Hotel Raphael History
From its virgin vine covered facade, this magnificent "maison" will immerse you in a universe of charm near the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps and St. Peter's Basilica: an ideal starting point to experience the elegance of Rome.
Founded in 1963 by Spartaco Vannoni, Hotel Raphaël is a true museum of works of art: you can admire paintings, lithographs, sculptures, antiques and a valuable collection of Picasso and Mayan art ceramics as well as paintings by De Chirico, Morandi and Mirò.
On the roofs, the Mater Terrae terrace await the creations of the chef Ettore Moliteo to let you taste organic, vegetarian and vegan gastronomic cuisine, with dishes made from raw materials and strictly seasonal products, with one of the most suggestive views in the world, inside of a frame marked by the most famous domes of the Capital, from San Pietro to the Pantheon.
The hotel rooms are all recently renovated and elegantly furnished, capable of evoking comfort with an ancient flavor. All rooms are equipped with private bathroom with tub, parquet, and some with a small balcony or terrace
