"Very Pleased"
Was very pleased with my stay. The room was immaculately clean and the location is perfect and a great bargain for the price. Would definitely stay there again. Even though we had the smallest size room type, the bed was king and had single bunkbed on top. Lots of "closet", shelves space. The day time lady was little frazzled but very nice and let us check in at 11:30a, since our room was ready. The young lady that took us to our room was a sweetheart. The night guys are little stand offish, could smile some. If you're very big or overweight, beware that the bathroom has a very small shower. Dont' know is showers in the bigger rooms are bigger. There is $2 euro per person per day tax charge and they take only cash for this. The notice is also posted as you enter. Maps and info are given to you at front desk along with wifi code(free). We highly recommed it.

"Mediocre at best"
I booked a penthouse for four (with three beds) and we were given two room causing one of us to use the sofa beds. It was a major inconvenience. The bathroom in one of the apartment was super small - even in European standards! We did not have hot water for some time because of the water heater issues and we had to remind the front desk more than twice. We needed some assistance from the room service one evening and there was no one available, the receptionist at the front desk flatly refused to attend it saying he cannot leave the front desk and there is no one else was available. The Wifi is very very slow (we were on the 5th floor). Most of the electric appliances (TC, microwave etc) are kept disconnected. You have to plug them in. You may have to request an extension cord to plug them in too. The rooms are kept clean. AC was working fine. There was enough space in the living room.

"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.

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.

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.

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.

"Great place for Family/groups"
Hotel seems split in two blocks, the one with the reception area etc has smaller more modern rooms some with balcony and are very nicely done but are compact the family room we could have had, had small bedrooms. While the one we picked in the older block had three bedrooms and could sleep eight or more. It was older and a couple of the rooms need some decorating soon, but it was very clean and spacious, nice kitchen area and space to be away from other if need be sometimes very handy on a family holiday, better than living on top of each other for us anyway. The only other thing is that the shower in the newer units would be larger and again more modern Hotel is very central and we would be happy to recommend the hotel. The staff we encountered were helpful and friendly although the older block is entered from the street thro a locked main door. If going back to Rome we would certainly look at staying here again. If the decor was done in the room we had it would have gotten 5 star especially for the price and location

More like a motel/hostel.. If your waist line is more than 36 then this place is not for you. If you are traveling with your spouse then you would be better off with other options. Limited walking space. Basically you wouldn't have ample space if you have more than 1 luggage. No carpet so you would be walking on their floor which feels like pvc cover. Location wise is brilliant which is within walking distance to Vatican City. Overall not recommended for those traveling with spouse. Don't spoil your mood.

"Our tiny Home in Rome"
We were given room 442 which I reckon is the smallest room in the hotel. But room was very clean, kitchenette well set up & all the gadgets, utensils as well as the bathroom were squeaky clean. Although there are two double beds (bunk bed formation) & can sleep 4, I would say the room is remarkably small & is good for a lightly built couple like us. But the hotel is good value for money considering its location, hygiene levels & courteous staff ( Aldo at the reception is very friendly & always ready to help).

The room was entirely too small; we could have dealt with that, but we were located immediately above the parking lot, and experienced noise all night involving late night party goers, arrivals, and departures. Since the parking lot is also a smoking area we had the benefit of breathing smoke for our entire two night stay. Not impressed with the room, but the staff were helpful.
