Historical Traveler Reviews Eliseo Hotel Rome
Very good hotel
Just back from Rome and stayed in the Hotel Eliseo. Found the staff especially to be excellent and really pleasant. The room was a good size, very clean, and comfortable. The buffet breakfast was very good and the view from breakfast room was beautiful. Location was great - walked everywhere easily and safely. Hotel is up a hill and close to the 132-steps of the Spanish Steps so I would not recommend it for people with small children or with walking difficulties but overall we were really pleased with the hotel and had a lovely stay.
Good location, needs updating
The hotel is in a good location, we caught the bus to most of the sights just around the corner. The rooms were badly in need of updating especially the bathrooms, the shower in our room leaked all over the floor. the breakfast was good with a fantastic view. The staff were helpful. We would stay here again because of the location and the great rate we were able to get from the hotel booking office at the railway.
Hotel Eliseo in Rome
Hotel is charming with very knowledgeable staff willing to help with dinner reservations. Charming small rooms with everything you need, ie hairdryer, good shower,. The dining room on the roof for breakfast overlooks the Borghese Gardens and in good wether is a breathtakingly beautiful view. Very good breakfast,Location is excellen within old wall and very walkable area.
We got a great deal on this hotel from Venere and we were pleasantly surprised to find such a lovely hotel. They gave us a nice, clean, portable crib for our toddler (free of charge) - but unfortunately the crib made it impossible to walk in our very small room. Understanding the situation, they immediately upgraded us to a small suite at no charge. The hotel is very well located and in a beautiful area. The Metro line is nearby and is an excellent, cheap way to explore the city. The staff was very eager to help. The breakfast was lovely (except for the coffee...). I think the hotel may need some updating, but it's very comfortable, clean and charming.
Actually a pretty decent hotel
We booked this hotel as part of an Expedia package based on its excellent location, but were very apprehensive! It turned out just fine. We were upgraded to a suite, somewhat strangely shaped, for no extra cost. The rooms were smallish but perfectly comfortable, and beds were fine. It is a little worn around the edges, maybe a little old-fashioned. Marble bathrooms up to date and quite clean. Service was good, anxious to please and very friendly. View from the rooftop breakfast room cannot be beat - Villa Borghese to the north, St.
Peter's dome to the west. You can walk to the Spanish steps in about ten minutes downhill; there is a Metro tunnel with escalators that proves helpful after a day slogging the city. Breakfasts were excellent - fruit, ham, cereal, the works.
So disappointed with the hotel, it is marked as a 4 star hotel on Expedia but it was more of a 2 star if that. The rooms were very small, the bed was so uncomfortable and the mattress seemed about 20 years old. The bathroom was very grubby and the shower pointed at the wall so you were lucky to get wet. The furniure needed updating as the wardrobe was falling apart, the rest of the furniture had paint peeling and the walls were no better.
Needs updating and Cleaning
Looks like the hotel was nice... several years ago. A beautiful old building that was subjected to "updating" maybe late 80s and not maintained much since. Everything was verging on decrepit, from the red carpet desperately in need of a shampoo to the grafitti on the exterior and broken stonework. Air conditioning barely worked, and the street was too loud to open windows at night AND sleep. Breakfast on the roof was the high point- a nice view of Borghese gardens and the cool-looking "hot air balloon". Not all that convenient to any of the tourist sights or even local nightlife.
O.K., not great
Stayed here 6/30-7/5. Hotel features average sized rooms with poor soundproofing. Air conditioning only marginally adequate. Staff ranged from OK to extremely helpful, especially the barman Santino, who was teriffic. Buffet breakfast and view from the buffet were excellent.
Biggest drawback was the location-at the top of the Via Veneto, which meant a long, uphill walk from wherever we happened to be. Would recommend only if needing to stay in that particular neighborhood.

... waiting to get into terminal H. We asked some people in line and they confirmed our worst fear: this was a "line" to get through passport control for international flights. It wasn't clear to us that we'd have to go through another queue after already clearing security or we would have waited to get through this second set of gates prior to doing anything else. So we joined the hundreds of other people that had formed a slow-moving wall of human impatience. ...
... the Trattoria al Cupolone. Every one of the many cafes along this little pedestrian-only street was beginning to fill-up rapidly, as many of the papal onlookers had apparently developed quite an appetite. We had a very pleasant and attentive waiter, and proceeded to devour our meals of bruschetta, pasta with baby clams, risotto and mushrooms, veal cutlet, and gelato (of course!)
After lunch, the tour director foolishly hailed what turned out to be a ...
... a church so lavishly decorated was rather breathtaking. The ceilings either covered in extravagant frescos or gold filagree. Paintings of Madonna ad Child everywhere you looked. Elaborate pews and altars. Votive candles. All very elaborate. This night we found a little Irish pub where we had some delicious Bolognese and ravioli for dinner. The next day we spent zipping around the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, the Villa Borghese Gardens and the Pantheon. ...

I don't think he knows it yet. We are just waiting for it to pop up in conversation.) came over for dinner. Instead of bringing scrambled brownies (refer to entry titled "First church service" if you don't know about the scrambled brownies) they brought us Keebler ...
As the week drew closer to an end our final days encroached upon my joie de vivre. There was little we hadn't seen, but I resented the idea of having to cram anything in with obligation. Wednesday rolled around, and we gathered ourselves embodying an attitude of che sera sera. Eventually we were on our way to Villa Borghese park towards Galleria Borghese. This museum was a reservation only destination and ...
