Capo d'Africa. Many find the modern look and feel of Capo d'Africa—not to mention its plush beds and deep bathtubs—refreshing after a long day's journey through ancient Rome: each room is decorated in warm, muted tones with sleek furniture, stylish accents, and contemporary art. The hotel features a nonsmoking floor, fitness center, and solarium. It sits on a quiet street near the Colosseum, Palatine, Roman Forum, and it's not far from the Metro. A delicious breakfast is served on the rooftop terrace, where you can also enjoy an aperitivo overlooking Rome at the end of your day. And if you're not too tuckered out, you can take a spin at the gym before bed.
