Hotel Rafaello

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 19, 2010

Selected this hotel based on previous recommendations. Hotel is typical of European hotels, small rooms, small lifts that delivery you between floors.
Good points
a) good location no more than 10 minutes walk to Termini (main station) or Cavour (Metro station). Also 15 minutes easy walk to Coliseum.
b) good reasonable eateries on Cavour street within 1 to 5 minutes walk from hotel

Hotel Hospitality
a) friendly staff
b) good breakfast but the same every day (continental plus scrambled or boiled eggs, cheese, salami, pastries etc.
c) clean, tidy rooms. you do need need to get a room with a street view or else you may be looking at blank walls or downpipes. Floor 5 has small balconies on some rooms ( we were on 4th floor).

Downside (for us at least)
beds - hard and uncomfortable (may be different in other rooms, (we had room 410)
shower - if you are on the large size getting in and out may be problem. An engineering degree on how to use showers may also be useful but once mastered you can go from shower to spa sprays.

Overall
Worth its 3 star rating plus.

Would we go back - yes
