Babuino 181

A discreet retreat on Via del Babuino, a short stroll from Piazza di Spagna, Rome

With jewellers, perfumers and designer boutiques for neighbours, Babuino 181 promises a chic setting for a luxury Rome city break. What’s more, at this boutique hotel, style doesn’t come at the expense of service. Whether you’re checking in or out or coming back to your room after a day exploring, you can always count on a warm welcome.

At Babuino 181, the rooms and suites pair fine Italian craftsmanship with understated, contemporary design. They’re also wonderfully spacious – and many suites feel like private apartments, with separate living rooms and large, marble bathrooms. Slip on your bathrobe, pour yourself a drink and relax. Or ask the concierge team for in-the-know tips on exploring the local area. They can also point you towards the best local restaurants – after you’ve whet your appetite with a cocktail at the Babuino 181 terrace bar.

Step outside the hotel door, and you’re within easy reach of many of Rome’s must-see sights. Turn left to walk up to impressive Piazza del Popolo, then climb the stairs up to Villa Borghese for views across to St. Peter’s dome. Or turn right down Via di Babuino to stroll towards the Spanish Steps, then on to the Trevi Fountain. There’ll be plenty of boutiques, cafés and gelateria to tempt you along the way.


Enjoy your stay!

Perfect location

The location of the hotel is perfect, the checkin process quick, the beds comfortable and the breakfast very good. The only negative issue is the isolation. You can hear a lot since the doors are not proper doors.

Italian cozy elegance with genuine warmth

Breakfast at the top floor was a memorable experience.Each selection was with quality and the service team was discreet yet warm. I appreciated the room upgrade as an Invited member and the thoughtful welcome amenities. Their lunch recommendation was great too.Highly recommended.

Lovely area of Rome, spacious suite.

Breakfast is served on the fourth floor patio and is outstanding. The staff will make you a perfect cappuccino to enjoy with breakfast which includes eggs, salnon, bacon, procutto, a selection of cheeses and pastries, fresh honey from a block of honey comb, yogurt, cereal, fresh fruit and more. The room Read more[SPLIT]Read lessis sound proof, no noise from the street, and the bed is very comfortable. The neighborhood is also close to the borghese garden, very safe and walkable.

Very central location, w. m. that most of Rome's sights can be reached on food.

Centrally located hotel, allowing the main attractions to be easily reached on foot. Friendly and helpful staff and above all: the performance of the super efficient lady maintenance team.

A unique experience in Rome

Unique experience on our honeymoon, the room was quite cozy, the bathroom excellent and quite large.

Wonderful Rome Experience

What a stay! I spent five days at Babuino 181 and plan to return again. Every detail of my hotel stay was exectuted to perfection, and I'd like to personally thank the entire Front Desk staff for their knowledge and assistance in recommending "must see" experiences, obtaining reservations and ensuring Read more[SPLIT]Read lessthat my stay was perfect in every way. They even went out of their way to obtain a special "Audience with the Pope" authorization. All restaurants recommended were incredible, and Maria's last minute reservation at Il Gabriello truly set the standard. Finally, John Lucca at the rooftop breakfast area was an indispensible asset at virtually everything. More than just hotel staff, he became a true friend. Thanks to all!

My Place to Stay in Rome.

The front desk staff especially JoJo were excellent. They have a "Roman Notebook" with information and favorite places prepared by Alberto Moncada di Paterno which was great and I took it with me. They have a tea kettle and a Nespresso coffee machine(which we have at home) in the room.

Despite having to go outside (just across the street) for check-in, check-out, and (a wonderful) breakfast, we found this hotel to be absolutely first-class for a boutique hotel.

Great boutique hotel in central location

Rooms modern, clean, warm, spacious and overall well maintained. Breakfast is buffet style with reasonable food choices, however staff often missing in the back kitchen, hot food supply not maintained and staff could have been more engaged/friendly. I would still recommend the hotel.
