Explore Italy in Style at The First Luxury Art Hotel Roma


By: Five Star Alliance

The First Luxury Art Hotel Roma
Against the splendid backdrop of Rome, there is The First Luxury Art Hotel Roma. At the very heart of the city, this 5-star luxury hotel is just a short walk from the Piazza del Popolo, Via del Corso, and Piazza di Spagna. It is the ideal base for exploring the beautiful Capital while enjoying top-notch accommodations: a truly one of a kind experience.

A thoughtful restoration has turned this 19th century nobleman’s palace into an elegant and refined hotel; the noble lines - that look of aristocratic home - have been preserved, yet at the same time it is welcoming and comfortable. This is the central feature of this art hotel: being aesthetically luxurious while at the same time giving you the delightful sensation of feeling completely at home.

There are impressive pieces of artwork and designer furnishings throughout the common areas and suites: with its permanent and temporary exhibits, each room becomes a small private gallery, yours for a few days.

Now Guests can Book an Italy in Style Offer:

Book a minimum of 3 nights and receive complimentary buffet breakfast, free wifi, and 3 hours private tour to incredible Borghese Gallery and gardens. Entrance tickets for two are included, transfer excluded.

The original sculptures and paintings in the Borghese Gallery date back to Cardinal Scipione's collection, the son of Ortensia Borghese - Paolo V's sister - and of Francesco Caffarelli, though subsequent events over the next three centuries entailing both losses and acquisition have left their mark.

All rates are based on double occupancy and extra person charges may apply. Please be advised that the rates, availability, as well as any extra person charges are subject to change depending on the hotel's policies.
