This was my second stay at the Principe in Milan, my first having been about 18 months ago in February of 2012. My first stay was for business, and I raved about the hotel - even considered staying there when we were in Milan for vacation this past June. I was excited to book another stay at the Principe, again for business, in September of 2013. Unfortunately I did not have the same excellent experience. Bags were not sent to my room when I was promised (several times) that they would be, leaving me with 15 minutes to clean up and change for dinner - with no suitcase. Upon finding that the blowdryer was malfunctioning the first morning, I stopped at the front desk to request a replacement. Needless to say I found the same broken blowdryer in my room the next morning. The hotel also completely blew my wakeup call on the morning of my departure - luckily I set my own alarm as a backup or I would have missed my flight. I also refuse to pay 12 euros for a cappuccino just on principle - it can't be that good. The accommodations are lovely, but be sure to follow up on anything that you request of the staff. Also the scene in the bar at night has really changed....let's just say that some business was being conducted, out in the open and obvious to all.
