The First Luxury Art Hotel in Rome is a chic new venue where standards are high and taste is everything. Fortunately, The First excels on both counts.

The hotel really lives up to its name. There is artwork everywhere. Some of it is huge too. The building acts as part hotel and part art gallery and some of the work is stunning.

The building itself is modern, contemporary and just what you would expect from a prime Rome hotel. The location is excellent, near the Via del Corso and Piazza del Popolo. Itís in a side street, within walking distance so you donít hear too much noise.

ďThe First Luxury Art Hotel is a great base from which to explore one of the finest cities in the world.Ē

Reception was large and the staff were friendly. We were quickly checked-in and escorted to our Junior Suite by a very helpful member of staff. The public areas we saw on the way were spotless and in pristine condition. The hotel is new, but itís obvious a lot of effort goes into keeping it clean.

The suite was a good size with large windows and a lovely marble fireplace. There was a seating area with a coffee table, and a small desk for work. The ceiling was quite high, giving the room an airy feel even if the floor space wasnít huge.

The bathroom was spectacular. It was a symphony in marble. Hard to see at first, but once your eyes adjusted to the pattern of the stone it was lovely. It had a walk-in shower, twin sinks, toilet, bidet and a full-size bath.

The bed was superbly comfortable and we slept very well indeed. The thick curtains kept out the bright Italian sun and the windows kept out any road noise.

The rest of the First Luxury Art Hotel was just as nice. The restaurant was light and well decorated in a thoroughly modern style. A highlight was the roof garden where guests can sit and admire the view of Rome while sipping a cocktail.

Overall, the First Luxury Art Hotel was a great place to stay. It is friendly, efficient and has a nice relaxed atmosphere. It is a great base from which to explore one of the finest cities in the world.
