I stayed here in September which is still busy season. I got a great rate and it includes a superb breakfast, and free wi-fi. Location wise, it's about a 15-20 minute walk (southward) to the Spanish Steps or the Trevi Fountain. It's in a quiet neighborhood which was nice. The closest Metro station is Barberini. It's also close to the US Embassy.
The room was nicely furnished with a big bathroom. The bed was softer on one side so I slept on the other. The carpet in my room was clean but worn and should be replaced soon. Towels and sheets were excellent. Chairs were comfortable; desk was small but functional; nice size closet, safe, and a mini fridge round out the furnishing. One word of warning. I stayed in a room on Floor 1 (remember, in Europe ground floor is Floor 0) while my colleague stayed in the room 2 floors above mine. To our surprise, my colleague's room was smaller and the layout was different. We both paid the same exact price so there is variability.
My room came with a special key to activate the electricity. It seems strange but it works just fine. Also, you're supposed to leave the key at the desk when you leave the premise. It's a safety feature so someone doesn't pickpocket your keys when you're doing the tourist thing and slip into your room while you're out. I like it. All the staff I spoke to spoke English well.
Overall, I highly recommend the Hotel Londra & Cargill.
