Stayed here based on recommendations from various guides and its high rating on Tripadvisor. The service is great, as described by other Tripadvisor members, and the rooms actually look much better than in the candids on this site. The B&B is in a very good location close to the Spanish Steps but a bit away from the crowds, which is nice.

We loved the room, location and staff at Babuino 181. The location near Piazza del Popolo is fantastic as there are many great restaurants (Babette, il Brillo Parlente, il Gabriella, and Ad Hoc) within walking distance. The hotel has great rooms that are nicely decorated and large. We stayed in Room 205 which is located on Via Babuino and has the only balcony overlooking the street and Piazza del Popolo. The room is wonderful and worth a request. It has a huge bathroom with separate tub and shower, dual sinks and a private toilet/bidet room. Complimentary continental breakfast is brought to your room and the Concierge's (Andrea in particular) were very helpful with restaurant suggestions and directions. There is a great deck area on the rooftop level which is currently being renovated into a bar/kitchen. It will make a nice addition to an already perfect property.

Room Tip: Stay in Room 205 which also has a connecting room for families.

Our room at Babuino 181 was beautiful - well designed, highly functional, quiet. It was a fantastic respite from the heat and hustle bustle of Rome. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast (served in room) was a typical continental spread. My only suggestion to the hotel is that they serve each person's breakfast on an individual tray - we couldn't juggle everything on the single tray.

Our stay in Rome was enhanced by our accomodations at Babuino 181. The room was spacious and finely appointed, the staff very helpful and the location right in the heart of the areas that we toured. It was wonderful to find a small hotel with first class amenities in a big city.

My husband and I stayed at Babuino 181 for 3 nights from 7th - 10th September. (Our friends also stayed at the hotel but they liked it so much they're writing their own review!) Our stay should have commenced one night earlier on the 6th but an Italian strike delayed our arrival. When the hotel heard of our plight they went out of their way to accommodate our needs, explaining what they were able to offer us to make sure we had the very best stay possible!

Andrea, the Guest Relations Manager, Vincenzo and Benedetto are just three examples of the hotel's courteous and extremely helpful members of staff.

Because of our delayed arrival we had to change our room for our final night's stay...... OMG the Babuino Suite is awesome!

The whole hotel oozes understated style and attention to detail, I would definitely stay there again given the opportunity!

we came to rome on our 25th wedding anniversary and searched forever to find a great hotel in rome. A friend of ours also searched for us and recommended this hotel. from the location close to the spanish steps and the wonderful shopping just outside the door, this hotel was absolutely fantastic. We loved the staff who were so personable, helpful and professional. we loved the room which was so tastefully decorated and a good size. If you are looking for class, hospitality, a new and fresh hotel located near the best shops and restaurants and right in the heart of the best atmosphere in rome, then look no further than this hotel.

Room Tip: room size is excellent for italy
