84 Largo Fontanella Borghese
Tel: 39 06 6880 9504's insider take:

Fontanella Borghese is a striking exception to Rome's slew of disappointing mid-price options. A welcoming 29-room gem in a palazzo that once belonged to the Borghese family, the hotel is just a sashay away from the Via Condotti fashion strip. The sober antique decor is offset by cut flowers, potted plants, and cheerful fabrics. A recent expansion into the apartment next door has given the hotel a decent-sized breakfast room and freed up a charming little lounge. Factor in the friendly and knowledgeable service, and you begin to understand why this place is usually full both in and out of season. The Fontanella's sister hotel, Due Torri, located nearby, is a good alternative.
