I start out every review, I travel for work and am on the road several hundred days a year. I stay over 150 nights per year in hotels. Everything from major chains to high end boutiques. I have a good base line for hotel properties having stayed at over 1,000 different hotels and I have realistic expectations.
The pros: The hotel location is terrific. It's within walking distance of many of the touring things you'll want to see in Rome, as well as a plethora of restaurant choices nearby. The staff were great during our 2 night stay and very accommodating. The rooms are nice with great appointments and amenities. The lobby is grand to walk into, and the spa... is amazing.
The cons: I would give this hotel a 5 star rating, but I have to save those for the top tier of hotels I stay at, like the Ritz in or Peninsula hotels in Tokyo which are on a whole other level. The only con I had was the bed. While I do understand many guests prefer firm mattresses, my bed was hard and uncomfortable. Reminded me of the beds in super cheap hotels in the US, NOT the kind of bed I expect from a 5 star hotel. I also wish the patio was opened up. While it has been a cold spring in Europe, come mid april it should be available for guest use.
In Summary: I really do love this hotel and this was my second stay there. I will stay at this property again, despite the bed.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel de Rome is located on Bebelplatz, off Unter den Linden. It is a conversion of an existing building constructed in 1889 by architect Ludwig Heim (appointed master builder of the government), which housed the head office of Dresdner Bank until 1945. This is one of the few luxury hotels in Berlin located in an original building making use of its full architectural splendour and thereby offering guests an authentic Berlin experience.The ornate and classical design of the original building has been given a contemporary twist by designer Tommaso Ziffer, who also designed the Hotel de Russie in Rome. Tommaso Ziffer has been assisted by architects Aukett + Heese with Olga Polizzi and her design team at Rocco Forte Hotels. ... more less
