“Great value, quiet, convenient location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Loved this hotel in a quiet neighborhood, 3 blocks from the Colloseum and the Roman Forum. Nice restaurants near by. Friendly staff, very clean, beautiful roof top terrace. Rooms are a little small - typical for Europe.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in September. The hotel was perfect, the rooms were light and airy and we're cleaned to a high standard every day with a bottle of fresh water every day. The breakfast was good with lots of choice and the crispy bacon was outstanding, a firm favourite with everyone. The roof terrace overlooking the colosseum is a great place to relax and have a drink at the end of the day. The bar was reasonably priced for Rome but the restaurant did have a limited menu. This isn't a problem though as there are many places to eat around the hotel. The area was good and we felt safe walking at night. Would recommend this hotel and will be visiting again.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in September after reading many excellent reviews. We were not disappointed! A lovely hotel. Rooms very nice and a lovely roof terrace for breakfast. Staff really friendly. A very centrally located hotel within easy reach for sight seeing. If we return to Rome we will definately be booking this hotel again.

We enjoyed our stay here with 4 daughters. We liked the quiet, more residential neighborhood with good restaurants within a block or 2 ... the staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast tasty. The rooms and beds were extremely comfortable, especially after a hot days tour Rome. We slept fabulously and would stay here again.

After dealing with a horrible hotel in Florence we were skeptical about Capo d'Africa in Rome. The rooms weren't amazing (still comfortable) and I didn't think it was centrally located, but what made it great was the staff. Chiara, Guiseppe, Luigi, and the older woman at breakfast are just to name a few, but most important was Fabio. He was attentive, professional, and friendly!! We felt like special guests because of him. The hotel is two blocks from the Colosseum and if you are up for walking you can get to most of the major attractions. There are great restaurants nearby like Na Manchia (don't eat the horrible food for tourists across from the Colosseo) and a nice wine bar down the block. As much as I said I would stay at a more luxurious hotel if I went back - I don't think that would be the case. We ended up really liking Capo d'Africa and its location!! So we would definitely return!

We stayed at this hotel for two nights in September 2012. We chose this after reading other favourable reviews on Tripadvisor.
We flew into Rome for 2 days prior to joining a cruise ship in Citavecchia and this hotels location meant that we could visit most of the sites on foot. The Colosseum is very close and it was easy to get to the Vatican, Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain.
The room was very comfortable and we were not disturbed by the Rome traffic noise!
Breakfast is continental and adequate which we enjoyed on the top terrace with views to the Colosseum.
The staff at the reception were most welcoming as was the interior decoration. I will use this hotel again when I visit Rome as it represents good value and quality.

What can I say about this lovely hotel that has not already been said? Wanting to be close to the historic centre, and having stayed in much cheaper hotels in the past, we decided to push the boat out this time and spend a little more, and were so glad we did. The staff were attentive and friendly and the room was large and best of all, quiet! Once we had closed our door at night we heard not a sound - such a bonus in a busy city.
As this was our 4th visit to Rome, we opted to eat in the hotel at night, having already spent time in the past looking for 'good' restaurants which ultimately turned out to be disappointing. The rooftop restaurant at the Capo d'Africa is a joy - an lovely exclusive feel, with just a few tables. The young waiter and chef were friendly and attentive without being intrusive ( I do so hate having to discuss my life story with chatty waiters!) and it was wonderful to actually watch the food being cooked from scratch. The menu is limited, mainly pasta and salads, but excellent.
My one grouse (and it is very small) is that before we went, I emailed the hotel to ask if we could have separate beds, as my husband and I both sleep fairly badly. They confirmed receipt of my request by email. However, we did not get what we asked for, but made nothing of it, as we did have a huge super king-sized bed so we did sleep well. I don't doubt that had we said something, they would have done their best to rectify the situation.
I would not hesitate to stay here again, and would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room - we had no. 208 and it was lovely.
