Hotel is in a perfect location so very easy to get around. I do like a good breakfast but Breakfast it could have been better. The bakery was dry and not so fresh. Staff were nice and always greeted, and very polite. I think the hotel should provide an iron atleast on request. But I had to pay for ironing service.
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.
A lovely welcoming hotel with old world glamour in a rather unprepossessing part of Rome - the student quarter. The hotel staff were the most courteous, charming and helpful I've ever come across (all of them). Very good tram connections right outside the door and a well stocked supermarket right on the corner. La Mucca Bichera restaurant on Via Degli Equi is well worth a visit. Great menu choice. Also interesting Roman city walls and aqueduct nearby and the tomb of the Roman baker in the Piazza Maggiore. If you can ignore the rather scruffy surrounds, I would highly recommend this lovely hotel.

"Good location on which to base your trip to Rome "
We had a triple room, which did make it a bit of a squeeze but we had three full sized beds which was good. The hotel is located about 4 blocks behind Termini Station. Don't be put off by the busy station, which like any major station does look a bit seedy, Via Vasese is a quiet street and it is easy to get the shuttle bus from the airport to to Termini and Hotel Europa is a short walk.
The staff at Hotel Europa were friendly and helpful, the room and bathroom were nicely decorated and clean. When I asked questions (how does the safe work or is the air conditioning broken) they sent someone to sort it out immediately.
We stayed bed and breakfast which is something I would recommend, plenty of fruit, cereals pastries, meats or cheeses - a real convenience to start your day sightseeing in Rome.
Hotel Europa isn't The Waldorf, it doesn't pretend to be but it is a quality hotel and perfect for a short break in Rome.
The Trevi Fountain was closed for refurbishment when we were there so i didn't throw my coins (and I wasn't going to throw the coins into the foot bath provided) therefore I may never return to Rome. However if I do visit Rome again I would have no hesitation in booking Hotel Europa.

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.
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.
