Reviewed 11 June 2012

Wonderful stay in room 825 during our honeymoon last week! The service staff is perfect and attentive, the daily buffet breakfast is wonderful, the location is second to none. The neighborhood is quiet and off the beaten path, allowing you to truly relax in this bustling city. One drawback- the day time (early morning to mid afternoon) concierge needs to adjust his smug attitude. Always had a smart-alecky response for questions on a daily basis. Least professional staff member of the entire hotel.

Room Tip: Room 825 was wonderful- however all rooms have a different and unique theme.

I spent a very pleasant few nights in the San Anselmo. The room had a lot of character and the staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good and served in the peaceful hotel garden.

Location-wise - it's 20 to 30 minutes walk to the Colosseum or the Pantheon but there is a metro station nearby if you don't fancy the walk. On the flip side being a little out of the way it is very peaceful at night and walking round the various sights will help you burn off the calories of the tasty Italian food.

The only issue I had was that it was rather noisy in the morning - I was woken up by loud voices and banging doors at 7:00 most mornings. I'm not sure if it was the cleaners or other guests as I generally put my head under the pillow and went back to sleep!

This hotel is probably in the best location (for a hotel) in Rome. It is in the very tranquil area of Aventino, with Rose and Orange gardens just around the corner. The Colosseum and Forum are only 15 and 20 minutes walk away but the hotel sits in a secluded area away from all of the traffic and noise.

The staff were very efficient, very friendly and very helpful and our 4 night stay in this small, but wonderful hotel only added to the our first visit and fantastic experience of Rome.

This is a wonderful hotel with excellent service. The charming ambiance extends from the hotel rooms to the indoor/outdoor breakfast area. My husband and I spent 5 nights there in May. We did as much as we possibly could all over Rome throughout our stay and found the location perfect. It was so relaxing to come back to our home away from home nestled in its quiet corner of Rome. It felt like we were able to escape the crowds and unwind. Even though they are in a quieter part of town, it is still very convenient to stay there. They are a 2 minute walk from a bus stop that only costs 1.50 to take you to the Vatican or other high tourist places. I would highly recommend staying there. In fact, I will most likely stay there again.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony-- it's wonderful!

This is a lovely small hotel in what has to be the quietest neighborhood in Rome but within walking distance of public transportation. The hotel is one of three together on the Aventine Hill, all converted villas. We were upgraded at no extra cost from one of the hotels around the corner. Hotel well managed, helpful staff, nice room. No computer facilities but has wi-fi. Nice buffet breakfast included with room. Great place if you do not want to be in the middle of everything.
