Not a 4-star hotel it claims to bePosted Sep 30, 2013
Location: Good access to the Vatican (local bus, taxi)
Hotel seems to be a popular destination for packaged tour groups. Only chose this hotel as family member/friend was staying. Hotel facility was not great. The room has a very old air conditioning unit which you do even have a remote control for (need to call an engineer if you want to adjust temperature). Walls are very thin you can hear everything from next door. The hotel has many rooms but restaurant/bar facility is only there to serve continental breakfast (lunch/dinner is available but was told most of them are ready-made microwavable/oven heat food). Hotel guests will have to walk to a nearby restaurant for any decent food. However, this short walk in the evening proved to be the most uncomfortable and dangerous as we were approached by a small car with two men who insisted they were "police" (clearly not!) demanding us to tell where we were from etc.

Hotel is placed away from the centre of Rome.Posted Aug 24, 2013
Cons: Everything in this hotel is made the cheapest way possible so it has no quality.
Location: Use metro and you can visit any place you want. But you have to walk 15 minutes to get to metro station.
Every day the same breakfast. I think that scrambled eggs had nothing to do this eggs. Bread was not fresh. Generally the cheapest version of breakfast that you can imagine. Staff is not very helpfull. Swimming pool is too deep for children. Wii-Fii is a complete joke-it only works at reception area-with poor efficiency. The fridge in room is complete lie, because it is not cooling anything and it looked like it was aprox.20 yrs old. On TV in english you have only CNN News and nothing else. The volume is restricted so you cannot hear your TV sounds when you have open window, because of horrible noise made by about 10 hudge fans placed outside. This hotel should have max. 2stars. That is the worst hotel I have ever visited, considering that I was hotel manager for many years.

Rooms average, but had breakfast included in price. This was very basic eg only had scrabled eggs or bolied eggs, 1 type of sliced chesse and 1 type of sliced pressed ham, corassants jams and 3 types of cerials.

Reception staff very helpful.

You get what you pay for?Posted Jun 13, 2013
Cons: breakfast and bar staff
Pleasant hotel , dated but clean and had a wall of fragrant jasmin in front. Breakfast was poor and take earplugs as very noisy with thinwalls and coaches outside. However with earplugs , you will find very clean basic rooms and comfy beds. Reception and maids friendly

Good price but mediocre hotelPosted Jun 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
Asked for non-smoking, and the room had a smoking stench. Concierge was helpful, particularly because they were able to exchange USD to euros. The bed was not comfortable due to the very noticeable split down the middle. Walls are extremely thin. Not sure why the picture shows a pool, they do not have a pool.

reasonable value for the moneyPosted May 31, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel Princess is tucked away off the main roads in Rome keeping traffic and road noise to a minimum. It is located a close walk to a bus stop, and about a 15-20 minute walk to a metro station. Our room was of a European small size, with twin beds, just as we requested and expected. Bathroom included a very dated hairdryer that didn't work all that well. Room included a safe and desk and windows. For the money, it was a reasonable hotel for our needs for a couple of nights stay.

Hotel is comfortable but the location is not soPosted Apr 21, 2013
Location: The location is not the best but as its on the outskirts one does escape the hyped up prices near the attractions
The hotel was very comfortable and the food nice, the downside was that the hotel was 20 mins walk to the metro station, to catch the underground to thevatican and other sites. I had booked this hotel because it described it being 10 mins from the Vatican and it wasn't so but on the positive side got to use the local transport.

Good value for a stay in RomePosted Apr 17, 2013
Pros: WiFi and the other guests that I met during my stay.
Cons: While the hot water was copious and great, the drain in the tub was slow.
Location: It"s in a quiet neighborhood with one other hotel and apartments.
This hotel is a good value for the price. This was my second stay and both times, I was completely satisfied. The staff were helpful and accommodating. The location is perfect if one has rented a car while in Rome. The hotel is easily accessible from the G.R.A. and, as a result, an easy ride from either airport and 15 minutes by car to downtown. There are several good restaurants in the area is one wants to eat locally. The exterior is a bit worn and the parking lot needs some work. That is not something I consider important, I appreciate the free WiFi that worked excellently and easy parking. The breakfast buffet was not spectacular but certainly adequate -- much better than some I've has in Rome. I would recommend this hotel to a friend.

A week in RomePosted Apr 7, 2013
Pros: The staff was very good
Cons: The noise in our room and no English channels other than BBC.
Location: Location was off the beaten tract was a E 15 to E 20 ride to Vatican area
We had a handicap room,just next to the service elevator,we heard every move by the housekeeping staff. The other problem was our area of the hotel was not carpeted so the sound was magnified. It was just very loud. I have worked and managed hotels in my lifetime But the owners need to correct that condition.the other problem the area it is isolated down Two side streets.not able to walk to any stores.the restaurant was excellent food was very good. The tv had only one English language BBC world news,we did find Dave letterman on occasion. Our party had a person in a wheelchair (provided by the hotel) we had to use Taxi cabs every where we went. In spite of the problems Rome and the Princess was worth it!
