With a fantastic address on the square of Bebelplatz, Hotel de Rome is housed within a former Dresdner Bank building, dating back to 1889. Notable architectural features have been carefully retained throughout, with more contemporary touches thrown into the mix.

Upon arrival, the ground-floor reception serves as a striking entrance, with pink neon birdcages hanging from the ceiling and roomy black velvet sofas set alongside cherry-red furnishings. The refined interiors of the rooms and suites are somewhat more neutral, apart from pops of colour and vivid art paintings. High stucco ceilings and marble bathrooms add to the sophisticated atmosphere, and the polished suites encompass balconies, looking out over the square.

Back on the ground floor, guests can dabble in classic Italian and Mediterranean dishes at the on-site restaurant, La Banca – a favoured summertime spot due to its enclosed terrace garden. Next door, the La Banca Bar is ideal for a tipple, as is the rooftop terrace, with a sublime view to match.

Hidden in the former jewellery vault of the building is the impressive De Rome Spa, a particularly appealing drawcard for those who seek serenity within the city. Here, you can soak in the pool, enclosed by mosaic columns, and take advantage of the steam room, sauna and fitness centre.
