Ho soggiornato per due notti al Charmsuite Raffaello e mi sono trovata davvero bene. Camera curata nei dettagli, pulitissima e ordinata, nonché bella da vedere, è situata in un palazzo storico di cui rimangono finiture e solai. E' dotata anche di un cucinotto perfettamente equipaggiato con macchina per il caffè, frigo, microonde, fornelli e qualcosa da bere e mangiare per una breve colazione. La posizione poi è impagabile: appena si esce dal portone ci si trova di fronte Castel Sant'Angelo! Personale gentilissimo e disponibile.
«The best... Faboulous place... Amazing staff» We loved absolutely everything about it. Location, decor, facilities, comfort, cleanliness, I must also say the staff were so amazing, friendly , helpful, happy. A special thank you goes to Nadia such a wonderful lady, so caring and hospitable a true blessing to the company.
I was ridiculously happy with this place. It's on a pedestrian-only street but near everything I wanted to see and the room was very large. Great people run the place. Great value
