“good 3 star hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

for the price we paid (50e per night, for a double room in B&B for 2) it was great. room reasonably clean, buffet breakfast, although only cereals and fresh croissants were available, but this is tipical of italian breakfast. our room was modern and almost new. only negative was some bad smell coming from the pipes of the bathroom, which was not much of an issue for us as we kept the toilet door closed and we were out almost all day anyway. location excellent, 5 minutes walk from termini station, on the way to the city centre.

Stayed in the "Hotel" Elide for 1 night in June 2012 for a business trip, it´s actually a B&B. Located in an old building on Via Firenze, about 25 m from a main street (Via Nationale) and 2 blocks from Plaza República Subway station. there is a small old lift to take you to the lobby on the second floor. The rooms are in a 3rd floor area, they were nice and clean altough the bathroom was really small, but the shower was OK in size, although I didn´t like the fact that there was a shower curtain instead of a sliding door (find it unhygienic). The A/C was great, cooled to a nice 18oC which was important since it was doing about 40oC outside during the day. Only stayed one night so I didn´t see the breakfast buffet. They say they have WiFi, but it only works in a 2 x 2 area in front of the main desk on the second floor. No coverage in the rooms. I practically had to sit near the front desk to get any WiFi service.

Yes, we stay 2 nights in this hotel.

1. Location: This hotel located very near to Termini station, less then 10 min walks.
2. Room: Room size is in average. howeever the room is very noisy, Windows are not sound-proof. In the middle of late night, you will hear people passing and trash -truck empty the trash. This hotel is not recommended to the one who has a problem with silence.
3. Breakfast: Looks like a pantry, instead of resto. I can not imagine what if all the guests have a breakfast at the same time! Breakfast menu: Coffee and tea(machine), bread, croissants, butter, jam, cornflakes, milk. Thats all!
4. Amenities: haha.. nothing is free.! Safety deposit box = 10EUR, Air Conditioner remote = 5 EUR. What a 3 star hotels !

Overall, this hotel is too expensive with almost no facility!

So I booked this hotel on booking.com for a business trip to Rome. It is very well located (less than 10 mins from Termini Station and very close to Metro too) and easy to find. The area is not one of the most quiet ones but not too noisy at the same time.
The reception staff was very helpful and managed to get me my room before the usual check-in time (around 2). The room (n.117) was tiny but had everything you need and it was surely very clean and recently renovated. I didn't make it in time to get the breakfast (included).
In the end I highly recommend this place to get to visit Rome.

Except for the location, which is absolutely great, the nice staff and the fact that the room was clean and quite cheep (250 euros for 5 nights - 2 persons), there's nothing good I can say about the hotel. Everything there is very very small - room, bathroom, breakfast room, kitchen.

The room in which we stayed (226) was I think 3 meters long and 2 meters wide, with the most uneven walls I ever saw in my entire life. It was so bad that the bed could not be in any way positioned to be parallel with the side walls even if it was perpendicular on the wall behind it - boggles the mind. However, it was clean and recently renovated by the looks of it and if you're not planning to spend too much time in the room it's ok. The internal court yard looks horrible - dirty and old - and you have no sun light in the room.

I didn't get much rest because in the morning, at around 7, when breakfast starts, you can hear people passing on the corridor, and if you're a light sleeper you'll wake up for sure. I think it's worse if you stay on the first floor - where the reception is - or near the sliding door from floor 2 - which I could hear even from a long distance away.

Breakfast is very very poor - 2 kind of cereals, bread, butter and some kind of jelly they try to pass as being jam - don't pay for it. The room where it's served is very small and dark.

Make sure you have ENOUGH CASH with you. You'll need to pay a fee for visiting Rome which is 2 euros/person/day and they don't accept credit card for that. Also some restaurants don't accept credit card, so make sure you ask first.

But, as I was saying, the location is excellent, You're 1-2 kilometers away from the most well known tourist attractions - Fontana di Trevi, Colosseum, Bocca Della Verità, etc. Even if I was horrified when I first entered the hotel and the room, I think I'd go back for 2-3 more days - go figure that out :) Rome is fabulous!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor with a window facing the closed court yard and away from the slid...

The hotel located close to termini station (5 min walk) and to the historical city center (10-15 min walk).
The hotel is nice, the room was big, modern and comfy.
The staff was very nice!
Breakfast was very basic but nice!

The hotel seems a little bit shady going in at first... But its a small hotel with small rooms but very clean and it is in the middle of everything and very good neighberhood near the presidential palace.... Also there are two prime metro station within walking distance about two/three blocks.

If on a budget its a great deal!!
