Hotel Raphael, Rome

2 Largo Febo
Rome, 00186, Italy
TEL: 39-06-682-831

A favorite of Italian politicians, the ivy-covered Hotel Raphael is located just outside the Piazza Navona, within walking distance of the Pantheon and Spanish Steps. Inside, the lobby is decorated with a museum-quality art collection that includes Picasso ceramics and paintings by Miró and de Chirico. Most of the 50 guestrooms have hardwood floors and antique furnishings, while the two executive floors—designed by renowned architect Richard Meier—are more modern, with oak, leather, and Carrera marble accents. The rooftop restaurant serves Mediterranean cuisine amid panoramic views of the city, including the Pantheon, Piazza di Spagna, and St. Peter’s Basilica.

Room to Book:

The classic guestrooms are very small, even by Roman standards, making the larger Meier rooms (which also include complimentary champagne) well worth the extra cost.

Insider Tip:

Make sure to visit the nearby Frigidarium for some of the city’s best gelato, available in flavors like pistachio, raspberry, ginger, and bacio (chocolate hazelnut).
