I stayed for three days in Rome at Residence Candia and in my personal opinion I could've found a better place for the same price. The hotel looks old and the rooms are too small and dark. The personnel at the front desk weren't so kind. Even though they answered to some of my questions about how to move around, their attitude wasn't pleasant and they didn't satisfy my needs. The location is good if you are interested in visiting the Vatican but is too far from any other touristic visit in Rome. To sum up, even though it wasn't terrible, I don't think I'll ever stay there again.
Great location near the Vatican and Metro stops. Great restaurants nearby. Laundry helps so we did not have to bring a lot of clothes. Our oldest son was in the Temple University summer in Rome program and we were able to join him in this hotel. There are nice meeting areas in the hotel. The hotel employees were very helpful in printing out train schedules for us and giving us other advise and help. They showed us great locations to visit on a map that they provided.
Excellent location, clean, close to everything, love it Grocery store near by, Vatican near by, Transit ,everything is perfect, wish I could move there and make a new life here, maybe it will be my second home one day.
This was a pensione, NOT a hotel. Don't stay here if you need help with luggage. No one offered to help us with our bags. Luckily, they had 2 small elevators, an elevator accommodating one adult with one large or medium bag. Our room for two was so tiny that one of us had to sit still in one corner so the other could move around. Two sides of the bed were against mirrors so I had to crawl out when I used the facilities at night. On our first and second days, we told the guy at the front desk (between 10 AM- 11 AM) that our safe was locked upon arrival. He made excuses and seemed irritated we bothered him. As a result, we just stayed out of the way of this unfriendly host the rest of our stay. The front desk was open 24 hours but did not change currency. Our room air conditioner seemed to work since it was humming but our tiny room never got colder than 25C with the window closed. At night especially (we were sightseeing during the day) we opened the window and the mosquitoes came buzzing around. Fortunately, I brought mosquito repellent wipes which I placed around our bed so we were not feasted on. We had a small kitchen, pots and pans, dishes and a two-burner stove. The towels were changed every 4 days and the bed linens, weekly. An extra change was â‚¬5 per person. The room was cleaned daily, the trash emptied. I rated it 2 stars because of the great location and proximity to the Vatican and the cleanliness of our tiny room. The room was also quiet. The pensione is accessible to 2 Metro stations- Cipro and Ottaviano. Several Italian restaurants and a couple of supermercattos were within 5 min. walk. Free parking was available to those with vehicles. I have prepaid them through booking.com but when we were about to leave, the night clerk said we owed them around â‚¬6-â‚¬7 per night tax. Fine, we paid it and he called us a taxi which arrived in 5 minutes. I would not recommend this pensione for those used to staying in hotels.
I'm hesitant to write this review as I feel like I found a gem of a hotel and don't want it spoiled. The Residence Candia is in a fantastic location just a few blocks walk from Cipro Metro station, so VERY easy to get it. It's also only a few blocks away from the entrance to the Vatican Museums. The room we had for for 6 of us (2 Adults 4 kids 18,16,14 and 11) and had TONS of room. It was all VERY nice and spacious and that made everyone very happy. For a room that size to sleep 6, it was a very good rate and honestly I would love to stay there again. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. I speak fluent Italian but it appeared they spoke good English too. Nearby is my favorite gelateria in Roma, Millennium Gelateria which is just a block to the west and you pass it as you walk to the hotel from the Cipro Metro station.....in fact we stopped there with our bags before we even checked in! Also great is the Carrefour Supermercato a block in the opposite direction from the hotel from the Cipro metro station. Good food at great prices to help with pain of paying tourist prices for basics. Long story short, will stay here again.
