“Great location and staff”
Reviewed 20 December 2012

What do you expect from a very cheap hotel centrally located in the capital city of Italy. Took some finding on the ground but we persisted. They are in the process of upgrading the rooms and we had one of the rooms that had not been done. Basic but quite large. Clean with a comfortable bed. Decor and furniture was shabby but we only sleep in the room so it isn't too important to us . Would return. Helpful staff recommended an excellent restaurant, "The antica Boheme" round the corner.

I was staying in the hotel with my boyfriend for a week and the one importent thing you must know is that the location of the hotel if searched in google maps is wrong!! The address is Via Principe Amedeo 2, but google shows it at around 100...

The best thing about the hotel is the location, walking distance from everywhere, five minutes from the Termini train station and metro.

The hotel is simple and clean, we recommend that you ask for an interior room, not one facing the road because though the windows are sound proof, if you don't shut them at night, it gets very loud at around 6 a.m.
The staff is warm and welcoming.
You should know that if you return after 11 p.m. they look the door to the hotel and you need buzz them and then they open it for you.
Overall it's a very good value, a great place to crash after a long day in Rome,

The hotel is very central and very close to termini train station.very good value for money. Rooms are spacious and very very clean which is very important to me. Very safe. Carmen, the director of the hotel, is very nice and very helpful. I really don't understand what people expect considered the money you spend and the location you get. this hotel is absolutely great. You spend all your time visiting the city in the end of the day!!!

We're two sisters backpacking through Italy, so it was a non booked trip as we decided daily where to stay.

While in Rome, we were pleased with Principe Amedeo's hotel the moment we got in to see the conditions. We were extremely well received with a smile and professionalism from the manager, the way all was 100% clean and mainly the honesty we were presented with.

That's the kind of hotel hiper well located, 5 min. walking from the station and yet central (we walked everyewhere, but for those non-walkers, public transport won't be a problem, easy and with plenty of offer).

Here, noting is fake hidden: I mean you pay fairly for what is presented to you. Plus: it's a familiar bussiness where everyone is extremely welcoming, nice and are there to help you, do their best for your needs and to ensure a pleasant stay. They gave us the best image of all Rome. It was the place where we were best received.

We stayed one night, the room was perfect for us, very clean, air conditioned, the bathroom was suitable in size and conditions, big enought for what a correct bathroom is suposed to be, nothing to point out about the bed, sheets or towels.

Thought it is ground floor, we had no problem with street noise as windows are double glassed.

But most of all: the people. That is the highlight of this hotel. Hotels are not about decoration or nice photos, fake smiles or theatreal compliments, but it's all about you get to feel comfortable and safe to get a good night sleep. People were respectfull and always received us with nice manners, a warming word and a smile. That is what you sometimes don't get from many 5 stars' hotels.

Second, we must say it was extremely precious for us to ask the manager something we needed for our camera and receive a positive and nice answer and having the chance to leave our luggage after check out until the hour of our train.

Finally, the pride and care people show in this hotel are the proof (if further were necessary!) of honesty and that they will do their best and always try to improve. The family deserves our "thank you" and all the best for their bussiness.

That's at least the image we got from a nice, safe, honest, correct hotel and a good experience with no trouble or negative episodes, that was exactly what we were looking for.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for our weekend trip, here are the pros and cons:

Pros:
- Hotel is easy to get to from Termini station
- Close to number of sights (ie. S. Maria Maggiore; Piazza Republica are about 5 - 10min walk away) however Colossum is bit further (bout 25 - 30min walking)
- Close to Metro and vast number of bus (being close to the Termini stn)
- Room is fairly clean
- Bathroom is fairly clean although bit small for me (and I'm a small person 5'8)

Cons:
- Hotel furniture is outdated
- Due to family business nature, you feel sense of disturbing the host if you come back too late in the evening (as you have to ring the door bell and they will come open the door for you)
- If you happen to be in the room close to the street, it can get noisy (as this is Rome, italians talk very passionately and loud!!!)

However I like to reiterate that this is a 2 star hotel, so you cannot expect a 5 star room decorations.

Overall, I'm happy with this hotel as it serves its purpose, but as it was last minute booking from my side...I would say I have overpaid for my stay... I think the fair rate will be EUR 70 - 80 per night.

And yes I would return to this hotel in future.

Room Tip: Room 11 is very noisy as it is close to the street...but if you are heavy sleeper...then it's al...

The family that runs the place is very nice. However, the room was extremely old looking and the furniture was very outdated. Also the bathroom wasn't great either. The location of the hotel was great as it was very close to Termini, but the hotel is nothing special at all. It definitely costs way to much money for not enough accommodation. It sort of felt like I was staying at some old family house.

Last week we went for a city trip to Rome with our school. We were with 11 teenagers and 2 teachers, and we were looking for a nice and not to expensive hotel. Hotel Principe Amadeo had the things we needed. The rooms were a bit basic, but also very cosy and comfortabel. As a group of teenagers, we were really pleased that the Wifi was free at the hotel. The location of the hotel is also really convenient, because it was surrounded by a lot of restaurants. I really enjoyed my stay here and it certainly is a recommendation!
