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.
