We had a very pleasant 2 night stay at Capo d'Africa Hotel. The hotel is lovely modern and chic.The lobby has a pleasant bar and we were served around midnight with no problem. The breakfast room was so lovely. The staff was very courteous and helpful and the rooms were well appointed. If you are used to upscale boutique hotels this one is for you. The hotel is convenient to the Colosseum, Palatine, the Forum and the Metro. We stayed one night in a disappointing Colosseum hotel but change to Capo d' Africa and were so glad we did.

We loved this hotel! The room was very quiet and comfortable. It has a great location - a block from the Coliseum, yet residential and quiet at night. If you want to get to the more touristy areas, the taxi stand is a block away. The subway is a block or 2 away. At night, you felt like you lived in Rome, frequenting neighborhood restaurants.

The breakfast was great – good variety of cereals, breads, danishes, eggs, meats, cheeses, etc. The lady who runs the breakfast is awesome. As soon as you walk in they ask you if you would like coffee. It definitely made us feel like VIP’s.

We definitely plan to return to the great city of Rome, and Capo d’Africa will be our home base.

I totally enjoyed my stay at this fine hotel. Everyone was friendly, so helpful, patient, and affable. The room was lovely with a well appointed bath complete with plush terry cloth robe and slippers. Laundry service was fast and well done. The bar is well stocked and very well tended, and the hotel food is well prepared. A short 21/2 block walk to the coliseum and a nearby taxi stand - just 2 blocks away. Some good restaurants and at least on trattoria in the immediate vicinity - no more than 2-3 blocks away. The rooftop breakfast is more than adequate with a variety of breakfast foods - cereals, cold meats and cheeses, breads, eggs, hot meats, fruit, juices, variety of coffee, even soy milk. One can choose to eat in or outdoors. The coliseum is clearly visible. I would definitely return. I have traveled to Rome on several occasions, and this was the best experience of all.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, it was clean and very quiet. Rooms not that big but definitely well kept. We really liked the area around the hotel - it was more residential which was nice to walk through after a long day of travels. Also - the road about one block up from the hotel turns into a busy spot at night, good people watching. Of course, the proximity to the colesseo was excellent - I LOVED walking past it every day.

Hotel staff was pretty friendly too - helped us out in making reservations for restaurants.

Combining family vacation to Rome, Italy with a work trip to Heidelburg, Germany, my husband, 19 yr old daughter and I had the best experience of our lives . . .we love Rome and the Hotel d'Africa within viewing distance of the Coliseum was fantastic! It was on a quaint side street outside of the "craziness" of some of the other areas of Rome but we were still able to walk to some of the main attractions such as the Trevi fountain and Pantheon and of course the Coliseum, Forum, etc are right by the hotel. . . of course you must go to the Vatican . . also checl out the Capuchin Crypt in Rome - kind of creepy but very interesting . . The Hotel d'Africa is an art deco very neat boutique type hotel (which is not type of hotel I'm used to staying but we loved this hotel) - make sure at the end of a long day of sightseeing you order a drink/snack to be delivered to the rooftop terrace/patio . . right around the corner from the hotel is a neighbor wine/cheese shop that does "happy hour" tastings, there's also a gelato shop around the corner and a "college age' bar called the Tree or something like that . . .and literally couple block walk to the Coliseum and all the restaurants/little stores around there . . .and definitely take a "tour" of the monastery right at the hotel - unbelievably beautiful and rich in history and current mix . . we were in a room that faced the main street - narrow room but plenty big for the 3 of us -- large double or queen I think and a "twin" size bed for our daughter .. .hopefully we will have the change to go back one day - and I definitely would stay at same hotel. ..

The hotel is nice, I'll give it that. But the location is bad, bad, bad. Out beyond Coloseum and not in historic center which would be much better. And the place is very, very, very expensive for what you're getting. I'm still fighting with the hotel about the charges on my credit card FOUR MONTHS after the trip. And the worst part of it is that the people who work there are so mean! This was my honeymoon and I was expecting much more. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT stay here.

We stayed for three nights and had a wonderful time. The staff was friendly and professional. We love the location as we started every morning touring the city by walking past the coliseum. We would recommend this place to anyone.
