Modern art and the art of living

Once a convent, and then a school before it became a hotel in 2002, the history of the Hotel Capo d’Africa lives on in the massive walls that give it an air of grandeur and a great sense of calm. But British consultants Ara Design and architect Harry Gregory drew a line under the past when they set out to bring colour and joy back into the heart of the building.

The hotel is owned by a major Rome property-owning family, and offers spacious public areas with a contemporary feel, large terraces on the top floor, and a great many works of art that add a touch of originality to complement the cool, soft house colours of lilac, pistachio and orangey-yellow. Set on the Celio hill, between the Colosseum and the Lateran, the hotel is close to the Villa Celimontana, with its magnificent park that hosts a Jazz festival every summer, sponsored by the hotel.

The rooms are practical and comfortable, understated without being minimalist, colourful and often spacious, especially thanks to their very high ceilings. The blond wood furniture adds warmth. The service is dynamic and friendly, and very proactive in meeting clients’ needs.

The clientele

With a mixed business and tourist clientele, the Capo d'Africa suits a wide range of guests. Its gentle art of living and contemporary style appeal to all those who appreciate modernity when comfort is not forgotten. The dynamic service will please those who love to be given a little attention, and its position means guests can experience Rome almost like a native.
