Take the Vittorio Emmanuelle metro exit and go towards the Maggiore exit. The metro has four exits, all situated around a rectangular park. So, if you exit on the wrong road, it could take a while to find your way. When you get to the top of the stairs, head right. Cross the road and you should be in Principe Eugenio. It is a yellow Hotel sign sticking out from the side of the building. There are directions on what button to press - they will open the door for you.
The neighorhood was okay, but I definately would not want to walk around trying to find my way if I were travelling by myself. It is close to the metro, bus, and tram, so it's pretty easy getting to the main attractions. It's also about 1/2 of a mile to the Colisseum. We went out one night to take night pictures of the Colissem and were followed for about 1/2 a mile with some guy yelling at us. He stopped to hand around a staircase, staring at us, only when we arrived and walked up to the police. So again, exercise caution, especially if you are travelling alone.
The manager of the hotel also cautioned against pickpockets, as did many random locals who would just come up and warn us. We had things pretty well hidden and secure, but you know it's iffy if the hotel manager tells you not to trust a single person.
Anyways, that being said, we really liked the hotel. Our room was big, there was a/c, a safe, and mini-fridge. Wifi was free and breakfast was included.
You do have to hand in your key every time you leave, but that was never a problem for us.
As it's not a touristy part of town, there were some great restaurants - we had some good pizza, Indian food, and fabulous ice cream (it was our favorite of all the places we tried). There is also a good sized grocery store across the street.
I would stay here again - it was a reasonable price...just maybe not by myself. :)
