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.
- 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
