“Great boutique hotel”
Reviewed 11 June 2011

Had great stay in Rome in this hotel with it's modern beautifully decorated, roomy accommodation. Couldn't better the location. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Plan to return to experience the rooftop terrace and breakfast area that was being built while we were there.

I want to thank the staff at Babuino 181 for a great Honeymoon visit to Rome. The restaurants you recommend were perfect little family owned with great food. The staff made us feel like they we were the only ones staying there and helped us make reservations and get to our tours on time. They also help us out with cabs letting us know what we should be paying so that we were not ripped off. Thanks again for a great stay and perfect little hotel in a great location. We look forward to coming back!

The Babuino is situated in the heart of the best shopping area in Rome. It is steps from tons of restaurants. The rooms are nice and clean. The closet is very small, the bathroom is very nice and spacious. There are no American plugs and no real amenities. It is quiet and had no problem sleeping. Its a bit far from any real nightlife if that is what you want. It is pretty expensive given no amenities and no view. I did like the very modern feel of the hotel. I would recommend this hotel but its basically a nice and quiet place to sleep which is exactly what we needed.

This is one of the best top hotels we've stayed in. The rooms are large and extremely tastefully designed, providing lots of wardrobe space. The bathroom is large well appointed. The location of the hotel is spot-on. You are in the best street in town, within walking distances to just about anywhere in Rome city. What made it special too was Andrea, the Hotel Manager, who is extremely warm, friendly and helpful. Her staff are equally just as great as Andrea. Breakfast that was delivered to our room was delicious too.

Beds and pillows fabulous- something overlooked by many European hotels. Bathroom very roomy and clean with real wall mounted shower head. Since hotel is new, everything immaculate.

Service was very prompt with breakfast delivered to room both days within five minutes.

Location next to De Russie and Piazza Popolo fantastic.

Highly recommend for no compromise room comfort.
