“Not a typical hotel, but if you are prepared for it, you will be satisfied”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2013

First of all, as said in the category, this is a kind of B&B place and not a typical hotel. The location is perfect, everything is in walking distance and for those who prefer sightseing by walking, will love it. The 2 jakuzzis on the roof are also very good and useful, if the weather is a bit hectic and you have rain/ snow. But don't expect any extra towel, slippers or robe to be prepared in the room... This is B&B, but a luxury one.
The roof itself is wonderfully furbished and established, you an have your breakfast there with a magic view, and this is priceless!!! If you start your vacation in sunshine, on the roof with your coffee/ tea, then you have a great day, trust me. It brings so much joy and happiness. However, the breakfast is very poor, there is no meat, no egg, no fruit, no vegetables... Remember: B&B...
The staff is very kind and helpful, the heating in case you would need it works well (it can be an issue in case of old houses like this one), but truly and honestly, this place is expensive in my opinion and those who prefer standard and typical hotel service (including a wide variety of breakfast choices), should avoid to come here, because they will be unsatisfied...
take care, the rooms are just from the corridor where the "reception" (a desk) is, so if new guests arrive, then you will hear them just like they would be in your room...

Had a marvellous stay in this Hotel. Central, fantastic location, spotless and extremely friendly. We loved it !!!!!!!!! - nearly all of the wonderful sites to see were in a mile radius. Thank you for helping to make Rome perfect.

We were lucky to find Relais Badoer on a last-minute trip to Rome. We were especially impressed by the care Antonio and his staff took to ensure that we were able to access the place (it's tricky by car because it's located within the ZTL), find trusted parking, reserve great restaurants, and generally guide us to a fabulous trip in Rome. The rooms are quite stylish with nice bathroom facilities, and it's a nice option to be able to eat on the terrace overlooking the rooftops of Rome, as well as the site where Julius Caesar was presumably assassinated. My only gripe was that the wifi access was spotty in the room -- sometimes strong signal, but sometimes in the mornings there was no signal.

Highly recommend Relais Badoer to anyone wanting to experience the best Rome has to offer.

I actually did not stay in this B&B, as it wasn't convenient with lots of luggage and being a single woman. But I had a chance to see the room, and view the terrace and both seemed to be lovely with a very accommodating owner. It is just wasn't right for a solo traveler, but imagine it would be very nice for a couple or whole bunch of friends to spread out over the 6 rooms.

Room Tip: request the room with the balcony

Great location and friendly owner. But quite expensive. If you email the owner directly, he'll give you a discount because the online travel agencies take a cut. The entrance was really hard to find. The rooms were quite small as were the restrooms. But they were clean and felt high end enough so that we had a good time. They also have (clean) jacuzzi spas on the roof. We bought a variety of prosciutto and wine and enjoyed the view from up there on a couple nights.

This is a beautiful place to stay in the heart of Rome! Everything is close by and within walking distance.

The rooms are great, some with small balconies and there is definitely a touch of glamour everywhere! The atmosphere is relaxed and charming Antonio and his staff are very attentive-nothing is too much trouble! The roof top jacuzzi is amazing at any time of day but its perfect and very romantic after dark. A glass of bubbly whilst admiring the views of Rome is a perfect end to the day!

We thoroughly enjoyed our annivsary stay and Antonio even presented us with a gift on arrival to say congratulations. It's little touches like this that make this place special!

We will certainly recommend and look forward to staying again on our next visit!

Relais is a superb find in a brilliant area where you can get to all main sites easily by walking - campo di fiori, pantheon, Trevi fountain and coliseum are all nearby.

The staff are very friendly and attentive and Antonio was very kind and went the extra mile to make us happy - showing us the other rooms which were all superbly and individually decorated - he explained to us the history and area and is clearly very passionate about Rome!

The views from the terrace were breathtaking and two jacuzzis a perfect end to a hard days walking and touring this beautiful city! A perfect place to stay in Rome we will definitely be back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this charming accommodation to friends, family or first timers to Rome!
