Location is excellent as based right in the centre of Rome. Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful - rooms are clean. Avoid booking small bedrooms as they lack natural light and are chlostrophobic.
the hotel decor is very traditional steeped in history and would highly recommend it, but would also highlight that this is not a modern looking hotel and subsequently, overall is a bit dark due to its decor and lack of windows that let in natural light.
The hotel is located in a tiny lane. When the taxi stopped in front, I wasn't sure if we made the right decision to stay there since we are more used to staying at 4-5 star hotels. We stayed in a junior suite. It was large with a separate the bedroom separate from the living area. Very comfortable. The only problems we had were that the TV's didn't work well and the shower is a little difficult to figure out but the shower power is strong. The service is wonderful. The front desk will help you to make restaurant reservations or whatever else that you may need. About a 10-15 minute walk to the Spanish Steps. Don't go to the rooftop Japanese Restaurant. It was fake Japanese Food. I will stay at this hotel again.
I was hesitant after reading the reviews about staying at this hotel but it wasn't that bad.The staff was friendly and greeted me every time I stepped out or came back into the hotel. The location is the best, there is so much to do that I was rarely in my hotel room besides sleeping.
Some tips - I would stay at the fourth floor, the rooms are really nice and clean. Many of the wedding guests including myself stayed on that floor. Also, if you book your room not including a breakfast buffet, it's expensive to eat at the breakfast buffet. But their breakfast buffer is not good, there are so many cafes near the hotel that offer better espresso and croissant at a cheaper rate.
This hotel was a great place to come to relax after a long day of sightseeing. It was extremely hot while we were in Rome and it was a relief to get to the hotel as the air-conditioning was exceptional.
Awesome location, just a few blocks from Spanish Steps and easy walk to Pantheon and lots of other sites. Staff was terrific. Very good breakfast with great coffee. Need a compass to find your room because of the multiple additions to the building(s), but it's very clean and quite roomy for a downtown location.

Very well placed hotel with easy access to the Spanish Steps but in a quiet alley.
Room was disappointingly small but well cleaned daily by staff.
Front desk very helpful and friendly.
Breakfast decent with amazing fruit selection.

This is a beautiful hotel run by equally beautiful people. The room was stunning and in keeping with the era of its origins. We were welcomed so nicely. The bar is classy and the barman can make fabulous cocktails. I know, I tried a few! The breakfast buffet covers all tastes and is plentiful and fresh. We had breakfast every morning in the cool courtyard. We also sat and viewed Rome from the rooftop terrace. The Locarno is well placed to see all the sights. About 5 mins walk to the Spanish Steps and a few minutes more to the Trevi Fountain . When we went it was 38° during the day but the rooms are airconditioned so we slept well as its in a quiet road. Can't recommend this highly enough. We will be returning.
Rome's largest, most spectacular fountain, the Trevi Fountain is a baroque extravaganza, its ancient sea gods and gushing water dominating a tiny piazza. Immortalised in Fellini's film, 'La Dolce Vita', this is the place to toss your coins to ensure your return to the Eternal City. The three streets radiating from the piazza lead to the historical centre and sights of the Quirinale – one of the original seven hills.
