"Perfect Apartment 90 seconds from the Vatican"
This hotel was spacious, clean, well equipped, 1 minute from the subway and a 2-minute walk from the Vatican. Free, gated parking was available and the hotel had an elaborate video surveillance system.

"Clean, cool and free parking"
We needed a three day layover in Rome before flying out on short notice. Not only was Residence Candia available but it was everything we needed. First of all for someone that had a rental car in Rome, the free parking was the key component that made us chose the hotel. It is limited but well organized by the staff. As it turned out, it was a very good hotel in all other respects as well. The location is good...just north of the north wall of the Vatican. Everything was within minutes-restaurants, shopping and the Metro to take you anywhere else you want to go. The room was spacious, clean and in good shape. Plenty of room for three adults. It also had a kitchette and an updated bathroom. It has excellent A/C controlled in room- a much needed reprieve from the 35-40 degree heat. The only minus was the hard beds but that seems to go for most of Europe.

"Close to Vatican"
This place is great, close to the Vatican, not a joke, close to supermarket, close to metro, close to laundry, close to restaurants, great customer service. Rome tax not cheap but not hotel's fault. Helpful front desk, parking a little tricky but free and tight, but it is middle of Rome. Church close by for no line on Sunday mass is a plus. AC rooms, good kitchen, plenty of space. Will be back.

"Different"
A lot of reviews for this hotel complain about the kitchen area cutting down on the room size .....i would totally disagree the room we were in was big enough for us and if we had brought our daughter the three of us would have been comfortable in the room we had.....also an ideal hotel for people on a budget as the kitchen facilities were good enough to allow you to cook a full meal......i just liked having a fridge to keep drinks cool as the temp at the time of our visit was nearly 40 Celsius.......only one down side the A/C control wouldn't allow below 16 ........free wifi and parking was a plus and the staff were lovely :)

"First time tourist to Rome"
Inexpensive residence for Rome. Excellent situation for Vatican and Basillica. 5 min walk to Metro station (Cipro) for easy travel to other places of interest. The hotel it's self, clean tidy welcoming staff and a good breakfast was on offer for €8. We were in a back room which was quiet. If you are on a budget, to be recommended.

"Misleading web pictures"
We had a double room and it would have been an acceptable size (just) if there was no kitchenette and table. There was barely enough room for 2 fold up chairs and only one of these would fit around the table! On the positive side the room was clean.

"Gem on the edge of Vatican City"
We had a wonderful four nights stay at Residence Candia and from the outset were made to feel welcome. As our flight had been delayed we did not arrive at the hotel until after midnight so it made a good first impression when we were checked in by a very helpful and friendly night receptionist. Our accommodation - the self catering apartment for two - was 'bijou' but well designed and well equipped with the essentials for self catering. The bathroom was compact, well equipped and spotless with a great shower and endless hot water. The apartment was fresh and spotless and the daily room service kept everything ship shape. The private terrace more than made up for the limited living space in the apartment itself and was wonderful for breakfast in the sun or evenings under the stars. Staff were always helpful with advice and in dealing with our queries. This hotel is literally ten minutes walk from the Vatican Museum and about fifteen minutes from the metro that can deliver you to most of the famous destinations in Rome. For others who like to self cater a well stocked Carrefour Express is also ten minutes away. The hotel's immediate location is a fairly busy area of small shops and businesses with a sprinkling of fairly ordinary cafes. We felt safe walking around the area in the evening after dark as we strolled round to see St. Peter's Square lit up. Altogether, a great place to have as a base and great value for money. We will definitely be back!

"To feel at home."
If you want to cook the great Italian products in the comfort of a little appartment, the Candia is perfect. And with a room at the back of the residence, you leave your room directly to the Vatican fortress wall! Not the comfort of 5 star hotel, but you feel a bit home. Precious. I will return.

We went as a family and stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. The Hotel is in a great location for visiting all the main attractions of Rome with the nearest metro and bus stop only a couple of minutes walk away. The Vatican museum is a 5 minutes walk away and St Peter's square a 8-10 minutes walk away. Sparkling clean bathrooms and clean rooms. Good Wi-Fi. Enjoyed our stay and would definitely go again.

"Hotel Candia by vatican"
The area looked run down but was safe and fine. A close walk to Vatican and metro so that was good. Staff were good except night shift guy who didn't want to intervene when a crowd of teenagers showed up and made noise until 2 am for 2 of the 3 nights we stayed. I was mad as hell and nobody including their teachers wanted to control them. So if you are with a family check first if there are any large party of teenagers. European kids do what they want. Dino and Tony's restaurant on via leon didn't look much from outside (they recommended it) but the atmosphere was excellent and a true local dining experience worth going to. Internet was patchy at best so don't rely on it, TV signal poor as was channel selection even for world cup and AC weak.

"Great start to family holiday in Italy"
I took a standard room for my 3 year old daughter, hubby and I. It was simple and small of course to SA hotels but had everything we need. We had a double bed in the room and they added a single for my daughter. There a small table that can be folded out so 3 of us ate comfortably. Little kitchen. Bathroom was a great size as I expected tiny. Even had a hand held shower so bathing my daughter was easy. Laundry, supermarket is really close by. Vatican city is 2 mins walk. So it metro bus. Railway about 5 mins walk (with a stroller). Great for a small family. Wifi was weak in the room even after they reset it. So I had to go to the room corridor to pick up signal and then it stayed when i walked in the room. Go figure! But at reception was great, just to let the family know we fine so didnt really worry about it. Road gets noisy at 1am when they pick up the trash so you will wake even very tired after a day in Rome. It set my sleep pattern for the rest of Italy so strongly suggest a room not facing the street.

"Great location but slow to resolve problems"
Nice hotel, great location - close to Vatican and Metro. However, on arrival they did not have details of our booking. Eventually got the room sorted but the fridge was not working. Every day for the next 5 days we requested that the fridge be looked at and fixed and it never was. We had several visits from hotel staff that just turned the dial around and said wait 10 minutes but the issue was never resolved. Very disappointed with this as we have 2 young children and an apartment with a fridge as essential for us. For our whole stay the issue was never sorted and this put a negative slant on our stay in Rome. Shame, but this is typical of Rome, plenty of great historical sights but the customer service and the cleanliness of the whole city leaves a lot to be desired.

"Excellent location, very cosy!"
We booked Residence Candia as we had recently been to Amsterdam and enjoyed the flexibility of an apartment. Our one bedroom apartment was in reality a double room with one wall adapted for cooking etc and a bit cramped. Once we reconciled ourselves to that, we really enjoyed staying at Residence Candia. Really friendly and accommodating staff - like leaving our luggage there after we checked out so we could explore Rome further before flying home. The room was very clean and the bathroom was excellent, spacious and clean. The environs of Residence Candia have a wonderful airy feel and its location is excellent, 5 minutes walk from the entrance to the Vatican Museums and 7 minutes or so to the metro. We really enjoyed our stay at Residence Candia and Rome, what a City!

"Budget apartments. Good for the money."
The staff at reception was polite but we did not find them very helpful. They do not replace soaps, bedsheets, towels, etc daily. We booked a 1 br apartment, we were given a small room with a double bed and 2 single bunk beds, there was also a compact kitchen plus breakfast area outside the room. The hotel does not offer breakfast which I guess is mentioned on their website. Kitchen is useful but except for basic utensils, nothing is provided. The location is near Vatican and is mainly for tourists so is very expensive. Overall, a good place for short stay (we were out most of the time during the day), good location (i.e. safe neighbourhood, local metro train station is close) and I guess not very expensive.

"Price, location and facilities excellent"
Reasonable price and 3 minute walk to underground. Vatican City walls 2-3 minute walk, museum 10 minutes and entrance to St. Peters' 20 min. Local dining, night life 2-20 minutes. Staff more than helpful with tips on transit, good eating, and what is worth seeing and not. Housekeeping superb. And there are dishes, utensils, great variety of pots and pans good enough for any cook. With the multitude of Roman Ruins and cathedrals/churches (start early morning to avoid crowds and lineups) at your fingertips you can't go wrong. This is the place to stay for maybe a couple of months rather than days. Our 1 week was far, far too short.

"친절한 직원이 인상 깊은 아파트먼트!"
저희는 6명의 가족이 지냈습니다.침실두개에 넓은 침대, 하나는 거실로 써야하는 곳에 침대가 있고 그 침대는 다른 침대보다 약간 작았습니다.거실없이 주방이 있었고 식사공간은 복도에 좁고 길게 놓인 테이블이 전부였습니다.욕실은 두개 있었고, 욕조는 없이 샤워실이 있었습니다. 물이 무료로 제공된다고 씌여있었지만 첫날 1리터의 물 1통만 제공되었습니다.6명이 1리터로는 턱없이 부족했고 물은 근처 24시간 하는 까르푸에서 사다 먹었습니다. 하루는 딸아이가 자고 있던 침대에서 좁쌀만한 까만색 작은 벌레가 발견되어 죽였더니 빨간 피가 나왔습니다. 아이가 그 벌레에 물렸을까봐 걱정되었지만 아이는 물리지 않았고, 제뒷꿈치가 물려 간지러워 고생했습니다. 그리고 바닥이 지저분한지 양말이 더러워졌습니다. 다행히 비행기에서 받은 슬리퍼가 있어서 이용했습니다. 위치는 로마 시내의 주요 관광지와는 거리가 좀 있었습니다.다른 장소로 갈때 지하철로 이동했고, 바티칸은 걸어갈수 있는 거리였습니다. 저희 객실은 도로쪽으로 창이 나 있어서 밤에는 매우 시끄러웠습니다. 아침에도 차 다니는 소리에 일찍 깰 수 밖에 없었습니다. 남자직원은 그닥 친절하지는 않습니다. 하지만 마지막날 있었던 여자직원은 매우 친절했습니다. 로마픽업회사에 전화도 대신 걸어주고, 자판기에서 생겼던 문제도 해결해주었습니다. 그렇지만 다시 로마를 찾는다고 하면 조금 더 중심부에 있는 곳으로 숙소를 잡는게 좋겠다고 생각합니다. 그래야 교통비도, 시간도 아낄 수 있을것 같습니다.
