“This hotel was a delightful respite from the hordes of tourists, traffic, and grime of the city.”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

The rooms were elegant and the morning breakfast was perfect. We had wonderful service delivered by a delightful staff including room, breakfast service, and front desk personnel. We would highly recommend this hotel. The location was perfect and the front desk personnel helped us with every request from taxi service to pharmacy needs. There were a number of restaurants just down the hill that were amazingly good. After touring the crowded sights of Rome, this hotel provided a delightful respite to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Loved everything about the hotel!!!

The hotel is beautiful. The rooms are clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The breakfast was very good with an array of cheese, fruit, meat and bread. The location is perfect - it's quiet and romantic - off the beaten path, but not far from the main sites. Public transportation is nearby and easy to use. The hotel is a short walk to the Colosseum and other major attractions.

I can't say anything bad about this hotel. It's clean, beautiful, affordable and, overall, an incredible value for the money. I'm already booking my next trip to Rome and will only stay at this hotel. It's fantastic!

Room Tip: Select a room with a terrace for the best views of Rome!

The hotel is gorgeous. Each room has a different decor & all are beautiful. Every morning we had breakfast in the garden, the food was simply delightful.
It's location was a little remote from the center but with the ease of public transportation, you can get there in minutes. Around the hotel there are lovely gardens which are open to the public & from there you have an amazing view of Rome.

Wonderfully elegant hotel. We couldnt find one thing that wasn't perfect about it. The staff were really friendly. The service at the hotel was without fault Breakfast was also very good fresh fruit and bread each day.
Defintely somewhere we will book again when in Rome. Testaccio was great for food ( just down the hill from the hotel) prices and food marvellous. The hotel was in a really quiet area though quite a walk to the top of the hill.

We stayed here for three nights before leaving on a cruise. We loved the beautiful residential area location. It is on top of a Roman hill, so, if you aren't a walker, you will need to call a cab. We had no trouble walking down (and back up) the hill to local restaurants and to use the subway. There are few restaurants that are on top of the hill. The hotel staff is very accommodating. As many reviewers have noted, the rooms are very different sizes, so make sure you book what you want. We asked for a quiet room and got one overlooking the leafy back area. Ours was one of the smaller rooms, but it was not a problem. We enjoyed the breakfast that was included and also went to the afternoon tea a few times. Our bed was very firm, which we prefer. The bathroom was updated and very nice. Good AC and wifi in the room. Also an in-room safe, which is nice in any big city. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your review about our Hotel San Anselmo.
The vital reason that make us gratified is the pleasure of our guests during the period spent in our Hotel San Anselmo.
It enjoys a highly respected position, on the top of Aventino hill, one of the most elegant place, surrounded by the green and so beautiful especially during the good season.
The historical center of Rome is very wide, there are so many building, fountains and churches to admire .In every corner you can discover something special where you can be carried away in that evocative atmosphere..!
We’re so happy you appreciated the well decorated room, the very comfortable bed, included the delicious rich breakfast.
Hoping to have you again in our Hotel San Anselmo for another trip in Rome, full of satisfaction.

Recently returned from a short but fabulous break in Rome. Spent three enjoyable nights at this superb hotel. Fantastic staff, lovely air conditioned rooms and free wifi. It is situated in a quiet area close to beautiful churches and the fragrant Rose garden, not far from the Circo Massimo, Palatino and Colosseum.

Will definitely return for a longer visit and shall make a point of staying at this hotel.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Beautifully decorated they are all good.
