Travellers' Choice
The First Roma Dolce seamlessly blends the elegant design of a 19th-century private home with the charms of Via del Corso, one of the most iconic streets of la Dolce Vita in Rome. A boutique and warm residential atmosphere with bespoke 5-star service set the stage for the perfectly crafted stay. Exquisite and refined 23 suites and guest rooms 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, providing a real ‘home-away-from-home’ in the Eternal City. From homemade pastries on arrival, to ‘VELO’, the innovative patisserie-style restaurant, The First Roma Dolce celebrates the Roman passion for pastry. The First Roma Dolce is also the only hotel in the city serving a full English afternoon tea with an Italian twist.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We spent an amazing time in this wonderful hotel, the First Roma Dolce, which is perfectly named. The very central location in this peaceful area is great to enjoy and visit this incredible city. The facilities are so convenient, warm and very clean. The rooms very comfortable and well equipped. The breakfast is stunning and highlights Italy and local product, well presented by the team, and very original ! Not the same experience that you find almost everywhere ! But the most important and value of this great quality coming through the highly professional team always keen to assist with smile, friendly yet very polite, attention to details, and here to give you the best memories. Special thanks to the concierge and reception team (Alina and Merve) and breakfast manager. I definitely recommend this property, in top experiences ! Grazie mille !!

Being in the top 3% of hotels in Rome is quite a feat by anyone’s standards and The First Roma Dolce shows how it’s achieved. From checking in through to checking out, our stay couldn’t have been any better. All staff are personable yet professional, always there for assistance, guidance, suggestions and anything else you need. My husband and I arrived late evening due to flight delay. Plopped on the bed and immediately experienced the must sumptuous bedding and pillows ever. Just wanted to stay put but needed to grab a bite to eat. Next morning’s breakfast, and each consecutive day, was a perfect way to start the day; numerous trays of delights brought to the table, followed by options for hot additions. Nice selection of juices, teas and coffees to suit anyone’s taste. Rodica and Vita are outstanding in their approach to customer service - honestly couldn’t have asked for better. Special thanks to them both for taking such good care of us. Location was great, easily accessible by Metro, an 8 minute walk away. 20-45 minute walk to Colosseum, Roman Forum, Vatican, and Villa Borghese Gallery.

This hotel lives up to the hype. You first notice the incredible smell from the second you walk in. Our room was beautiful and the beds were exceptionally comfy. Housekeeping was always available at any time and thanks to everyone at the front desk and the front door for their service. Special shout out to Alina and Amira at the concierge for always recommending great restaurants and shopping excursions. They booked day trips for us, communicated through WhatsApp if we needed something during the day, and were always available which helped tremendously. The breakfast was truly a treat every day. Can't say enough about our stay and wish we were back in the Eternal City.

I think i was so lucky choosing this hotel. located in via del corso right infront of sephora surrounded by many boutique supermarkets pharmacies and yummy restaurants . The checking in was very smooth and professional we booked the suite but we were upgraded to the balcony suite over looking via del corso. The room was big and the bed was very comfortable. The room comes with techno gym mirror it blew up my mind😍 I have to mention that Chiara , Dave and Amira made the stay even better , they were so helpful in providing restaurants suggestions and booking train tickets and private guide to the Vaticans. I font think i can switch to anywhere else in Rome

The location of this hotel is terrific. I didn't get around to using a lot of the facilities but I found it very quiet and private, which was what I was looking for. All the staff were lovely and welcoming and I found the door staff and room staff exceptional, really kind and perfect at their jobs. Special mention about the smell in the hotel..it's got to be the loviest smelling hotel in the world in each and every part of it and I don't how they do it! :)

The location of the hotel is a prime location. The staff are amazing. Specially. Ameera, David, Kyara ( actually EVERYONE was amazing). We had an upgrade into a suite, which was fully equipped and very comfortable. This was the first time I see a big modern workout machine in the room in a hotel in my life. I would go there again .

Loved our stay here, every single member of staff is friendly and helpful. I've also never had a breakfast as amazing as we did here. Rooms are quiet, spotless and are cleaned twice a day. True there's no view but we didn't stop to look out of the window. Hotel is in the main shopping street which is less hectic than the main sight seeing areas and was perfect for us. Would absolutely stay again
