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

There are some really good positives about booking this place - Great location - Close to St Peters square, you will pass through this to go anywhere so will never forget it - Not too far to bars & restaurants but it is a 10 - 15 min walk - Its a quiet street, this is always a bonus in... More

Excellent location, as it is in a quiet area, but only a short walk from bars/cafe's and a short walk to St Peter's Square, which we passed through each day. Clean, towels changed/bed made every day. Having our key gave us the chance to come and go as we pleased, with the knowledge that someone was on reception if we... More
