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.

This hotel is in an amazing location, just one street away from the entrance to the Vatican museums. It is a converted apartment so there are just a few rooms and they are a good size for Rome, beautifully decorated and in perfect condition. The hotel owner is young, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We corresponded by text from the airport when a late flight changed our travel plans, he recommended places to eat and the bakery next door for which you got vouchers for breakfast is an absolute delight. I would definitely head back here when I return to Rome for either business or holiday purposes.

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.

The best place to stay in Rome. Close to Vatican museums and Saint Peter's, in the heart of Prati district and less than 5 mins walk from the Ottaviano metro stop. You won't need to take the metro though, cause Rome is a city to explore only by walking.
Concerning the place, it is in a Roman block of flats so you feel like living there more than being a tourist. Magic sensation!!The apartements are reallly cute, renovated and stylishly decorated with a window overviewing Via Candia.
Last but not least,what maybe matters most, is the hospitality provided by Matteo, who is professional one of a kind, with a bright welcoming smile.
So, all in all, trust my view and choose this BB, it has been my 3rd time in Rome, and by far the best stay at Candia Inn.

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

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights. Upon arrival we were greeted by Matteo who was extremely friendly and helpful. He gave advice on good places to eat, shop, and tips with getting into some of the attractions.

The rooms were very pleasant, air-conditioned, clean and exactly like the photos we saw online. We had mini bottles of champagne and chocolates on arrival, and free access to the wi-fi. Shower was nice and powerful, the bed and pillows were comfy, and the room was cleaned/tidied daily.

Matteo very kindly printed tickets that we had booked online to museums, and even our flight boarding passes for the return journey home which we were very grateful for. We visited Florence and Pisa for 1 night and we were allowed to keep our luggage and items in the room. We were also offered a discount for the night that we didnt stay there which was a very nice gesture.

We found the hotel to be in a very convenient location. It was about a 2 minute walk from the Ottaviano metro stop, and close to lots of places to eat. The breakfast is not provided in the hotel, instead you are given vouchers to eat at a nice little place called Forno Felizian which is just a few steps away. Breakfast was really lovely here and always seemed busy with the locals.

We were given the room opposite the road side. The noise from outside was minimal and did not bother us at all. Unfortunately, we did experience some banging from residents of the building on the upper floor (sounded like a child running up and down a hall from about 8 am nearly every morning and during some of the evenings), however, we did not inform Matteo of the problem until the day we were leaving. We tried to put up with it at first but it continued. We thought about telling Matteo but we were close to the end of our holiday at this point and we honestly felt there wouldn't have been much he could do about it anyway. Matteo did tell us that he would've tried speaking to the parents about the noise, but by then it was too late. I guess we just got unlucky as no other guests on Trip Advisor mentioned anything about this.

On our last day Matteo booked us a taxi and we were told it would be 45euros. When we got in the car the driver was immediately pulled over by the police before he even got into his seat. After waiting in the car helplessly for about 10 minutes we learnt that the driver did not have a taxi license of some sort, and so we had to get out the car and wait for Matteo to ring up another taxi. We didnt wait long for the next taxi, which was not from the same company as the previous one that was ordered. We got chatting to the new driver who spoke some English and he explained to us that the taxi licensing is a known problem and apparently the hotel staff will often get a cut portion of the fair that is paid so that these un-licensed taxis get business over the legit ones. The price difference was 3 euros, so to us it seemed stupid, but there is obviously money in it for people that call these taxi companies up! All Matteo had to say about this to us was "S***T HAPPENS" to which we were flabbergasted!!! I am not saying that Matteo was involved in anything that I have described from the other taxi driver...BUT, my advice to anyone is that if you want someone to call you a taxi/cab, I would be making sure you specifically request a licensed one. Fortunately for us we decided to leave with plenty of time in advance however this sort of delay could easily ruin someone's return travel plans.

The noise/taxi incident aside, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

As I am writing this review in the bed of one of Candia Inn's room, I am already gonna miss staying here and most of all, our host, Matteo.

First, let me share more about the accommodation. It's like staying at your own apartment cos we are given a set of keys to enter the building and the room. The place is really clean, well maintained and very comfy. Free wifi is provided in the room which makes it very convenient for us to stay connected. Location wise, its just 10min walk from metro station and very near to vatican city. For the price, it comes with breakfast at a nearby cafe which serves very good pastries. I couldnt ask for anything more!

Next, I would like to thank Matteo for his wonderful hospitality for the past 3 days. Not only is very attentive and helpful, he always serves with a great smile. What impresses me is his attentiveness. When i asked about the timing of the heating system in the room, he explained clearly and even offered to alter the timing to suit us. Of cos, we didnt want to impose so we carried on with the pre-set timing. He was so kind that he took the initiative to set the aircon remote control to a higher temperature so that when we got back, we just need to switch it on and get the heat. He also tries to provide as much info to us so that we could make full use of the 3 days in Rome. He even lends us a book on Rome and always jotting down useful info for our reference. A very genuine and sincere host! If I were to come back to Rome again, I will definitely stay here again.

The room is large, clean and comfortable. My wife loved the bathroom, much bigger than most. One of the best seafood restaurants in Rome is a block away, one of the best restaurants for locals is 3 blocks away, bus line to Trastevere and Piazza Novella is 2 blocks away, Subway to Trevi and Coliseum 3 blocks, the Vatican wall is a block away... plus Mateo the owner, is a young, friendly guy who has a lot of helpful hints. Use Mateo's driver to get to and from the airport. Massimo is reasonable, punctual and nice.

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.

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.

I spent 2 nights at the Candia Inn in September 2014. If you're on a budget, want a comfortable, clean and aesthetically pleasing place that's really really close to great sights, shopping and restaurants, then stay here. Matteo the owner was extremely helpful both during my trip planning as well as the actual stay. Don't be put off by the mess on the street outside - those messy garbage bins are everywhere in Rome. Inside is very clean. The B&B is small but comfortable, and location-wise you just cannot go wrong.
A real little gem

It is. Just... the staff is not reliable. We booked it a few weeks ago and had to wait for the guy for one hour in the middle of the street to be able to check in.

Are there safes available?
Answer from Caroline B
Lincoln, United Kingdom1 contribution
We had two rooms and there was a safe in each, which we made full use of. We loved this place - brilliantly situated for the Vatican, and whilst it's further to the other main attractions we found them all to be within walking distance if you're willing to do the walking. The owner was extremely helpful, the rooms very comfortable.
