Historical Traveller Reviews of Sant Anselmo Hotel

Incredibly pleased with Hotel San Anselmo

from nreitter
I stayed at Hotel San Anselmo for 2 nights & was extremely happy with the accommodations. My room was somewhat elegant & comfortable with lovely views of the 'park' at the roundabout plus the price was so reasonable ( $109 EU). Super peaceful & yet within 15 minutes of many sites. I took a bus to Vatican City & the bus line was just down from the hotel & took all of 10 minutes. Very convenient. After my whirlwind touring it was great to come back, have a glass of wine & sit in the beautiful outdoor, backyard "garden" & write postcards & read. Also, the breakfasts were nice with a large variety of fruit, breads, pastries, juices, cheeses, etc.
A few slight drawbacks: 1- there is a decent hill that you end up walking up & down many times to get to dinner, sightseeing, etc. This was fine for me but for elderly it would be difficult. 2- the hotel suggested a few restaurants & both that I tried were very mediocre. 3- I asked them for VERY specific direcitons on how to walk to the hotel from the Ostiense train station & they did not give them to me so I wandered around trying to figure it out & eventually had to take a taxi. Also, staff is a bit cold/aloof.

Excellent hotel - and Very quiet

from Tomot
This is the 4th time that my partner and I have stayed at the group of hotels know as Aventine Hotels which is comprised of three small hotels on the Aventine Hill (the group has a 4th hotel somewhere else in Rome) --- In the past we stayed at hotel San Pio, but the rooms in that hotel were all booked (and so was the hotel we stayed at earlier in our same Italy trip) but they had room in the San Anselmo hotel. We booked a room, and though the rate was higher than we had budgeted, in the end we were glad we stayed there.----- If i am not mistaken, the San Anselmo hotel used to be their lower-end hotel in the past and San Pio was a step up from San Anselmo - but now the San Anselmo hotel has been completely remodelled and renovated and is a 4 star hotel (Pio is a 3) - it is a little confusing because the hotels are all on the same street.

I don't really know what I can add to the previous reviews. As others
have said, this is an extremely quiet and very pleasant residential area of Rome - nice to walk around in at any time of the day or evening, yet it is a fairly convenient location --- Testaccio is a very short walk down the hill (if you are familiar w/ Volpetti, it is
only 3 blocks away) and many of the other sites are walking distance if you are wiling/able/interested in walking.

We were in room 823 (it is not on the 8th floor - the 2nd or 3 - not sure how they get the room #s as i think there are only 4 floors in the building)- what a great room! I was initially surprised and humored by the overdone decoration (larger than life canopy bed - Rococo flourishes throughout the room) and I almost wanted to hate it - but I couldn't help but be drawn in by drama of the room. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the sheets were excellent. Most impressive, however, was the bathroom. It was large and bright with a
HUGE tub big enough to easily fit two persons. The breakfast was very
good - better than what I remember from San Pio and the common areas were beautifully designed and decorated.

If you are looking for a nice quiet place in Rome, I would definitely
recommend checking out San An

Sea of Tranquility

from sadblue
We visited Rome for the first time in Mid February and chose the San Anselomo on the basis of the good reviews on Trip Advisor. We hoped for and expected a good hotel and were most definitely not disappointed.

We were a party of six, including grandparents and two teenage children and all of us enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The rooms were extremely pleasant, very clean, well appointed and not a sound was heard from adjacent rooms; towels were changed morning and evening; to the delight of the children chocolate was left on the bed each night; the staff were both friendly and very helpful; the bar and lounge although small were welcoming and comfortable; the breakfast room was light and airy, whilst the food was plentiful, varied and delicious (and included in the room rate!); the piazza in which the hotel is located is quiet and a minutes walk from the 'keyhole' view of St Peter's basilica and a park with magnificant views over the city.

After a day in amongst the hustle and bustle of Rome, the hotel, set in the quiet suburb of Aventine was an oasis of calm. There is a restaurant attached to a sister hotel at the rear of the hotel, however, the are a number of restaurants at the foot of Aventine hill in the Testaccio district. We can highly recommend Bean restaurant, a small local eating house, with friendly, helpful staff and cheap excellent quality food.

If you're going to Rome San Anselmo is the perfect place to stay, we couldn't recommend it more highly..

A real Treat

from charboz
Oh Wow, what a treat. we were booked for the Villa san Pio but upon arrival were upgraded to SanAnselmo and it was fab! We had room 826 which had the most romantic and comfy 4 poster bed with drapes. The bathroom was as big as the bedroom with a seperate toilet area, a huge multi jet walk in shower and a slipper bath. The ceiling was set with 'twinkle lights' in the bathroom and after a day in Rome to relax in the bath looking up to the beautiful ceiling was just heaven.

The breakfast was very good, much better than I expected. All the staff were great especially the concierge they gave great advice and are worth there weight in gold. Stay here if you get the chance, whilst it is not in the centre it is so close to every thing and the public transport links are great!

The hotel does not have a restaurant but there are loads to choose from just a short walk away, and the restaurant in Hotel San pio is really good.

Most nights we sat out in the quiet gardens, had a cold beer and reflected on our day. I can tell you how good this hotel was. I will definately be back there soon

My first review because this hotel deserves it!

from Canacs
First time I am posting a review. Simply said : This hotel deserves it so much! We decided to go for a week-end in Rome and picked this hotel. We will return to Rome and defenitively will be staying at the same hotel : Clean, stunning decor, fabulous breakfast, excellent service. Cheers from Lux from Canadian expats!

Great little place

from Jim24
Spent two nights at the hotel in late January, staying in the 'room with a view' No 829.

If you want a romantic, slightly over the top place to stay, away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, this is the place to go.

The room was lovely, but having the balcony view was the icing on the cake. The hotel is also set in a very nice residential area with good views of all of Rome. Getting to central Rome is very easy - 15 minute walk to the Colloseum and the Roman forum.

Aside from a slight problem with our heating in our room (although it really wasn't a big deal) and mixed service (again I'm being a little harsh), the hotel was excellent. Very good breakfast too.

All in all, excellent especially given the off season price.

Great hotel in a great location

from NToronto
This a great hotel in a great location. It is a short walk to Coliseum, yet it sits in a very green residential neiighborhood where rooms have garden views, and no scooter will distrub your sleep.

Service is impeccable, rooms are lovely, bathrooms are great. Breakfast is very good. Everything is spotless.


from argento1
We were supposed to stay the The Villa San Pio but were told we were upgraded to this hotel. Absolutely amazing and what a perfect location! Charming neighborhood! This was the last day of our two week trip and we were flying out of Rome so we were staying just one day. What a way to end our trip! The room was beautiful, amazing view, adorable courtyard, comfortable beds and great bathroom! I can't say enough about this hotel! It made our last night in Rome that much better. I will definitely be staying here again!

I like it

from sabeeh
room is excellent and clean, bathroom is small but it is ok
people are freindly
I like it , when i will be in rome again i would like to stay at San Anselmo hotel

Quiet, clean, luxurious, and romantic.

from Eric+Anne
We just spent 5 nights at Hotel San Anselmo, and loved it! We paid 140 Euros a night, breakfast included! What a deal! We actually booked a room at the San Pio, but were offered to stay at the San Anselmo instead.
The rooms are superb, the bathrooms incredible (marble all over, jaccuzzi, jet shower, 2 sinks).
Breakfast was huge, fresh and delicious. We took it among orange trees on a lovely patio.
The neighborhood sits on a hill. It is very quiet and pretty, with old churches and huge villas. It takes about 10 minutes by foot to get to the busy part of the city. It's about 15 minutes by foot from La Piazza Bocca della Verità where you can take the double decker bus 110 which has about ten stops throughout the city and an audio system in 6 languages that explains the main monuments. (You might want to consider the 2-day ticket.)
We also walked 15 minutes to the pyramid metro station to take a train to the beach and Ancient Ostia.
We had candlelight dinners twice at the San Pio Hotel down the short street (they are related). We paid about 75 Euros for 2, wine included.
Unrelated to the hotel but worth mentioning:
- "Dar Poeta" on Vicolo del Bologna, 45, is the buzziest but best pizza place... 20 Euros for 2, wine included! Do not go there for quiet and romance, though.
- To fly from one city to another throuhout Europe, try Ryan Air. We flew from Germany to Rome for about 70 Euros roundtrip, taxes included, in the high season.

Top Local Tips for Rome

Taxis On arriving at Campino airport we were aware through research that the taxi to the hotel should cost about 30 euros, we were fleeced for 60 euros and the return trip was only 30 euros. We did ask the cab driver before entering the cab how much it would cost but he mumbled and placed suitcases in boot. This was a lesson learnt and we had not had this happen before-be aware.It was a reputable taxi company!

Metro and ATAC buses After some scary advice from fellow travellers we were a little nervous of using the metro. DONT BE SCARED it was so simple and the 4 euro ticket allowed you to use the metro and the ATAC buses for the whole day so all of Rome was available

Romeinlimo tours We used Romeinlimo for a tour of Rome and transfer to Florence. They did a great job for us! Our guide was Carlo. He spoke fluent English and was incredibly knowledgeable. Their website is
