I booked three couples into the penthouse with terraces rooms at the Residence Candia. Brilliant choice. One downfall is the look of the neighbourhood. Of course that was deceiving.
This is an area of shops open late at night, great food markets, restaurants and a laudromat. Each room is unique and we enjoyed comparing what was available in each room.
Cleaning was done each day, free WiFi Internet, extremely helpful staff 24 hr a day. They made transfer arrangements for us, answered questions, showed us on the map where we wanted to go and even advised us each morning on the weather conditions to where we had booked tours.
The tour companies and transfer companies come right into the building to call for you. Great convenience over meeting on a corner in the early morning dark.
The very best was the comfort of the beds. We had been on a 14 day river cruise and thought those beds were perfect, but the beds here at Residence Candia were excellent.
One room had a problem with no hot water and the staff were there within 10 minutes and had it fixed. That is another plus.
Perfect location to the Vatican and the Tiber River. If travelling with friends it is ideal to be able to visit and make a cup of tea in a room where 6 people can sit and be comfortable. Add the pleasant and helpful staff, very clean rooms, walking distance to the metro, Vatican, shops, restaurants, market, laudromat and feel safe, it is a 9.9 to me.
PS the safe was over the bed and difficult to get to in our room, but it was there
I will refer guests to the Residence Candia with high praise.
