“Excellent Hotel”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

We arrived yesterday and the Hotel had arranged a car to pick us up at the airport etc. We are a party of four with luggage - so this worked really well. About 45 mins to the Hotel from Fuemicino airport, they will also arrange to transfer us back at the end of our 3 night stay. Total cost was around €120.00 total for both ways.
The Hotel itself is very nice and lovely clean rooms with air con that works well. There is wi-Fi available as well but had some trouble in connecting my I pad. The location is really superb and only a short 5 minute walk to the Coliseum. In fact the terrace breakfast room on level 4 offered views from one side whilst having your breakfast - which was very good with a great selection of foods etc. The staff at the reception are really helpful and friendly, they recommend great local eating places for the evening and will make the reservation at the time you require.

To sum up - great location in Rome and would definitely stay again !!!

The Capo D'Africa is a beautiful hotel. Located one block from the Colosseum and close to the roman forum its walking distance to the metro which can take you anywhere in minutes. The staff was great. Cosimo the morning manager of the breakfast room treated our son like his own. he was interested in what we were doing and we really enjoyed him. The bartender Fabriso was awesome as well. He treated us like long time friends and made us feel at home. He helped with some apps on our iphone to save on texted back to the USA.
The breakfast is great and the rooms were very clean and modern. We had dinner one night and was very tasty and slightly more high end compared to the tourist trap places near the Rome sites. Some slight noise if you open the windows facing the street but that is what we encountered on our two week stay everywhere in Italy. The front desk was more than helpful recommending a tour and helping get to the metro.
The reason for the marginal grade was that upon checking out the bill was almost 300 euros higher. After finding my reservation on my cell phone the guy at the front apologized and revised it. It was wrong again and after showing him simple math he revised again. I asked what the issue was (because I wanted to hear his explanation) and he said that they had moved our room upon check in and the billing reflected current room rates and not what the confirmation was. I dont buy it. The confirmation number was attached to each bill after further review. This isnt some tiny shack..its a nice hotel and fairly large by Rome standards with modern equipment and software for reservations etc.. Had it not seemed too high I would have just paid it and went about my business. I added the car service to pick us up at the airport which was included in my bill and had to show the guy twice. its a shame because that one mix up could have cost us a ton of $$$$.. Everything else was splendid.

A good hotel near Colosseo & Foro Romano. It is approx 4-6 minutes walk from Colosseo.
Very quiet and the rooms were big enough for 1 week stay. Good bed and the Wi-Fi was quite fast. Large TV but like many Italian hotels not many English stations. Breakfast offers good choice and the quality was great. Staff was friendly with good enough English. Not very cheap hotel but if you want good 4 star standards then you go no wrong. I will use this hotel again.

Room Tip: Great hotel near Colosseo & Foro Romano.

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding week in Rome. Our parents, siblings and partners also stayed in the hotel and we were so impressed by the hotel staff. The staff were so welcoming and extremely helpful. The hotel is spotless and really luxurious. The staff went above and beyond for my husband and I. The housekeepers even steamed my wedding dress for me before our big day and left a bottle of prosecco for us in our room that night!
The breakfast buffet has a great selection. The facilities are great too (great gym room). It is in a great location.
I would recommend this for couples and family gatherings. We can't wait to go back again.

You literally wake up just behind the Colosseum and Roman Forum in Rome, it´s just about 2 minutes walk there.
The Hotel is midsize with friendly and helpful personell, we had the deluxe room on the second floor facing the yard and it´s really quiet. We slept with open windows and it was quiet. Imagine that in Rome!

The breakfast was surprisingly good with a good selection of items.

We recommend this hotel for your stay in Rome

Reviewed 28 April 2014

The hotel is very convenient for the all the Roman sites especially the Colosseum which you can see from the terrace. There were a good selection of restaurants nearby. We like La Pace del Cervello for its charm and friendly welcome. The staff on reception spoke good english and were very helpful in resolving issues like Boarding passes and tickets. The breakfast was outstanding, everything you might want The hot scrambled eggs were the best we have ever had in a hotel. The room(a double deluxe) was well decorated, not generous in size but that is normal for a central hotel. We asked for a quiet room and were given one at the back which was incredibly quiet for a city. The bathroom was excellent and well equipped with toiletries.

We advise any visitor who does not want to do a tour to buy your inclusive ticket at either the Forum or Palantine entrances. There were long queues at the Colosseum entrance but none at all at the other entrances. The tickets last for two days so you can buy in advance. The tours are mostly in the afternoon so we started early at the Colosseum and then worked our way round the others before they got crowded. The hotel being so close made it easy to buy the tickets and look round the sites. It is not far to walk to all the other notable places of interest such as Spanish Steps and Vatican.

Room Tip: Choose deluxe and ask for a quiet room at the back
