OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Just south of Unter den Linden on Behrenstrasse, this historic building faces the historic square of Bebelplatz. This is a wealthy, cultured area at the heart of city life with Humboldt University opposite and the restored St Hedwig's Cathedral next door. Museumsinsel U-Bahn station is a short walk away and the hotel offers valet parking. The Berlin State Opera is close by as is Gendarmenmarkt, home to the Konzerthaus Berlin and a charming Christmas market.

By plane: direct flights to Berlin Brandenburg from London (1 hour 40 minutes), Manchester (1 hour 55 minutes) and Edinburgh (2 hours 5 minutes). It's a 45-minute drive to the hotel. Parking costs €38 per day. Book flights to Berlin.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

This monumental 1889 building was originally a bank and was built to impress with its marble pillars, mosaic-patterned floors and grand staircase. Hotel de Rome preserves this majesty but adds a theatrical levity reflected in a lobby dominated by oversized black sofas with silver-framed mirrors and a pink neon birdcage.

THE FACILITIES

Flags, doormen and smartly-uniformed staff make arriving here a pleasure. The hotel is popular for weddings, launches and lifestyle events - be sure to have a peek at the grand, chandelier-filled ballroom which was once the central banking hall. There is a lounge for smokers at the front of the hotel. Standard and electric bikes can be hired.

FOOD AND DRINK

German TV chef Tim Mälzer has been the driving force behind the combined bar and restaurant CHIARO since October 2021. It's a buzzy, exciting venue with a summer terrace, striking art and photography and a fashionable clientele. The stimulating menu promises 'Italian cuisine refined with Japanese flavours' while breakfast feels more like brunch with its jazzy sounds and treats such as onion bread, chorizo and prosecco.

CHIARO: elegant restaurant, Italian-Japanese fusion cuisine. Open daily for breakfast and dinner. Open Mon-Fri for lunch, 12-3pm.
