In the very center of Rome, in a late XIX century building, Capo d’Africa 4, in a unique and privileged position, is only few meters away from Colosseo.
The flat has been recently renovated saving all the originals features according to all environmental friendly techniques.
The "White" room and the "Green" room have own personality, the first is the romantic room and is perfect for two people, the second is more large and confortable and is equipped with a king-size bed and an extra bed .
The two rooms have a dedicated shared bathroom.
Silence and privacy are the main characteristics of the flat, for us and for the guests.
The rooms are furnished with care and elegance, are equipped with individually controlled air-conditioning and LCD TV, there is also a coffee corner where you can use a hot tea or herbal tea.
We are in Rome just in front of Colosseo and Fori Imperiali, in the Celio neighborhood, a very quiet but lively and dynamic area, plenty of city sightseeing , unforgettable monuments, traditional restaurants, modern bars and elegant wine testing places.
In the very nearest surroundings , you could visit the ancient Rome’s most famous monuments: Palatino and his Fori, San Pietro in Vincoli church ( with the absolutely famous Michelangelo’s Mose statue ), Basilica San Clemente and more.
But you can simply just walk around at you taste and take a look of Colle Oppio and Villa Celimontana gardens.
By a walking distance you will find Colosseo metro station where you can easily reach all other areas and the rest of the city.
Capo d'Africa 4 is the perfect solution for an extended family visiting Rome for several days. The 3-bedroom, 2 bath apartment is a smart alternative to staying at a hotel (where family accommodations are expensive and hard to find). This modern apartment was clean, attractive, and spacious enough for our group of six (grandparents in the room with private bath, parents and children in the two other rooms with shared bath). We also appreciated the WiFi, dishwasher, refrigerator and air conditioning (used only in late afternoon and evening). The location is very convenient, within a short walking distance to bus stops and Colosseo Metro. I have stayed at another apartment in this neighborhood -- Capo d'Africa 4 is much quieter since it is located on the back side of the neighborhood.
Luca, the landlord, was very helpful and accommodating about everything from payment of our balance to arranging transportation to and from the airport for our children (for 4 people it was the same cost as taking the train). For just two of us, it was easy to take a taxi to Termini, then the fast train to the airport -- or metro to Termini if you don't have much luggage.
There's a small grocery store nearby and several trattorie and a good wine bar on Via Ostilia. We enjoyed Pasquilino for a pizza lunch and Ai Tre Scalini for dinner.
I also recommend Airbnb !!
We had really nice stay at Capo d'Africa. The location is very central, the apartment cozy, clean and spacious. There is amazing family restaurant close to the apartment (La Taverna dei Quaranta) Luca (our host) was very careful and kind.
Would definitely recommend to stay at Capo d'Africa.
Arianna e Luca sono stati molto gentili. Il loro appartamento è molto pulito, carino e ad una decina di passi dal Colosseo. Le camere sono molto curate nei dettagli; la più carina come gusto personale è la bianca, la verde è la più spaziosa e la viola è l'unica con il bagno in camera, anche se il bagno in comune per le altre due camere è molto bello e nuovo, con una meravigliosa doccia a pioggia. Nonostante un problema con il bagno nella camera viola, per il quale l'host si è reso subito disponibile, direi che la nostra esperienza nel B&B in via capo d'africa 4 è stata soddisfacente.
Neben dem Colosseum zu wohnen ist einfach unheimlich schön.Man erreicht alle Sehenswürdigkeiten zu Fuß, hat die U-Bahn und Busse vor der Tür und das Schönste war der Heimweg: immer das beleuchtete Colosseum zum Abschluss.Die Wohnung ist sehr gut ausgestattet, alle Küchenutensilien vorhanden, u.a. ein Geschirrspülter, ein Computer und Radio im Esszimmer. Alles sauber. Arianna war sehr freundlich und unkompliziert. Wir empfehlen dieses Appartment auf jeden Fall weiter.
The apartment was clean and had all kitchen utensils. The air conditioning worked great and was much appreciated in August. The beds were very comfortable as well. My only concern was a slight odor from the master bath which I think was due to a backed up water pipe. It was not obvious unless you were in the bathroom and did not affect the rest of the apartment. The owners were informed and will most likely make the necessary treatments.
My family of 5 estates here and all the rooms very gorgeous. It was clean, easy to communicate with the owners, beautiful and close to many things. The air conditioning was broken in the rooms and it was promptly addressed.and fixed. it was an absolutely wonderful stay!!I will recommend to my friends and family.
