While the location and staff are excellent for exploring the city, the rooms are cramped and uncomfortable, and in need of a serious update. The heating system can't be controled (outside of a +/- 2 degree range) in the room, and the bed takes up almost all the usable space in the room, making it impossible to navigate with luggage....

The Hotel Raphael enabled us to have a most enjoyable stay in Rome. It is beautifully appointed, well-situated near Piazza Navona, and has an air of quietude. While WiFi was somewhat patchy at times, our room was lovely: clean, comfortable and spacious enough. The terrace bar has a magnificent view, but you pay richly for the experience. The breakfast is...

Just come back from long weekend in Rome. Excellent location for the hotel - short walk to Piazza Navona and bus stop to take to Coloseum and an easy walk to Vatican City. Staff were excellent too and we had a lovely room deluxe double with a small balcony. Breakfast buffet was lovely and cocktails on the rooftop bar a...

Convenience location, all major attractions were within easy walking distance. It's so easy to get around from the hotel. When we were there, all taxi companies were on strike. Uber was no show, private cars were too pricy, so we walked to everywhere!! We booked two rooms. My husband and I had a deluxe terrace room. The private terrace was...

I love love love this hotel. Small rooms, perfect winding noisy room streets, wonderful food in the restaurant in the traffic median out front. I have never remembered a lot of detail after trips to Rome, except perhaps unforgettable places like the Forum and Colosseum. Rome feels mysterious and exciting: There is a church or Pantheon or other monument around...

Wonderful location just by Piazza Navona from where everywhere is walkable. The roof top terrace is heaven - you can see the Borghese Gardens in one direction: the Vatican in another. But why serve such pretentious and dull vegetarian food with so many lectures about it in the menu? Simple Italian food (which normally includes vegetarian options) would be so...

This was exactly the type of hotel we were looking for to spend nine days and nights exploring Rome. The location was off the congested streets yet so very close to so many things, especially the Piazza Navona. The evening views from the roof deck were breathtaking. Our room overlooked a quiet street and two wonderful churches. The staff was...

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
