Spent 5 days at this wonderful hotel in Central ex East Berlin in the middle of historic buildings...as a new Opera house is being built near by it will be the obvious place for visitors to stay.
Being an ex Bank the rooms are tall, spacious and stylish.
The staff are efficient, courteous and helpful.
The meals are top notch with an Italian chef ...this was the time of year for white asparagus and a great deal on the menu were asparagus orientated which was fine by me.
One can walk north across an open square to the Unter den Linden strasse, , the main shopping street , turn left and there is the Brandenburg Gate , turn right and there is the Bundestag with the Reichstag Dome...book ahead for a visit to the a Dome and its restaurant the Kafer with its delightful lunch/ tea.
Further north, past Humbolt University, I walked up University strasse and visited a well preserved segment of that infamous Communist wall.
South one could walk to Checkpoint Charlie...too commercialized for my saste.
Around the Hotel there are lots of restaurants to visit.
My next visit to Berlin...it will be the a Hotel de Rome.
I should have mentioned the concierges ..they were very helpful in every manner , in particular to visit the Reishstag Dome and its restaurant, take your ID, security is tight.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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.The ornate and classical design of the original building has been given a contemporary twist by designer Tommaso Ziffer, who also designed the Hotel de Russie in Rome. Tommaso Ziffer has been assisted by architects Aukett + Heese with Olga Polizzi and her design team at Rocco Forte Hotels. ... more less
