Our humble abode during our recent bmi press trip was the rather lavishly opulent Rocco Forte property, the Hotel de Rome. Which, having featured so much of the famously young, vibrant and achingly hip side of Berlin – take our review of The Michelberger Hotel for example – was a welcome surprise, after all, so much is written about the vivacious rebelliousness of modern East Berlin it’s easy to forget that the city has so much more to offer. Located on Bebelplatz, off Unter den Linden, and having housed the head office of Dresdner Bank until 1945, the elegant property – which dates back to 1889 – is one of the city’s only ‘original’ buildings to be home to a luxury hotel, and that traditional splendour is there to be seen throughout – as classical features are so gracefully fused with an opulent contemporary twist, courtesy of designer Tommaso Ziffer.
