Excellent boutique hotel with plenty of tasteful art in the room suites. The staff were very accommodating, the food was satisfying, and the location could not be beat. Pololo Square was only a few minutes away. And Rome is such a beautiful city with so much history that we spent our holiday in love with the historical sites. I highly recommend staying at this wonderful hotel. At times it felt that the hotel was an extension of the beauty and majesty of the city of Rome.

The Hotel and Staff were excellent.
Good Location with some great restaurants nearby.
Junior Suite was nicely appointed and since the hotel is only two+ years old everything is new.
We had an early morning tour before the breakfast buffet was available and the restaurant was able to pack us a take away that was very good.
We would stay again.

We stayed in Rome for 6 nights at this wonderful hotel in mid to late April. The place is located in an excellent and convenient part of town, in a completely renovated charming building. The property is very small so it feels cozy, romantic and intimate. Upon checking in they agreed to give us a very nice upgrade (we're part of the IPrefer reward program) even thought we booked through Expedia, so we were able to enjoy an amazing deck with views of Rome in our very own room. In general, the service was top notch and everyone was extremely pleasant. Front desk was always happy to help, they booked restaurant reservations, tours (the wine tasting tour to Tuscany was awesome) and activities. My husband and I can't wait to go back! Don't forget to spend sometime on the rooftop deck, the drinks can be a bit pricey but it is absolutely worth it given the great views!

We checked into the First Luxury in early April. Having just travelled over 28 hours, getting upgraded to the First Suite (we had booked a Junior Suite) was a great start to the holiday. Nice firm bed (to recover from the jetlag), two beautifully large bathrooms and two spacious living rooms.
The room was nicely furnished and the art pieces added to the ambience.
The hotel is positioned just north of the shopping/tourist area and just east of the Vatican. This meant that both of these main attractions were in easy walking distance.
The hotel is located in a small laneway though … so when we initially arrived, our taxi pointed us down the wrong path.
Would definitely stay here again.

I arrived on a Sunday in November 2013 at the First Luxury Art Hotel around 9a & was pleasantly greeted by the staff. Unfortunately, my room was not available – understandable since the hotel was at capacity. That afternoon, they notified me that the room was ready & I was pleasantly surprised with the complimentary upgrade to an ‘art suite’. The room was grand - HUGE marble bathroom with spa shower (great water pressure), soaking tub, and luxury amenities. Nice sitting area with a working desk and comfy seating area centered on the decorative fireplace. The bedroom was a very nice size with large walk-in closet and ample storage areas. The private terrace access was a great plus from both the sitting area & bedroom. The staff was quite helpful setting up a private guide for the Vatican tour and restaurant reservations. Location PRIME!! Easy walk to most of the sites & the location quiet…though right around the corner from shop & restaurants. Very pleased with the hotel & will certainly return for future visits to Rome.

We stayed March/April 2013 for our honeymoon. This hotel is truly luxury and the staff is fantastic. Most of the staff speak English, and they are extremely welcoming to Americans. They have no problem calling a cab, giving directions, or making recommendations. Their customer service is on another level - once we arrived the lady who checked us in gave us a tour and the doorman shortly arrived with our bags. Once we got settled I realized I left my comb on the airplane. I called the front desk to request a comb, but they did not have any. However, they said they had no problem going to a local shop to pick one up for me. Within 30 minutes they came to our room with a comb - it was wonderful and free of charge. That set the tone for our great stay. I gave them 4/5 stars because you cannot control your thermostat in the room, so we were very hot at night, even with sleeping with the window open. Had we been able to control our thermostat I'd have not a single complaint. It's definitely worth the stay, not to mention we were walking distance from several shops/restaurants.

Room Tip: get the junior suite - it's spacious and the bathroom was amazing!
