The grand 19th-century headquarters of Dresdner Bank, adjacent to the State Opera on grand Bebelplatz, have been converted into this impressive luxury hotel, which will appeal to jet-setting business folk and couples after a romantic weekend.

Many original features have been retained, including the speckled Terrazzo floors and wrought-iron handrails. The capacious guest rooms are high and handsome, while the old jewellery vault houses the Spa de Rome with saunas, glittering mosaics and lap pool.

The hotel’s restaurant serves some of Berlin’s most exciting Italian food in an ambience of relaxed wealth. The wine list is extensive and the service flawless. On the roof, there’s a rooftop bar for a pre-dinner cocktail.

The location is ideal for regulars, or a first-time sightseer – it’s barely a 15-minute walk to Brandenburg Gate, and five minutes to the nearest metro.

Surrounding area

Hotel de Rome is part of an ensemble of historic buildings around Bebelplatz, which was a showpiece of 18th-century Berlin – Frederick the Great designed the neoclassical square as a tribute to ancient Rome. Tourists and students from the law faculty congregate here during the day, while at night you can hear a pin drop.

There are a few cafes on Hausvogteiplatz, but eating and drinking options are better on pretty Gendarmenmarkt, a five-minute stroll southeast.
