“Ok hotel, great location”
Reviewed 17 September 2011

I spent three nights with my family at Hotel Anglo Americano in July 2011. We had a family room on the top floor. This was not a standard room with two extra beds crammed in, but looked like it had actually been planned as a family room with four beds. The room was of a reasonable size.

All in all the hotel was ok, but rather a standard mid-quality hotel. Breakfast was a bit below average. Breakfast in Italy is never a big thing, but plasic glasses, things constantly missing on the not too good buffet and a breakfast room so packed that you often had to queue for a table did not help.

We arrived on a Saturday, and the electronic key system had broken down, so we could not get our own key until Monday. Every time we wanted to enter our room, we had to be followed up by someone to open the door for us. A bit inconvenient, but something that the hotel could not help.

Except for the breakfast room, service was generally good, the only exception being a elderly, male receptionist who reminded my of the principal in my old school and made me fell a bit nervous...

The location of this hotel is very good; in the center and quiet.
However, it is bad in any other possible aspect:
- The bathroom is small, no bath (in an ordinary room), no place to shelve stuff, the water at the shower always overflows.
- The breakfast room is too smal; no matter when you come in, it is crouded and noisy; no service at all, tables are not clean; the variety and quality of food is limited, not clean, coffie is not served to the tables so you have to go and wait at the coffie machine.
- In the rooms there is no single piece of paper, pen, brochure, phone directory - absolutely nothing!
In summary, it is absolutely not what you expect to get in a 4-star hotel - even not in a 3-star hotel...

Room Tip: not in this hotel...

I was in Rome for a friends wedding, booked this hotel at the last minute but was really pleased with the hotel. The room was really clean and tastefully decorated, not huge but typical size for Rome. Staff were good too, they kindly pressed my posh frock for no charge.

Stayed for four nights in July. Nice clean hotel with decent rooms. The best part of the hotel is the location. You can walk to many of the major attractions in Rome. We are a family of four and our room was big enough to move around in. Bathroom was not huge but spacious enough. The service was good. We would probably stay here again.

Anywhere down town Rome is busy busy busy. Either way, this hotel has an ok continental breakfast (Complimentary), the rooms are decent, and the tv has a couple of English channels.

Family of four (10, 8), last minute trip to Italy. We had a great time. Summer time, things were crowded, all the venues have some "VIP" option to skip the lines, well worth the price.

Great location. 5 minutes to Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps. One minute to all bus stops.
Lots of restaurants at all price points within a few blocks.

Room was surprisingly spacious with comfortable beds.
Shower little odd, open construction, would flood the BR after 2 minutes, we think it was handicap access.
Huge Breakfast, again pleasant surprise. Scrambled eggs, cappuccino, etc.
Wifi only works in lobby. Grocery store 2 blocks away, great to stock up on "cheap" snacks in the mini fridge.

We were little disappointed in staff. Basically just grumpy. Even by European standards. you can look at our review of Hotel Giglio in Florence and Hotel Scandinavia in Venice for comparison. We observed their interaction with other guests as well while using wifi in lobby. "Allen" was the only one who was friendly. Do not expect a concierge type service, they all spoke English and had appropriate brochures and maps.

We like the location, room, and breakfast enough would probably consider staying again.

Separate issue. We were disappointed by VAS tours, recommended by the hotel. We were stuck due to a Italian holiday and limited train schedule. We expected a "herding" type of tours, but three simultaneous languages, we waited for each language in sequence. For three hours at Pompei we wasted at least 31/2 hours waiting for the tour operator. Would not use again.

A solid "good" rating on my Italian hotel scale. Small, clean and nice decor. Reception desk usually busy, business like, don't like to get friendly, so expect short answers to questions and don't get too conversational or you will experience some rudeness, which is typical interaction in many Italian big city, high tourist traffic hotels and restaurants.. Excellent breakfast. Good location, very walkable to Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain.
