With ornate wrought-iron windows and white-brick faade, this stylish hotel is situated in a central Rome location, two blocks from the Colosseum and the Traiano Park; one km from the Circus Maximus. Dating from the early 20th century, this white-brick building fringed with palm trees stands opposite the fourth-century SS. Quattro Coronati Church. A wall of black roses by Italian artist Paolo Canevari makes a dramatic statement inside, while colorful art displayed in the rest of the marble lobby complements the lilacs and blues of the lounge area. The hotel hosts mainly business people during the week and vacationers on weekends. From two roof terraces, guests can sit among potted lemon trees, eat meals and sip coffee while taking in views of the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and the fourth-century Quattro Coronati Church. Modern cherrywood furnishings complement pastel tones in the air-conditioned guestrooms of the Hotel Capo d’Africa; all rooms also have minibars, cable television, and safes.
