I would agree with much of the high marks given to this hotel. The staff spoke excellent English and was most kind and helpful in giving directions and recommendations, the morning breakfast was more than adequate and gave me the opportunity to enjoy the best cappuccino I have had, and the infrastructure was clean, well maintained and showed no signs of age or deterioration. Although our room was small, it met our needs, but the "extra" was the friendly staff that made us feel at home. Although this was not the most luxurious accommodation we were to experience (that cost 3-4 times as much), I would rate the hotel 5 star based on value, service, and location.
Some plusses/hints others might not have mentioned:
1. Although close to Trevi and the Spanish Steps, the fountains at both places were closed when we were there in late July.
2. We had considered many hotels before booking here. After arriving in Rome we saw that many them - especially those that advertised themselves as being close to Trevi and the Steps - were too close to these attractions and had noisy tourist groups milling about outside. The Borgognoni is on a side street leading to these attractions, and although the tour groups passed outside - it was not a place in which they would congregate. Big plus.
3. When you arrive you get a key that keeps the electricity turned on in your room. Ask for two keys, so when you leave and take key with you, you can leave electric on still have your iPad charging
