The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ok although maybe more of a selection on cereals would be nice. Rooms were ok and fairly clean. One day no fresh towels were delivered or bed made, however this was due to a huge group departing. Staff did apologise once they realised at 4pm.
There is a wonderful fountain at the bottom of the road which is beautiful to sit at all times of the day.
The restaurant across the road is really reasonable price and super friendly.
Perfect city break.
The hotel is close to Termini station and very handy for restaurants and bars - some excellent.
The hotel itself is good - rooms are quiet, clean and air conditioned with comfortable beds. Staff were helpful and friendly. The rooftop 'solarium' and jacuzzi were a real bonus. Breakfasts were buffet-style and, again, very good.
A couple of minor niggles - the room had very little in the way of surfaces for suitcase unpacking or storage and the coffee at breakfast was not of a standard one has grown to expect in Italy.
These comments aside, a lovely, well-located hotel that we are very happy to recommend.
I stayed there only one night, and didn't have much time to explore the hotel amenities. But the room is comfortable and very clean, the place is quiet and relaxing, very pleasant indeed. And it's only five-minute walk from Termini, which is fantastic.
This hotel is old, but well maintained. The neighborhood is not the best, although we never had any problems nor we were afraid when out at night. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel and the closest metro stop is about a 10 minute walk. There were several terrific restaurants a couple of blocks from the hotel. The staff was quite nice and helpful. Rooms were quiet.
I booked my stay at the Principe rather last minute, about 2 days before my stay. In those days I had to ring the hotel a couple of times to clarify a few details of my stay. Although the receptionist didnt speak completely fluent English, he tried his very best to help me, and was extremely friendly and polite.
Upon arrival I went to check in and was told I was actually staying in a different hotel around the corner, hotel 'Donatello'. Im still not entirely sure why this happened, but I can't complain since the Donatello turned out to be a very nice hotel.
So, because of this, I can't comment on the Principle's facilities, but I certainly would recommend them for their customer service and the location, very convenient for Rome Termini and the Colosseum.
Rome’s central train station, Termini is the entry point to the city from Fiumicino Airport, and is an impressive modern architectural sight. Between here and glamorous Via Veneto, there are several interesting places to visit. The Palazzo Barberini is a superb baroque palace, the Terme di Diocleziano was the city’s largest bath complex and the Church of Santa Maria della Concezione is remarkable for its Capuchin monks’ crypt.
