My sister and I treated my mom on a trip to Italy to celebrate her birthday. We spent two nights at Hotel Raffaello. The rooms were very clean and toiletries were provided in abundance. We had a triple room, which consisted of one room that had two twin beds and an adjoining room that had a full size bed. The bathroom was spacious and had a large shower in the bathroom with jets that provided a full body ‘spa-like’ effect.
The front desk staff was courteous and professional. We had many conversations with Massimo to assist us with directions to travel to the various landmarks. Massimo was extremely professional and accommodating. He called our hotel in Florence to confirm our late check in as a courtesy and without our request to do so. His upbeat temperament made our stay even more enjoyable.
Breakfast was plentiful and consisted of various toasts, jams, eggs, poached apples and fresh fruits. The waitresses were friendly and attentive.
We were pleasantly surprised by the close proximity of the hotel to Termini Station (about a 12-minute walk). There were plenty of great restaurants within close proximity to the hotel (although it is a challenge to find a bad meal in Italy!). Bus 64 has a stop that is a few minutes walk away from the hotel and provides transportation near the popular landmarks (e.g., Trevi Fountain, Pantheon), but it is very crowded and after using it twice, we decided to walk. It was one of the coldest weeks on record and due to the chill, we started taking the train by using a 24-hour pass.
Overall, I had a fantastic stay at Hotel Raffaello. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to stay at a boutique hotel that is conveniently located and has very friendly staff.
