Great location plus value

My husband and I spent 9 nights in apartment 19 for a special birthday trip. Lamberto, the owner, was friendly, professional, helpful and spoke great English. Bread, eggs, butter and milk, along with a welcome bottle of Chianti, were most appreciated. There were also some basic cooking supplies and spices which we didn't use....didn't go to Rome to cook!! He took the time to explain how to use the public transportation to some of the more unusual sites that were on our list to see. He also recommended restaurants and nightclubs and some shopsthat we asked about.
The apartment was extremely clean and very comfortable. The beds were comfortable, the hot water plentiful and strong in the shower. While I wouldn't classify this as a luxury apartment, it was certainly above average. The value for quality received was exceptional. We even kept the apartment while we flew to Sicily for 3 nights so we could travel with overnight bags and leave our big suitcases behind. While we were gone maid service was scheduled and we returned to fresh linens and a clean apartment! All cleaning and the reliable wifi were included in the rental price....no additions to the quoted lease price at all.
Finally, you just can't beat the location. Trastevere is the best neighborhood in Rome as far as I'm concerned, with definitely the best restaurants. While we went to the historic center and Vatican and all of the usual sites, returning to Trastevere every evening before dinner was always highly anticipated.
I don't think we will stay in a hotel again when traveling abroad - our Apt. 19 experience was a great one, and I highly recommend it to all.
