What an absolute gem of a place to stay. Vatican just round the corner. Metro and bus stops very close. Big supermarket nearby(behind, off main st). Clean apartment, very comfy beds with plenty of pillows, well equipped kitchen(not that we used it!), Helpful and friendly reception staff(free map at reception) Myself, husband, plus 3 teenagers and a 4year old had a wonderful stay, at a fantastic price! Couldn't have wanted for a better located apartment!

We spent a week here and found it perfect. We had a four bed room, I paid a little more as we did only need 3 beds but saw those cheaper rooms were smaller. It’s 2mins from the metro, we walked most of the time, as that’s what we went for, to see Rome. Our room was cleaned every day, the place was great and I would stay there again. Don’t expect 4* service if your using this price bracket of accommodation. The stairs and lifts all work, and there are little roof gardens in different places. Great little place for visiting Rome on a budget with your family. And yep the tv is in Italian, how odd, as we are in Italy. The free WiFi worked a treat, allowing us to book all our trains and events in the evenings. The staff were polite and courteous.

Had the pokiest, most old fashioned depressing room I've ever stayed in!! Staff were ok but the building is cramped. Narrow walk throughs and our room was horrible!! Broken dirty heater under stained curtains. A safe that could be carried out of room. Horrible old tv with not one English channel and the tiny oven, microwave and cupboards were grubby and ancient!! We looked onto a depressing row of buildings with people screaming and shouting into the early hours. Sadly would not recommend at all!!

We spent one-week vacation in Rome and booked this residence due to great location and reasonable price. I was looking for an appartment, but Candia is not a typical appartment - it has reception! So no need to call the owner and schedule meeting to get keys. The staff was extremely friendly, the room was cleaned every day. The appartment was big and clean. And, as I said, the location is great - few steps from Vaticano Museums entrance, metro station, supermarkets, big market with lot of fresh food. I recommend Candia for families.

There were 3 of us travelling to Rome, and this place was great. Its near the Vatican and has lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. Its a bit of a walk to the Fontana di trevi, pantheon as you need to cross the tiber river, but still very good. Stayed for 5 nights and had a two bedroom apartment, kitchen was good (not that we cooked) but did have a coffee perculator and made lovely Italian coffee each morning. The staff where very helpful with directions, and the rooms where always clean and changed our towels everyday. Grazie Tanto.

This hotel was great for us: perfectly situated 2 minutes from the entry of the vatican museums. We paid only 80€ + 4€ city tax per person. The appartment was large enough with 3 rooms + bath. 6 beds! Beds are a little bit like in youth hostels, but I slept good. And there is the free parking! OK, it's nothing fancy but it's good and very cheep!This hotel was great for us: perfectly situated 2 minutes from the entry of the vatican museums. We paid only 80€ + 4€ city tax per person.

OK, it's nothing fancy but it's good and very cheep! So the good things: free parking, next to the vatican museums, price, space, kitchen, next to busses and metro (so you are in a few minutes in the city center...) The bad things: Yes, it needs a complete makeover, but I'm afraid: afterwards it might become expensive...

First of all the Location is very good. It's behind the Vatican. So if you wanna see Vatican Museum you will be there in only 5 Minutes. The staff is very friendly and give us a map to easier explore Rome. The Room was big enough for us 2. But I have no idea how it should be fit for 4 adults. We had without breakfast. Many little Restaurant and supermarket are around. The kitchen is small but with all equipped that you need. When we come back to Rome we will stay again here

Me and my husband stayed here for three nights at this hotel .Up on arriving at the hotel the front desk staff were not really nice and seemed to be put out when we asked them anything. Location wise was spot on, near the Vatican and close to the main attractions.Room was quiet for sleeping on a night, air con worked ,fridge ,microwave etc in room .Room cleaned daily ,if you call it cleaning ,bin emptied and bed made .No towel change the whole time we were there,(good job i like to take my own) .When checking out on the morning of departure, the front desk staff said we had not paid but we had (clearly a scam),luckily we had prove with us.All in all I would not stay here again or recommend it to others .

My family shared a superior studio and were very pleasantly surprised. We were greeted by extremely friendly reception staff, who bent over to help us with any queries we had. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and lovely and cool despite the extreme heat outside. Good location: very close to The Vatican, the metro, numerous restaurants and an amazing gelateri.

Arrived back after stopping three nights at this hotel. Its well located and quiet for sleep quality, the aircon works well, that's about it. The lady on the front desk was rather abrupt and always seemed to be a rush , there was no towel change in our room for the three days we were there, on checkout , the guy behind the desk told us we hadn't paid when quite clearly we had and this was pointed out to him with record's that I carried. I would not stop here again and certainly would not recommend it to anybody else.
