Thank you so much Vttraveler!
Arco del Lauro seems very nice as well! I actually did book the Santa Croce, but still debating....errr!!! I hope all the places I picked are going to be OK at least. I finally booked for all Milan, Venice and Rome but I can't believe I am still researching for more hotels LOL! it is fun though

I don't think the location of the Santa Croce, southeast of the stazione, is very good. That area used to be kinda shady. And I suspect several of the reviews on www.tripadvisor.com were supplied by the owner. Too great a variety of foreign languages.

The best location in Rome is around the Piazza Navona-Campo dei Fiori-Trevi Fountain. Nice and central and easy walking to most of the main sights.

Hotel Arenula Via Santa Maria de' Calderari, right of Via Arenula, is very centrally located. It is recommended as an inexpensive option in Frommer's. It is at the edge of the Jewish ghetto neighborhood where we rented an apartment two years ago.

I would definitely pick that neighborhood or the area near Arco del Lauro over the location of the Santa Croce.

Vttraveler,
Thank you so much! I took in your adise and booked the Arco del Lauro!!! I will be cancelling the Santa Croce and I finally feel like I don't have to search for accomodations any more since I am pretty sure I will like the Arco del Lauro I am really excited to get there!

You have to come to Tuscany via the coast, Milan is fantastic for shopping and fashion but you should experience the Olives and Wines of Tuscany.Allow about 3 hours for the trip.
