San Anselmo styles itself as a four star property. In some ways it is. In others it falls well short of what one might expect of an international standard 4* establishment.
On the plus side the entire property was very clean, the staff were excellent and the rooms are of good size and well furnished. Breakfast was pleasant, without being outstanding.
On the downside there are few public areas other than a small terrace, an equally small bar and a breakfast room. There is no resident's lounge, no restaurant and no coffee shop. Internet access is a huge irritant ....... access is via system generated username and password, which seems to expire every 24 hours, necessitating a daily call to Reception for refreshed logon details.
Our room, 806, was a courtyard room, possibly a converted staff cottage. The bathroom was huge and directly underneath the bedroom; reached via a steep flight of marble steps. The bath itself was essentially a big hole in the floor, tiled in brown mosaic and entered via three more steps. It was at least 4 times the size of a regular bath. There were no doors at the top nor bottom of the stairway!
The property is in a quiet and lovely residential area approximately half a mile from Paramide metro station and a little further from Roma Ostiense train station. The road to the hotel from the stations is, for some 500 metres, a very serious hill.
A taxi from central Rome is €9 to €10.
All the above notwithstanding the Hotel San Anselmo offers outstanding value for money,
