First Arte Hotel Roma
Rome, Lazio, Italy|www.pavilionshotels.com|
Official star rating:
Since opening, this 29-room, 19th-century nobleman’s palace has been winning widespread critical acclaim.
It’s high tech and packed with the latest gadgets, yet manages to retain the exclusive feel of an aristocratic home, and has been beautifully decorated throughout. All the rooms are individually designed, adorned with contemporary artworks selected by local art galleries – all of which are for sale.
There’s a two Michelin-starred restaurant on-site, and a lovely roof terrace with bar, casual restaurant and Rome views – a delight when weather permits.
This private art gallery is perfectly positioned for shopping, eating out and sightseeing. It’s right in the centre of Rome, close to the upscale shopping of Via del Corso (Rome’s answer to Fifth Avenue), and walkable to all Rome’s major sights. Flaminio Metro Station is a five-minute walk.
It’s targeted at creative and business types, but is intimate and stylish enough to be a romantic hideaway too.
Tucked away down a quiet side street, the immediate area is scattered with small hotels and busy restaurants.
Not far away is the church of Santa Maria del Popolo with its mesmerising Caravaggio paintings, and Villa Borghese, Rome’s prettiest public park.
