We arrived at The First to a very warm welcome and a fountain of knowledge provided by Jubair to equip us with the info we needed for a successful stay in Rome. Nothing was too much trouble. From arranging our chauffeured pick-up from the airport, a glass of Prosecco on arrival and even umbrellas readily available at reception for our...

Reviewed 7 April 2015

It was a lovely hotel but the noise from enighbours baffled me. We could even hear what they were saying next door. Surely a five star hotel should have sound proof walls or at least something to not be able to listen to neighbors conversation? Other than that, it was OK.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
