I have stayed here many times - love the location near the Piazza de Popolo, the design of the rooms, the luxurious bathrooms, the personal service in a small, more intimate hotel. Breakfast on the rooftop is a lovely way to start the day and offers a nice respite from the city. My only worry is that this place is going to so popular it will be more difficult to book one of their wonderful rooms! And if that is the case, ask them about their sister property Margutta 54, which is just a block or two away and makes you feel like you are in the know with an apartment in Rome.....

My husband, 2 children (ages 9 and 4) and I stayed at Babuino 181 for 3 nights in August 2012 and it was simply fantastic. We had just returned from a one week villa stay in Tuscany and Babuino 181 was a terrific way to end our family holiday.

Although the rooms weren't as large as the rooms at the Westin Excelsior Rome, we found the room more comfortable. The decor is modern and warm. There was a queen bed and a sofa bed which suited our family size. The bathroom was a decent size.

There was a lady at the front desk that was always gracious and helpful (with excellent English). The only minor disappointing incident was that there was a man at the front desk that gave us wrong information (telling us that a restaurant was open on Sunday and when we went there, it was not. We also overheard him telling another customer that nearly everything was open on Sunday when it clearly is not. He clearly had no knowledge of restaurant information). The location was also superb for city shopping as it was 3 mins away from the Spanish Steps. There is also a GREAT restaurant downstairs which we ate at 2 times during our stay. The morning breakfast at the lounge, although only a continental breakfast, was also completely satisfying. We recommend this hotel highly for families with 1-2 young children.

Room Tip: Request for a room on the first floor (which we had) as there is a comfortable lounge on the first floor so when the kids slept, we could use the wifi in the lounge, with espressos etc and not disturb the kids.

My husband and I stayed at Babuini 181 for two nights during the hottest weekend in Rome. The staff was extremely helpful - we arrived 2 hrs before check in and we were told to grab a quick bite to eat and our room would be ready shortly. They kept their word and we were in our rooms super fast. The hotel room was nice, spacious enough for 2 people, and THANK GOD extremely air conditioned. The bathroom was HUGE with a great shower. My husband is 6'5'' and needs all the room he can get. The shower did leak water though but it's not a deal breaker by any means. My favorite part of the room....the Nespresso machine - awesome touch! The location of the hotel is perfect. We walked everywhere and only used a cab when we went to the Vatican b/c we had a tour guide.

We didn't have the breakfast plan which was good b/c we slept through breakfast both days. We did have dinner at Edy's on the first night. It was good, not great. We live in NYC so we have pretty high standards when it comes to Italian food. I highly recommend the beer garden right around the corner from the hotel. They were open really late and we sat outside drank cold beer and just hung out!

Overall it was a nice experience and I would most definitely stay there again on my next trip to Rome.

Babuino 181 was just what we needed on arriving in Rome. A fabulous position just along from the Spanish Steps and just down from the Villa Borghese. All the major sights were in walking distance

The rooms were immaculate - complimentary water, really friendly and helpful people and the breakfast on the rooftop restaurant was a delight

We just recently stayed at the Babuino 181. It is a great location - fantastic street with lots of shopping and restaurants. The hotel is very nice. Our room (and bathroom) were very clean and spacious, and quiet. We had room 103 which was not on the main street. It over looks a courtyard (of sorts) that is not part of the hotel. Too bad that is does not belong to the hotel as I am sure they would fix it up - it really is not a good view. But, the room had many nice appointments - nespresso machine, complimentary bottled water, safe.....The staff was extremely helpful. They went out of their way to assist us with our requests. We would have enjoyed a bar/lounge but were able to find plenty of places outside of the hotel. For European standards we felt that our room and experience was worth the price we paid, and we would stay at the Babuino again.
