Firstly I must say all the reception staff were lovely, and the roof garden was too, when it was open. First sign of rain and it was locked up, they couldn't just put a "Beware wet floor" sign up, no they locked it up! Do NOT ask them to arrange a taxi anywhere for you, they will rip you off....

The staff were lovely. Do not follow the advice of reception to get breakfast at the restaurant at the bottom of nearby steps, instead If you walk along that street to your left there are several places which are very good and much cheaper. The room was ok at first glance but we had no hot water for 2 days,... More

The place is near St. Peter 's basilica. "It's just 15 minutes walk. Basically, it's near in all shops and restaurants. The hotel is clean since everyday they are changing the beddings and cleaned the room. You are allowed to cook. The only problem we encountered was the wi-fi! The signal was so poor. We hardly can't connect. This is... More

We were recommended this hotel by friends, This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in, and it wasn't cheap, the room was like a hostel with the microwave on a chair and a full bin to welcome us It wasn't exactly close to the attractions either The only plus is the Vatican view from roof terrace Luckily the...

Room was not clean. We had to wait 30 plus minutes in between showers to get hot water. Staff was not helpful. A/C did not work. We would not stay here again. We also had a hard time getting the wifi to work in our room.

We found Residence Candia to be a great place to stay, 10 min walk to Vatican City- the staff was very helpfull when we checked in and gave us lots of information on other places to visit and how to get around Rome. We took the tour bus to many attractions, got on the bus and the subway without a... More

The hotel was in a quiet neighbourhood with friendly staff and the room was very clean. It was just a 10 minute walk from the Vatican so although you had to walk into the centre of Rome it was well connected with public transport. The bus stop was just a 5 minute walk and San pietro station also about 5... More

We loved the location! And yes you have to walk, but that is Rome!!! It is only a 5 to 10 minute walk to any of the bus stations! You can see St. Peter's Basilica from the roof top patio! We arrived early in the morning well before standard check in time and our host had our suite ready! And... More

The apartmemt is located southwest of Vatican City, on a quiet street. Unfortunately the location isn't ideal for family stay due to lack of public transportation nearby. From Piazza San Pietro, it's a quite uphill walk, about 15+ min. The nearest supermarket is more than 25 min away on foot, so imagine if you plan to do some self-catering. The... More
