We stayed at Residenza Cellini. It is within walking distance of the steps. 165 euro per night with Rick Steve's discount. GREAT breakfast and rooms. GREAT staff and quiet street.

Did you try Hotel Julia? Not sure how cheap it would be now, though.

We stayed at the Hotel Fontanella Borghese in 2002 - it's a short walk to the Spanish Steps. Good luck.

TRy the Hotel Margutta on the Via Laurina. It is a short walk to the Spanish Steps and the Piazza del Populo. I don't think they answer emails, but you can Fax or call them. The two rooms on the top floor are the best, but fill up quickly. We also likedthe Hotel Parlemento which has three rooms whichshare a very nice terrace. Both hotels are very reasonable, not fancy, but clean and well located.

We stayed at the Panda. VERY close to the Spanish Steps. Great location, basic inexpensive, clean rooms. Hotel staff could be friendlier.

The Hotel Julia seems a bit out of the way. Any comments?

I didn't find Hotel Julia out of the way. I often went back to my room once or twice during the day. It seemed like a very good location to me.

I stayed years ago at the Hotel Sistina above the Spanish Steps on Via Sistina, near Via Venetto and Piazza Barberini. I thought the location was good and the hotel was fine. It doesn't look like it's quite the bargain it was when I went, though.

we stayed at Hotel San Carlo for 3 night, 2 blocks from Spanish Steps. if i remember correctly, we paid 155 E/night, this was a couple of weeks ago. Friendly staff, typical midlevel hotel in Rome (small bathrooms, mod sized rooms, free continental breakfast)

Hotel Modigliani between the Spanish Steps and the Pizza Barberini (sp?). It is very convenient to the metro, but a 5 minute walk to the Steps. Nice staff, very clean but the rooms are not spacious.
Cheers,
Jan
