simply put, if you like discreet luxury, take pleasure in the tiniest details, excellent design, and warm, professional staff, you will LOVE this place!
why i loved the place:
1. central, yet discreet: a 5 minute walk from the Spanish steps, 10ish to the Trevi Fountain, and you can walk to the Vatican in about 20-25.
With Babuino, there is no outward flashiness - its a discreet entry on a snazzy street, like the entry to your exclusive apartment.
the service is also discreet. breakfast to your door, a traditional breakfast or fruits, muesli and yoghurt (quite filling - they'll send croissants as well, if you want) if you prefer. freshly squeezed orange juice, certainly didn't taste like stuff out of a can.
2. impeccable design and still cosy: the rooms are fabulous. we had 202, one of their suites, and it was absolutely lovely. every detail, from the lighting, the stylish lamps, generous walk-in closet, personal nespresso machine, the enormous (and very comfortable) 4-poster bed, even the window shutters, are immaculate. the bathroom is the size of most rooms, a tub you actually want to lie in, or the 'rainfall' shower.
if you want the big marble hotel lobby, this may not be for you. but if you want your own cozy, snazzy apartment for a few days as you explore Rome, and want to look forward to coming back to your room every day, this is the place!
