The Chilled Aristo

Rome's ode to La Dolce Vita, Crossing Condotti is a gorgeous pick-n-mix of effortless style, lived-in luxury and glam dashes of heritage

Intro

Crossing Corso Apartment is housed within an aged Italian palazzo and has adopted the nobility of design, just off Via dei Condotti and close to the famous landmark Piazza di Spagna - aka the Spanish Steps. Fringed in the once exotic artistic quarters of the city – the original stomping grounds for the aristocratic elite who flocked here as Grand Tourists centuries ago, Crossing Condotti is surrounded by the antiquities of an empire and the bohemian lustre of Rome’s present-day couture labels. 

Crossing Condotti Apartment offers a cool address decorated in an eclectic style of heirloom antiques and cleverly picked designer pieces. Decorated in bold colours, the theme is global nomad returns home and the owners have curated an exotic line up of artworks and furnishings, both modern and salvaged relicts. Spacious, lofty in style, this self-catering holiday rental in the heartlands of historic Roma make you feel like a resident rather than a guest. Crossing Condotti Apartment comes with a very switched-on, hip concierge desk and daytime hosts who love to share their hot insider tips as well as the original go-to places in Rome. Perfect for those indie travellers who covet absolute discretion and quiet understated hotel-style luxury in the heartlands of fashion, centuries-old culture and design.

Foodie

The apartment comes with a fully equipped kitchen, perfect for the light snacks. With some of the best eateries, bars, espresso pit-stops and fine-dining restaurants as your neighbours, when creating the Crossing Condotti it was thought better to feel more integrated into the hood and what better way to do this than starting your day as the Romans do: at the local espresso bar.

Via Condotti is the homeland to designer couture brands that populate the cobbled streets and a 10-minute stroll to the famous Trevi Fountain

Location

With the Spanish Steps as your neighbour, Crossing Condotti is right in the heart of the dapper northern part of central Rome – often referred to as the Tridente district (Piazza del Popolo – Via di Ripetta, Via del Corso and Via del Babuino), with Via Condotti being the homeland to designer couture brands that populate the cobbled streets. It is also a 10-minute stroll to the famous Trevi Fountain.

Owners

Proud owners Carlotta Botta and Alfio Puglisi are the creative duo behind Crossing Condotti in Rome’s cultural heartlands. A marriage of a former lawyer and hotelier from Sicily, the couple set about a new adventure in life and for Carlotta a shift from the legal world into hotels and her passion for interior design.

They decided to try out a radical idea, to convert a palazzo - inherited from Alfio’s mother - besides the Spanish Steps in Rome into a boutique hotel that was more like a home away from home than anything else. Carlotta excitedly got to work selecting pieces of iconic design furniture and contemporary art to combine with some of the family heirlooms that Alfio had from Sicily. But, as the fable says, ‘happy wife, happy life’, he let Carlotta design the interior to her heart’s content. Needless to say, he made the right choice. 12 years later Crossing Condotti has expanded to 9 rooms and an apartment with a constant flow of international travellers stopping by to make themselves at home while visiting the eternal city.
