the same price, but that hotel was a poor quality compared to the Raphael. This was disaapointing considering we were on our honeymoon. The hotel did upgrade us to a suite for the same price and gave us a free meal on their roof top restaurant (fantastic view across rome at night). The location of the hotel in Rome is second to none.

We spent three nights/4 days in Rome at the beginning of our trip. My husband had never been abroad...I had been to Rome a few years previous to this trip and fell in love with the area around Piazza Navona. When I found this hotel, I knew it would be prefect for the both of us. The staff at the front desk was incredibly welcoming, and helpful in every possible way. The roof top terrace was a wonderful place (albeit a little pricey for drinks, but the food was amazing) to have cocktails and dinner. I can understand, however, why many people are discouraged as to why the room rate does not include a continental breakfast, as the majority of the other hotels do. Other than that, we do not have any complaints!! Say hello to Dario on the roof top!! Always the gentleman. Grazie!! Grazie!!

Expensive hotel in great location but prices are too high in relationship with what you get. Primarily you pay the hotel's good name and service, the really excellent location and one of the best roof-terraces in Rome. Especially standard rooms and bathrooms are very narrow. Separate billed breakfast for EUR 26/Person/day too expensive and does not pay out. Picasso plate collection is fantastic, but I can't see the benefit for the customer paying for it.

There were three minor problems in an otherwise excellent experience: mold on the wall over the shower, a rattle in the air conditioning unit, and no breakfast included in the price.

We stayed at the Raphael twice during our trip to Italy, for the first four days of the trip then two days at the end. Although both rooms were small, they were both cozy, romantic and wonderfully furnished. The location is great, right off the Piazza Navona and close to everything. Althoguh the hotel is located in a very noisy area, we never heard any street noise inside the hotel. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and always eager to assist you ( special thanks to Yurien and Domenico)....susnet from the rooftop terrace is not to be missed. We would return to the Raphael in a heartbeat!

It's just lovely to arrive at an ivy-clad hotel right in town. The rooftop terrace is simply superb. It doesn't matter that the food is average and more expensive than in an equivalent restaurant round the corner. Rooms are truly quiet, if also really small, though there are 2 larger room categories. Pretty much the best hotel I've found in Rome so far.

I would certainly recommend the hotel, we got quite an interesting room with balcony and semi-views and it was nicely decorated and well kept. Bathrooms were excellent and had Bulgari soaps! We got one of the special rates which made it excellent value (for Rome hotels) - locations is brilliant. But I think some of the normal rates are a bit high. The staff recommended a restaurant which was spot on, best meal we had. If you are looking for a good location, smart hotel, without worries, then this hits the mark - if you get the discounted rates!

In my opinion Hotel Raphael is really a great place for a stay in rome. Its location is perfect for exploring this beautiful city. All the sights (Vatican city, fountain of trevi, spanish steps etc.) are in walking distance. The piazza navona and campo dei fiori(flowermarket),lots of restaurants 'al fresco' and beautiful medieval lanes are just around the corner, nevertheless Hotel Raphael offers a very qiet and peaceful place. We really liked the interior design of Hotel Raphael; the reception, the bar and the restaurant are of a simple and pure make, white walls, some paintings, indirect lighting and some antique furniture. Unfortunately the photographs on the web pages can't represent our positive point of view. The rooftop terrace offers a wonderful view over the city. The rooms of the hotel are very charming: handpainted wallpapers with warm colors, comfortable beds and a small but nice arranged bathroom. We spent a wonderful time in Rome and at Hotel Raphael in August and that's low season for Rome, in this way we really got a bargain at venere.com.
