Photo of San Anselmo

“Peaceful, romantic refuge in the smart hilltop Aventine district. Baroque flamboyance meets contemporary details to create a hotel with huge personality. Overlooking the Sant’Anselmo Church and within range of all main attractions, while staying off the beaten track.”

Hotel Review

Within walking distance of some of Rome’s main sights, the quietly aristocratic, residential area of the Aventine with its handsome 19th-century villas and lush gardens has an almost villagey feel. The smartly-revamped Sant’ Anselmo has a gorgeous garden and is an oasis of calm. Most of the 34 romantic, luxurious bedrooms are themed (‘Gold’, ‘Romeo and Juliet’, ‘Poetry’). All have rich drapery, splendid bathrooms and touches of baroque glamour.

San Anselmo

A welcome haven from the bustle of central Rome, this fin de siècle villa in the city’s genteel Aventine Hill neighbourhood has an elegantly restrained air from the outside that belies the “Thousand and One Nights” opulence within. Ideal for a romantic getaway.
