A source of inspiration could not be sweeter: The fine art of patisserie is at the core of the interior concept of The First Roma Dolce Hotels in Rome – and that in a traditional manner.

The 19th Century building was designed by Italian architect and city planner Giuseppe Valadier, who thought of the elliptic shape of the close by Piazza del Popolo and connected it with the Pincio hill and the Borghese gardens.

The hotel itself is located on the famous Via del Corso. On the inside, architect Antonio Marincola honors the historic building with a warm atmosphere and a boutique hotel flair. The Edra chairs made of polycarbonate in the hotel’s Tea Room fit the inspirational source of the house and remind of sweets themselves.

Besides the tasty looking furniture, the Tea Room also offers fines pastry.
