Italy Perfect Guest Reviews
Strozzi

"The accommodations were amazing. Great location and setting. My brother and I probably enjoyed sightseeing and sleeping in the most (we are university students). As previously stated, the location and neighborhood were wonderful and there were really no problems or drawbacks whatsoever. The landlord/owner was very nice and helpful with all of our questions and had great patience and understanding despite our lack of ability to speak or understand most of the Italian language. Thank you very much."

"The apartment was beautiful, spacious and very comfortable. Marcella greeted us upon arrival and was very gracious. She was always available for any questions or issues. We absolutely loved the location and couldn't stop commenting on how beautiful the neighborhood is. While the neighborhood is very upscale, there are still many casual and inexpensive restaurants in the neighborhood. We were able to walk everywhere in the city from our neighborhood. The decorations around the city during the Christmas were fabulous and we really enjoyed spending New Year's Eve in Rome. It did seem a little wild that night. We had been told in advance that it would be safe, and it was. We highly recommend Valentina!"

"We are two middle aged ladies who are dedicated art lovers and museum goers. We spent a week in the Strozzi apartment in late October, 2008 and loved every minute. The location is in a safe, upscale, conveniently situated neighborhood, with every needed service nearby. Our expectations were exceeded, and we plan to stay in Strozzi again within a year or two.Our dealings with Italy Perfect were exceptional. Every detail was handled professionally and to our satisfaction. We plan to use this company whenever possible, and recommend Italy Perfect without hesitation to all travelers."

"My mom and I were returning to Firenze to visit my little sister in the last few weeks of her semester abroad. I too had lived in Firenze over 10 years ago, so I knew the area that apartment would be located in. As the taxi pulled up I was very excited to see that the apartment was not only wonderfully located but it was right down the street from one of my favorite places to eat (La Spada=astounding food!) Miki and Franco were waiting for us with open arms, and a bottle of Vin Santo. They explained were everything was located and left us feeling cared for and well taken care of. The computer room was a huge plus as well as the loaner cell phone. The apartment itself was wonderfully laid out and had an abundance of cooking supplies. Though it would have been nice to have a DVD player in the unit. We did enjoy flipping through the satellite TV channels. It was great being able to wake up make a cup of coffee and just relax in the living room. My mom enjoyed meeting our neighbors and exchanging stories of their travels. The location of the apartment was great as well seeing that it is just a 5 minute walk to the bus or train station. I plan on returning to Italy later this year and I will definitely try to stay here again. Thank you for an marvelous time!"

"As we approached our apartment, we were surprised at how upscale and beautiful the neighborhood was. While it is in one of the nicest areas of Rome, we never felt out of place with our 3 children. In fact, it felt very safe, and there were many inexpensive restaurants from which to chose close by. The location turned out to be ideal. We found that we could walk everywhere.The apartment is beautifully furnished, updated and very large. There was more than enough room for our family of 5 to spread out. The kitchen is small, but is well stocked and can be used to cook anything. We never prepared a dinner in the apartment, but it could be done.The woman we rented from was lovely. She lives one flight up which made it convenient for any questions. She addressed any issues we had with promptness.We highly recommend visiting Pompeii. However, we went during December and were told it is almost prohibitively hot during the summer months. We took a train from Rome which included a transfer in Naples. If you are planning to do a day trip to Pompeii, I would recommend hiring a driver and settling on a price ahead of time. The train was a hassle and we felt we got ripped off on the way down. We also took tours of the Forum and the Vatican which we highly recommend. Even if you've visited the Pantheon during the day, it's worth a night time visit. There are many, many restaurants in the area, and the Pantheon is particularly impressive at night as are the fountains.Don't forget to try the gelato. We became addicted. It is very fun to try out the different gelato places."

"We spent the first 2 weeks of November in the Strozzi apartment and loved it. Miki and Franco were delightful and very helpful. The apartment is beautiful and comfortable, and we liked that it is part of a private corridor with computer room and other amenities. The location is very central--we walked everywhere. We did cook simple meals, although since there is no counter space it required some juggling. The Mercato Centrale is a fabulous source of food and shopping there was a highlight of our trip. Thank you, Lisa, for answering all of my questions so quickly, and thanks to Miki and Franco for being perfect hosts."

"The Bellina worked for us very well; we were blessed with a favorable euro/dollar exchange rate and the apartment provided lots of good space, far more than a hotel room, for just under $ 250 U.S. per night for the two of us. The kitchen was efficient even if we used it very little; the bedroom was cozy with many pillows and blankets; the bathroom functioned well. We particularly liked the living room space with it's two couches and flat screen tv---a fine place to collapse after rigorous days of being tourists. The Italy Perfect staff were very helpful,pleasant and efficient. We shall be back!"

"We absolutely loved te Renata apartment. The owner met us and allowed us early morning check in. The location is perfect with wonderful restaurants and shopping. Centrally located. A very safe neighborhood. After many years of staying at the 5* hotel next door, the Renata was a wonderful alternative. Plenty of room. I highly recommend the Renata. Live like a Roman."

"Overall we were very pleased with Strozzi. The location was great; we loved the neighborhood. The use of the computer, internet, and printer was a bonus that made the trip so much easier. All the recommendations for nearby restaurants and shops were right on. Service was very good. No complaints at all. Appreciated having a lift, washing machine and bidet, TV, lots of room. And the welcome basket with a bottle of wine that we drank out on the terrace was a very nice touch."

"I was only in Florence 4 days visiting friends but I found the overall experience at the Michaela very good. The hosts were excellent, very helpful and willing to do anything needed. I was very familiar with the area and highly recommend the coffee across the street at Cafe Giacosa - the best cappucino in the world I am sure! Being right in the centre of the best shopping area I thought the apartment would be noisy but it was not.The only problem I expereinced was the lack of screens on the window. It was October and I did not turn on the air-conditioning, didn't realize there were mosquitos - so I had lots of bites.Very safe even when I returned late at night.Highly recommend the place and the company."

Casa San Vito

Casa San Vito

"WOW! Casa San Vito is a beautiful and comfy farmhouse that allowed us and my brother and sister-in-law to live a Tuscan lifetstyle that was filled with lots of laughter, wine and great food. To be able to pick fresh figs, apples, basil and rosemary right outside our door was super, and the views from every room was spectacular! Franca and family were wonderful to us, and made us feel right at home. We have used Italy Perfect before and they are simply PERFECT!"

"As you predicted we were delighted by its location, spaciousness and stylish furnishings. The hostess was charming and the apartment was a fitting place in which to end our European travels. The arrangements all worked perfectly. It was truly superior to the hotel D'Ingelterra next door where I have stayed sometimes on prior business visits. We now appreciate the full value of your recommendation and thank you for offering us this property. We were very happy clients and will no doubt return to your apartments."

"I just returned from 11 wonderful nights in Firenze, Italy. I decided on this trip to rent an apartment due to the length of my stay and chose to rent the Michaela, a studio apartment from ItalyPerfect.com. Lisa was so very helpful and professional throughout the planning stages and answered all my questions which were so much appreciated. The apartment is perfectly located in the fashion shopping district (which for me was not a good thing, but I kept my promise not to splurge and I didn’t) close to Via Tornabuoni, is about a ten minute walk to and from the Santa Maria Novella (SMN) train station and it's on a bus route as well and you can walk to all the major sites that Firenze has to offer. The apartment itself suited my needs perfectly as I was traveling solo. The apartment is fairly quiet for it being in a very busy thoroughfare. The apartment is very attractive, had a lovely welcoming basket of wine, chocolate, etc., the room was a good-size, very comfortable and it had everything I wanted with a modern bathroom. And if you’re wondering, the apartment building has an elevator, so no need to struggle with your luggage up the stairs. You can keep in touch with family and friends or get caught up on the latest headline news with easy access to the internet with the computer work station just outside your door. As Firenze happens to be my favorite destination in Italy I’m already thinking and planning my next trip to Italy and will definitely book my stay with italyperfect.com for all my future accommodations throughout Europe and especially Firenze and will definitely recommend using them to one an all."

"We absolutely loved the Strozzi apartment and plan to stay there again as soon as possible. We may not make it back until September,2010, but you will definitely hear from us well in advance of the trip, to reserve that marvelous apartment. Many, many thanks to you and your team at Italy Perfect for a memorable and satisfying visit to Florence."

"Thank you so much.  I really appreciate that.  The apartment was great.  Great area and everything perfect!  I recommended your site to some other parents that will be visiting their kids in Florence who are on the same study program w/my daughter and will as well to anyone else that I hear of travels coming up.  Thanks so much again!  If and when I return to Florence or to any of your other locations, I will definitely be in touch!"

"Just wanted to write you a quick note, to let you know how much we enjoyed our trip to Italy and especially our stay in Palazzo Santa Croce. The Paradiso apartment was perfectly located and the setup was exactly what we needed.  It was truly like coming home at the end of the day. Our only complaint was the noise from the piazza or from the restaurant next door. However, the enjoyment we got from sitting at the door [sort of shallow balcony] looking out at the piazza for the on-going activity was worth it. Our final evening, for our cooking demonstration, was thoroughly enjoyable. We wish we’d had it at the beginning of the trip, because the other guests had so much advice to share on things to do and see in the area.  Oh, well, there is always next time…. Thanks sincerely, for your assistance."
