What a gorgeous boutique hotel right near the Trevi fountain! We had the best staff who sent up a gift of a bottle of prosecco and chocolates for two after I mentioned that we are in Italy for my friend's 50th birthday. Our room was small by typical American standards but the sitting room with a pullout bed and the lovely little private terrace certainly made us ignore size. It was a nicely appointed room with crisp linens and modern fixtures throughout. The staff was fantastic! Their bell hop was terribly charming, funny and energetic. The front desk manager was also an excellent concierge and gave us a great lesson on how to navigate the Termini train station. He even called his friend to help us book a train from Termini to Venice after hours. Lovely place all around!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel dei Borgognoni Rome
This is your best bet for location! The hotel is about three to four blocks from the bottom of the Spanish Steps, you can get there by Metro and walk to the hotel in two minutes or less. Trevi, Pantheon and Navona are very close, as well as shopping Via Condotti. We were in this hotel 3/22-23/04.
Our room was facing the street which was extremely loud, but if you shut the window its pretty quiet for sleeping. We left it open for some cool air. We had a fairly small room, to be expected. We paid 187 euros a night on a special rate, but I wouldn't spend more than that for this hotel. If you want location, this is your hotel - if you're looking for something more spacious and quiet, this is not for you. We didn't care much for the staff, they were pretty stuffy and rude about insisting of keeping our passports with them and about any requests.
Quiet, Comfortable, Convenient
Happily spent six nights here in mid-December, 2003.Our room overlooked a quiet inner courtyard and had an ample, pristine bathroom. Staff is attentive; breakfast is fine; location is superb in the centro storico of Rome without the noise. We renegoitated original booking to corporate rate without problem. A very good trattoria nearby is "Al Caminetto" on Via Nazarenno. Have a wonderful trip.

Stayed five nights late November 2003. Somewhat expensive, but overall worth it. Location is great. Rooms were exactly as reserved (requested terrace rooms seen on web photos). Staff helpful and polite. Quiet, nicely decorated rooms. Breakfast fine, but nothing special. There is a very handy supermarket almost next door. Room service was very good. We would definately stay there again.
Ideal for a stopover
Stayed here in November 03 after reading other reviews from this site.
Quite an expensive hotel, but the location is perfect. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were fine, and most importantly quiet.
The breakfast was a little dissapointing considering the price, but otherwise nothing to grumble about.
Great location, quiet hotel.
We stayed here for three days in November. It is a great location---two blocks from the Trevi Fountain and about five minutes from the Spanish Steps and the Pantheon. The hotel fronts on a one-way alley-sized street and is very quiet, but your taxi probably won't get to the front door unless the driver can follow the maze of very small streets. We had no complaints about the room or the breakfast that is included, but no raves either (we also stayed at the Nazionale and I preferred it, mainly for the larger room and the view of St. Peter's). If you are looking for a good central location, stay here.
Great Hotel, great Location
This was our first trip to Rome. Staying at the Hotel Borgognoni was perfect. The location of the hotel was wonderful, between the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. Easy walk to museums, shopping and wonderful restaurants. The room was quite large. We were expecting much smaller. The bathroom was large and very clean and nice. The included breakfast was delicious. They also had a bar. The staff was extremely helpful and the dinner recommendations and reservations were superb. We will DEFINITELY stay there when we return to ROME.
Excellent hotel & location
Stayed here in August 2003 after reading the other good review on TripAdvisor. Arrived at 8am after a very long flight from Singapore and the hotel were kind enough to check us in early. The room was smallish, but big by Rome standards. Very comfortable and clean, with a good bathroom. The airconditioning was a nice touch being there in the middle of a heat wave.The location is fantastic within easy walking distance of all major attractions. There are also a couple of nice restaurants on the street with good prices. There is also a small supermarket next door to the hotel, making it pretty easy to stock up on supplies.Staff were polite and spoke very good English and were always happy to help with directions.We will certainly be staying here on any visit to Rome A+++
A great base
I stayed at this hotel with two other family members in April 2003. We requested of the hotel that they arrange a taxi to pick us up from the airport, and were met on arrival by a driver affiliated to the hotel.
He spoke excellent english and gave us an informative guide to the city and it's history on the way to the hotel (and a test on our way back!).
The hotel is perfectly located, in a quiet street within walking distance of all the major attractions. Our triple room, whilst not huge, was nevertheless beautifully decorated and comfortable and the bathroom was spacious and attractive. The staff were friendly and, again, spoke very good english. Both the housekeeping and room service were very good. Rome is a wonderful city, and this hotel was a great base from which to explore it. I would certainly recommend it.

... from being attacked by some animal trying to get out of the arena.
As we stand there looking at this massive 2000 year old structure, I begin to imagine large and unruly crowds charged with wine and the sheer delight of watching slaves, prisoners of war and criminals forced to fight men or wild animals to the death. The Colosseum brings an incredible finale to a day that has been exhilarating and exhausting. Welcome to the Forum.
I am so sorry that my updates are not more frequent. I have been a little busy having the time of my life! It feels like there is not enough time in the day. This has been such a marvelous trip already. I honestly feel like if I came home tomorrow, I would feel like this was a complete trip! We have been incredibly busy. The itinerary was so well constructed, but it is also ...
... to take away! Actually they fear people scraping off the metal, so it remains locked away. Finally she took us around the back to look down on the old Roman Forum. It was the centre of the ancient city of Rome and stunning to see. So many stories, so many lives. Amazing. She pointed out where Sophia Loren used to live before she had to leave Rome for non payment of taxes too. Quite an eclectic tour. My tiredness defeats me. I will need to catch up a few things tomorrow. Enjoy the ...
... each panel, wall, ceiling. The whole room from floor to ceiling is painted depicting many stories. The museum itself contains a lot of marble statues from ancient times, the buildings themselves have great ornate ceilings and walls, and also maps made from tapestries, absolutely massive hanging from both sides of a corridor as you walked through. It is hard to put into words such grandeur and beauty, you will just have to come and experience this ...
