A couple of blocks from the Spanish Steps, Crossing Condotti is a discreet nine-room boutique in a restored 18th-century townhouse. The apartment-style rooms feature parquet floors and beam ceilings and are decorated with antiques from the owner’s private collection. Handy extras like Nespresso machines, kitchenettes and fridges with free soft drinks make for a homey stay. Splurge on a Deluxe Room for a walk-in shower with funky lights, and the use of an iPad. There’s no restaurant or breakfast room at the property, but the heart-of-the-action location puts you within striking distance of innumerable cafés and restaurants, not to mention designer heavyweights including Prada, Bulgari and Gucci.
In the Area
There’s hardly anything that isn’t in the area, so centrally located is the property. Most notably, you’ll have the eponymous piazza and adjacent Spanish Steps as your front yard, and access to the high-end shopping mecca that is Via Condotti, as well as the more local boutiques of Via del Babuino and Via Margutta. Just past those is the Piazza del Popolo and the Villa Borghese, the largest park in central Rome, which also houses several museums. The Pantheon is a 10- to 15-minute walk away, with the Piazza Navona a bit farther on. And though they’re not so far that you couldn’t walk to them — and Rome really is a walking city — the Vatican, the Colosseum and the Forum can be reached in no time via the metro.
How to Get There
We had our own key to the front door and it felt like coming home each evening. Our room, Carrozze, had beautiful wood ceiling and modern bathroom. It overlooked the street below and yet was very quiet. We walked everywhere - the Spanish steps are nearby, Borghese Gardens, Pantheon, Vatican, all walkable distances.
Note that the reception area is located up a flight of stairs. This was not a problem as someone was available to help with the luggage. The sitting area is cozy, but small, just as shown in the hotel photos. If you want breakfast, best to make arrangements ahead of time - pickup croissants to have with your morning cappuchino as breakfast is not served. There is a cappuchino & nepresso machine in the kitchen area for guests to use as well as a fridge filled with water & soft drinks + trays of sweets and cookies.
I must recognize the outstanding service we experienced from Davide! I cannot imagine a better concierge. He sent us to the best restaurants - whether lunch or dinner, casual or formal, no matter what part of the city we were going to be in - every recommendation was perfect. He answered our many questions and guided us to our destinations. It was Davide who discovered that I had misread our flight info and were at risk to miss our flight. He arranged a car for us within minutes! He greatly contributed to our fun, stress-free time in Rome.
I recommend having the hotel arrange transport from the airport to the hotel as it is located on a small side street and would have been difficult to drive to on our own.
For a wonderful stay close to everything - Crossing Condotti was wonderful.
My sister-in-law and I were in Italy for 8 days recently. We stayed at Crossing Condotti the entire time and are happy we did. The location of this boutique hotel suited our wanderlust perfectly, being situated in the Spanish Steps area.
Francesco and Davide are so polite, helpful and were eager to make our first trip to Italy a memorable and comfortable one. The housekeeping team made sure our room was neat & tidy every night we came home, exhausted. We were happy with the beverages provided in the communal kitchen and did not miss breakfast or room service as we were out the crack of dawn every day and came home to the hotel to nosh on olives, cheese & meat bought during our day. A particular highlight of the hotel is being able to see opera being performed on the street below our room.
Thank you so much for Davide and the team at Crossing Condotti for a fabulous stay.
Even before we got there we were sent a really useful list of restaurants which we booked so we had lots planned in advance making the trip much less stressful. We arrived late (11pm) and a member of staff very kindly came to meet us and gave us some useful information. The location is excellent and decor beautifully done. The free well stocked fridge is a lovely touch. We had a fantastic stay and would highly recommend this hotel.
Crossing Condotti reminded me more of an apartment building with efficiencies, with each unit being rented out for travelers. We had the Jr. suite. We have never stayed at anything outside traditional hotels so this was a different experience for us, and we would 100% stay here again. The staff is exceptional, but only there until 6:00 pm. You are given a key to the outside door for entry. The location was perfect. The unit was amazing. There was actually another seating area with a second TV. We were gone so much we didn't use it, but thought it was a nice option. Also, for those with husband's that need to watch TV at least part of the trip, they had SKY Tv, which allowed you to select English. Breakfast is NOT included. In another review, I counted that against Una Maison Milano. I was aware that breakfast was not included, but was happy with the set up Crossing Condotti had. Numerous cold beverages are included, there is a Nepresso machine in the room, nice tea selection, and a few snacks. There is an ice machine in the office area, and they give you a key in case you want ice after hours. The staff is super hospitable.
My wife and I started our honeymoon staying at Crossing Condotti in Rome and the incredible experience we had in this hotel will stay with us for the rest of our lives. The location of the hotel was perfect, right by the Spanish Steps. We felt as if we had our own private apartment in Rome. The hotel was clean and the kitchen was always stocked with water, beer, and espresso free of charge to the guests. However, the most memorable part of our stay was definitely the service provided by Francesco and Davide. I have never felt so welcomed while staying at a hotel in my life. My wife and I hope to one day return to Rome, and if we do we will be staying at Crossing Condotti.
