“Weekend Visit To Rome ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I have just returned from a three night stay at Prime Principle Hotel and have to say this hotel was outstanding.
As it was the first time both my partner and I were visiting Rome, the staff were extremely helpful in assisting us in pre booking our visits to the Vatican and Colloseum.
We stayed in the Junior Suite located in the gardens, and although there is a slight smell from the damp, assume due to the time of year, a fan is continually on to help ventilate the room. The room itself was great; spacious and clean with a a king size bed and all the commodities.

The hotel is only a short walk to the Metro station, Bologna, providing easy access to all the main stations and attractions. There is a lovely restaurant around the corner, Momart, which serves traditional italian food at a great price.
Overall the hotel was perfect for what we required during our stay. The staff are friendly, helpful and polite with a great standard of English. The grounds are beautiful and the location is perfect for a romantic getaway! I'll be back again!!

Stayed December 2014, traveled as a couple

The hotel Is really nice, built in a beautiful villa, rooms are cozy and tidy, the hotel is surrounded by a garden where you can have a rest. On the roof there is a big terrace where you can take a look all around the area. Complimentary breakfast is fantastic and is generally served in the veranda

What a find! This jewel of a hotel had everything we were looking for. It is set in a lovely, tranquil location, a The hotel itself is lovely and clean with very comfortable room and bathroom. Nothing was too much for the excellent, friendly staff. Less than 10 minute walk to the nearest Metro station or a bus stop nearby. Lovely gardens, great breakfast. Would definitely recommend!

My wife and I stayed at this excellent hotel for a short break and it was a perfect choice. We learned that it was once the home of an eminent surgeon and it retains that private, characterful feel. The foyer is very elegant and our room was spacious and comfortable. All the staff were friendly, knowledgeable and keen to help in any way they could to enhance our experience. If you're happy not to be right in the city centre this is a great choice ... and you can still be there quickly via a 10-min walk and 20 mins on the Metro.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The location is perfect. Away from all the rush from the city.
A ten min. walk to the nearest metro station and from there the posibilities are endless. Great staff.

Ok where do I start, this hotel was excellent, the first impression when you first see it is tranquil private and well presented, the foyer represents the Roman style of a very top quality hotel, the staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing too much for them.
the location was very nice indeed, if you don't mind walking the main road NOMENTANA which is right out of the gates then left at the top of the road, takes you straight into the city in about 30 minutes and the walk is very pleasant with a few interesting places to look at on the way, or the tube is 5 minutes walk we used BALOGNA, and a ticket only costs 1 euro 50 which will last for 100 minutes it says only one trip on the tube but you can change trains at TERMINI without going through the ticket gates again. or take a bus or tram. we never used the all day tickets as you can walk to most attractions if you plan your day well.
We had the family room which is in a separate building in the grounds of the hotel which was perfect so we didn't have to worry about heavy footed children and disturbing other guests, cant say what the rooms in the hotel were like but if they are like ours you wont be disappointed, the room was well presented and clean, it had a spacious bathroom with shower and jacuzzi bath, two wash basins, and the bed was huge, there was also a walk in wardrobe, and free WIFI
the breakfast was very nice with a good selection, although if you go in the colder months the breakfast room can be a little cold, but the views of the garden make it very pleasant indeed.
this is one of those hotels where you would never look for an alternative, we will return next time, thanks to all the staff for a very nice time.
