“Great hotel with excellent service.”
Reviewed April 20, 2010

After travelling around and staying in many different places in Europe, the things I have come to appreciate and which this hotel satisfied were:

1) clean, quiet rooms, with lovely crisp clean bedlinen. The bed covers were clean!! The beds were comfy and DID NOT sqeak every time I rolled over.
2) very friendly staff. Infact probably the friendliest hotel staff I have come across.
3) Easy parking
4) close to train and an easy walk to the old city.
5) Breakfast was a good continental buffet with fresh breads.

I didnt have a problem with the area and felt quite safe. I am astonished that people care about what the decor is like in any hotel. As long as the place is quiet and comf and the place isnt falling apart - its fine with me. This hotel was very nice and I would happily stay here again.

I visited Udine just for the purposes of attending a concert at the Stadio Friuli. I arrived very early by train from Venice, and was apprehensive because I don't speak either German or Italian, and was traveling alone.

I could not have been any more pleased with this gem of a hotel. It was right across from the train station, and right on the bus route to the concert. The room was pristine (I mean PRISTINE), the bed ultra-comfortable, and the breakfast was very nice and very welcome. After arriving back from the concert hot, tired and feeling grubby, the shower, and the efficient room air conditioning felt like heaven!

But what really set this place apart was the wonderful woman who was running the hotel. She was very very kind, spoke excellent English (and German and Italian) and helped me with all the information I needed. The next morning she asked how the concert was, and helped me with 10 minutes of free internet, for which she refused payment. Receiving such friendly, personal service is very rare.

This was the best value of any hotel I have every stayed at in Italy, and from what I saw of the town of Udine, I would not hesitate to come back for a more extensive visit.

It's been my second time at hotel Principe in Udine, and I have to confirm that it is a very nice place: clean, confortable, very conveniently located neat the train station.

The best aspect is the staff courtesy.

On the minus side, breakfast is just OK, and rooms are quite bland (but very clean).

A nice little no-frills hotel, quite convenient for business travel

This hotel is adequate but the decor is unattractive and is outdated. The shower in our room was extremely small even for Europe. The reception area is poorly decorated and small/dingy.

The parking facilities are terrific but the area around the hotel is a bit rough because it is near the train station.

The hotel is about a 15 minute walk into the old section of Udine. I guess many people stay in Udine and take the train to Venice but we were simply exploring Udine for a day.

I would not recommend this hotel as a good price performer.

we stayed here for two nights in July 2008 in a triple room. The hotel has very clean and spacious rooms and all communciation from the hotel prior to our stay was very friendly! Breakfast was impressive with a nice selection of bread rolls, youghurts, cheese. The hotel is very close to the train station (make sure you exit from the main entrance not the back way like we did initially!) which was extremely handy for us. However, the area around the station in general is not that great and we felt it was a little bit seedy. There is a small supermarket shop nearby which is very useful, but we didn't find many nice places to eat around the hotel. In the end we tried a pizzeria about two doors down from the main entrance of the hotel which was very nice. I would stay here again if I needed to be near Udine train station!
