The good things first: It was close to Colosseum, and close to the tube with some nice restaurants and pubs around. The room was in a good size and kept clean everyday. The breakfast was quite nice and the staff there were really friendly. ...and now onto the bad: The staff in the reception were not nice or friendly at... More

Dear Mrs. Rebecca, I’d like to thank you for having been our guest. I really appreciate your positive comments about the cleanness and size of rooms and our breakfast staff. On the other hand, I am sorry that your experience with us was not up to standards. In November, it is true that we had not air condition because usually... More

We chose the Hotel d Africa due to its location, two blocks from the Colosseum and near the Metro station. Our room was on the first floor, which is the same floor as the bar. Needless to say it was a bit noisy over the weekend. Next time, I would request a room on another floor. The breakfast was wonderful... More

This hotel was perfect for our 4 night stay in Rome over the New Year period. Situated a short distance from the Colisseum, the location was excellent for visiting the ancient Roman sites but also set in a quiet street away from the mass of tourists. It was also a very easy to walk from here to the national museum,... More

I decided to book with the Capo d'Africa Hotel after reading the positive reviews on TripAdvisor. We were planning on spending 8 nights in Rome so I really wanted a pleasant experience with good value, otherwise it would have been a whole week of regret. We were absolutely delighted with the hotel. A hawker for a ride service approached us... More

I have just returned from Rome where I stayed in the Capo d'Africa Hotel. A friend of mine had stayed there previously and had quite enjoyed the stay. It is quite basic but very good value and everything functions well. The rooms are not overly generous and the bathroom verging on small but that is not a complaint, just an... More

I couldn't get into my regular hotel in Campo, so I tried the Capo d'Africa. What a find! Room was clean, bed was comfy, bathroom was modern and well-appointed. Service was excellent, and everyone spoke English well. Breakfast was plentiful, with more choices than the usual Continental. The gym was nice, too. Three things that often disappoint me when I'm...

Blocks away from the Coliseum, the Metro, tram and buses as well.So you can walk or ride with the Roma Pass for 3 days. All the staff were very accommodating and the turn down service was extremely timely. Great breakfasts, cafe service in hotel lobby area with Victoria and free wifi. Well done!

This hotel is very central. It's a stone's throw from the Coliseum and there are lots of good restaurants near by. I found the bed and, in fact, the room very comfortable. The front desk staff were very, very helpful. It was very quiet at this hotel which was very appreciated after being in transit for several days.

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
