Aventine Hotels in Rome
Slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of the historic center are a group of four hotels, The Aventino San Anselmo Hotels on the Aventine Hill. All four hotels, Hotel San Anselmo, Hotel Villa San Pio, Hotel Aventino (pictured), and Hotel Villa San Lorenzo Maria (located close to Termini, Rome's train station) were once private residences and have all been redecorated and refurbished in a modern baroque style within the last ten years. Rates start at 120 Euros for a double room (low season) and each room has a private bath. The hotels all have beautiful gardens and public areas and are located within walking distance of the Colosseum, Baths of Caracalla, and the Circus Maximus. These properties are a bit off the beaten path, but in quiet surroundings that will make you forget that you are in the middle of the one of Europe's most hectic cities.
