Fantastic place to stay.
Posted Jan 11, 2013
Pros: Extremely helpful staff.
Cons: No complaints about anything.
Location: Hotel is located in a suburb of Rome. Bus service to Rome Metro. Easy access to all of Rome.
Best hotel stay we have ever had in Italy. Hotel Selva Candida is a fantastic place to stay while visiting Rome. The entire staff is extremely helpful in making your stay as perfect as possible. We have stayed there three times now, and each experience was fantastic. The rooms were always perfect. Plenty of free parking, with no hassles. The bus line stops just outside the gates, which takes you to the Rome Metro line. Easy access to and from Rome. Overall well worth the money, with what you get. The daily breakfast is exceptional with lots of choices. Hotel is located in a suburb of Rome, in a quiet area. Grounds are well kept, and it has always been a pleasure to stay there. The staff will provide any information you require, and help you in any way possible. Highly recommended hotel.

A great value hotel in a pleasant setting.

Pros: Good value for money.
Location: There is at least a 45 minute journey into and back from the city centre as the hotel is outside the ring road.
A delightful hotel with friendly, helpful staff. Breakfast was good. Rooms were comfortable. The downside, if you are visiting Rome tourist sites, is the journey into the city and back. This can take an hour by bus and metro. If you are happy with this it is a great place to stay and good value for money.

Great hotel away from downtown congestion

Excellent location. We had to drive a few kilometers to the metro station. The on-duty desk staff gave us complete instructions for free parking and metro access. We went right to the sites of interest and met all our goals thanks to the staff help. Hotel was clean with excellent bathrooms and breakfast was as promised. I would stay here again when in Rome.

Great hotel. Not ideal location.
Posted Jan 19, 2012
Hotel and staff were excellent. Staff very friendly and went out of their way to accomodate our every want and need. Rooms clean and comfortable, with fridge, safe, and tv. Huge bathtub.Good breakfast. They even let us go in there early when we had to leave the hotel before the normal breakfast time. Location not ideal. Had to take bus, then metro, to get into Rome. This took about an hour.

The hotel is very nice with beautiful gardens and rooms. Overlooking the freeway but not noisy. Excellent service and great continental breakfast. Couple of great restaurants close by, since the hotel only serves breakfast.

A good,clean which was easy to find on public transport with a Metro train then bus. the standard one Euro single fare for the whole journey is very good value. Breakfast is a standard cold buffet with not a great selection, the staff are pleasant and very helpful. My room was let down by weak Wifi and only lukewarm water in the shower but a friend's room had good Wifi and hot water. No restaurant but a very good one just across the road.

This is our second stay at this hotel and we were pleased to see that we enjoyed it as much as we did three years ago. The hotel is beautifully maintained inside and out. The rooms are impeccable, cosy and comfortable. The continental breakfast is composed of fresh products...including delicious cakes to die for.The staff, one of the best teams we've encountered on our trip, offers remarkably cheerful and attentive service. This hotel is far from the tourist sites. One must first take the bus, then the metro to get to the city center. It is best for those with a car.

Hotel Selva Candida (Rome)
Posted Jan 15, 2011 on Hotels.com
The hotel has an impressive entrance from the road and is set in pleasant grounds. It has a spacious and elegant entrance foyer and reception desk. All the staff were friendly, helpful, and smartly dressed. The room was nicely furnished, nothing tatty or tired, with a very nice ensuite bathroom. Toiletries were provided. Choice at breakfast was very good, with cheeses, cold meats, cereals, yoghurt, fresh fruit, pastries, juices, tea and coffee. The only downside was the location, out in the sticks. The bus stop was near the entrance and it was a 20 minute ride to the terminus. From there a journey of 4 stops on the Metro and then a short walk to get to the Vatican, the closest major attraction. The bus ran every 15 minutes. The tickets, which cover bus and Metro, can be bought in the hotel, and the cost per day for 2 of us was incredibly cheap.

Hotel Selva Candida Rome
Posted Jan 21, 2011 on Hotels.com
A lovely smart clean quiet hotel with most helpful staff.Located about half hour by 904 bus from Cornelia tube.A main bus stand is about 600 mtrs from tube.The hotel is on right hand side of road (arriving).The road does not have any pavements so use care when alighting.You are facing oncoming traffic. A good cold buffet with wide choice is available for breakfast.A nearby restaurant-similar name,no connection- has a varied Italian menu for a pm meal There is also a convenience store almost opposite the hotel.Until June 2012 (due to engineering work) Rome Metropolitana (underground) closes at 8pm mon-fri, so allow an hour plus to return to hotel from central Rome.If you are happy with this location you will have a really good hotel with great service and atmosphere.Would I stay there again-Yes

Very Helpful Staff, location away from noisy City
Posted Jan 2, 2011 on Hotels.com
The Staff here were very helpful and this was very useful for figuring out how to get into the City! It was just a short bus ride and then onto the underground to get into the centre which in total took no more than 30mins. Driving in Rome with parking etc is a nightmare so the location of this place was ideal for a few days in the city. Breakfast was good and the only minor complaint would be the air-con was not very powerful and the balcony in our room at night was attacked by bats. However I thought this was great, watching them attack my girlfriend and was one of the highlights of the entire holiday for me. Probably the best place we stayed while in Italy, Some people had mentioned that there is no pavement on the way to the bus stop, but it's not really an issue as it's about 4 steps away from the Hotel gates.
