There are several budget hotels in the same street; the Principe is definitely one option to consider. It doesn't shine like a diamond and a redecoration would be a wise choice, but it's overall not bad and clean. Vintage furniture and overall layout make it recommendable for a short staying.

A really nice hotel situated close to the Modena Train station and walk-able distance from most of the monuments of Modena. Decent room, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast(included in my deal) was really nice. Staff was really helpful and courteous and also handed over a discount coupon for a local hotel.

I stayed at this hotel for a week. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is also close to the train and bus stations (although the hotel was not easy to find initially - for all hotel stays, I suggest printing out directions from Mapquest or Google Maps before you go). The free breakfast is decent, and... More

The carpet was very dirty and old. The beds were very old. The breakfast was too simple, lack of variety. As we were in hurry to take train in the morning, we paid the night before checked out at 7:10 am May 15, 2016. Before breakfast, we returned the room key, after breakfast, the guy at front desk told us... More

On a side trip from Venice to Civitavecchia, I needed a single room in Modena as it was the most convenient town to visit the Ferrari Museum in Maranello. The Hotel Principe was conveniently located within walking distance to public transport (train, bus and shuttle) and reasonably priced. The single room included a double bed (which was unexpected, other single... More

We stayed one night here, mainly to see Ferrari so this hotel was perfect. We walked 5 minutes to the Enzo Ferrari museum and drove about 20 minutes to the other Ferrari museum in Maranello. The hotel was also within walking distance to the old town of Modena which is beautiful and worth a visit. The breakfast was lovely and... More

As we drive across Europe 2 or 3 times per annum we can easily compare hotels. Quite a few in the "mid price" range are disappointing but we thought the Principe offered excellent VFM. Our room was a good size and well-appointed with tasteful replica Empire furniture. Unusually for Italy, there was a kettle with tea and coffee. The bathroom... More

We stayed for only one night. Location is perfect and you have free parking facilities close to the hotel which is very good when in Europe! The hotel is clean, well located, close to the Ferrari Museum and the historic area. Wifi is correct, breakfast was ok. Staff attention is polite and kind.

At one point in time, I'm sure this was a great hotel with state of the art facilities and rooms. But, it feels like it is standing still in time. What was once upscale is now completely outdated. The rooms feel old and stale (but are quite roomy in size). And the breakfast is 'okay' at best - no comparison... More
