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.

Overview



A short walk from the central boulevard of Unter den Linden is Hotel de Rome, in a building that was once the head office of the Dresdner Bank. Designers Tommaso Ziffer and Olga Polizzi have respected the rich history of the building, maintaining its architectural splendor while adding a contemporary twist. Highlights include the hotel's indoor pool, which is housed in the original bank vault, an impressive ballroom with double-height ceiling and glazed roof and four historic suites (with high ceilings and wood-paneled walls) which were once the offices of the bank directors.

Hotel de Rome in Berlin has 146 large bedrooms including 63 Classic rooms, 32 Deluxe rooms, 14 Superior Deluxe rooms, 25 Junior suites, four Classic suites, three Executive suites, two historical Deluxe suites, two Historic suites and the 120 sq m Bebel suite. Most of the rooms have high ceilings and classical proportions. The Bebel suite at Hotel de Rome has a full-length terrace which overlooks Bebelplatz. All bathrooms have separate walk-in showers and mosaic marble detailing above double ended baths.

The restaurant seats 120 and looks onto a large external terrace which will be used for al fresco dining during the summer months. Our chefs offer a cuisine based on traditional Mediterranean cooking. The bar has a contemporary feel and it features a long bar overlooking Bebelplatz. The Opera Court is a grand room with its original glazed ceiling. It is the focal point for coffee and afternoon tea. During the summer months our roof top terrace offers a breathtaking view over the city.

The impressive ballroom has a double-height ceiling with a glazed roof and accommodates receptions for up to 250 people. Hotel de Rome in Berlin has five meeting rooms and can accommodate up to 160 people. All have natural light, are equipped with the latest technology, and can be accessed via a separate entrance. The Spa has a steam, sauna and relaxation area, and a fully-equipped gym. The original vault of the bank has become a 20 meter swimming pool. A range of therapies and health and beauty treatments are provided in the six treatment rooms.

Berlin is a dynamic and fashionable capital city with a vibrant arts scene, numerous bars and clubs, stately monuments such as the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag, and the remains of the Berlin Wall. Hotel de Rome is centrally located in Mitte, the heart of historic Berlin, opposite the Humboldt University and next to the "Staatsoper unter den Linden" Opera House.
