Close to Unter den Linden, the Opera House, and the Brandenburg Gate, this high-end hotel is housed in a 19th-century building that was the Bank of Dresden until 1945. The building has been renovated while taking its history into consideration. In that respect, the spa, sauna, and swimming pool are installed in the bank's ancient vaults, in the basement, while the Opera Suite is the former office of the prestigious institution's founder. The Hotel de Rome's 146 stylish rooms have high ceilings, oak panelling, saturated colours, and high-tech equipment. La Banca, the superb restaurant on the fifth floor, serves Italian dishes: the spaghetti al pomodoro is the best you will find in the German capital. In summer, the rooftop terrace offers panoramic views of the city.
