Babuino 181, 14-room boutique hotel in the heart of Rome
In Rome, old buildings are being converted into small-scale comfortable hotels. The recently opened Babuino 181 is a great example of this practice. Staying in this 14-room hotel is like enjoying your own private apartment right in the heart of Rome.
Babuino 181 is a small boutique hotel, set in a 19th-century building that was renovated into urban apartments. The hotel has large rooms, complete iPod speaker dock and Nespresso machine. The hotel is the latest addition to Rome Luxury Suites, a hotel group that transforms historical residences by incorporating contemporary art and design.
According to a review by the New York Times, the hotel has no onsite restaurant (plenty of places to eat in the area) and no lobby. There is a sitting room on the second floor, with a Nespresso machine and reading materials, and a concierge is on duty 24 hours a day at the front desk. Breakfast is served only in-room.
The hotel is located close to Piazza del Popolo, Trevi Fountain, Via Margutta, Villa Borghese and the Spanish Steps in the heart of Rome’s shopping area.
