    Great location. Simone and Annette were really helpful, by email before our arrival and on arrival. They were there to greet us, gave recommendations on places to visit and eat. The accommodation was spacious, very clean and comfortable.

    It was amazing. The room was lovely, the place was quirky, the owners Annette and Simon were wonderful and friendly. We would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a stress free, easy going accommodation. There were quite a few reasonably priced cafe/bars in the same road and the metro was just around the corner.

    For our first visit to Rome this was an ideal spot, we enjoyed walking around and finding something new around each corner, we even walked to the centre each day as it wasn’t that far away and it was a great way to learn your surroundings! The room was the perfect size for a long weekend, the bathroom was clean and the shower was excellent. The area felt really safe and we had no worries as it took 3 keys to get to the b&b. The little kitchen was great, lovely juice and yoghurts, the best was the delicious fresh chocolate croissants waiting for us each morning! What a lovely touch! The hosts couldn’t have been more helpful if they tried, every message they replied extremely quickly and were so useful! Sadly we didn’t get to meet them properly due to bad timings but they keep a wonderful b&b and would happily recommend this place to anyone planning on going to Rome! Also a shout out to Adrian who helped us With all our silly questions!

    We had a fantastic stay at Old Kitchen. Simone and Annette met us on arrival and gave us some fantastic tips and restaurant recommendations. We can definitely recommend nearby L'Archetto, and La Fraschetta in Trastevere. The accommodation had everything that we needed for a base, and is situated in an amazing traditional Italian apartment block. Fresh croissants arrive at about 7.30 each morning for breakfast, courtesy of the bakery downstairs. The fridge is well stocked with cheeses, juices, milk, yoghurts and fruit. There is also bread and fresh coffee courtesy of the bean-to-cup coffee machine. There's also tea available for tea drinkers. Old Kitchen is really well situated for getting to The Vatican City for early starts. It's about a 10-15 minute walk, and was perfect for us. The nearest Metro station, Ottaviano, is about 5 minutes round the corner. We got the bus from Ciampino airport to Termini station in Rome (45 minutes, 9 euros return ticket), then the Metro to the accommodation (1.5 euros). For the rest of our trip/sightseeing, we didn't use public transport at all, we just walked everywhere. We would definitely recommend Old Kitchen and would happily stay there again.
