Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The staff, food and facilities were amazing. The staff were very helpful and friendly and allowed us to just do our thing. Being from New Zealand, the breakfast was a bit overwhelming in the best possible way. There was a great selection of local food to try just for breakfast. Only misses out on a five because the rooms were small and cramped for two people.

Good hotel , Decent location, very quiet side of Rome, Probably like a 20-30 min walk from the main center city and not too far from bus stops. Beds were good , Rooms are very small. Staff was realtively friendly, small and for the most part rooms were clean. Breakfast is okay but without variety and small Area for restaurant . I would rate the hotel as okay but nothing special.

Good location for the hotel if you don’t mind a walk into Rome. Room was nice but sound proofing awful, despite it saying on the site I booked that there was sound proofing and one of the reasons I picked it. Breakfast a bit basic but ok. No drink making facilities in the room which is not great if you want a drink before you get dressed etc. Staff could barely manage a smile unfortunately. Also didn’t seem to want to prepare drinks for us at ‘the bar’. We were ignored and then when drinks were served it made us feel like an inconvenience. I wouldn’t stay here again.

On the positive side, the hotel had comfortable beds that meant we had a good night's sleep. Additionally, the ambiance was peaceful and quiet, breakfast was basic but ok. However, the standout feature of this hotel was undoubtedly its downfall - the staff. Unfortunately, they appeared disinterested and displayed a lack of courtesy. When faced with issues, their attitude was dismissive and bordering on rude. This detracted significantly from the overall enjoyment of the stay.

This hotel was quite a nice stay, we had a room with a nice shower and it was very pretty with comfortable beds. Only issues with the room was no power points near the bed to charge devices overnight, and the room was slightly smaller than necessary for two suitcases, but other than that it was fantastic and the staff were very nice during check in/out, aside from the confusion as I had paid for minibar drinks but they had tried to charge me for those drinks during checkout, this was resolved extremely quickly and easily though and did not delay us in the slightest. Will stay again at this hotel as it was very nice!

So upon reading the reviews the hotel is rated 4 star so thought not a bad price £169 for 2 nights we booked 2 rooms as we came out with friends from the airport fco to hotel it was a fixed €60 fee the hotel looked grand on the outside very roman style however the rooms were a let down!!! Literally opened the door and the bed is there small room bathroom was ok size shower was small water pressure were fine and plenty of hot water the hand towel in the bathroom is literally a napkin!! And the towels were ok the room was very warm but we opened up the windows and it was cool enough Now the reviews on breakfast ppl stating lovely breakfast!!! It was pitiful terrible!! Cups too small literally a buffet breakfast the hot food consist of scrambled eggs and bacon and was stone cold and vile the boiled eggs weren’t even cooked properly (ppl must have gone to worse hotels thinking this was brilliant) Small room and certainly not what to expect the only thing was bread cold meats which was ok The hotel itself is fairly central to the colosseum roughly 20-25 min walk easy enough to get too this hotel does not Warrant a 4* it’s more of a 2*

I selected this hotel because the historic ambiance appealed to me, the location was great, the price was reasonable, and breakfast was included! I also thought the name was special. The hotel is tucked away on a quiet street near the Borghese park. Yes, we did enjoy our Rome visit in the pretty boutique Hotel Principessa Isabella. All of the staff were very cordial and helpful. Our upper floor room had lovely decor and was quite comfortable. There is an elevator which made carrying large bags very easy. I was very satisfied with the level of security and privacy, and all included amenities. The breakfast room is near the lobby, and it was convenient to eat quickly in the morning and choose from a wide assortment of items. There is also a little bar, but the lobby area is a bit tiny for socializing. This is a very good choice for a mid-range hotel in Rome, although the location does require a bit more walking to reach some of the most popular Rome sights.

Air conditioning is very poor and basically doesn’t work. Really consider staying here in summer as their is just a basic controller in the room that allows you to operate speed but no temperature control so the rooms are stifling at night. Hotel staff were non responsive to queries to resolve.
