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.
I recently stayed in this hotel and aside from the lack of variety in every day breakfast, I don't have any other negative comment about it. Room rate was good. The location is pretty much convenient, 5 to 10 minutes walking distance from Termini Station and from there you can get buses or metro to the historical landmarks. There are also restaurants, gelaterias, money exchange and supermarket nearby. The staff was kind and attentive.

Giorgio on reception is the best thing about the place. We had a four person room, which was actually across the road. Hotel is actually a couple of groups of rooms with a vestibule. Very hard to find, but they were tearing up the road when we were there, so access was difficult. Comfortable room, small though, as is common in older buildings. Service was excellent and breakfast was nice, very Roman. If you walk the wrong way at night it is a little sketchy, but not too bad. Walked to the Colosseum, but taxi back.
I had booked a single room in the hotel. The room was cheap.. around thirty euros for the night.. but after checking in i found that i had to pay an extra charge to use the AC!! This was a shock as it was 40 degrees outside and the room was hot as a furnace!

Found being near the main train station (10 minute walk max) meant getting around the city so much simpler all public transport and tour busses go to the termini. Room was clean, breakfast was brought to our room at our specified time - just a bit sweet for our tastes! Clean towels daily. Fruit plus tea and coffee making equipment in room. We needed a taxi back to the airport in the early hours of the morning, the staff ordered us one without hesitation. Reception not manned 24 hours but we felt confident we could call any of the phone numbers left on reception overnight if we needed to. Not good for disabled travellers as quite a few steps into the b&b and the bed was pretty low.
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.
