If you want a real treat of peace and tranquility, beauty and gentility Hotel Raphael is the place to stay to enjoy the wonders of Rome. My husband and I wanted a very pleasant relaxing place to spend two days in Rome to celebrate our wedding anniversary, 41 years and his birthday. The staff couldnt have been more attentive and courteous. Every single person we encountered was over the top polite and nice. This is highly unusual and very refreshing showing it can be done. Take notice other businesses like hotels and restaurants. Gentility goes a long ways to providing good service.
We found the rooms to be very beautifully decorated and comfortable, the little terraces so wonderful to enjoy the Roman roof tops, the breakfast room very attractive and the breakfast good. The roof terrace bar and restaurant also very very nice. There is nothing like seeing the sun set over St. Peters and drinking a glass of Rosso de Montalcino!! Then we stepped up two more stairs to a higher terrace for an incredibly good dinner of gaspacho followed by trout and pasta. The neighborhood is San Estachio which is the most charming of the Roman neighborhoods, the buildings reek with history and old charm. I am way too busy looking up at the amazing architecture than to be interested in window shopping.
It is expensive but for once it seems worth it. We will definitely return.
