My husband and I traveled with another couple to Rome in Sept. and stayed at Hotel San Anselmo for 2 days before a cruise and 1 night afterwards. We booked deluxe rooms both times and couldn't have been happier. The hotel itself is beautifully decorated and each room is different. We were lucky enough to get rooms with balconies both times. Our first room was 825 and had a small balcony overlooking the street at the front of the hotel. Our second room was 830, which had a very large balcony overlooking a quiet, residential street. The bathroom in this room was very small, but that was a minor concern to us. We had requested rooms with showers and I think the bathrooms with tubs/showers were a bit bigger. If that's a concern for you, just request a larger bathroom. The other couple had larger bathrooms with double sinks, but they didn't have a balcony.
We loved the location of this hotel because it was in a quiet area on Aventine Hill, which was nice after spending our days in the more congested areas. We ate dinner each night in Testaccio, which is a short walk and had numerous restaurants to choose from. It's not like other areas of Rome where restaurants are abundant, but they were very helpful at the front desk in giving us recommendations and making reservations for us.
We were able to walk most places from the hotel and covered a lot of ground our first day - from Aventine Hill to the Spanish Steps and back. For those not as fond of walking, the taxis were reasonably priced. We didn't take the metro or buses so I can't comment on that.
The hotel had a good breakfast each morning with an assortment of breads, meats, cheeses, cereals, eggs, and what I thought was really good coffee. They also offered a bar at night with wine and other beverages and had plenty of seating outside in their courtyard.
The staff at Hotel San Anselmo were wonderful - friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel if you're looking for a quiet place, a little off the beaten path, in beautiful surroundings. I wish we could've stayed longer!
