“I'll be back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2012 via mobile

We were upgraded to the room at the front of the hotel with the balcony, we think because of the early morning street noise, but if you're staying in a city you expect street noise, and to be honest it was fine.
The room was stunning, lots of space for two girls to spread out their shopping and a huge bathroom with a shower and bath, towels galore and robes and slippers too.
The newly opened roof terrace for breakfast was lovely as was the choice of food, fresh fruit salad, yoghurts, cereals, toast, ham, cheese, pastries....
The location of the hotel is perfect, two minutes walk from Piazza del Popolo and maybe five in the other direction to the Spanish Steps, and there's a great resturant 'Il Brillo' just around the corner.
I will definitely go back, I've been spoilt now, nowhere else will do for Rome!

A wonderful boutique hotel. Great location, very attentive staff, attractive rooftop breakfast room. We four made good use of the guest lounge which offered coffee and croissants.

Great location with great rooms. These rooms were very contemporary with great up-to-date bathrooms. While our room wasn't huge nor was it cramped. And we were fortunate that they were able to check us in early after a red-eye from the States. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The breakfast is nice and they just opened up their rooftop terrace which was a great way to start a day of sightseeing in Rome. It's a short walk to the Piazza Popolo subway stop. There is some construction outside but we didn't feel that it interfered with our stay. I would definitely not hesitate to stay here again!

We spent the last day of our honeymoon in Babuino 181 in Rome. Awesome room in a great location for exploring Rome or just enjoying the buzz about the streets. Will definitely stay here again!

There are only good things to say about Babuino 181. Huge, stylish and clean rooms, fantastic location, friendly knowledgable staff and perfect location. The older grand hotels may have a to-die-for facade, but to me, rooms are the most important.

This classifies perfectly as a boutique luxury hotel.
