We three adult ladies stayed 4 out of 14 nights during our Spain/Italy trip.  This apartment was the best accommodation we had in this trip.

The bathroom is newly renovated, the eat-in kitchen is fully equipped, the living room is good size and worked as additional sleeping area with a coach and a sleep sofa.  

The location is excellent, walking to the train station, Colosseum, Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore and many more tourist attractions.

There is a hidden treasure in this area, a small Japanese/Thai restaurant just a few yards down at the end of the street.  We had "take away" and enjoyed the delicious food in the apartment's dining table. We wish we discovered this restaurant earlier than our last night in the apartment. The food was delicious and very affordable.

Vito, our host, was most accommodating, letting us leave our luggage on our last day so we can go to the Vatican City to be part of the Papal audience.  He even pulled our luggage halfway to the train station. Thank you Vito... from Susan, Fely, and Rose.

We loved staying in this apartment in Rome and Vito was more than helpful making sure we were happy and comfortable. We would certainly recommend this place to family or friends.

The apartment is perfect both for a short and for a longer stay in Rome. The location is excellent - about 10 minutes walk from the Colosseum and about 5 minutes from Termini Station and from metro stations of both lines A and B of Rome's metro. The surroundings of the apartment are also very good - it's just next to the famous Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, while the Basilica di Sanda Prassede is literally nextdoor. There are also at least three supermarkets nearby and several restaurants within less than 100 meters. The apartment is beautifully decorated, very clean and spacious. It has a very well-equipped kitchen with everything you may need for cooking. It was a real pleasure for us to stay in this apartment and there's nothing more we could have asked for. And last but not least our host Vito was extremely hospitable, kind and helpful and made us feel really welcome, which we are very thankful about.
Owner Comments: Thanks a lot to you Augustina and Alexander

A nice apartment that is close to lots of great amenities in Rome.  Great access to nearby bakeries, restaurants, and bars.  A short walk down past the Cavour metro stop (5 min.) puts you in the heart of Monti, one of Rome's most charming districts.  The only downside was that there was quite a lot of street noise when we were trying to sleep at night.

The apartment itself was clean and well furnished, for the most part.  The kitchen was large and quite functional, and the living room was very spacious.  The one small bedroom featured an awkward, sagging queen bed that tended to sag in ways that could give rise to back pain for some.  Beware the light switch on the wall that turns off the WIFI router --- if you switch that off, you'll have to re-enter the world's longest wifi password into your devices before you can regain access to the internet.

All in all, despite these small headaches, this was a great deal.  The place was nice enough, and it was situated in a great location for exploring Rome.
Owner Comments: Hi Mark
Thanks for your reviews.
Now you have a single switch for the wifi router and a new base for the mattress of the original  1800 bed.
New soundproof  windows will be provided in winter time.

Comfortable apartment. Clean, big, beautifull, full kitchen equipement, clean sheets and towels.
Good location, close to termini and metro station. Easy to walk to city centre in 15 - 20 minutes.
Vito is very polite and helpfull and smily.
We recomment the apartment.

Sehr schöne und geräumige Wohnung. Wir (4-köpfige Familie) haben die Osterfeiertage hier verbracht und waren rundum zufrieden. Man kann viele Sehenswürdigkeiten zu Fuss erreichen, da die Wohnung sehr zentral liegt. Die Haltestellen der öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel sind ebenfalls nah gelegen. Besonders hervorzuheben ist allerdings die nette, unkomplizierte und umgängliche Art von Vito (er nimmt die Wohnungsübergabe vor). Er versucht für alle Fragen und etwaige Probleme eine Lösung zu finden. Sollten wir Rom nochmals besuchen, ist cities REFERENCES unser erster Ansprechpartner.

Prachtig, oud, tegen de kerk (San Prassede) aan gelegen appartement met ruime kamer, slaapkamer en woonkeuken. Koel, welgoed te verwarmen, beetje donker, sfeelvol ingericht. Veel highlights op loopafstand. Verder bushalte vlakbij. Wij hebben ervan genoten. Aanrader!
PS Keyholder zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam.

This apartment was just about perfect for our holiday in Rome. The whole experience starting from dealing with Roma Reference for the booking, pre-holiday contact with Vito, the representative of the property, meeting up with Vito for the keys handover on arrival to handing back at the end of the stay was smooth and easy. Both Roma Reference and Vito were easy to contact and deal with, which made the whole transactional side of the experience a pleasure. There was a warm welcome from Vito and a bottle of wine and fruit juice awaiting us on arrival! Vito explained everything and has also provided a very helpful list of handy hints relevant to the area and other guests have left a collection of leaflets and business cards for local shops, attractions and restaurants etc.

Now the review of the property. It’s a bright, traditional first floor apartment spread over five rooms (counting the entrance hall as one room) with plenty of space. One bed is a “normal” Queen sized bed, the other is a large sofa bed. Both are comfortable. One of the features of the property is that it’s part of the building adjoining the Church of Santa Prassede. It has a private shared courtyard and the internal rooms have beautiful exposed wooden beams. The courtyard isn’t suitable for sitting out in because it’s too small, but it’s separated from the street by a huge lockable iron gate, so security is of no concern. On the subject of security, the location is quite busy and quite near Termini but we felt secure all of the time.

The street that the bedroom and sitting room windows open on to can be quite noisy at time; there are several (very good) restaurants and bars on it, so you may want to bear this in mind if you’re sensitive to noise. I use ear plugs and had a great night’s sleep every night. My wife doesn’t and found it noisy on a few nights but Rome is a busy city and you’re likely to get this pretty much anywhere. On balance we didn’t find it a problem.

The property has pretty much all of the features you would expect; gas cooker (no oven, though), microwave with grill (no toaster, though) fridge with a small freezer, excellent internet and wi-fi, a small TV (not that we used it at all) shower (no bath) toilet and bidet. There’s plenty of storage all over the apartment so even four people would have no trouble storing all their stuff and would have plenty of room. One factor to bear in mind; the bathroom is off one of the bedrooms so two couples sharing would have to fight over the master bedroom ;) As well as all the essential pots, pans, cups, glasses, plates etc the kitchen also has a small stock of things like olive oil, balsamic etc which is a nice touch if you plan on doing some home cooking. We bought pasta, cook-in sauces, freshly baked bread and wine from the local supermarket a few nights which helped with the budget!
The location is about 10 mins walk from Termini but experience showed us that it’s easier to walk 5 mins to Cavour for Metro line B (though getting from Cavour back to the apartment involves climbing a steep hill, so bear that in mind if you have luggage) and less than 5 mins to Vittorio Emanuele for line A. It’s then about 20-30 mins from Colloseo (line B) or Spagna (line A) into the centre of Rome.

There are multiple shops and restaurants and even a bakery within a very short distance of the apartment. We bought fresh croissants for breakfast and bread/cheese for packed lunches from the bakery on Via Di Santa Martino ai Monti (go out the gate, turn right and right again and its 25m down the street) and ate at Hangzhou Chinese (and Japanese) and the Nipotino del Solitario pizzeria on the same street and both were excellent. We also found a superb authentic Indian (run by an Indian family) The Sitar (Indian) next to the Cavour Metro on Cavour.

So, all-in-all a near perfect holiday experience for us and comes highly recommended. We would certainly stay here again and advise friends and family to do so.

Outstanding experience! Great apartment in Rome! Clean, beautiful and convenient. Authentic medieval house which is a part of St. Prassede Church. Great wooden ceilings. A good combination of antiques and modern design. Few steps to Santa Maria Maggiore. 5 minutes by foot to Termini station that makes it convinient to travel around Italy. 15 minutes to Colloseum and Piazza Barberini. You have everything you need for short and long stay in Rome. Free WIFI. Personal thanks to Vito who tried to do everything to make our vacation in Rome unforgettable!

Wir haben wunderbare Tage in Rom verbracht und nicht zuletzt, weil die Wohnung sehr gut ausgestattet und sehr angenehm ist. Der Strassenlärm zur späten Stunde haben wir zwar gehört aber am nächsten Tag wieder vergessen, dafür ist die Wohnung ideal gelegen. Mille grazie a Vito per la sua gentilezza e la sua disponibilita. Cordiali Saluti Sophie & Claus.

Great apartment and good location to explorer the city! Conveniently close to Termini station, but not too close to meet all those strangers around.
We are family of 4 and kids had enough space in the apartment. Vito the manager was very friendly and helpful.
The only backdrop was tight shower. Everything else was perfect.
Owner Comments: Thanks, during the winter we will make renovations including new bathroom with a shower larger

Excellent apartment! The photos don't do justice to this lovely hidden gem in Rome! It is very conveniently located near the main station Terminus, and well-connected to the city center. 

Vito, the manager was immensely helpful as well and made our stay and exit so easy and smooth! 

The only downside  in the apartment is the lack of airconditioning in the bedroom which made it rather uncomfortable given that we traveled to Rome in August in the peak of the heat wave! 
Owner Comments: Thanks Subadra,I'm glad to inform you that during the winter an air conditioner will be installed in the bedroom.Vito

Very happy with the accommodation (and Vito has been a wonderful host). The apartment looks better than in the photos and we had a pleasant stay. When we were reading some reviews, people we complaining about the noise, I have to say that even being sensitive to the outside noise, did not experience any disturbance at night. It was one of the best decisions to rent this accommodation as it is very well located. Main sights were close and Termini station is only a few minutes away. Besides, Vito explained where to find nice fruit and vegetables market, where you can find stuff quite cheap for your breakfast. At the apartment we have found everything we needed and it was very clean. Only one thing I could point out that even though shower was clean, it could have used some bleach and chloride cleaning.
Value for money and we will definitely stay there again when visiting Rome.
Cheers Vito for a very nice accommodation.

Nous avons séjourné 5 jours à Rome et avons beaucoup apprécié notre appartement,. Bien situé, dans une petite rue pleine de charme à 2 pas de la basilique Santa maria maggiore; à 8 min de la gare termini, à 2 min des arrets de bus open tour (super pour démarrer une visite de l'ensemble de Rome) dont les billets sont vendus au kiosque au bout de la rue et de nombreux restaurants, épiceries, et même un supermarché qu'on a trouvé un peu tard.... mais il faut se renseigner.
Vito nous a accueilli chaleureusement avec un panier de fruits frais et une bouteille de vin! c'était très agréable de se sentir les bienvenus surtout apres notre long périble en train sous la chaleur torride. Il nous a donné des infos et son numéro de telephone. Il est tout à fait joignable si besoin.
L"appartement est semblable aux photos et vidéos présentées, propre et commode. La clim et internet fonctionnent bien.
Si je devais retourner à Rome je n'hésiterais pas à louer cet appartement à nouveau.
Très peu de voitures passent dans cette ruelle, pas de bruits de circulation par contre le bar en bas attire du monde; surtout le week end et les conversations remontent à l'appartement. Un double vitrage serait idéal pour se couper du bruit.
Merci à Vito de notre part à tous les 3

My husband and I stayed at this apartment for a week. It was a wonderful experience! The apartment had everything we could possibly need. The location is ideal. All the main tourist sights are close by and basically at walking distance. The termini station is at 5 min walking distance. Even though there is a pub underneath and restaurants close by we were never disturbed by any noise. Internet worked perfectly. The apartment itself is really lovely with very pretty furniture. We found Vito to be a very warm and friendly person and it was a pleasure to chat with him. He also made us feel very well taken care of.

Location: excellent; within 20-25 min walking you can reach any historical sites and other interesting spots.
As we enjoy walking, we actually didn't use metro except to reach Vatican. If you prefer to use metro note that the apartment is located close to two metro stations (Termini and Cavour). The apartment is situated in the small street away from heavy traffic.
In the apartment all the amenities were great, apartment itself is very comfortable, also kitchen was very well equipped. Our host Vito met as at the apartment and was very helpful showing us everything and provided us with lot of useful information.
When we decide to visit Rome next time, we will book this apartment for sure.

I spend amazing time in Rome and comfortable staying in this apartment. There are charming surroundings and good connection with other place of city. Just there are a little bit noisy from the street because of few close restaurants, but it does play if windows of apartment are shut. I would back here and I recommend it to others.
If you cook by yourselves, I recommend close small local Italian shops to buy bred, pasta, meet, wine and alia instead of supermarkets and local market, that is mentioned in description of this apartment, because of sellers, where atmosphere are not real Italian.

My wife and I visited Rome in March 2012  and rented this property for 9 days - the apartment itself is perfect - Vito met us at the apartment and showed us everything (very nice guy). The rooms were sizable - the kitchen was just refurbished and internet wifi installed (5 days before our visit). No complaints at all - there was some minor noise from the bar below the apartment, but it was St Patricks day so to be expected for Irish bar. The location is great - close to several restaurants and about 10 minutes to Cavour metro or 15 minutes to Termini station/metro. All the amenities were fine - the shower, bed, etc. Having a functioning kitchen was a great help - there are several groceries nearby. The apartment itself shares walls with the Santa Prassede Basilica, which has wonderful mosaics that you shouldnt miss. I can't say enough about the quality of this apartment - i would rent it again on my next visit. The online photos and videos are very helpful. Cities Reference (Roman Reference) is great to work with as well.

Great location: quiet but near Termini.  Lovely appartment.   Golden Fork restaurant around corner is great and crowded with locals.  But be sure is says internet works.  Wasn't installed yet March 2012.
Owner Comments: Thanks! now internet wifi has been installed from march 15.
