Hotel Princess4.0 out of 5.0

I enjoyed my stay here and breakfast was delicious! It was in a great location and stuff were attentive. The room was clean and came with most amenities. The hotel was basic but we were out exploring most of the time and was just a place to sleep and shower
Travel groups usually prefer there and there are always carabiniery cars parking. It may be a guest house for italian carabiniery. If you dont travel with the buses of travel groups, ıt would be hard to walk to the metro station. That road became a nightmare for me under the burning sun. But i know that it wont bother anybody in a moderate weather. The breakfast was not very satisfying, full of pastry. And unfortunately just one type of italian cheese (the cheapest one). You can find the markets and other stores near the metro station. There is a mercato (open bazaar) close to the hotel but we have never seen the stores open in the mercato.
Well, the staff is helpful & friendly, you get daily cleanup with towels changing and amenities replenished and overall cleanliness is OK, you have a big pool to refresh after a hot day in Rome (but take care as it's open only until 7 p.m.), air conditioning in room was working, but... the hotel itself could use "some love". Apparently you can get a second key card so you would not be able to leave the AC running through the day, scrambled eggs seems to be made from "dust eggs", same varieties for breakfast day after day. You could use buses 246 for a 4 stops ride to go to Cornelia Metro station, but in Sundays it seems they are quite rare so check before plan your trip to downtown.
Not 4 stars, to be honest. Don't expect much. It's clean, rooms are also clean, but it's outdated. WiFi is breaking constantly. Breakfast is good, a lot of stuff. Also a lot for desert, pastries, cakes, compote... Scrambled eggs and wieners dissappear in seconds, so you have to wait for 10 minutes for them to refill if you didn't cach a moment when it was there. Walls are pretty thin, we could hear girls next door talking and laughing (they were not loud, walls are just too thin). But that didn't bother us. Hotel is 20 minutes walk from metro (Cornelia station), but if you go left from the street, in couple of meters is a bus station, and you can ride bus directly to the metro.
the rooms could do with a bit of modernisation, but the friendly and helpful staff are what run this place,they are amazing people they go out of their way to help you,i hope hotel management realise what a special staff they have,it was in a quiet location, a taxi to rome was about 18 euros each way so not too bad between friends not much to do in the evening other than sit in a local café,theres not a lot of well if any nightclubs or things like that,other than the modernisation of some of the rooms it was a good place to stay continental breakfast was good
Rooms smelly, damp, smell of drain, wifi that hardly works, one plug point in room, decor is old and dated, many non functioning amenities. Restaurant has limited menu and expensive with poor quality food. The staff are friendly enough which earns them a star, otherwise it's possibly the worst hotel I have stayed in.
horrible treatment from the personnel and quite far from a real italian life. more like a hotel resident area and lots of traffic on the closer streets. Lots of ruined rusty cars and garbage near the hotel and in the parking lot. Very depressing views.
The Hotel Princess is two stops away on the Rome metro from The Vatican. It is about a 15 minute walk to the closest metro station, so is probably overlooked by many travellers and other reviewers have complained about the age of the property. The hotel does have a 60's feel and look to it, and the outside is uninspiring. However, we found the rooms clean and comfortable, and at less than $50.00 Canadian per night, it is an absolute steal in a city that commands hotel rates of 250.00 Euros per night around the major tourist attractions like the Vatican and the Colosseum. At that price, you can afford to take a taxi to and from the metro is you don't want to walk, and with all the money saved can be spent on better things. Our deal included a breakfast each morning, and they do make an attempt to a North American element to the buffet by offering scrambled eggs and sausage dish which looks much like cocktail wieners. While that didn't win any accolades, the typical European breakfast of pastries, breads, meats and yogurt was satisfying enough for us before we started out for the metro each day.
Location: Far away from the city center. The guy in the reception made it sound like the metro station wasn't that far away but it took 20 minutes to reach. Building and interior: The room was very basic and the walls apparently thin as we could hear a couple next door screaming at each other all night one night. It was (mostly) clean but the AC sounded like crazy. The interior in the hotel was shabby and really needs an upgrade. Breakfast: They had this system were you depending on room and whether or not you came as a group or alone you had to sit at specific table with different colors. Noone told you unless you either actually met the (aparently) head staff of the breakfast, whom told you your color, or, as many other experienced, sat down at the wrong table and the head staff came over and not so kindly demanded you to change table. Even if you had been sitting at the wrong table for 20 minutes and was nearly finished and there were MANY empty tables you had to change in the middle of your breakfast. The buffe was good but some fresh fruits would've been nice. Staff: Mostly help full, but as written above the head staff of the breakfast buffe was mental and I was actually scared everything he walked near our table. Other: We paid for six nights with breakfast included. On the sixth night we had to check out at 3 am, and therefore missed our last paid breakfast. The lady in the reception had earlier that evening told us that, since we'd paid for the breakfast, they'd fix two goodie bags with some breakfast that we could pick up when we checked out. But when we asked the guy at the reception gave us one small bag with one croissant, a canned juice and a buisqit och told is that they weren't allowed to do this, even if I told them that I'd paid for that breakfast. Over all: My fiance insisted on a swimming pool and that's why we choose this hotel. Cheap but four stars with a pool, perfect! But I would never stay here again. Ever! Shabby hotel far away from everything and a dude at breakfast that scared the hell out of me!
Very good hotel, outside of Rome's historical centre in a quiet place away from the bustle of the city but its 30 minutes far from Rome. There is a bus stop 500 metres away that takes u to the Metro station and then 20 minutes ride to city centre. Big rooms and clean, wifi in our room was ok, big lobby area
