  Pflaumer / United States of America
We recently stood in this apartment in Rome for three nights. Given its location close to Campo dei Fiori and not far from Ponte Sisto/Trastevere, this would have been a great facility, except it had a number of defects, which the owner was unable/unwilling to fix.

To start with, the TV you can see in the picture was simlpy not there. Neither was the DVD player that was mentioned in the description. Only one of the two burners of the stove were working. The washer and dryer were both out of order. The owner volunteered the latter and offered to pay for laundry service. However, he did not reveal the defective stove until we brought it up. He also claimed the description of the apartment did not include a TV - it did, as does the accompanying picture. 

Our unfortunate experience illustrates the general risk for visitors to work with a middle man like Roman Reference. While the company's CEO, Guglielmo Parasporo, was quick to apologize when we complained, he was also quick to remind us of the fine print of the rental terms and conditions, which explain the limited power of the company - since it does not own any of the apartments it lists on its web site, essentially, it can only nudge but not force the (independent) apartment owners to fix any defects! That being said, my humble suggestion to do what is in the power of the company - offer us a partial refund - has been ignored thus far.

My recommendations to other visitors are the following:
- Make sure you rent an apartment that has been "verified" (basically this means checked out) by Roman Reference or any other rental company you use
- Don't pay in cash; instead use Paypal. This gives you more power in case of any problems. Unfortunately, our attempt to use my wife's Paypal account did not work, probably because she had not used her account for some time and she had never used it it abroad

I cannot say enough great things about not only the apartment, but the location in Rome, neighborhood and mostly the hostess Stella. The apartment is even more beautiful in person than in the pictures, you cannot go wrong with this choice of place to stay. You literally walk out the front door and turn to your left and can see the colliseum just blocks away. The neighborhood has many nice little market stores, and one amazing restaurant nearby. I wish I could remember the same of it, but it sits on a corner, and is ALWAYS busy. Their food, service and prices are amazing there. Stella was more than we could have imagined for a host, she kept in touch the entire time, had her mom cook us a wonderful italian meal, answered all our questions and recommended many places to stay. She took care of us for the months prior to the trip, and during our entire stay.

It was my second stay in Rome with the RomanReference. Marvellous again! Chicco's (the owner) apt. is a perfect place to stay. Cosy, elegant, with a good location, comfortable - well, except for the narrow kitchen, but whatever! :) Very friendly neighbours. And Chicco himself... helpful, hospitable and a pleasant Roman gentleman :) If You find any sign of some tears anywhere in the house... it's ours... We cried when we were leaving ;) Great time, great spot! Thank You Chicco!! :)

This apartment was great!  It was out first stop in Italy, and we could not have been happier!  Everything was clean and ready for us-- seeing as to how it is hard to keep white furniture and white things (in general) clean, this is saying something!  It was a great space for me and my wife, and is very conveniently located in the middle of everything! ~10 min walk from the Colosseum, and only a few minutes' walk from the metro/subway.

The host was awesome, very hospitable.  He even had a list of recommended places to visit, and good places to eat (this was very important to us).  Additionally, he offers his services as a private guided tour of Rome (for a fee) if needed.

In all, it was a lovely experience, and we would definitely rent again!

Staying in an apartment in Rome rather than a hotel was the best idea I've had in years. The apartment was fine, more than large enough - with two bedrooms and two bathrooms - for two friends to share comfortably. It is on the ground floor of a corner building so I can't say it was quiet because it wasn't but I think that there would be very few apartments in Trastevere that could claim that. But I've lived in Rome and it didn't take me long to readjust to the background noise, from the street (and the demented Trastevere seagulls), that is part of life there. The apartment was adequately equipped for visitors - washing machine, dishwasher, enough cooking equipment for basic self-catering (and why, with so many wonderful trattorie and pizzerie, on your doorstep, would you want anything else?), lots of clean linen. Location was great - within very close walking distance of Viale Trastevere and also of Ponte Sisto and then to the Centro Storico. There are also two supermarkets very close by as well as the daily fresh fruit and vegetable market in Piazza di San Cosimato.
I have only two quibbles about this apartment: if you are planning to rent it, make sure you take some toilet paper. There was none there when we arrived, which could and would have been a disaster for anyone arriving after supermarket closing time unequipped with a viable substitute like Kleenex; and I suggest to the owner/manager of this property that they invest in and use some washable mattress protectors. Even with a sheet between me and the mattress, the thought of sleeping in such close proximity to the evidence left by previous visitors was a bit creepy.

The apartment was in a great location and we were able to walk to practically all the sights of Rome.
Steps up to and inside the apartment were a challenge as they were steep but,thankfully, only one flight.
The outside space was great and we breakfasted there each morning,also great for drying laundry..
Basic apartment but still charming as it felt really rustic and authentic.
Having two separate bedrooms was ideal for us and the beds were comfortable.
The key holder who greeted us was pleasant and took time to explain everything to us.
The agency was very helpful by allowing us to leave our luggage at the apartment as we had a late evening flight.
Supermarket etc within five minutes.
Enjoyed our stay In Rome Trastevere and glad to recommend this apartment.

This is apartment is wonderful. A very nice space to call home for the week. You can walk to most of the major sites from here and the metro stop is very close.  We enjoyed the neighborhood and all of its restaurants.   Stella was an amazing host.  She was available whenever we had a question and she was very helpful giving us many pointers about the sites of Rome.  She made sure our stay in Rome was perfect.

The apartment was exactly as shown, you get as pictured and more! Beds were comfy enough for myself and the rest of my family, and I pride myself on being a picky sleeper - but all was well, pillows and mattresses are both comfy AND you'll find after a day of roaming in sweltering Rome, you'll be worn out and easing into sleepy slumber without your own consent. 

Air conditioning in each bedroom was incredibly refereshing, very fast and functionality is accessible and easy to understand - within an hour of being on, the room will have cooled down to a sufficient temperature (bare in mind, my natural envirnoment is England, compartively cool and so the AC really does work quickly).

With regards to rooms, plenty of space for clothing and any other accessories, you can see how much space you get in each room from the pictures - they are in no way deceptive. The dining/kitchen room may be more snug than most are used to, but perfectly manageable, also whilst we're here - fridge/freezer/dishwasher/microwave/toaster/kettle etc. all worked to tip-top condition!

Bathrooms are clean and pleasant, showers are great - quick hot water, not much more to say but considering there are two showers - everyone can get washed and cleaned quickly and swiftly. 

WiFi was supplied for us, free and no limit on usage (or bandwidth), was very fast and a great surprise as didn't realise we would get it.

Location wise, you're less than ten minutes from the Colosseum, you're about 5 minutes from Manzoni metro station (the tube) and the street on the corner of Via Labicana is filled with cheap and cheerful eateries. Excellent location and within a ten minute walk to the Colosseum, Forum and Palatine, about thirty minutes from Pantheon and a longer walk for the Vatican City (take the Metro, only 3 EUR there and back! OR 6 EUR for a whole days travel).

Marco and his wife provided an excellent service, offering AND giving help when needed, they advised us on trips we wanted to take and also sorted out some well priced taxis for us to travel from the airport to Via Labicana. As previously mentioned in some reviews, we were greeted by a humble chocolate cake - a humble and tasty one and was gone before the front door closed!

For the price, location, apartment and service, I'm not sure we could have done better for the price; I believe some of the negative reviews on here may have been 'of there time' but this is a 5/5 for us every time!

Thanks again Marco and Tatiana!

This apartment is a jewel.  Lots of stairs and the gate make it very secure so you can rest easy.  The terrace is wonderful for sipping coffee or wine or taking a meal.  The view peeking at the Campo dei Fiori is great. Be warned this is a bustling place.  The market in the morning is a great place to stock your kitchen and the music from the night life is fun and not too loud.  We walked everywhere in Rome and found this a perfect location for hitting most of the famous sites.  The apartment was very clean, airy and the wi-fi good enough for streaming movies.  Also we were very grateful for the AC which was quiet and effective when the afternoons became hot and humid.  It was also nice to have the option to open all the windows and shutters to catch a morning breeze.  We would stay in this apartment again for sure. It was worth the money. Only catch is the via is very narrow and hard for airport shuttle to get to.  Be sure to tell your driver to allow extra time to park outside the square and walk in!  Ciao and enjoy your stay in #1007 and all that Rome has to offer.

The apartment was fantastic in so many ways . To start with, Enzo who met us at the apartment was very friendly , helpful , professional and made us welcome . Raffaella who I emailed to and fro for weeks before was also very helpful and professional . These are a few of the reasons we will always stay there again if lucky enough to repeat a visit to Rome :
1. space and layout was terrific - 2 children shared a room , one on a large and comfortable roll out bed - with heaps of room and lots of storage 
2. large bathroom and great ensuite 
3. large airy and lovely main bedroom
3. loved the balcony - rear of home , quiet and lovely to sit and listen to Rome 
4. the light in the apt resulted in it feeling cheery and airy 
5. small kitchen with everything we needed - and more ! 
6. we loved the 3 sets of french doors across front of home , opening them every morning to people watch on the cute little street Via Cimarra 
7. Location , location , location !  Monti area is so close to so much- sights, shops,resturants,bakery, supermarket, butcher , wine bars ,  train  etc 
8.the feel of the apt is very Roman/Italian and we enjoyed the lovely furnishing and decorations , always feeling immersed in local type living .
The apt would be suitable for 2 people , and small families ( 2 children )  and lots of room to spread out . Mattresses are very very firm , but we were Ok with this 
We felt priveleged and lucky to have had a friend recommend the apt to us , and we would absolutely highly recommend it as value for money!

I found the appartment very nice, clean and has wi-fi internet. The owner was very nice with us and borrowed a stroller for our little child. There is a little market very close, open until 9 PM, a very very important aspect. Good location in Rome not too far from the metro and the Vatican. I recommend.

This is a great property for a small group. My husband and I and our adult daughter stayed for 6 nights. The apartment description is very accurate. The location in Rome was hard to beat. It's not easy to find ground level apartments; after dragging luggage up and down stairs and hills, it was such a welcomed site! The kitchen is very small but adequate. We had trouble with the internet and the owner responded immediately with a hotspot device. There is an enclosed patio in which we enjoyed a few breakfasts. Large people might have trouble with the shower since the opening was only 12” wide. The S. Pietro station is only a 5-10 minute walk. There is a neighborhood restaurant, Cafe Braccio, next door. (They were a little loud on Fri. night), but otherwise we really appreciated being in the neighborhood with the convenience of a restaurant next door. As tourists, we were the minority. I will be recommending this apartment to friends and family.

A very nice flat in Rome ancient centre with two separate tiny bathrooms, all in a good condition due to recent renovations. The kitchen has everything you need. The balcony with a rusty spiral staircase to the roof terrace is so beautyful and convenient for breakfast outside. The apartment is lovely. We felt very comfortable. Highly recommendable!
