Perfect location for all sightseeing in Rome
Posted Apr 10, 2017
We stayed in the Crosti Residences (apartments). The staff always approachable and friendly in the hotel (where you check in and out), but also housekeeping staff were lovely, it was very clean and in good repair.
I have never stayed in self catering before and couldn't fault the rooms or bathroom, however I expected cooking facilities. I would recommend anyone staying here, but unless your eating out each meal time, take your own equipment for kitchen (especially a small paring knife). This is my only complaint, that as a self catering apartment I expected to be able to provide meals easily for my family, but the equipment in kitchenette were a very large bread knife, 2 x pasta pots, 1 x small saucepan, 2 x colanders, 1 x glass bowl, 1 x cheese grater, cutlery, a 4 ringed hob (no oven), microwave.
Cutting herbs and garlic and everything with a very long bladed bread knife was difficult, could not have toast, had to fry or boil everything, but I managed to feed us. I appreciate some don't cook like myself so this may well be a grumble personal to me being a foodie and wanting to cook with authentic Italian ingredients.
However on the positive I won't go self catering again, decided to difficult and will stay in a hotel for the food, I get a holiday then as well then!
