Review 3902: Italy Perfect, Flaminio
2bed/2bath apartment near Piazza del Popolo, Rome
Sept 2008, 7 nights
The apartment is located five minutes north of the Piazza del Popolo. The neighborhood was surprising quiet considering its proximity to the sites, e.g.- Pizza del Popolo and Spanish Steps.
There was a grocery around the corner that was great for picking up the basics. There are a few coffee shops and a gourmet food store all within the vicinity.
The building itself is modern with marble lobby and a doorman. The apartment was tastefully furnished with everything one might need. A point to note, the apartment was impeccably clean. I could eat off the floors! The owner was very friendly and more than accommodating. He helped me figure out my Italian cellphone and booked a taxi for us to go to the airport. The apartment is located on the top floor so we heard no noise, which is a rarity in Rome!
There's a nice wraparound terrace with a table and benches. It was a great feature of the apartment that was utilized whenever we were there!
The furniture was in great shape. Everything was spotless. The apartment is a nice size. We were a group of three and it never felt cramped. There are doors that open on to the terrace, which makes the apartment nice and airy. On the days where it was really hot, it was nice to be able to use the air conditioner. There were air conditioners in every room except the kitchen.
The master bedroom was a nice size with a gorgeous marble bathroom attached. The smaller bedroom really is tiny, but I didn't mind because I was only using it to sleep.
I cooked a few nice and authentic Roman meals in the kitchen. It is very well equipped with everything from cutting boards to a dishwasher. I love to cook and was very happy to cook in that kitchen!

Agency and Representatives (and price)
Pat from Italy Perfect (aka Excellent Europe) was great to work with. Everything went smoothly from the payments to arrival information. It was a genuine relief to work with Pat and to feel confident that everything would be handled efficiently. I used another agency on an earlier trip to Rome and was thoroughly disappointed. You can check out my review Vicolo Savelli to see the difference.
Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?
Absolutely! In fact I am referring my wedding guests to Italy Perfect/Excellent Europe for my upcoming wedding in Rome.
