The First Roma Dolce, a new patisserie-themed boutique hotel on Via del Corso, has opened its doors.
Dolce is the newest addition to the First Experience, which joins three distinctly unique hotels together and emboldens guests to experience the city as true locals.
Housed within a 19th-Century palazzo designed by neoclassical architect Giuseppe Valadier, who is renowned for his elliptical layout of Piazza del Popolo, the 23 suites and guestrooms combine the city’s architectural heritage with state-of-the-art modernity.
With interiors by Studio Marincola, the contemporary design, spacious suites, and in-room amenities such as a personal fitness area, encourage guests to feel as though they are residents of the city during a stay.
From homemade pastries on arrival, to Velo, the patisserie-style restaurant, the First Roma Dolce celebrates the Roman passion for pastry.
The new opening is also the only hotel in the city serving a traditional English afternoon tea with an Italian twist.
“We are delighted to be expanding the First Experience with the opening of the First Roma Dolce this spring,” said general manager Daniele Carta.
The First Experience embraces a modern version of La Dolce Vita, which unfolds through the lens of contemporary art and design, and creative gastronomy.
Dolce’s location in the heart of the city allows guests to explore a series of exclusive experiences both within and outside of the hotel.
Located a short distance away from sister hotel, the First Roma Arte, guests staying at Dolce will be able to make the most of the facilities at both hotels, including the Michelin-Star restaurant Acquolina and the newly redesigned panoramic roof-terrace at Arte.
A third hotel, opening in late 2019, will complete the First Experience.
