Our Guest Reviews
We had a great time, the Italy Perfect material was all good, we had no problem whatsoever and instead had a lot of fun in a great location.
Bellina a Beautiful Apartment
What a wonderful choice we made when we decided to stay in the Bellina Apartment in Rome. Bellina is centrally located in a small cobble stoned street between the Spanish Steps and Piazza Del Popolo in an almost car free area. We found it had walking access to most major tourist points of interest and there are two train stations within 100 mtrs. There is a taxi rank in the Piazza Del Popolo which we made use of to get to major attractions like the Colosseum and Vatican city however making use of a map we found it easy to walk back to our apartment from those locations. Well priced restaurants are abundant in the local area as is the shopping, both highend and affordable.
The apartment itself is very comfortable and we were surprised at how roomy it was, there was only two of us however it would have suited four people equally as comfortably, if you were happy to make use of the sofa bed in the lounge room. Bellina was well equipped with everything we could think of to make our stay enjoyable. We made good use of the air-conditioner during our summer stay in Rome, we followed the instructions to turn it off whenever we left the apartment and found the apartment remained cool upon our return. Our daily needs were met with access to the local supermarket a couple of streets away and there was a small convenience store next door.
We don' t think you could ask for anything more than what the apartment Bellina offers and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to experience an authentic, stress free and comfortable stay in Rome.

Perfect Little Apartment
The Bellina is a perfect little apartment. It's in a great location. Walking distance to everything you want to see in Rome and more. It's perfect for two people. More might be difficult since there's no door on the bedroom. This was our third stay in the Bellina and we will stay there again. There's a great little gelato store right across the street too!
[Thank you Robin, we look forward to welcoming you again! The Italy Perfect Team]
Bellini apartment in Rome
Perfect location, and very comfortable for our 4 day stay. Close to metro and busses, as well as being able to walk where we wanted. Plenty of small outdoor restaurants within a few blocks. Host was very prompt and available for any questions. Would not hesitate to request this again if we have another opportunity to visit Rome.
[Thank you Ed! The Italy Perfect Team]
We were very happy with our stay
We found the apartment to be just as shown online. The location was very convenient, especially for restaurants. In general, we seemed to be in the higher end shopping and restaurant area. The "tourist" part of Rome is pretty compact and from this apartment it is about a 30 minute walk to the Vatican and Colosseum, and less than that for many other amazing sites. You are about 10 -15 minutes from subway terminals.
Something that helped us to identify good restaurants is that we would pull up Google Earth and look at what restaurants were close to us. We then could look them up on Trip Advisor and see how they were rated. It saved us some walking and helped us enjoy a lot of great restaurants. A couple to try are La Buca Di Ripetta and Osteria St. Ana. A place that is good to be aware of is the Carrefour Express Supermarket on Via Vittoria, a few blocks away.
All in all we had a great trip and were happy with the apartment and the service of Italy Perfect. They provided a sense of confidence to the experience of renting an apartment which we had never done before.

Traveled to Rome with my mom and my sister for 5 days. Our apartment was lovely and a perfect "home away from" after a long day of sightseeing. A quick 5 minute walk to the Spanish Steps and Borghese Gardens. The bed was comfortable for my 80 year old mother and the sofa bed was very comfortable too! Our greeter was knowledgeable and answered all of our questions and left us with her cell phone number in case we needed anything. The apartment was small for three but much bigger than a hotel and only about half the cost. I would absolutely go back!
[Thank you Julie, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay! The Italy Perfect Team]
We stayed at the Bellina in Rome and loved the location! It was our first time renting an apartment and Italy Perfect was excellent. Pat was wonderful helping us with all our arrangements. She recommended Rocco from Rome Value Transfer which went smoothly. He was waiting at the train station as planned. Beatrice was our greeter and couldn’t be nicer. She gave us an excellent, informative tour of the apartment, explained our surroundings, and made us feel at home. The apartment looks exactly as it is represented on the website. Everything was in working order, it was extremely comfortable and in a superb location. Italy Perfect sends out a packet of resource material that made the trip easier. I highly recommend using Italy Perfect. We will definitely use this company in the future.

Bellina Apartment Rome
You couldn't ask for a better location in Rome than the Bellina Apartment. It's right off the Via del Corso and close to major sights such as the Spanish Steps. Borghese Gallery the Forum and Colosseum.
The Via del Corso is one of the main drags in the city and in a very upscale shopping district, so if you want to shop, you're in the right place.
Beatrice the greeter is extremely nice. We liked her a lot.
There is an organic and natural foods store on the Via Vittoria nearby that has a restaurant in the back. There I had the best meal I have ever had in my life, pasta with cream and black pepper sauce and fried squash blossoms on top, a magnificent salad, and an exceptional glass of wine. Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the store, but Beatrice the greeter would probably know.
We rented an apartment in Rome because we are thinking about living abroad and wanted to see what it's like to live in Italy. Now that we have experienced that, I think the living accommodations in Italy, even in nice areas, are more rustic than what we are used to in the United States. So for someone who is used to that, I would absolutely recommend Italy Perfect as a rental agency. The service at Italy Perfect has been exceptional and Lisa has been very professional, efficient, and gracious.
[Thank you so much Tina, we are pleased you had a wonderful time! The Italy Perfect Team]
