We came across this hotel after seeking good quality at a reasonable price and were very satisfied. We stayed for 4 nights in April and it was a convenient location, very clean, good breakfast included and good service from reception and breakfast staff. The room was quiet and a choice of pillows were available, the shower was good with lots of warm water. Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed here for four nights at the end of March. This is an excellent small hotel with nice accomodations, a helpful staff, and a perfect location! I was expecting our room to be quite small after talking to other people who travelled to Italy, but we were pleasantly surprised with our standard double room! It was a comfortable size and even had a window overlooking Via Urbana. The breakfast was not amazing, but it was a good start to the day. There were eggs, fruit, croissants, cereal and more. The one thing I would have preferred was more fresh fruit instead of canned peaches and such. The front desk attendants, and the very friendly concierge in the morning, were extremely kind and hospitable. We asked for a lot of help with directions and restaurant recommendations and reservations, and the staff went out of their way to accommodate our needs. We found the hotel to be in a perfect location for sightseeing! The Colosseum and Roman Forum are a short walk away. It is possible to walk to most of the sights and neighborhoods in Rome from Hotel Raffaello, but bring comfortable walking shoes! The hotel is also very close to a few metro stops, and we were able to easily use the metro to get to the Vatican. If you need water or groceries during your stay, there is an inexpensive grocery store just two blocks down to the right from the hotel. We stocked up on bottled water there everyday. Our favorite restaurant in Rome was recommended by a gentleman at the front desk. I would highly recommend La Carbonara! It is a short walk from the hotel and prices are reasonable. The pistachio pasta is absolutely incredible! We also dined at Ad Hoc which is number two on tripadvisor. While the food was exceptional, we found the service to be way too slow. This may, however, just be personal preference. We took two walking tours with Maximus Tours and I would definitely recommend this company to see the Roman Forum & Colosseum as well as the Vatican. We did not have to wait in any lines, and we learned so much more than if we had seen the sights on our own. Overall, we loved Rome and were very happy with Hotel Raffaello. It is not a luxurious five star hotel with extra amenities. But if you are looking for a good hotel that is reasonable priced, do not hesitate to book this hotel. I would stay here again and am hoping one day to return!

Hotel Raffaello is nicely located near restaurants and access to shopping and sight seeing. We stayed two nights during our trip to Rome. We had an easy walk from the hotel to the Colloseum. We were able to access many other sights on foot which made seeing the city much easier. The hotel offers wonderful accommodations. We had a room with a balcony and were able to enjoy a glass of wine at the end of a long day. The breakfast is spectacular and very filling.

Dear guest,

We wish to thank you for your kind feedback.
Our position is central and dated of the 19th century, so we can not change the structure, but we hope to offer our guest the most important - good service : the cleanliness is our flagship.

We added new services, that witness our attention to our guests: A service of Concierge, a person dedicated to all our guests from 8AM till 12AM, and a Pillow Menu.

We hope to see you again in Rome,
We send our best wishes,

My family of four (two kids 11 &13) stayed here for three great nights in Rome. The hotel is within an easy walk of Termini station and located in a great neighborhood with inexpensive restaurants. It was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The staff were attentive and the breakfast selection was okay. The location of this hotel is perfect to use as a jumping off point for many of the sites in Rome. We were able to walk to the Colloseum in little more than 15 minutes. In addition, the hotel is within a 2-3 block walk of the bus line that can take you to Vatican City. In the evenings we found a number of family friendly restaurants with outside seating. In addition, we had our choice of gelato shops on the walk back to the hotel. All in all, Hotel Rafaello is a great choice for families.

Room Tip: Families with two or more kids should ask for the quad room.
