Reviewed May 26, 2013

This is probably one of my favourite hotels in the world. From the stunning location (viewing distance of the book burning memorial) to the dramatic building and the classy decoration accompanied with exquisite attention to detail from all staff members - the Hotel de Rome offers an unequivocal hotel experience. The grand doors leading to the entrance hall with a stunning chandelier let you know you are in one classy establishment. Our family was actually upgraded to a suite which was suitably stylish while keeping in touch with grandeur. The services including the gym and pool were excellent and the food was outstanding. With a huge range of breakfast items on offer and a delicious dinner menu the Hotel de Rome definitely ticked all the boxes. Thoroughly recommend

This hotel is recently renovated in an old bank in central Berlin, a typical Rocco Forte establishment, great spa, everthing works and comfortable. If you want to stay at a nice central Berlin Hotel this would be a good otpion.

My only gripe was housekeeping, nosy and somewhat intrusive.

This is a renovated 5 star Grand Hotel in the old tradition, in an excellent location, with a sensational breakfast, large rooms, well trained staff, a spacious gym with weights and a 20 meter lap pool for those who like to swim. I stayed with 2 daughters aged 16 and12 and they were well looked after. A true Leading Hotel of the World

Discretely located just behind the famous StadtOpera (under extensive reconstruction) and next to the Catholic Cathedral, and stones throw from The Museum Island and The Berliner Dom. This hotel caters to many well known personalities and the Corps Diplomatic, . I personally do not like the somber rooms and corridors in a specific and distinctive modern style. The service is outstanding and the top floor bar is simply a gorgeous spot to enjoy and expensive drink.

In the former Dresner bank, sleeping in the former offices of the directors wirh high ceilings is an experience in itself. Staff is very serviced minded but luckely not into your face; call it professional friendliness with a personal touch!!

Had breakfast, lunch and diner. It is fine but not surprisingly of taste. Wines were better! Coffee was excellent.

Swimmingpool is 20m on a 3 meter wide spot. So if you want to do your laps make it 50 and be earlier so you do not have to share the lane with someone else.

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.

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
