I wouldn't quite class this as a 5 star hotel. Maybe in Rome it is classed as such, but then Rome is an expensive city to visit. That's not to say it isn't very nice indeed. The facilities are good. The room was spacious and the decor was stylish. The air conditioning works well. There are two computers with a printer that you can use down by the lifts on the ground floor. We did find the staff to be a little on the snooty snide, though again maybe that's a Rome thing. Also, bear in mind that the 'free wifi' is actually only free for 30 minutes a day.
I can't report on breakfast as we were room only. However we found an excellent cafe a few streets away (and on the way to Piazza Navona), called Il Guglielmo, where you can get two coffees, corneti and orange juice for 10 euros.
Didn't use the spa.
The roof terrace is a lovely spot to sit and have a drink, with views over to the dome of St. Peters. We paid 16 euros each for a mojito, and 10 euros for a glass of wine, so not cheap, but then more or less in line with hotel prices in Rome. We didn't try the food but the menu looked promising.
The bottom line though is the location, which is excellent. You are 5 minutes away from Campo Fiori, Piazza Navona, Castello San Angelo and the Tiber and Via Giulia is a quiet and atmospheric street.
