The Hotel San Anselmo, is situated in a quiet residential area and only a 10 minute stroll to the Circo Massimo (Circus Maximus), where you can start a whole day's walking, viewing and marveling at a wonderful city. The hotel is an impressive building that captures a lot of what you will see in Rome. It has a small reception, with a small bar area, but with plenty of seating both indoors and outdoors you can have a glass or two outside in the warm weather on one of the sofas.
Our room was on the first floor overlooking the square to the front of the hotel, and although compact, it was big enough for two of us, and had a very nice marbled bathroom with power shower. The decoration, fixtures and fittings set the room off and incorporate the rest of the hotel's design. The bed was a queen size which was very comfortable, and the long elegant black out curtains meant you weren't woken by the early morning light. Breakfast is served in the small restaurant on the ground floor next to the bar and comprises of continental style food, with the fruit, cheese and hams very good indeed.
Free Wi-Fi is offered and the staff were very helpful indeed in offering advice on what to see and how to get around. Each evening we had hot chocolate, which is free and a coffee in the bar area which helped round of a great day. Having a nice hotel during your stay adds to the pleasure and this one certainly did that.
Overall a fantastic hotel that is ideally situated to see what is a great city bustling with history, architecture and life. Locally there weren't many restaurants, but we did eat at L'Insalata Ricca, which is a cheaper small chain establishment, but the salad, pasta and pizza we had were very good, and at 52 euros with wine, beer and soft drinks that isn't too bad.
