The Principe is an extravagant indulgence of a hotel. Everything is a bit over the top from the luxurious styling of the room to the bar and restaurant areas. The service was excellent - attentive without being intrusive and not at all snobbish or stuffy. We travelled with a 6 month old baby and they couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly.
The gym and pool on the top floor is of an excellent standard too, and there are fine views to be had over the city from the outside terrace.
Unfortunately luxury on this scale apparently comes with a very hefty price tag. The room itself wasn't too expensive when compared to other hotels in this category, however pretty much everything else was eye-wateringly pricey. A cup of tea for 9 Euros, a sandwich for 30 Euros, and Breakfast was 45 Euros each! Even for a 5 star hotel this is expensive.
The hotel is about half a mile to the station and a good 15/20 minute walk to the tourist sights of Milan (the Duomo etc). Although we didn't explore too much, the area immediately surrounding the hotel didn't seem very good for restaurants - can't comment on bars because we didn't go to any!
To summarise, this is a beautiful hotel and you will be spoilt by the luxury and opulence on offer. It is ridiculously expensive but if you go for a day or two and are prepared for the expense, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
