I booked the Babuino 181 because I read lots of good reviews about it on this site, but after staying there for a week, I can only say that it was average. The location was certainly a plus and the rooms were of good size. And we got sort of connecting rooms which was good because my children are only small. But the breakfast was quite awful and certainly not wroth the €20 per person. And most disappointing of all was the service. Whenever we asked for something, like changing the time of our car booking or getting tickets to the Villa Borghese, we were always given the impression that the effort was quite half-hearted with responses like "ok, we'll try." Well I have certainly seen better service than that, especially after our experience with Andaz in Amsterdam. We stayed there for 5 nights before we went to Rome. There at Andaz, whenever we asked for something, the response was always "Certainly, that's no problem at all." and accompanied by a big smile. We never saw that at Babuino 181.
