A hotel with virtually no frontage or presence and yet inside is luxury and peace. My wife found this through Trip Advisor after I spend ages getting confused about where to stay in Rome.

The hotel sits almost equally between the historic sites of the forum and the Vatican (25 minutes on foot). Its close to the Spanish steps, Trevi fountain and Pantheon (10 minutes). Good if you decide to walk around as we did.

The rooms are recently refurbished and have wi-fi and flat screen TVs with sky and movies in English if you press the right buttons. The beds are large and very comfortable.

I like a good nights sleep and get disturbed by street noise, so we asked for a quiet room and were given 103, which also is used for disabled visitors. This room has no view, being into a courtyard, but is a peaceful haven in a city full of noise. There is still, as in all hotels nowadays, a background of air condition hum but nothing to what you can experience of street noise. The streets in the area seemed (relatively) quiet at night so street facing rooms may be OK as well.

The staff were always polite and helpful, the airport transfer they arranged was excellent and well worth the money for a door to door service in such a busy city.

The only down side is the cold breakfasts which whilst good value (10 Euro for some cold meats, cheese, bread, orange juice and coffee seemed quite a fair price in Rome) were served either in your room or in a lobby area as the hotel has no restaurant. We were told they are adding a roof top area for breakfasts which may remove this criticism and add hot dishes to the menu.

We have been fortunate to have been able visit Rome every year for the past 7 years and we have almost always stayed at one of the Top 10 Trip Advisor hotels in the city without disappointment and I can easily say that this is my new favorite hotel in the city. The location, property and staff are all excellent and we will look forward to returning on our next trip.

A local recommended staying near the Spanish steps as a good central location and after a brief search on Tripadvisor my wife and I booked Babuino for 4 nights in April. The room was very luxurious and although there wasn't a separate room for a sitting area - do you really need one? Bathroom included large bath, great shower and separate WC area. I thought it was good value for money given the size and spec of the room and its central location - you'd pay twice as much for the equivalent in central London. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and had a seemingly endless list of restaurant recommendations. We didn't have a single bad meal and again I was pleasantly surprised by the prices. A very fancy five course tasting menu at "Life" on Via Vita (lobster and the full works) including five glasses of wine each came to 130 Euros for two. Maybe I'm too used to the prices in London but I thought that was good value. Beware of the shops. They are superb - that's where you'll overspend!

This all suites property is terrific. We stayed over spring (Easter) break:
-Classic suite: Not really a suite but a large triple (no separate room). However large modern bathroom with a big tub, rainfall shower stall and separate toilet area.
-Great soundproofing and good 'air'
-Breakfast is delivered to your room, and very generous. Continental or American (includes meat/cheeses). Comes quickly (under 10 minutes).
-Very nice and knowledgeable staff. Great restaurant recommentations (Pietro, Edy, and Buci da Ripetta. Il Brillo) all within walking distance. Only one BAD recommendation Gusto (don't go!!!!). Loud, more expensive than the others recommended, so so food, and the waiter ripped us off by insisting service was not included and he needed an extra tip in cash.
