The room and service was more like a 5. It was beautiful and spacious, elegantly decorated, with a large shower and bathtub. The concierge/front deskman Assem helped us plan out our days and he did it with care for our enjoyment of rome. He really made our trip special. Location is excellent, 5 min walk from Spanish steps.

Tip - request to be dropped off at via babuino, in piazza de populo. If you get dropped off on the other accessible side of babuino, you may have a long walk with luggage.

My fiancé and had a sensational time when we stayed at Babuino 181 in June 2014. The rooms are superb - spacious, modern, beautiful finishings and clean. The staff are some of the best you will find in Rome, especially the concierge/hotel manager. This is our favourite part of Roma, so the location is perfect - right near the shops, restaurants and la dolce vita of the Piazza di Spagna. The roof top terrazzo is a great place for breakfast or an evening aperitvo. In short, if you are a couple looking for a great hotel in the heart of the best part of Roma this is hard to top.

We stayed four four nights in the first week of August with our two teens . We were given the choice of connecting rooms across from main hotel or rooms 201 and 301 in main building . We chose the main building because the front desk service is there as well as breakfast area/ garden terrace . We were happy with our choice . Rooms were modern , spacious , clean with very comfortable beds and linens .no problem with city noise - the windows are double thick . Hotel us in a great location . Near taxi stand at piazza popolo, near Spanish steps and good restaurants nearby . Lobby area is very small. Breakfast area is in a roof top terrace which is pleasant . The breakfast selection was adequate but not quite as nice as in our other stops in Italy . The main difference were the choices of meats and cheeses which seemed more commercial than at other hotels we stayed in. There was juice, cereals , nice fresh fruit , croissants and other pastries . A couple of hot items which were not great .
Very nice front desk staff which were helpful in finding restaurants and booking a private tour at the lady minute of the vatican which was excellent . Would recommend the tour company they used .

Overall our stay was great and we would stay there again

It was everything we expected and more! Staff we amazing, polite and prompt. Rooms and furnishings were beautiful, well designed and comfortable. Just like being at home with an extra touch of luxe. Loved the area, in the Spanish Steps quarter.

Can't wait for an excuse to stay again - already planning our next trip!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and had a great experience-- the hotel rooms were very spacious, clean, and modern. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful in showing us where to go throughout the city and the best routes to get there. The hotel is right in the heart of fancy shopping, just a few blocks from the Spanish Steps. It is about a 30 minute walk to the Colosseum and other side of the city-- so if you don't mind walking to see the various sites this is a great location. Don't miss the complimentary breakfast or cocktail on the roof deck!

The hotel is small, lobby very tiny, but typical in Europe. Room size was ok, bathroom was nice and amenities were very good….View was very nice, overlooking via del babuino! Location the best! We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: If you like shopping, this hotel is the best right next to all the best designers!

We were welcomed by Teodora who absolutely went out of her way to make our stay perfect!! She made dinner reservations and found restaurants that were wonderful and had air conditioning (a must since it was so hot). Each guest is given a terrific book written by the owner about his secret tips for Rome - good ideas. There is a wonderful deck/dining area on the 4th floor - drinks and snacks in the evening and breakfast in the morning - relaxing and a fun place to hang out and have your complimentary drink/cocktail. Our room was modern and had everything we needed - spacious bathroom and super comfortable bed. Location is right next to Piazza di Popolo and the restaurants in the area are superb. We stayed two nights and really wish we could have been there longer. Everyone on the staff was terrific, but I have to really applaud Teodora!!!!

Room Tip: I only saw the first floor, but loved that we had a sitting room with snacks for our floor.
