What Past Guests Are Saying
Outstanding Holiday Experience
The apartment had the 'wow' factor - it was beautifully appointed with all the modern conveniences, yet situated in an old established building minutes from the Spanish Steps. The kids (14yrs & 11yrs) loved the bunks and had their own bathroom facilities. The cooking facilities were all there but there were good restaurant options (which we used) close by. We walked everywhere from the apartment (no public transport needed) and it was great to come 'home' and relax in such comfortable and well appointed surroundings. Rosie the 'greeter' was wonderfully helpful and the availability of Stefano (the driver) made life very easy indeed. Would (and, indeed, have) unreservedly recommend this apartment to friends and colleagues and would return tomorrow, myself, ... if that was an option!
Just as advertised - We Didn't Want to Leave
Great location, clean, spacious, and nicely furnished apartment that matched the online description exactly. The greeter, Rosie, was lovely. Beds were comfortable, there was plenty of room for our clothes and other stuff. We were able to spread out and enjoy our home away from home - parents and teenage daughter each had the necessary space.
We didn't use the kitchen beyond simple snacks and breakfasts. Appliances (dishwasher, washer, dryer) all worked well. There are ample guidebooks that we used as well as our own. The showers/bathrooms are much smaller than us, so if that's an issue for you, be aware. They are typical size for Italy. Water pressure was excellent and there was always hot water.
The apartment is an easy flight of stairs up from street level.
We recommend the restaurant right across the street - Sofia's. The amatriciana is delicious! Pizza Ciro right down the street on Via de Mercede is a convenient pizza place. The grocery store is an easy walk, and there is another wonderful retaurant called That's amore right next to the Despar (grocery store). Gregory's Jazz Bar is a 30-second walk from the front door and offers live music at night beginning at 10:30.
We walked everywhere as the apartment is very centrally located. There are two metro stops very close that we did use one day.
Pat at Italy Perfect was incredibly helpful and supportive, especially when my computer "ate" all my previous emails and I'd lost all the necessary information! The driver she recommends, Stefano, was prompt, friendly, and courteous. Although you can take the train from FCO airport into Rome, the convenience of a driver can't be overstated.
Rome was clean, safe, and gorgeous. Learn a few key phrases and you'll have no problems at all.
Sabini was a wonderful home away from home. We would stay there again, and we would definitely choose Pat's company for future travel!
Portland, Oregon, USA
Great location, center of Rome, comfortable apartment.
We had a great experience renting Sabini, the process was simple and they answered all of my questions. We used the very good driver they recommended to get from FCO to the apt. (Stefano), he called our greeter Rosie, and coordinated our meeting with her at the apt.. Rosie was very friendly and polite. We called her twice during our stay with questions, she was very helpful. I used the printer once to print passes, it was low on ink, but it worked, and we mentioned this to Rosie when we left. Sabini has a nice layout, ideal for a family of four. We made dinner in the kitchen several times, & it was well equipped. It only lacked a collander, but that was not a big deal. Everything worked perfectly. The beds were comfortable, & we liked having two bathrooms. We never ran out of hot water, and had no plumbing problems other than slow drains, which I've heard is common in Rome. We didn't ever use the outdoor space, it was very dark and felt more like a utility space, not the terrace we were hoping for, which was the only thing we didn't like about the apartment. Everything else was as expected or better. I can't review the aC because we didn't need it. There was typical big city noise, but not bad for being in the center of Rome. We liked the metal security shutters on the windows that allowed airflow and privacy at night, but that couldn't be opened from the outside (without making an extreme amount of noise). The apartment is on the 2nd floor (Euro 1st), and has two windows perfect for people watching on the street. We could hear a choir practicing across the street through an open window on our first day, and it was lovely. We highly recommend dining at Sofia across the street, nice couple, great food, wine & not a tourist trap. We would stay at Sabini again, and would recommend it to friends, as long as a terrace wasn't a necessity. Perfect, central location and we walked everywhere. Great experience overall!

Thank you, happy you had a great experience staying at the Sabini apartment. The Italy Perfect Team.
I stayed here with my husband and 3 year old for a week in December 2012.
Pros: fantastic location. We walked everywhere from there - even the vatican probably took 30mins to the vactican, but all others places were easy (spanish steps less than 5; trevi fountain 10mins; piazza navrona 15 mins). So were were close to everything, but it was a little bit quieter and seemed further away from everything, which was great at the end of the day.
The apartment - was clean and modern, with full easy to use kitchen, dryer and washing machine - which was great when travelling with a child. All in all a good little apartment, and would recommend it.
The apartment is also only one short flight of stairs from the entry foyer
Italy Perfect - have been great to deal with from booking; to arriving; to after service (gave them some feedback re towels; kitchen (see below) - would recommend them. We also used paris perfect and they were great too.
- you need to ask for extra towels - we didn't know we had to ask for additional towels, so only got one each, which wasn't great, but apparently you can ask for additional towels when you book.
- check want utensils are in the kitchen before you shop if you are going to cook. I made assumptions abut some basics, which weren't there. I have mentioned these to italy perfect.
- you are provided an electricity allowance, which I wasn't aware of. We used the dryer and washing machine a couple of times and didn't use this allowance up. so was more than adequate.
- the second bedroom does not have hanging space - the main bedroom has a huge cupboard, so was not a problem.
- bathroom sizes - clean, great water pressure. I don't wish to offend anyone, but if you are obese you may have difficulty fitting into the showers. They were more than big enough for me and my husband (I consider us normal size - size 12; size 34 waist), but we couldn't help thinking that if a couple of friends of ours had joined us, which they were originally planning to do, they would not have fit in the showers (these friends are obese), Don't wish to offend 0 I just wanted to provide this tip so people would not be disappointed.
Response from Italy Perfect - 01/18/2013
Thank you for being our valued guest. We are happy you liked the great location, the apartment and our service. Your Reservation Agreement and Confirmation documents indicated that one set of towels per person is provided. We are sorry you didn't order extra sets of towels; we asked several times that you complete the Arrival Checklist where the Extra Towels option was offered, unfortunately you didn't request any. The shower boxes are standard Italian size, it is true that they would be a tight fit for someone who is obese. The owner has been advised about the missing colander and tongs which should have been in the kitchen, sorry they were missing, they'll be replaced, thanks for letting us know. The information about the utility allowance was provided to you in many ways: on the Sabini webpage under both the Details tab and the Price tab, in your Reservation Agreement, the Arrival Instructions and the Italy Perfect Vacation Rental Manual you received. Thank you from the Italy Perfect Team.
Centrally located, this charming two bedroom apartment exceeded our expectations by far. Traveling overseas with two children ages 5 and 8 is not always easy and this spacious apartment provided us with everything we could possibly need. Apartment Sabini, is located just minutes away from the Spanish Steps, upscale shops, taxi cab stand, two supermarkets, and many wonderful restaurants making our stay a memorable one. Additionally, we were able to sleep comfortably during the hot summer heat wave with the air condition. Lastly, Pat Byrne, owner of Italy Perfect, provided us with incredibly detailed information on Rome -- restaurants, shops, sights, etc. She served as our personal concierg -- she isincredibly detail oriented and responded to all my inquiries in a very timely manner. We will certainly choose to stay in apartment Sabini and use Italy Perfect again for future visits!!!
Great Location. Modern & Spacious!
This Villa was Excellent. The Greeter "Rosie" was prompt, curteous, friendly and very helpful. The unit was extremely bright and spotless! Nice Modern decor and very spacious. We loved the kitchen and living areas. The 4 of us felt very comfortable there. There were 2 excellent restaurants right across the street. one for a cappicino or quick bite/take out, and the other was a fantastic restaurant - best ravioli and fresh pasta's !! The Unit was walking distance to everything!! Lol. We walked to the Vatican, Colleseum, it was seconds to the Trevi fountain, and lots of shops and restaurants. Also - the literature that Italy Perfect provided was very helpful. The room included several travel books and a printer .Will definately stay there again, on our next trip to Rome! Thank You Italy Perfect!
Italy Perfect Sabini apartment by Spanish Steps
Sabini apartment was perfect. It was exactly as displayed in your ad. The location was great. 5 minute walk to metro and Spanish Steps, 5-10 minutes to Trevi Fountain. Restaurants everywhere. Our greeter was on call if we needed her, which we did one time and she was very responsive. The a/c felt wonderful and cooled the place down very quickly which was great because we had 90 degree weather in July. I would recommend using Italy Perfect because it took a lot of the guess work out of everything. The information which we received on phones, utilities, restaurants, tours, etc. was so informative. I would definitely recommend Italy Perfect and will use your company again on my next trip to Italy which I hope will be within the next year or two.

Location, style and comfort in Rome!
Our family spent 4 nights at the Sabini in July 2012. Rome was so busy, and very hot: we loved having a convenient city oasis. Plenty of stylish space for our family, including a separate bathroom for the kids (a real plus). The windows must be fairly new - no street noise at all when closed. Streamlined, sleek new kitchen with basic cooking gear & a very large refrigerator. Comfortable living-dining room with plenty of seating for our family.
The apartment is well located on a quieter street just a block from the very busy Spanish steps and an easy walk to the metro. Right across the street is a bar/tabac for your morning coffee, plus a nice restaurant for supper. Many many shops and restaurants in a 5 minute stroll from the apartment - it was hard to decide where to eat!
We walked all over, and used the metro to get out to the Colosseum and Vatican City. The apartment had lots of guidebooks and maps too, supplementing our own. It was easy meeting our greeter, Rosie, and she did a great job of showing us how all the appliances work.
We would definitely use Italy Perfect again and recommend it to friends as well.

Thank you! So pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Perfect in Rome
The Sabini apartment was perfect for our stay in Rome. We are a family of four, with two pre-teens. The location was terrific, with restaurants, coffee bars, and gelato close by. The Spanish Steps is just a few blocks away, where you can pick up a taxi for a short ride to other parts of town. The apartment itself was very clean and safe. The beds were very comfortable. With two bathrooms - no fighting! Having a clothes washer and dryer was important, as well as a nice kitchen for breakfast prep. The greeter was very helpful. The host provided guidebooks and local recommendations. Overall, a great place to stay. We would definitely stay there again.

Loved the Sabini!
My family and I stayed at the Sabini apartment over the Easter Holiday. It was wonderful. The apartment was modern, sparkling clean and had everything you would need. There were also helpful suggestions and instructions all written in english. It was in a great location -- we walked everywhere. It was also very close to the metro, which we used all the time. We got a weekly pass for the metro and it worked out great. The street had some action, but as soon as you closed the windows in the living room, it was extremely quiet. There was a nice grocery store around the corner, as well as a terrific place to get cappuccino,espresso,and snacks on the next street called "Trinita Bar". They were so nice there and remembered us and what we ordered from the first time we went in -- it's right near the Trinita Church. Pat Byrnes from Italy Perfect recommended a driver, and Stefano was right there when we got off the plane with my name. When he took us back to the airport, he was punctual. Also, our greeter was waiting for us outside the apartment when we arrived and she showed us everything in the apartment. She was wonderful. Also, the rental company we used -- Italy Perfect -- was very professional. Pat Byrnes was very efficient and helpful. You should feel very comfortable renting from this company. I couldn't have had a better time in Rome. We will definitely stay at the Sabini apartment again if I am ever lucky enough to go back to Rome.
My wife and I along with our three daughters stayed in the Sabini apartment in Rome in March 2012. We were very pleased with our entire experience with Italy Perfect. The apartment was clean and well maintained, and the reservation staff as well as the local property assistant were professional and took care of all our needs. We highly recommend Italy Perfect and look forward to staying in another Italy Perfect property soon.
