Expert review of Capo D'Africa Hotel

Modern design and great service make this Colosseum charmer stand out.

The Capo d’Africa makes a good design alternative to more traditional centro storico hotels. It’s stylish and central – but set back from busy roads. The restfully modern design scheme hinges on strong colours, warm contemporary décor and a striking collection of original paintings and prints by young Italian artists; but the hotel’s real x-factor is the sunny rooftop terrace where breakfast is served, weather permitting.

Location: 

The Colosseum may be right at the end of the road, but the Celio district is a mostly residential enclave, and therefore quieter at night than many other areas of the centre; however, its neighbourhood bars and local trattorias mean you won’t feel like you’re stuck in the suburbs.

Bedrooms: 

For a hotel in central Rome, the 64 bedrooms are mostly pretty spacious. The contemporary décor is pleasant, though it takes few risks, and the beds are large and comfortable, with firm mattresses. The studio suite on the top floor has its own private terrace.

Public areas: 

The public areas are spacious and pleasant – and then there’s that roof terrace.

Eating and drinking: 

Breakfast and light meals are served on a spectacular, sunny rooftop terrace with views over surrounding Medieval buildings.

Leisure facilities: 

There’s a well-equipped gym and a solarium, and kids are well looked after with colouring books, mini-bathrobes and other thoughtful touches.

Service: 

From the waiters at breakfast to the receptionists, the service here in my experience is exceptionally helpful and professional.

Who stays there: 

A mix of tourists and business travellers – the latter drawn by the hotel’s easy taxi/metro access, efficient internet service (charged at 15 euros for 24 hours), and workout room.

Price advice: 

Capo d’Africa rack rates are pricey even for Rome. However internet discounts and special offers bring that down substantially in all but the busiest periods. 

Pros: 
Good location
Attractive roof terrace
Child-friendly
Cons: 
Expensive rack rates
Decor is contemporary but lacks atmosphere
