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
This is a fabulous property approximately 2 minutes from the Spanish Steps. The staff were excellent, especially Andrea & Franciscus ( concierge). The rooms are spacious and excellently appointed. We spent 4 nights in the Junior Suite and another 3 nights in a Superior Room. We preferred the Superior Room.The hotel position was so close to restaurants, bars, shops, Trevi Fountain and an easy walk to most attractions such as the coliseum. The only criticism is there is no lift, however, both Andrea & Franciscus are most helpful in carrying your luggage. A place to consider. Alison & Terry ( Aussie's)
To start with - we are planning a longer stay in Rome next year because of our experience at this property. This property will exceed your expectations. Location. Rooms. Service. We stayed in several different places during this vacation in Italy. From outside of Siena, to Venice, to Lake Como, to Milan, and we stayed in very nice places. Villas, Four Seasons, etc... None compared to Crossing Condotti. The rooms were very comfortable and beautifully decorated with every little detail considered for our stay. The service was the best I've ever experienced, and I travel for a living. They took care of every request from arranging for a guide, taxis, and dinner reservations. They made our stay a very pleasurable experience in every way. We had the misfortune to lock ourselves out of our room at 8:30 on a Saturday night and they were there within minutes to save the evening. My sincere thank you to the owner and to Francesco. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We are already looking forward to returning next year for an extended stay.
This bijou of this hotel was absolutely fantastic for our stay in Rome- perfectly located in the heart of the city, close to all the charming cafes, restaurants, boutiques and the magnificent Roman sites. The Crossing team were so helpful, warm and, kind. The room, designed in a very smart and efficient way, had everything we needed, from comfortable beds, to coffee and tea, and not to forget- the wonderful rain shower with mood lights. We felt very much at home, while being spoiled with fantastic hospitality. This will definitely be our new go to spot in Rome.
