The First offers the most luxurious stay at such a chic boutique hotel which could double as a modern art gallery The King suite is to die for. So perfectly designed. You'd be forgiven for thinking you were in a Park Lane apartment. The bed is like sleeping on a cloud! The rooftop bar is stylish with incredible views of... More

this contemporary style hotel is in a great location, walking distance to all the great sights. It is unpretentious and classy. The room we had (104) was a good .size, beautifully appointed and the service was fabulous, approachable and helpful. The roof top bar is wonderful. I would highly recommend this hotel.

This endlessly stylish hotel is tucked away on a side street, a stone's throw away from Piazza del Popolo, and a million miles ahead of pretty much any other hotel we have had the pleasure of staying. That isn't to say we haven't stayed in international 5 star hotels before, but, rather, this one achieves an atmosphere and poise, that... More

Cannot fault this place. Amazing rooms amazing service. Our flight was delayed so we missed our dinner at the rooftop restaurant. When we eventually arrived we were met with Prosseco and little bites to eat. The hotel then made a reservation for us at a restaurant that was still serving at midnight.

Fantastic boutique hotel with a great rooftop bar. Service was great and the concierge were very helpful in recommending us places to go during the day and for meals.

Hotel the First, as they call it, was a mixed bag. They said they upgraded us to a suite upon arrival. The room was a good size but had very little natural light.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
