We stayed at the Elyse for one night after a cruise and before our departure for home the next day. I chose it because of its proximity to Termini and a favourable price.
While the map shows it is literally across the street from Termini, it is actually 3 or 4 long blocks from the main entrance. If you are arriving in Rome by train look for a station exit closer to Via Cairoli.
The hotel is older but this is Rome - what do you expect? We found the lobby very hospitable and the staff very friendly and helpful. There are no elevators and the bellman wasn't around so I shuttled our bags up one flight of stairs to our room.
The room was clean with air conditioning and a large bathroom with a shower only. We were not situated on the busy streets or facing the station so noise wasn't an issue and we slept comfortably.
If you are used to walking then you will be able to reach the main attractions by foot.. Otherwise the hotel is within blocks of two metro stations.
In the morning there was breakfast that included pastry, fruit and toast. They stored our luggage for us after we checked out so we could spend more time touring the city before we caught the airport bus (located at Termini).
If you are on a budget and just looking for a convenient place to park your bags while you spend the day and evening exploring Rome then the Elyse should work for you.
