“Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else”
Reviewed 2 June 2011

A really lovely boutique hotel in a lovely, green, quiet district and yet within easy walking distance of the Forum and other sites. It was a haven of bliss to come home to. There are lots of lovely restaurants within easy walking distance. The staff were very friendly and helpfull. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: They are all individually designed to a theme.

First impressions count! On arrival at reception a cold glass of juice was a lovely welcome. We stayed here for three days in September. Our first floor room was a good size, warmly decorated in the baroque style, great bed and all very clean. Breakfast was taken in the small charming garden, continental style but good quality and plenty of choice. The peaceful location a little away from the hubbub of the city is ideal if you enjoy walking, but it is at the top of a small hill! (Great views of the city round the corner) The staff were all very attentive and friendly, overall a superb experience we reccomend to anyone

The San Anselmo is a wonderful hotel. We loved the location. Beautiful area of Rome. We loved walking around the area. The "keyhole" is around the corner and the beautiful Benedictine monastery across the street. A short walk down to the Rose Garden, Circus Maximus and the Colosseum. The room was very clean and spacious. The bathroom was exceptional by European standards. The breakfast was excellent with a great selection of meats, cheeses, breads, pastries, juice and cereals. We loved everything about the hotel.

Room Tip: In our opinion, all the rooms are great.

The hotel is in a quiet location, our room was small but well appointed, only complaint lacked any shelves or hooks in the bathroom. Staff friendly and helpful and a nice variety of food for breakfast.

Room Tip: Golden room good and has a small terrace

Love the San Anselmo. It's perfectly nestled in a neighborhood within walking distance of many things including the Metro and train stations. The breakfast is excellent, the rooms are charming and comfortable and you feel like you're in a home. Also love the restaurant at the sister hotel around the corner. Don't hesitate, book here!

The Hotel San Anselmo is elegant, lovely, quiet and comfortable. The breakfast buffet is excellent and the staff is friendly and helpful. It is conveniently situated on the Aventine and just a short walk to historic sites and local restaurants in the Testaccio area. Train, bus and metro stops are nearby.

Room Tip: Be sure to check the Internet value deals.

Contrary to recent reviews, our stay at San Anselmo was excellent.

We arrived at San Anselmo exhausted early Saturday morning after using a shuttle service which was surprisingly quick and easy to use. We were greeted with a smile and were told our room was ready before normal check-in time which was such a relief due to our early flight.

Our room was pretty with a roll top bath and four poster bed. We also had a small balcony (perfectly adequate) which overlooked the square outside.
Here are the positives of our stay:
-Very peaceful, no outside noise which I imagine you would get with a more central location
-Large Bed (slightly hard)
-Comfortable towels
-Extremely accommodating and helpful hotel staff
-Great Breakfast with real variety
-Our room was always tidy and a freshly made bed was always present upon our return.
-Despite other reviews, the walk to piramide station took 5-10 minutes and was a small price to pay for such a beautiful hotel location.

Negatives of our stay:
-Two single duvets on a king sized bed, we did not ask for this to be changed but it became extremely irritating.
-Paying for television and internet (These should come as standard for this hotel price bracket) there is however Italian satellite television available for free
-The heating would turn itself on to 24 degrees and made our room slightly warm
-Cost of taxi; it would be good if the hotel ran some sort of reduced priced shuttle/ taxi service to over come this obvious annoyance for guests
-The massage jets in our shower did not work

All in all, a Great stay at Hotel San Anselmo, Please do not be put off by previous reviews, this is a lovely hotel- we will return!
