In the very heart of Rome, just nearby the vibrant Piazza Navona, there is a five star deluxe celebrated hotel; a new entry in 2010 of the prestigious "family" of the Relais & Chateaux. From its astonishing ivy-covered facade this magnificent "maison" will immerse you in a world of charm located a few steps away from the Pantheon, Spanish Steps and St. Peter's Church: an ideal base to experience the elegance of Rome. Launched as a hotel in 1963 by Spartaco Vannoni (1922-1980), the Hotel Raphael is a real museum of art: paintings, lithographs, sculptures, antiquarian artifacts, a valuable collection of Picasso ceramics and Mayan art may be seen throughout the lobby. Overlooking the roofs, the terrace Bramante is waiting for you to enjoy gastronomic cuisine while contemplating the magnificent view of the eternal city. Be the first to discover the two new executive floors, modern and original, signed by the American Architect Richard Meier.
