Had a wonderful 3 day stay. Enjoyed the 30 min walk into the city and back on 2 of the days and took the bus the other day (easy To do) Had dinner in the restaurant on day of arrival and fillet steak was absolutely delicious; prices seemed very reasonable. Restaurant felt comfortable and unpretentious and service was excellent. Loved the double shower in our wet room. Only slight niggle was that by choosing a double room rather than a twin when asked on arrival, we missed out on the coffee pod machine that the twin rooms had. Arranged airport shuttle at time of booking and this was cheaper than a taxi and hassle free. Would definitely like to make a return visit.
Taxi driver found it difficult to find but the location is near trams and buses so very convenient and the Colusseum was an easy walk. Vatican walkable too. Trastervere is very lively so it was good to be away from the main drag and have some quieter locals to drop in to.
Generally OK stay. Temperature control in the room was impossible. The thermostat was set at 16C and the room temperature was 24C making it uncomfortable. Staff screwed up my airport taxi request and the 1st one could not accommodate my needs.
Kimama is a B & B situated in a quiet street in the Trastevere area of Rome.From the time we booked on Expedia, till the time we left, we received excellent attention from the owner, Rafaella. She first wrote to us asking our expected time of arrival, so that the room could be ready as soon as we checked in. Then on arrival, we were shown to our room immediately. Rafaella arrived in a few minutes, and she briefed us on how best to avail of the services and facilities in the room. She spent some time with us on telling us how to get around and what were the better eating places in the area (a huge number!).
We spent 4 days, and everyday the place was cleaned immaculately, the refrigerator and breakfast provisions were well stocked. Raff was available whenever we needed to ask something. On our last day there, Raff came to say goodbye, and settle the bill. Then, she was so accommodating and graceful as to do us an unprecedented favor. She dropped us to the Railway Station in her own car, and helped us to carry our bags on to the platform.

Ideally located for those wanting to walk to be within walking distance of Rome's main sites, this hotel in Trastavere was perfect for our family. A short 9 minute walk sees you close to the best market place, where you can grab breakfast before sightseeing. The hotel itself is newly rennovated and spotlessly clean. Beds are huge and extremely comfortable with very large rooms with high ceilings. To be honest, I couldn't fault it and the hosts are extremely hospitable and accommodating, with helpful local advice that makes for a faultless holiday. I would strongly recommend this wonderful guesthouse.
We wanted to stay away from the tourist jungle, yet close to the heart of Rome. Trastevere and Piazza Sant'Egidio was our perfect choice. There are 6 units in this multiple courtyard medieval complex. The unit we stayed was a double story room with double bed and bath on upper floor and sofa-bed with kitchenette(equipped with pots, dishes, and Bialetti espresso maker) in lower floor. It may feel small if you plan to stay inside long-term, but who does that in Rome when there are so many cool outdoor piazzas to hang out? If you prefer a four star hotel with room service this may not be for you because this is where locals reside in real time. We were greeted by hosts with a little girl riding a bike in the courtyard and her grandma who was fashionable and elegant. The hosts, Alessandro and Sabrina were approachable in their office when we needed them. They were very kind to suggest us good eateries in the area and arrange transportation to and from the airport.
Across the River Tiber, Trastevere is a well-established 'boho chic' quarter, full of local character. The patchwork of tiny, cobbled streets houses many bars, good restaurants and buzzing nightlife spots. There is also a treasure trove of medieval churches. In its own piazza, the beautiful Santa Maria in Trastevere has shimmering golden mosaics and was probably Rome's first Christian basilica, founded in 222 AD.
