Princeps Boutique Hotel
in the center of Rome
In 2014, to coincide with the two thousandth anniversary of the death of the Roman emperor, Octavian Augustus, the building was completely renovated, giving new light to the Esquilino Square, in the center of which is an obelisk erected with the same name. The monolith - a Roman copy of an Egyptian obelisk, made at the time of Domitian – was found at the beginning of the sixteenth century, at the entrance of the Mausoleum of Augustus and was put in place in 1587 by Pope Sixtus V, right in front of the apse of Santa Maria Maggiore.
The Princeps hotel, therefore, attributes its name to Augustus, the Roman Princeps par excellence; "mayor" of Rome and leader who made long-lasting peace reign in the history of the Roman Empire.

Fantastic hotel, extremely clean and good location. Breakfast is lovely with an excellent choice and it is good to get free soft drinks and hot drinks. Tricky to find initially as the door is hidden within a door! The hotel is on floor 4 of a huge building. Very handy for the train station and a down hill walk to the main tourist areaMrsjb2010Tripadvisor.com
