Apartment Owner's Notes and Description
This apartment in a great location in Rome, smack downtown in the oldest area of the Eternal city, two blocks from the metro. Plenty of restaurants and whatnot. You've got all comfort in terms of heating, unlimited hot water, air conditioning, internet, 2 TVs and whatnot. Price is very reasonable, let a real Roman tell you as a fact, that you won't find much of this value for money around here. Don't let the next guy rent it while you're thinking about it. Go ahead and book it, NOW ;)

Please note: Minimum one week stay over New Year

Great central location in Rome. We felt like locals! Convenient metro location 2 minutes walk away plus lots of good bars and restaurants.  Stay here and enjoy the passeggiata and gelatos.
Mortiny from France
4 of 5
appartement très bien situé à Rome et très spacieux mais aussi très bruyant à cause du bar situé en face et où il y avait du bruit dans la rue jusqu'à 2 heures du matin
Parker from United States of America
4 of 5
Well suited apartment in excellent location.  The large living and bedroom were bright, spacious and had great windows.  It's an easy walk to Rome city center and many great monuments and only 2 minutes to Cavour metro.   There are really great restaurants, bars and shopping in Monti.  It's more of a neighborhood then many of the tourist locations.  

I would recommend that the owner purchase a toaster and provide some cleaning supplies.  Other than that it's great and I'd stay there again.

Die Wohnung ist schön, gut ausgestattet, wunderbar gelegen in Rom. Das einzige Manko, für das aber die Vermieter nichts können: Genau gegenüber liegt eine Bar mit (unerlaubten) Straßenbetrieb und Lärm jede Nacht bis 2, 3 Uhr. An Schlaf ist da (ohne Ohrstöpsel) nicht zu denken.
Omri-engler from Switzerland
4 of 5
Die Wohnung selbst war super. Termini und Kolosseum mit Rom Centro Storico um die Ecke. Zwei Busse und die Metro in der Nähe. Wir konnten den Check-In sogar eine Stunde vorher durchführen. Der Lärmpegel hielt sich in den gewohnten Grenzen und wenn die Fenster wegen der Klimaanlage zu waren war vom Lärm fast nichts wahr zu nehmen

Ich hätte also ohne zögern 5 Punkte gegeben. Leider ging mir aber eine Nachttischlampe von Ikea zu Bruch und das hat für einigen Ärger gesorgt. Meine Kreditkartendaten wurden von Maria beim Check-In notiert. Der Betrag für die Lampe hätte also ohne Probleme abgezogen werden können. Zudem stand auf der Kommode eine zweite Lampe gleichen Typs, die nicht benutzt wurde. Es ist also nicht so, dass ein sofortiger Ersatz vonnöten gewesen wäre.

Statt dessen meinte Maria, die Lampe koste mindestens 50 Euro oder mehr!! Sie müsse dies abklären. Ich solle ihr 50 Euro dalassen und ich würde dann Bescheid erhalten über den zu zahlenden Betrag. Wir sprechen hier von einer Ikea Lampe. Ikea Porta Roma hat uns bestätigt, dass diese Lampe vor 5 Jahren für 10 Euro verkauft wurde.

Ich habe am Ende 15 Euro gegen Quittung dort hinterlassen, trotzdem hat das Ganze ein schlechtes Gefühl bei mir hinterlassen. Mir in Italien eine Ikea Lampe für 50 Euro verkaufen zu wollen grenzt an Betrug. Zudem sehe ich nach wie vor nicht ein, wieso ich überhaupt irgend einen Betrag in bar hätte dalassen sollen. Schade, ohne dieses Erlebnis wäre alles perfekt gewesen.

Für die Wohnung selbst 5 Sterne aber für diesen "Service" höchstens 3.
 
Owner Comments: Hallo Iris, ist Ihr Feedback zu der Wohnung sehr geschätzt. Wir sind, wie kommt es, dass die keyholder Sie gefragt, Geld für die defekte Lampe erkundigen. Sie soll nicht ohne spezifische go voraus tun aus dem Büro. Anders als das toll zu hören, war alles in Ordnung. Wir geben Ihnen eine Rückmeldung per E-Mail

Follow-up: Wie es sich herausstellt, welchen Betrag Sie für die Lampe beim Schlüsselhalter bezahlt wurden 15 Euro und nicht 50. Das Lampe ist aus der Produktion und es gibt Lampen, die nicht weniger als diesen Betrag kosten. I sieht aus wie Sie den Schaden erstattet und können wir prüfen die Angelegenheit abgeschlossen.

Somewhat spacious apartment in a great location, well-equipped.  Our only complaint was the electricity went out one night when it rained and didn't come back until the next morning.  Otherwise, we really enjoyed the place.

We did enjoy this apartment.  Maria & her husband were helpful in overcoming initial problems with the hot water & air conditioning. Washing machine, good size fridge, cooktop & oven. The lighting is a bit sparse. The location is very convenient to the Termini & the local Metro stop is just around the corner. There is a bar directly across the way which stays open until 2am with most people gathering outside. It was not too bothersome but good to know beforehand. Bed was 2 twins together with no footboard which was fine for us tall people. We'd certainly stay here again.
Mclennan from Australia

Simple furnishings but spotlessly clean and very spacious and comfortable and all that was needed for resting at night. Fabulous location with plenty of nearby choice for eating, ranging from local snack bar to full service restaurants and wine bars or do it yourself in the appartment.
Roman from Germany
4 of 5
Die Wohnung ist ganz in Ordnung, mit den eifachen und nötigsten Sachen ausgestaltet, genug Platz, liegt im Zentrum, 10 min. zu Fuß bis Colosseum.
Minus ein Stern:
1.gegenüber der Wohnung befindet sich ein lebhaftes Cafe und an manchen Nächten war es zimlich laut .
2.die Bettwäsche und Tücher waren alle sauber und frisch, leider die Schlafdecke war mit fremden Haaren und anderen Spuren bedeckt, aber wenn man die Augen schließt, dann sieht man das nicht mehr :))
Die Wohnung kann ich empfehlen!
Epstein from United States of America

Lots of good things -- the area, heat, hot water, mostly quiet.  A couple of suggestions.  When travelers arrive in a strange city, they don't bring any perishables.  While there was a little body soap and a roll ot toilet paper, there were no paper towels, paper napkins, dishwashing liquid, or washer detergent.  The apartment could also use kitchen towels and glasses that are not for either drinking beer or wine.

That's it.  Thanks much.
Owner Comments: Great feedback thank you!
I'll make sure to add all you listed above immediately!
Martine from France

A microwave would be convenient. However, this apartment is pleasant, well situated, in a nice area of town.
Owner Comments: Yes, microwave is an excellent idea I'll get one asap.

The apartment was clean, convenient and quiet. I felt very secure and will definitely make every effort to rent the same apartment each year when I visit Rome.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday with this property as our base.  It was well located, near the colosseum and many great restaurants and gelateries.  The air con helped us cool down in the afternoon heat and the facitlities were all in excellent working order.

However, the fridge smelled terribly.  Whenever we opened the fridge, the whole property smelled bad.  Clearly it had not been cleaned prior to our arrival.  This was unfortunate as it meant we did not want to use the fridge for fresh produce.

Also, the sofa bed sagged terribly and needed to be supported underneath in order to sleep comfortably.

Overall we were satisfied, but it could have been better.
Owner Comments: Hi Ben, Thank you for your feedback it's tremendously appreciated. We have just bought a brand new fridge and freezer please excuse the inconvenience, it had a technical problem.

Ben, our office is just across the street, please do pass by on your way out next time around, or call us or email, we fix these kind of issues on the spot. We truly hope to work with you again in the future.

We stayed here almost one week during July and it was excellent. The flat is very close to Colosseum, Foro Romano and Mercati Traianei and the center is just at walking distance. In the area there is a wine bar (just on the other side of the street, a bit noisy on Fridays), a gelateria and some excellent restaurants (Trattoria Al Tettarello was our favourite!). The flat is very big and has everything one might need. The staff was kind and helpful. Just a perfetc place to stay for your Vacanze Romane!!
Graeme from Australia
4 of 5
This was a very good apartment. Excellently situated and well provisioned, it was very comfortable and secure. Perhaps the lighting could have been better, but all told we have no real criticisms of the apartment itself. The man who met us was very helpful. The only drawback was the noise from the libreria across the road.
Four stars.

A real Roman get-away

This apartment is well-located in Rome, very close to the Cavour metro station (one stop from Rome Termini), and 10 minutes walk to the Colosseum. It is in a buzzy area, with many well-priced restaurants, small food shops and bars nearby, but with the feel of genuine Roman everyday life. We spent a week there.

The apartment is on the 1st floor, (with a lift for baggage), and is quite spacious. The kitchen is small but adequate (we cooked several meals there). The wifi worked very well.

It is homely rather than luxurious, but we found it clean, spacious, comfortable, convenient and well-priced – what more could you want?
Bratt from United Kingdom

We enjoyed our stay very much. The apartment was clean and very well equipped.
Shopping for food was good with small general shops and the metro
station situated on the via Urbana which runs parallel to via degli
Zingari. You couldn't wish for a better placing for a visit to Rome. We
have stayed previously at one of your apartments on Urbana and would
prefer to use that one again if we come back the reason being that
as visitors of more mature years we found the constant chattering of
customers, I think they were obliged to come outside to smoke their
cigarettes, at the Libreria directly across from us, rather annoying
as it went on sometimes until the early hours of the morning. All in
all though we had a most enjoyable stay and if the fates allow will
certainly use your services again with confidence. Yours sincerely

Eine sehr schöne Wohnung in hervorragender Lage im lebhaften Staftviertel Monti. Wir können die Wohnung nur empfehlen und werden sie bestimmt einmal wieder buchen,
Besonders nett auch die freundliche Betreuung der Buchung durch Paola.

The apartment is as photographed - spacious, contains all the essentials and a great location. however it could do with freshening up (painting). Therre is a small wine bar across the street, which can be noisy however luckily I had some earplugs so got a great nights sleep then.

This is a good location, 5 minutes from Cavour metro, and about 10-15minutes walk to colosseum. Enzo who checked us in was very very good, professional and informative.I would definitely recommend this place.

Flynn from Ireland

The apartment was ideally located, only 2 minutes from the Cavour Metro stop, and with shops, restaurants and pubs nearby, it is also only 10-15 minute walk to the Colosseum, it made an ideal base,
My only complaint is that it didn’t have an electric kettle so I had to light the gas cooker every time I wanted tea or coffee!
I would stay there again if i was visiting Rome
Escoffier from France

Appartement trés agreable, et parfaitement situé pour visiter Rome. A cinq minutes du Colisée, et à coté de la bouche de Métro Cavour. Le descriptif sur le site est trés conforme à la réalité. Nous le conseillons vivement.

we had a wonderful week vacation in Rome beginning of February.The location is great:in the very centre only 5 minutes walking from Coliseum and from the historical zone of Imperial forum. There is plenty of restaurants,cafes,and antiques and craftsmen shops, and the area is very trendy and with a special atmosphere of "old Rome". We had a very pleasant impression at our arrival: the apartament is really cosy, well furnished ,the kitchen is fully equipped and everything was very neat and clean. The staff at the office of Roman Reference is very friendly and reliable for any problem you may have. We really enjoyed our staying and we do hope to come back very soon.
Rubino from Italy

I would like to briefly comment on the apartment which, in my view, offers an excellent solution for a couple or small family or small group of friends for an enjoyable stay in Rome. It is ideally located in the heart of the ancient city, in an area with lots of restaurants, shops and lively nightlife, at walking distance from some of the main monuments and sites of ancient Rome. The flat is fully equipped with all one can need for a short to medium to longer term stay. Bed linen, towels, plates and cups have recently been renovated. It definitely makes an ideal base for strolls in every part of the city, allowing also a pleasant walk back home in the evening amid people who spend their time sipping their drinks and chatting in the narrow streets of the old Suburra.
Mifsud from Australia

The location of the apartment was fantastic and within walking distance of most attractions, especially the Colosseum.There are great shopping and eating places nearby such as in Piazza Madonna Dei Monti and on Via dei Serpenti and the area has a lively local feel about it. When we arrived, the keyholder was prompt, friendly and helpful. The apartment was tidy at first glance but upon further inspection of the kitchen and bathroom, these rooms were not very clean, including the kitchen benches, utensils, plates etc in the cupboards and the shelves in the fridge. The sheets and towels although clean, were old and worn.  The apartment was very spacious and we felt safe at all times.Roman Reference staff were extremely helpful and friendly both before and during our visit.
Manager Replies: Very sorry about the problems! Your rental was the first after a 2 years long rental the owner had taken therefore our management hadn't still cleaned the apartment, we were relying of the owner's service. From now on our professional service will take care of that and you won't be having these kind of problems. We have a professional laundry service that will take care of changing the sheets with clean ironed one, so no worries about that either! One little note: our office is across the street, if you have problems like these, just come and tell us, we'll fix it immediately.
Owner's reply: We would like to point out that in all these years nobody has ever complained about the cleaning and that we are always very careful to leave the apartment in the best condition to ensure that you will find the apartment clean and dust free.
