Review 3319: Italy Perfect, Veneto


Review by Bob Kellen from US

1bed/1bath near Borghese Gardens, Rome


December 2007, 1 week


The location was in the historic center of Rome near the Via Veneto and only two blocks to the Borghese Gardens. A 10 minute walk to the Spanish Steps, 15 minutes down the Via Veneto to Piazza Barberini.

Nearby Amenities

Very conveniently located near the Veneto subway entrance (two blocks), two small grocery stores within two blocks and plenty of restaurants and cafes in the neighborhood. We found it to be very convenient. There was even a tiny hair salon off the building lobby where my wife got her hair cut one day.

The House/Apartment

Building was attractive and nicely maintained. Apartment was very quiet and looked just like the photos. We were so pleased to have found it. There were two other apartments on the same floor with local residents.

You can view the apartment directly: Veneto Apartment.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

The apartment was nicely appointed. A comfortable sofa which converted into two beds at night for our kids in the living room, bedroom was perfect for us. Bed was comfortable.


Bathroom was fine for us with enclosed shower. Shower stall was a bit small for me but that seems to be the standard size in Europe. We were delighted to have a washer and dryer too.


Kitchen had everything we needed including a table for four people.

Problems or Bonuses

We were very happy with our stay at the Veneto apartment and would stay there again.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

Lisa at Italy Perfect was very responsive and helpful in answering all of our questions. She gave us a really helpful primer on what to expect when renting in Italy and a list of favorite restaurants and other tips, as well as the locations of where to buy groceries, bus tickets, cafes in the neighborhood. The greeter was prompt and spoke English perfectly when we met him at the apartment upon arrival.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

Absolutely! We hope to return again.
