We booked this hotel after reading many positive reviews on this forum, with the hope it proved to be as romantic as it looked..it certainly met all our expectations.
After booking online with the hotel direct ( cheapest option ) I did e mail them to ask about parking and the kind of room we would prefer as we really wanted a balcony. E mails were dealt with quickly and the hotel went out of the way to help find the room we required.
Finding the hotel with our sat nav did prove difficult however a call to the hotel gave us another road name which worked perfectly, parking was supplied free a few minutes away from the hotel in a very safe locked area.
Room (the Poem room,825) was stunning, beautifully decorated and cool with a perfect little balcony overlooking the very quiet square in an area of monasteries and embassies. The hotel is very peaceful and We never heard any noise from neighbouring rooms which is unusual with hotels. The bathroom had a lovely shower always hot with great pressure, the towels were also changed twice a day. The room also supplied slippers and bathrobes,a safe and a fridge/mini bar where you could store your own drink. So many have electronic fridges where you are charged if you move a bottle.
The hotel is a 15/20 minute pleasant walk to the colosseum, we purchased hop on hop off bus tickets for two days and finding our way around the capital was reasonable and very easy.
Breakfast was good with lots of options, cooked eggs and bacon,pastries and bread,many varieties of fruit, hams and cheeses and cereals with fruit juices water tea and coffee..
Staff in the hotel were very helpful the receptionist supplied us with maps and information which was really helpful. equally when we asked for a bucket of ice it was delivered to our room within a few minutes!
We have stayed in many hotels,for a city hotel,without a doubt this is an absolute gem! If standards remain I see this hotel climbing further up the tripdvisor top hotels in Rome.
I would also like to thank the hotel for the gift of presecco and strawberries which really added to the very romantic and special stay we had there, If or when we return to Rome we will be returning to the Hotel San Anselmo.
