History: Hotel de Rome is a conversion of an existing building constructed in 1889 by architect Ludwig Heim who was appointed master builder of the government. The building housed the head office of Dresdner Bank until 1945 and was partly destroyed during World War II. It 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.
 
Renovation: 2014  - LA BANCA Restaurant & Bar , Bebel Suite
 
Interior design: Together with the designer Tommaso Ziffer, Olga Polizzi created a magnificent and unique interior for the historic building. The architectural features were lovingly restored and in many cases reinterpreted. This is also the case with the historical suites, which are located in the former director of the bank’s offices. Here you can still find original built-in wardrobes, doors, wood panelling and the occasional splendid wooden coffered ceiling. In some of the suites, which also witnessed the Second World War, you may still find shrapnel in the walls and wood panelling.
