Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Anglo Americano Rome
DONT Stay Here!!!
Arriving at this hotel for our honeymoon we were rudely told by 2 staff that they had accidently only booked a single room for us to stay in and if we wanted to stay there we would have to pay extra money. After them yelling at us we thought we had no other choice but to pay the extra money so we slept there for 1 night but 1 was enough. The walls where paper thin hearing EVERYTHING in the 4 rooms surrounding you, the rooms were dull, hot and very small with flooding bathroom. Next morning we went looking for another hotel. We stayed at HOTEL CECIL two streets away where we would recommend anyone to stay. the rooms were big with a nice view and soundproofed and staff go out of there way to ensure a pleasant stay. Please dont stay at Anglo Americano you will regret it!
Never stay here!
I read all the bad reviews before booking this hotel. I figured, how bad can it be for just 1 night stay? All I cared was the location, which was very good. Do yourself a favor and do not go to this hotel. It's in terrible shape, really ugly, dirty and depressing dark old stinky rooms. (Way overpriced!) The real problem was with the receptionist/front desk person (a middle aged men with big mustache). I was meeting up a friend in Rome, that was also visitng that city and when came to the hotel to see me, the front desk guy threatened us that he will call Police (I had no idea why). He was extremely rude and was screaming asking if this person has a passport. I continued to be nice and said off course he does, he is not a criminal for wanting to visit me. Stll yelling, he advised me that I am not allowed to have any quests, since I booked only for one person and if I want to talk to him, I would have to take it outside. He made me pay additional $50 euro to have him come up to my room. It was a horrible experience. The phone wasn't working either. For the amount of money it costs, there are a lot of different hotels available.
Good location, helpful staff, mediocre hotel at best
We (my mother, niece & I) joked that this hotel got its fourth star because of the cappuccino machine in the breakfast room (my 14 year old niece said a Motel 6 was better than this). My mother & sister stayed here before so we knew what it would be like -- they had liked the location & helpful staff & we three again concurred with these two things. The lobby area is nice & was cool (June, 2003 during heat wave) but the elevator & halls on other floors were not air conditioned & were pretty stiffling. The room was just barely cool, but tolerable.
The room's carpet was treadbare & there was not a single picture on the walls in the room - depressing. The television was small & reception was not very good but we did get CNN & BBC. Would look for another hotel in area for same price, if possible. Definitely does not deserve four stars.
Ditto on the 'KEEP LOOKING FOR ANOTHER HOTEL'!
Don't stay here!
Small bathroom! Small bed with flat pillows and no extra pillows.
The only redeeming attribute is its location. The hotel is just a few steps away from the bottom of the Via Veneto, and a 10 minute walk away from the Spanish Steps.
An UNBEARABLE place
I stayed 2 nights in Anglo-Americano from Sept. 12 to 14th, 2003. Paid EUR175 per night and felt like being robbed. Just like many people posted in their review, I too experienced the small room, dirty carpet, old furniture, after shower floor floods, noise, and to add more, very bad service. My bad experience started from checking-in. Waited at least 30 minutes to get to our room. And believe it or not, it was the front desk person (an elder guy) who was complaining to us about people getting in and out all at the same time in a bad tone. When they talked to you, it sounds like questioning. In the room, one can hear cars running on the streets, people talking and even some embarrassing sound during midnight from the next room. The food for breakfast is no good but it was their bad service that made me angry. When asking for a cup of coffee, the restaurant staff told me there was a coffee machine serving American coffee at the other end of the room while they do serve freshly brewed coffee without any charge. See! NEVER EVER STAY HERE!!
Just returned from a 4 days stay at the hotel, booked under a package deal. This is my first time in Italy, so I can't compare to other local hotels. The room was medium size (about 4X3.5 m) and well lit. The A/C cooled the room to a manageable level, but could not dehumidify it (late August was humid). The bed was good, but the two chairs by the work area were in a very bad shape - could not sit on them. The sore point was the bathroom. The only reason I give the hotel "OK" rating and not less is because the rooms in the hotel vary greatly, and a couple that we knew and came with us had a 50% bigger bathroom with a full bath - at the same price. Ours was a pity - I would guess 2.5X1.5 m in size, with a bide, toilet, sink and a shower and hardly a room to move. The shower was 60X60 cm in the corner, with a curtain on 2 sides.
I am a small build, and touched all 4 sides. If you are a large frame person, forget it - you will not fit in. The bathroom floor was wet after taking a shower. After a couple of days there we asked to change rooms: the desk manager agreed but wanted the staff to move the luggage after they finish cleaning the rooms. This would cause us to waste a morning since we wanted to move the safe content ourselves, so we declined (only later we discovered that the hotel has, in addition to the in-room safe, also a more secure safe case on the 1st floor for guests use w/o charge). The moral of the story: Ask for a bath tub in the bathroom when you check in. The staff was courteous and helpful.
The breakfast was mediocre - basically buns, cheese and berry spread, cereals and cold boiled egg. (utensils were stainless steel BTW, but bowls from cheap plastic). Ours and our friends rooms were very quite around the clock. Room cleanliness was average. The 13" room TV had many italian channels, BBC News and CNN. The window had a view of a small side street. The hotel location was great, and on the average it was an "average" hotel had we get the bigger bathroom.
Never stay here ! (bis)
Never stay here!It was a horrible stay, horrible room, horrible breakfast. The bedrom had one window behind a wall, so it was like we didn't have any window at all. It was a very depressing experience.The bathroom is too small with water all over the floor.The A/C worked, but water was leaking abondantly over the horrible, old carpet.Breakfast was "served" on plastic plates with plastic spoons, forks etc, the bread was hard, etc etc.It was definately NOT a 4 star hotel! Hardly 2-star-hotel either. We just came from a wonderful Italian 4-star hotel so we could compare. The "first" 4 star hotel was a delight- Hotel Anglo Americano a joke.
A dump. Bathroom is terrible, 3X3 stall with curtain so floor floods, no place to put soup or tear open shampoos, small room, bad bed and sheets, dingy hallways, no work area or desk. A 2.5 star, not 4 star.
Never Ever Stay Here!!!
A horrible hotel....they must have paid off the "Star" people. I would rate this a 2 star at most. The location was good but that was it. The staff was rude and uncooperative during our three day stay Juy 8- 11, 2003. The ants in the croissants at breakfast made us stick with packaged food like yogurt. The juices were so watered down as to be unrecognizable. At checkout I was griled as to whether I had used the mini-bar. I was almost ready to tell them I used something just to get them off my back! The A/C dosen't work, weird plumbing noises, and strange smells. NEVER STAY HERE!!!!
Nice location, but that's about it
It needs updating really bad. Definitely NOT a four-star hotel. Beds were small, room was dark and noisy at all hours.

The highlight of last night's foray into Rome nightlife was the discovery that most bars only have one toilet for all patrons. To combat the massive queues, us guys decided to go two at a time. Of course, I eventually suggested we try doing three at once. We took a selfie crossing swords. I'm feeling rther proud of myself. That was the last night of the tour for myself and quite a few others. You can guess that it was a rather large night for some, ...

Next was a "night walk," another 2 hours, to include the Trevi fountain. We ( and over half the group!) opted out, experiencing instead another quintessential Roman thrill, a taxi ride. Seriously, the only calm passenger in our cab was Karen, who just smiled and said, "Hanoi." It was ...
Well I guess we are burning out a little regarding site seeing. We went to the pantheon in the morning and walked all around, not wanting to brave the crowds at the Vatican etc... Marc met a former postdoctoral Luca Cannettierre for coffee and then we went on another walk, by the Castel St Angelo...where they kept Vatican prisoners and ...
