“Just perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

We had an absolutely lovely two night stay here in August 2013. Fabulous location in an exclusive part of town only 20 minutes walk from the Colliseum and Forum. Absolutely beautiful decor, opulent with a contemporary twist. Our triple room had a huge balcony overlooking the gardens - 812. Breakfast was lovely, either inside the grand dining room or outside in the private gardens. Will definitely be staying her on future trips to Rome and would recommend it to anybody visiting.

Room Tip: Room 812 has a fabulous balcony.

It's so nice to know you found our Hotel Sant'Anselmo "Just perfect" for your roman vacation and that you were pleased with decor, service and location. Having a room with a view over the magnificient of the Aventino hill is real "plus" and it's definately a unique experience when looking for something special with a romantic athmosphere of past time!!... We can't wait to ..take care of you in your next visit to the eternal city!!

We recently stayed with our two teenaged children at the Hotel San Anselmo, with two rooms. Both rooms were lovely, with high ceilings and gorgeous bathrooms. The front desk staff graciously accommodated our request for a room change, when our original room assigned on the third floor was extremely hot. This was due to a heat wave in the city, and unfortunately the AC just wasn't able to keep up. It was a beautiful, character-filled room, though, with a lovely terrace. I do have to say that the cleanliness of that particular bathroom wasn't as pristine as the other two rooms we stayed in, as there was noticeable mould in the shower. As others have mentioned, the hotel is situated in a very beautiful and quiet area, which makes for excellent sleeps, but lots of walking! My only suggestion to the management would be that a somewhat expanded bar menu would be much appreciated: because there really are no restaurants close by, after an exhausting day of sightseeing and walking it would be nice to be able to return to the hotel and simply stay in and eat there. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

Dear Margaret,
thank you for your positive comment.
We are glad to know you really appreciate our hotel S. ANSELMO, particulary the location, the service and also the rooms.
Thank you for the idea to increase the bar menu, we always appreciate suggestions because it's important for us in order to make the best for our clients and give them the chance to relax with something to eat, in our garden after a long day around the hot city.
In our area, there's just one restaurant closeby but it's right, if you are tired the best idea is to stay in the hotel and eat something fresh.
Hope to see you soon

When you see the hotel from outside and even when you are in the lobby, you imagine the rooms beautifully decorated. That didn't happen. The room we had was in burgundy and we hated it. We felt as if we were staying at Count Duckula's House. Service was great, though.

Dear Guest,
I'm sorry to know you didn't like the decor of our room during your stay with us.
The rooms are all different in style and atmosphere and I'm sure you could have chosen a different one to suite better you taste and idea of roman experience.
Best regards

The hotel is lovely. The location is indeed 20min walking distance from main attractions but after a day of walking through the busy touristic areas, it is a good to reach the top of the quiet hill where the hotel is located. The room was really nice and the bathroom too. Highly recommended for couples. Only negative is the quality of the breakfast.

Dear Alix
thank you very much for your positive comment!
It’s nice to know you had a great stay and you loved to come back in the hotel S. ANSELMO after a long day in the hot Rome and I’m sure, a cocktail or a drink in our beautiful garden is the best solution to avoid the hot temperature and have some relax.
We are sorry to know you didn’t appreciate the quality of breakfast but it’s also important for us to know different opinions in order to change and improve something.
Hope to see you soon for another wonderful stay with us in the eternal city.

Me and my boyfriend stayed in San Anselmo hotel for 6 nights in early June 2013, and we absolutely loved it.

The room we had was gorgeous, with original design and decorations that created Roman atmosphere. It was so beautiful that I couldn't believe it when I saw it first:)

The bathroom was always immaculate clean, and they brought fresh towels twice a day!

Excellent breakfast included into the room rate, and also afternoon tea was served in the dining room every day.

Strong wi-fi signal in the room.

Nice, friendly and helpful stuff. I especially liked the map of the area which they gave us with the description of all the nearby restaurants.

The best location in Rome: it is quiet, green, with a few nice places to visit in the area (like an orange grove with a splendid lookout point, a rose garden, the key hole where you can see 3 countries, and a few others). We never used any transport in 7 days, except for going to and from the airport, and walked everywhere. The Forum and other Ancient Rome ruins are in 15 minutes walk away.

Overall, it was my best hotel experience ever, I highly recommend it!

Room Tip: The cheapest rate was on the hotel official web site, and they also offered good discounts if you st...

Hotel San Anselmo is located on the Aventine and surrounded by ancient Palazzi, gardens and trees. There isn't any traffic noise and the nights are very calm. The staff is friendly, the room was nicely furnished and big enough. Everything was clean and the breakfeast copious. Several good restaurants are in walking distance, ask the concierge for advice. It's a perfect place to recover from the crowded and noisy center and its attractions. We'll certainly be guests there again.
