We stayed at the First Hotel over the New Year. First impressions of First are amazing – a beautiful lobby and beautiful staff who take real care of you. Even though we did not care for all of the artwork, there is no doubt that this is a very classy place. Our room was a little small by US standards, but furnished to a high level. More storage space would have been useful, especially in the bedside cabinets, and we found the room to be overheated. The bathroom was lovely. The views from the roof-top terrace are spectacular. The location is great, within walking distance of just about everything, but on a quiet side street so that you away from the noise and bustle of the city centre. A special mention for the restaurant; it has a Michelin star so you would expect it to be good, but it provided us with one of our most memorable meals together. Not cheap, but worth every euro. A truly extraordinary experience, and one we will long treasure.
