Hotel de Rome is an elegant base from which to explore Berlin. This former bank has transformed into a luxury space fit for those drawn to discover the cultural curiosities of the city.
Hotel de Rome offers a range of spacious and stylish rooms and suites, all designed with the utmost comfort in mind. Bathrooms are vast with mosaic details, and nail heads add visual interest to curved headboards.
Most of the Classic Rooms look out to St. Hedwig’s Cathedral or the inner courtyard, while the Terrace Suites allow you to take in the views of the Bebelplatz public square from your private, furnished patio. Historical flourishes especially abound in the Humboldt Suite, where the oak-covered ceiling dates back to 1889, when the property was still a bank. Here the large bathroom is decked out floor-to-ceiling with marble and includes a walk-in shower, a freestanding bathtub, and warming under-floor heating.
Discerning guests will especially appreciate the Historic Banker Suite, a former bank conference room where the old phone booths have been repurposed into a wardrobe and bathroom and a secret secluded reading and writing space is found behind a hidden door in the bookcase. Go back to the turn-of-the-century in the Royal Rebel Suite, designed to replicate a Berlin apartment. Contemporary and antique furniture sit side by side, and a private library with thousands of books is the place to kick back and read.
Berlin is a culinary delight, and the hotel’s dining options reflect the city’s eclectic diversity. Sample the Italian menu at La Banca, a stylish space where you can pair delicious spaghetti al pomodoro with an extensive selection of German, French, and Italian wines. The rooftop terrace at Hotel de Rome is an impressive space to soak in the sun of summer. In the cooler months, torches and lanterns keep the space cozy, while a cup of coffee or home-made mulled wine keeps you warm. The chef prepares hearty green cabbage with sausages and Christmas biscuits to bring on the holiday cheer.
