The Princeps Rome Monti is an elegant boutique hotel with 20 rooms, occupying the fourth floor of one of the oldest and most impressive 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 Aragona 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 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.
Inside, the blend of minimalist design and furnishings and classical tradition, provides a harmonious balance between old and new: a unique, timeless space in a 3 star hotel in Rome.
