Very friendly staff.

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 30, 2012

We were very pleasantly surprised with the perfect friendliness (in Italian, French and English) of ALL the personnel in contact with customers at the reception and at the breakfast. This is not so common in Rome even for frequent visitors like my wife and I who speak some Italian.
The hotel itself met in comfort our criteria for a 4 *. We paid a little more for a "Double Premier" room which gave us the right to a large bottle of chilled Prosecco on arrival, complimentary free access to the minibar in the room (beer, sodas and water) and a French newspaper delivered to our table at breakfast, plus some other benefits.
What was very important for us is that the hotel is located in a quiet area while being 300 m from the Colosseum and Forum, and St. John Lateran at about 500 m. In addition the district has several restaurants what avoids having to move far away in the evening, especially when it rains like this month of April 2012.
We will return.
One negative remark is that their baggage handler should be more present to help customers carrying their luggage on the steep stairs at entrance.

Noisy

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 29, 2007

I stayed here for 4 nights nights in June 2007. On 1st night I was given a room next to the lift on the first floor, on 2nd night they moved me to 3rd floor which was even more noisy as it had the breakfest room above me, but I stuck it out. On the 3rd night the air conditioning was very noisy on the whole of the 3rd floor, they offerd to move me to othe side of 3rd floor but it was more noisy.

The hotel and the rooms were very clean, the staff were helpful, the street of the hotel was a quite one for Rome.

Keep an eye on your room bill, I got charged for taking peanuts from the mini bar and I can't even eat peanuts! I got charged for taking water, when I had my own water. I had room service breakfest every morning and the one they charged me more for the same breakfest!

The room mini bar is ridiculously is over priced... so no treats there... it's not twice the price, it's not 3 times the price, but 4 times the price! No one who values money money should touch it.

This hotel seems more for Americans than English.

Rome's best Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 27, 2006

We stayed at this gem of a hotel for 4 nights only 2 minutes walk from the Colosseum in the end of February 2006. Our room was on the first floor & looked out to the back of the hotel.
The room was large & modern with all the usual stuff ie toiletries , Sat TV air con which would be nice in the hot summers. This is a 4 star city hotel with all mod cons but it feels like a boutique hotel with all the extra attention to detail. The hotel is in a Quiet street with no traffic noise which is a bonus. Breakfast is served on the top floor with nice views over the city
In the summer they serve breakfast on the roof terrace.

Unique Quality: The staff in the Capa d africa were excellent especially Chiara & Katia at reception.
They directed us to the best pizza place in town only a short walk from the hotel.
All the staff have to be complimented on a well run friendly hotel that makes you want to return.

Directions: Via Capo D Africa 54 , Rome 00184
Only 2 minutes walk from the Colosseum

Modern hotel, great location, competitive price

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 23, 2005

You are unlikely to find many bad reviews for this hotel and for a good reason - it is very good, very modern and located very close to one of Rome's main attractions: the Colosseo. Highly recommended.

Unique Quality: This hotel is modern with some outstanding features: reasonably big rooms (though the bathrooms are tiny), very quiet (also thanks to the excellent double glazing), lovely design decoration, extremely clean, cheap phone calls (important to use the Internet connecting from a laptop to Italian ISPs on national rate numbers), fridge in the rooms, sunny peaceful terrace, helpful and friendly staff, well equipped gym.

Directions: 2 blocks and 5 minutes walk from the Colosseo.

Just returned from a five day stay at Capo D'Africa. It was lovely. Very modern and european. We had a large room with two twin beds. Very large, big closet and a nice veranda. All the staff was very helpful especially Maria at the desk ....do not be afraid to ask her recommedations for restaurants. Breakfast on the roof top terrace was lovely. Rome was beautiful and would definately look no further than the Capo. Walk or take a cab to everything....cab was never more than nine or ten dollars including tip! Ciao!

Unique Quality: Lovely old building completely re done and immaculate. Lovely, quiet area.
