Babuino 181 is stylish luxury hotel tucked behind a pair of discreet glass doors on the famous Via Babuino, home to Rome’s most exclusive fashion boutiques. The décor is elegant, with original ornamental details such as the restored marble staircase and Art Deco reproductions mingling with contemporary furniture and artwork. Suites are spacious and comfortable, and the rooftop bar is the perfect place to sip a cocktail while watching Roman life go by below you.
A full continental breakfast buffet is served on the terrace, where you can savour an espresso while watching Rome wake up around you. The terrace has a fully-stocked bar, making it perfect for a nightcap lit by the sprawling lights of the Eternal City.
Rooms are spread between the main hotel building and an annexe across the street. Guest rooms are spacious, with a palette of beige, navy, green, gold and light wood giving them a laid-back elegance. Rooms are fitted with Frette sheets, and the luxurious bathrooms are finished with mosaics and marble. It’s worth noting that Via Babuino can get noisy, so if you’re a light sleeper it might be worth trading the street view for a quieter room facing the courtyard behind the hotel.
Babuino 181 is perfect for shoppers, with some of Rome’s finest luxury boutiques sitting beside the hotel on Via Babuino and on nearby Via dei Condotti. You’re right in the heart of historic Rome, near the Piazza del Popolo, and with the extraordinary gardens of the Villa Borghese just a short walk from the door of the hotel. Iconic landmarks the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain can be easily reached on foot.
