“Perfect”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

We stayed 2 nights in the hotel. We enjoyed every moment of it. Perfect room, perfect location, perfect service. Initially, they did not have our room ready by 2 pm, so they apologized and upgraded our room to a bigger one. It was my birthday and as a pleasant surprise they send a campaign and fruits to our room. What can I say our last stop in Rome was very pleasant!

Babuino 181 is a great little hotel in Rome. Right in the high end shopping district and very convenient to everything. They offer free happy hour on the rooftop and rooftop breakfast as well. Rooms are decorated simple modern. Very nice. We would definitively stay here again! Thanks, Teodora, for your help getting to the train station.

This hotel was just perfect. The room was beautiful modern and clean. The location was incredible, a 5 minute walk to the Piazza di Spagna. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. They were so generous and friendly, it gave the hotel a really warm atmosphere. The breakfast area was also really beautiful, especially the Lady with the curly hair who worked there, she was so lovely and helpful. I could not fault this hotel in anyway!

Good service and location with lovely rooms. Beds were very comfortable and rooms spacious with good TV choices. I liked the design of the rooms and finishes. Close to everything and breakfast had a nice choice of food on the roof top terrace. They also had evening drinks which was lovely to relax before dinner. Staff very helpful at all times.

Room Tip: The street side rooms can be alittle noisy but its Rome. We stayed in a deluxe room and had alittle...

First a quick plug for the position of the hotel. Located between Popolo and the Steps, this is our favorite place to be in Rome. We have stayed in the area annually for the past 5 years and love the small streets filled with people and cafes. A bit less hectic than the Veneto or Forum areas, yet an easy walk to all the sites along the Tiber. We prefer the boutique hotel, and Babuino fit the bill perfectly. We stayed in their new wing across the street from the main hotel and found the room to be perfect. A generous new bathroom stylishly designed with shower and large tub complimented a good sized, quiet bedroom. The hotel features a breakfast and evening happy hour at the top of the main building, and it is not to be missed. Beautiful open air space and wonderful offerings/service made this a wonderful place to start and end each day. Staff at the front desk and housekeeping were terrifically helpful and always willing to assist. No complaints about this hotel, our new favorite in Rome!

Room Tip: Our room, #306 faced the back of the property with no views, and a narrow window overlooking a back...

We stayed in room 306 in the annex across the street from the hotel's primary location. The accommodations had recently been renovated so everything was new, shiny and worked perfectly. The rooms were spacious, airy and inviting. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of space for our "things". Breakfast in the rooftop dining area was included. The food was tasty and varied and the coffee was excellent. The service in the restaurant and at the front desk was friendly, prompt and professional. I would definitely stay here again when I want to be near the Spanish Steps and Piazza de Popolo.

Room Tip: Rooms in the annex are new and modern. Rooms in the back are quieter.

We stayed in the second building which was newly renovated. The room was modern in style and very well designed with great use of space. The bathroom was large and comfortable with separate shower and bath also designed in a modern spa-like look with mosaic tiles. The location is hard to beat close to both via condotti and piazza del popolo and the Tiber. Although not inexpensive, it is a great value considering the location and the comfort of the room, a hard combination to find in Rome. I can't forget to mention Sanaya and the staff who is very helpful and friendly. And of course, a nespresso machine in the room and bottled water and Wi-fi --- all free!!! This should be a standard at every hotel!
We did not get a chance to go to the rooftop, but I hope to do so when I return!
