Spa de Rome
Previously a jewel vault is now the 800-square-metre Spa de Rome. Built in 1889 with around 400 deposit boxes for jewels, gold and cash, the space is now an oasis of calm and relaxation in the heart of the city.
At the turn of the last century, the well-off people of Berlin would store their valuables here - now, guests enjoy a 20-metre lap pool. The wonderful interplay of colour with the golden Bisazza mosaic gives visitors the impression they are swimming in gold and luxuriating in the past. The black marble tiles on the wall and floor were kept in the same format as the bank's deposit boxes.
A holistic approach, and consequently harmony of the body, spirit and mind, is the philosophy of our spa team. This approach is the foundation for well-being and relaxation.
The only one of its kind in a hotel spa in Germany is the “Tropical Hawaiian Essence”, a nourishing whole-body treatment based on a Hawaiian ritual using organic Ala Lani products from Hawaii including peeling, wrapping and subsequent Lomi-style massage.
The team also specialises in traditional Ayurvedic treatments, which can also be booked with 4 hands by two masseurs. Classic massages and beauty treatments with cosmetic facial treatments, manicures, pedicures, etc., feature as standards in the spa's repertoire.
As well as six treatment rooms, the Spa de Rome has a fitness room with state-of-the-art TechnoGym equipment. A personal trainer is available upon request. Pilates, yoga and personal nutritional advice are also available. A Finnish sauna with coloured light effects, aromatic steam bath, a tranquillity zone with comfortable chairs and a bar with fresh juices, organic teas, water and fruit round off the treats for guests.
In summer, on the 5th floor, the spa has its own sun terrace with comfortable beds for relaxing in the fresh air.
We advise you to set up your appointment prior to your arrival so that we can optimally accommodate your needs. If you are a non-resident a credit card will be required to hold your reservation. For best results, we recommend men to shave on the day of a facial. And for the ladies, shaving is best either the day before or shortly after having a body wrap or scrub.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. This will allow you to familiarise yourself with the surroundings and enjoy a soothing cup of fresh ginger tea before your treatment.
