We spent four days in Rome and could not have chosen a better place to stay. While Capo d’Africa was the most expensive of the hotels we booked for our two-week trip to Italy, it was worth every penny, especially since we were able to take advantage of their “pay for 3 nights, stay for 4” package. The hotel is right near the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, but tucked away from the mad throngs of tourists in a quiet neighborhood. It’s also a mere 5 minutes away from the nearest metro station and the church that houses Michelangelo’s Moses (amazing!).
Our room with a king-sized bed was spacious and clean. We were on the same floor as the lobby and bar, which meant a bit of noise some nights, but we weren’t too bothered. We also had a large bathroom with a tub/shower combo. Water pressure was great. Housekeeping was on it: soaps replaced daily along with fresh towels. Hotel also provided sandals for the room, which is always a plus in my book since I am totally neurotic about hotel room hygiene.
Breakfast is served on their rooftop balcony; it’s a bounty of pastries, cured meats and eggs. Highly satisfying. There are two good and affordable dining choices nearby: “3” for pasta and “Luzzi” for pizzas. Unfortunately, you’ll be doing a bit of walking to get to the better places to eat, but that is the beauty of Italy’s famous cities: for the most part, you can and should walk everywhere.
And the front desk was helpful. We didn’t use them that much, but there was always someone behind the counter and available to call a taxi for us.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would return to Capo d'Africa again!
