“A nice alternative to a hotel”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Many reviewers have wondered what this place really is. As the owners profess, it is not a hotel, merely the first floor of an old house converted into 5 bedrooms. In its own unique manner, Italian law allows for this practice. There are literally dozens of such business ventures in the area. Check out which one you want. There's cheap and there's more expensive. There's old and there's modern. With soaring real estate prices, families are leaving the centre of town, and this is a great little investment scheme. Rent or buy a flat above the swanky shops in the area, add a bit of renovation work, a few old pieces of furniture from a jumble sale, and voila: a 'home away from home'. Crossing Condotti happens to be pretty tastefully done up: The entrance is drab and dirty, it's the old building's communal space. Beyond that initial impression however, most of the basics are there, and a little more: the rooms are nice (although most are rather small) and very clean, sound-proofing is excellent, the beds are very comfortable, and the person at the reception is extremely friendly, helpful and nice. There's a common kitchenette with a coffee machine and a small fridge full of water, beer and coke but no more. Don't think you'll cook in your 'home away from home', you won't even be able to prepare a proper breakfast. And since there is nothing more than I described - no bar, no restaurant, no room service, no concierge, no vallet - your options are limited. This is a fine alternative to a real hotel if it responds to your limited needs and you'd rather avoid Rome's pretty poor hotel offer. There really is nothing wrong with the place except the pretence that it is anything more than it is.

Just a note to let everyone know, how wonderful the experience was with the Crossing Condotti team. Staff is gratious and professional and are there to assist you with practically any request. The rooms are top notch, clean, stylish and newly renovated. I have been staying with them for the last 5 years and continue to return as the quality has never diminished.
I would highly recommend this boutique hotel to anyone who is yearning for a true Roman Holiday.

Francesca was a dream from beginning to end.
We arrived via the three hour train journey and then the metro and were hot and sweaty so he sat us down, have us water and told us to sit as long as we wished.
He gave us a personalised walking tour to do given that we only had two days in Rome. His restaurant recommendations are great! We wanted to go where 'average Romans' go and he sent us to this great little pasta shop and warned us about their grumpiness! Just as we wanted.
The rooms are beautiful and quiet. The toiletries are divine and the free food and drink in the shared kitchenette was fabulous to grab water and espresso on the way out or a cold beer on our return from a hard days sightseeing.
It's fantastically located, just a few minutes walk from the Spanish Steps. You can walk to everything you need really.
Nothing is too much trouble, prebooking the Colesseum and letting other visitors use their computer for example, the service was exceptional.
I'll be recommending it to friends!

Very charming boutique hotel, with a very caring service. We enjoyed it in every way. The rooms are very charming and clean. You are in a small villa with a beating heart... in a few words you will feel like a roman with the help of the receptionist who is very caring and will find every possible way for you to enjoy Roma.

We returned to "Crossing" after an absence of a couple of years. Nothing had changed - it was still had the 'home-away-from-home' friendly vibe. Andrea ensured he was at the property to greet us even though our plane arrived very early one morning. The rooms were spotless and as usual, very comfortable. Endless supplies of water and soft drinks as well as tea making facilities ensured we were never thirsty. Andrea and Francesco also gave us a lot of tips on where to eat or have a pre-dinner drink. Happy to recommend and we will most probably return!

Probably the best location in Rome. Being there is like being at home, in a luxury, but not pretentious, house. Reception is kind, frigobar is included as the Rome atmosphere.
The suite is magical if only it had real window.
For dreaming stay it is the right place.

This gorgeous five room hotel is charming in every way. It's beautifully decorated and appointed, it's very comfortable and it's incredibly quiet. (You can open up your room to the bussle on the street or you can choose to block it out completely. The beautifully-made, double-glazed windows have very effective acoustic seals as does your room door. So noise just doesn't get in. We slept like babes in our little home in Rome.

But while the hotel itself and its location are great, what is virtually unbeatable is the service. Francesco and Andrea are there at your service, giving a local's insight into everything. They listened carefully to fully-understand our particular desires (which usually revolved around eating and drinking) - and once they understood our brief they discussed options, booked us, organised taxis and sent us off to some rippers. No standard, printed list of favourite restaurants here - because (thankfully) everybody's different. They hit the mark on every occasion.

There was always something Francesco and Andrea were helping us with. We really appreciated them. Other guests commandeered the poor boys for hours on end; having obviously done no homework of their own and expecting help with things that were way beyond the call of duty; like rearranging flights and forward accommodation - and like how to read a map! (Alot of people should really just stay at home!) I'd have wanted to kill some guests, but Francesco and Andrea managed everything with charm and grace.

Ours was a wonderful hotel experience all round - capped off with first class, very-personalised service.
