At the end of a month long european holiday, we decided at the last moment to book one more night in Rome and decided to stay at the Raphael - we could not have chosen a more amazing hotel.
I have stayed in Rome numerous times from in hotels from the Majestic to the Hassler and a few others in between but the Raphael deserves all the accolades it receives and more.
From the excellent service by the Concierge and check in staff who provided a cocktail and snacks on silverware at reception whilst the paperwork was being prepared, to the unexpected upgrade to a junior suite (the Richard Maier Suite) the welcome after a long drive could not have been more appreciated.
The room itself is fabulous in its understated elegance:
- Curbusier furntiture that is nicely aged
- Richard Maier design
- latex zonal beds
- floor to ceiling Carrara marble bathroom with twin head shower
- Bulgari toiletries
- the absolute elegant best of facilities without being gaudy
This hotel is without a doubt the absolute gem in Rome and to top it off, it is one historic centre street away from Piazza Navona if you really feel like leaving your own private oasis.
As I love Rome, and will continue to return, the Raphael will always be our home away from home.
