“Ambience just a little off”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

This place has everything in the,making for the best hotel in berlin. It is in a beautiful period bank building with grand space; it is in the most convenient location while at the same time also quaint and quiet; service is mostly impeccable and the huge rooms have extra high ceiling especially in the 1st or 2nd floor, bath is the size of a small bedroom.

However, even though the rooms are relatively new, they somehow feel tired. The color scheme and the lighting does not help, it just feels a little down beat. It is a shame, the space is just spectacular, it just needs to be freshen up.

Room Tip: 1st or 2nd floor in the original wing for the high ceiling, top floor for the view. For 20 euro ext...

Very nice hotel. Top class service, surroundings, rooms. Centrally located. Very good breakfast buffet, nice roof top bar, beautiful (inside) pool. Less stuffy then some of the other "grand" hotels in Berlin ( Regent, Adlon).

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.
