After much research trying to find a decent, reasonable place in Rome we chose to stay in Hotel San Anselmo and we were not disappointed. It is located in a beautiful, up market area of Rome on the Aventine Hill full of tree-lined streets and stately homes. The rooms are romantic, clean and quiet. The service was good. The breakfast an excellent selection of cheeses, breads, coffee, tea, yogurt, eggs and bacon. There are areas to read and relax from a busy day of exploring. Highly recommended for those looking for excellent value for money.

Terrific stay. Everyone from the bell staff to the front desk, to the waiters at breakfast to the maids were all friendly, welcoming and very helpful. The front desk staff were great, especially the lady who checked us in, very helpful with restaurant recommendations and reservations, taxi, etc. good breakfast and a nice change of pace in a quite neighborhood. We'll definitely return.

We stayed at this hotel during our honeymoon and was our second destination. I had seen on here it was tricky to find so had emailed in advance for directions. Lucky for us it was light when we arrived so we found it with only a little help needed from a local lady! Upon arriving we were greeted by a very polite gentlemen at the front desk, whose first concern was to get us some cold drinks as it had been a hot walk to the hotel! After we had cooled down he then proceeded to book us in. Our bags were taken to the room by a friendly member of staff, and we found a bottle of fizz and strawberries waiting for us on the bed. It was a beautiful room with a lovely view, and was extremely clean. The bathroom wasn't huge, but was amazing with a powerful shower. Breakfast was fantastic, with a huge choice ranging from cold meats, cheeses, bacon, eggs, pastries, fresh fruit, smoked salmon etc. Bar and room service both available with a stunning garden for warm evenings. No restaurant on site however they were able to recommend a number of good local restaurants in a leaflet with star ratings as well as price ratings which was gratefully received. Located in a quieter area of Rome, but about a 20 minute walk from the Colesseum and other tourist sites. Cannot sing their praises enough, we had a fantastic time and my parents are hoping to go there for their anniversary this year after our recommendation!

Lots of positives for this place - Decor of room. courteous and helpful staff. Nice garden with oranges hanging from the trees when we visited couple of weeks back. Good breakfast spread. Central to many archaelogical sites. Quiet neighborhood.
Surprised us with fresh strawberries and prosecco sent to the room upon arrival.
Was bit of uphill walk. In a way, was good as we got our daily dose of exercise :-)
Some eating options nearby but is a good walk to better eat-outs.
a good 15 min walk to nearest metro. No inhouse lunch dinner option.
Rooms could be made bit bigger to accommodate more space for suitcases. We felt a bit crammed with not enough space for 2 large boxes that we had.
But overall very enjoyable 4 days.

This boutique hotel was adorable. The decor was charming and interesting. The breakfast was lovely. The staff was very kind and helpful. The location is right in the center of things so it's easy to walk places and wander around. You could hear church bells and watch the sisters in the convent across the street from the balcony in my room. Wonderful stay!

There are alot of options to consider when looking for a hotel room in Rome. We looked long and hard and finally decided on the San Anselmo. We are so happy that we decided to stay here as the hotel is amazing! The San Anslemo has a great location and is within walking distance of alot of things. The staff is helpful and friendly and the service was great. We enjoyed the breakfast every morning and the wonderful garden view. We requested a bed for our 2 year old son and one was brought up with no problems. If you are looking for the best place to stay, you found it. One thing that we didnt realize until we were about to leave was that the The Aventine Keyhole is less than a block from the hotel. Its very neat and we are glad we got to see it. When you walk out of the front doors to the hotel, continue straight as far as you can go until you get to the wall, turn right and walk down that road and you will come to a church with a green door. Look through the keyhole.

Room Tip: We choose the room with the tub and were very happy we did! I have never seen that good of water pr...

I have found this hotel via Tripadvisor and the fine comments there. We love walking and this place seems to be just right. Placed on the hill, surrounded by private villas and churches, gardens and convents. It is 15 min walk tot the FORUM ROMANUM/COLOSEUM on one side, 10 min walk to the TESTACCIO quater, full of great italian restaurants on the other side. The journey to and from the airport can not be simplier. 8 eur for a train ticket from Fumicino to Ostiense, 30 min ride and then 10 min walk to the hotel.
Breakfast was just fine, sitting under the blooming orange trees. Our double room was not the biggest one, but You get what You need and You are out in the city anyway. If You do not like walking, it is about 7 min to the nearest Metro station Piramides.

Room Tip: Room 820 has a small balcony with table and chair.

Dear Jan
thank you for your comment!
Our hotel S. Anselmo, located in the residential area of the Aventino hill, is a quiet place to spent some days of calm after a long walk around the city!

We wait for your next stay to enjoy another room maybe much larger then the room you had for the first stay.
