The 19th-Century building will shelter Rome’s first patisserie-style hotel…
Situated on Via del Corso, ‘The First Roma Dolce’, a new patisserie-themed boutique hotel, is set to open its doors in February 2019. The Dolce will be the newest addition to the ‘First Experience’, which joins three distinctly unique hotels together and emboldens guests to truly experience the city as locals.
The hotel will be housed within a classic 19th-Century building designed by the renowned Italian architect and urban planner Giuseppe Valadier, who is known and widely celebrated for creating the elliptical design of Piazza del Popolo.
“The hotel encourages guests to feel as though they ‘live’ in the city during their trip.”
The boutique hotel will shelter 23 refined suites and guestrooms, with views overlooking the bustling Via del Corso. With particular attention being paid to the contemporary design of the guestrooms and spacious suites, the hotel encourages guests to feel as though they ‘live’ in the city during their trip. State-of-the-art amenities include in-room fitness equipment, and ensure The Dolce will become guests’ ‘home-away-from-home’, offering an elegant yet comfortable and familiar atmosphere whilst visiting the Italian capital.
An innovative patisserie-style restaurant will serve sweet treats from the pasticceria during the summer, whilst offering guests gourmet experiences such as chocolate tastings during the winter months.
Providing the very same award-winning hospitality as its sister property, The First Roma Arte, the two hotels are located less than five minutes walk away from each other. Guests of The First Roma Dolce will be able to enjoy the facilities at The First Roma Arte, including the Michelin-Star restaurant Acquolina and the newly redesigned panoramic rooftop terrace. The ‘home-away-from-home’ concept is threaded through both properties, with guests encouraged to enjoy the unique offerings of each hotel, for real immersion into Roman culture and the intimate ‘First Experience’.
A third hotel, ‘The First Roma Sensi’, will open in late 2019, completing the ‘First Experience’ under the Pavilions Hotels & Resorts collection. The First Roma Dolce is affiliated to Preferred Hotels & Resorts and is a member of the L.V.X collection.
