We stayed at the Hotel Crosti from Jan 03 2009 for 6 nights based on the tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. The hotel was spotlessly clean, well located (10 mins from Termini Station) and the rooms were adequately sized for us ,although the shower was on the small side (so if you're very cuddly it might be a squeeze). We also found the beds and pillows a bit firm, but that could be because we normally sleep on a pillow top latex mattress at home.
The breakfast was plentiful and very tasty and the girls were lovely (they also make a good cuppacino and espresso, which we preferred to the filter coffee that is provided at each table). The guys at the front desk were also very helpful and accommodating. As there were four of us, we wanted somewhere to sit and play cards in the evening - no problem - they cleared one of the breakfast tables for us and let us sit there as long as we wanted. They also assisted us with dinner reservations (with both their own and other restaurants), taxi to the airport and helped us when we left a bag on the bus on one of our day trips.
We ate most nights at the Steak House diagonally across the road because the Bucatini Matriciana and Spaghetti Carbona were the best we had during our time in Rome and we found it reasonable priced (Aussie dollars don't buy you much at he moment). We also tried the Hotel's restaurant (down the street) and had a lovely meal there as well. At the end of the meal they gave us a bottle of frozen lemon licquer (very powerful and delicious!).
I think that the neighbourhood could be a little daunting at night if you were a single female travelling alone, but the 4 of us had no problems at all.
Lastly, I would like to thank all the Tripadvisor reviewers for their contributions. I don't go anywhere unless I have checked it out on Tripadvisor, and you haven't let me down.
