The First Roma Arte
Situated along a quiet street, The First Roma Arte is a luxury boutique hotel in the heart of the city. Originally a 19th-century nobleman's palace, the 200-year-old building was thoughtfully renovated and transformed into a refined hotel offering a modern, elegant, and intimate setting. Showcasing over 200 works of art curated by the Roman contemporary art gallery, Galleria Mucciaccia, the hotel offers guests a unique on-site art gallery throughout the public areas, guest rooms, and suites.

The property's 29 suites and rooms feature contemporary design with more than 100 original works of art from emerging Italian artists throughout the rooms. There are book cases with carefully selected reads, 42-inch TVs set in mirrors, fine furniture, and sophisticated accents. While spacious bathrooms have Emperador marble and showers.

For dining, Aquolina offers an elegant setting with a menu featuring cuisine by the Michelin-starred Chef Alessandro Narducci. The Aquaroof provides a panoramic rooftop garden setting for an aperitivo, and the Lounge Bar has cocktails, and aperitifs in a stylish setting with ambient lighting, soft music, and contemporary artworks.
