This is a well situated hotel close to all the sights in the Mitte district. The décor is typical of the Rocco Forte chain. There is a very tranquil pool in the basement. The bedrooms are large and the bathrooms are very well appointed. We liked the breakfast buffet which is served in the elegant Italian restaurant. There is an excellent range of fruit, cereals, bread, cold meats ad cheese and a huge variety of honey and jam.
The last time we stayed in Berlin, we chose the Adlon which is also excellent but I have to say that I much preferred the Hotel de Rome. It is less formal and the staff are more approachable than the Adlon. Overall, a more relaxing place to stay.
I also really liked the look of the rooftop bar although unfortunately frequent showers during our stay meant that it was not open. The downstairs Bebel bar was open and was a very elegant place for a pre-dinner drink.
Next time I am in Berlin, I would be inclined to stay at the Hotel De Rome.
- 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
