ROCCO FORTE has got himself a slight problem with the naming of his hotels. His latest property is in Berlin and is called the Hotel de Rome. It opens on 1 October. In Rome the Rocco Forte hotel is the de Russie, and yes has a property in Russia too, the Hotel Astoria, St Petersburg. The Berlin hotel takes its name from a luxury property called the Grand Hotel de Rome, which opened in the late 19th century close to the Bebelplatz where the new Hotel de Rome is located. The original 200-room property was built in 1875 by Adolf M”hling, who included the most modern equipment of the time, such as central heating, marble bathrooms and a hydraulic lift, the hotel rapidly becoming the most prominent hotel in Berlin. The new Hotel de Rome will have 146 rooms and suites; each fitted with discreetly concealed state of the art technology, including flat screen televisions and iPod docking stations. The restaurant will open out to the building”s inner courtyard to take advantage of the warmer weather and the hotel”s bar features enviable views over the Bebelplatz.
