Nice and clean. Upon arrival Adrian greeted us at the door. He provided us with a map of the city and the locations of the tourist site. He pointed out the kitchen that was for every guest to use. He provided us the cell phone number of the owner of the hotel. He was very helpful. Room was nice and clean. The only problem was the wi fi, off and then on and off again. The following morning we were meet by the owner of the hotel. He was very nice and helpful. Hotel was close to everything and was in walking distance for all site seeing. The Vatican was only a 10 minute walk from the hotel and mass was given by the Pope on wednesday at 930 am. The metro train was just round the block. All and all we had a great time. We give it a 9.5 rating.

Séjour parfait
Hotel situé à 200m du metro, très propre, quartier calme et bien fréquenté quelle que soit l'heure. Le gérant du B&B a été à notre disposition avec le sourire malgré notre arrivée tardive. Chambres silencieuses. Parfait

Wonderful b&b!
I can highly recomend Old Kitchen! The staff was very helpful and friendly. The place is very clean. The room was comfortable and the air condition worked a charm. Good breakfast with fresh croiasants, cheese, fruit, juice, yoghurt coffe and tea. You could use the kitchen throughout the day.

Home away from home - a great experience
Olde Kitchen Vatican is a fantastic base when visiting Rome, with the Vatican less than 1 km away by foot and metro station Ottavio even closer. The b&b is in very good condition and our room was spacious with high ceiling and a nice bathroom en suite (with a shower spotlight changing colour - a quirky feature indeed). The air-con was easy to operate and cooled us down after long days in the heat outside. Landlords Simone and Annette are very service-minded, helped out booking us a taxi from the airport, gave us a briefing marking out bus lines, good restaurants etc on a map that we got to keep and even let us choose our favourite kind of croissant for breakfast (delivered every morning from the local bakery). The only drawback would be hard beds, but this can easily be fixed by adding mattress toppers. May we suggest a visit to IKEA, Simone and Annette..?
