We arrived at 10pm to a very friendly welcome and an extremely comfortable hotel room,which I thought was quite spacious for a city centre hotel. A big bonus of this hotel room compared to many in cities was that it was quiet and reasonably immune to traffic noise - probably helped by the fact we were on a slight side street rather than a main road.
Breakfast was an ample continental selection with cooked meats, cheeses, cakes and pastries that were kept stocked whatever time we arrived at the restaurant. A special mention should go to a lovely lady who seems to run the breakfast room and was there every day of our stay except Sunday. I must apologise because I didn't get her name but I'm sure you will recognise her if you visit; she has a big smile and friendly "ciao" for every guest and made us feel welcome every morning. She encouraged us to sit outside on the terrace one day in the sunshine which was absolutely lovely especially for a couple of Brits who had a few days earlier been in the wind and rain of February in England!
The location is good, literally two minutes walk from the Colosseum, which is absolutely magnificent! Consequently though it is a one end if you will of the main sights in Rome. If we visited Rome again we might choose to stay around the Trevi Fountain as this is close to a number of other sights such as the Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona and the Pantheon. Having said that it is only about a mile walk from the Colosseum to the Trevi Fountain so it is perfectly do-able!
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Rome and our stay in the Hotel Capo d'Africa. I would happily recommend the hotel.
