“Peaceful Retreat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2011

We found this a delightful hotel to come back to after a day sightseeing and invariable took a walk into the Testaccio area for dinner each evening rather than returning to the center by taxi. The Metro stops at 9pm.

Our standard room was well furnished but small and as one of the windows wouldn’t close properly the air conditioning didn’t work. We met many different reception staff during our three day stay but there was only one on duty at a time and their level of service varied enormously. Some had a poor command of English and struggled to understand or answer the simplest of questions. Most guests were Italian and on business.

This hotel is terrific! I arrived earlier than expected and they checked me in early without hesitation. The room was nice, and staying on the first floor I had a door with a private outside alcove, but no view of anything but the driveway. The bathroom is modern, although slightly awkward to enter/exit the shower (and the floor is a bit slippery when wet). Great location, quick 10-15 minute walk to the coliseum. Desk staff were friendly (evening more so than AM) and they gave good directions and recommendations for restaurants. Breakfast was great, and the tables outside were adorable and charming. Loved this hotel, and would stay again.

This is officially a *** hotel, but is better than many ****. Situated on the tranquil Aventine hill you are guaranteed a quiet night. Traffic here is virtually zero, and sleeping with the window open is no problem. Breakfast is not over-done, but moderate, good coffee, freshly baked white bread rolls, fruit, yoghurt, etc. From here you are perfectly located to access all the attractions of The Eternal City; Trastevere, Circus Maximus, Forum and Colosseum are within walking distance. The nearby metro station quicly takes you further. Staff is attentive and friendly.
Please note that BBC and CNN are on position 900 and above on the TV remote.

We spent our wedding anniversary week in this lovely peaceful hotel. All the staff were friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them. The room was nicely furnished, with a good bathroom. We love visiting cities but always try to stay some way out from the hustle of the tourists and choosing Easter week to visit Rome meant that this hotel was in the perfect location. Yes, it's on a hill, but there are 7 hills in Rome, and the Aventine was a really good choice to stay it did mean a climb, but the surroundings made it very doable indeed. If you are looking for somewhere to eat suggest you take the shortcut through the park and go over to the Trastevere area where the restaurants are cheaper with friendlier service.

We were very pleased with Aventino. The location is perfect: quiet, green, short walk to metro Circus Massimo, bus/tram stop (bus 3 from vialle Aventino takes you directly to the Coloseum 3 stops). Going in the other direction, look for Clivo di Rocca Savella, a cool quiet pedestrian alley that will lead you down from Santa Sabina to the river to cross the bridge into the Trastevere neighborhood (good place to get dinner, coffee, drinks). Free wired internet in room, very clean, tile floors, room 348 had a wrap around balcony with two double doors, you could suntan all day if you liked, the room wasn't overly large and the beds were a bit hard, but the room was fantastic with splendid views of old mansions and trees all around. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was only mediocre and could have been reinforced with an espresso bar. Better to plan to have a nice brunch in town. I didn't go inside any of the other San Selmo hotels in the area, (there are 3 in the neighborhood) but they seem to be even finer so any one of them would do. I have been to Rome several times and I can say that now I would not stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: 348 had a wrap a corner balcony, great views

This hotel is charming. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our bedroom was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Although our room had air conditioning, we preferred to sleep with the window open, which was possible as the location is so quiet. Being so close to the best view of Rome is also a bonus.

This is a well maintained villa with well decorated, comfortable and clean rooms. It was very inexpensive for a room of this quality in Rome, but that's probably because it lies in a nice, quiet residential neighborhood just outside the tourist area, and you'll have to walk about 8 minutes to the nearest metro stop or else take a taxi.
