"Residence Candia - Rome, Italy"
We loved our stay! The great manager gave us a true "Room With a View!" We could see The Vatican from our windows. We were comfortable and felt secure and safe. Would stay there again and again if we had the chance!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, NOT 2 stars."
The location was good, only blocks from the vatican, and the vatican museum. Parking was good, neigborhood, had nice places. Room was EXTREMELY small. If you, were a larger person, you would have had a hard time using the restroom. Staff, some were very helpful. I think, it was overpriced, but maybe not for Rome.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very friendly, good size, close to metro"
This place had a very friendly staff. The location is nearly across the street from the metro line for easy access to other parts of Rome. Walking distance to Vatican. Clean room. Convenient to have kitchen space, table and a lil extra space.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
wonderful hotel. we enjoyed our stay. we meet some really nice Enghish speaking guest.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff a this apartment hotel was terrific. Very helpful. We had problems checking in online for our flight back to the states and the desk staff had us use their email address for our documents and even printed everything out for us. We stayed in the one bedroom Penthouse. Don't let Penthouse confuse you... It WAS on the top floor but that was the […] only resemblence to a Penthouse. The furniture, although very clean, was cheap. The kicten was VERY small but efficient.The bedroom was very clean but again, Very small. The best thing was you could hear the Vacican church bells from the room. The is a lovely terrance where we enjoyed our morning coffee. They advertize that you can see the Vactican Dome from our room but really that is a bit of a stratch. There is a great market around the corner so you can walk to but groceries and and the surrounding area seemed quite safe. I did like being able to make some meals there, especially breakfast. All in all, it was a nice experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location - Small, clean accomodations"
The location of the hotel was great... 10-15 minute walk to the Vatican Museum and St Peters Basilica, plus the Cipro Metro station 5 minutes away. We were on the 5th floor (Penthouse) level that included small balcony. The room was tight for 5 people, kind of like a large RV where all the conveniences were there, but in a compressed area. The beds […] were comfortable, the bathroom well equipped, well lighted, lots of hot water in a decent shower. When it comes down to it, we spent most of our time touring Rome, so the room suited our needs very well. While not particularly fancy, it met our requirements... I recommend the Residence Candia for budget conscious travelers that want a decent place to stay while they see the sites of Rome. You can't beat the convenience of the location.

"Great Place to stay with a large or small group!!"
Our group of 9; 3 adults, 4 teenagers, and 2 younger children rented 2 apartments at the Residence Candia 2 weeks ago. I was paranoid making a reservation online for such a large group, but we were very pleasantly surprised with this hotel!!!! The apartments are large, and very well stocked with everything you need for sleeping, showering, storing your […] clothes, and cooking! Every apartment has a coffee pot, pots and pans, large refrigertor, stove, lots of dressers and closet space. The air conditioning, and the elevator were operating perfectly the whole week we were here! The staff is very friendly and helped us with getting connections with tours, using the busing and metro system, and calling a taxi at 4am! It is in a very safe residencial neighborhood with a great pizza place, laundry, kebab place, market, grocery store within blocks. It is 3 blocks from the entrance to the Vatican Museum and one block from the metro station. Stay here..you will love it!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel and Area"
The hotel was nice and the staff helpful. It's literally 2 blocks away from the Vatican Museum but a bit far from the Ottaviano Metro stop (about 15 minutes walking). The hotel was nice and indeed had a kitchen but everything was really crammed in and not a lot of space to fit it all so it wasn't the most comfortable but it was very clean. The surrounding […] neighborhood was great. Across the street is a wonderful restaurant that we ate dinner at every night called Piacere Molise. The staff was so kind and the food excellent. Recommended. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Residence Candia overall decent value"
Located well near Cipro Station. Good for family stay or multiple need units. The staff is friendly accept for the older french woman that works the desk on occasion during the day. Towels and bedding will only be changed on the 4th day of your stay and even then you have to remind them. But all in all very satisfied. Family of 4 2 adults 2 small c […] hildren. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked this room based on the rave reviews from prior guests and the decent price for a quad room in Rome. The elevator was broken making it difficult to maneuver heavy luggage up the narrow stone stairwell. While my family of 4 (including 3 adults and 1 teen) did not mind sleeping in the bunk beds, we were extremely uncomfortable with the faulty […] air-conditioning which kept the room sweltering hot. We reported the problem, but got the impression that they knew about it already just like the no free internet in room. My college son had to submit online assignments during his vacation. H was able to go into the lobby which was the only place that the internet did work. However the lobby was filthy and dark with no furniture and resembled a construction zone, so he sat on a step and managed to submit his assignments using this extremely slow internet. We opened the windows (since it was cooler outside than inside), only to get a nice view of the nearby neighbors behind us looking out their windows down at us, I was appalled to see a tiny black bug crawling up the wall next to me while in bed. I later had a rash on my legs. It was a spacious apartment which included a full kitchen, but the overall appearance was dingy. The customer service was poor. When the only light bulb went out on the 20+ foot bedroom ceiling, they handed us a light bulb which we had to replace ourselves using the tall ladder we found in the kitchen after almost falling from top bunk to reach it.

"Well located to Vatican City"
Spacious, self-catering apartment; friendly and helpful staff; reasonable rates; well situated for walking to Vatican with easy access to Hop on-Hop off bus.Genuine Expedia guest review
Recently remodeled, some things wern't finished but overall excellent service and good loation for access to the Vatican.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Bravo!! A delightful stay!!"
The hotel's facade is non-descript (save for the large vertical sign) but it betrays the delight on the inside. The staff was friendly enough but don't expect overflowing warmth--hey, they're Romans!! Our party of five room was delightfully accommodative and bright with windows out to Via Candia. It was not only CLEAN but it smelled clean--not bleached […] cleaned, but rather a true sense that this room was well sanitized. Our room accommodated us very comfortably with three bedrooms and two bathrooms(each with a stand up shower). The highlight was the kitchen. A galley style set-up it was clean, neat and well equipped with modern appliances and just about anything you would need to prepare meals. It also served as the common area, absent a living room. The small grocery store around the corner had all we needed to prepare a wonderful dinner and breakfast on our last night/morning. (Dish detergent and scrub pads are not supplied, though dish towels are.) The Candia's location was the rival to the room. Perfectly situated a block or so from the Cipro Metro stop and about a 5 minute walk to the entrance to the Vatican Museums. St .Peter's square is about a 15 minute walk. A couple of cafes are on the corner for a late night espresso and "cornetto" TIP: The best way to get there is to take the van transport from the airport (shared ride EUR15p.p.) We look forward to staying here again and recommend it without hesitation! Grazie a tutti a Candia!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Vatican"
The hotel was very convenient to the Vatican and a piazza with ok restaurants.. We took the open tour buses for our travels and they pick up at Vatican so getting around was not so bad. Pretty close to the Metro too. It is a little older of a hotel but it looks like they are doing some updates. Clean and staff were very nice. We had the studio and it […] was small but ok for two. Walls are thin and it seems to be a favorite of college students. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Residence Candia Rome, Italy"
The front desk (I wish I had gotten his name), was most helpful and fun to work with! The apartment was more that we had expected; we even had two bathrooms and three bedrooms. A/C worked great, we were very close to the Vatican where we took advantage of the Friday evening opening. Also really enjoyed a close by restaurant with wonderful service, food […] and wine. Close to the train and bus as well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was located extremely close to Vatican City and our favorite Ristorante (Mama's). Pictures online were deceiving making the rooms look bigger than they actually were. The bathrooms are extremely small so if you are a larger person you should not pick this hotel as you will have a hard time maneuvering in the shower and toilet area. For us the […] location totally made the stay as we spend very little time in our hotel when in Rome. I have been to Rome at least 50 times and this rates about the middle of the road for hotels we have stayed at, but for location it is excellent. I didn’t find the staff very friendly but in Rome I always find this hit and miss at hotels. Price was steep for the size of room but again I believe you are paying for location and not for the hotel itself. Courtyard is nice if you are staying for an extended time.

"would go to hotel again"
Staying at RESIDENCE CANDIA made everything so easy to get around on foot, so close to VATICAN AND TRAIN STATION!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location - below average hotel"
Very good location close to Vatican City but the hotel was more like a dormitory than a hotel room. Very loud and our family all slept in bunk beds that completely filled the room.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Close to the Vatican"
This hotel is very close to the Metro and the Vatican Musuem. We loved having a small kitchen to cook in and there was a grocery store close by. The only issues we had with Residence Candia were a staff member who was rude and each night there was a large school group that came in and were loud. Overall, we were happy with the accomadations and location. […] We would use this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The Residence Candia is located right next to the Vatican wall and a five minute easy walk to an underground station. It is very convenient and could not be more centrally located. Great restaurants nearby and easy places for breakfast. The hotel itself was a delight. You could easily sleep 10 in the room, and it seemed to go on forever. Nice and clean […] and comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful when our 9 year old son left his backpack in the airport :-) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Holy Week visit"
No complaints here. The room was comfortable and clean. We really used it as just a place to rest our heads, so I didn't get a chance to check out the rooftop terrace or any of the other features. The location is good if you don't mind being away from the historic center, I'd say it's the next best thing. Make sure to check out Old Bridge gelateria […] in Piazza Risorgimento as well as Dino and Tony's restaurant. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"St. Peter's Right Around the Corner"
The room was more like a tiny flat. Everything was fairly standard, and the kitchenette was useful. The location was convenient; only a 5 minute walk from the metro. There was a small grocery nearby too, as was the entrance to the Vatican Museum and St. Peter's Square. Would stay again when returning to Rome.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location few blocks from Museum Vatican entance. Loads of places to eat in the near area. Metropolitana underground is about 3 blocks. Only thing was the internet was very weak had to stand in lobby but not an issue enough to criticise a well run hotel. Staff are great very helpful speak english Maps are supplied and the higher studios are great […] rooms with fully stocked kitchen plates, pots etc to save money. Supermarket on next block Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
5 minute walk to the entrence to the Vatican. 15 minutes to go Be in the Popal audience. Wonderful local ( not touristy) shops lovely people at hotel and neighborhood. 2 blocks to a nice clean grocery store to utilize the kitchenette at the rooms. Both tourist shopping and non tourist shopping great prices. Will be back next year! Expedia helped with […] a couple very nice tours. Hotel personel very helpful making language not a problem for arrangements. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Residence Candia in Rome - close to transportation"
The hotel was close to the Metro and the local Catholic Church. The local food stores made it easy to prepare meals for the evening. The staff was friendly and very helpful. A great area to walk in the evenings.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place, kind stuff!"
Residencia Candia is a very simple, but very well located, place to stay. The rooms have a functional kitting and the stuff is great and helpful. Tip: ask to stay in the building located in the back of the property - much more silent!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice to have a kitchenette!"
A great location for the Vatican Museum, bakeries, pastry shops and quaint restaurants. The kitchenette made preparing small meals and coffee a great option. The room was small, but clean, and the bed was comfy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very close to Vatican City and Metro"
We were very happy with the location of the residence, it was walking distance to the Vatican City and two metro stops. Hotel provided local Rome map with their location and other points of interest in Rome. Room had mini kitchen - electric stove, safe, microwave, sink, dishes, utensils, etc. Rooms can serve as apartments for those wishing to stay […] for extended periods of time.

"Great family stay for Rome."
Always a nice stay. The folks are nice, the place is clean, parking and close to Vadican and metro station. Gonna go back and my friends all stay there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Would stay again"
Clean hotel. Beds were hard, but I'm told that's typical of Europe. (They were like that on our cruise as well). Room looked similar to pictures. We had a little difficulty opening our door - it's mainly done with a key, not a door knob. We had a small kitchen we didn't use as we were only there for one night. Shower is tiny, but they provided towels, […] soap, shower gel and shower caps for each guest. I didn't like that the radiator was right between the bathroom door and the toilet. You had to be careful when you walked by it. The staff was nice and most spoke English. They held our luggage for us the next day when we checked out so that we could go to the Vatican. We were able to walk there (with a 6 yr old) in less than 10 minutes. They also called a taxi for us which came within 5 minutes. I would definitely stay here again.

"Rome at Christmas"
The apartments were spacious and clean. The location is great. there are fine affordable restaurants in the neighbourhood. Best of all the area is not touristy , even though it is so close to the Vatican If you are looking for plush furniture or carpeting this is not the place for you. You probably will not find it in Rome unless you are willing to […] spend tons of money.We spent most of the day out ,but when we came back the place was warm and the beds were comfortable...what more can one ask for We did not cook....but there was a well equipped kitchen. The staff is efficient....overall this place has a nice ambiance of Rome Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Above and Beyond...."
We had a wonderful time in Rome and it was made all the more pleasurable by the staff at Residence Candia. They went above and beyond to make our stay so great. I had reserved two rooms for the six of us and they gave us a three-bedroom apartment with two baths and a kitchen at no extra charge. They were instrumental in obtaining tickets to the Midnight […] Mass at the Vatican on Christmas Eve, suggesting good restaurants, giving directions to the Metro, bus, and places to shop. When we arrived, the heat in our apt. was not on and within minutes, the maintenance crew had the heat up and running. Everything was spotless and cleaned every day. We would definitely stay there again, AND they are bilingual, which was a huge plus for these Americans who don't speak Italian, but learned a little along the way!

"Convenient to Vatican"
naGenuine Expedia guest review
the hotel was great only problem was miss understanding on our upgrade was told 15 euro each person total would be 60 euro and they wanted to charge us 60 euro for each night which was way more than agreed we paid the 60 euro and left . they were very nice and helpful with everything...no problemsGenuine Expedia guest review
excellent choice for location. hotel staff very helpfull. it was just what we needed to see rome.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was clean and well cared for. As in most hotels in Rome the room was small but adequate. It had a small kitchen which was helpful and a small elevator. There was a delightful rooftop garden, which I'm sure must be used a lot in warmer weather. The staff was friendly and helpful and spoke English. The location was fine, just a few blocks from […] the entrance to the Vatican museum. There were a couple of small grocery stores and a bakery nearby which was helpful since we had breakfast in our room every morning. The beds were typical of Rome and were very comfortable. Daily maid service was provided. My only complaint was that the size of the shower was small and a large person would have to squeeze into it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Big-city no-frills bargain"
Inexperienced family members were shocked by extremely small rooms; demanded (and received) replacement towels more often than every four days. It is in fact, though, a good bargain for a big city and close to hop-on, hop-off tour buses. Has some parking spaces. Immediate neighborhood not wonderful but okay. As an experienced traveler, I have already […] recommended it to a young couple in Tuscany who were headed for Rome, as clean, safe, and convenient: all one could ask for the money.

"It's Your home away from Home"
The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. The location was just footsteps to the vatican, shops and most importantly an ATM. Eventhough it was so close to everything it was very quiet and peaceful. The room itself had everything, it was like home away from home, like an apartment. The cleaning ladies were also excellent and super nice. […] I will recommend this location to all my friends and family. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beware of rooms overlooking courtyard"
Overall stay was satisfactory. Unfortunately we were in a room that opened (window) onto the central courtyard of the new building - this was used for group gatherings - early morning and evening - so noise level was extremely high at those times: Sunday morning before 8 am and Sunday night after we had turned our lights out to go to sleep - it was […] early, but we were getting up at 4 am the next day.

"Good hotel near Vatican City..."
This unassuming hotel is well located near Vatican City, with easy access to public transportation. The room was clean, although a bit small... We had free internet access and our room had a small kitchen. Good value for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review

Very close to the Vatican!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Our First Trip to Rome"
Our original room was very nice and comfortable until the 8:00 AM construction began in the room directly attached and on the wall of our bed. Drilling, pounding and loud talking. When I alsked about it at the desk they gladly moved up to another room and apologized, but the room was half the size of our original room which we had paid a higher price […] for. Location was great. A nice little cafe across the street for breakfast. Felt safe and would recommend this but inquire aobut construction upon check in. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The location was terrific for us."
We are so glad we stayed at Residence Candia. May not be the best neighborhood, but close to the Metro, shops, restaurants, people who live and work in the area. But still felt comfortable walking around. Walking distance to the Vatican. Residence Candia was clean and roomy. Bathroom and kitchen modern. Staff was very helpful and accomodating. We would […] stay there again. The location was terrific for us. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was what I expected. The rooms were small but very clean. The staff at the hotel was very friendly and helpful. At check in they gave us a map of the central part of Rome which proved to be very useful. The location was perfect. To get to the Vatican took us about 10 minutes walk. The hotel does not have a dinning room but there are plenty […] of places to eat within minutes of the hotel. The Residence Candia isn't glitz and glammer but if you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel with a great location and friendly staff I would recommend it. If I ever get the chance to return to Rome I would willingly stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel. Great location - close to two metro stops. Cozy room and nice people, BUT - and this is a big one - they do NOT change the towels. We weren't thrilled with this. They said if you had a long stay, they would wash them once a week.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
