This should have been a very nice stylish hotel. The staff was friendly, the food good, and the location impeccable. Try the rooftop terrace: good vista, surprisingly good burgers. The rooms are rather large. The pool is rather large for a city hotel and tastefully designed. And the location is perfect - within walking distance to most attractions and i.e. museums.
However, there are some issues: the TV is small and the picture grainy (watching the soccer championship was to feasible); the furniture looks worn and chipped; internet was included in our rate but abysmally slow, making it only acceptable for occasionally checking my mailbox.
Generally, housekeeping could do a better job: We asked for foam-pillows (Elsa/Tempur) and were initially told that there were no more available - an answer I do simply not want to hear in a hotel of this category. After check-in, we went through three rooms until we've found one without hair in the cupboards. And do not inspect the mirrors in the pool area, they look as if they have not been cleaned for a long time.
Please note also that the baths are stylish but not very practically designed - there is little decent storage space and one sink only. Also the lighting is not perfect, rather dim.
- 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
