“One of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We spent six nights at the Hotel de Rome and the only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. The hotel is very well located, within easy walking distance of many of Berlin's iconic sites. It combines the best of old and new. The original building was a late 19th century bank and many of the rooms and hallways retain the high ceilings and ornate tile floors but the stylishly decorated rooms have every high tech convenience, high-end amenities, and the best air conditioning we have found in our extensive travels through Europe (as Americans, we realize that the ability to turn one's room into a refrigerator is not a universal value, but nonetheless we do find most European air conditioning to be a problem).

The public spaces, including the lobby, dining room and the ground floor bar are tastefully decorated in a modified art deco style. Very calming and evocative. The rooftop bar provides a wonderful panorama of Berlin, yes, including all of the cranes and construction against the background of historic Bebelplatz, the State Opera House, and Museum Island in the distance. Service was simply first rate, from the front desk staff, the concierge staff, to the breakfast and bar staff. High priced, as some others have noted? A bargain given the level of accommodations and service. Simply one of the best urban hotels we have visited in years.

Recently stayed here on a business trip. Great location within walking distance to major sites – Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate, Holocaust Memorial - and the metro. The staff, from the front desk, to the bar to housekeeping could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Similar in quality to the W chain in the US. Very comfortable bed, modern furnishing, well appointed bathroom. I would definitely return.

stayed there for a conference we were hosting so price not a factor. stylish décor, nice small bar. service for breakfast on the slow side so if you are there for business, factor that in. rooms were comfortable however the counter space in the bathroom was very limited which made the bathroom seem somewhat uncomfortable. hotel very well kept up. hotel itself is beautiful and walking distance to museum island and major tourist attractions like the Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, Gestapo headquarters, Berlin wall, etc. there is also a nice roof deck for drinks. my view was nothing special ( I think of a another side of the building). but for the right price would stay here again.

The hotel was very nice and it is clear what you are paying for. It is elegant and stylish. With a very nice terrace on the roof. Theview is disturbed with some constructions around but instead you can swim in the basement where they used to keep gold.

We stayed at this hotel for four nights in August during my birthday celebrations. This hotel is perfectly situated in Mitte close to all the main tourist attractions but far enough away from the general traffic and hubbub.

I want to single out two people that made our stay a memorable one. Benjamin and Anna on the concierge desk were brilliant. They knew so much about Berlin from the main tourist attractions to insider attractions only a local in the know would know. Anna kindly organised a beautiful birthday cake for me which was delivered to my room and also let the restaurant we were dining at know it was my birthday as well. Yes another beautiful cake. Benjamin certainly has his finger on the pulse and provided an impressive and insightful service. He knew everything about 'cool' Berlin. An example of what a concierge at a hotel should be like.

The rooms are great, service is excellent, toiletries fantastic, bar and bartenders very good, breakfasts and waitstaff all exceptional. I can not fault anything about this hotel. Well done Hotel de Rome. Keep up the outstanding work.

Hotel de Rome must be the best hotel in the city. It is perfect from rooms (standard rooms are not too spacious - but very comfortable regardless, suites are awesome), to service to food and we have had a number of events at the hotel - all of which were excellent. The event's and conference team is always at your service and goes the extra mile to ensure you and your guests are satisfied. I personally had also spent an entire day down at the spa with a private Pilates instructor some time ago - and what blissful experience it was. If you are looking to get away from it all - try it. One of the most stunning things to do in Berlin is a glass of champagne at the rooftop terrace of the Hotel de Rome - don't miss out on it. Forget New York - Berlin is the new "mother city" and the Hotel de Rome is the luxury center of it.

Room Tip: If you can afford it - opt for a Junior Suite. Definitely worth it.

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and thought it was great. On arrival, we were upgraded to a room on the 5th floor which was really spacious, with a lovely bathroom. The room was really comfortable and there were complimentary REN toiletries and bottles of water (replaced every day which was nice, as not all hotels do this). The 5th floor overlooks the roof terrace and rooftops of Berlin. Unfortunately the weather during our stay meant that the terrace bar was shut, but we didn't mind too much! The other public areas of the hotel are lovely too - we used the bar a few times which is very relaxed. The drinks weren't cheap but I guess that was to be expected given that this is a Rocco Forte hotel. We didn't eat in the restaurant so can't comment on that - it looked pricey, but there are lots of lovely places to eat nearby - for authentic, delicious German food and craft beers, try Das Meisterstuck on Hausvogteiplatz, really really good and great value for money. The hotel is in an ideal location - it's an easy walk to the Brandenburg Gate or, in another direction, to the Wall Museum/memorial and other museums. All of the staff were very helpful and friendly. All in all we had a great stay here. The one main negative was that you only get 1 hour's free Wifi per day and have to pay for it otherwise - it is a real bugbear of mine that hotels charge you for Wifi, shouldn't really be happening at all any more, especially at these room prices! If we were being really picky I suppose we could also comment that there are no tea and coffee making facilities in the room, which might have been nice. Overall, minor negatives in an otherwise lovely hotel.
