Princeps Boutique Hotel

Rated 9.2 in 1665 reviews. 20 rooms.


The Princeps is an elegant boutique hotel occupying the 4th floor of one of the oldest and most elegant palaces of the Monti district, the first district in the heart of historic Rome.
The building, whose foundations were included in the large park of the Domus Aurea of Nero, belonged to the noble Italian family of Aragon from the end of 1800.
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 Sta 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.
