Nice Spot in Peaceful Area
My husband and I chose this location in Rome for part of our Honeymoon vacation to Europe. We chose it based on good reviews, and the photos. This was the ambiance we hoped for in this old city. I let the hotel know in advance that this was a Honeymoon trip, and I paid the extra amount for a Superior Double - hoping for something magnificent. My first impressions were frustrating at best, but by the end I was nicely pleased. I had written and asked for directions from the train station - and received directions from the train station to the Metro, but not from the Metro to the hotel. The Metro seemed to be in the middle of no where - so we struggled with our luggage until someone would help us with directions! It was all uphill! I promise - this is not an exaggeration! When we reached the hotel - perch near the to of Aventine Hill - we were drenched and exhausted! Luckily for us the porter quickly brought us some blood orange juice while we caught our breath. The clerk looked at us and said Why you didn't take a taxi? We had even seen a taxi until we were almost to the hotel door. So that was frustrating. We presented small gifts we brought with us celebrating our Honeymoon. Our room was nicely decorated, very Roman looking, and room for all of our belongings. I was slightly sad that this did not look any more special than a standard double room - and did not match the description that other guests had mentioned ... sweeping views of the city, or a private balcony. But it was nice. The air conditoning was great and never failed during their record breaking heat wave. The WIFI was free and worked perfectly. About 20 minutes after our check in, the porter arrived with a small tray including two little bottles of champaigne and a bowl of chips - complements of the hotel. Very nice! Good points? Hotel Clerk Vincenzo was perfecto in helping us figure out how to get to the places we wanted to see and was funny! The porters were all very nice and professional. The breakfast each morning was great! The area is peaceful and beautiful, and very close to the Colleseo and the ancient ruins. The less perfect points? If you are old, or have children in strollers, climbing the hill to the hotel after a long day of sightseeing is a challenge. The bathroom in our room (which included a bidet), had a shower/bath that could be envied by some - but would have been impossible for my mother or little children to get in or out of. This, of course, could have been accomodated by a request to change a room, I suppose. The Metro Circo Massimo is a bit of a walk, (down the hill) - or Metro Piramide (also down the hill) are not especially close, but if you don't mind walking are doable. The is train access at Piramide. This does not relate to the hotel, but August is the month many locals go on holiday, so many shops and eateries were closed.

I've only been to Rome once, but staying at the Hotel Sant'Anselmo made things a lot easier for me. A easy taxi ride from the train station, they immediately made us feel at home. It was our honeymoon and they upgraded us to a beautiful suite. It was an absolutely stunning room, especially when considering the size of most European hotel rooms. They have a great outdoor area, and it is a short 15-20 minute walk to the Colosseum. Very helpful staff. Rome can be an intimidating place for a first timer, but staying here made it a lot easier on us. Can't say enough good things about this place.
