I am a "regular" customer of Hotel Elysè. Since many years, I come here at least once a year. As already written on other occasions, I find the hotel extremely handy for its position, so close to the Termini Railway Station. It is just less than 10 minutes away from it, so you can come here at the hotel, have a quick shower and be ready to explore and enjoy ROME! The room they gave me this time was the best I have ever had. Spacious, quite, nice. Unfortunately I stayed there only one night! but I will return hopefully in October/November as the kind lady at the Reception suggested me to do. Breakfast is within standard range, it should perhaps be improved a bit. I definitely recommend this hotel to everybody, especially people arriving/leaving by train or who need to reach the Fiumicino Airport.

I had already been a guest of this hotel in the past and I have decided to return here also this year. The hotel is nice. It is very close to the Roma Termini railway station so very handy for all those who arrive by train, great for getting to the Fiumicino airport as well as to take any tram, bus or metro to visit Rome. Breakfast is in the average. I recommend it.

It was a great hotel with good service. It was close to the termini so you get there very quickly if you come with the bus to termini from airports. It took about 10-15 minutes from us to get there from termini. The only bad thing was that the hotel was quite noisy on days but you wont spent your days in the hotel. We were very happy with my girlfriend that we choosed this hotel.

The Staff was friendly, and the place clean. However, the bathrooms are in dire need of an upgrade as some things were broken and very old. In addition, the location is very inconvenient to the center of the city unless you want to hang out near the University of Rome. Otherwise you will be walking extremely long distances or using a taxi to get to the center everyday you are there.

The hotel is ok for that price, rooms are clean, but very noisy, you can hear all the traffic from the street and Termini station plus neigboughs. Breakfast very poor- only sweat croissant offered every every day, no sandwiches, egg, ham, cheese, possibility of only getting one coffe or tee per person. I was ill and asked the girl on reception for hot water and was told no, because she dont know how to use the kitchen..

POSITIVE: Very nice people, all of them, always kind and smiling. Convenient next to the Termini railway station. Offered to choose between two different alternative rooms. Room 21 had a very good bed. Room somewhat large compared to other hotels, and a very nice bathroom. Good offer of fresh fruits for breakfast. MEDIUM: Breakfast good, but a bit sweet. An alternative (e.g. cheese or eggs) would be nice for variation. NEGATIVE: Not so load, but everlasting traffic noise from the busy street outside. The room itself (room 21) could need a new wallpaper and curtain.

I was with my sister, took a double room and I wonder what size of the room and bathroom. Breakfast was simple say basic but very satisfactory. Certainly have great value between cost and benefit.

We stayed 5 days in Rome and were pleased with the hotel. Very helpful staff. The rooms overlooking the street are noisy but we could get another room overlooking the garden which was quieter.

The room we stayed in was spacious and quiet. Although the breakfast was on the sweeter side, I figure I need the extra calories if I am going to sight-see all day long. Breakfast was served by a very nice lady and she made us fresh coffee, which really helped get our day started. The staff was really nice and helped us find information for everything we needed from locating laundry service to finding how TerraVision worked. The neighborhood can be a bit of a shock if you came from a clean place like Amsterdam, like we did, but it is mainly an immigrant/business area so it is pretty safe to walk around even late into the night. Tagging/graffiti is everywhere; it is just something you have to get used to in Rome. There are great places to eat dinner in the San Lorenzo neighborhood near Via dei Latini. When you are exiting the Metro as the hotel direction suggest make sure you take the Mamiami (sp?), cause we got off on the other side of Vittorio EmanueleII plaza and had to walk around with our luggage, not fun.

This was our first trip to Roma, It was quite the experience. The staff at the hotel was very helpful, and very nice. (its hard to find nice helpful people in Italy). The hotel was very close to the termini, not in a very good neighborhood. The breakfast that they served was alright, they had yogurt, and some crossiants and buns, and had juice and coffee. That was the only thing served in the hotel. The only thing we found wrong with the hotel was very thin walls, and the shower was very touchy and small. But over all was great. we would go back to this hotel.

Hot dog buns, no eggs or cheese. Suits to travelers who need a nice, clean hotel room, but spend the day exploring the city. Although hotel's neighborhoods were Rome's Chinatown and railway station area, we had no trouble in the streets.

the hotel was near the main rail station so easy to get to but was affected by noise from the trains and also the tram station just accross the road. the hotel itself could do with a makeover as the carpets and decoration are worn. the staff we met were very friendly and even though i speak only a little italian they did their utmost to help with any queries i had.the room was cleaned eveery day and the bed linen was also changed daily,the breakfast available was always the same coffee,juice,pastries and assorted jams and whilst not that exciting did provide enough to get you going in the morning.the area the hotel is in can seem intimidating but we never felt threatened even late at night.we walked to all the sites in rome from the hotel but if you need to there are two metro stations within 800m that can get you to most of the main sites.there are plenty of places to eat nearby but the best we found was the trattoria cecio on via principe amedeo about a five minute walk away, the food was very good and the two young guys waiting on were by far the most friendliest waiters we came accross in rome.

The hotel is located next to the railway and tram facilities so it makes the hotel very noisy. It must have been a beautiful hotel years ago but now needs substantial cleaning (curtains, carpets, etc.). We have spent 11 nights and each day the same breakfast was served (coffe or tea, sweet croissant, hot dog sandwich, orange juice, butter, bananas, peaches or apples, joghurts, and some packed sweets). The hotel's advantage was it's very good location, close to the metro stations and some touristic atractions.

We were 8 persons, age 8 - 70. Our stay at Elyse was really a good choice. The hotel is small, friendly, like a home, quiet. The service we got during the week was also very service minded and friendly. We sure want to recommend this hotel for both families, groups and couples. The location nearby Trevini (station) was perhaps not the best from the surroundings point of view, but on the other hand it was very easy to use the public transport and many sights very even on a walk distance.

A great location, doesn't matter that the surroundings look a bit dirty, if you are in Rome you shouldn't be staying in your hotel much anyway! There is so much to do, get the Roma Pass for 20 euro it's worth it. We stayed for 5 nights, staff were helpful and friendly, breakfast is minimal and sweet but it's enough to get you going and you can take fruit with you for later. The hotel could do with a redecorate but it is very clean.

This hotel is nothing spectacular however, the rooms are quaint and clean and perfect for resting your head after a long day in beautiful Rome and the staff is ready to assist you 24 hours a day, providing you with good advice and a welcoming smile. (I even called to double check which bus I could take on my way back from town). The neighborhood in which the hotel is located is not too clean and seems very intimidating and 'unsafe', but I assure you that it is not. All it is, is just not very pretty on the eyes. Just walk a few blocks in any direction away from the Hotel and you will find yourself in cleaner surroundings. Rome is very large and many immigrants are making their way to the large city (most of them set up shop in the hotel neighborhood). Don't worry about them, they are there to make a living not to rob you or harm you. This hotel is within blocks from one major train station (which provides direct train service to Fiumicino Airport) and the underground metro ,which took us everywhere we needed to go on days that it rained and we didn't feel like walking. It is also close to many bus lines. And if you do feel like walking, you can do that too, just make sure you are wearing comfy shoes. As you would when traveling anywhere, always be aware and cautious of your surroundings and look over your shoulders from time to time. I would go back to Elyse` in a heart beat unless of course I came in to some major cash and could afford one of the 5-star hotels in Piazza di Spagna! Until then, spend wisely, you are going to need it while in Italia.

This hotel was excellent value for money. It's no luxury 5 star hotel but it was very clean and nicely decorated and the staff were brilliant. I was fully expecting a run down 2* hotel but was more than plesantly suprised! It was actually better than some 3 and 4* hotels I have stayed in. Would definitely stay again. Don't be put off by the area either, we were 3 girls travelling together and didn't have any problems, and taxi's into the centre were around 12 Euros.

Very nice reception. Room clean and private bathroom. Shower not very big. Surroundings are a little scary. Nevertheless, nothing happened and it is well connected by bus to the center although it is only 15 minutes walk from "Il Colosseo".

Although the surrounding is not that great it is however quite handy for people who gets to Rome by train and arrive in Termini station (just 10/15 minutes walk). The room where we stayed was large and nice as well as the toilet facility. They both had large windows. The hotel is very clean and tidy and has a nice atmosphere. They changed our towels and sheets every day. The staff was extremely nice and kind. One day although we were very late for breakfast they served it all the same just for the three of us (my boyfriend, a friend of mine and myself). They suggested places where to eat and gave us other useful information.

Convenient location as it was easy to get to the centre of the city by metro or walking. The front desk lady was very helpful in directing us to locations and good restaurants. Really nice and relaxing room though it was noisy in the mornings.

Room was very nice and wide, but very noisy because of the street traffic, maybe rooms on the other side of the corridor are more quite. Breakfast needs to be improved: only sweet stuffis served. The position of the hotel is good : just a few meters far from P.zza Vittorio tube station and however many of the most important historic places may be reached with a walk. The hotel is located in the heart of Chinatown. surroundings are a bit dirty and untidy.

Excellent place. The location is great for touristing. Restaurants near by. The atention is great also, remember to ask them for information about routes of buses in Rome, they will explain you a small tour over the center that you can do with public transport. Only downs could be that the room was very small and not fancy. Breakfast is very simple also. If you don't mind about those little points the place is excellent and comfortable, plus a GREAT price with a GREAT location and service.

It was a very nice stay; the employees were very helpful and had many tips for the discovering of the city. The hotel is near the station, so it's easy to get a metro, train or bus. The breakfast was typical italien, but it was possible to take some fruit or cakes for the "second" breakfast! :-)

The hotel is quite close with the railway station, less than 10 minutes by walk. Just go alone the street by the railway station, the hotel is at the corner. The hotel actually locates in China town but is quite close to major sites. About 15 minutes walk, and you can see the colossal. Room is simple and old but the reception is quite warm and nice. In the store nearby you can by a big water with 0,60 cents which would be 2 euros in downtown. The room is quite if not for the sound of flush of the next door.

Welcoming staff, very helpful. The room was quite spacious and had all the necessary items and services, and was physically clean although smelt of old cigarette smoke. The hotel generally appears a little shabby and timeworn, although this is not a major distraction. The bathroom was very clean and quite luxurious. Slightly noisy due to being on a busy corner, but this seems to be a common problem in the big Italian cities and should not prejudice the establishment.

Very good choice for price/quality relation, considering the price level in Rome. Next door to Termini without hearing anything from the busy train station. Walking distance to several sights. Very welcoming and nice staff, family atmosphere. The rooms are clean, somewhat old, but very much acceptable. We enjoyed the stay here, indeed.

Find a different place to stay! The hotel was in a very bad part of town. It was old, the rugs were disgustingly filthy. No elevators. There was no place to eat around the location. The hotel staff did not speak good English. The air conditioner gets shut off in the middle of the night and they won't turn it back on.

Rooms have been OK. Price/quality relation from acceptable to OK. Employees were cooperative and polite, most of them competent. The room we had was clean and quiet. The breakfast-buffet was somewhat poor for guests used with Central-European Hotels. The imediate neighbourhood was disappointing.Only chinese and indian shops. The walking distance to public transportation (Metro , Tram at Piazza V.Emanuele)was somewhat longer, about 500m, then we took it from the Map shown in the description. There are two Buss stations closed to the Hotel (Buss 70 and 71) but the busses arrive rarely and irregularly.

The hotel's owner and employees were very friendly. The hotel is placed in very noisy area (next to the Termini station and busy roads) but if you close the room window you can hear hardly anything from the outside noises. The beakfast was enough but provided only sweet foods (honey, cakes, marmalade, croissant, coffe/tea)

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Elyse. After we struggled a little to find it, (more my map reading fault!) we found it to be a very pleasant little place. Only downsides were the walk to and from it, the area smells and frankly is not very nice, but once at the hotel it's all good. Although, the walls are a bit thin, we were woken everytime someone else flushed their toilet! Other than that, the staff were excellent and friendly, courteous and helpful. Breakfast was excellent, bathrooms were great. Recommended!

A faded three star hotel, with very friendly staff, in a "not so nice" location. Faded because of - worn out carpets (holes & spots) - wall paper hanging loose / torn down - aircondition not working (no problem in winter time) - bathroom door stuck

If it weren't for the bathroom and the location this place would have been perfect. The staff at breakfast was just lovely, and the breakfast itself was equally so. The lobby and the room were charming and comfortable and the lady that received us at check in was the nicest Roman woman I met during our stay in Rome. It's close to the station which was convenient on arrival and departure... but late at night it wasn't the most desirable of areas. Beware of walking next to the station late at night, we almost got robbed (though you could be robbed anywhere in the city). The room was very refreshing, comfortable, and well equipt but the shower was a bit smallish and the drain seemed to have an issue or two.... We really enjoyed this place though. Wish we could've stayed here all four nights of our stay (it was only available the last two).

Location is sort of grimy roman chinatown, but the hotel and its employees will make up for that. Nice clean hotel, courteous and helpful personnel, breakfast OK. Few hundreds metres walking from Termini Station, even closer to its Air Terminal. Definitely good relationship between price and quality. Not many hotels offer a double room for less than 70 euros in Rome and, I must add, some structures charging twice as much aren't any better :)

Excelente hotel económico para visitar Roma. Muy cerca de la estación de Termini, lo cual es una ventaja si llegas en el tren desde el aeropuerto y una desventaja porque se encuentra en una zona no muy cuidada.
