Designer Tommaso Ziffer worked with architects Auket + Heese and Rocco Forte’s Olga Polizzi to put a stunning contemporary twist on the classical former Dresdner Bank, which was built in 1889. The result: An enchanting enclave of 146 high-ceilinged rooms and four historic suites inside the old bank execs’ offices, complete with original wood paneling. The spa is housed within the old jewel vault, transformed from 400 safety deposit boxes into an indoor pool, six treatment rooms, a state-of-the-art workout room and a Finnish sauna. Food and drink options focus on natural Mediterranean ingredients served at Parioli, the Bebel Bar and up on the roof.
In the Area
Once you’ve soaked up the views of surrounding Bebelplatz, venture out to explore the classical architecture of Humboldt University, take in a performance at the State Opera or duck into St. Hedwig’s Cathedral, the seat of the Catholic archbishop in Berlin. Beyond the square, many of the city’s things to see sit nearby, including Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie and Museum Island at the end of scenic Unten den Linden boulevard. The hotel offers a number of VIP tours including Prussian palaces, Marlene Dietrich and the Golden Twenties, Jewish Berlin and communism in East Berlin.
How to Get There
If you are looking for a great hotel, with beautiful, comfortable and clean apartments, a lovely restaurant, a trendy rooftop bar, a fantastic location - right at Bebelplatz and at a walking distance from many of Berlin's top attractions - and price is not a major concern for you. Stop searching, you've found your hotel in Berlin! We stayed for five nights at "Hotel de Rome" last May and really loved every minute! Breakfast, served on the premisses of "La Banca Restaurant" on the ground floor, is absolutely unforgettable - weather permitting, choose a table at its inner patio. And one last remark: We would like to thank immensely Ms. Anna, from the Concierge Desk. Having a fantastic knowledge of Berlin and its attractions, she was extremely helpful and did her utmost to make our trip to this awesome city totally unforgettable. Thank you all at Hotel de Rome!
A beautiful hotel in a great location. Very comfortable beds, loved the pillows! Within walking distance to all the main attractions. I would recommend you stay here. The rooftop bar is Fabulous. Excellent service!
From the welcome at the front door to the farewell from reception Hotel de Rome is the most professional, friendly and caring hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff are smart, friendly, caring, always professional and present without going over the top. Rooms are clean, neat and above all comfortable. The pool is welcoming and relaxing. The restaurant La Banca provides the most wonderful meals. I just keep coming back - sometimes business, sometimes for a break.
My husband and I were here for 5 days last week and thought everything was tops! our room, the location, the staff and service were all excellent. Breakfast was divine. sure they messed up our lunch order one day but things were quickly rectified and all was well. not cheap but a great treat. the concierges were superb!
Room itself was excellent including the Nespresso machine which has become a must for me during my hotel stays.
Hotel overall has all the amenities along with good service, but pricey.
I was happy with Blanca bar but Blanca restaurant was average.
