Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We couldn't have asked for a better experience at Candia Inn. They arranged for a driver to take us to straight to the hotel from Fiumicino airport, and back again when we checked out. The breakfast vouchers to the downstairs coffee shop really let you experience the way the Italians do it and it was amazing! The rooms are spacious and clean, the bed was extremely comfortable, and management was available to answer any questions and give us suggestions on sights to see around Rome. If you want to experience true Italian food (and not the ones to attract tourists), definitely ask and they'll be more than happy to share. Overall, I'd recommend Candia Inn to all my friends and family. Definitely going to stay there again in the future!

Great location, just outside the Vatican wall. Rooms were spacious and very clean, had all you needed for your stay. Payed for breakfast but was not given the breakfast vouchers for the first morning. Tried to get in contact with the owners as they are not on site but was not contacted back. Only got the vouchers for the second morning as came back to the hotel early and a member of staff was waiting for another check in. No apology or an attempt to rectify the problem.

We booked this place and let the staff know our arrival was at about 5 pm. We arrived at 4:50 pm and rang the bell. Nobody was where. We called the number and notified our arrival. A lady said: 15 minutes. We waited. After 15 minutes nothing. We called again. The lady said: 2 minutes. 15 minutes later still nothing. It was cold and we were tired, in the middle of the curb, right in front of the garbage bins. We called two more times and every time she said: 2 minutes. The guy arrived almost one hour after our arrival, he did not even apologize. He invented excuses. We were very tired and angry, because they treated us like stupids. Horrible check in, disrespectful and arrogant staff. NOT RECOMMENDED

this is a converted apartment into a 3 room hotel in a residential but urban rome building. it was a perfect arrangement for our group of 6 people. it is about 15' walk to the vatican museums, 20' walk to st. peter square. ample of shops, mini-markets and restaurants around the neighborhood. free good breakfast is served from the bakery a few doors from the building. there is no common area. the rooms are spacious, clean and modern. each room has its own lock and restroom. restroom is totally clean and modern with automatic towel rack warmer & high water pressured shower! great location, rooms, service & value. definitely will stay here again.

When we arrived, we didn't expect rooms as nice as these to be in this building. They look like 4*hotelrooms. Very clean, tastefully furnished and decorated and with everything you need, like air-conditioning, hair-dryer, tv and kettle.The wifi also works perfectly. And the icing on the cake is the breakfast you get at an amazing italian bakery/pastry shop next door.

In planning a 5 day trip to Rome, I put a budget of €100 per night for accommodation & breakfast. Priority was somewhere within walking distance of most attractions. Candia Inn, described as B & B got consistently high ratings on TA so decided to book. It is a 3 bedroom apt all with ensuite bathrooms a few streets north of the Vatican in the Prati area. The room was small but adequate for short stay and equipped with kettle (tea bags, coffee & sugar included). Bathroom had soap and shower/hair shampoo and hair dryer. Free WIFI and a small flat screen TV. It was meticulously clean and Giulia was friendly and helpful. Here is what I did not read in other reviews....there is no staff present except for check-in and cleaning. We received an email asking us to give arrival details. It is important to be as accurate in your arrival time as possible. Giulia, who cleans the rooms did our check in as we arrived earlier than indicated. Other than the 3 bedrooms there was a small desk at the entrance to the apt and we were supplied with a list of phone numbers and services available. Coupons were provided for complimentary breakfast at the bakery, Forno Feliziani (separate review) next door. Quality of food and friendliness of staff here was excellent.

This wonderful little B&B is just right around the corner from the entrance to the Vatican Museums which is the meeting location for most if not all tours of the Vatican. Our City Wonders tour met at 7:45 am. (Highly recommended, by the way. See my separate review of that tour). My wife and I decided to stay at Candia so that we wouldn't have to fool with traffic, etc. in the morning. That turned out to be a great decision. Matteo's place is clean, quiet, and very nicely appointed. There room is serviced daily, has a relatively huge bathroom as well as air conditioning and wifi. Matteo was waiting for us when we arrived, showed us to our room, gave us some restaurant recommendations, and provided us with some guidebooks to borrow. From then on, it felt like we had our own little apartment in Rome. We were hardly there, as there is so much to see and do! We'd come back at night and just pass out. The neighborhood around Candia is safe and relatively quiet. That said, there are cuter neighborhoods and Rome. However, we are glad we stayed at Candia for its location and for its quiet/private feel. The other thing I'll add is that there is not a staff on site most of the day and night. That did not bother us one bit. However, if you are the kind of person that needs to have a concierge or someone around to tend to your various needs, this is not the place for you, and there are many American-style hotels that you can stay at in Rome instead. For me, though, this was an ideal place to hang my hat for a couple of days in Rome and came at a fraction of the cost of the other accommodations we considered.

We went for a family city trip to Rome. This B&B could not have been a better choice for us. The rooms are very well equipped and they feel brand new. Having lived several years in Rome in the past, I do not think ou can find a better hotel / B&B breakfast. By the way, location is also perfect for the Vatican and only a couple of blocks from Ottaviano metro. The owners are also very kind, polite and helpful. We are staying to the same place next time.

For the independent traveler that appreciates value (comfortable room, good price, clean bathrooms and good attention) this is a great B&B. With only three rooms, the Candia Inn feels more like a residence, which was just what my family required for our Rome vacation. We had two rooms (family of four with two teenagers). The rooms are good size, the bathrooms are very clean (the hot showers are great especially after a days walk) and the room are always clean and a have a modern design. Visited Rome during winter, but our kids put on the air conditioning anyways, and was silent and worked perfectly. The Patri district is a nice and safe neighborhood with good restaurants full of Romans (lower priced as well). The Breakfast voucher is in the Forno Feliciani, a bakery/cafeteria, next door - and the capuccino, bread and pastries are perfect. Forno Feliciani is a great value for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Visited mainly by Romans. Location is perfect for the Vatican visit, but quite a walk for Centro Storico and main tourist sites (need to use the Metro unless you are in good shape and like to walk a way). We used the Metro all the time and worked perfectly - if a trip to Venice, the Metro takes you directly to Termini Station for the fast train). Mateo (the owner) is very welcoming and always ready to service you well. In essence, if we comeback to Rome (which we will), we will surely stay at the Candia Inn. RECOMMENDATION: Purchase your tickets in advance ONLINE for major attractions (like the Colisseum and Vatican Museums) YOU WILL SKIP THE LONG LINES!!! Mateo helped us with the Colisseum tickets and we avoided a two-hour entry line at the Colisseum.
